Plot : At the end of their training mission, Genma decides to take up residence with his old training partner, Soun Tendo, owner of the Tendo dojo and head of the Tendo school of anything-goes martial arts, dragging a reluctant Ranma along with him. Soun and Genma discuss the arrangements they had made in the past involving Ranma becoming engaged to one of Soun's three daughters in order to combine the two schools and allow Ranma to inherit the Tendo dojo. It's informally decided that he is to be engaged to Akane Tendo, Soun's youngest daughter, and the two must put up with one another - and their engagement - as Ranma and his father settle into domestic life at the Tendo household.
Our Review : Ranma ½ is another one of the great Rumiko Takahashi series. Rumiko also notably made (Maison Ikkoku, Urusei Yatsura, and Inuyasha). This in my opinion like most is her second greatest series. It's one of the funniest series ever made, it follows the story of Ranma a boy whose gender changes upon being hit by cold or hot water. Needless to say this allows for some truly hilarious situations.
