A pig is savaging the young men of Tokyo, and at first Ranma suspects that Ryoga (who turns into a piglet) has finally snapped. But then the pig attacks Ryoga, and is defeated by him. Turns out that whoever defeats the pig wins the hand and heart of Akari, a pretty young girl who is obsessed with pigs -- and adores Ryoga. But when she accidently offends him, Ranma resorts to magical incense to bring them together... with bizarre results.
More mayhem ensues when Ranma's father tries a new hair-grown remedy, resulting in spiky metallic hair that only grows when he's enraged. In an effort to tame Ranma, Miss Hinako uses fighting fish to stay in her adult form. A magical cherry tree possesses Kuno. And a magical spatula levels one of Ukyo's friends -- and then sticks to Ranma's fingers.
But then Ranma catches a very contagious cold, which temporarily makes him unable to transform into a girl. It's the perfect opportunity to meet his mother, but Happosai and Genma promptly foul the whole thing up. Even worse, Ranma's mother catches a glimpse of her "manly" son... wearing a bra to entrap Happosai.
Rumiko Takahashi balances out humor and pathos well in this volume -- on one hand we've got Hinako, Kuno and Ryoga, whose romantic luck finally changes for the better. One of the funniest moments is when Ranma uses magical incense on Ryoga, causing him to passionately hug anyone who says "pig." On the other hand, we have poor Ranma's continuing efforts to meet his mother in his male form, even risking suicide to see her.
Takahashi also introduces us to Akari, who looks a bit like Kagome from her "Inuyasha" series. She also happens to be Ryoga's soulmate, a girl who bolsters his fragile ego and thinks that he's perfect because he turns into a pig. Too bad Ryoga still has a thang for Akane, who hasn't got a clue that he adores her. And too bad Ryoga's hopeless sense of direction keeps him from meeting up with Akari...
Romantic problems and familial difficulties torment Ranma and his pals in the twenty-eighth volume of "Ranma 1/2." Only time (and Takahashi) will tell whether their problems will be dealt with.... (To Be Continued)
