Little strange!!] The people in the city are surprised by the soaking wet panda that was chasing the boyish, young girl through the shopping area. At the Tendou home, the father was crying over the postcard that he received from Saotome Genma. "Ranma is coming... I've waited a long time for this day." But... episode 2 "asobijanainoyo gakkouha" [School is not fun and games] The peaceful morning at the Tendou home. Akane, who had become Ranma's fiance because her sisters pushed her, goes off to school with Ranma. At school, the captains of each of the clubs were fighting very hard to win Akane. In the middle, Kunou Tatewaki, with a rose and a wooden sword, was waiting.. Ranma 1/2 episode 2 title: asobijanainoyo gakkouha opening song: Jajaumani Sasenaide (Nishio Etsuko) ending song: Platonic Tsuranuite (Sakagami Kaori) aired: 89.04.22 Basically the same story as in the comics vol. 1, part 3 and 4. Ranma and Akane go to school, the fighting.. This episode ends with Ranma and Kunou jumping out of the school window and landing in the pool. Ranma 1/2 episode 3 title: ikinari aino arashi.. chotto matteyo. opening song: Jajaumani Sasenaide (Nishio Etsuko) ending song: Platonic Tsuranuite (Sakagami Kaori) aired: 89.04.29 This episode was basically part 5 of volume 1 of the manga. Ranma and Kunou jump out of the window and land in the pool.. Kunou grabs Ranma from behind.. Akane fights Kunou.. Ranma (girl) fights Kunou.. Kunou writes a note telling Ranma to meet him.. Kunou throws Ranma the roses.. There is one part that was not in the manga.. Ranma's father turns into the panda and tries to take a bath. But, the bathroom at the Tendou home is under repair. So he goes to the public bath so he can return to human form. As he comes home, Kasumi and Ranma accidently spill water on him! [I thought it was very funny] I noticed that in the credits at the end, Ranma is written in hiragana for the girl and kanji for the boy. \ / -+- -+- / \ / -+- / / |_ / -+- |_ ++) / |_ / -+- < / _) /\/ (|\ _) /\/ _) /\/ (|\ \ /\/ Ranma 1/2 episode 4 title: Ranma to ranma?

Ranma's dream.. Kunou asking Nabiki about Ranma.. Nabiki selling Ranma and Akane's pictures to Kunou.. Kunou and Ranma fight.. They are moving pretty slow, but if they didn't, they would catch up to the manga. This episode had more that was not in the manga. This episode had a lot of Nabiki, probably more than Ranma and Akane. Ranma 1/2 episode 5 title: honemade aishite? Akaneno koino fukuzatsukossetsu opening song: Jajaumani Sasenaide (Nishio Etsuko) ending song: Platonic Tsuranuite (Sakagami Kaori) aired: 89.05.13 The story was basically part 7 (last half) and part 8 from vol. 1 of the manga. [Finally, finished with volume one!] This episode was different from the manga at the beginning. When Akane was practicing with her father, she remembers what Ranma says to her and accidently knocks him out. Then, as Kasumi is taking care of her father, she makes Akane promise never to his another male from now on. Kasumi sends Akane shopping, and on the way, she meets Ranma. Akane stops herself and does not hit Ranma, at the beginning, but after he says more and more to bug her, she can't hold back any more and beats up Ranma. Then, she takes him to Tofu-sensei. From here, it is exactly the same as the manga..

Kasumi goes to Tofu-sensei's hospital.. After Tofu-sensei bends Ranma's neck, Akane leaves and then Ranma leaves.. **SPOILERS** this part is different from the manga.. Akane goes to the riverbed and is throwing stones into the river to cheer herself up. Ranma, with his neck bent, runs after her and finds her. Ranma thinks that Akane might be crying and takes a peek. She hits him, and puts Ranma's neck back in place. Akane cheers up a little and starts to walk home. Ranma follows her. Akane tells him not to follow her, but he follows anyways. When Akane asks Ranma why he is following her, Ranma just says "I can do whatever I like". Then, Akane says, "You must like me." Akane smiles and laughs and runs away. Ranma chases her, and accidently jumps into the river. On the way home, Akane and Ranma-chan go to a park and sit down and eat hamburgers together. Akane tells Ranma about Tofu-sensei and that he has always liked Kasumi. Ranma-chan then tells Akane that she should give up on Tofu-sensei. The ending is the same as the manga.

A wild boar comes into a small country village and Ryouga is just walking in the street. Ryouga stops the boar with just his umbrella. He then asks the surprised villagers where Fuurinkan High School is. This village was in Shikoku. Akane's sisters chase Ranma-chan around and force her to wear some clothes. (same as manga) Ryouga goes to Hokkaido and is lost again. Nabiki and Akane chasing Ranma-chan around.. Ryouga lost again, sees a building and opens the door to ask for directions.

Ryouga goes after Ranma with the umbrella. After considerable thinking, Ranma remembers about Ryouga and what happened at their jr. high school. Ranma runs out to buy all of the many kinds of bread that he had taken from Ryouga. (curry pan, yakisoba pan, melon pan, etc..) Ryouga and Ranma start to fight. Ranma jumps away. As Ryouga chases Ranma, Ryouga gets lost again. Ranma and Akane are still waiting for him at the entrance of the school. After running around for a while, Ryouga ends up at the same village in Shikoku! Ranma 1/2 episode 8 title: Gakkouha senjouda!

Some of the details have been changed. We don't get to see P-chan yet.. (next week) *** SPOILERS *** Chemistry club geeks building a bomb. It blows up in their faces. Ryouga wondering around looking for Ranma.. Ranma can't think why Ryouga is after him that much. At school, Akane's friends comment about how long her hair has grown. Akane says it's finally longer than Kasumi's. Then Tofu-sensei comes into her mind. Ryouga finally makes it to Ranma's school. They face off to fight. Nabiki and some of her friends are playing bookie and are taking bets on the fight. All of the classmates bet on Ranma. So, Nabiki has to find a way for Ryouga to win. The fighting starts.. The chemistry club geeks are watching the fight and thinking that if Ranma loses, Akane will be theirs. The fighting continues.. The chemistry club geeks plant "their bomb" and wait for Ranma to step on it. The bomb does not work as planned. Ranma and Ryouga keep fighting and they go out into the streets. Nabiki goes after them and gives Ryouga some vitamin pills and trys to help him. The fight continues and they end up in the zoo. They fight in the zoo and many animals escape. During the fight, Ranma kicks a drinking fountain and the water changes him into a girl. (from here, the story is basically the same as the manga) Ranma grabs Akane and jumps into the tree to save her. They hold each other.. yell at each other.. Akane has tears in her eyes as she slaps Ranma.. Then, Akane's hair gets cut! The zoo keepers are out finding the animals that escaped. They find a panda.. The panda ends up in the zoo!

Kamiha onnano inochinano opening song: Jajaumani Sasenaide (Nishio Etsuko) ending song: Platonic Tsuranuite (Sakagami Kaori) aired: 89.06.17 Mostly same as the manga.

An old lady is also lost and asks Ryouga for directions. Since he doesn't know, she asks him to take her to the police box so she can ask for directions. Akane goes to Tofu-sensei's place. He tells her she's cute and looks better in short hair. Akane starts to cry. On the way home, Ranma tries to comfort Akane. She tricks him and pushes him into the river. Ryouga takes the old lady to Kyuushuu! Finally after wandering around Japan for one week, he makes it to the police box. Ryouga goes to the Tendou home. Wants to fight Ranma at night, in the rain. Before the fight starts, Ryouga tells Ranma that he went to China chasing after him. The fight wakes up Akane and her sisters. They think it's robbers. Akane throws the barbell and hits Ryouga in the head. Ryouga loses his umbrella and runs away. (It seems that it takes a considerable amount of water for the transformation to take place. Ryouga gets wet a lot, but still didn't change.) Ranma chases after Ryouga. Finds his clothes and backback. Also finds the neighbor's dog. When Akane returns to her room, she finds P-chan. Ranma takes P-chan to the bath and dunks him in the hot water. They show P-chan struggling inside the water as Ranma is dunking him. So, the transformation is not immediate.

Then one day, a Panda and a girl knocked him into the spring which made him into a little black pig. The Panda picked up the pig and brought it to the Chinese guy to cook the pig. They threw the pig into the hot water, and Ryouga jumps out. While Ranma and Ryouga was arguing, the Panda walks in, and then puts up the sign "I'm sorry". Ryouga figures out that the girl who knocked him into the spring was Ranma. Ranma is chasing P-chan around the house. Akane saves him and hits Ranma. Then Akane kisses P-chan and goes to sleep with him. At night, Ranma sneaks into Akane's room and tries to take P-chan away from Akane. They fight, and Ranma ends up on top of Akane and wakes her up.

It seems like they are going to skip the 3 episodes about the ice skating pair. They say we will see Shampoo next week! (that's fine with me) The ending song and animation has changed. I didn't like the song. "Equal Romance" by CoCo. The new ending animation isn't as good as the previous two either.

He was on some martial arts training. He is starving and hasn't eaten in days. He meets a guy who is camping. The guy was cooking fish and was about to eat it. Genma begs for the food and finally trades Ranma for it. Ranma and his father are fighting over food. Akane is sitting at the table eating, wearing a very short, red mini-skirt. [I don't think she ever wore a mini skirt in the manga.] Then a stranger comes looking for Ranma. When he sees Ranma, this guy calls Ranma "son". He says that when Ranma marries his daughter Kaori, he will be Ranma's father. Akane's father asks Genma what this is all about. Ranma is shocked to find out that he was traded for only one piece of fish and rice. Akane's father tells this stranger that Ranma is already going to marry Akane. Kaori says that she wants to challenge Akane to see who marries Ranma. They chose the "demae kakutou race". The commercial break anime sequence is funny. [the music isn't as good as before.] They use SD characters of Akane and Ranma. There is also a short sequence to break in from a commercial. Akane says to Ranma, "I'm not in this race for you!" Kaori shows up at the starting line and displays some of her skills. Kaori's father says that she is a master of the demae kakutou technique.

Ranma says to Akane, "I helped you for the one year supply of ramen. Don't misunderstand me." At the end, another stranger shows up at the Tendo home. The guy also hugs Ranma and tells him to call him father. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 2 title: Yappari Nekoga Kirai? ending song: Don't mind lay-lay boy (Nishio Etsuko) aired: 89.11.03 I still can't get used to the new ending song. It's worse than "Equal Romance". Also, there is no opening song. They should have kept the old one. It was a good song. There was no preview of next week. Maybe there won't be any Ranma for a couple weeks because of the World Cup Volleyball. I have to wait until Friday.. ***** SPOILERS ***** Kunou is practicing his skill with his wooden sword. He is beating up a Ranma doll. His ninja Sasuke is introduced. [this is stupid] Ranma is chasing his father around. This is training. Ranma has a weighted metal ball and chain around his leg.

Akane tries to pull Ranma out of the room, but she opens a door and a big tiger was waiting for them. Finally it is too much and Ranma turns into a cat. Ranma and the tiger faces off. Ranma chases all the cats and the tiger out. Ranma runs outside and climbs up a tree. He is licking himself like a cat. Ranma's father comes to help and dresses up like an old lady. It doesn't work. Akane shoots a bag full of catnip and Ranma comes down from the tree. Then he jumps at Akane and lands in her lap. Akane gets mad and tells Ranma to get off. Ranma is still a cat, and kisses Akane.

Ranma was trying to come up with a way to apologize to Akane about the bath incident. Akane says that she doesn't care, but still pours water on Ranma and then kicks her. Then, Shampoo's great grandma comes and attacks Ranma-chan. Shampoo brings ramen for the entire Tendo family, saying that they moved into the neighborhood and opened a new ramen store. Shampoo's great grandma also appears and says that Ranma should marry Shampoo. She says that she is 350 years old (I think the manga says something different). Akane's father says that Ranma's already engaged to Akane. Ranma says that he doesn't want to marry either.

During gym class, Shampoo rides her bike through the wall and shows off her nannichuan mix. The nannichuan mix will turn ordinary water into the special nannichuan spring water, which will turn everything that drowns in it into a man. Shampoo uses a dog to demonstrate. Shampoo says that she will give Ranma the mix if he goes on a date with her, today at 2 pm in the park. Akane gets mad because today is the day when the doujou yaburi is supposed to come. On the way home from school, Ranma goes to meet Shampoo. Akane says that she can do it by herself. She tells her father not to help her out. During the date with Shampoo, Ranma tries to get the nannichuan mix. He keeps tricking Shampoo, but Shampoo always gives him the fake bag.

Then Shampoo comes in and says let's continue the date. Let's kiss again. Ranma says that he never kissed her, but Shampoo says that Ranma kissed her, and gives Ranma the nannichuan mix. Ranma and Ranma's father use the mix and turn back into men. They jump into the pond in the Tendo yard, but they don't turn into a girl and a panda. They stay in the pond as the Tendo's eat dinner.

He tells Moose to keep trying and to defeat anything that is in his way. Then Moose regains his spirit and starts to beat up Ranma, because Ranma is in the way between him and Shampoo. Then as Akane breaks free of the rope, Shampoo tries to pour the spring water on her. Shampoo says that she feels sorry for Moose and that she will introduce a new girlfriend to him. Ranma saves Akane from the water, and then Moose starts to shoot water on them with the hose. The water makes a direct hit on Akane, and the force of the water sends Akane out of the tent. Ranma goes looking for Akane and finds a little white duck. Ranma thinks that Akane had turned into the duck. Ranma cries and says that he will turn her back and takes the duck home with him. At home, Ranma sneaks to the bathroom and puts the duck in the bathtub. But, it doesn't turn back into Akane. It just stays a duck! At the Chinese festival, Akane comes out from under some covers. The water that hit Akane was not the spring water. Moose and Shampoo find Akane. Akane dumps the last bucket of the spring water on Moose.

So, they prepare for Ranma and Akane's (the duck) wedding. Just as the wedding is about to begin, Akane comes home. She hits Ranma. Akane sets up a fight between Ranma and Moose. Shampoo says that if Moose wins, she'll go out with him. Akane tells Ranma to lose on purpose so that he doesn't have to marry Shampoo. As the fight begins, Shampoo gives Moose as special weapon. It backfires on Moose. During the fight, Shampoo keeps giving Moose weapons, but all of them backfire. Shampoo doesn't want Moose to win. There is a final explosion and it looks like Moose had lost. But he struggles to fight again. Ranma starts to feel sorry for Moose. He then asks Moose if how he would feel if Ranma lost on purpose. Moose says he would like it. He doesn't care how, as long as he can have Shampoo. So they start to fight again. But Ranma wins again. Moose tries to get up, but he passes out.

