Day 50/365

Genma Saotome

From the anime Ranma 1/2, Genma Saotome is Ranma's father and also has a cures upon him. But instead of turning into a girl like is Ranma does, he turns into a panda bear when he comes into contact with cold water. He is the head of the Saotome Dojo named "Anything Goes Martial Arts".

Why I like him: He is always training Ranma to be an awesome fighter. Taking him on trips and randomly attacking him to make sure he is always on guard. He always turns into a panda when he doesn't wish to speak to others and commonly communicates with cute little wooden signs when in panda form.

Why I hate him: Despite how hilarious his panda form is, always using it to hide from people was a cowardly way out of dealing with his problems. Mainly his wife. XD

Overall: Panda situation aside, Genma is an awesome father. Maybe even with the panda issue that makes him all the more awesome. This anime was one of my first I ever watched and I think it's time for a re-watch really soon.

Panda form!

    I love his Panda form with the wooden signs. Without him, the anime would be dull 🙂
