"It’s a Rumic World" — Where Inuyasha meets male-Ranma and Ataru hits on Kagome and female-Ranma!

I’m sure most of you have heard about the exhibition going around Japan with three new OVA’s — one for Inuyasha, one for Urusei Yatsura, and one for Ranma 1/2. While no one knows if these will come to DVD or not, I only recently learned of a low-res copy of the opening sequence being available on YouTube (for who knows how long) which has a meeting of Inuyasha and Kagome from Inuyasha, male and female versions of Ranma from Ranma 1/2, and finally Lum and Ataru from Urusei Yatsura.

If you haven’t at least seen parts of all three titles, this won’t mean a thing to you. However, if like me you’ve seen all three (though I’m still working through Urusei Yatsura), then I’m guessing you found this to be pretty darn funny. Ataru’s hitting on Kagome and female-Ranma was to be expected (but still amused me). However, Inuyasha starting to attack Lum for being an oni as well as the joke when Inuyasha and male-Ranma talked (they have the same seiyuu) just cracked me up.

 

I really do hope the decision will be made to turn this into a DVD or Blu-Ray once the exhibition is over. Somehow, I can’t imagine the Japanese wouldn’t do that, seeing as how they rather enjoy getting the otaku to pay through the nose for stuff.

Update 7-June-2015: They did do this, creating an OVA for Inuyasha, Ranma 1/2, and Urusei Yatsura.  You can read my Urusei Yatsura review here. I’ll update again when I see the other two.

    Not if you don’t find it funny. ^_~ I did find it funny, but that’s me.

    I’m surprised Ataru hit on Female Ranma, I thought he wouldn’t because he could tell she wasn’t a real girl like with Ryuunosuke’s Fiance, Nagisa.

      😆 😆 I hadn’t thought about that until you mentioned it, and now I’m laughing like crazy. 😀

      That being said, I think I understand the difference. Nagisa was pure trap — 100% male, including wedding tackle. So in that case, Ataru and Shuutaro sensed this was a dude, not a babe.

      With Ranma, it is a bit different. When Ranma changes to female form, he is 100% female physically, even if inside, he’s a dude. In this regard, Ataru doesn’t care about the inside being a dude, providing the outside is 100% female.

      I’m really annoyed to see the video was yanked. *_*

      I did look and it seems that of the three OVA’s created (one for Inuyasha, one for Ranma 1/2, and one for Urusei Yatsura), the Ranma 1/2 one was unofficially subbed. Oh, the Urusei Yatsura one was too, though it wasn’t flagged properly.
