Ranma Fanfic of the Year was a series of posts by Taleswapper in which they detailed their picks for the best Ranma ½ fan fiction of the past year. The awards began in 1995[1] and ended in early 1998.[2]

DescriptionEdit

Suddenly inspired to express my thoughts on stories I have enjoyed reading, I put together the following list of my favorites and tried to describe why I like the stories so much.[1]

NotesEdit

  • Taleswapper also made quarterly posts for the best of the preceding three months.
  • Awards listed alphabetically by author rather than by placing.[1]
  • The "fanfic" year runs from October 1 through September 30.[3]
  • Based on works of fan fiction posted to RAAC.[3]
