Inspirations for Ranma ½ manga 5
I recently noticed that the original Japanese title of volume 19 part 3 and VIZ volume 17 part 3 is a reference to the novel The Catcher In the Rye by J. D. Salinger. VIZ called it Catcher in the Rind whereas the Japanese version is translated Catcher in the Watermelon Patch.
I have not read that novel or if I did I don't recall doing so. I have a list of books I'd like to eventually read and that book is on it though.
