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...more
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.
"Ranma! What did you ever do to a MAILBOX?!" "I never did nothin' to a mailbox!"
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!

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
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.
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?
A slightly repetitive story line, but full of zany, kung-fu fun.
pretty good.
