This is a page describing the romantic relationship between Mousse and Shampoo, including hints. There are hints in the manga that Shampoo's feelings for Mousse are not restricted to contempt, loathing and annoyance. In the largely independent anime, there are hints that Shampoo. Relationships Edit. Ranma Saotome Edit. Main article: Ranma-Shampoo Relationship. Because of her traditions and Ranma defeating her (accidentally) in his. Keep in mind that this is Ranma 1/2, and I'm fully aware that there has to be some suspension of disbelief in Ranma and Akane's "love/hate" relationship, but.
Poor Ranma was in a lose lose situation. It seems utterly ridicules how she could be terrified of him one minuet and then have some cute moment where she blushes toward him the next.
When you really like someone, the thought of them possibly raping you because of some hugs would never enter your mind. Then she gets mad at him for not wanting to eat it.
Well, if I were Ranma, I would do the same thing. It's not right for her to force her poisonous food on her fiance and family members. I know that Akane just wants to improve her cooking skills but she should do what every chef does before they serve their food; taste it herself first.
Ranma is also somewhat over-possessive of Akane himself.
In the OAV "An Akane to Remember", he didn't give her a chance to explain the situation with Shinnosuke and almost immediately tried to fight with him. After Akane stops Ranma from trying to beat up the poor guy, he just walks off thinking that she's fallen in love with him.
A mutually over-possessive relationship like this is surly lacking in trust of each other. Ranma is scene multiple times teasing Akane about her body, martial arts, and her other lacking skills, even though he knows she's over-sensitive about them. Akane does much of the same thing when, calling him a pervert and womanizer.
I am aware that, they eventually calm down a bit as the story goes on but even at the very end of volume 38, they're still bickering about their unsettled business and Akane is the first one who starts the argument. In the end It seemed like it was back to the old grind for Ranma and Akane.
Akane almost had to die for Ranma to even think the words "I love you. Despite all the heart-ships they just went through both of them are still ashamed to tell each other the truth about their feelings. I know that this is suppose to be the "recurring joke" that makes their relationship unique and funny, but after watching the same denial and bickering in the span of two years and 38 volumes, it stops being funny and gets to the point of ridiculously stupid.
Even for a comedy romance. So why do these two like each other? Neither of them show anything to signify a deep romantic connection or bond with each other. I think Ranma has a serous case of "First Love" syndrome. He was forced to live under the same roof with her and see her everyday, so he got to know Akane pretty quickly. The same can't be said for Ukyo or Shampoo, which gives Akane an automatic advantage over the other girls from day one.
It seems like the only reason these two are a canon couple is because Rumiko Takahashi deems it so, not because Ranma and Akane actually complement one another as a pairing.
Akane as a character in her own right, is actually a very nice girl.
For some reason, it seems that being around Ranma brings out the ugliest side of her and he usually gets the butt end of it. In the end, we don't hate Akane, just the way she acts and treats Ranma. Akane would probably benefit much more with someone like Ryoga or even Genji Heita from the animewho she hit it off real nicely with.
There is an arc in volume 33 called 'Two Shampoos' in which a statue comes to life as Shampoo and dates Mousse. Ranma wants to help Mousse even after all the grief he's given him, but Shampoo doesn't want to lend a hand to help save a fellow warrior and fellow tribesman-in-a-foreign-land! Not just because it's Amazon law but because that's the kind of man most woman want I'm talking about mental strength as well as physical What girl wouldn't want a guy who's stable.
In Shampoo's eyes, Mousse has done nothing but prove that he's the complete opposite and being a "Mater of hidden weapons" isn't a sign of strength. In the "Two Shampoos" arc, Mousse got incredibly strong because he had been carrying the heavy Shampoo-looking statue around for weeks.
Hell, even Ranma was afraid of him for a while until Shampoo intervened on his behalf.
However, it's shown many times that Mousse is more the lover type instead of the fighter, and I think he prefers it that way.
If he didn't, he would have gained the courage to learn a some techniques and defeat Shampoo once and for all.
For formal occasions she favors sleeveless cheongsam. Her cat form is light colored with dark ears and paws, a characteristic fringe, and similar strands that frame its face. In the anime, it has light pink fur with darker pink paws and ears. Personality Shampoo shows elements of the tsundere character, given her initially hostile temperament towards Ranma Saotome before slowly becoming more attracted to him until she finally stops her plans for revenge in favor of ensuring her marriage to Ranma.

Nudity is also not a problem for her, as she rather enjoys being naked and has attempted to seduce Ranma many times, even in dangerous places like under a giant bell. Early in the series, Kasumi Tendo had a talk with her about modesty.
Although she did cease her faint-inducing habit of popping out of the tub naked anytime Ranma tried to take a bath, the conversation has apparently had little effect on her behavior other than that. Relationships Ranma Saotome Main article: Ranma-Shampoo Relationship Because of her traditions and Ranma defeating her accidently in his male form, it is law that she marry him, and she tries everything possible to accomplish that. Frequently, she glomps Ranma on sight and asks for a date, much to his chagrin.
She is not above using trickery and magic to get Ranma to fall in love with her. Because of this, Ranma generally sees her as a nuisance, but tolerates her and seems to have a good degree of friendship with her, going to the Cat Cafe for free bowls of ramen and helping Mousse to rescue her when she's held captive by Maomolin. Unlike Ukyo, who he at least apparently considers as a regular, non-romantic old friend, Ranma has stated outright that he views Shampoo as a pest, and treated her as an infuriating nuisance on several occasions.

Regardless, his attitude towards both of them seems conflicted between consideration for their feelings. He was moved by Shampoo's tears when she believed that he rejected her during the onsen race, and had a similar problem with Ukyo during the 'Secret Sauce' arc.
His pride took it as a direct challenge to win back Shampoo's affections during the 'Reversal Jewel' storyline, where he also forces a confession out of Ukyo to feel desirable again. His only attempt to directly get rid of Shampoo beyond encouraging Mousse in his efforts happened during her first appearance.
Like most cute girls in the series, she can usually manipulate him by feigning tears.
