the digital dojo : season 1DVD - 2007 | Japanese
The story of teenage martial artist Ranma Saotome, whose martial-artist father, Genma, takes Ranma from home at an early age to go on a decade-long training mission. Genma doesn't speak a word of Chinese, and yet he insists upon bringing Ranma to the cursed training ground known as Jusenkyo, where falling into one of the many springs there instantly turns you into whoever--or whatever--drowned there last. Ranma and Genma have a little accident and from then on, a splash of cold water turns Genma into a giant panda while Ranma turns into a red-haired (and problematically well-built) female version of himself. Hot water will reverse the effect, but only until the next time. What's a half-guy, half-girl to do?
