Plot Summary: Saotome Ranma, a teenage martial artist, and his father Genma travel to the ‘cursed training ground’ of Jusenkyo in China. There, despite the warnings of the Chinese guard, they fall into the cursed springs. From now on, whenever Ranma is doused in cold water, he turns in to a girl, and a cute, well-built red-head at that. Hot water changes him back into a man again, but only until the next time. To make matters worse, his father engages him to Tendo Akane, a girl who hates boys.

I would love not just a adaption of the last of the manga but with a true conclusion. Manga doesn’t even really.

[size=16]Well, the only I know is I like a lot this anime, I watched as a child… few days ago… ajajaj[/size]

I would love to see more too, but I am with SuperMutant. Has an online petition ever worked?
I have seen this same petition on a couple other forum boards.

I thought it ended when Ramna fell in the spring of the drowned dog-demon and then was cast back in time by one of his rivals, where he met a priestess who bound him to a tree for 50 years?

Looks like the Thinpaks are going out of print. The first one has been de-listed on Rightstuf and Warner bros store. Others should follow as stock runs out. Not sure if this means Viz is letting go or if they are planning to rerelease it and hopefully Maison Ikkoku when the new Inuyasha series starts getting released on DVD.

Ranma 1/2 Set 6 In stores this Summer!

That means only 1 more volume left to complete the TV series in September.

I wonder if they will do a Blu-Ray Movies / OVA vol 8 in December…

(May have to wait on it since the package just came out in Japan)

Good, I can now replace my non conformist 1st movie (I somehow got one of the copies that came in a paperboard container DVD case size with a CD jewel case located at the bottom of the package)
