Young martial artist Ranma Saotome along with his father Genma Saotome go on a training expedition to China to its cursed training grounds Jusenkyo where they both end up falling into the cursed springs where both Ranma is cursed with turning into a girl and Genma is cursed to becoming a Panda. Only touching hot water is the only way for them to turn back to their original forms but will return to their cursed forms once again when splashed with cold water.

Things are only complicated further when Ranma discovers that his father has arranged for him to marry one of Soun Tendo's three daughters in order to secure the future of the Tendo dojo. Though Soun learns of Ranma's predicament, he is still determined to go ahead with the engagement, and chooses his youngest daughter Akane Tendo, who happens to be a skilled martial artist herself and is notorious for hating men.
