via Ubu, a new Ranma short is in the making:
The â€œItâ€™s a Rumic Worldâ€ exhibition of manga creator Rumiko Takahashiâ€™s original artwork opened in Tokyoâ€™s upper-class Ginza shopping district on Wednesday with both the previously announced special 30-minute Inuyasha anime short and a new Ranma Â½ anime short. The Ranma Â½ short adapts the Akumu! ShunminkÅ (Nightmare! The Incense of Spring Sleep) story from the manga. This is the first Ranma Â½ animation produced in 12 years.
I have a feeling that it’s going to be a “period” piece, occuring during the mainstream chronology rather than show us any evolution in Ranma and Akane’s relationship. kawaii-kune, indeed.
