Ranma Wiki

Legend of the Lucky Panda! (幸せのパンダ伝説 Shiawase no Panda Densetsu?) is the 109th episode of Ranma ½ Nettohen.

After a training accident, Genma finds himself in a feudal-esque land where he's worshiped as a deity. What's really strange is that the inhabitants all look very familiar.

  • Hayato's family name is not given in the dub.
  • We never learn the names of Soun's, Nabiki's, Kasumi's, Sasuke's, Happosai's, Cologne's, or the Principal's counterparts.
  • Genma is the only main Tendo resident not to have a feudal counterpart in this episode. Kotaro's parents are not seen anywhere here. Their status is unknown.
  • Kotaro is also the name of Ushinosuke Oshamanbe's steer from Ryoga, Run Into the Sunset. The steer was renamed Botsie in the english dub.
  • It's not clear why the principal's counterpart is with Kanna's (Akane's) family in this setting. He does not seem to have the same family bond with Hayato that his counterpart has with Kuno. It's possible that he's meant to be Kanna's uncle or grandfather or perhaps a servant but it's never directly stated.
  • Hayato in general seems far more villainous than his Furinkan counterpart, more than willing to use lethal force against Genma and Kotaro to get what he wants. He uses a spear rather than a sword for battle.
