Ranma Nibun no Ichi
Last Updated: 9/23/00--I went through and made sure all the links were
working and led to the appropriate sites, fixing a lot of the xoom/nbci sites
primarily. I also got around to cleaning up the Alterered Reality section,
so most of the fics are no longer lumped under "Miscellaneous".
In fact, that particular category is completely eliminated.
- While I've attempted to categorize those links that I've listed here on
the basis of broad generalizations, there are stories in all the categories
I've chosen which fit into what I call "Ranma-chan" fics (due to the prevalence of stories that identify Ranma's female form by that name). Stories dealing
with Ranma being either trapped in female form, choosing to be in female form,
or otherwise bringing his female side to the forefront. I've collected
a number of these links, and decided to give them their own section.
- While I've separated these links into different categories, these are my
first impressions of the stories, occasionally done from memory of a story
last read a few months ago. Others are just hard to classify as any
one of these. At any rate, if you think any of these are sorted wrong
I would appreciate hearing from you. As a side note, I've tried to sort
these stories out a bit more thoroughly, placing my favorites towards the
top of any given category and trying to rank them from there. Keep in
mind these are my opinion only, your own may differ.
Alternate Reality Fics
- Second only to those stories found above, Ranma fan fiction which deals
with introducing a change at some point before or during the series and trying
to decide what might have occurred are frequently favorites of mine.
I've separated these into a couple of different categories, though I'm planning
on improving this a bit. I might also separate this into Divergent and
- These are the fics which I've generally labeled as trying to continue the
series or which happen after the series ends without changing any of the events
- These basically are what the header says, pages which are basically what
this is-an Archive. Most of these lists have far more extensive listings
than I do here, though not necessarily organized in any particular manner.
- Ranma 1/2 Superhighway-a
very large and complete index of sites.
- Ranma Fan
Fiction Archive Index.
- FFML Authors
- FFML Mini-Archive
- Crossovers Archive
- The Bet
- What archive of fanfiction would be complete without that staple crop of
crossovers. These are some of the better one's I've found on the Net,
or at least that have caught my eye for a time. I don't really like
fusions so most of these, if not all, are actual crossovers in which Ranma
interacts with the characters that already exist there. As an aside,
some of these may be listed twice, as I've left those stories in which Ranma
is a female here.
Blade of the Immortal-An eternal punishment,
there is at least one logical extension of this to fit Ranma.
DragonBall-What could Ranma do in this world
of super powered fighters? Grow of course.
Evangelion and Ranma seem like opposites, but opposites attract at times.
Futaba-kun-The more the merrier right?
These attempt to apply this precept to gender switching boys.
Magic Knight Rayearth-Most everyone seems to
see a remarkable resemblance between Hikaru and Ranma-chan that draws them
to this crossover.
Matrix-Ranma and Co. don't
live in the most believable of circumstances, here there's a reason why.
Multiple-A variety of
anime stars cross paths with Ranma and Co. in these.
Nuku Nuku-One beautiful
woman with the brain of a cat, combine with the Neko-ken and shake well.
Oh, My Goddess-Wishes, what more has one to
Pokemon-Not common, but with the popularity
this series shows it had to happen sometime.
Sailor Moon-Who wouldn't
want to see Ranma in a fuku?.
Slayers-Hmm, well, Lina and Ranma have similar
eating habits at the least...
Tenchi Muyo-Tenchi and Ranma have at least one
point in common, or perhaps one problem in common would be a better
Urusei Yatsura-Takahashi's first work is crossed
with what is probably her most popular from time to time.
Wheel of Time-what can
I say? It's my favorite series of books; I had to search for some.
