|It's not easy being a teenage martial artist named Ranma Saotome, but it's even worse when your martial artist father Genma takes you from home at an early age to go on a decade-long training mission. He doesn't speak a word of Chinese, and yet he insists on bringing you to the cursed training ground known as JUSEKYO, where falling into one of many springs instantly turns you into whoever - or whatever - drowned there last. And then, the two of you have this accident?
It seems that Ranma's life only gets more and more complicated as time goes by. Not only is he engaged to Akane Tendo, tomboy heir to the Tendo Anything-Goes School of Martial Arts, but he's also saddled with a bevy of beautiful, far too persistent, girls who want Ranma all to themselves! You'd think he could solve his own problem by just picking the one girl he wants to be his fianc‚Ń but nothing is ever that simple?
Hannah's comments: The series is more fun, in general to watch more than the films. I think Ranma suits best for a series, and not as films. If you have seen "Masion Ikkuko" and "Lum" you definitely recognize the animation and the "behavoiur" of the woman who created those , from the beginning, manga. I didn't relize Ranma can be both a girl and a boy, but after some hints from a friend, he told me he/she will become vice versa depending if he/she has got cold/warm water on him/her. Ranma and "Maison Ikkoku" and "Lum" aren't my favorite animes,it can be a little too much of misunderstandings, but once in a while funny.
