I really liked this volume! The three storylines were really fun! I really liked the first one with Ranma and his dad! I love Genma so much!!! And the fan girl in me squeed for a decade in the second storyline when it (view spoiler)[appeared that the cherry blossom petals appeared on Ryoga's head!! (hide spoiler)] But then my hopes and dreams were crushed, as always :-( But that still didn't make sense to me... why didn't Ranma and Ryoga (view spoiler)[get X's on their faces then? So if everyone...more
Silliness continues in this volume of Ranma 1/2. This time out, Ranma's father Genma wants to put the boy in his place, so he challenges him to an all out fight to the finish. Ranma thinks it's going to be a piece of cake, until Genma shows him a technique he has not seen before. Then Akane finds a mochi recipe that, when eaten, will cause marks to appear on the face of the maker's soul mate. You can imagine what happens when first Ryoga, then Ranma bite get the marks.

i've learnt my lesson - leave a decent gap in between volumes of gag manga, and they come across much more fresh and funny. Ranma 1/2 was one of the first manga i ever read, and i loved it, but i read too much in quick succession and got bored (feckin Shampoo and Mousse didn't help, either). however, after a long break, this volume made me giggle quite a lot, mostly at Kuno's inspired density and Genma's signs.
Ah, I remember this from the anime! It was toward the end, like, five or so from the end. Good ol' martial arts cheerleading. Honestly, the fortune-telling mochi and cheerleading battles are two of my favorite episodes. It's really funny how in the manga, everyone knows about Ranma's curse, but in the anime Ranma tries to keep it hush-hush from everyone outside of the Tendo Dojo.

Ranma 1/2 if one of my all-time favorite manga series. There are times when the action gets a bit repetitive, but the insanity of the different schools of Anything Goes Martial Arts makes this one of the more entertaining shonen manga series around. It's a good mix of comedy, romance and action that just works well for me.
Estoy seguro de tener este tomo en LP y de haberlo leído, pero no estoy tan seguro de que verdaderamente equivalga a los tomos que dice equivaler según Goodreads. Ni bien lo tenga a mano y lo pueda corroborar, seguro arregle todo.