By the time Ranma got to the open lot, the fight was already over. Akane was looking over Ranma's father, who was beaten and down on the ground. After Ranma's father recovers, he tells Ranma to stay away from Ukyou for his own good. Even when Ranma asked, Genma wouldn't tell him what this was about. Akane, who had seen the whole thing, told Ranma that Ukyou might be Genma's child. When Ranma and Akane ask Genma about it, he says no, but doesn't say anything else. Then the panda starts to cry. The next day, there was a new student in Ranma and Akane's class. It was Ukyou. Ukyou made okonomiyaki for everyone. After Ranma tastes the okonomiyaki, he remembers Ucchan.

Ryouga to Akane opening song: Omoidega Ippai (CoCo) ending song: Lambada Ranma aired: 90.04.27 This episode had a new opening and closing song! The new opening song is "Omoidega Ippai" by CoCo. The song itself is not bad, not good. A typical J-pop song. The opening animation is pretty good. But I like the previous one with Ribbon's song better. Then after the commercial, they have a short intro animation sequence. It has Happosai jumping out of a manga, the panda, Akane's family, and Ranma and Ranma-chan. This is much better than the one they previously did with Ranma getting splashed at the end. The new song at the end is pretty silly song with all of the major characters' voices. The voice of Ukyou is done by Tsuru Hiromi (Ayukawa Madoka). * * * * * * * * * * S P O I L E R S * * * * * * * * * * Ryouga came back to the city from his long journeys and happened to hear a couple of the high school girls gossiping about Ranma and his two fiancees.

Akane tells Ryouga to stop because Ukyou is a girl. Ryouga takes a close look at Ukyou, but still thinks she's a boy. Then Ranma shows Ryouga Ukyou's breasts just as Ryouga was going to hit her. Ryouga stops, and Ranma pounds Ryouga. Then Ukyou hits Ranma for showing Ryouga her breasts. Ukyou learns that Ryouga likes Akane, so Ukyou plans to set up a date for them. She writes a love letter on an okonomiyaki and sends it to Akane. It says, "To Tendo Akane, I'll be waiting for you at the okonomiyaki store Ucchan at 2 PM today. Ryouga." But, Ranma steps on the part that says "Ryouga", so Akane thinks that it is a letter of challenge from Ukyou. Akane goes to the okonomiyaki store expecting to fight, but learns that a date with Ryouga had been set up. When Ukyou tries to leave so that Akane and Ryouga will be alone, Ryouga begs her to stay. Ukyou tells him that he should act like a man and go for it. Then Ryouga faces Akane and tries to tell her that he likes her. But, at that moment, a girl with long hair and glasses comes and hits Ryouga. Then this girl says that she is Ryouga's fiancee. (Actually, it is Ranma-chan in disguise.) Ryouga is all confused now and doesn't know what to do. Ukyou hits him and says to ignore this new girl and go for Akane. Ryouga then gets the courage to tell Akane that he likes her, but Ranma-chan starts to throw cold water at Ryouga. Ryouga runs out of the store with Ranma-chan following him. Then they run to a park and hide from Ukyou and Akane. Ranma-chan tells Ryouga that she knows about him turning into P-chan. Ryouga is surprised, and happy that this girl knows the secret and still likes him. He thinks that there will be no other girl that would like him knowing his secret. So he starts to hold this girl. Ranma-chan finally beats up Ryouga. Akane hears all the noise and comes. She pours hot water on Ranma-chan and kicks him away. Later, Akane asks Ryouga out on a date. Ukyou also asks Ranma on a date. Ryouga and Akane go to a park and are in a row boat. Ranma and Ukyou follow them around on a boat. Akane gets mad at Ranma for bothering them. Akane and Ryouga hit Ranma and Ranma falls into the lake. Ranma-chan dresses up as Ryouga's fiancee and comes out of the water. Ranma-chan goes to Ryouga and starts hitting him. She says that she's the only one for him. Then, Ukyou gets mad at this girl who is in the way, and takes a swipe at her with her large spatula. She hits Ranma-chan's wig and knocks it off. When Ryouga finds out who his "fiancee" really is, he gets mad and starts fighting Ranma. Ryouga goes to kick Ranma-chan, but misses. Then, just as Ryouga is about to fall into the lake, he steps on Ranma-chan and bounces back to the shore. Then he says good bye to Akane and runs away. As Ryouga was running away, he runs into a water sprinkler and turns into P-chan. Akane, Ranma, and Ukyou were running after Ryouga. They find P-chan. When P-chan sees Akane, he turns to run away, but Akane says come, and P-chan jumps to Akane. At home, Ukyou keeps pouring hot and cold water on Ranma because it is so fun.

Then Shampoo appears and offers her nikuman for Ranma's lunch. But Ranma doesn't like nikuman that much. Shampoo forces Ranma to eat them anyways. Then Shampoo claps her hands and tells Ranma to hug her. But Ranma doesn't. Just before Shampoo clapped her hands, a cat nearby had sneezed. The cat sneezed again. This time, Ranma hugged the cat and also screamed. Shampoo noticed that her clap doesn't work so she gets some pepper to make herself sneeze. Then Ranma hugs her.

Then Shampoo appears with some shuumai. Shampoo tries to give the shuumai to Ranma, but Ranma doesn't want it. Akane sneezes again and Ranma hugs her. This time Akane beats up Ranma. Then Ranma says, "I didn't hug you because I like you." Akane gets mad and goes to her room. Shampoo runs around trying to give the shuumai to Ranma. They run into Akane's room. When Ranma doesn't eat it, Shampoo says she'll give it to Akane. Then Ranma grabs Akane and tries to run away. Shampoo chases them. When Ranma gets tired of running, he pretends like he is going to eat the shuumai. He takes the shuumai away from Shampoo and throws one in her mouth. Then Ranma snaps his finger and tells Shampoo to go home. Shampoo happily goes home. Then Akane sneezes. She prepares for Ranma, but Ranma's body doesn't do anything.

Ranma sees the panda and the other animals locked up inside cages. Ranma gets the keys and releases them. Meanwhile the other guardian gets some hot water and pours it on the little priest. The hot water makes the little priest turn back into the big killer with the sword. He goes after the panda, who was trying to escape, and captures it. He also traps Ranma and the other animals inside the cave. The guardians tie up Ranma's father and give him special training to get rid of his power. They keep dumping him into the cold river, pulling him out, pouring hot water on him, and dumping him in the cold river again. Then the killer guardian comes to get Ranma. Ranma distracts him while the other animals escape. The killer then says that Ranma better cooperate or else the panda will die. The guardians tie up Ranma and give him the same special training. Shampoo (cat), P-chan, and Moose (duck) attack the guardians while they were giving the training to Ranma and Genma. Ranma uses the opportunity to get away, and he frees his father.

He gets close enough to hold on to him, and grabs on forcing them both to fall into the river below. The killer turns into the little priest and Ranma's father starts to pull them up with a rope. When the little priest comes up and sees all the damage to the trees and rocks, he starts crying and throws the big sword into the river.

Ryouga says that his mind is already made up. Then Moose makes up a story, saying that Akane probably will get rid of P-chan after she marries Ranma and has kids. Ryouga gets mad at this and he decides not to turn into P-chan. The next day, Akane was worried because P-chan didn't come home the previous night. She goes out to look for him. Ranma also goes looking for Ryouga. Ranma spots a little black pig near a park. Ranma catches it and starts talking to it, but then Ryouga appears. Moose also appears and pours cold water on Ranma. Then Moose says that Ryouga and he will team up to fight Ranma. They begin to fight. During the fight, Moose straps a weighted ball time bomb on Ranma-chan's legs. When Moose and Ryouga try to escape, Ranma-chan catches them and pulls them to her. Ranma-chan then forces Moose to get the key to unlock them. They break free with not much time left, and they all start to run away. Then Akane appears by the bomb looking for P-chan. Moose keeps running away but Ranma-chan and Ryouga run back to Akane. Ranma-chan tells Akane to hurry up and run away, but she doesn't believe his story about the bomb. They argue until there's only a couple seconds left. Ranma-chan keeps calling Akane names and Akane gets mad. She kicks the bomb and it explodes far in the distance. Later, Ryouga tells Ranma that he will not be Ryouga any more. Then Ryouga jumps into the lake and turns himself into P-chan. Akane comes by and picks up P-chan. She says that she will take him to the hot bath with her. P-chan gets embarrassed and runs away. Ranma goes after him and tries to beat him up. Shampoo on a bicycle making a delivery sees Moose as the duck all beaten up. (The bomb had landed on Moose.) Shampoo just ignores him and goes on.

Then Shampoo and her great-grandma appear with some new ramen that they want Ranma to try. Happosai tries to sell them some of his junk. Shampoo looks through and picks up an old mirror. Happosai says that Shampoo can't have it and says that it is a memory of his love in his youth. Happosai tells them his story that he fell in love with a beautiful girl while he was training in China and he received the mirror from her when he had to leave. Shampoo's great-grandma tells them her story that there was a guy who came into her village and ran off with a lot of goods, including her mirror. Then Shampoo's great-grandma attacks Happosai to try to get her mirror back. Happosai jumps out of the way and then says it can't be. Then Happosai calls Shampoo's great-grandma Cologne, and Shampoo's great-grandma calls Happosai Happy. Shampoo tells everyone that Cologne is her great-grandma's real name. Happosai then says that Happy was the name that he used in his youth. When one of Happosai's tears falls on the mirror, they travel through time and end up in the past in China. The mirror has the strength to transport people into the time that they were currently thinking about, when tears fall on it. They all see Happy trying to pick up the girls of the village. But the girls beat him up. When Shampoo's great-grandma takes them to her village, she points out a beautiful, tall young girl and says that it is her. They don't believe it, but Shampoo's great-grandma calls out Cologne, and the young girl answers. They all go to Cologne's house, and are treated to dinner. When Happy comes through the window and tries to pick up Cologne, Cologne throws tea on him. Then Happy runs away when Soun and Genma tries to fight him. Cologne looks out the window after him. Akane notices that Cologne likes Happy. Later, Akane and Shampoo spy on Cologne and see her bringing some food to Happy. Akane and Shampoo send letters to Happy and Cologne and set up a date near the lake. But Cologne says that she won't go and that she doesn't like Happy. When Happy and Ranma start fighting, Cologne hits Ranma to help Happy. Then Happy and Cologne run toward each other. But just before they embrace, Happy jumps over Cologne and goes for another girl. The other girl kicks Happy back to Cologne. But Cologne is mad. Happy runs away from this village with a bag load full of stuff, including the mirror. Happosai and Shampoo's great-grandma is fighting over the mirror after they get back to the present. Then Ranma joins the fight when Soun tells him that there probably was a Jusenkyou back in China. Just when Shampoo's great-grandma drops the mirror, Nabiki comes and steps on it, breaking it. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 38 title: Kurobarano Kodachi!

But they only have rice and takuwan. The amount of food has been going down everyday because their doujou hasn't been making any money. This was the last day that they have any rice. Sasuke had been spying on the Tendo home. He goes back to Kodachi and tells her about the food shortage situation at the Tendo home. While Genma and Soun were playing shogi, a traditional Japanese wedding parade comes through the Tendo's front gate. Then Kodachi, dressed in an all white wedding kimono, comes out and greets Genma by saying father. She also presents a lot of money. After school, Ranma was passing out advertisement flyers for the Tendo doujou. Akane sees Ranma and joins him. But nobody is interested. Akane tells Ranma to turn into a girl and dress up like a playboy bunny. Then a lot of guys gather around. Akane tells them that they will be doing the registration the next day the the Tendo doujou. When Akane and Ranma come home, they are greeted by Kodachi, who calls herself Saotome Kodachi. Then Kodachi cooks a feast for the Tendo family. Everyone starts eating except Akane. She gets mad and runs out of the dining room. The next morning, Ranma and Kodachi fight as Kodachi tried to hang Ranma's futon. Akane passes by and sees them together. Akane gets mad again. Kodachi runs away crying after she learns that the Tendo doujou won't be Ranma's until he marries Akane. Ranma-chan, Akane, Genma, and Soun wait outside of the Tendo doujou for the registration. After a while, a lot of guys come to sign up. Just then, a truck with a lot of girls dressed in aerobic exercise suits comes by to advertise Kodachi's doujou. All of the guys cancel with the Tendo doujou and follow the truck. Ranma and Akane run after the truck also. They get to Kodachi's doujou and are surprised that everyone is doing aerobics instead of martial arts. Kodachi says that this is Ranma's doujou also because whatever belongs to the wife also belongs to the husband. But Soun gets mad and says that Ranma will marry Akane and take over the Tendo doujou. Then Ranma tells everyone that he doesn't want any doujou. The next day, Kasumi calls everyone for breakfast. They only have tea. Kasumi says that this is the last of the tea. Then a black rose comes flying through the window. It has a letter from Kodachi attached to it. It asks Ranma what he wants. Nabiki, Happosai, Soun, Genma, and Kasumi all start yelling out what they want. Ranma gets mad and yells at them.

Akane's friends urge Akane to have her fortune told. Miyo says that Akane will marry Ranma within one week. Akane is shocked. Meanwhile Ranma was chasing Happosai around. They run over Miyo's fortune telling cards. Then Miyo tells Akane that something bad will happen to Happosai and that she should be careful not to get caught in it. When Ranma and Akane get home, they see Happosai on the roof of the Tendo home. He looks very sick and his precious panty collection was all over the place. Then Happosai says he is tired and goes to rest in his bed. Then Ranma's father pours cold water on Ranma and throws Ranma-chan in Happosai's room. Instead of attacking Ranma-chan, Happosai tells Ranma-chan that she will catch cold if she doesn't cover herself. Genma and Soun decide that Ranma and Akane should get married while Happosai is still alive. They say that the wedding will take place within the week. While Ryouga was walking toward the Tendo home with a lot of presents for Akane, he feels that something if wrong. Then it starts raining on him. P-chan arrives and goes to Akane's window. Akane lets him in and they sleep together. Ranma has a nightmare. He dreams that Akane and his baby was born, and it looks just like Happosai. Then Ranma goes to the doujou because he can't sleep. Akane was already there because she couldn't sleep either. Then P-chan comes and starts attacking Ranma. The next day, Genma and Soun both get sick because they were worn out after taking care of Happosai all night. Akane goes over to her friend Miyo's house to try to get something to help out her family. Miyo says that there is only one thing that can help. She gives Akane a recipe for a special medicine, along with all of the strange ingredients. When Akane gets home, she locks herself into the kitchen and starts making the medicine. By the end of the week, everyone in the Tendo family gets sick. Akane is the only one left standing. When she finished making the medicine, she gives it to Happosai. Happosai drinks it, and then passes out. Akane thinks that he died and starts crying. After a while Happosai gets up and says that he feels like he was re-born. Then Akane forces everyone else to drink her medicine. The next day, Akane goes to school, and Happosai is back to his old self, trying to pick up all of the girls. Ranma stays home because he has a stomach ache.

