Ukyo's eyes.

Postby Noy Telinú » Sun Jun 09, 2013 1:13 am

Since, in canon, Ukyo doesn't seem to have a set eye color, what do you think Ukyo's eyes should be?

Black eyes have appeared in the manga.

Brown in the movies and some anime.

Hazel in anime.

Blue in the Ranma Fighting Song Karuta Album

And green in the newest OVA.

So... which one? What fits her best? O_o

In the manga she has very unusual eyes, drawn (always) differently from the others. Leaves an impression of something sharp, like hawk's:

This, I think, translates to her eyes being of a lighter color. than Ranma's and Akane's. In my mind, by some reason, I always imagine her with lighter brown, almost golden eye against Ranma's and Akane's probably dark brown.

Btw., it's the same with Kodachi, just the pupils are much smaller and eyes much narrower (as she isn't as open a person).

I believe the anime loses this detail, making their eyes standard-issues.

Ranma's eyes look light as well... when a girl at least. Makes sense for the blue eyes then.

But, if Ukyo's eyes seem golden, how can you explain THIS cover?

This seems like quite a mess..

I put in a vote for "other." If there's no real consensus, you're better off picking whichever you feel fits at the time instead of looking at her eyes in every instance to see which color prevailed more often. If that's what it takes, though, I recommend looking at Takahashi's colored illustrations, since you can find them in a collection and thus easy to look through.

Speaking of which, that's why -- for example -- I didn't have any problem with Lawra's latest story, when Ranma was given red eyes: because it's actually quite common for Ranma's female form to have some kind of combination of red or pink hair and eyes in colored illustrations. I'm almost certain that there are more instances of red hair and red/pink eyes together than there are of red hair and blue eyes (like in the anime).

I've seen fan fiction all over the place with eye color for Ranma, Ranma-chan/Ranko, Ukyo, and others.

For example. Ranma dark blue, blue, grey. Ranma-chan light blue & grey. I've even seen fics where male and female form are different.

For Ukyo, I've seen a few, including green, brown, and black.

Even the manga covers would be little help, as they are all different.

I do not see how a agreement can ever be reached on it.

Ranma's eyes look light as well...

No they do not. This is called "highlights", the white spots of reflected light (as opposed to Ukyou's eyes which are always like this: a black outline, a white circle, then a black pupil. Any highlights are always contained inside the pupil.
Here on this image Ukyou has standard-issue eyes.

I believe it can not be reached.

Yeah, it seems we are all split...

But what will be the best color for her, character wise? O_o

I voted green for that, but i also think Cheb´s very light brown/golden, might be good.

I'm leaning more towards green because no one else has green eyes.

*Noy got confused and stopped thinking.*

Green eyes mean what, personality wise?
