Ranma 1/2, Vol. 11Unknown - 1998
The Story of a Boy Who Turns into a Girl... It's not easy being a teenaged martial artist named Ranma Saotome, but it's even worse when your martial artist father, Genma, takes you from home at an early age to go on a decade-long training mission to China. He doesn't speak a word of Chinese, and yet he insists on bringing you to the cursed training grounds known as Jusenkyo, where falling into one of many springs instantly turns you into whoever-or whatever-drowned there last. And then, the two of you have this little Accident... ...A Father Who Turns into a Panda... From now on, a splash of cold water will turn your father into a giant panda, while you...well, you turn into a red-haired (and incredibly well-built) female version of yourself. Hot water will reverse the effect, but only until the next time. What's a half-guy, half-girl to do? ...And the Weird Chinese Curse What did it to 'EM. In this, the eleventh Ranma 1/2 graphic novel, the search for the magical soap which offers a cure for the Jusenkyo curse continues; the malicious application of some strength-depleting moxa (you know, that stuff the acupuncture types burn on their patients to relieve various sufferings) puts Ranma in an embarrassing position; and finally, late-night training sessions in the wilds of Japan with Cologne (and Akane, and Ryoga) give Ranma the chance to learn his most powerful move yet: the Hiryu ShotenHa, a.k.a. "Heavenly Dragon Ascension Wave"-!
