With the Tendos, the Saotomes, Ryoga, Shampoo and Ukyo misinterpreting Tatewake Kuno's invitation to his two loves, Akane and "The Pig Tailed Girl", to try his new yacht, a whole new episode of chaos begins in the already unstable lives of the Saotome/Tendo clan. A mysterious shadow kidnaps first Akane's sister Kasumi, then continues on until all the girls disappear. All except everyone's favorite hydrotranssexual. As an ambush, Ranma's set out to trap one of the shadows, revealing them to be under the control of a powerful prince Toma. Toma is the young prince of a floating island to which only males are born due to a powerful spring which turns anything into a man. Of course, he's out to rescue the girls, but more importantly, can he get a hold of the water that may free him of the Jusenkyo curse? And even more importantly, can he keep his mouth shut before Akane does more damage to him then Prince Toma does?Written by
Viz Media's English title is a parody of the film Farewell My Concubine (1993). See more »
No one's gonna take her from me! Akane's mine! And she's engaged to me!
[Akane and Ranma fall out of the landmine cart]
Is that the spring?
Now you can be cured Ranma!
No way Akane!
I gotta blow it up!
Ranma no! Then you'll never be able to...
Hey! Didn't you just say that you liked me the way I am?

During the credits we see images of Ranma and company enjoying their week at Togenkyo Island and when the credits are over, the word "BYE" appears and everyone says "bye bye". See more »
Originally, during the final battle between Ranma and Prince Toma, Ranma was given a needle by Cologne (Shampoo's grandmother) because she told Ranma that real pain will eliminate the pain caused by Toma's illusions, this concept was abandoned but Ranma was seen holding the needle behind his back in the final cut of the film, also cut was Ranma jabbing his leg with the needle to avoid Toma's fire illusion.

Ahhhh, Ranma. For those of you not familiar with the Ranma situation, here's a quick explanation: It's the typical old boy meets girl, boy turns into girl, girl gets engaged to girl routine.
Anyway, Ranma is a fine martial arts comedy based around a boy, Ranma, who changes between male and female form because of a curse laid upon him while training in the mountains of China. This is the second Ranma movie (based on the TV series, which, in turn is based on the original manga).
The Ranma 1/2 series is top-notch hilarity from start to finish, every time. This movie, however brings a bad name to the name. Nihao My Concubine is full of gratuitous breast shots, lame non-humour and a severe lack of plot. The american dubbed version is (believe it or not) worse still, having ridiculous puns strewn about, thoroughly distracting and annoying to say the least, not to mention the acting standard. As for the actual animation, it's more or less regular Ranma standard - that is, high quality, but relatively simple artwork, that does the job well. If you must see this movie, make sure it's a fan subtitled edition, but better still, miss this movie altogether and pick up some of the original Manga ;)
