After taking a surprise dip in a cursed spring while on a training journey in China, martial artist Ranma Saotome and his father, Genma, aren’t quite themselves anymore. Now Ranma turns into a girl whenever he’s splashed with cold water, and Genma turns into a panda! Their new forms cause nothing but confusion at the Tendo Dojo, where Soun Tendo is waiting to introduce one of his three daughters to Ranma—as his fiancée! Turns out Genma and Soun arranged the match long ago, but the girl, Akane, and the boy, Ranma, aren’t exactly crazy about the idea, or each other! Or are they? Watch the gender switching, jealous rages, and martial arts battles unfold all over again!

  • Ranma 1/2 on Season 1 is good to see

    By Benny E.Vilca
    Ranma 1/2 began on the Original run April 15, 1989 – September 16, 1989!Ranma ½ (Japanese: らんま½ Hepburn: Ranma Nibun-no-Ichi?, pronounced Ranma One-Half) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi. It was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Sunday from September 1987 to March 1996, with the chapters collected into 38 tankōbon volumes by Shogakukan. The story revolves around a 16-year old boy named Ranma Saotome who was trained from early childhood in martial arts. As a result of an accident during a training journey, he is cursed to become a girl when splashed with cold water, while hot water changes him back into a boy. Ranma ½ had a comedic formula and a sex-changing main character, who often willfully transforms into a girl to advance his goals. The series also contains many other characters, whose intricate relationships with each other, unusual characteristics, and eccentric personalities drive most of the stories. Although the characters and their relationships are complicated, they rarely change once the characters are firmly introduced and settled into the series. The manga has been adapted into two anime series created by Studio Deen: Ranma ½ and Ranma ½ Nettōhen (らんま½ 熱闘編?), which together were broadcast on Fuji Television from 1989 to 1992. In addition, they developed 12 original video animations and three films. In 2011, a live-action television special was produced and aired on Nippon Television. The manga and anime series were licensed by Viz Media for English-language releases in North America. Madman Entertainment released part of the anime series and the first two movies in Australasia, before their license expired, and MVM Films released the first two movies in the United Kingdom.

    By Crimson 17
    I never thought I'd see this show on iTunes, but I am certainly glad to see it here. Ranma 1/2 is a brilliant romantic comedy with a a lot of hilarious, entertaining, and sometimes even emotional moments. Despite it's strange set up it delivers a lot of brillaint material and great characters. I love this anime and hope that the other seaons will be added later.
  • Digital not worth it

    By TuxedoCartman
    First of all, Ranma 1/2 as a show gets five stars. It's a classic, and I enjoy watching it as much now as I did when I first saw it on VHS. However, the iTunes version only comes in English-dubbed format, with no option for Japanese w/ English subtitles. And yet it costs nearly the same as the Blu-Ray edition which offers both. I'm upset that iTunes does not state which language the show is in, either; I had to purchase one episode to find this out.
  • Ranma 1/2.

    By lanzinis
    After all these years it's finally digital. I got in on blu ray when it came out!
  • An excellent classic

    By Thegevin
    This series is a favorite of mine. Very funny romantic comedy with lots of fun kung fu thrown in. This series will probably feel a bit dated by younger audiences, many might not have the patience for the episode count (143, not counting OVAs), but the characters loveable & can really grow on you. **For those of you curious as to why the series is only just now coming to iTunes, it is due to the Bluray release. If not for that, it would probably never have come.
  • Excellent!
