Description
[From Viz]:

Being a teenage 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 spring 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 fiancée 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?

Ranma 1/2 is...

...a timeless manga that was probably a gateway comic for many of us. Though I agree that Ranma 1/2 lacks a stable plot and may sometimes feel repetitive, one of the good qualities I always found about this manga is that you can pick up any volume to read and not get too lost due to its episodic nature. It's also easy to like Takahashi's characters - all of them have their own quirks without falling into overly-stereotypical roles. I think it's also important to remember that Ranma 1/2 was an extremely innovative series for its time, and even to this day has very original qualities. I recommend this comic for anyone who just wants a lighthearted, enjoyable read, and who can use a smile.

If I could, I would give this manga an eleven. It has a large spot in my heart.

If you haven't read Ranma yet, perhaps you should. Typical of a Takahashi Rumiko work, it suffers from extended plot syndrome, which could have been more or less shortened, but due to it's comical nature, it doesn't suffer as much as any other manga would. Hilarious, Takahashi's art style and comical approach will leave you in tears of mirth. The only thing you can expect from this manga, is the crazy hilarity and unexpectedness. A gem and a classic, a must read.

Creative and silly. The characters are all distinctive (and exaggerated) and delightful. I never get tired of their antics.

The only really bad thing here is the lenght, but is't Rumiko so it's no surpise. Anyway I love this manga, the characters are extremely original, the humor brilliant, and the art fits the story soo well. You are never bored, at least not for the 25 first books. xD After that it gets a bit repetevtive, but not enough to make you quit the series.

If you are looking for a good laugh, this is the manga you are looking for. :3

It's been almost two years since I finished reading this manga and I still love every chapter, character and especially Ranma and Akane ^_^ <3
A loveable series with crazy characters and an ending volume that makes you want to laugh and scream at the same time!
Oh and if you're gonna read it, get ready for this particular scream:
"RAAAAAAAAAAAAANMAAAAAAAAAAAAAA NOOOOOO BAAAAAKAAAA!!!!!!!"
From Akane, yourself, and many others
wink cheers,

It starts off very funny with an original plot, but it quickly starts recycling into the same again and again. I tried reading this in one go but really couldn't. I guess it's an OK read if you take your time, though.

This is absolutely hilarious! But inspite of the humor it also points out a few gender issues.

I love this series. Even though people may say it has flaws, who is perfect. I reread it every once in a while, and I don't really mind the length. If you have time, like Takashi's work, and enjoy comedy with a gender bender twist, I suggest your try this out. I think you may really enjoy it!

i have to say, that this manga was very well done, funny most of the time and the and the drama.... well cant say there was realyl any since each time there was one it turns into to something funny.

cant say that it had a nice ending in both anime and manga but the manga has a better conclusion than the anime. Well to tell u the truth i like the ending cause it is cool to be able to change gender, u can do perverted shit and will never get caught. well i like gender bender manga such as those.

nice manga though, worth watching twice
