Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Ranma runs away from Shampoo's first assault. There's an establishing shot of the 'Pand' cafe, and you can see the big hole in the wall. The debris is shaped like rocks, thicker than the wall they supposedly were a part of. In the next shot, when Akane points her to the wrong direction, you can also see toppled furniture and a dude poking his head out of the wall, not matching the earlier view. (00:03:55)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Shampoo breaks a part of the outer wall of the Tendo house swinging at Akane. You can see the chui wrecked through 3 vertical rows and part of a fourth, completely destroying horizontal wooden slats. After the intermission we see Akene raging next to the wall, which is now broken in barely 3 sections and with a visible horizontal slat intact in one out of 3. (00:09:50 - 00:11:45)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: As Mr. Tendo is fuming, Shampoo pulls out a book. Seen from behind, she is holding it with the thumb of her left hand along the edge. In the reverse shot, the position of her hand is not consistent; her thumb should be visible or at least part of her hand should be closer, for the thumb to be in that position and at that height.

Shanpû no hangeki! Hissatsu shiatsuken wa mimo kokomo ubau - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Ranma chased by Shampoo keeps running in circles around the breakfast table. Akane is eating from a brown colored bowl, but when she gets up and screams she had enough, on the table there are only light purple bowls. We can get a glimpse of the brown one on the table a moment later once Shampoo bounces off Akane flicking away with her toes. (00:04:15)

Gekiretsu shoujo Shanpû toujou! Watashi inochi azukemasu - S1-E15

Other mistake: After beating up the dummy, Akane is thinking back about her 'relationship' with Ranma. During her thoughts, the first memory that pops to her mind is something that has not happened yet, Ranma moving in front of her and saying "She's MY fiancee", part of the story arc at the ice rink that will happen only later in the series (Episode 20 of the English dub, which unites both Ranma series in one, episode 8 of the Ranma Ranma ½; Nettô-hen series; "Kikiippatsu! Shiryō no Bonodori"). More recent home video editions have fixed the mistake, airing the ice rink episodes before the Shampoo ones - which is where they should have been in the first place; Shampoo's debut episode was preempted last minute in the original airing to help unsatisfying ratings with the appearance of one of the most popular manga characters.

Shanpû no hangeki! Hissatsu shiatsuken wa mimo kokomo ubau - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: After the scene with naked Ryoga in the gym warehouse, Ranma is walking home with Akane. He is walking on top of a wall that transitions from concrete to horizontal palisade, but as the shot changes, it is a full fence all along. Not just that; the billboard located in front of the junction has different notes posted on it, from 2 to 3. (00:16:00)
