Let me just start out by saying I absolutely love this cover. Gorgeous!

Volume 17 contains some of my personal favorite stories from the anime - Kuno with amnesia, Ukyo's 10 year sauce than Ranma ruined, Akane and Ranma pretending to be married, the octopus pot, and Gosunkugi and his shikigami.

Nabiki: You mean you don't remember lil' Nabiki at all?
Kuno: I'm sorry.
Nabiki: Or the 5,000 yen I let you borrow?
Kuno: You did? *gives her 5,000 yen*
Kasumi: Nabiki! Trying to trick 5,000 yen out of an amne

I guess I was feeling nostalgic.
I don't know if there's a reason to read past volume 17.
I’m still a Ryoga fan though.

It took me a whole week to read this volume because I've been so busy and haven't been able to get much reading in... so I hardly remembered any of it. Haha! After flipping through the volume to refresh my memory, the storylines were alright. Nothing too interesting or too boring. I felt bad for Ukyo :-( I really don't care much for Akane. I'm not sure why... typically girls like Akane who are tough and don't take a lot of crap are my favorite kinds... but she's just really obnoxious for some re ...more
The first chapter isn't that great despite the title, everything else is excellent.
Lots of laughs, weird romanticism & action.
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.

Grandes misterios de Goodreads: ¿Por qué figuraba como no marcado este tomo cuando estoy bastante seguro de haberlo readeado hace varios años? Respuesta: algo me dice que tiene que ver con Librarians que se mandan cagadas. La próxima espero dedicarle la reseña del libro al libro en sí... ¬¬
Another wacky volume in the adventures of Ranma and Akane's love . . . whatever shape they are in now. This time sees melon battles, a fake romance due to sauce that has been tampered with and the return of an old foe. Hilarious, zany and just a fun ride.
They say you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. But I did - And I was right ;) This series is amazing! You get genderbender, fantasy, action, romance and slapstick-humor along with intense serious moments, what more can you want?