Suddenly two Chinese girls attack her. It was two of her "sister" villagers from the Joketsuzoku, Linlin and Ranran. They said that they had trained very hard after they saw Shampoo beaten by Ranma. When they asked Shampoo how she beat up Ranma, Shampoo said that she will tell them later. Ranma-chan acts very cute so she can get an extra tako yaki. Akane yells at her, saying that she should stay a girl forever. Then Shampoo comes and pours hot water on Ranma-chan. She says that Ranma has to stay a boy or else his life is in danger. Linlin an Ranran go around all over trying to find someone strong to fight. They beat up Kunou and all the guys at the high school. They eventually go to the Tendo doujou. There they see the panda. They remember that the panda was with Ranma when they went to the Joketsuzoku village. They get the story out of Soun and Genma. When Ranma, Akane, and Shampoo come home, Linlin and Ranran were waiting for them. Genma pours cold water on Ranma. Linlin and Ranran start to fight Ranma-chan, but Shampoo gets in the way and stops them. Then Shampoo gives Linlin and Ranran the kiss of death. While Ranma-chan and Akane were discussing Shampoo's problem, Shampoo's great-grandma comes and tells them that Shampoo is in danger because Linlin and Ranran have mastered the most powerful fire breathing dragon technique, and Shampoo hasn't been training recently. Shampoo was fighting against Linlin and Ranran in the park. Shampoo was defeating them, but Linlin and Ranran use the fire breathing dragon technique as a last resort. Ranma-chan hears Shampoo's scream and runs to her. Shampoo tells Ranma-chan to escape, just as Linlin and Ranran pop out to face Ranma-chan. They start to fight. Ranma-chan easily beats them, but Linlin and Ranran use the fire breathing dragon technique, just as Akane runs to the scene. The fire breathing dragon technique turns out to be the music to "Jajaumani Sasenaide" and a mechanical fire breathing dragon costume. The music apparently forces the opponent to dance around uncontrollably, disabling their defenses. Then the dragon fries the opponents. Ranma-chan and Akane fight against Linlin and Ranran. Ranma-chan makes Akane get on her back and cover her ears, so that she can fight without hearing the music. Ranma-chan then uses the tenshin amaguriken to destroy the fire breathing dragon and the cassette player which was playing the music. Just as the dragon was going to explode, Shampoo runs into the smoke to save Linlin and Ranran.

When Akane says to her that she should stay this way if she likes it so much, Ranma-chan says, maybe it's a good idea. Then one of the waiters gives Ranma-chan another parfait. On the way home, some guy tries to pick up Ranma-chan. Akane gets mad after seeing this. At home during dinner, Ranma was talking about the advantages of being a girl. Genma pours cold water on Ranma and says that he can turn into a girl any time so that she can get guys to treat her. Then Nabiki says that recently Ranma-chan's body suits her better. Ranma-chan jokes saying that she should turn into a girl. Then Akane yells at Ranma-chan. At night, Happosai sneaks into Ranma's room and starts some special process to split Ranma into a boy and a girl. Happosai says that this technique only works when Ranma actually wishes to become a girl. After the split occurs, Happosai tries to have Ranma-chan wear his bra. But she just laughs and disappears. At 1:30 AM, Ranma hears a girl's voice calling for him. He wakes up to see his girl-self. She hypnotizes Ranma and takes him away. The next day, Akane goes to wake up Ranma. She sees Ranma looking very tired and all dirty. At school, Akane asks Ranma what happened an night, but Ranma just says, "She's cute." When Akane asks who, Ranma answers, "It's a secret." That night Akane hears some noise in Ranma's room. When she goes up to investigate, she sees Ranma going outside with some girl. Akane wakes up Genma and they chase after Ranma. Shampoo and Shampoo's great-grandmother also chase after Ranma. They arrive at a cemetery and see Ranma sitting up in a tree with Ranma-chan. When Ranma-chan notices them, she goes to attack them, but she fades just as she sees the sun coming up. Shampoo's great-grandmother tells everyone that the only way to prevent the evil Ranma-chan from turning Ranma into a bad person is to prevent them from seeing each other. That night, they stick a lot of anti-ghost scriptures all around Ranma's room to prevent Ranma-chan from coming close. When Ranma-chan comes to the Tendo home, she can't enter because of the scriptures. But she cons Happosai into taking them all down. She enters Ranma's room and takes Ranma away. At the cemetery, Ranma and Ranma-chan sit together in the tree. When Ranma-chan spots everyone looking at them, she uses her special powers to beat them up. But Shampoo turns into a cat and jumps on Ranma. Ranma-chan sees the cat and runs away. Ranma sees the cat and faints. Ranma-chan attacks everyone again after Shampoo turns back into herself. Akane finally defeats Ranma-chan by throwing the scriptures at her. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 42 title: Toujou!

Hidden in the bushes, someone was taking pictures of them. At school, Ranma and Kunou started fighting. Again, someone was taking pictures of them in hiding. When Ranma started fighting with Happosai, someone was taking pictures again. This time, Ranma noticed it. When Ranma and Akane were walking home from school, Ranma told Akane about the pictures somebody was taking of him. Then the guy taking the pictures appeared. When Ranma went to get the film, the guy escaped, saying that he will return to beat up Ranma. When Ranma told everyone about the pictures at home, Genma and Soun said that it was Manekko Kenchan. He was a master of copying appearances and fighting techniques. They said that Ranma should be careful. Ranma didn't take this warning seriously. When Ranma went out to by some juice from a vending machine, Ryouga threw his umbrella at Ranma. Ranma gets mad and starts to fight. Then Ranma notices that there is something wrong with Ryouga. Ranma finally sees Ryouga lying in a garbage can, all beaten up. The Ryouga that Ranma had been fighting was actually Manekko Kenchan. Then Kenchan turned himself into Ranma and started to fight against the real Ranma. When Akane came by, she saw them fighting, but couldn't distinguish the real Ranma from Kenchan. Kenchan uses the tenshin amaguriken to defeat Ranma. Genma tells Ranma that he lost to himself, not Kenchan. Then Ranma goes to the mountains to train. While he was training, Ryouga, Kunou, and Moose come to train with Ranma. But, they all ended up fighting each other. The next day at school, Happosai was running around stealing panties again. Then another Happosai appeared. It was Manekko Kenchan again. Happosai and Kenchan started fighting. But the real Happosai wins as Kenchan could not completely copy Happosai. So Kenchan begged Happosai to teach him. Happosai takes Kenchan as his student. When they get home, they terrorize the Tendo girls. When Ranma returns home, Kenchan was waiting for him. They fight. Kenchan turns himself into Ryouga, Moose, Kunou, Happosai, and even Ranma-chan to fight Ranma. Finally Ranma-chan defeats Kenchan with the real tenshin amaguriken. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 43 title: Ryouga no taishitsu kaizen sekken! opening song: Omoidega Ippai (CoCo) ending song: Present (Tokyo Shounen) aired: 90.09.07 Synopsis by Robert DeLoura with additions & corrections by Mark Crispin * * * * * * * * * * S P O I L E R S * * * * * * * * * * Ryouga is standing where he can overlook the town, and is daydreaming about Akane. [episode title shown] Ryouga is shown finishing up a letter a letter he's written in a restaurant. (The background music is "Present", the closing theme to the episode.) He finishes the letter, walks out, holds the letter (sealed with a red heart) up in the air and yells "I wrote it!". It promptly starts raining. (oink oink) Ranma and Genma are in the local sento (public bath). P-chan shows up with the love letter in his mouth. He's being pursued by a couple of kids with squirtguns. Ranma slides a bar of soap in front of P-chan, who slips on it, drops the letter, and falls in the hot bath. Ranma catches the letter, and reads "Tendou Akane-sama" on the front of it. Ryouga says "That's mine!", and punches Ranma. Ranma gets the letter back again, and starts trying to read it aloud. Akane is on the girls' side of the sento, scrubbing herself. Shampoo-cat wanders in and splashes hot water on herself. Shampoo shows Akane a cake of blue-colored soap. She's very happy about it, because she thinks Ranma "won't hate her" anymore if she doesn't go around turning into a cat all the time. (The soap is supposed to prevent the person who uses it from transforming when they get splashed with cold water.) Shampoo brags to Akane that from today on Ranma will be hers (Shampoo). She asks Akane if Akane knows this soap. The soap prevents transformation. With this soap, she will no longer turn into a cat, and Ranma will no longer turn into a girl (and Ranma will have to do whatever Shampoo wants to get to use it). Akane asks to see it; Shampoo refuses, saying it's her "life", and it squirts out of her hands. Ranma is on the guys' side of the sento, teasing Ryouga with the love letter. Ranma slips on Shampoo's bar of soap. Ryouga picks up the bar of soap. Shampoo turns herself into Shampoo-cat so she can go over to the guys' side to look for the soap. Ranma is running around frantically, with Shampoo-cat on his head. He knocks Ryouga (who is washing with the special soap) into the wall, accidentally. Genma, watching this, picks up the love letter as it slides across the floor towards him. Later, back in the Tendou household, Akane says "A letter for me?". Genma explains that it fell while he was at the sento, and hands it to her. She sees the "heart" being used to seal the letter, and wonders who it's from. Ranma grabs it, opens it, and starts reading aloud, "Akane-san, I . . . ." Ryouga hits him on the head and says "Don't read that!". Akane says "Ryouga wrote the letter?". Ryouga says "gimme", and fights with Ranma over it. Ranma knocks Ryouga out into the yard, and Ryouga is falling towards the pool. Ranma kneels on a rock, and catches Ryouga by his head to keep him from falling in and changing in front of Akane. Unfortunately, the rock tips over, and dumps both of them into the pool. (!) But when their heads break the surface, it turns out to be Ranma-chan and Ryouga. Ryouga didn't change into P-chan! Ranma-chan is understandably puzzled. Ryouga thinks he's dreaming, but realizes that he isn't -- he's wet, but hasn't changed into P-chan. Ryouga tells Akane, "Read the letter, I wrote my feelings on it." While Ranma-chan is still trying to figure out why Ryouga didn't change, Akane tries to read the letter. The letter is soaking wet, though, and she can't make out a single character. Shampoo is shown watching these developments from the wall around the Tendou household. She realizes that Ryouga must have her special soap. Ryouga has some flowers, and is waiting for Akane (apparently the letter must have told her to meet him here). He's so happy about things that he breaks the adjacent wall into rubble. Ranma splashes Ryouga with a bucket of water, saying "You really don't change into a piglet?" Ranma then starts acting unusually friendly towards Ryouga, trying to find out how he kept himself from changing. (he even calls Ryouga "Ryouga-chan") Ryouga doesn't fall for the act. He knocks Ranma into the air, and yells, "Akane-san! Hurry, hurry, hurry! Akane-san!". Akane turns out to be standing right next to him, and he gets rather embarrassed. Akane asks him what he wrote in the letter, since she couldn't read it. He starts to try and explain it, but gets too embarrassed, and runs off. And Akane still has no idea of what Ryouga wants!!! Shampoo is on a rooftop, explaining the special soap to Ranma. She gives him an envelope and a bow and arrow. An arrow shoots by Ryouga. He grabs it. It has an envelope just like the one he used. It's from Akane (actually from Shampoo and Ranma). He opens it up, and it has a pair of tickets to an onsen in it. Ryouga is supposed to wait at the men's bath. Shampoo and Ranma-chan appear as female bath attendants. He manages to find his way to the place the tickets were for, then goes to a bath to wait for Akane. Shampoo and Ranma-chan show up, surprising him. [commercial break] Ranma-chan is rubbing Ryouga's back. She notices a bar of blue soap in the bucket on Ryouga's head, and pounds him. Then she takes the soap. Shampoo trips Ranma-chan with a bar of normal soap, and gets the blue soap from Ranma-chan. The two girls argue over the soap, and Ryouga, listening to their conversation, realizes that the soap is what kept him from changing into a piglet when he fell in the pool. Ranma-chan and Shampoo fall into a bath of cold water, and Ranma-chan splashes around frantically with Shampoo-cat sitting on her head. Akane and her friends are by a pool. (It is coincidence that Akane decided to go to this onsen too!) Ranma-chan runs by with Shampoo-cat on her head, and jumps into the hot water (in more ways than one). Akane bonks him on the head with a bucket, because now he has a nude Shampoo clinging to him, instead. He's surprised, wasn't aware Akane was around. Ranma: "What are you doing here?" Akane: "What about you?" Ranma steals a bar of blue soap from Ryouga by hitting him on the head with a large piece of statuary, and washes with it. But, when Ranma pours cold water on his head, he turns into Ranma-chan anyway (it was the wrong soap). The surrounding people find this transformation quite . . . interesting. Ryouga shows up, tossing the real soap into the air and catching it, teasing Ranma-chan. Ryouga gets another letter from "Akane", asking about a date. Shampoo explains to Ranma that if Ryouga goes on a date, he'll have to leave the soap somewhere. Akane gets a fake letter too, but doesn't know who it's from. She's waiting for whoever wrote it to show up. When Ryouga shows up and mentions the date, Akane re-reads the letter, and realizes it's a fake written by Shampoo. Then, a mechanical squid rolls up, jumps into the air, and squirts black ink into Ryouga's face. Shampoo and Ranma-chan show up to carry Ryouga to the nearby pool so he can wash his face off. The ink won't come off without soap, apparently, so he starts to use the special soap. Shampoo and Ranma-chan pound Ryouga in an effort to get the soap, but Ryouga gets it back. Then, Ryouga hears a voice from Akane's direction, asking for a kiss. It's actually Shampoo, crouched down behind Akane. Akane notices Shampoo, and kicks her into the air. Ranma-chan then pounds Ryouga in the head with a piece of concrete, so Ryouga never notices that it was really Shampoo saying it. While Ryouga's flat on his back, Ranma-chan feels around on him, looking for the soap. Akane knocks Ranma-chan out of the way, and asks Ryouga if he's OK. Ranma-chan complains that Akane's in the way. Akane is irritated about Ranma-chan interrupting the date with "her Ryouga-kun". Shampoo returns, and yells something into Akane's ear with the aid of a megaphone. Ranma-chan complains about Akane being faithless. Akane then drags Ryouga away, up a flight of stairs (ouch). Ryouga wakes up at the cafeteria., with Akane looking over him. Ryouga asks if they're on a date, and Akane agrees. Ryouga's very happy, and asks Akane where she wants to go. She has no suggestions, so he looks in a guidebook and decides that he should take her to a "romantic movie". So they head off in search of a movie theater. He gets lost, and they end up at what looks like a haunted house shaped like a whale. Shampoo and Ranma show up. Ranma uses a spinning door to separate Ryouga and Akane. Ranma scolds Akane for her behavior. Shampoo pretends to be Akane, and grabs Ryouga from behind. This dazes Ryouga, and Shampoo feels around on him, looking for the soap. (That probably dazes him even more.) This gives Ryouga quite the wrong impression about Akane, since he doesn't realize it's really Shampoo doing it. Ranma explains the soap to Akane. She doesn't believe Ranma and flattens Ranma with the nearby door. Shampoo and Ranma watch Akane and Ryouga leave the haunted house. Ryouga says something about his feelings towards Akane. Akane looks startled. He continues talking. She asks what he's talking about. He says it's OK, and sweeps her off her feet. (boy is *she* surprised) Ranma and Shampoo run towards them, and Shampoo seems rather happy about the prospect of Akane and Ryouga getting involved with each other (would leave Ranma for her). Ryouga kicks the soap at Ranma, who gets it caught in his throat. Ryouga carries Akane off, while Shampoo beats on Ranma's back in an effort to make him cough up the soap. Ryouga takes Akane to the top of a bunch of logs. He keeps trying to hug her, but only succeeds in breaking off the tops of the logs. Akane is very confused at his behavior. Ryouga corners her against the remaining log, which breaks, dropping the two of them towards a pool. Ranma shows up and kicks Ryouga out of the way. He catches Akane and carries her to the edge of the pool. Ranma calls Ryouga a "foolish boy" and Akane knees him in the head. Akane bitches Ranma out. Ryouga stands up in the water, and knocks Ranma into the air. Akane is *not* thrilled to see Ryouga again. Ryouga says something about hugging Akane. She panics, and starts running. Ryouga follows her, breaking pieces of log along the way. He slams into a concrete wall, not watching where he's going. Ranma and Akane are running away, arguing. He is making fun of her that her foolishness put her into this predicament. Ryouga is by a waterfall, confused at Akane's sudden "change" of behavior. He punches the waterfall, and hears a female scream. He sees Akane (actually Ranma-chan dressed up in Akane's clothes) behind the waterfall. Ranma-chan asks Ryouga to hug her *gently* . Ryouga thinks about the times Akane has hugged him as P-chan. He takes Ranma-chan's hand, draws her out of the waterfall, and hugs her, crying with his happiness. Akane is sitting down, wearing Ranma's clothes. Some of her friends are there. Ryouga is squashing Ranma-chan with the intensity of his hug. He realizes that it's actually Ranma-chan, and not Akane. The bar of soap lands on Ranma-chan's head. Ranma-chan grabs it and starts to run off. Ryouga is *pissed*, and starts to take a swing at Ranma-chan. Just at that moment, the soap wears off, and Ryouga's wet clothes cause him to collapse in a pile of bubbles (as P-chan). Ranma-chan is disappointed that the soap wears off. Ranma-chan and Shampoo are standing next to Akane, who is holding P-chan in her lap. Shampoo is disappointed about the soap. Apparently, this cheap, fake soap has only temporary effects against Juusenkyou transformations. Akane comments on Ryouga's sudden strange behavior (romantic advances).

