Well today Viz Media has announced that the first omnibus will be released on March 11th, marking the first time that the Ranma 1/2 manga has been available in its original right to left reading style.

Each omnibus will cost $14.99 U.S. / $16.99 CAN and for those who don’t know, the manga follows the story of Ranma Saotome, a martial artist who was cursed at the Chinese training ground in Junsenkyo causing him to turn into a young woman anytime he is splashed with cold water.

Although he can turn back into a boy with hot water, that is the least of his worries as he soon finds himself chased by both men and women looking for a fight and also for love.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
