The Ranma ½: Live Action Special is a special two-hour live action episode which includes an original story not from either the anime or manga that is set to air on a Friday in December at 7:00 p.m. as part of NTVs "Friday Super Prime timeslot" that was first revealed on September 26th 2011.[1][2][3]

Yoshihiro Izumi scripted this first live-action version of the series after having written the live-action television and film versions of the Rookies baseball manga.

Plot Overview

As the third daughter of the Tendō family, Akane is determined to protect the family's legacy, its dōjō. However, her father Soun suddenly and arbitrarily announced one day that "only men can be heirs." Unfortunately, this puts Ranma in a bind, since he turns female when splashed with cold water after falling into a cursed hot spring in China. To return himself to a "full man," Ranma searches for the "secret hot spring" and gets caught up in a battle with a mysterious enemy. Now Akane holds the key to the story.[2]