In the first round, they have to choose a door to enter, where they have to find the exit while not being beaten up. Shampoo and Moose go into a room with a huge horse which tries to shake people off of its back. Shampoo and Moose find the exit. Happosai, the panda, and Soun go into a room where they had to run to the exit avoiding the large clubs. Soun gets smashed and doesn't make it. Happosai and the panda make it, but at the exit, two girls in bunny suits trick them and hit them. Ranma, Ryouga, Akane, Kunou, and Kodachi fall into a room with a strange island with dinosaurs. Kunou and Kodachi fight over Ranma-chan and Ranma. Ranma, Ryouga, and Akane find the exit. So, Ranma, Ryouga, Akane, Shampoo, and Moose make it to the second round. In the second round, they have to fight through the jungle to the goal. But, before they start, Kunou, Kodachi, Happosai, Soun, and the panda join them as they also earned a second chance. They had to pair up with handcuffs and swing on the vines through the jungle. Ranma ended up with Ryouga. Akane went with her father. Shampoo ended up with Moose. But, Shampoo dunked Moose into the water and got rid of him. They all make it to the third round. In the third round, they all run with paper balloons on top of their heads. They have to make it without having their balloons popped. Ranma turns himself into Ranma-chan and tricks Happosai to pop his balloon. Ryouga fights against Kunou, but Kunou accidently pops his own balloon with his sword. Soun and the panda both get their balloons popped by the announcer of the race, as they were plotting to help each other out. Akane, Kodachi, and Shampoo get in a circle, but can't attack because they each had to look out against two opponents. Since none of them initiated any fighting, they all get disqualified. So, only Ranma and Ryouga make it to the fourth and final round. In this round, they have to run through a desert to the goal. Ranma and Ryouga help each other out against a giant sand monster. After they defeat the monster, Ryouga tries to beat up Ranma. But, Ranma avoids him and starts running toward the goal. Ryouga crawls underground through the sand toward the goal.

As he gets close, he runs to the springs. He is shocked to see that all of them have dried up. He yells, and wakes up from his dream as his father hits him for screaming in his sleep. Then Ranma tells his father about the dream. He says that he will go to China and check on Jusenkyou. They don't have enough money, so they decide to steal Happosai's nanban mirror and use it to teleport to China. But, Happosai catches them and they all fight over the mirror. Happosai gets the mirror and wishes to go ten years into the future. There, they see Akane, Ryouga, and their three kids. They all can't wait to leave this future as soon as possible. (Ryouga's three kids fall into the pond and turn into P-chan's!) Ranma's tears fall on the nanban mirror and they all go to China. When they arrive, they see Ranma and Genma walking towards Jusenkyou. They arrived at the time and place just before Ranma and Genma fell into the springs. Happosai, the panda, and Ranma-chan try to stop Ranma and Genma from going to Jusenkyou, but they couldn't. Ranma and Genma arrive at Jusenkyou. They start to fight. Ranma hits Genma and Genma is about to fall into the spring. But, Happosai hits Genma away.

Ranma and Genma feel something is strange and they quit their training. So the "real" Ranma and Genma return to the present. Happosai gets left behind. In the present, Ranma and Genma run in the rain, but they don't turn into a girl or a panda. At the Tendo home, the Tendo girls and Soun were waiting for Ranma and Genma to come to their home.

The principal says that from now on, all of the students have to bow to the statue. While the students were arguing, Ranma jumps on top of the statue and destroys it. Later that day, the principal calls Kunou to his office. He asks Kunou to be his right hand man. Kunou accepts, thinking that he can get both Akane and Ranma-chan. So, Kunou and the kendo team go around bossing people around. They all fight against Ranma. Then, they all start fighting against each other as they all try to go out with Akane. When Happosai comes running with his daily bag load of girls panties, Ranma kicks him and stops him. Happosai cries, but still beats up Ranma. When the principal sees this, he is very happy and asks Happosai to become Kunou's coach so that he can train Kunou to beat up Ranma. Happosai says ok. But Kunou refuses and challenges Ranma to a match instead. That night, while Happosai was running around with his bag of panties, a bandaged up Kunou comes to him and tells Happosai that he will accept his training. Kunou had been beaten up by Ranma. The next morning, Happosai tells everyone that Kunou had asked him to teach him. He tells everyone that he's doing it because he wants Ranma to get stronger. In a doujou at school, Happosai says that Kunou needs speed in order to defeat Ranma. So Happosai shows Kunou a medicine that will give him speed. Kunou wants to buy it, but Happosai gives Kunou a map instead, saying that if he follows this map, he will get the ingredients of the medicine. So Kunou goes off on his journey. The first place that Kunou went was the girls dressing room at school. The second place was the girls public bath. In both of these cases, while Kunou was busy trying to beat off the girls that were attacking him and trying to get the envelope containing the ingredients, Happosai comes by and steals all the girls panties. The third job that Happosai gave to Kunou was to steal all of the panties from an apartment building. The next day, Kunou challenges Ranma to a match. Kunou tells Akane that he will go out with her after he defeats Ranma. They start fighting after school. Ranma takes Kunou too lightly and gets beaten. Kunou had picked up speed from trying to fight off the girls, and he had taken the medicine that Happosai had given him. Then Ranma-chan tries to trick Kunou to take the wooden sword away, thinking that there was something hidden inside the sword. But Kunou won't give it to her. So, after Ranma turns back into a boy, he runs away. Kunou chases Ranma. Then just as Ranma was going to attack Kunou, Kunou gets a stomach ache and falls over. The medicine that Happosai gave him was actually dirt from his fingernails. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 48 title: Ranma ga yowaku nacchatta! opening song: Zettai!

Ranma hits Kunou as usual, but Kunou doesn't get hurt. Ranma hits Kunou over and over again, but it has no effect. Then Kunou hits Ranma with his sword and Ranma falls over hurt. Then Ranma can't believe that he lost to Kunou and he throws a punch in the air. But it lands on a little boy who was riding a tricycle. Ranma and Akane both think that Ranma had killed the boy, but the boy says that it doesn't hurt at all and taps Ranma, knocking him over. Later Ranma and Akane go to Tofu-sensei to find out why Ranma had become so weak. Tofu-sensei finds out that someone had given the weakness cautery to Ranma. Tofu-sensei says that there is no known way to cure it. Happosai goes around passing letters to everyone saying that Ranma had become weak. Since there were so many people out to get back at Ranma, Akane ties him up and hides him in a shed during the day. But Ranma gets away. First the principal comes up and tries to cut Ranma's hair. Then Moose comes to beat up Ranma. Kunou also comes. Ranma gets too tired and was about to get beaten up, but Ryouga comes to save him. Ryouga says that he doesn't want to see someone weak get beat up. Then Ryouga cries because Ranma had become so weak.

Ranma grabs it, but Happosai takes the drawing back. Ranma uses the last of his energy to fight Happosai, but loses. Then Ranma-chan tries to lure Happosai, but she is too weak to fight him off.

Ukyou goes with them to cook for them. But nothing that Genma teaches helps Ranma regain his strength. Shampoo's great-grandma comes to help Ranma too. She shows them one technique that might work for Ranma. It is called the hiryuu shoutenha. Akane and Ryouga are also on their way to find Ranma in the mountains. Ranma figures out that the hiryuu shoutenha technique uses the opponent's force by drawing them into the center of a circle. Shampoo's great-grandma tells Ranma to stay on the circular line that he drew on the ground no matter what happens in order to master this technique. Akane and Ukyou try to help Ranma with the training, but Shampoo's great-grandma says that they can't help because Ranma won't try all out to beat them up. Then Ryouga comes and says that he'll help Ranma, although he can't guarantee that he won't kill him. Shampoo's great-grandma puts on a metal supporter around Ranma's body before his training with Ryouga. This supporter will contract when heated. Shampoo's great-grandma says that Ranma has to say cool, while his opponent gets hotter and hotter. Ryouga starts attacking Ranma. Ranma's movement stays on a circular line and was drawing Ryouga closer and closer toward the center. But, Shampoo's great-grandma stops them. She hits Ryouga because Ryouga wasn't trying all out. Then Ryouga says that he's too nice of a guy to try all out against such a weak opponent as Ranma. Ryouga runs off. When Akane hears from Shampoo's great-grandma that what is needed is heat, she puts some cloth around her arms and lights them on fire and starts attacking Ranma. As Ranma yells at Akane that this is dumb, the fire jumps onto Akane's clothes and catches on fire. Akane jumps into a lake to extinguish the flames. Since Akane's shirt got burned, Ranma gives her his shirt. Then he yells at her for coming. Akane starts to cry. When Ryouga pops out of the bushes and sees Akane crying with her clothes all torn, he accuses Ranma of attacking Akane. Ranma, thinking that he can get Ryouga mad enough to fight him all out, says to Akane, "I'm sorry. You're so cute and so sexy, I couldn't resist attacking you." Then Ryouga couldn't hold back any longer and starts to attack Ranma. Akane says that it's not true and tells Ryouga to stop, but they keep fighting. Ranma is getting beaten up, but he is still drawing Ryouga toward the center of the circle. Just when Ryouga was going to throw the final punch to kill Ranma, Ranma throws his cold, tornado punch, which sends Ryouga flying. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 50 title: Kessen!

The hiryuu shoutenha works by drawing the opponent into the center of the circle while making him hotter and keeping yourself cool. At the center, you release your cool punch, and the temperature difference will cause a tornado-like wind. Since Ranma mastered the hiryuu shoutenha, they all return. Even though Happosai was stealing panties and running around, he wasn't happy. He felt like he was missing something. It was Ranma. There was nobody to stop him and fight with him. Then Ranma appears in front of Happosai and dumps all of the panties that he was carrying. Happosai gets mad and they start to fight. Ranma draws Happosai into the center of the circle and releases the hiryuu shoutenha. But just as Ranma threw his punch, Happosai disappeared. Happosai had jumped to a window where a girl was undressing. Happosai tells Ranma that he won't fight. Shampoo's great-grandma had used the hiryuu shoutenha against Happosai when he was young, so he knew what Ranma was trying to do. Ranma tried many things to get Happosai mad. Ranma even burned all of Happosai's panty collection, but Happosai didn't get mad. Then Ranma thinks of one final way to get Happosai mad. Ranma challenged Happosai to a duel at school. When they get ready to fight, Ranma says that he will throw away his pride to get his strength back. Then he pulls out a lot of sexy, semi-nude pictures of himself as Ranma-chan. When Ryouga says that it's just the same as usual, Akane points out that it isn't. Before Ranma always wore mens underwear even when he was Ranma-chan and wore girls clothes. In these pictures, Ranma-chan was wearing girls panties and a bra. When Ranma asked Happosai if he wanted the pictures, Kunou appears and says that he wants them. Then Happosai get's very, very mad and says that the pictures are his. When they start to fight, Moose and the high school principal also jump in. Then Ranma releases the hiryuu shoutenha and creates a tornado. They all go flying. Happosai, Kunou, Moose, and the principal hit the ground severely beaten up. The high school boys all bury them on the spot. Akane was trying to get the anatomy drawing the Happosai had dropped and was close enough to get caught into the tornado. Ranma sees Akane floating in the tornado and tries to swim in the winds to get to her. Akane loses consciousness and Ranma holds her as they were falling to the ground. Happosai gets out of the ground and throws his Happodaikarin (firecracker) at Ranma. The explosion saves Ranma and Akane from hitting the ground. But, they get thrown into a fence. Ranma's face hits the fence as he protects Akane. After they hit the ground, Akane gets up unhurt. Ranma remembers that the drawing was all torn up in the tornado. But Shampoo's great-grandma told everyone to pick up the pieces of paper that were falling to the ground. She put all of the pieces together, but there was one piece missing. It was the most important piece with the pressure point to cure Ranma. A saddened Ranma runs away. He says that he will leave home. Then Akane comes and tells him that she won't try to stop him, but that she will go with him. Meanwhile, while Ukyou was pounding Happosai with her spatula, Ryouga finds the missing piece of the drawing on Happosai's forehead. Then Shampoo's great-grandma comes to give a cautery to Ranma. This cures Ranma and he returns back to his normal strength. Ranma is so happy that he goes around breaking everything.

