Ranma, raised to be a man among men, has a bit of a problem: he is half woman! While training in China he fell into a strange magic spring at Jusenkyo. Now, he is eternally cursed to change into a beautiful woman whenever he is hit by cold water, but that may be the least of his problems; his father has betrothed him to marry! There's never a dull day for Ranma as he attempts to find a cure for his curse, train to become stronger, and grapple with the fact that half of himself may be more feminine than his fiancée!
Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...
Both Fumoffu and Ranma are comedy-packed and have action and romance. If you like to see a tough girl beat up her love interest, these are both great choices.
Both of these shows are simply for laughs because there isn't much of an ongoing plot. They also both have a tough girl who gets really annoyed over a male who they can't admit to really liking.

Aided by a stuffed tiger, Natsuru must now battle it out with other boobalicious babes and continue to try to get close to Kaede – a task that will now be easier as she’s fallen for Natsuru’s female form! Can Natsuru keep his secret safe while maintaining his double life?
A classic romantic comedy from the 1980's, telling the bittersweet story of three high school students. The series features very unique storytelling and direction, music from some of the biggest Japanese pop acts of the 1980's, and an added twist as Kyosuke and his family are ESPers, whose powers are used to tell unique stories and put the characters in unusual situations.
Kimagure has a style similar to that of Ranma. KOR is also an incredibly funny series. If you liked the strange slapstick humor in Ranma, you'll like it in Orange Road.
In the same genre as Ranma 1/2 and maison ikkoku 80's anime with much fun and the little enjoyments in life with a love story in the background.
gotta love it :D

The reason? Love. But to add to Miki's disbelief, she may get a new "brother," and he may just happen to be in love with her...
Both of these anime are loaded with love triangles and romantic comedy. It can get confusing at times, but it is worth it.
same basic scenario of boy living with girl leading to love. the main difference is that marmalade boy is much more dramatic. also both animes have a lot of love triangles.

Naruto and Ranma 1/2 are both martial arts-based with magical twists; deal with school, learning, and fighting; and almost complement each other. Although Ranma 1/2 is milder, Naruto is a refreshing burst of maturity, and Ranma is a childish reminder of carefree days. Anyone who likes one will be addicted instantly to the other.
Naruto and Ranma ½ vary greatly in animation style, yet the characters parallel each other. Naruto and Ranma ½ contain martial arts and unrealistic yet fun to watch special moves that each character can offer. Naruto and Ranma, the main characters respectively, mirror each other in their cluelessness toward others' feelings. They are short tempered, not the brightest, but ready to fight for what they believe in. Overall, these two titles are sure to provide laughter because of the distinct personalities of each character, but also provide for sweet martial arts action.
