Rumiko Takahashi's story of a high school aged girl named Akane who finds herself engaged to be married because of an arrangement by her father. Unfortunately her fiance, Ranma, turns out to be less of a man than expected and was raised by a giant panda. Written by

The character of Ranma and the initial inspiration for the entire series originally spawned from Ryuunosuke Fujinami, a secondary character in Rumiko Takahashi's previous work "Urusei Yatsura" (1981). Ryuunosuke is a girl raised by her maniacal, single father to be a boy, and became skilled in martial arts through his daily, brutal training. She constantly longs to express her pent-up feminine side, but obstacles (usually her father) keep getting in her way. See more »
[In the bath, after turning back into a boy]
Might as well go out as I am now...
[Akane comes in, thinking he's in girl form]
[looks at Akane, who has no clothing on]
[Akane and Ranma stare at each other, in the nude, for a few moments, then she finally closes the curtain, dresses herself, and leaves]
[Ranma looks at himself in embarrassment]
[Closes the door behind her, takes a deep breath, and finally screams]

If there is one good way to describe Ranma 1/2 (Nibun No Ichi), it would be absolutely HILARIOUS. The interaction between characters, and many of the characters' backgrounds are unbelievable-- There are so many odd characters in the series which you grow a liking for. It also mixes martial arts elements into, akin to Dragonball Z, except much more smoothly-animated. The combination of interesting fights with equally interesting characters makes this show one of the best, in my opinion.
