Anime, Scifi, Fantasy Fan and Original Fiction
I also heard that she fell in love with someone named Mercurius, even though she did not know who he was, solely because he did extremely well on the exams. True or not? I ask because that seems somewhat shallow, falling in love based on one trait without ever meeting the person it is very similar to those people who fall in love based only on looks, and she is usually not portrayed as a shallow person.
Ami does indeed study quite a bit. But studying isn't the only aspect of her intelligence.three headed dog wrote:I was recently reading a Ranma/ Sailormoon crossover and a few questions popped into my head since I do not know the Sailormoon series very well (most of what I know comes from crossover fan fiction which are not always accurate <--understatement).
Does Ami do anything besides get good grades that shows her extreme intellect? I ask this because getting extremely good grades would not necessarily mean she is extremely smart. The reason I say this is because from what I read her favorite hobby and majority of her time is spent studying (heard she even does it to the point that she studies at concert). If you study all the damn time you should be getting extremely good grades. If she got extremely good grades and didn't study I probably would not question it.
I know she's a fan of mystery novels, but I don't recall anything about reading romance novels..
Does she really read romance novels?
Yes. In Ami-chan's First Love, she slays a monster by herself because she thought it was sabotaging her effort to get the top ranked score in the country. She's very proud of her #1 in the country ranking. It's a good thing there are no international exams.I read that Ami is generally shy, somewhat secretive since she doesn't want to be a bother to others, but she is competitive about one thing and that is grades on exams is that true?
No.I also heard that she fell in love with someone named Mercurius, even though she did not know who he was, solely because he did extremely well on the exams. True or not?
While she is competative, she's more the type to offer to tutor someone than belittle them. She's pretty much the reason why the Inners, with the exception of Rei, are able to pass their entrance exams for Juuban High School. She's quite shy, and combined with her study habits, and her very wealthy mother, has lead to some people thinking she's a snob.She also according to a site I looked at thinks people do not like her because she is smart (the site said the real reason is because they are jealous). Out of idle curiosity does she ever portray herself to be very smart in such a way that other people would dislike her for reasons besides jealously, things like look down on people who do not do as well as her, imply that other people are dumb, be arrogant about her intellect, etc. Basically does she portray her intellect in a way that would trigger Ranma's competitive nature?
Besides what I've mentioned above, she is a fair cook and it has been shown that she prepares her own lunch, but favors food that can be eaten with one hand, so she can hold a book with the other. IIRC, she's demonstrated proficiency at both CPR and mouth-to-mouth, which given her interest in medicine shouldn't be surprising. In the anime, she's also a good singer, but that's not surprising either given her voice actress. Like many children of wealth, she's also demonstrated considerable skill at etiquette.Other than doing well on exams and swimming what skills is she shown to have? Has she displayed skills in things like cooking, first aid, art, music, etc.

Mercurius was Ami's rival for the #1 ranking in Ami-Chan's First Love. The above mentioned monster was very confused when she accused it of being Mercurius right she blasted it. There was a very brief (and completely one sided on his part) "romance" with a psychic named Ryo in the anime. I believe she's gone on record as not having time for love right now.
and an idiot outside of it
Ranma doesn't plan until just before he acts, most of the time.
