This is an entry I wrote for the Anime Marriage Prospects homepage.
Disclaimer: I do not actually advocate trying to take Akari away from Ryouga; I think they are perfect together! This entry was just done for fun to fit the AMP format.
Looks: Definitely one of the kawai characters of Ranma 1/2, even though she doesn't show up until
late is the story. Looks good in anything from a plaid miniskirt to a sundress. And great hair if you're into that
pink stripes thing.
Smarts: Maybe not genius material, but not dumb either. She seems to be doing a fine job of
taking care of her family's traditional business of raising prize-winning sumo pigs. Smart enough to recognize the
need to give Ryouga excellent maps if you expect him to get anywhere.
Personality: Friendly, loyal, a bit emotional. And, of course, she absolutely adores pigs. One of
the more stable characters from Ranma 1/2, although that's not too hard to accomplish. Akari may be prone to trying
to change her personality to suit her partner, but she's so sweet she doesn't need to change. ^_^
Cooking: Not shown in the manga, but she seems to be doing most of the housekeeping for her own
farm, since the only other relative of hers we hear about is her deceased(?) grandfather. Plus, she makes an awesome
batch of home-baked cookies (what more could you ask for?).
Fighting Skills: None to speak of, but she doesn't need any for two reasons. First, her favorite
Sumo pig, Katsunishiki, would defend her from any attacker. Second, she's much to cute and agreeable for anyone to
attack her in the first place.
Special Abilities: All the skills necessary to raise prize-winning pigs.
Competition: Ryouga. This is going to be a tough one. Not only is he perfect for her in that he
turns into a pig, but she is head-over-heels in love with him.
In-Laws: Just her grandfather, who will give you his blessing as long as you can defeat the pig
Katsunishiki. The pig might also count, since he'll certainly be living with you, but Akari can take care of him.
Economics: Well, she's not rich, but apparently the winnings from sumo pig competitions have been
providing enough for her family to live on, so you should do all right.
Sex: She might be a little shy at first, being such an innocent-looking character. But with a
little encouragement, she could become very enthusiastic. Making little "Bweee" and "Oink" noises might turn her
Overall: If you could get Ryouga good and lost, and aren't afraid of pigs, then go for it. Loyal,
loving, and enthusiastic, Akari-chan would be a great catch! In fact, with Akari you could probably lead one of the
most normal lives possible in the Ranma 1/2 universe.
