as possible. Also, I do watch the non-Manga animes too. I've made a note to those. You

can view them where I watch them or watch them at the end or whatever you want to do,

as you wish.

denoted by the label VVRT-### on the side of the box where ### is the tape number.

The dubbed tapes contain only two episodes per tape. The numbering method for the

subbed TV series is VVRS-###. The subbed tapes have three episodes per tape. This

means that the dubbed TV series has nine tapes, while the subbed TV series has only six

tapes. Starting with The Anything Goes Martial Arts series, Viz made both the subbed and

dubbed tapes have two episodes per tape. The Anything Goes Martial Arts is denoted by

VVRA-###, Hard Battle by VVHB-###, the OAVs by VVRO-###, and the movies by

VVRM-###. For the subtitled videos, Viz added an "S" on the end starting with The

Anything Goes Martial Arts series. So you would see for this series VVRA-###S.

The OAV series is even more confusing for the subtitle and dubbed versions
due to the

fact that Viz switched styles mid-stream. The first two subtitled OAV's
contained three

episodes per tape, while the rest will contain two episodes per tape.
The first two subtitled

tapes are called "Ranma 1/2 The Collector's Edition: The OAVs". The
third tape uses the

same name as the dubbed OAV, in this case "An Akane to Remember". The
next two will

also be named simularly. Therefore, there will be one less tape in
the subtitled version from the

dubbed versions.

For viewing the tapes I'll put on an "A", "B", or "C" on the end to
denote the first, second, or

third episodes of these tapes as needed.

Because of the TV series being different, I'll split the viewing into
a dubbed section and a

subbed section. When I complete all the TV series tapes I'll be able
to stop differentiating

between dubbed and subbed. When I get to the OAV's, I'll put the Subtitled
version tape

numbers in {} style brackets next to the dubbed tape numbers.

If I have made an error, please let me know so I can correct it.

Also do not blame Viz for the ordering. They are following the as aired
order in Japan. It

appears they have very little leeway in this matter, so don't blame
the messenger.

Beyond "Tea For Three", we have 67 episodes to go. At the current production

rate, we'll finish in about the year 2003.
