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 »

Curses, fights, romance, and laughs. What more do you need.
For me I find Ranma 1/2 to be the best series that I have ever seen. I am an anime fan. Slowly rising in the world of anime fandom. For I have been a fan since Sailor Moon first apeard in the UK.
But anyway on to the comments of this. I have only seen up to series 3 and the 2 movies but I find it to be amazing. What with curses plaguing people and getting them into trouble. But also helping them out. But also with martial arts and hilarious prodicaments to make this better. Plus for the cherry on top there is a little bit of romance in there to make people connect with it and enjoy it more. Now the characters are brilliently created from there personallities to what they look like and the voice actors used.
Well as you can see I love this series and I say if you like romance, fighting or funny anime then this is the one for you.
