Ranma 1/2: Byakuran Aika is an adventure/action game based on the anime series of the same name by manga writer Rumiko Takahashi. The game is designed to look as if you were watching any Ranma 1/2 episode or film, with the only difference that it will let you (in the role of Ranma) take active action in some points, from choosing on a list what to do or what to talk about with someone. Then, there's the element that decides whether you advance in the game or not, the fighting scenes. These will not be of the usual kind, but more like a Janken game, where rock, scissors and paper are substituted by attacks or blockings. Strong attacks will consume your KI bar but if they go in the right patch they will help a lot in reducing your rival's energy bar.
