The Romeo and Juliet Arc is the 15th story arc covered in the Ranma ½ manga, spanning four chapters. This arc was included in Volume 8 of the Weekly Shōnen Sunday tankōbon and Volume 7 of the Viz Media tankōbon.

Plot SummaryEdit

Akane is chosen to be Juliet in the school's performance of Romeo and Juliet, with Ranma, Kuno, Happosai and Gosunkugi fighting over the role of Romeo.[1] Despite the other's best attempts to dispose of Ranma,[2] he still succeeds in getting to the stage on time before dealing the other would-be Romeos.[2][3][4]

Unfortunately, with Akane now asleep thanks to Gosunkugi, the play changes to Sleeping Beauty. With the the head judge assuring Ranma he'll win and get to "see China" if he wins, Ranma goes along with the changes and tries to kiss Akane, but can't bring himself to do so. Luckily Akane awakes and helps Ranma to kiss her by taping over his mouth.[4] That evening, however, Ranma and Akane return to the Tendo Dojo to learn that the prize was to meet Mr. Ryokou, known by his friends as "China", much to Ranma's devastation.[4]
