Whoa, virulent anti-Shampoo sentiments! Obviously not everyone likes
the lavender haired lovely. True, she's an underhanded, cruel, manipulative
minx who's always trying to break Ranma and Akane up, and treats the
love struck Mousse like dirt, but hey, nobody's perfect!

(Actually, I feel a bit sorry for Shampoo. Look at it from her point of view:
She's a better fighter than Akane, more cunning (although definately not
smarter), has more feminine wiles ("Ranma no like Shampoo? BOO-
HOO-HOO!" until the idiot puts his foot in his mouth and agrees to go on
yet another date with her), is MUCH more openly affectionate and sexy,
a great cook, has recourse to all sorts of potions and magics... in every
way by Amazon standards she's more desirable than that violent tomboy,
and yet she STILL can't get Ranma away from Akane! Her little purple
head must be completely baffled by this. No wonder she's so mean to
poor Mousse; HE falls in love with her, no problem, but can she get
anywhere with Ranma? NOOO!!! Talk about frustrating!)

Although I DO think Shampoo and Mousse would be a good couple, if
she was as devoted to him as he is to her. Unfortunately since she can't
value him on his own merits the only way those two are ever going to get
together - excepting the possibility of a errant love potion - is if he follows
Amazon law and defeats her in combat, earning the right to be her
husband. I think he could do it if he really went at her; I mean, this is
Mousse we're talking about, he could probably pull a Sherman tank out
of those hidden weapon pockets of his and smash her head in with it if he
really wanted to. The trouble is he loves her too much to risk hurting her,
so he pulls his punches... and loses. If there were just some way to turn
Mousse's love to hate for one match, say by using the brooch from
"Desperately Seeking Shampoo", wedding bells would be imminent! As
soon as Shampoo got out of her hospital bed, that is.

the problem is -- shampoo's feelings won't be changed just because she
has been defeated. mousse pulverizes shampoo. shampoo (by law) must
marry mousee (how this negates her prior obligation to marry ranma-kun
i don't know, but it seems to be something of a basic assumption).
HOWEVER: shampoo will probably still despise mousse.

wedding bells? don't know about that one.

Nah... Shampoo doesn't have the brains to work out that she won't be in
love with the one who beats her to a pulp. That's the only reason why she
loves Ranma... Because of the laws. And because she wants to get Akane
back by stealing Ranma from her. If Shampoo got Ranma, she'll end up treating
him like Mousse, more than likely, because she is just a bimbo. All she knows
is : Kill the one who loves you, Love the one who beats you up.

After all this time, I think Shampoo has come to really love Ranma. But
it IS because of the laws. Since Ranma was the FIRST to beat her in a
fight, she accepts this and truly loves him; but only as she understands
love, which is in a very limited manner. Ultimately it IS shallow, but
not to her present perpective.

Actually, we must recall that in the episode you mention, Ranma defeats
Shampoo in combat without hurting her. Mousse could probably do the same
thing with little effort (those weighted rope things of his would do the job
nicely). I think the boy wants her to fall in love with him of her own free
will, instead of invoking that very cruel Amazon law.

Which is why I keep hoping Shampoo DOES wind up with Mousse, somehow,
someday. Not because she deserves him - how many of us would deserve
that kind of total love, after all? - but because I think Mousse is the
only one who could teach her how much more there is to love than she
currently understands.
Although he probably WOULD have to beat her brains in, first, just to
get her attention.

Shampoo bashing....SHAMPOO BASHING!!!!!
HEE HEE HEE HEE HEE!
Now here's my two sense on that slut of sluts (Takahasi -sama should've made
da bitch blonde....)
Shampoo is a spoled, manipulatilve, deviante little bimbo... she wants
what SHE wants, not what could be good for her... Hands down she is the
worst anime character! Her only point with male fans is her inherent
stupidity and her size c chest. However, I don't think Mousse should beat
her up...chain her and enslave her, yes...till she begs for forgiveness
"and the love of Shampoo's rightful master, yes?". Sounds SM, but I think
as much of a dominatrix she is, it's about time SHE got on her knees and
begged. Mousee is too kind, too beautiful, and too gentle to be treated
such. Men with problems of what defines masculinity say "he's a wimp",
but if I was written into Ranma 1/2, I would be more than proud to
walk down the aisle with him. I think it's not just an issue of "who should
Shampoo get?" but, "Is Shampoo really what men percieve as female?"
Takahasi is female, but so many men love the character of Shampoo...it just
makes me wonder if that is what men want...someone to subdue and conquer...
someone to "win" and not "lose" like Mousse. Takahasi wrote Ranma 1/2 as
seemingly female-predominate, but I think she made Shampoo as "male fodder".
I don't think Shampoo serves any purpose in the story...like Kodachi and
Ukkyo, they are just filler..."Anime cheesecake" I call it. Maybe Takahashi
thaought that's what men wanted, and wrote accordingly...
Oh well...
Ja ne,

