Ranma 1_2: Kunou vs Ryouga by SractheNinja Ranma 1_2: Kunou vs Ryouga by SractheNinja

Hey again guys!

I've been watching quite a bit of Ranma online lately, and it's got me doing all sorts of things. This, for one. My two favorite characters, about to go at eachothers' throats. It's a fight I really would have loved to see. Admittedly, a few times throughout the series, they sorta met and maybe exchanged a blow or two, but Ranma 1/2's not much one for long drawn out battles. So these two never got to go at it, like I would have liked to see. Ah well. Isn't that what fanart's for?

And what else would they fight over, but the lovely hand of Akane Tendou?

So, for those who don't know Ranma 1/2, I'll do introduction.

On the left, we have Tatewaki Kunou, the Blue Thunder of Furinkan High, age 17. Captain of the Kendou club, and obsessed wannabe suitor of Akane Tendou, and the mysterious "Pig-tailed Girl." He has a predilection for poetry and classy talk (which is where I get it from) His primary weapon is a bokken/bokuto or wooken sword.

Then on the right, is Ryouga Hibiki, eternally lost boy, and primary rival of Ranma, age 16. He has a major crush on Akane Tendou, as well. Wields a multitude of weapons, such as a ridiculously heavy umbrella, throwing bandannas, and a once-used very sharp belt.

And so here they are, standing, dramatically in the sunset, preparing to do battle.

They're my two favorite Ranma characters and I can scarcely decide who I like more. I WOULD HAVE THEM BOTH! <-- Kunou joke...

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, and I hope you all enjoy it.


HOIST WITH MY OWN PETARD! <-- Another Kunou joke...

thing is about Kuno is that he would be absolutly freaking scary if he got over his ego. This is a guy who destroyes concrete buildings with musle power alone. If he droped his ego enough to learn ki the man would be top teir easy.

I've theorized this for a while now. Good to see someone else thought of it too ^_^

Kuno: Ah, perfect, truly a lot of wonder all bundled up into one blameless demonstrate. Akane Tendo's honor, and that of the Pig-tailed goddess, should, in all wise, I'd think, should be pleased at the opportunity given to them both by the hands of he who will smite the lustful eyes of surfaced heart. And yet, thou, darling Akane, with your firm will, and physical health, will be to me a flower, dominating even the thunders of wrath with your innocence. Pig-tailed girl, wonderful in both site, and internal beautiful. Bursting with fiery spirit. Oh, that I am in battle with one who is so inferior to ever having an opportunity with either of thee.

Ryoga: Hush, idiot. Ranma Saotome is the only man who stands between me and Akane, and what... you don't even know the Pig-tailed girl? Akane is mine, and after I send Ranma to the darkest depths of Hell, then she'll know that I am the one who is for her! I've been power bombing boar's in the lonely mountains of Japan all month, and you think you, and your lousy stick, have a chance against this kind of strength? Bring it on, and may the best man win!

Me: BIG fan of Ranma 1/2 (I own the manga's, and have watched through the TV series several times! I've been a Ranma 1/2 fan now for not 1, not 2, not 3, but 11 years! Ryoga is my favorite character, Akane is my favorite female character, and despite what I think of that jerk, Saotome, who not only has no honor to show up for a fight at the appointed time, but also had the nerve to run off to China with his father to make sure that the fight was completely avoided!

kuno is the man! XD I love him! and p-chan, i mean, ryoga, is quite amazing too. XD
gromhellscrea12 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
Ryuga..a respectable guy. But Kuno? Just curious, why the hell do you like the Blue Thunder, or as I like to call him, the man blowing his own horn? Aside from somewhat dramatic speeches, he's a rather forgettable annoyance..
kurenai-anemone Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
YES! A Kuno Fan!
This is funny and so true. :3
I have to admit that Ryoga would most definetly win this fight. xDD

Hibiki! Kick his ass!
emochick007 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2008
That is awsome. I love the way you've done Ryoga's headband... And the way you described him. You've reminded me to get off my ass and watch Ranma! Usually, only chocolate and high speed internet can do that.

....My darling Ramna, I'm comming for you!

:blackrose: Ohohohohohohoho! (<-- Bad Kodachi joke)

I disagree. In the later parts of the Ranma Series, you do get lots of long, crazy battles.

But yeah, come to think of it, it's a wonder these two never had a proper match.

aww love it!! i didn't see ranma since well.. i used too see it when i was on the first grades of school... there were really good years.. i mean, i was like 10 and i was like " hey put channel 2 for see ranma 1/2". :giggle:. poor ryouga, he always gets lost and kunou is obsessed with akane.. I mean i will not support the idea of fight with all the guys of my school for have a date with the one who defeat me XD

(sorry for my english ^^;)
Ah Kunou was always my favorite though I always had a sensitive spot for Ryoga.
E-vay Featured By Owner May 27, 2008  Hobbyist Filmographer

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE RANMA 1/2!!!!!! I'm already in season 2 :heart:
thank you SOOOOO SOO SOOOO much for pointing out the show for me!!! :love:

This is awesome, btw

:iconflowerdanceplz: Ryoga is AMAZING! He's one of my favorite characters! And Kunou cracks me up :rofl:
SractheNinja Featured By Owner May 28, 2008

I'm so glad you like it! I thought you would and to hear that you like it THAT much brings me such joy ^___^ There is little that brings one more joy than sharing joy with others!

Thank you! Hahah awesome to hear that you like them both! So who are your favs so far? :D
E-vay Featured By Owner May 29, 2008  Hobbyist Filmographer
Oh boy... Well for guys Ryoga is probably my absolute favorite, though I also really like Akane's dad, Ranma (not the best, but he's still cool), Kuno, and Mousse (HE'S AMAZING!!!)
For girls, I have to say Akane. She's just really cool, though I think she gets too "Ranma hates me, Ranma hates me" too much... I also like Nabiki (SP?) cuz she reminds me of my friends

I have more favs but i can't think of them atm

sorry for the rambling ^^;
SractheNinja Featured By Owner May 29, 2008
Heheh I thought Ryouga might be your fav X3 He's just so cooool! And Mr. Tendo's so funneh XP I agree, Ranma's cool, though he's not my fav. Glad to hear you like Kunou. I know a lot of people who hate him XD Oooh that Mousse. He is one cool fellow.

Hahah yeah Akane's cool. She just needs to calm down sometimes XD LOL You've got Nabiki friends? Gotta hold onto your money XP

Naaah nothing to apologize for! Ranma rambling is one of the things I enjoy most in life. I do it all the time! XD

Kursunada Featured By Owner May 13, 2008
Oh my gosh, I loved Ranma 1/2 when I was a kid! (well, when I was a much younger kid lol)

Hmmm, I really like Ryouga, so I'm rooting for him! Unless he runs off in a completely random direction haha (sorta random: btw I remember there was this one part where Ryouga went in some old lady's house but still couldn't find the front door hours later :rofl:)
