A One-Two Punch of Action and Comedy by One of Japan's Most Beloved Creators! 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. 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? Play Time Akane's always wanted to play the role of Juliet on stage, and she's finally going to get her chance...that is, if she could just decide on one Romeo. Hidden springs, cookie contests, and persistent paparazzi-will Ranma's life ever settle down?
