 {Name}     {Description}
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
 Ranma      A young martial artist who was cursed during a training trip with
            his father Genma at Jusenkyo. His curse turns him into a girl when
            he touches cold water.
            
 Akane      Ranma's first fiancée, she is the youngest of the three Tendo
            sisters and is a formidable martial artist. She hates Ranma, who
            is constantly calling her uncute.

 Shampoo    Ranma's second fiancée, she is an amazon from China who was beaten
            by Ranma-chan and set off to kill her. After finding out Ranma was
            a man, she swore to marry him. She also trained at Jusenkyo and
            was cursed to turn into a cat whenever touched by cold water.            

 Mousse     One of Ranma's many rivals, he lusts after Shampoo and is intent
            on killing Ranma to make Shampoo his bride. He was cursed at

            loves both Akane and Ranma-chan, whom he calls 'the pig-tailed

            Kodachi attends an all-girl school.

 Ryouga     Ranma's main rival, he loves Akane but is too shy to tell her. He
            was cursed at Jusenkyo to turn into a black piglet when he touches
            cold water. Akane found him in piglet form and took him as her pet,
            "P-Chan". She doesn't know that Ryouga and P-Chan are the same.

            stealing women's undergarments. He is extremely powerful and
            seeks to be done away with by his students.

 Genma      Ranma's father, he was cursed at Jusenkyo to turn into a panda
            whenever he touches cold water. Genma will turn into a panda at
            anytime he is threatened in order to avoid danger.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
                                      
Yappappaa, Yappappaa, Ii-Shan-Ten. Hashagu koi wa, ike no koi.
Yappappaa, Yappappaa, Ii-Shan-Ten. Mune no tai wa, dakaretai.

Wake mo wakarazu ni, Ranma Ranma de higa kureru.
Kimi to aate kara. Ranma Ranma de, nandakanda to, suttamonda no seikimatsu.

Naze mooto shizuka ni, suki da yo to ienai no.
Hariau to watashi mo jaja umani natchau!
Beru mo, narasazu ni, soyokaze no you ni.
Mune no wanruumu.
Sumitsuita kimi na no.
Meiwaku yo dakedo.
Konya dake ii wa, ashita made ii wa.

Yappappaa, Yappappaa, Ran-Shan-Ten. Odoru kisu wa umi no kisu.
Yappappaa, Yappappaa, Ran-Shan-Ten. Koi no aji wa kakushi aji.

Mitsume rareru tabi,
Ranma Ranma de, me ga mawaru.
Koi ni narisou de,
Ranma Ranma de, tanma tanma de, sonna mon ne to otomodachi.

Hakuryoku de kudokare, hoshi no machi nige deshita.
Yumemiteta deito ga, marason ni natchau!
Kayui meruhen mo otome ni wa biyaku.
Kimi no yasashisa ni tsutsumarete mitai no.
Joodan yo dakedo.
Haato wa sukechau, itsuka wa sukechau.

Yappappaa, Yappappaa, Ii-Shan-Ten. Hashagu koi wa, ike no koi.
Yappappaa, Yappappaa, Ii-Shan-Ten. Mune no tai wa, dakaretai.

Mitsume rareru tabi, Ranma Ranma de me ga mawaru.
Koi ni narisou de, Ranma Ranma de otomodachi.
Wake mo wakarazu ni, Ranma Ranma de higa kureru.
Kimi to aate kara, Ranma Ranma de, nandakanda to suttamonda no seikimatsu.
