As we learned during their announcement at Otakon last month, Viz Media is planning on releasing Ranma 1/2 on Blu-ray and DVD starting early 2014. What wasn’t revealed at that time is the fact that the company is planning on republishing the Ranma 1/2 manga series from beginning to end in a 2-in-1 omnibus format that will be read right to left for the first time ever. The manga releases will also begin in 2014.
Those who can’t wait a few months to see some Ranma 1/2 will be delighted to hear that the company has placed the first four episodes of the series on Hulu and on VizAnime‘s streaming service. These episodes are subtitle only at the moment but they are planning on streaming the English version of the series on Neon Alley sometime this fall.
