  • Ranma 1/2 mangaka and anime cast visit the Ranma 1/2 cafe in Tokyo

    For more than two decades now, Rumiko Takahashi’s Ranma 1/2 has entertained fans both young and old. Now, the Ranma 1/2 Cafe has opened in Tokyo, and it doesn’t just give fans a nostalgic feel, but free food as well. Recently, the cafe hosted people who might know more about the franchise than any other. This is because creator Rumiko Takahashi stopped by the Ranma 1/2 cafe, and she brought the anime’s voice cast along.

    The group seems to have a lot of fun reminiscing about the old days too! Noriko Hidaka and Kappei Yamagushi even recreated a few of their poses with some of the exhibits.

    Akane’s seiyuu also posed with a large picture of her character. Akane, meet Akane…

    #らんまカフェ にみんなで行って来ました❣️ アニメの第1話やキャラソンが流れていたり、作品にちなんだメニューがあったり、そこここにキャラクターが展示されていたり、とてもとても懐かしかったです😂 みんなでメニューを選んだり、自分のキャラクターにサインをしたりして楽しいひと時を過ごしました☺️💕 グッズもたくさんあって、私も大きなお買い物をしちゃいました😱 ❤️ 素敵な機会を作ってくださった小プロさんとらんまカフェさんに感謝感謝です🙏✨✨ #らんま½ #高橋留美子 先生 #同窓会 #懐かしい #みんな若い #楽しかったね #思い出 #ウキウキ #ワクワク #アニメ

    And if that’s not enough, Male Ranma also posted this picture of him and his Akane together wearing matching jackets…

    Even Shampoo’s seiyuu, Rei Sakuma, got in on the act. She even carried around her character’s signature ramen delivery box from Neko Cafe.

    The other seiyuu seem to be having fun as well.

    In the end, they all autographed a huge wall art to commemorate their visit.

    And if you want to visit the Ranma 1/2 Cafe, better head to Ikebukuro Parco’s The Guest Restaurant. However, you better get there before 25th February, because they’re only offering it for a limited time.
