Imagine a character who visually looks like he comes from Inuyasha, is a prince with cooler armor than Dragon Ball Z’s Vegita, and uh… well, has the same exact curse as Ranma, and you have the bad ass character Herb.
Herb, is only in the Ranma 1/2’s manga, which is a real shame. Herb is, however, he is in the better SNES Ranma fighting game, Ranma 1/2: Chougi Ranbu Hen as you can see in the video below:
Herb is very unknown due to not being in the anime. This sucks, as s/he is the most awesome of them all, what with literally being the descendant from dragons! Herb and Herb’s two followers force Ranma and her friends on a journey to China to find an item that will unlock Ranma’s male side again after Herb uses a magical ladle that locks Ranma’s form into his transformed state. See?!
All of this is amazing! Why did they skip over Herb in the OVA’s and movies?!
Below are possibly the only two pictures of cosplay of this character, and they date back to 2003!
2003 was 13 years ago. Thanks Oshidori from the year 2003 for being awesome!
