Other Editions of This Title:
One day, teenaged martial artist Ranma Saotome went on a training mission with his father and ended up taking a dive into some cursed springs at a legendary training ground in China. Now, every time he’s splashed with cold water, he changes into a girl. His father, Genma, changes into a panda! What’s a half-guy, half-girl to do? Find out what fueled the worldwide manga boom in beloved creator Rumiko Takahashi’s (InuYasha, Urusei Yatsura, RIN-NE) smash hit of martial arts mayhem, presented remastered and unflipped for the first time.
Contains volumes 5 and 6!
Chinese Amazon warrior Shampoo hasn’t given up on Ranma yet—only instead of killing him, she now wants to marry him! There are just a few obstacles in the way of their future happiness, though, starting with a childhood phobia of Ranma’s and followed by Shampoo’s suitor, Mousse, martial arts master of hidden weapons. Can Ranma escape Shampoo’s soap opera? Or a better question might be, does he even want to?
