Ranma 1/2 Anime and Manga Info!

This is something that I did on the spur of the moment, so I'm sure that it's not quite right yet. But I decided to count up the amount of times that each character appears in a story. This means even characters that only appear for one page, not just the main characters in that story! The results were somewhat suprising to me, so I thought that I'd share them with you.

I counted it in terms of stories, rather than volumes or chapters. What I call the stories are shown at the end. There are 113 stories in all.

I may have miscounted somewhere along the line, or marked down a character when it was ment to be the character next to him/her... But I am not going to go over it again, and I don't think that it will make much difference either way. So if anyone wants to check over these figures, go for it ...!

But, here's the listing:

Name Times Vol
Ranma (RS) 113 #1
Akane (AT) 111 #1
Genma (GS) 95 #1
Kasumi (KT) 77 #1
Souun (ST) 76 #1
Nabiki (NT) 69 #1
Happousai (H) 35 #7
Kunou (TK) 33 #1
Ryouga (RH) 33 #2
Shampoo (S) 31 #4
Ukyou (U) 24 #9
Cologne (C) 23 #5
Mousse (M) 17 #5
Hinako (HN) 11 #25
Kodachi (KK) 10 #3
Nodoka (NS) 8 #22
Guide (G) 8 #1
Kunou-kouchou (K) 7 #12
Gosunkugi (HG) 7 #5
Toufuu (TO) 5 #2
Akari (AU) 4 #30
Konatsu (Kon) 3 #35
Tarou (PT) 3 #18
Bakeneko (B) 2 #14

Well, that's it. There's probably a whole heap of errors in the above, and I've probably added up stuff wrong here and there, but I can't be bothered editing it myself. Anyone else want to have a go, and correct it for me? If so, reply to the e-mail address above! ^_^

Thanks to Mac for the picture!


Now for something somewhat different. Apon reading a book about Japanese society, specifically on women and society, I wondered how the characters from Ranma 1/2 would fit into Japanese society. I have entitled my little musing Ranma 1/2 in Japanese Society. Feel free to give me comments and corrections, please!
