Ranma 1/2


Title: Ranma 1/2

Author: Rumiko Takahashi

Summary: Ranma Saotome was your average guy until he fell into a cursed hot spring. Now whenever dowsed with hot water, he turns into a girl! Only cold water can change him back. Even worse, he just found out that he’s been engaged to a ill-tempered tomboy named Akane Tendo. Add in some crazy suitors, a panda father, a psychotic principal, some deadly cooking, and the Tendo school of martial arts, and you’ve got Ranma 1/2.

Who will like this book?: People into fighting, but not just boxing or sparring. Wacky martial art styles and weird twists are common, so you’ve got to be up for anything. There is romance too, and some nudity. This is rated Older Teen (16+)
