Ranma ½

Ranma daisuki! Sayonara wa iwanaide!! - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: After the fiasco with Tofu, Ranma is packing to go to China; the floor is segmented differently in the various angles at the beginning of the scene with Nabiki opening the door. (00:08:10)

Kotsuban uranai! Ranma wa nihonichi no oyomesan - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Discussing Tofu's finances, Akane leans on Nabiki's bed warning her about messing with the poor clueless man. In the overhead shots Akane's torso and arms are drawn much higher than her position should be, as if she were standing by the bed or be closer to it, while in the other views she's on her knees and just leaning forward. (00:06:55)

Shanpû no hangeki! Hissatsu shiatsuken wa mimo kokomo ubau - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Saotome narrates the technique he saw Shampoo perform on Akane, he is holding the tea cup in his hands; hand position and polka dot pattern vary between the two shots. (00:19:20)

Shanpû no hangeki! Hissatsu shiatsuken wa mimo kokomo ubau - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Akane opens the door and looks into the bedroom. The futon Ranma sleeps in is blue with a white border, but when Shampoo in close-up is snuggling up to him, it's all blue. (00:03:00)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Shampoo and Akene glare at each other from opposite sides of the room, Ranma has the broken weapon embedded in his cranium, but the other one has disappeared. (00:12:05)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Shampoo breaks into the series, the parfait cups on the table change position a few times; Akane's glass is towards the middle of the table or closer to her. (00:02:50)

Kotsuban uranai! Ranma wa nihonichi no oyomesan - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Akane and Ranma watch Dr. Tofu as he begins to mess things up being all flustered by handling Kasumi's dish. Close to them by the entrance, a red book and a teal book are piled together in the overhead shot, but curiously enough, we see in 2 separate shots that follow first the red book only, then the teal book only, both in the same spot as earlier. (00:02:35)

Ranma o gekiai! Shintaisou no sukeban toujou - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: Kodachi is standing in front of the window spinning her ribbon and creating a storm of black rose petals. Cut to Akane, and Kodachi jumps away off-screen. When Akane stands in front of the window, the mess in the room is much greater (which could be understandable) but the books on her desk have also changed color. (00:14:50)

Ranma o gekiai! Shintaisou no sukeban toujou - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: In the wide shot opening the episode, the girl to the right of the 'mysterious' girl (turning out to be Kodachi) has a bandage on the right knee up to about half her thigh, but it's gone in the next shot. Notice also the girl in the middle not having any band-aid on her left cheek, while she does when Ranma walks in on them after getting ice cream. (00:01:50)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Ranma breaks Shampoo's weapon intervening to defend Akane, the portion of handle left attached to the iron ball keeps changing in length between shots. (00:10:00)

Shanpû no hangeki! Hissatsu shiatsuken wa mimo kokomo ubau - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Ranma holds P-Chan and slaps him back into consciousness, his thumb is always on the opposite side of the bandana, no matter which side that is. (00:09:05)

Ranma daisuki! Sayonara wa iwanaide!! - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Akane is greeted by her sisters as she gets home. The packet of crisps in Nabiki's hand loses the red logo and white trim in a couple of shots. (00:02:45)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Ryoga throws the empty bucket at Ranma, in the shot when she falls off the roof her hair is black like male Ranma's, instead of red. (00:18:00)

Sammo Premium member

Ranma daisuki! Sayonara wa iwanaide!! - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Dr. Tofu holds the book with the formula for #119 with two fingers; fingers, and whole hand, are positioned differently between shots. (00:07:15)

Ranma daisuki! Sayonara wa iwanaide!! - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Ranma uses shampoo #110 on Akane, the quantity of foam on her head is wildly inconsistent throughout the scene. (00:05:30)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Kasumi is pouring tea. The cups in front of her change position between shots. (00:21:45)

Sukeban no me ni namida? Rûru muyou no kakutou shintaisou kecchaku - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Kodachi does her "Attack of the 1,000 clubs" engaging Ranma on the third rope. Ranma then disperses the clubs with the volleyball attack, but somehow Kodachi, who has not moved, is standing on the opposite side of the ring instead of by the ropes. (00:07:00)

Kotsuban uranai! Ranma wa nihonichi no oyomesan - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: During the walk towards Dr. Tofu's house bringing Kasumi's hot meal, the shadow of the fence on the asphalt appears only in the last shot, when it's undisturbed by (and inconsistent with) the taxi as it moves in the same road. (00:02:25)

Kotsuban uranai! Ranma wa nihonichi no oyomesan - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Heading back to the doctor's house and practice, Tofu preceded by Nabiki is carrying a pile of gifts. The second package from below is wrapped with a blue checkered pattern, which turns into red a couple of shots later. (00:10:55)

Sukeban no me ni namida? Rûru muyou no kakutou shintaisou kecchaku - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: After Kodachi has used her bladed hoop, Ranma gets the clavettes from Akane. In the close-up she uses them like nunchakus; too bad though that the chain she has at her wrist is gone. (00:06:20)

Onna no koi wa snesouyo! Kakutou shintaisou de iza shoubu - S1-E12

Audio problem: When Ranma and Akane close the door behind them avoiding the gas trap, the English dub adds a lot of coughing, even when they have their mouth closed. (00:16:40)
