Relatively Absent is written by Mark Shurtleff and began online publication February 19th, 2003.[1] It currently stands incomplete at a prologue and 11 chapters, the most recent of which was published on August 13th, 2004.[2]


The battle at Horai-san ended in disaster for Ranma when Herb's final defence shattered the mountain, burying Ranma deep in the rubble. Meanwhile an ancient artifact has lost it's guardian and must search for another. It finds one in an almost dead and buried girl. With the artifacts help, Ranma survives, but what of her now. Trapped as a girl and bonded to an ancient artifact, her life is definitely going to be different. At least she gets some unexpected help from her mothers family...[3]

Ranma Saotome fought a fierce and desperate battle against Herb of the Musk on Mount Horai to undo the effects of the curse-locking Chiisuiton. The repercussions of him losing this fight are far-reaching as they force the neo-girl to travel a very different path, one that leads her to be relatively absent from those who once knew her.[4]
