After taking a surprise dip in a cursed spring while on a training journey in China, martial artist Ranma Saotome and his father, Genma, aren't quite themselves anymore. Now Ranma turns into a girl whenever he's splashed with cold water, and Genma turns into a panda! Their new forms cause nothing but confusion at the Tendo Dojo, where Soun Tendo is waiting to introduce one of his three daughters to Ranma--as his fiancée! Turns out Genma and Soun arranged the match long ago, but the girl, Akane, and the boy, Ranma, aren't exactly crazy about the idea, or each other! Or are they? Watch the gender switching, jealous rages, and martial arts battles unfold all over again!

Great anime, NO Japanese audio track for streamed episodes :(
Verified purchase
This was one of my favorite animes from back in the day (along with Love Hina!). The video quality is pretty good considering how old the source content is.

I was debating buying the Blue Ray or buying the digital episodes via Amazon Instant Video so I can watch on my mobile devices. I went ahead and purchased an episode to check it out. BEWARE- the streaming content via Amazon Instant Video only comes with the ENGLISH audio tracks! You can't switch to Japanese with English subtitles. You can only watch it in English, and English subs are optional. So I guess I will be buying the Blue Rays after all :p

A lovingly done HD re-release
Verified purchase
I was a little skeptical about an HD release of a show released so far ahead of high definition content, and yet the result is crisp and lovingly attended to. This version is not some effort to cash in on a show loved by so many, honestly you can see how much work went in to giving you an incredibly well touched up and cleaned version of such a great show.

A pretty good first episode.
Verified purchase
It doesn't seem to specify on the mobile site, but it's English-dubbed, which is fine with me, but it may turn off some purists. I can't really think of a proper review right now, but if you leave some comments and questions, I might get a better idea.
