Season Six Overview:
Season six was known as "Random Rhapsody" in the United States. Koji Sawai departs as the series director and is replaced by the supremely talented Junji Nishimura, who's work includes You're Under Arrest and Soul Hunter. Nishimura stays on to do the OVAs as well, and the final two seasons rival the OVAs in terms of quality and directorial influence. He brings the focus back to the subtle relationship between Ranma and Akane and uses manga stories much more frequently than Sawai did. Nishimura introduces Hikaru Gosunkugi finally as well as Pantyhose Taro and the Scribble Panda. Ukyo gets some break out episodes, and the winter episodes are extremely well done.
