Vol. 17, 18Book - 2014
A remastered 2-in-1 edition of the all-time classic hit from one of Japan's most beloved creators, available for the first time in a format faithful to the original work. One day, teenage martial artist Ranma Saotome went on a training mission with his father and ended up taking a dive into some cursed springs at a legendary training ground in China. Now, every time he's splashed with cold water, he changes into a girl. His father, Genma, changes into a panda! What's a half-guy, half-girl to do? Meet Picolet Chardin II, master of the trés terrifying "La Belle France School of Martial-Arts Dining." It turns out that Ranma's and Akane's fathers as they've been known to do, once or twice have promised one of their children in exchange for a debt, and now that debt's come due. If Ranma can't defeat Picolet at his own game, it'd be more than "La Belle France" it'd be wedding bells!
