"Long running series tend to have issues generating interesting content at a steady pace. Usually these series either drag out a very long story arc or begin to use single story episodes to try and find something that fans will enjoy. Many of these series have a big enough fanbase that they can get away with this technique without too much of a problem as fans generally are more interested in the characters and their interactions at this point. With Ranma ½ Set 3 bringing episodes forty seven through sixty nine out in one collection, will the series continue going strong?"