Yeah! I couldn't have said it better, myself! (Well, maybe I could have, if
I decided to take the time to write it all out...) Shampoo should be forced
to do whatever Mousse wants! Mousse should be the happy one, and Shampoo
should suffer! Then we'd all be happy!

Ukyou, Shampoo and Kodachi are all just there to help get a story, really.
Same with Kunou, Mousse and even Ryouga... But I guess it's true that the
only reason why guys like Shampoo is because she's a brainless bimbo who
dyes her hair purple and she wears bimboish clothing. Oh, well... What can
you expect besides shallowness from Shampoo? At least Kodachi is only insane
and Ukyou is almost normal...

mousse is, honestly, a bit of an idiot. well, maybe that's a bit
overstated. he's blind. i don't recall him being kind ever, i do agree
he's faintly good looking, and as far as gentle goes, that goes out the
window. i don't think i've ever seen a single instance where any
violence he was involved in was started by anyone OTHER than himself.

i fail to see how the points follow. what does takahashi's gender have

what does subduing and conquering have to do with shampoo? once she

conquer and subdue there, unless you drag in the old 'amazon woman law'
thing...

i find it hard to believe takahashi-sensei wrote anything just to satiate
the desires of men. then too, most of the nettouhen series doesn't
appear in the manga at all -- and as such is not quite takahashi's work.

this i'd definitely have to object to. she's far from brainless -- she's
probably the most wily one in the cast. then too, her clothing is
chinese. if you care to generalize ...

But Shampoo's a bimbo. The only thing on her mind is getting Ranma to marry
her, then getting him into bed with her. (Not necessarily in that order)
Hmmm... not a C cup, then? What size is it? You seem to have an excessive
interest in Shampoo's bra size there, so you may as well share her correct
size with the world!

Well, Shampoo always bashing Mousse and stuff. All she needs is to be
dressed in that leather gear, you know...

Yeah, all us people who can see how much of a bimbo Shampoo is... The people
who can see past her bust size and her way-too-short dresses...

Well, if we don't drag in the old 'Amazon woman law' thing, then you won't
be getting anywhere near Shampoo, ne? And she won't really stand by you...
Maybe lie and cheat around you so she can get you where she wants you, not
giving a damn about what you want...

No, she's the most brainless one... not having a brain doesn't mean you can't
ruin everyone else's lives by being sneaky and manipulative. She just does
it out of instinct, or out of her great grandmother telling her what to do.
I don't think I've ever seen Shampoo concieve a plan by herself... She has
to follow someone or something else... And her clothing is Chinese style, but
compare it to the other Chinese dresses and outfits you see the other Ranma
girls wear, and she's DEFINATELY got bimboish clothes on!

>quite a bit. she can cook, for one thing. ^_^

Heh... Okay, shallowness and a good meal which may or may not be drugged or
laced with some potion or other, brought over from China. But then, Ukyou
can cook and she's not shallow. And you wouldn't expect her to have wierd
'extras' in her meals...

Mousse is also a spoiled, manipulative, and deviant.. I hesitate on the
bimbo part... Ukyou is manipulative; Ryouga is spoiled and deviant, etc..

Hands down she is the

>worst anime character! Her only point with male fans is her inherent
>stupidity and her size c chest.

She's cute, and size c doesn't necessarily corelate 100% w/ cute IMO
(or at least for me it doesn't). She can cook.. she has business experience
(and is smart enough not to buy things from Nabiki).. she has some magical
ability/knowledge, and she can take care of herself... I'd say that was a
pretty good start.

However, I don't think Mousse should beat

>begged.

I think I missed where she is a dominatrix... she has not (to my knowledge)
tied anyone up that she claims to love... she has not gone around randomly
hurting or killing people (Akane yes, random people no). She has made no
attempts on anyone's life to my knowledge.

