This manga was extremely funny. I kept reading it over and over again and each time I would laugh hysterically. Even our foreign extchange student was laughing. Its a must read for anybody who enjoys comedy.

it has raw and unuasual humor, but isn't that what manga's for? it's been almost 9 years since i read this series, A LONG TIME, and i remembered how me and my friends just absolutely loved the series! i can't remember much of what there was inside but the best parts that i remember are the ones that made me laugh the whole time i was reading. so if you are a manga fan then THIS IS A DEFINATE READ!

I've been a HUGE fan of Rumiko Takahashi for years. Growing up, she was one of my biggest influences on my artwork. So since I've recently gained employment again, I decided to go ahead to my local B&N and buy this book, since I've always wanted to read it... When I got it home and read it, Parts 8 & 9 were replaced by repeats for Parts 6 & 7!!! I was disappointed, to say the least, and wondering if there's more than just my copy floating around like this... It is a FANTASTIC read, though - comdey, action, romance. Takahashi-san has a sense of humor that is out of this world, and by the time you reach the end of the book, you're totally wanting more. Just flip through the pages before you purchase...

This is one of the funniest series that was ever written! However, one does get tired of nudity jokes and this series is chock full of them. Full of misunderstandings, gender-bending, martial arts fun, this is one series that will make nearly everyone laugh

I think that this book is kickin'! I have read all the way through other manga and never been this in-tune! What is the author thinking about when she writes this stuff? I am a small time writer and I think this book higher than anything else I have wrote or read!!! i love this book and I want to read all of them like it!!!

Personally, I think Rumiko Takahashi is one of the best manga writers ever! Ranma 1/2 is one of my favorites. I crack up at just about every page!

Rumiko Takahashi did it again! This is one of my favorite mangas from her. Everything in the book was excellent, even the humor (more sexual humor than just humor) in the story made me laugh out loud for two minutes straight!

Takahashi is probably one of the best anime writers in the world. Ranma is up to her usual standard of hilarious perfection. Ranma, a teenaged boy, turns into a girl when he's splashed with cold water (and a boy when doused with hot). You can probably see some of the immediate complications, but he's also been arranged a marrage by his father, Genma (who turns into a giant panda when splashed with cold water). Then the school's biggest bufoon develops a deep crush for Ranma's girl half... Takahashi is easily a master of this sort of art. If you've never read any of her work, do so now.

I thought this book was exciting and hilarious. You feel so bad for Akane to end up with a fiance like Ranma. Rumiko Takahashi Does a wonderful job displying her characters personalities in the first volume of the series.

This is the funniest book I have EVER read! I have reread all of them countless times, never growing tired of the hilarious antics of the amusing and unique characters and the 'transformations' their lives endure! With true-to-life humor and non-stop martial arts action and suspense, this series is a must-read for anyone, especially those who relish in Japanese manga.

Ranma 1/2 is hillariouse! It will make you laugh out loud and question the sanity of the charaters and the person who created them.Ranma 1/2 is one of the best series I have ever read.This one has action, comedy, and a twinge of romance added to the mix to create one awsome and unpridictible story. The plot has twists and turns that spring out within the pages of the next 25 ranma 1/2 books in the series.

This manga shows that Rumiko Takashi has it all. She adds in humor, action, and exaggerated eyes just enough to impress you beyond comprehension. This book is incredible!!

First off all, this was the first Anime/Manga book I've ever read. I was noticing them latly, and reading about them, and series, so I picked this one up, and read it straight through. The storyline pretty good, not to much action though. A'couple times it had me chuckle outloud. All in all though, it seemed like it had ALOT of filler, like they were just filling pages with useless information. Then again, like I said earlier this is the first Anime/Manga book I've ever read, so I don't know to fully expect.

Ha ha! This is one of the best mangas in the world! Rumiko Takahashi is truly amazing! Akane's hair is short in this one too! And Ryoga first appears. An excellent beginning to the saga of the world's favorite guy-girl!

I read the Vol. 1 after borrowing it from my friend. In my opinion, it is one of the best issues in the series. Akane has long hair in it!! Her 'longevity' is short-lived, however. Kuno, while getting in a duel with Ranma, accidentally hacks off most of her hair with his lovely sword. That's why in all the other issues, her hair is short. I love the panda as Ranma's father! He is constantly the 'comic relief' in this already hilarious comedy. The quaint humor and rollicking antics render a reader speechless...with laughter! I highly recommend Vol. 1....it's the original working of Takahashi that jump-started the whole Ranma 1/2 series, and it's one of the best!

Rumiko Takahashi is my favorite manga author and Ranma 1/2 is her greatest work. The manga is hilarious and I just couldnt put the book down. I have read books 1-22 and each one is better than the others.
