Overview

Being a teenaged martial artist isn't easy, especially for Ranma Saotome, who went through a major transformation on a training mission with his father. After an accidental dunk into a legendary cursed springs in China, Ranma now changes into a girl every time he's splashed with cold water. His father, Genma, changes into a panda! That would be enough to complicate anyone's life, even without the arranged fiancee who doesn't like him (or says she doesn't) and the constant stream of rivals and suitors for both his male and female forms. What's a half-guy, half-girl to do?

Akane's sojourn in the remote region of Ryugenzawa leads to her reunion with Shinnosuke, the mysterious boy she remembers from childhood. Only Shinnosuke himself can't remember much of anything, and he's dying of a deadly wound he received in Akane's defense. The only thing keeping him alive is Ryugenzawa's magical water...and now, those natural resources are drying up. With the poor, doomed Shinnosuke on her conscience, will Akane decide to stay with him until the bitter end...?

Meet the Author

The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan's annual New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another—Maison Ikkoku ran from 1980 to 1987, Ranma 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and Inuyasha from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, and One-Pound Gospel. Takahashi won the Shogakukan Manga Award twice in her career, once for Urusei Yatsura in 1981 and the second time for Inuyasha in 2002. A majority of the Takahashi canon has been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film."