[Mousse snipped and dealt w/ elsewhere]

>Takahasi is female, but so many men love the character of Shampoo...it just

>makes me wonder if that is what men want...someone to subdue and conquer...

>someone to "win" and not "lose" like Mousse.

The only people who have a chance to subdue and conquer her are Ranma and
Ryouga (and some the people who occasionally beat both of the above). I
know I wouldn't want to fight her, and neither do any of the normal characters
in the Ranmaverse. The only people who want to fight her are Akane and
Ukyou (once).

Granted that Shampoo does tease Akane and Mousse w/ her superiority over
them, but so.. lots of people can be childish.

Takahasi wrote Ranma 1/2 as
>seemingly female-predominate, but I think she made Shampoo as "male fodder".

dunno...

>I don't think Shampoo serves any purpose in the story...like Kodachi and

>Ukkyo, they are just filler..."Anime cheesecake" I call it. Maybe Takahashi
>thaought that's what men wanted, and wrote accordingly...

You do realize that Ranma has lots of beefcake as well (so to speak).. lots
of male nude scenes as well as female nude scenes.. just because the American
comic and anime audiences are primarily male-dominated and the talk centers
around what they like is no real reason to assume things about Shampoo
Kodachi or Ukyou. Perhaps you should try to read some shoujou manga and
see what the females are like there..

Mousse is a deviant bastard w/ no sense of honor. He will do anything
devious or underhanded to get his way. He doesn't care about Shampoo's
feelings, nor does he care how many other (not Shampoo) people he hurts
to get his way.

Mousse is not a wimp, he is a good martial artist, just not in Ranma's
class. He fails despite an almost overwhelming advantage in the number
of dirty tricks he can and does pull.

The only thing that Mousse will not do is attack Shampoo. Mousse will
take Shampoo however he can (short of actually beating her, which he may
not be able to do, personal desires/beliefs aside). I have seen no
evidence that either Shampoo or any other "main" character in Ranma is
into S&M or B&D.

But about Shampoo. I personally find it difficult to take anyone who
sounds like baby Miss Piggy seriously (and I'm talking about her original
voice, too). She's also just too damn cutesy for my tastes. Hey, I'm an

Shampoo's a very in-depth character like almost all in the series...
heck, if she wasn't, there wouldn't be this sort of debate, n' est
pa?

I personally don't find her overly attractivly drawn, but find
myself enjoying the character because:

1) She does truly love Ranma and her great-grandmother, and does
her best to take care of both of them. One might argue that
she is "manipulative" and "vindicitive", but look at her position:
she is madly in love with a man whom she has to share with no
less than three other women. Her dedication to him proves
her love. Also, in "Despratly Seeking", we saw how much she
hated him with the jewel on, and that jewel directly reverses
true feelings.

2) She reminds me a lot of "Lum" from the Urusei Yatsura
series. Both are involved with men who pretend to have no
interest in them. Both are in cultures which are very different
from their own and are hard to adapt to.

3) Except when she's bashing people away from Ranma, she tends
to be a very nice and polite person.

Just my opinion
-Dave

I have to agree, Ukyou's been more a friend to Ranma than any other girl
in Ranma 1/2 (Akane cares about Ranma more than anyone, but she's not
exactly his friend :) ...Ukyou's pretty much the good girl while Shampoo
and Kodachi are the BAD.

Ukyou doesn't play the dirty tricks like the other two, and she seems to
care about Ranma also instead of mostly caring about herself like the
other two. In the next OAV there's an episode from Ranma Super about
the Heartbreak Cave, (manga #20something??) in which Ukyou did try to
"break up" Akane and Ranma by sending them to a cursed cave where all
couples are destined to break up. I don't think she was the sole author
of the idea, and it's not really a dirty trick compared to what Kodachi
and Shampoo cook up regularly so it's alright in my book <g> Besides,
it's pointless to "break up" Akane and Ranma because there's nothing
there to break up (it gets really funny near the end, I watched the
subbed version at No-Name Anime a plug 4 dem :)

Anyways, I agree with you... Ukyou is a nice girl and I like her.

