Ranma 1/2

Ranma 1/2 is a Japanese Anime show which ran from 1989 to 1992, for seven seasons and 143 episodes.

It was later dubbed into English (a really high quality dub too) and is now considered to be a classic by North American anime fans. The same animation company later produced the very popular Inuyasha series.

Both Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha were manga comic books written by Rumiko Takahashi. The manga stories becoming the basis for the animation series, which is typical for many Japanese anime to follow in the wake of a successful manga run.

They also produced 3 films for the Ranma 1/2 series, 11 original OVA/OAV episodes between 1993 and 1996.

A 12th OVA was produced in 2010 called "Nightmare! Incense of Deep Sleep", as a commemorative story celebrating many of the characters from original series. It used to be available on YouTube, but is not any more.

In 2011, there was also a "Ranma 1/2 Live-action Special"... and no comment on that. As we have not seen it yet. Only seen the trailer, which appears to be live action remake of the first 3 episodes.
