Trying to come up with a favorite weapon, gear, or armor in an anime was actually harder than I thought it would be. But in the end, I chose something rather unconventional.
I ended up going with Kodachi Kuno using her brother, Tatewaki, as a weapon during the Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics competition that’s taking place between her and girl-type Ranma. To me, this has always been one of the memorable moments from Ranma 1/2, since it’s so unexpected that it’s hilarious. And the even more amusing part is that the referee declares that Tatewaki actually counts as a weapon for the match. LOL!
Even though this scene takes place in Episode 13, it’s already been established just how much of a pompous jerk Tatewaki is, so there’s also this small sense of satisfaction seeing him being utilized in this humiliating manner. Yes, I admit that’s a mean thing to say, but I can’t deny that I’ve thought this when I’ve watched this scene.