Mousse is a wuss.
The guy just has no convictions.
He says that he loves Shampoo, he says that he wants to marry her.
But does he actually do what it takes. No.
I believe he is actually capable of defeating Shampoo, and I think so does she. And it would get really tiring hearing how someone loves
you day in and day out, and how they want to spend the rest of their
life with you, but do not have the guts to prove it. That person would
loose my respect pretty quickly, I'm suprised that Shampoo still allows
him to stick around.

The way he sticks around and fawns over Shampoo, you'd think he was
under the effect of a love potion or something.

calling Ukyou-sama "cheesecake" is just a tad too much, don't you think?
As I'm the (self-proclaimed) #1 Ukyou fan on the planet, my opinion could
be slightly biased, but let's look at the facts(this assumes that what
you watched was the Viz dubs): Ukyou is the most intelligent, mature, and
self-sufficient of Ranma's fiancees. She owns and operates her own
business, Ucchan's, with a great deal of competence. Unlike Shampoo, she
does not go out of the way to show off her body. Before you even say it,
Movie#2 doesn't count. Rumiko Takahashi did not do _anything_ remotely
like it in the manga, so that was the writer/animator's fault. In fact,
Ukyou generally wears either her okonomiyaki chef's outfit(like in
Movie#1), or comfortable, somewhat boyish clothes(like in Desperately
seeking Shampoo). Intelligence? Ignoring the fact that she plays Ryouga
like a ten-cent flute in Movie#2, Ukyou(at least in her earlier
anime/manga appearences) uses more intelligent, well-thought-out plans to
try and win Ranma. For example, instead of trying to kill Akane(like
Shampoo and Kodachi), she instead sets up Akane and Ryouga on a date,
which had a better chance of succeeding anyway. You can complain that
she's slavishly devoted to Ranma, but...there wouldn't really be a
conflict if she wasn't that much in love with him, so the point is moot.
It is also worthwhile to note that of all of Ranma's fiancee's, Ukyou is
the only one who can count herself his friend, as well. She isn't always
chasing him, either. For instance, in the Gambler King episodes/issues,
Ukyou tries to help Ranma learn to play cards. Shampoo or Kodachi would
undoubtedly extort something(like a date) out of Ranma, but Ukyou simply
did it because he needed the help...not that she minded spending the time
with him. BTW, somebody said in an earlier thread that Ukyou, later in
the manga, becomes the same sort of conniving Ranma-chaser as Shampoo and
Kodachi. Since I don't read tankoubans(sic?), I can't prove or disprove
that. If it's true, that will be a pity, because it would detract
greatly from the intrestingness of her character. Whatever happens
later, Ukyou should _not_ be lumped with Shampoo and Kodachi as simply
another piece of Ranma-chasing eye candy, because she's not. I suggest
reading both the current Ranma 1/2 part 5 issues and the upcoming TV
videos with Ukyou for proof of that.

And a pet peeve of mine is where this is used as an excuse for
the actions of characters ("After all, you one _really_ gets hurt.").
Well, you know that, and _I_ know that, but _Ryouga_ doesn't know
that. When the characters become aware that they are characters in an
anime movie, is when the show gets too silly for my taste and I go
elsewhere.

They may have grown up together, but Mousse could _not_ be from
her village. It's an _Amazon_ village, remember. By definition that
makes _any_ male an outsider. The law, as quoted in the anime, is
that if an outsider beats an Amazon, then, if that outsider is a
woman, the Amazon must track her down and kill her, if it's a man, she
must marry him. It does not mean that there are non-outsider men. In
fact, there can't be. If there were, they wouldn't be Amazons.
That's what the word means.

Ah, but what you failed to take into account was the Church of Ryouga-kamisama,

brainless bimbo, so is honourable enough to let her beat him, instead, ne?

Well, yes (actually, nobody in the comic sections of the Rumikoverse
ever gets seriously hurt, I've noticed; drop a mountain on them, and it
just causes flesh wounds. It's not like over in those places where
people eat mermaid flesh, and develop REAL problems!)

But it has belatedly dawned on me: The law says an OUTSIDER male who
beats an Amazon in combat becomes her husband, whether he likes it or
not. But Mousse ISN'T an outsider, he and Shampoo grew up together, he's
from her village! Which means beating her WON'T give him her hand or any
other body part in marriage (unless there's a matching law for such
situations somewhere else in the rulebook); he HAS to woo her and win her
with love alone, he has no other option! Poor kid.

Whether she deserves him, or he deserves her: That's a different
matter altogether.

