"Father knows best." Then you grow up, and suddenly you're challenging everything he says. Pity poor Genma Saotome, who once took treats from baby son Ranma with impunity, but now gets pummeled instead. Will the dreaded "Cradle From Hell" technique teach the boy to respect his old man? Next, Akane makes some magic mochi. Do the marks that appear on the faces of those who eat it portend true fortune-telling ability, or just (as Ranma says) a "dagger of agony through (the) skull?" Finally, it's the dawn of the "Mariko Konjo, Cheerleader of L-O-V-E" storyline. One, two, three, four! Buy this book and read some more!
