Ranma 1/2 Volume 9 by Rumiko Takahashi

book 10: Ranma 1/2 Volume 9 by Rumiko Takahashi

Ranma finally finishes up his duel with Mousse, after some duck mistaken identity, some interference from parties with ulterior motives, and showing Akane that his martial ego couldn't stand to throw a fight, even if there could be desirable benefits. I loved the end scene when Shampoo took Mousse home (as I'm sure he would have if he had been conscious). Then Tsubasa Kurenai, a girl/boy/mailbox?, shows up to challenge Ranma as a suitor for Ukyo...then Akane...then female Ranma. Next, Ryoga finds a way to Akane's heart...puppies, but Ranma's jealous streak just can't let the couple be. Finally, Ranma heads to a women's hot spring to learn Happosai's ultimate technique.
