Where can I get Ranma in bulk?

Since Ranma 1/2 is "done" now I was considering getting all 35 volumes. Is there a best place online to do that? I'm hoping for a pretty big discount.

Or should I wait and see if someone releases a "one big package" sort of thing?

Thoughts?

    Maybe you'll get lucky?

    I know nothing of the subject so I don't know if the buy it now is a good price or not.

    Wow.

    That seems like a pretty good deal, actually. I mean it's 36 books for chrissakes.

    That's an ok price. 350.00 is retail so I'd save over 75$. But I'm hoping for a 30% discount or more.

    Well it ends in four days with no bids, so you should perhaps try bidding?

    I don't know if you'll be able to find that without buying from someone who'll stiff you or with the books in awful condition.

    Also,

    Are you certain that this is a series you want to own every book of, however? It gets to be a bit formulaic.

    I owned up to vol 20 but had to abandon them in Europe when I moved back from there. I'm all for screwball comedy.

    I will bid away tho. Thanks, folks.

    Every time I think about Ranma being finished, I feel a little sad. I guess I wanted to stay uninformed and just pretend they'd keep making more of it for all time, like Superman, and everything would stay exactly the same.

    Your wish is granted.
    (meant as in Takahashi is terrible at writing endings that actually conclude anything, and thus you've got 'everything would stay exactly the same,' at least.)

    So I guess it just ended with Ranma still engaged to everyone? Now if they'd just release a one-shot every year or so, or a side-story of a minor character, they could milk this forever.

    If I remember right, when Ranma and Akane get back from whatever quest they were on, Soun's like "Okay, you get married now!", and they're about to, and everyone and their mother crashes the wedding, stops it, and everything goes on as normal.

    You can imagine why I'm in no hurry to see it. I stopped watching it around the fourth season, when male Ranma's VA left. It started getting stupid around then.

    I have to agree that I really don't like Inu-Yasha.

    Urusei Yatsura's still her best work.

    However, I still have the first issue from when the manga came out(simultaneous global release, no less), before it became the most stupidly popular anime ever. I hope to make a killing on it one day.

    Didn't Steve Bennet have something to do with Iny-Yasha? Writing it, or getting it brought to America speedily at the least?

    Because a few years back he was at A-Kon pimping it out really hard. In a related story, I wish I had bought one of the 'I slept with Steve Bennet' shirts they had then.

    I actually like Inu-Yasha a lot. I haven't completed the anime yet and I know how it ends abruptly without resolution, which sucks. Though maybe I should start reading the manga.

    It can't cease to exist if it wasn't there in the first place

    All of her earlier work was big. Ranma is a huge, huge part of the early American otaku movement. I'm pretty sure that, after the anime/manga fad is over, Ranma is going to eclipse Inu-Yasha as what she's known for.

    IY is popular now, but once that fades, there will still be thousands of 40-year-old dudes with that Ranma poster on their wall. (That sure sounds creepy.) John Travolta might fade in and out of the limelight with each new hit/failure, but they'll always go back to mention Saturday Night Fever.

    Ranma is her Hamlet, Inu-Yasha is her Romeo and Juliet.

    I really do wish she could make endings though.

    But some great ideas there.

    You know, without my glasses on, this topic title looks a lot like it's suggesting a Ranma/Hulk series.

    Which would be so awesome.

    I've seen a Ranma/Predator crossover.

    It was surprisingly really good.

    And Ranma was one of my first serieses also. It was a gateway drug for me. Played the SNES game, found out it was based on an anime, then found out she made Urusei Yatsura, saw that, and then saw like six other shows attached to it from AnimEigo's trailers, and from there, lost track.

    Sailor Moon was my first anime, but Ranma got me into the underground stuff.
