  • Great episode

    9.5
    This episode was all right, but of course it has its flaws. It started great, Ranma wants to find out why Shampoo was mad at him. He did all right until he started saying that he was losing his power over women. The only time Ranma has ever cared about women was when he was influenced by that magical bandage. Any way, he goes and forces Shampoo to love him by Amazon law, and I don't understand how he could have gone so low. Cologne later uses Shampoo's condition to try and marry her to Ranma, and it would have worked if Mousse hadn't intervened. In the end everything returned to normalmoreless
  • Even an Ego as big as Ranma's couldn't take him this far.

    I watched this OAV before finishing all of the seasons and thought it was out of character, so I finished the seasons and watched it again. Although I can see how Ranma's ego got bigger as the seasons progressed, I still think this OAV was a little bit over the top for him. Basically, Shampoo unknowingly puts on a brooch which makes her have opposite feelings. In other words, she hates Ranma while wearing it. Ranma and Akane realize something is wrong right away, but Ranma decides maybe he has 'lost his touch' with women and publicly tries to get her to love him again. After watching 161 episodes of Ranma trying to get Shampoo off his back, this episode just struck me as strange.moreless
