The fun of Ranma 1/2 is now making its way to a new streaming service after getting around for the past few years. Viz Media will be bringing the series to Funimation’s streaming service on October 20th, 2020 for fans to enjoy there for the first time. The series will be in bilingual form where it’ll be available to Funimation subscribers in the US and Canada where Viz Media holds the rights to the anime.

Check out all our Ranma 1/2 coverage here.

Plot concept: Sentaro, successor to Martial Arts Tea Ceremony, makes Ranma battle the grandmaster as his wife to break off his arranged marriage meeting. Does Ranma have what it takes to master this new form of martial arts? After that, the world of martial arts gets even bigger with the introduction of Martial Arts Shogi, Martial Arts Dining, and Martial Arts Calligraphy.

The hijinks continue as the true identity of the principal is revealed, Ranma’s friends and family are turned into frogs, and okonomiyaki master Ukyo faces hot competition from Crepe Joe! Lastly, a new student at school named Gosunkugi, who instantly falls in love with Akane, tries to use curses to eliminate Ranma so he can have her all to himself!
