Ranma Saotome and Akane Tendo are officially making a comeback as a new Ranma 1/2 anime adaptation is in the works.

Following the Urusei Yatsura remake, it’s about time for the iconic Ranma Saotome to once again show off the curse of Jusenkyo and prove that it’s not as bad as it seems.

Rumiko Takahashi’s Ranma 1/2 Manga Receives New Anime Adaptation

The long wait is over for classic anime fans, as Rumiko Takahashi’s Ranma 1/2 manga finally gets a new anime adaptation.

The announcement was made through the newly opened X (formerly Twitter) account of the new Ranma 1/2 anime series.

A new video has also been released on the official YouTube channel of Weekly Shonen Sunday that shows some panels from the beloved classic manga series.

Ranma 1/2 first captivated audiences in the late 1980s with its unique blend of comedy, romance, and martial arts.

Now that it’s making a comeback, the new Ranma 1/2 anime is expected to capture the essence of Takahashi's work, including the beloved characters and storylines that made the series a cultural phenomenon.

New Ranma 1/2 Anime Release Date Predictions

The exact release date of the new Ranma 1/2 anime is not yet confirmed since details are still scant and a confirmation announcement has just been made.

The good news is that more details will be announced about the new anime on July 17, which could reveal new information about its cast, staff, studio, and perhaps even some clue about its release date.

Previously, Rumiko Takahashi’s Urusei Yatsura remake was announced in January 2022. Nearly 10 months later, the anime was released as part of the fall 2022 season.

It’s possible that the new Ranma 1/2 anime could follow the same release pattern. If so, it is expected that the beloved classic anime will most likely return sometime between March and April 2025.

What to Expect from the New Ranma 1/2 Anime

Similar to the Urusei Yatsura anime remake, the new Ranma 1/2 anime could adapt the best stories from the beloved manga series.

From Kuno challenging the female Ranma in a martial arts competition to Akane and Ranma joining a skating competition, Rumiko Takahashi’s Ranma 1/2 manga series has so much content for the new anime to adapt.

It’s also expected that fan-favorite characters such as Shampoo, Ryouga Hibiki, Ukyo Kuonji, Tatewaki Kuno, and Happosai would return, as they have vital roles in the story of the action, comedy, fantasy, and ecchi manga series.
