Akane Tendo | Love Interest Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Ryoga Hibiki developed a romantic interest in Akane Tendo when she took his cursed form as a pet, innocently unaware that the pig was truly a human in cursed. So, I very admire the love story of Ranma and Akane. It almost feels like a "love -hate" relationship; they can´t stand each other, but they . episodes (the number of fillers don't help the "status quo reboot" sensation, I'm sure). After becoming further upset by his insults, their engagement was not off to a good start. With time, both Akane and her relationship with Ranma mellow out.
But what about the real Akanes? How many girls and women believe that they have somehow failed at womanhood? How many believe that they aren't cute, pretty, beautiful, or otherwise desirable? How many believe that they will never be married, because no one could possibly love them that much? How many married women believe they still don't measure up? When Ranma tells Akane that she's not cute, or that she's otherwise unfeminine, he tells a lie.
It's not a lie just because he really thinks she's cute. It's a lie because she is a woman.
The mangaka, Takahashi, created her to be lovely. And he created her in the image of real women, who are all the more majestic, because we were created by God himself, in his image. God created man in his image, too, and men are thus amazing.
But that's a different topic. We're beautiful by nature, both on the outside and inside, although we don't always feel like we can show it.
We're not just desirable. Each one of us. It doesn't matter if we, like Akane, can beat up boys, and it doesn't even matter if we've beaten up boys we really shouldn't have. But we're still feminine. We're still passionately loved and pursued by God. I don't care if they mean it, and I don't care if the perpetrator is just an anime character. Because girls need to be told that they are lovely. We're strong, but we're also breakable.
Too many women have been broken with the lie, "you're not enough of a woman. They deny their need to know that they are beautiful and loved. Let me speak to the women reading this blog: Never feel silly for wanting to know that you are beautiful, you are loved, and you are womanly. If you doubt that any of this is true about you, and you're hurting because of it, then please, know that your hurt is real, and it is worth crying over.
You don't have to believe the lies. Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul. This book, written by John and Stasi Eldredge, has been popular for years now, and rightly so. It's not like they have all the answers, but they seem to have a pretty Biblical perspective on who women are and what we need—not what we should be doing, but what we desire and why.
My Ranma for Akane Page
This book hasn't told me very much that's new, but it's affirmed what I already know about myself and other women. It gives a little extra confidence to what I'm writing in this post.
Here's a taste of what I read in the chapter called "Beauty to Unveil": Somewhere down deep, we know it to be true. Most of our shame comes from this knowing and feeling that we have failed here. So listen to this: It was given to her by God. It was given to you" p.
That's something internal, unremovable. It cannot be gained with cooking skills, makeup, or a quiet demeanor. It can, however, be covered up, as the Eldredges explain. That's why beauty is something we unveil. We are image-bearers of a beautiful God, but sometimes our beauty gets hidden, even from ourselves. Our doubts get in the way.
We hide our beauty, or try to put on artificial beauty, or otherwise raise our defenses. If beauty is our essence, that means it's a core part of us. Ranma seemingly being interested in other girls, being rude to Akane, being a pervert, or things that would hint about their relationship i.
Their arguments sometimes start from little, but Ranma is a bit insensitive can be pretty bad at times, though he often realizes it later and has this amazing ability to say something which is or mostly is true, but in a very direct and insulting way though he probably doesn't mean it as much as he intends or at all.
This often results in Akane beating up his face a little, hammering on the head, or kicking him into the distance though rarely to the tune of 'Ranma no baka' as some fan-fics might have you believe - she often thinks of him as a 'baka' when he isn't around. Because Akane has a flash-fire temper, their arguments are often over very quickly, and since Akane is reasonably forgiving once she's calmed down and knows the whole story then things will be back to normal.
Unfortunately, it is hard to figure out just how much they argue under normal circumstances, as we don't see enough of this. However, they certainly don't fight all the time, or even most of the time, maybe about once a day, if that So why doesn't Ranma ditch Akane? The short answer is that he loves Akane, and also, Rumiko Takahashi has stated that they will marry. Possible reasons why he won't marry specific people: But since Akane is deemed the main girl she is destined to win Ranma, no mater how forced it may seem.
This is only one of many problems I see with them being together but I see a much bigger problem here and it's one that all the Tendo's and Saotome's are guilty of.
What I personally think about Ranma and Akane's relationship | Ranma1/2 Amino Amino
There seems to be a blatant double standard which is always in favor of Akane. I'm well aware that Ranma, is in large part, deserving of a smack or two when he's being a jerk or completely insensitive. What about the times when Akane's just overreacting? For instance; When Shampoo happens to come across Ranma she will usually run him over with her bike and latch onto him with a death grip hug.
It's quite obvious that Ranma is unhappy and desperately wants to get away from her. However, Akane lets her irrational jealousy get the better of her every time and will beats the tar out of him or bop him on the head. The beatings are also usually followed by some rude remark like "pervert! In he dub version, when Ranma protests that it was Happosie who broke the boat Akane retorts by saying "It's the same thing.
The unfortunate thing is that Akane doesn't give Ranma the benefit of the doubt or allow him to explain the situation. In her eyes he's automatically labeled a pervert and a jerk.
Akane however has 'intentionally' used Ryouga multiple times to get at Ranma and make him jealous. Something which Ranma has never done to Akane. In the 'Tunnel of Lost Love" arc. Ukyo pretends to be sick to get Ryouga's attention but Ranma comes to her aid instead and offers to give her a piggy back ride.
Akane easily gets jealous and decides to run of with Ryouga to make Ranma jealous. It is perfectly fine for her to beat him, insult him and generally inflict torment upon him, but he doesn't dare try and to do the same to her because of what the fallout will be from the other Tendo's, from his own parents, and even from characters like Ryoga and Dr.
Akane is basically given free reign to trample over Ranma in whatever ways she likes, but everyone Ranma has major contact with exept for his other fiancees sees nothing wrong with this and forces Ranma to go along with it without complaint. It's essentially always Ranma's fault until Akane can calm down enough to apologies which can take day's sometimes.
While it IS the family's fault for supporting and encouraging Akane's bad behavior, I still find her behavior in this matter repugnant.
Akane still has to take some personal responsibility for her own actions and she seems to see absolutely nothing wrong with the way she treats Ranma, despite it being unfair a lot of the time. If anything, she seems to prefer listening to others who back her up and make her out as always being in the right. A good example of this is the fight with her at the start of the Nabiki- Ranma's Fiancee storyline. Ranma, literally, did nothing to get Akane mad - he came into her room to apologies for using a piece of embroidery he'd mistaken for an old rag to clean the dojo and commented that it looked like she'd forgotten to stitch on the letter "C" when Nabiki asked if she'd misspelled the word "cat".
Akane is mad at Nabiki for stealing all of her clothes, and because Ranma makes one trivial barely-insult along with a deed he did apologies for- using it as a rag in the first placeshe hits him. After dinner, Kasumi, Soun and Nabiki all pretty much tell him to apologies to her. Nobody even suggests that Nabiki should apologize and they outright deny it when Ranma brings it up. While both Shampoo and Ukyou may be similarly over-possessive of him; they usually show their over-possessiveness by trying to get closer to him, rather than beating him up for even looking at another girl in the wrong way.