Actually, it doesn't. "Amazon" means "female warrior." It does NOT mean
"women only." There ARE men in the Amazon village (in Graphic Novel #4,
we see Shampoo's unnamed father, for example); they just aren't considered
warrior material.

What Shampoo deserves is Ataru Moroboshi. What Mousse deserves is

But the forces of the two churches are suddenly blocked by one man in
their path. A man with black flowing hair and a white robe.

"NOOOOOOO!" he cries. "You shall never harm my Shampoo!"

"But we do this for you, Mousse!" the followers cry.

"Never!" cries out Mousse. "No matter what you do to me, I shall NEVER
give up my love for Shampoo! If you want to kill her, you must kill ME!"

The followers hesitate, then realize that no matter what they do, they can
NEVER win Mousse's heart, as Shampoo could. With a collective cry of despair,
they commit hara-kiri and die where they are.

And everyone else lives happily ever after ... more or less.

Actually, the word "Amazon" most emphatically _does_ mean a
group that excludes men. There have been plenty of women warriors
throughout history (well, maybe not "plenty" depending on how you
define the word), but actual Amazons appear to only be found in myth.
The word is not just a generic term for "woman warrior." Call any
woman soldier an "amazon" in the army _I_ served alongside (I was Air
Force) and prepare to give your dentist lots of reconstruction work.

The term comes from Greek mythology and not only included the
exclusion of men from the group, but active _war_ on men for the crime
of being of the male persuasion. The term includes more than just
"female warrior" but carries those other conotations as well. In such
a group, even men living in close proximity would be "outsiders."

As for Shampoo's unnamed father, he is probably an outsider too.
Shampoo's mother probably aquired him as a husband for the same reason
Shampoo is trying to acquire Ranma as husband--he beat her in combat.

Well, now, I personally think Ataru gets more grief and more
abuse than he deserves. Sure, he's a lech, but he's also a teenage
boy. The two terms ("lech" and "teenage boy") are practically
interchangable. He's just a little more open about it than most. He
loses points in tact, but makes them up in frankness. (Now, if you
want to talk about that physically abusive SO of his. . . .)

"Throw your grenades!" the followers cry, and nine nuclear grenades
fly in an arc towards Shampoo.

But Shampoo, forewarned and forearmed by her great-grandmother, has
prepared for this attack, using the "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire"
combined with the "Bakusai Tenketsu" to tag each grenade as they come
in, causing them to disintegrate without exploding their deadly payload.

"Uh-oh," the followers mutter.

Bonbori materialize in Shampoo's hands, and she sets about her attackers,
rendering them unconscious and broken in 30 seconds. She now spots her
enemy--Kun-chan--attacking Mousse.

But Mousse is the master of hidden weapons, and Kun-chan finds herself
tangled up in chains and ropes. "How DARE you attack my Shampoo!" he
roars out.

"Shampoo stop this nonsense once and for all!" She pulls out a bottle
of Formula 119 and uses it to wash all memory of Mousse from the dazed
Kun-chan, rendered helpless by Mousse's bonds. Certain pressure
points on Kun-chan's head are stimulated, replacing the object of her
affections with ... someone else ...

*****

"Wow, that's some story," says Ranma, later on in the Cat Cafe.

"Yeah. I didn't realize you cared for Mousse all that much," adds
Akane, as Shampoo puts a ramen bowl in front of her.

"Shampoo? Is that ... is that true?" asks Mousse, pushing his glasses
onto his eyes and looking at Shampoo intently.

"But--Shampoo no care for Mousse," stammers Shampoo. "Mousse is friend
and fun to play with, but that all. Shampoo save Mousse because Mousse no
deserve violent fate from Kun-chan. We just friends and friends help each
other. That all. Okay, Mousse?"

The others exchange knowing glances at each other.

"Be that as it may," asks Nabiki, slurping in a noodle, "what exactly
did you do to Kun-chan?"

"Oh," replies Shampoo, "I replace her fantasy lover with someone else.
Someone who need being chased once in a while--"

The party suddenly hears cries of "Help! HAAAAAAAALP!" They look out the
front window, to see--

The little form of Hikaru Gosunkugi, face filled with terror, being chased by
several females led by Kun-chan, a look of madness in her eyes.

"Voodoo-dollboy now have new friends to play with," Shampoo smiles.

"Shampoo," giggles Akane, "that's cruel."