Ukyou says that they will stay over night. Ranma says ok. Ukyou says that it will be just the two of them. Ranma says ok. Then Akane comes into the store yelling at Ranma for not coming home right away while running an errand. Ranma leaves with Akane. That night, Ukyou was wondering if Ranma would like her better if she was more feminine. The next day, all of the boys at school were staring at the cute girl who was wearing the school uniform and walking toward school. They say that they don't remember there being such a cute girl in this school before. They think that she is a transfer student. But it was Ukyou, wearing the regular girl's school uniform. When Ukyou walks up to Ranma, he was surprised at first, but recognizes Ukyou's spatula. Then Ukyou asks Ranma what he thinks about her. Ranma says that they are friends. A saddened Ukyou walks to the classroom. In class a lot of the boys try to pick up Ukyou, even Kunou. Akane was wondering why Ukyou was so different today. When Akane asked Kasumi what could have caused Ukyou to change, Kasumi said that maybe Ukyou was getting serious. Later, Ukyou comes to ask Ranma out on a date. In a park, Ukyou was going to say something to Ranma, but a lot of boys from their high school spot them and start chasing them. Ukyou and Ranma run away and run into Ryouga. Ryouga thinks that Ranma was playing around with some girl and starts to attack Ranma. But Ukyou beats him up with her spatula. At home, Happosai was getting out his formal wear. When Akane asks what it is for, Happosai says that it is for Ranma and Ukyou's wedding. That night, Sasuke tells Kodachi that Ranma was playing around with Ukyou. When Ranma comes home, Akane was waiting for him outside. She asks Ranma where he had been all this time. Before Ranma could answer, Ryouga, Kunou, and Kodachi also appear. Ryouga and Kunou start arguing over who will beat up Ranma. Kodachi and Akane also start arguing. The next day at the high school gym, Ukyou, Kodachi, and Akane get ready for a cooking contest to see who can go out with Ranma. They have to make a full course French lunch. Just before it starts, Shampoo also comes and says that she wants to be included in the battle for Ranma. They all cook each meal in the course and give it to Ranma. Shampoo makes a Chinese cuisine style lunch. Kodachi's is Japanese style. Ukyou makes fancy okonomiyaki. Akane makes very simple ordinary food. After Ranma eats everything, the girls ask Ranma which was the best. Ranma couldn't decide. He was wondering how he could have eaten Akane's cooking without getting sick. While Ranma was thinking, Kunou and a lot of the boys come to beat up Ranma. When Kodachi and Akane go to comfort Ranma, they fight over him again. Ukyou was watching and thinking that it was her fault that all of this was happening to Ranma. When Ranma and Akane were walking home, Akane kept asking Ranma if her cooking was the best. Ranma replied that all the food was mixed up and he couldn't remember what was what. Then Ranma smells some food. He goes to the origin of the smell and goes into Ukyou's okonomiyaki store. After Ukyou makes an okonomiyaki for Ranma, Ranma tells Ukyou that her okonomiyaki is the best. Then Ranma whispers to Ukyou that she looks better in her normal style of clothes. Ukyou reacts by hitting Ranma with her spatula because she was so embarrassed. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 52 title: Ranma no mamaga yattekita! opening song: Zettai!

After Ranma chased it into a corner, the bakeneko (a large white ghost cat) appeared. When the bakeneko saw Ranma in a fighting pose, he hugged Ranma and asked him not to beat him up. Ranma freaks out. While everyone was listening to the bakeneko's story, Shampoo arrived with a delivery of ramen. When the bakeneko saw Shampoo's bell, he asked her to be his wife. Then Shampoo told the bakeneko that she is going out with Ranma. The bakeneko gets mad and starts going after Ranma. Ranma was scared of the cat, but gets one punch in. The bakeneko cries and goes away, saying that he'll be back. The next day everyone was waiting for the bakeneko to appear again. Ranma was scared. The bakeneko comes. Genma and Shampoo throws Ranma at the bakeneko. Then both Ranma and the bakeneko start crying. The bakeneko stops crying and says that he has a special technique to defeat Ranma. He projects himself into Genma's body, thinking that Ranma wouldn't attack his own father. But Ranma regains his strength and pounds Genma. The bakeneko then says that he'll take over Shampoo's body. But Shampoo kicks the bakeneko. Then the bakeneko says that he will give up on Shampoo. When Shampoo thanked Ranma for fighting for her, Ranma said that he didn't and that he doesn't love her. Then Shampoo pretends like she is going to cry. But Shampoo gives the little bell to Ranma and pushed him into the pond. When Ranma-chan comes out of the pond with the bell, the bakeneko says that he has found a new wife. He picks up Ranma-chan and licks her. Then Ranma-chan turns into the cat and beats up the bakeneko. The bakeneko escapes, saying that he doesn't want such a wild woman as a wife. Then Akane comforts Ranma-chan. The next day, the bakeneko was at school chasing all of the girls, trying to find someone to be his wife. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 55 title: Fukeyo kaze! Seishunha nekketsuda opening song: Zettai!

When Higuma-sensei asked Ukyou, Ukyou got up, cooked an okonomiyaki, and answered okonomiyaki. Higuma-sensei liked Ukyou's excitement. When Higuma-sensei asked Ranma, Ranma just said, "musabetsu kakutou" in a very unexcited tone. Higuma-sensei asked Ranma again, but Ranma just repeated his answer the same way. Then Higuma-sensei got up on his desk and shouted out how he wanted Ranma to answer. He told Ranma to practice the answer at home.

Ryouga brought with him a lot of doujou signs that he had gotten by doujou yaburi. Ryouga tells Ranma to attack any time he wants. Ranma attacks but Ryouga avoids everything that Ranma throws at him. Then with just one little finger, Ryouga defeats Ranma. Ryouga then tells Ranma what had happened with the old man and his stomach. Ryouga shows Ranma his stomach. There was a drawing of a very stupid looking smiling face written in black ink. Ryouga says that it won't come off no matter how hard he rubs. The old man told Ryouga that the only way that it will come off is to lose in a match. Then Ranma says that he will somehow defeat Ryouga so that he drawing will come off.

Ryouga was hiding in the bushes listening. Akane says, "That drawing. No matter how I look at it, it has to be the same person." Akane pauses. Then she continues, "That drew both of them." Then Ranma takes out a brush and a piece of paper and draws a stupid smiley face. He says that he drew it on both Ryouga and P-chan. But when Akane looks at the drawing, she says that the drawing is not that bad. Ryouga comes out of the bushes and says good-bye to Akane. He runs off with tears in his eyes. Ryouga walked around all night so that he can get far away from Akane. The next morning Ryouga came to an open lot to rest. Then the panda came by and said hello to Ryouga. Ryouga had returned to the same city that he had tried to leave. Then Ranma-chan comes by dressed as a high school volleyball player. She hits the ball at Ryouga and tries to trick him and beat him up. Just as Ryouga bent his body to hit the volleyball, Ranma-chan landed one kick into Ryouga. But Ryouga easily recovered to beat up Ranma-chan and sent her flying. Since Ryouga didn't know that the volleyball player was Ranma-chan, he went off to try to find the girl. While Ryouga was running in the street, an old lady was sprinkling water on the street. The water hits Ryouga and turns him into P-chan. Akane was jogging in the street and was thinking about Ryouga and P-chan. She was thinking that as soon as Ryouga had left, P-chan had disappeared too. But she comes up to see P-chan in the street. Akane takes P-chan back home and tries to wash off the drawing on his stomach. While Akane was scrubbing P-chan, she was talking to him and said that maybe Ryouga is P-chan. But Akane quickly says that it can't be because Ryouga is on a trip somewhere. Then Akane gets a pot of hot water to wash off the soap on P-chan's stomach. Akane starts to pour the hot water on P-chan. After all of the hot water in the pot was emptied, Akane drops the pot because she was surprised at what she saw. [commercial break] Ranma comes home thinking that he has found a way to defeat Ryouga. He sees Akane, the empty pot of hot water, and Ryouga's bandana. Ranma asks Akane if she poured hot water on P-chan. Akane says that she just tried to wash off the drawing. Then Ranma tells Akane to forgive Ryouga. Akane doesn't know what Ranma was talking about by mentioning Ryouga. Then Akane says that when she tried to pour the hot water on P-chan, P-chan drank all of the hot water and ran away. Akane asks Ranma what this has to do with Ryouga. Ranma tries to avoid the question and runs off to look for Ryouga. After Ranma finds P-chan lying with his stomach all full, he pours hot water on P-chan and then tells Ryouga that he had an idea that will enable him to beat up Ryouga. Ranma tells Ryouga that if the drawing on Ryouga's stomach changes expressions, just as it did when Ryouga received the volleyball, Ryouga's power is reduced. Ranma and Ryouga go to the doujou. They see a curtain hanging across the doujou, but leave it alone. Then Ranma tells Ryouga to try to move his stomach muscles so that the drawing on his stomach will change expressions. After trying for a while Ryouga finally controlled his stomach to make the expression change enough. So, Ranma told Ryouga to get ready to fight. Just then, a little girl opened the curtain and revealed the other side of the doujou full of women. Akane and Kasumi were there too. When Ranma asked Akane what was going on, she told him that the local women's club meeting was being held in the doujou. All of the women laugh at Ryouga's stomach. Ryouga was shocked that his stomach had been seen by so many women. Then, Ranma walks up to Ryouga and hits him on the head. The drawing disappeared right in front of everybody because Ryouga had lost. Akane thought was Ryouga had been practicing this "trick" for the woman's club meeting. When Akane wonders why P-chan had the same drawing as Ryouga, Ranma says that maybe Ryouga drew the face on P-chan to practice. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 63 title: Tamagowo Tsukamu Otoko opening song: Zettai!

When Akane told Nabiki and Ranma what she had heard from Kasumi about the man catching the eggs, Ranma said that he can do it too. Nabiki said that Kasumi probably likes this strange guy. When Akane said that Kasumi has Tofu-sensei, Nabiki answered that Tofu-sensei doesn't make up his mind, so Kasumi might change to this guy. Meanwhile the strange guy was walking around.

