Ranma 1/2 is a wacky and fun anime by Rumiko Takahashi. It's meant to be a humor anime, but it does have a lot of action in it. Sometimes it can be a bit too cartoony but that adds to fun of it. Now: how many of you guys out there have ever dreamt of being a woman? (C'mon, don't hold out on me now, guys.....because if you do I'm gonna look like a major perv!) Well, that's what Ranma 1/2 is all about! The story centers around Ranma, a talented (yet jerky) martial artist who goes to China to train in the legendary Jusenkyo training grounds. However, this is a dangerous training ground of cursed springs where if a person should be so unfortunate to fall in they will be transformed into the last living creature who drowned in that spring. Some of the main creatures include a piglet, a young girl, and a goose. (Question: how does a goose drown? Think about it, won't you?) As you can already guess, there's gonna be a little explaining to do to Akane, Ranma's betrothed future (and "energetic") wife, who doesn't like Ranma at all. Now, Ranma has to live a "normal" life going to school, free-loading at the Tendo's Dojo, and repelling attacks of many misunderstanding and very violent enemies.
