Volume 9: Enter Tsubasa and all of her (view spoiler) ineffective disguises, Ranma pretending to be Ryoga's little sister, and the hunt for the scroll containing the secret of Happosai's dreaded Happo Fire Burst -- which of course leads to a hot spring where gender-bending shenanigans ensue. This is one of my all-time favorites in the whole series. My best friend gave me a copy as a present for my fourteenth (or fifteenth?) birthday! (D'aaaw!, friendship)

Someone really needs to fix these descriptions.

In this volume, Mousse tries to turn Akane into a duck, Ryoga asks Akane over to his house and Ranma gets jealous, and Happosai is back burglarizing the neighborhood of it's panties.

Talk about day in and day out adventures with Ranma and his friends. I enjoyed reading this manga series. A must read.

Several times during this series I've lamented how the characters acted as though it was only possible for one man and one woman to have a romantic union. I'm monogamous and heterosexual, but I can at least recognize that someone else might want something else, and given how subversive Ranma 1/2 is of gender politics, this take on sexuality seemed out of character.

Well, the series addressed that in this book and annihilated any of my complaints.

Remember Ukyo, the tomboy so convincing that Ranma

Part 1: Akane Becomes a Duck: Ranma fights to save Akane. Shampoo gets some of the water and tries to turn Akane into a duck. In the end Akane gets blasted through the tent by the water, and the last frame has a duck in it.

Part 2: Fowl Play: Ranma finds the duck and brings it home, thinking it's Akane, and Soun demands they get married, but the real Akane shows up. Mousse and Ranma will fight and if Ranma loses Mousse gets to date Shampoo. Shampoo tries to throw the fight but eventually stops i

Following directly on from volume 8, this has the concluding part to the story in which short sighted Mousse, to gain Shampoo's affections, decides to use duck spring water on Akane. Hilarity ensues when Ranma is tricked into thinking Akane is a duck.

Gender bending is taken to a new level in the next tale. We meet Tsubasa in love with Ukyo (the girl who looks like a boy - who was Ranma's finance we met in the last volume) - confusion abounds as Ukyo telling her he's really a girl fails to put h

Yay I'm finally happy to be getting back to Ranma from my short break of 1) reading other books and 2) waiting for the 7th book for weeks to come in at the library. Unfortunately, I wasn't too crazy about this volume. Don't get me wrong, I still loved it (after all, Shampoo was in it and I love her! Haha!) but in terms of story line, I wasn't particularly impressed with this volumes stories. They were kind of "meh" for me. But I still really love this series, and of course this volume had plenty ...more
As always I found this volume of Ranma 1/2 to be as enjoyable as the last! Even though the action can get a bit on the repetitive side, overall the humor and plot always makes it a fun read! One of the funniest parts in this had to be when Ranma pretended to be Rouga's "long lost sister Yoiko" which still makes me laugh!

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?

Every now and again I've got to re-read Ranma 1/2. Rumiko Takahashi is a great story teller. This is one of the funniest manga I have ever read.