When Akane told Nabiki that Kasumi still cares for Tofu-sensei, Nabiki replied that Kasumi wants to go to Tofu-sensei to test her own feelings. Then Akane decides to go with Kasumi to Tofu-sensei's place. When Soun asks Nabiki what they are being so secretive about, Nabiki tells her father that Kasumi fell in love with a strange man. (Nabiki was reading a Ranma 1/2 manga/book, with a panda on the cover.) Soun gets mad and pictures of Kasumi running off with a strange guy enter into his head. Soun tells Ranma-chan to take Kasumi's place. On the way to Tofu-sensei's place, Akane asked Kasumi what kind of guy she likes. Kasumi replied that she likes someone who is a little bit strange (unordinary). After Tofu-sensei fixed up the strange man, he invited him to stay for the night. Just then Akane and Kasumi appeared. When Tofu-sensei saw Kasumi, he turns weird again and starts eating and tearing apart the book that Kasumi returned. Then Kasumi sees the strange man. He introduces himself as Yasukichi. When Kasumi and Akane were about to leave, Yasukichi asks Akane if Tofu-sensei is all right, mentally. Akane says that he's always this way whenever he sees Kasumi. Yasukichi then gives Kasumi his umbrella because it was snowing outside. The next day, Ranma was practicing catching the eggs. Then Yasukichi comes to the Tendo home. Soun thought that Yasukichi had come to ask for Kasumi. But, Yasukichi had come to try to get Kasumi and Tofu-sensei together. When Yasukichi mentioned eggs, Kasumi brings out some oden. She said that when Yasukichi mentioned that Kasumi's eggs were good the previous day, she decided to cook oden the next day. That's why she was so happy. Yasukichi then tells Kasumi that she should bring some of the oden to Tofu-sensei. Soun then asks Yasukichi to stay over for the night. The next morning when Yasukichi was leaving, Ranma throws thirteen eggs at Yasukichi. He caught them all. But when Yasukichi caught the last egg, the good luck charm around his neck popped out of his shirt. When Kasumi saw it, she remembered about the past. There used to be a poultry farm nearby and there was a boy, Yakkun, who used to play with Kasumi when they were little. When Yakkun had to move away, Kasumi gave him the good luck charm as a parting gift. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 64 title: Ranma to Kunou no hatsu kiss?! opening song: Zettai! Part 2 (Hayasaka Yoshie) ending song: Friends (Yawmin) aired: 91.02.22 Sasuke arrives at the Tendo home with a present for Akane and Ranma-chan. The present is a small statue of Kunou which had a tape recorded message. The message said that Kunou will miss school for a couple days, so he will give them the statue so that they won't feel sad. They can think of the statue as the real Kunou and kiss it. Kunou goes to a shrine somewhere in the mountains. There was a sword stuck in a stone called the mangan maru. It was said that the one who pulled out the sword will get three wishes. There was a long line of guys waiting for a chance to try to pull out the sword. One by one, they all fail. But when Kunou went up, he pulled out the sword because he was the "chosen" one. One day on the way to school, Ranma and the panda were fighting. Then Kunou comes along, talking to himself. He was saying that since he was so perfect he didn't need three wishes. Then Ranma jumps on Kunou's head. When Kunou gets mad, he uses his first wish to beat up Ranma. The panda was watching this scene and knew that the mangan maru will cure his and Ranma's curses. At school Kunou was telling his classmates about the mangan maru. Then he made his second wish. Kunou wished that he can have a date with Ranma-chan. Just then a rubber headed arrow lands on Kunou's head. Attached to it was a letter from Ranma-chan, asking for a data next Sunday. The night before the date at home, Ranma-chan was trying on clothes for the date. Ranma-chan says that she will act like a very cute girl in order to get the mangan maru away from Kunou. Akane was afraid that Kunou will use the last wish to take advantage of Ranma-chan. Genma and Akane hide and watch Ranma-chan and Kunou's date. Ranma-chan and Kunou look at the early morning sun. When Kunou asked Ranma-chan what she wished for, Ranma-chan said that she wished that she will have fun on the date. Then Kunou tried to take out the mangan maru to make Ranma-chan's wish come true. But Ranma-chan and Genma immediately kick Kunou. Then Kunou and Ranma-chan run on the beach. When Ranma-chan falls, she starts crying and saying that it hurts. Then Kunou rushes to Ranma-chan and tries to help her up. But Ranma-chan grabs Kunou and tries to reach for the mangan maru. Then Kunou pulls Ranma-chan away and tells her that they shouldn't rush things and that they should start with koukan nikki. When Ranma-chan and Kunou started to eat breakfast, Ranma-chan put some sleeping powder on the onigiri. Then she stuffed it into Kunou's mouth. Kunou ate some more food and drank some tea before falling asleep. When Kunou fell asleep, Genma came over and took the mangan maru. He tried to run away, but the mangan maru was tied to Kunou, so Ranma-chan caught him. Then Genma tried to ask for ten more wishes. But the mangan maru replied that this was against the rules. Also the mangan maru said that the voice that asked for the wish was not the correct voice. So they found out that only Kunou's wishes would be valid. Then Kunou came up to them. Kunou saw Akane there and thought that Akane was jealous that Kunou went on a date with Ranma-chan. So he was going to use his third wish to ask for a date with Akane. But Ranma-chan and Akane both punch Kunou. Then Ranma-chan and Kunou go on with their date. When Kunou was running and chasing Ranma-chan, Ranma-chan kept avoiding Kunou. So Kunou pulls out the mangan maru to try to use a wish to catch Ranma-chan. But Ranma-chan kicks Kunou. Then Ranma-chan and Kunou go to a restaurant. While they were eating, Ranma-chan says to Kunou that she has a problem with her body that she wants the mangan maru to help with. She says that she will do anything if the mangan maru helps her. Akane comes in to try to stop Ranma-chan, but Ranma-chan pulls Kunou out. Then Kunou asks Ranma-chan to close her eyes. Ranma-chan closes her eyes, but just before Kunou kisses Ranma-chan, she hits Kunou and sends him flying. Kunou comes back and says that he will give the third wish to Ranma-chan. Just as Ranma-chan thought that her curse will be cured, a large statue commemorating Ranma-chan and Kunou's first date pops out from the ground. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 65 title: Shampoo no akai ito opening song: Zettai! Part 2 (Hayasaka Yoshie) ending song: Friends (Yawmin) aired: 91.03.01 A Chinese salesman comes over to the Neko Hanten. Shampoo sees a red string. The salesman said that if the red string is tied on the little finger of someone and yourself for five hours, that person will love you forever. So Shampoo buys it. Shampoo goes over to the Tendo home to try to put the string on Ranma's little finger. Ranma was sleeping. But Akane comes into the room to return a book, so Shampoo runs away before she can tie the string. Ranma was chasing P-chan around. Shampoo was setting a trap for Ranma. But Shampoo's red string traps P-chan. Shampoo lets P-chan go and then asks Ranma to play ayatori (a game where you try to get the string off of another person's fingers, etc..) with her. At first Ranma says no, but when Shampoo says that he can eat for free at the Neko Hanten, Ranma says yes. Then Akane gets mad and throws water on Ranma. While Ranma-chan and Akane were arguing, Shampoo ties the string on Ranma-chan's little finger. Then Shampoo pours the hot water on Ranma-chan. Ranma says to Shampoo, let's get married. Ranma and Shampoo go through the Tendo house saying that they will get married. When Soun tells Genma to do something about it, Genma pours water on himself and rolls around as the panda. Soun goes up to Akane and tells her to beg to Ranma. But Akane says that it doesn't concern her. When Nabiki says that Ranma is rushing things too much, Kasumi notices that there is a real red string binding Ranma and Shampoo's little fingers. Nabiki goes to Ukyou's okonomiyaki store to tell Ukyou about Ranma and Shampoo's wedding. Nabiki also tells Ukyou that there is a visible red string tying Ranma and Shampoo together. Then Ukyou goes out saying that she will cut the string. Sasuke was also in the store listening. He goes off to tell Kunou and Kodachi. Ukyou, Moose, and Kodachi run to the Tendo home to try to stop Ranma and Shampoo. When they get to the gate, Kunou was there and he said that he won't allow anyone to break up Ranma and Shampoo. Ukyou, Moose, and Kodachi beat up Kunou and go after Ranma and Shampoo. Akane receives an invitation to the wedding. Soun tells Akane to go stop the wedding, but Akane is still very stubborn and says that it has nothing to do with her. Then Nabiki comes and tells everyone that Ranma and Shampoo are tied together by a real red string. Soun tells Akane to cut the red string with a scissors. But she says that she doesn't want to. When he heard this, P-chan grabbed the scissors, ran out of the room, and jumped into the hot bath. At the Neko Hanten, Shampoo's great-grandma was helping Shampoo get dressed for the wedding. Ranma was already dressed in a tuxedo. When Ukyou and Moose came, Shampoo poured water on Moose. Ranma told Ukyou that nobody can interfere with their love. Then Ukyou turned around and started to walk away. But she turned around right away and threw her spatula at the red string. When the string was cut, Ranma didn't know what was going on. But Kunou came right away and tied the string between Shampoo and Ranma. Then Kunou stops Kodachi and Ukyou, and tells Shampoo and Ranma to run away. Just outside of the Neko Hanten, Ryouga stops Shampoo and Ranma, saying that he won't let anyone make Akane sad. He cuts the string with the scissors and grabs the string. Then Shampoo tells Ryouga that if she and Ranma get married, Akane will be his. Ryouga gets all confused and doesn't know what to do. While Ryouga was confused, Shampoo grabs the red string away from Ryouga. At home Akane was studying. But she kept thinking about Ranma and Shampoo. When she couldn't take it any more, she leaves her room. Just before 5:00 PM, the wedding is about to begin. But Akane comes in with a bouquet for Ranma and Shampoo. As she went up to give the bouquet to Shampoo, Akane took out her scissors and cut the red string. Then at 5:00 PM, the red string disappeared. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 66 title: Moose kokyouni kaeru opening song: Zettai! Part 2 (Hayasaka Yoshie) ending song: Friends (Yawmin) aired: 91.03.08 Moose came to the Neko Hanten to help out. But he drops seven bowls of ramen and also attacks a customer who asked Shampoo out. So Shampoo makes him wash dishes in the back. Then a letter for Moose arrives from his mother in China. She says that she is waiting for him to come back with Shampoo as his bride. Then Moose decides that he is going to fight Ranma. He tells Shampoo that he will beat Ranma for sure, and that he wants her to go back to China with him. Shampoo says ok, but that if Moose loses, Moose has to go back to China by himself. Moose runs off to look for Ranma. Moose finds Ranma and fights with him. But Ranma wins again. Then Shampoo and her great-grandma arrive. Shampoo's great-grandma tells Moose that it's no good fighting Ranma and that he should go back to China. Then Moose tells Ranma and Shampoo that he will go back to China. That night Akane scolds Ranma for not stopping Moose. Then Shampoo arrives with some nikuman for the Tendo family. Ranma hears some noise outside, but when he goes to investigate, he doesn't see anyone. He doesn't see the duck in the pond. When Shampoo returns to the Neko Hanten, the duck was sneaking around waiting for her. When Shampoo's great-grandma mentioned Moose, Shampoo says, "I wonder if Moose arrived safely," with tears in her eyes. The duck sees this and thinks that Shampoo cares for her. But Shampoo's tears turns out to be because of the onions she was cutting. Kodachi sees the duck walking around in the street. She takes it home with her and puts it in her pond with the pet alligator Midorigame. Ranma was trying hard to avoid Shampoo. Because Moose was gone, Shampoo was spending more time with Ranma. Then Moose, with a mask over his face and calling himself a cupid from another planet, appears in front of Ranma and tells him that he will make sure that Shampoo is happy together with Ranma. Ranma goes over to Ucchan's store to eat. But Moose appears again and stops Ranma from eating. Then Moose and Ukyou fight. When Ranma was walking around feeling very hungry, he runs into Kodachi. She says that she will cook for him. So they go to Kodachi's house. When Kodachi brings out the food for Ranma, Moose appears again. Moose fights Kodachi and eats the food. But there was some paralysis powder in the food. When Moose falls down, Kodachi throws him into the pond. When Ranma tried to save the duck, Moose pulls Ranma into the water. Ranma-chan and Moose get away from Midorigame. Then Kunou appears and carries Ranma-chan off to the warm bath. But Moose comes and beats up Kunou. Then Moose says that he will fight Ranma again. Ranma and Moose fight in a park. But Ranma wins again. When Moose says that he will give up and go back to China, Ranma tells him not to give up. Then Akane comes by and tells Moose that Shampoo was looking for him. Moose happily runs back to the Neko Hanten. At the Neko Hanten, Shampoo had prepared a great feast for Moose. Moose was so happy when he saw it. Then, Shampoo and her great-grandma left Moose to take care of the store while they went on vacation. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 67 title: Shijo^ saite no kake opening song: Zetttai! Part 2 ending song: Friends (Yawmin) aired: 91.03.15 There is a thunderstorm outside and no customers, so Ukyo^ closes down her okonomiyaki-ya early. She hears a strange noise and attacks its source, but receives as a counter attack a hand of cards. An ominous voice says "You lose." Ukyo^ recognizes it. At the Tendo^ Do^jo^, Ukyo^ warns Ranma that she saw the `Gambler King' (Bakucho^ no KINGU) that she and Ranma encountered ten years ago. Akane doesn't quite understand what's going on. Suddenly Ranma is hit by a huge dice. The Gambler King (who looks like a king on a deck of cards) says "You lose." The Gambler King reminds Ranma of their encounter 10 years ago. Ranma beats the Gambler King up. Soun enters the room and asks about Ranma's guest. The Gambler King mentions that Ranma owes him the Tendo^ Do^jo^. He has a signed IOU to prove it. He says he will return tommorrow morning. Soun beats Ranma up. Ranma goes to Ukyo^'s okonomiyaki-ya to talk about his predicament. Ukyo^ invites Ranma to stay with her, since it isn't safe for Ranma to return to the Tendo^ Do^jo^. Akane, peeking in, is furious that Ranma is going to be living with Ukyo^. But she returns home without doing anything. Back home, Kasumi and Nabiki ask Akane what she's intends to do. Kasumi collects Ranma's stuff for Akane to bring to Ranma. When Akane arrives back at the okonomiyaki-ya, she overhears snippets of highly compromising sounds coming from Ukyo^'s bedroom -- Ukyo^ telling Ranma to be "manly" with her, and Ranma grunting and panting. Akane, already believing the worst, bursts in -- to find Ranma and Ukyo^ playing cards! Ranma's grunts were because he keeps on losing. Ukyo^ is helping Ranma train to fight the Gambler King. It is a card drawing game called BABA-nuki. Ranma keeps on drawing the joker, thus losing. Akane joins the effort. They spend all night and the next morning gambling. Ranma is down to his undershorts, and Ukyo^ has won several IOU's on top of that. Panda is distributing flyers to all the local kids for `Casino King', located at the former Tendo^ Do^jo^. Nabiki is working as a croupier and is doing quite well. Soun tries to win back the do^jo^ by wagering various parts of the Tendo^ house with the Gambler King. Ranma comes in and takes over, but loses. Soun gambles away the rest of the Tendo^ house. Nabiki takes over, and starts winning. Then the Gambler King's eyes turn red. Ranma-chan is working as the new "cute girl" waitress at Ukyo^'s okonomiyaki-ya, as payment for all the gambling debts Ranma owes her. Ukyo^ sees this as her big chance to win Ranma for herself. Ukyo^ and Ranma-kun return home from the public bath. She's looking forward to being alone with Ranma. To her dismay, they discover the entire Tendo^ family camping out in her bedroom. They've gambled away the entire Tendo^ home. Ukyo^ tells everyone what happened 10 years ago. The Gambler King, who apparently preys on kids, got young Ukyo^ to gamble away everything she had. She went to Ranma for assistance, but Ranma kept on losing too. Finally, down to his undershorts, in a last attempt to win everything back, Ranma bet the Tendo^ Do^jo^. When the Gambler King asked what that was, Ranma said that it was owned by a friend of his father's, and that he would inherit it. Ranma lost again. Akane and Soun are pissed to hear this story. Ukyo^ continues the story: Ukyo^ and Ranma beat up the Gambler King, tie him up, and toss him off a bridge. They discover that the Gambler King was cheating; all of the cards in the deck the Gambler King uses are jokers! Ukyo^ and Akane continue training Ranma to win at BABA-nuki. Nabiki comes by and tells them that by watching the facial expressions of your opponent you can tell if the card you're about to draw is a good card or a bad card. The Gambler King does this. Ukyo^ trains Ranma to not show his facial expression, with some extreme measures. At Casino King, the girls are slowing winning back the house, piece by piece. Soun bets it again to win back the do^jo, and loses. The girls once again win back the house, and refuse to let Soun to use the house as a trump to try to win the do^jo^ back. Ranma enters, with a mask on his face, to gamble for the Tendo^ do^jo^. The Tendo^ girls make clear their refusal to allow any more gambling of the Tendo^ house. Ukyo^ puts up her okonomiyaki-ya as Ranma's trump. Akane asks Ukyo^ why she's doing this. Ukyo^ explains that Ranma has made her a promise; if he loses her okonomiyaki-ya, she gets *him*. We see Ukyo^'s fantasy; the two of them dirt poor, Ukyo^'s business is back to a small hand-pulled okonomiyaki-stand, they're out in heavy snow...but Ranma is exclusively hers at last!! She dreams of Ranma making an okonomiyaki saying "I love Ukyo^" on it. The BABA-nuki begins, with neither side gaining a winning advantage. Ranma notices that the joker cards look differently from the others (it's a bit frayed), and avoids it. But the Gambler King slips the joker in Ranma's hand anyway. Finally, the Gambler King holds out a joker and the Ace of Spades and lays them face down, telling Ranma to pick one. Akane realizes that the Gambler King is cheating -- both cards on the table are jokers. She tries to warn Ranma not to draw, but it's too late; Ranma has already drawn a card. Akane has a mental flash of Ukyo^ and Ranma going off together in the snow. But Ranma has drawn the Ace of Spades, winning back the do^jo^. The Gambler King doesn't understand how this could have happened (both cards *were* jokers). As he leaves town, he decides that Ranma must have out-cheated him somehow. At the do^jo^, Ranma takes off his mask; he had hidden one of every kind of card in his mask! Later, at Ukyo^s okonomiyaki-ya, Ranma-chan is working as a waitress. Ukyo^ still has several gambling IOUs from Ranma. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 68 title: Marianne ni natta Kunou opening song: Zettai!

