Storyline

When Prince Kirin of the 7 Lucky Gods shows up at the Tendo dojo looking for his bride-to-be, guess who's accidentally holding the scroll that signifies his future mate? Why, Akane, of course, and the rest of the Ranma crew is forced to take a boat to China in order to save her from the horrors of marriage and a diet of pickled vegetables.

absolutely hilarious!
9 April 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

i recently saw this and it was so funny! the story was your typical save akane routine, but in the beginning, it shows all of the characters in the past chase after ranma and haposai. a great opening. the animation is very traditional, the characters are funny as hell, especially panda, and ranma soups up his incredible fighting moves. see this one for hilarious laughs and good times.
