Yeah. Ranma has more of the "out of control, chaotic" magic while Harry Potter is ordered.

sometimes its good to let go and be a little out of control.

Personally, I think some of the other possible magics from Ranma are actually more interesting than Jusenkyo. Honestly, Jusenkyo works as a wonderful plot point for use, and has great possible comedic effect. But some of the other abilities that were sort-of magical that I vaguely remember (it has been a long time since I read much of the manga) had a more immediate 'interesting' factor than Jusenkyo. Except for its comedic value, Jusenkyo felt more like 'background magic.' It's there, but it's basically a plot point, of little utility until specific events come up, or you need to bring back a running gag. And, since it is so central to the story, it makes some of the other things that could really shine, just sort of sit there in the shadows.

That Reversal Jewel thing would be awesome in the Potterverse. The possibilities are endless with the mayhem you could create there. Shampoo and her love potions that never work (reminds me of Urd from Oh! My Goddess) has value too.

If I remember right, Urd was a potions genius, and her potions tended to work. Just, people forgot to ask about side effects, or someone would mess with her bottle lables.

Urd and Shampoo would have the same issues. Somebody would accidentally ingest something not meant for them, a label would all off, they would trip over something random . . . things like that.