Then Azusa notices a guy riding a bicycle and wearing a panda hat. Azusa jumps for the hat and gives it a name, saying that it's hers. She causes an accident and an ambulance comes. When Azusa sees the flashing light on top of the ambulance, she jumps for it and also claims it. She beats up the ambulance attendant and takes the light. Ranma and Akane go to the scene and see Azusa. Next, Azusa sees a rickshaw in the distance. She runs after it because she wants it. Sasuke was pulling Kunou in the rickshaw. While Kunou was inside the store shopping, Sasuke was waiting outside with the rickshaw. Azusa caught up and jumped at the rickshaw. When Azusa saw Sasuke, she called him Sophia. Azusa started to put lipstick and makeup on Sasuke. Then Kunou came out of the store and saw Sasuke. Kunou tried to back away when Sasuke tried to talk to him. Then Azusa got mad at Sasuke for not sitting still and hit him over the head with the rickshaw. All of this commotion caused a large statue of a raccoon to fall on top of Kunou. When Azusa saw the raccoon, she called it Marianne. Kunou thought that Azusa had fallen in love with him. So Kunou and Sasuke take Azusa back to the Kunou mansion. When Azusa started to say her normal stupid things, Kunou was starting to have illusions that she was so much in love with him that she couldn't think straight any more. Ranma and Akane had been following Azusa to see if she had changed any. But they saw that she was still the same, and that Kunou was no match for her. Then Ranma said that he hoped that those two would stay together. When Akane asked why, Ranma said that Kunou won't have time to go around chasing Akane and that he wouldn't have to worry about her. Then Akane asked what Ranma meant. Ranma just laughed and avoided the question, which made Akane mad. At the Kunou mansion, Azusa was going around and dressing up Kunou, Sasuke, and Midorigame, calling them with he cute names. Then Kodachi comes in and asks what is going on. When Azusa appears with Kodachi's dolls, Kodachi and Azusa start fighting. Sasuke mentions to Kunou that Kodachi and Azusa have a lot in common. The next morning, Kodachi says that she will leave for a couple days. Ranma and Akane go shopping together. While they were talking about Kunou, and wondering what happened between him and Azusa, Kunou appears and kicks Ranma. While Ranma and Kunou were arguing, Azusa appears. She yells at Ranma and Akane for trying to steal Marianne. Then Akane gets mad and starts arguing, when Azusa brought up the subject of Charlotte (P-chan). Azusa and Akane agree to fight in kakutou pair skating at Kunou's skating rink. When Kunou says that they don't have one, Azusa says that Marianne can build one overnight. The next day when Ranma and Akane go over to Kunou's, they were surprised to see the brand new skating rink with a dome. Kunou and Ranma both brag to each other about how good they can skate. But when they take one step on the ice, they both fall over backwards. The match begins as Akane pulls Ranma and Azusa pulls Kunou and skate toward each other. Then Akane and Azusa let go of Ranma and Kunou, and send them sliding on the ice toward each other. Both Ranma and Kunou didn't know how to stop, so they crashed into each other. Azusa then tried to kick Akane, but Akane avoided her. Then Azusa pulled Kunou and sent him sliding toward Akane, telling him to kiss her. When Kunou tried to kiss Akane, Akane kicked him and sent him flying. Meanwhile Azusa was holding Ranma and tried to kiss him. When Akane tried to go help Ranma, Azusa whirled Ranma around and sent him sliding on the ice. Then Azusa used the hakuchounomai technique. It created a smoke screen so that Akane didn't know where to attack. Akane jumped up and went into the middle of the smoke with her kick. When the smoke cleared, Akane found out that she had kicked Ranma. Now both Kunou and Ranma were down. Then Azusa and Akane both skated toward each other to fight. But when Kunou fell off of the wall that he had been plastered against, Azusa saw the statue of the raccoon behind the wall. Just before Azusa and Akane were going to collide, Azusa jumps for the raccoon. When Azusa pulls very hard at the raccoon, the skating rink starts to shake and break apart. Then the entire skating rink falls apart. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 69 title: Ranma nanka daikirai! opening song: Zettai!

When Soun went back inside, he heard Akane yelling in the kitchen. He went to the kitchen and saw Akane trying very hard to make something. Soun worriedly asked Kasumi if Akane was preparing breakfast. She answered no. When Soun went closer to look at what Akane was making, Akane turned around and yelled at her father that his presence was bothering her. When breakfast was ready, Kasumi called everyone to the table. Everyone came except for Akane. Akane said that she will eat after she is finished in the kitchen. When Ranma asked what Akane was doing, Soun said that she was preparing something special for Ranma. Genma and Happosai quickly said that Ranma was so lucky. But when Ranma said that he will let them eat some too, they all shook their heads. During breakfast, Happosai stole Ranma's takuwan. Ranma started chasing Happosai throughout the house. Just when Akane's cooking was finished, she pulled out the pan from the oven. Then Ranma and Happosai came running into the kitchen. Happosai kicked Ranma head first into Akane's pan. Then all of the food fell to the floor. Ranma quickly apologized, but Akane was very mad and punched Ranma and gave him a black eye. The next day, Ranma was running to school late because Akane didn't wake him up. Genma was running after him with the lunch that Ranma had forgotten. But since Genma couldn't catch up to Ranma, he stopped and ate Ranma's lunch himself. When it was lunch time, Ranma noticed that he had forgotten his lunch. Luckily he had some money hidden away in his bag for such emergencies. Ranma had 150 yen. But when Ranma went to buy some lunch bread, they were all sold out. Later when Ranma went to Ucchan's store, he discovered that it was closed. When Akane got home, Genma and Soun were fighting. They were fighting because of Ranma and Akane. Then Ranma arrived at home too, very hungry because he had not eaten anything. When Akane and Ranma both tried to stop the fight, Ranma bumped into the table and dropped the money that he was holding. Immediately Genma spotted the money and dove for it. Then he said to Soun, "Wait a minute. We can continue this acting later." Then Akane and Ranma walked out. After dinner, Soun begged Akane to forgive Ranma. Then Akane said, "It's ok now." When Ranma said that Akane can cook another one again, Akane got mad and replied, "Stupid! Jerk! Because it has been two years since you and your father came to live in our house, I wanted to cook a delicious cake to celebrate. But since you destroyed it during a stupid fight, how can you say that I can just cook another one and it'll be the same. Ranma, I hate you!" That night, Kasumi tells everyone that Akane has disappeared. Happosai thought that Akane had run away from home. Then Soun starts crying that if something happens to Akane, he won't be able to face Akane's dead mother. Then everyone except Kasumi goes out to look for Akane. Just then Ryouga comes back from a trip. He sees everyone running out and follows Ranma. Soun and the panda spot a young girl running in the distance. They go chasing after her, calling out Akane's name. Then the girl runs to the police station. Then girl turns out to be someone else. Ranma and Ryouga fight when Ryouga finds out that Akane had run away from home. Ryouga thought that Ranma had attacked Akane. At 2 AM, Happosai, Nabiki, Soun, and the panda come back home. But there was still no sign of Akane. The next morning, Ranma-chan and P-chan come back. They had been fighting all night. Then Ranma-chan hears someone sneeze on the roof of the Tendo home. Ranma-chan jumps up onto the roof to find Akane. She had been sitting on the roof all night. Akane makes breakfast for everyone. Everyone faints. Akane tries to force Ranma to eat he cooking. Then Ranma asks Akane to run away from home. Then Akane chases Ranma around trying to beat him up. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 70 title: Sono osage moratta! opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.04.05 In China, four little men wearing a cape and a straw hat to hide their faces come into a store to demand some 4000 year old secret thing called the "dragon's hair". But the storekeeper didn't have it any more. He only had a drawing of the person who had it now. The drawing was of someone with a ponytail, just like Ranma. The four little men ran off looking for the person with the ponytail. In the neighborhood where the Tendo's lived, there have been several incidents of young girls having their ponytails cut. So Soun was asked to patrol the streets at night. While Soun, the panda, Ranma, and Akane were out patrolling the streets, the four little men appeared out of the sky to try to get Ranma's ponytail. Ranma fought them off very easily, saying that they were pretty weak. Then after the four men discussed something among themselves, they ran off down the street. Ranma went after them, but they were nowhere to be seen. Then the four little men appeared out of the sky again. Ranma beat them up again. When Ranma took off the hat to see who it was, they discovered that they were men who's head was shaped like a niku_man. Akane said that it was an an_man and the panda thought it was a pizza_man or curry_man. While Akane and Ranma were arguing whether it was a niku_man or an_man, Soun shouted that it doesn't matter and grabbed one of the little men to ask why they were after the ponytails. When the man said that they were after the "dragon's hair", they all didn't know what it was except for Ranma, who became very serious. When the niku_man-men attacked Ranma again, Ranma sent them flying again. The next day while Ranma and Genma were practicing in the doujou, the niku_man-men attacked Ranma again, dressed as painters. Ranma easily defeated them again, but one bucket of paint fell on Ranma's head. So Ranma had to wash his hair. When Ranma washed his hair, he didn't undo his ponytail. Even when Akane, Nabiki, and Kasumi said that he should undo the ponytail, Ranma said no. When Genma tried to touch Ranma's hair, Ranma beat him up. Then when Nabiki and Kasumi tried to grab Ranma to untie the ponytail, Ranma ran away. But Ranma ran into the panda in the hall and was knocked out. Then Nabiki held Ranma down with his head in the sink. Before Kasumi could untie the ponytail, the niku_man-men came and looked at the string that was used to tie Ranma's ponytail. They said that it was the "dragon's hair". Then Ranma regained consciousness and beat up the four little men. Ranma told everyone that he will not give the "dragon's hair" to anybody. When they asked what the "dragon's hair" was, Ranma said that it was his "seal". Then he also said that if he untied his hair, something terrible will happen. On the way to school, Akane was asking Ranma to tell her the secret of his hair. But Ranma didn't say anything. The niku_man-men tried to think of another way to get the "dragon's hair". They put some niku_man with some sleeping powder in it on the street near the school, hoping that Ranma will eat it and fall asleep. Then a bunch of school boys came running by. After a while, Ranma and Akane came running by. Then the niku_man-men jumped out onto the street expecting to see Ranma sleeping on the street. But Ranma and Akane were running into the school, and a bunch of boys were sleeping on the street with niku_man in their mouths. During gym class, Ranma was feeling tired because he hadn't eaten any breakfast. While he was taking a drink of water, the niku_man-men came and attacked Ranma with some niku_man gas bombs. It slowed down Ranma's moves a little bit as he tried to fight them off. Ranma beat them up and sent them flying, but the niku_man-men got the "dragon's hair" off of Ranma's ponytail. When the niku_man-men landed, Akane stepped on the little guy's head and took the "dragon's hair" away. She said that it was just a piece of black string. Then Akane turned to Ranma to tell him that she got it back, but Ranma yelled "don't look", and ran off. Akane followed Ranma to a shed where Ranma was hiding. Akane went inside and saw Ranma and and his secret! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 71 title: Otokono yabouga tsukiru toki... opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.04.12 The niku_man-men were discussing the situation. They agreed that Ranma was too strong to defeat by force. So they get an an_man with some sleeping powder and put it out into the street to trap Ranma. But Happosai comes and eats the an_man. Then the niku_man-men get mad and attack Happosai. But Happosai easily beats them up. Then the niku_man-men tell Happosai about the secret of the "dragon's hair". Back at school in the shed, Ranma was telling Akane about his hair. When Ranma was training in China, he was very hungry. One day he saw a man running with a bowl of rice soup, followed by another man. Ranma-chan beat up the guy, stole the bowl of rice, and ate it. The Chinese guy said that Ranma-chan was lucky that she was female, after Ranma-chan had finished eating. It happened that the rice soup was made out of the "dragon's hair". It had the strength to grow hair for men, but had no effect on women. But Ranma-chan poured hot water on herself to turn into a boy. Then Ranma's hair started growing wildly. So the Chinese guy gave Ranma a piece of string which was the "dragon's hair" to tie his hair until the effect wore off. Akane cut and tied Ranma's hair for him. Genma was asking Shampoo's great-grandmother about the "dragon's hair". But she said that she can't tell him. On the way home, Genma saw Happosai running and yelling out for the "dragon's hair". Then Genma thought about it for a while (Happosai and the niku_man-men are all bald) and guessed about the secret of the "dragon's hair". On the way home from school, Happosai attacked Ranma to try to get the "dragon's hair". Just as Happosai threw the Happodaikarin when Ranma was down, Genma ran in and caught the firecracker. Then he threw it back at Happosai and started fighting with him. When Ranma accused Genma of wanting the "dragon's hair" too, Genma ran off crying, saying that he can't believe that Ranma would think that about his own father. When Ranma saw Genma by himself in the river bed, Ranma went to him. Then they started to fight as Ranma discovered that Genma was really after the "dragon's hair". After Ranma beat up Genma, Genma tricked Ranma by pretending to cry. Genma then grabbed the "dragon's hair" and ran off. When Ranma tried to go after Genma with his hair growing, Shampoo's great- grandmother stopped him. Then she splashed cold water on Ranma, causing Ranma-chan's hair to stop growing. Then she said that at this pace, Ranma's hair will all grow out within a week. Genma got the "dragon's hair", but he didn't know how to use it. Then Ranma-chan came home and started to fight with Genma to get it back. When Akane and Shampoo's great-grandmother appeared, they told Genma that the "dragon's hair" is good for bald men, but is too strong for healthy boys like Ranma. Then Genma poured hot water on Ranma-chan and felt the hair that grew out wildly from Ranma's head. Then Happosai came and a big fight started to get the "dragon's hair". Finally Happosai got it and ran off. Happosai went back to the niku_man-men and asked them how to use the "dragon's hair". They told Happosai how to prepare the "dragon's hair" soup. Just when Happosai was going to put the "dragon's hair" into the hot soup, Ranma-chan came running by to steal it back. Then Genma appeared and they all started to fight again, but Happosai ended up with it. Then Ranma got mad and started to use his growing hair as a weapon. He flung his hair around and tied up Genma and Happosai. Then Ranma's hair ripped and cut and stopped growing. Ranma had used up all of his hair in the fight! Then Ranma started to run away, but ran back to Happosai to get the "dragon's hair" so he can eat the soup again. But Happosai had dropped the "dragon's hair" and it was somewhere among all of Ranma's hair. Happosai and Genma desperately tried to look for it, but couldn't find it. When Ranma passed out because of shock, Shampoo's great-grandmother tugged on Ranma's hair. Then she said that Ranma's hair didn't get all used up, and that the effect of the "dragon's hair" just wore off. At Nekohanten, Shampoo prepared the rice soup containing the "dragon's hair" for Happosai, Genma, and the niku_man-men. Just then Shampoo's great- grandmother got a call from the man in China saying that the power of the "dragon's hair" had worn off the day before. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 72 title: Linlin Ranran no gyakushuu opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.04.19 Ukyou was walking down the street carrying some okonomiyaki for Ranma. Then someone comes out of the sky and attacks her. Kodachi was feeding Midorigame. Someone comes and attacks her too. On the way home from school Akane gets attacked by Linlin and Ranran. They had come from China because they never received word that Ranma and Shampoo got married. They heard that Ranma had many "fiancees", so they decided to get rid of them. They said that they easily defeated the other two before attacking Akane. Linlin and Ranran told Akane their story about beating up Ukyou and Kodachi. Actually Ukyou and Kodachi did not get beaten up. Then Linlin and Ranran said that it was Akane's turn now. While Akane was fighting against Linlin and Ranran, Ranma comes by and asks Akane what is going on. Akane says that this problem with Shampoo and Linlin and Ranran is none of her business, so she leaves it all to Ranma. When Linlin and Ranran try to go after Akane, Ranma stops them. Then Ranma tells them that he doesn't like Akane. Since Akane had said many times that she is not interested in Ranma, Linlin and Ranran conclude that Ranma likes them. Then Ryouga appears, yelling at Ranma. He tries to attack Ranma, but Linlin and Ranran step in to stop Ryouga. Then Ranma runs away leaving Ryouga to deal with Linlin and Ranran. Linlin and Ranran use the Joketsuzoku secret technique "fushichou dairanbu" to defeat Ryouga. Linlin and Ranran send a letter of challenge to Akane, who was practicing in her yard. They said that they had captured Ranma, and that if Akane loses she must give up on Ranma forever. Then Ryouga struggles into the Tendo yard. He falls in front of Akane. Shampoo's great-grandmother appears and looks at Ryouga's wounds. She says that it is the doings of the "fushichou dairanbu" technique. Then Linlin and Ranran give the "kiss of death" to Akane. Akane goes to meet Linlin and Ranran. They start to fight. Meanwhile, Ranma was eating a feast prepared by Linlin and Ranran behind some bushes. In the fight, Linlin and Ranran use the "fushichou dairanbu" technique. It turns out to be just a wooden model airplane shaped like a bird. The plane crashes and Akane beats up Linlin and Ranran. Linlin and Ranran fix the plane and try again. They start to throw some egg gas bombs at Akane. But Akane grabs a stick and starts hitting the eggs back. One hit the plane and it crashes again. Then the real "fushichou" appears. It turns out to be a giant billboard with a shape of a bird in flames. Linlin and Ranran are scared at the top of the billboard because of the height. Then the billboard starts to fall. It misses everybody, except Soun and Genma. Shampoo's great-grandmother says that Akane is the winner. But Akane says that she never wanted to marry Ranma in the first place. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 73 title: Ryo^ga no PUROPO-SU (Ryo^ga's Proposal) opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.04.26 Bake-Neko (ghost cat) is menaced by a bunch of wolves. Ryo^ga rescues him. Bake-Neko is rather enthusiastic in his thanks, to Ryo^ga's discomfort. He tells Ryo^ga about his desire for a wife. When Ryo^ga expresses reluctance to drop everything for Bake-Neko, Bake-Neko gets angry and takes over Ryo^ga's body. Akane gets a letter from Ryo^ga saying that he has something important to talk with her. Included with the letter is a bunch of cat food. Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga still has Ryo^ga's problem of being lost, and takes him a few months to get to Fu^rinkan High School. When he gets into town, all the dogs recognize the cat and bark at him. When he finally gets to Fu^rinkan High School, he asks some girls if this is where Akane can be found. The girls wonder at Ryo^ga's strange behavior and cat-like manner of speech. Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga goes home with Akane and Ranma. Akane and Ranma also wonder why Ryo^ga is behaving so strangely. Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga sees Panda's tail wiggling and can't resist playing with it as a cat. At dinner, Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga gulps down dinner, especially the shishamo (including eating Kasumi's), like a famished cat, says "excuse me, after eating cats must sleep", and falls asleep immediately afterwards. Everyone is watching a romance on TV. Nabiki yells "go and propose!" at the guy on the TV. Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga wakes up and asks Akane to marry him. In her bedroom, Akane is wondering what Ryo^ga's intentions are and why he asked her to marry him. In his room, Ranma can't sleep because so many cats, including Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga, are on the roof meowing loudly. Next morning, Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga tries to talk to Akane, but Akane says she is busy and runs away. While running to school, she and Ranma talk about Ryo^ga's strange behavior. Ranma says maybe she should accept the proposal. Akane beats him up. In class, Ranma falls asleep because he couldn't get any sleep the night before. The teacher throws an eraser at him and makes him stand outside holding buckets of water including one on his head. On the roof, Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga is having a fantasy dream about marrying Akane. Then there is another dream, of Ryo^ga marrying Akane and gloating over his victory and inheritance of the Tendo^ Do^jo^ over a bruised and beaten Ranma. The bucket of water falls on Ranma and Ranma-chan realizes it was just a nightmare. Ranma-chan meets Akane on the roof. Ranma-chan asks Akane what she's going to do. Before Akane can answer, some other girls appear and Ranma-chan hides. Ranma-chans hangs from a ledge but loses her grip and falls. Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga rubs Genma's back calling him "Akane's father". Soun points out that he's Akane's father. Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga pushes Genma aside and rubs Soun's back instead. A bicycle bells rings outside and Bake-Neko temporarily leaves Ryo^ga's body. Ryo^ga asks "what's going on", but before anything can be straightened out Bake-Neko re-enters Ryo^ga's body. Akane comes home and Bake-Neko/Ryo^ga grabs her, saying "my bride!" Akane screams, and Ranma (bruised from his fall) runs to rescue her. Ranma punches Ryo^ga and Ryo^ga goes flying. Ranma can't understand why Ryo^ga lost so easily. Bake-Neko leaves Ryo^ga's body and appears openly. Now everybody understands what was wrong with Ryo^ga. Ryo^ga gradually comes to his senses and is as angry as everyone else at Bake-Neko. Bake-Neko and Ryo^ga have a long argument where Bake-Neko reveals Ryo^ga's desire for Akane to everyone and says he's helping Ryo^ga. Ryo^ga says "I will win Akane for myself!" Bake-Neko keeps on clobbering Ryo^ga. Finally Ryo^ga beats up Bake-Neko, and being ashamed of having his secret desires revealed in front of everyone, runs away. It starts to rain, and P-chan continues to run away. The next day, Ranma and Akane pass Bake-Neko trying to pass out bells to girls. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 74 title: Genma, iede suru opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.05.03 Soun and Genma were playing shogi. After a move by Soun, Genma called out "wait". But Soun said that it was not allowed. Then they started arguing and Genma walked out. Later during dinner, Genma and Soun fight again, this time over some food. Then Genma says, "Tendo-kun I'm leaving," and pulls Ranma out with him. Sasuke sees Genma and Ranma building a tent in the park. When Ranma says that they should go back, Genma says that Ranma should forget about the Tendo's and that they will start the new training for the Saotome martial arts. Then they start fighting each other. Sasuke goes home to tell Kunou. The next day at school during biology class, they were disecting a frog. When Ranma's stomach grumbled, one of his classmates said, "Don't eat the frog," and everybody laughed. During lunch Ranma was drinking water because he had no lunch nor any money. But Akane came by and brought Ranma a lot of lunch bread. While Ranma was eating with Akane outside, Kunou came by and chased Ranma away, saying that he has no right being with Akane now. Then Kunou gives Akane roses, but Akane kicks Kunou away. That night someone was sneaking into Akane's room. Akane got ready to beat up the intruder, but it turns out to be Ranma. Ranma came to talk about their fathers. He wants to trick both of them into thinking that the other one wants to apologize. Ranma said that he will try to bring his father when he sees a chance. When Ranma was leaving he tried to stand, but since he had been sitting with his legs bent underneath him, he fell. Ranma's hand landed on Akane's breast. Then Akane punched Ranma out the window. The next day, the panda and Ranma-chan (in a cute bunny outfit) were putting on a show in the park trying to make some money. At night, while Ranma and Genma were waiting for the rice to finish cooking in the park, Kodachi appears. Kodachi knocks over the rice and brings them home with her. Meanwhile Kunou goes to Akane's house. He calls Soun "father". He tells Soun that he will marry Akane. When Soun says that Akane has Ranma, Kunou says that Ranma is now living at the Kunou mansion. Ranma fights against Sasuke in the Kunou doujou. When Kodachi asks how he likes the doujou, Ranma says that it is nice, as it was equipped with weights too. Later Ranma and Genma were treated to a feast and a nice hot bath in the Kunou mansion. Kunou was practicing outside while the Tendo family was eating dinner. Kunou saw what the Tendo's were eating and thought how poor they were compared to him and the full course dinners that he eats every meal. Then Kunou told Akane that he will rescue her from this poverty. All of the Tendo's get mad and beat up Kunou. That night Ranma comes to Akane's room and says, "Tomorrow morning, bring your father out to the front gate." The next morning, Ranma jogs with Genma. Ranma runs to the Tendo house. Akane and Soun were standing outside of the front gate. Soun and Genma stood back to back, but they started talking to each other. After a while, it starts becoming an argument. When Kunou appears out of the Tendo yard, Ranma and Akane start to argue. Then Genma pulls Ranma and they leave. Genma and Soun both get a letter of challenge to fight it out. They prepare to fight in the Tendo doujou. They both use their "special" techniques to attack each other. But they both keep missing and everyone who was watching starts getting bored. Then Genma really goes to attack. Soun yells out "wait", but then Kasumi taps her father on the shoulder and says that it is not allowed. Both Genma and Soun laugh and become friends again. Ranma and Akane get mad and beat up their fathers.

