Ranma ½ is a Japanese anime television series that Studio Deen created. The first episode aired in 1989, and there is 161 episodes total, with 72 of those reported as fillers. This means that they don’t add anything significant to the plot but help move things along at certain points during an arc or storyline instead.
Ranma Saotome and his father Genma fall into the cursed springs at Jusenkyo. When someone falls into a spring, they take on whatever drowned there hundreds or thousands of years ago whenever they come in contact with cold water; a curse that will remain until their next exposure to hot water! That’s just what happened when Ranma took a header across this ancient basin: he turned into an adorable girl complete with pigtails.
