[Drama] Ranma 1/2

For real!? Ranma 1/2 live action drama?!

No kidding! The ever popular Ranma 1/2 (Serialised 1987-1996) by Rumiko Takahashi is having a 2 hour long live action drama due to air on the 9th December 2011!!!

The story remains true to the original except... featuring... Akane Tendou as the main character... ^^;

Akane is the protag in this 2 hour live action drama!!! They should probably called it "Akane meets Ranma 1/2" instead lol

Story:
The 16 year old boy Ranma Saotome and his father Genma accidentially fell into the cursed springs at Jusenkyo while training in martial arts. When someone falls into a cursed spring, they take the physical form of whatever drowned there hundreds or thousands of years ago whenever they come into contact with cold water. Since then Ranma is cursed to become a girl when splashed with cold water, but hot water will change him back into a boy.

Upon returning to Japan, they stayed at the dojo of Genma's old friend Soun Tendo. It turns out that Genma and Soun agreed that their children would marry and carry on the Tendo Dojo. Soun has three teenaged daughters - Kasumi, Nabiki and the hot-tempered martial arts practicing Akane. As Akane is Ranma's age she is appointed as the fiancee...

Cast:
Akane Tendou @ Yui Aragaki
Ranma Saotome (Male) @ Kento Kaku
Ranma Saotome (Female) @ Natsuna
Tendo Soun @ Namase Katsuhisa
Saotome Genma @ Furuta Arata
Tendo Kasumi @ Hasegawa Kyoko
Ono Tofu @ Tanihara Shosuke

Thoughts:
* CGing of transformation?
* CGing of Panda...? lol *Kungfu Panda comes to mind*
* Cloth will be on all the time... right? XDDDDD
* Seems like limited cast... no Shampoo, Ryouga and the rest... D:
* It seems like they toned down the colours abit to make it work for non-anime fans
* Same house setting... or just random!? D:

Couldn't quite imagine what Ranma would look like initially when I saw the news article... since Kento Kaku had curly hair. lol I wonder what how the other characters look too! :P

I can barely wait... mainly because Ranma 1/2 is the first manga that I have ever read!!! (Despite having slight sexual references lol ) Thank you to my brother for liking manga in the first place! XD
