    Ranma 1/2 - 01 - 07 - Enter Ryoga! The Eternal "Lost Boy"

    In this episode Ryoga Hibiki is introduced. This character is absolutely hilarious! We find out that Ryoga has been searching for Ranma a very long time to get revenge. There's a flashback and we discover that Ryoga and Ranma went to school together long ago, and there wasn't enough food to go around at lunch time at that school, and Ranma always bested Ryoga. Ryoga arranged a fight with Ranma in the vacant lot behind his own house, which is where the episode gets really funny. It turns out that Ryoga has absolutely no sense of direction! Ranma was waiting in the vacant lot for 3 days before Ryoga finally found his way there! And of course by then, Ranma had waited long enough and left. Ryoga was angered that Ranma "ran away from their fight". This is a must-see episode.moreless

  • NOTES (2)

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Ryoga Hibiki. The name Ryoga can be broken down to mean "good fang" which refers to the fact that Ryoga has fangs. His last name Hibiki means "to echo or resound."

    • The Japanese title of this episode is "Toujou! Eien no mayoigo. Ryouga."


    • Tofu: Pan da?
      This applies to the subtitled edition of the episode. In Japanese, the world "Pan" means bread. The article "Da" is used when mentioning an object. So, when Tofu sees Genma with bread, he says, "Pan da? Omae no panda!" Which is a play on phonetic sounds in that language.
