More big news from Otakon! - Viz announced that they will be re-releasing Ranma 1/2 on DVD and for the first time, ON BLU-RAY! Ranma 1/2 will also start streaming this fall on Viz’s Neon Alley, as well as VizAnime.com. To top it off, Viz will be hosting special Ranma programing this fall at New York City Comic Con.
No specifics or prices were announced, but if they’re anything like the Japanese blu-ray re-release (pictured above), the series could be split into 3 box sets.
This is big news, considering that Ranma 1/2 was once Viz’s flagship title, yet in recent years, they’d let both the manga and the anime go out of print. With this announcement, and their recent announcement of the new Ranma omnibus manga books coming next year, it looks like Viz is getting ready to introduce a whole new generation to the whacky martial arts sex-change comedy so many of us grew to love. As this title is a favorite of mine, you can rest assured I’ll keep you all updated on more info as it becomes available.
