Twelve years after the manga... and something terrible has happened. Stuck in his cursed form, and working as a police officer, Ranma fights to isolate herself from her past life. Then, she is forced to confront it when a police investigation uncovers a plot that leads back to an old acquaintance.[3]

12 years after the events of the Manga and Ranma is working for the Tokyo Police Special Operations Division. She's permanently female and her life is almost totally focussed on her police work, there not being much else to live for. She also takes a lot of risks, resulting in quite a lot of incidental damage while chasing a suspect. The suspect is caught, and it turns out that there is a lot more to this case than meets the eye. Ranma won't be able to hide from her past much longer...[4]
