Ranma 1/2 is a Japanese series about a young man named Ranma Saotome, of the Anything-Goes School of Martial Arts. His father, Genma Saotome, takes Ranma on a training mission to China. There, Ranma and his father fall into the Cursed Springs of Jusenkyo. Each spring has an individual curse. When splashed with cold water, Genma becomes a rather large panda, Ranma however, turns into a red-haired girl. When splashed with hot water, they return to their original form. To complicate matters, Genma has promised his old friend, Soun Tendo, to marry his son Ranma off to one of Tendo's three daughters. Kasumi, age 19, Nabiki, age 17, and Akane, age 16. When Ranma and Genma arrive in cursed form, nobody knows WHAT to think. To make things worse, Akane, a tom-boyish young girl, gets defeated in practice by Girl-type Ranma, then stumbles onto Ranma's secret when she encounters male-type Ranma in the shower, both of them naked.....
Ranma is an older anime and is in my opinion one of the funniest Animes I've yet seen. The plot has a funny storyline and doesn't jump around like some animes I've seen. It is easy to follow and makes you want to see more! there are about 180 episodes in the series... I've only seen the first 40 or so but I'm eager to see more!!!!!
