Deft Touch, also listed as A Deft Touch, is written by Duncan Zillman and began online publication in ????. It currently stands incomplete at three instalments, the most recent of which was published in ????.


Ranma arrives and has a new technique. Unfortunately, it's uncontrollable, and he has already caused some horrible injuries with it purely by accident. Oh, the technique is also much stronger when he's male, so he's trying to stay a girl as much as possible until he can learn to control it.[1]

A small red-headed girl and a one-armed Panda turn up at the Tendo Dojo. Akane is in love. The girl is everything she ever wanted. Quickly she moves to make friends with the girl and challenges her to a sparring match Ranma wins the match easily, but just before she touches Akane, she breaks off and collapses sobbing! Why is this? Apparently she's the master of something called the Deft Touch, a martial arts technique that can be used to shatter anything by touching it. Unfortunately Ranma cannot control it very well, destroying things accidentally unless she's very careful. And it's much worse when Ranma is in boy form...[2]
