Upcoming Airings of RANMA ½close
Genma is Ranma’s father and also a martial arts practitioner like his son. He was the one who trained Ranma in martial arts. He is very proud of his martial arts abilities, but this pride may sometimes be eclipsed by his lazy nature. Genma is also best friends with Soun Tendo, Akane’s father. After falling into the cursed springs of Jusenkyo, Genma changes into a panda when he touches cold water; while in this form, he can only communicate through written signs.