"Shampoo may not be smart as Ranma," she replies, "but no one can say
Shampoo no have sense of irony."

And once again, everyone lived happily ever after--more or less ...

My word, poor Shampoo is getting rather thoroughly bashed, here.
In her partial defense, I'd like to make a point. Yes, I know she is
cruel, underhanded, doesn't deserve Mousse, etc. But! WHY is she this
way? I think we can all agree she isn't very bright (cunning, yes;
bright, no way). In her actions toward Ranma, Mousse, Akane, etc, she's
doing what she's been TOLD is right and in accord with the rules of her
Amazon civilization. And who, pray tell, do you think has been filling
her empty little purple head with these thoughts? Who is the person
Shampoo looks to for guidence in any situation requiring brain cells?
Uh-huh, the villain here isn't Shampoo, it's Colonge! Get rid of THAT
old ghoul, and while I doubt Shampoo will reform overnight, she MIGHT
eventually stop being such a villain, beating Mousse, chasing Ranma...
Or maybe not.

Well, you don't see her being unable to recognize the fact that others have a
right to like characters other than your favorite. You don't see her
participating in childish character bashing threads do you?

Plus, being direct doesn't make one a bimbo or thoughtless. Get a clue.
Don't bash.

Ataru has a Shampoo, her name's Lum. He'd be trading in electric shocks for
physical damage. I do agree that Ataru would be better for her than Ranma
(Ataru at least loves his fiance somewhere deep inside).

Mousse deserves better than Kuruma. That would be one night stand which is all
she's interested in. Anyway, Shampoo actually has acknowledged his existance
and love for her, unfortunately, he always then started talking to a rock
thinking it's her!
Plus, whether or not he defeats anyone, Ranma will still have been the one to
defeat her first.

Well, I hate to break this to you... But Shampoo isn't real! She's a manga
character who isn't online on any computer (and probably wouldn't know what
to do with one if she got one). But I do see her bashing other characters
who don't deserve it, and forcing herself on others who don't want a thing
to do with her! And I never said that people can't like other characters...
I just said that I don't like Shampoo, so beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeda!

>Plus, being direct doesn't make one a bimbo or thoughtless. Get a clue.
>Don't bash.

Ah, but not having a brain used for thought makes one a bimbo. *hands you

If you're going to get technical, the word "Amazon" means "breastless"
in ancient Greek, which Shampoo most definitely is *not*. ^_^
[Honto ni! The Greeks wrote that the Amazons cut off their breasts
because it interfered with using bows and other weapons. Sounds painful.]

"Amazon" in the context of Ranma 1/2 is merely a closest alternative to
translating "Joketsuzoku" as a literal meaning of, oh, "Female Superior
Clan." If you think that the word "Amazon" has extra connotations and
meanings, they weren't intended by Rumiko Takahashi. To my knowledge,
the Joketsuzoku do not and have not ever existed in China or in Chinese
legends.

Okay. Let's just launch a killer attack on the whole tribe! Kill off

Maybe they do deserve it. Maybe they do want it.
In any case, it sure is fun which is the point of Ranma.

No you didn't. You were name calling. Didn't you grow out of that in high
school? I was making the point that character bashing is childish. It is.
If you want to say something, say it. If you want to make a point, do it.
Now don't you have something better to do? Or, will you keep being a bimbo?
Have a nice life.

A casual observation, in both the manga and the anime, of the village's

You think _Shampoo_ can beat Ryouga?!? What planet have you been on, and
what Ranma have you been watching? Ranma himself knows all of this
stuff, and he has difficulty beating Ryouga! Shampoo wouldn't have a
prayer! In a fight, Ryouga would knock Shampoo out long before she got
near him with the water. Just to set the record straight, I think it's
fairly obvious that Mousse could thrash Shampoo, he just doesn't want to
hurt her. I would, however, put Shampoo over Kodachi, Akane, Kunou, or
Genma...she'd lose to Ukyou in a fair(no Cologne around) fight, though.
The two are about equal in martial arts skill, but Ukyou is a _lot_ more
intelligent, and that would make the difference...

Being a bimbo doesn't necessarily mean brainlessness, it implies one
has a severe lack of basic perceptiveness more than anything else.
This cluelessness, when uncompensated for by any above average
knowledge (outside cosmetics), is what makes someone a "bimbo".
