I'll grant the Out Of Character
point, but I think that's largely the focus of a lot of his work. Instead of being used as an excuse to write generic porn or romance, he reinvents certain characters for new stories. A sort of What If
, if you get my meaning. While I'll agree that a few of his stories are hit and miss, when he writes his concepts right he does it very well. And again, I'll point out the Halloween specials. At this point, they feel like mocking parodies of some of the worst stories out there, taking absurd character types and playing them pretty straight as far as Ranma's arrival at the dojo is concerned.
