Ranma 1/2 Live Action Drama this December

Can you believe it? The Ranma 1/2 Live Action Movie is airing this December!


“The Nikkan Sports newspaper published a picture of the cast in costume for the live-action television special inspired by Rumiko Takahashi's Ranma 1/2 martial arts comedy manga on Thursday. As a revival of the manga, the special tells an original story centering around Akane Tendō (played by Yui Aragaki). Kenta Kaku and Natsuna play the dual male/female roles of the title character.

In the story, Akane is determined to protect the family's legacy, its dōjō. However, her father Soun suddenly and arbitrarily announced one day that "only men can be heirs." Unfortunately, this puts Ranma in a bind, since he turns female when splashed with cold water after falling into a cursed hot spring in China.

To return himself to a "full man," Ranma searches for the "secret hot spring" and gets caught up in a battle with a mysterious enemy. Now Akane holds the key to the story. “

“The special will air during NTV's 7:00 p.m. Friday Super Prime timeslot (9th Dec) in December. The original manga ran in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine from 1987 to 1996, and Shogakukan printed 53 million copies of the compiled book volumes.”

I don’t know about you but Ranma’s actor looks a little too skinny for me . Let’s hope he will charm and mesmerize us like how Ranma has Open-mouthed smile
