Futaba Shimeru used to be a typical, awkward teenager, eager to get closer to the opposite sex, especially his classmate, Misaki. But after suddenly transforming into a buxom female in the school bathroom, Futaba discovers that there's more to his genes than meets the eye! As now that Futaba is an adolescent, he has gained the unique ability of the Shimeru bloodline to transform into the opposite sex. Unfortunately for the boy, for now, these outbursts are uncontrollable and are triggered by stressful situations. And given his female alter ego must now attend the same school and fight off the advances of his peers, Futaba's peaceful life will never be the same!
Both are comedic shounen series with a gender-bending main character. Futaba-kun has more ecchi moments and is much shorter than Ranma, but both are packed with action and romantic comedy.
two totaly awesome gender benders that will have you laughing forever.i haven't read most of ranma 1/2 but i have seen the anime. defiantly recommend them.
