Vol. 9Book - 2004
Ranma is a teenage martial artist begrudgingly betrothed to Akane, daughter of his father's closest friend. But their stormy relationship is the least of his troubles. Due to an encounter with a cursed spring, whenever Ranma is doused in cold water, he turns into a girl. In this volume: Shampoo's spurned suitor Mousse wants revenge, and to that end, he's kidnapped Akane, and made her the star attraction of a circus act that promises to have her transform into a duck. Then, mailbox-impersonating weirdo Tsubasa arrives in town in pursuit of Ukyo's love.
