Ranma and his father go on a training mission to China. When they jump into a hot spring things get a little strange. It turns out they jumped into a cursed spring. Now when they are in cold water Ranma turns into a girl and his father turns into a panda. Hot waters turns them back to normal.This manga is by the author of InuYasha (a favorite manga of mine) and I've been wanting to read this for awhile. I am happy that I finally read it because it is awesome! It is so funny and action packed. I was eager to turn each page and see what would happen next. I also really like the characters and thought the story was interesting. Very funny, too, of course. Definitely recommend this to anyone who loves manga.
