As you can see Kasumi herself is agreeing with me.
Shrine about Defending Kasumi's honor and fanfics
Yes. The purpose of this shrine is to defend Kasumi's honor, especially in fanfics.
I have read fanfics long enought that I have detected couple trends in them, and frankly
I don't like how the fair keeper of the Tendo household is mistreated.
Seriously talking: based what I have read, I would say that Kasumi is one of the most
misunderstanded character in Ranma 1/2.
"Silly girl, doesn't do have any martial arts skill and she smiles all the time to
everybody. I bet she's using drugs or something"
I can almost hear that kind of thinking from some of the worst ones. Hear me out:
I am NOT saying that all the fic-writers are pre-adolescent action-fans, but it does
seem like that there are some writers who doesn't seem to understand her role in
Neither I can say that I really know know how Takahashi-sama has meant her manga to read.
But I am pretty sure that he didn't meant that even she smiles all the time, her
hardest chores are cooking and buy groseries, she doesn't have any hidden homicidal
dendercies nor she is some drug junkey.
Now I can hear somebody starting to whine: "But this is a fanfic, I't hasn't nescerally
doesn't have anything to do with original story line", of even "But in realism he would
just simply have to"
Now let me ask you why do you use Ranma cast then? If you want lots of pointless violence and/or sex
you could use characters from "Street fighter" for example.
And for second one: Wake up! this is manga not realism.
The point I want to bring out is: From what I have read and watched in tv/video from
Japanese customs is that Kasumi acts like a Goodnatured normal housewife. From that we
can deduct that Takahasihi brobably meant her as a dose of normality in otherwise quite
chaotic Tendo household. Bearing this in mind it is quite adolescent thing to make him
"frigit bitch homicidal maniac".
