The male Ranma Saotome, the main character of Ranma 1/2, is the male form of Ranma, and his normal form. Because of a Chinese curse, he transforms into a woman whenever he is doused with cold water. He turns back into a male whenever he is doused with hot water. He wants to change this, and wants to find a way to break the curse.
The male form of Ranma was originally voiced by Sarah Strange for the first 3 seasons of the anime, all 12 OVA episodes, and both movies before taking leave to pursue other interests.
Ranma was voiced by Richard Ian Cox for the final 4 seasons of Ranma 1/2.
