As the title says, I want to watch this anime in the correct timeline. I've already completed seasons 1 and 2 so there's probably something I've missed. I've got 2 questions. Are the movies, OVA's, specials and other stuff disconnected from the episodes like how the events of the Pokemon movies are never mentioned in the episodes? If not, where does the movies, OVA's, specials and other stuff fit in between the episodes?


About the anime, it skips a lot of canonical chapters in the manga, plus it has too many fillers. On the other hand, most of the OVAs episodes follow the manga not like the movies that are not related to the main story. Even though that I really enjoy the anime, OVAs and movies. I think they are pretty good specially the second movie :) Of course after you finish the anime I would strongly suggest you to read the manga from the beginning. It is worth :D

I think some of the main characters don't show up in the movies where they weren't yet introduced in the anime, but other than that no.

The movies and ovas are disconnected but close to the last seasons. There is one intro theme song of the 3rd or 5th season that suck, don't let that bother you to the point of not finishing the anime.

It had its time. The manga has been finished for 20 years. It'd be incredible to see the series return, but it's somewhat unlikely to happen IMO. Even Sailor Moon and InuYasha had to end at some point.

It's better to let something finish on a good note than let it drag on for ever and ever, degrading the story.

The episodic nature of Ranma makes majority of its episodes pretty disconnected. In general, once the major characters are revealed you can watch them in any order you please, unless it's part of an extended arc (e.g. Pantyhose Taro arc).

In terms of where they fit in, it's safe to say that all the OVAs come after the last anime episode since the first OVA is an adaptation of the arc that comes immediately after the last episode and every subsequent OVA takes one arc from the next manga volume.

In terms of movies, there's no clear indication as to where they fit in aside from the fact that it's some time after all the characters are introduced.

For specials, I can only really vouch for one in particular, "Tendo Family's Annoying Acquaintances!", which supposedly takes place around "Ranma vs. Mousse! To Lose Is To Win" episode.