The horse was heading toward Ranma, who was walking with an umbrella because it was raining. Ranma threw away the umbrella, jumped up, and kicked the horse. Then the umbrella came down and hit Ranma-chan. After Ranma-chan recovered, she woke up the guy by slapping him around. Then the guy prepared tea for Ranma-chan to thank her. The tea had some paralysis powder in it. Then the guy took Ranma-chan on the horse and went off. Akane saw the guy riding the horse with Ranma-chan tied up in the back. Akane threw her umbrella at the guy, but he deflected it and threw a tea stir back at Akane. Ranma-chan wakes up in an all-white wedding kimono. Then the guy comes. Ranma-chan kicks him and starts walking out. Then an old woman comes and beats up Ranma-chan. She says that Sentarou is the only son in the family with a tradition of kakutou sadou. (martial arts tea ceremony) Sentarou talks with Ranma-chan and says that he does not want to marry someone that was chosen by his grandmother. He says that he wants to choose his own wife. Ranma-chan agrees. Then Sentarou says that there is an omiai coming up. Also he says that the only way that he can marry someone that he chooses is if the girl defeats his grandmother. Sentarou says that he finally found a strong girl in Ranma-chan. Then Sentarou's grandmother comes and says that Ranma-chan is no match for her. Ranma-chan gets mad and says that she will fight her. Then Sentarou's grandmother says that if Ranma-chan wins, Sentarou doesn't have to do the omiai. Sentarou was feeling very happy and saying that he will teach Ranma-chan about kakutou sadou. But Ranma-chan poured hot water on herself. Sentarou was shocked. Just then, Akane comes in looking for Ranma. Sentarou asks Akane to fight his grandmother in place of Ranma. Akane says that the knows about sadou because Kasumi had taught her. But Ranma laughs saying that there's no way Akane can do it. Then Akane tries to prove herself. But she makes a big mess of everything. So Ranma tells Sentarou that he will fight. Sentarou teaches Ranma-chan about kakutou sadou. In kakutou sadou, everything has to be done while in the seiza position. (sitting properly with the legs bent underneath) Then Sentarou's grandmother comes and says that Ranma-chan will be no match for her because she can't even sit in the seiza position. She also says that the match is tomorrow. So Sentarou and Ranma-chan train all night, while fighting each other. The next day the match begins. Ranma-chan chases Sentarou's grandmother outside. Sentarou's grandmother was too strong for Ranma-chan. But Ranma-chan keeps trying to get the old woman. Then Sentarou prepares some tea for Ranma-chan. Ranma-chan was thirsty so she gulped it down. But the tea had some paralysis powder in it again. Sentarou says that he will marry Akane and carries Akane off on his horse. But Akane kicks Sentarou away. After Ranma-chan recovers, she goes back to the house to look for Sentarou's grandmother. She says that she accepts Ranma-chan to be Sentarou's wife and that Ranma-chan will become stronger with more kakutou sadou training. Then when Ranma-chan picks up the hot water to pour on herself, Sentarou comes flying down and destroys the house.

But the kids weren't interested because they would rather play with newer toys or go to preparation school to study. The guys were saying that the world has changed a lot since the days when they were kids. Ranma was watching them. The guys in funny masks challenge Ranma and they fight. Akane comes home from school and nobody was home. A little girl that she had never seen before was playing in the yard with the panda. The girl says that she had come for the purpose of doujou yaburi. Akane didn't want to fight because the girl was so little. But Akane ends up fighting her anyways. The little girl uses a technique called the shitamachi technique. She uses some string and some juggling balls. She beats up Akane as Akane was paralyzed and couldn't move at all. Ranma comes home to see a little girl carrying off the Tendo doujou sign. Inside, Soun, Nabiki, Kasumi, and Genma were all around Akane who was injured. Ranma had defeated the guys that he was fighting, but had learned that the little girl was trying to get the sign from the Tendo doujou. Genma told everyone about the shitamachi technique martial arts. In the past, the common people were not allowed to carry any weapons. So they used ordinary everyday objects as weapons to protect themselves. They were saying that Ranma should go fight them and get the sign back. But Akane wakes up and says that she wants to do it herself. Ranma and Ryouga go to the shitamachi group and ask for a rematch with Akane. The little girl says ok. The rematch is set up for the next day. Kasumi brings some juggling balls to Akane who was training by herself in the doujou. Kasumi starts to juggle the balls in front of Akane to try to help her with her training. The match begins at the shitamachi shrine. The girl uses a lot of the shitamachi techniques, but Akane avoids them all as she was ready for it this time. Then the girl uses the juggling balls technique. She throws the balls (which were actually bombs) at Akane. Akane deflects the balls and defeats up the girl. At the end, Akane and the girl become friends.

Moose also gets one of those tickets and shows it to Shampoo. He says that they can win and go to Jusenkyou. Shampoo pours water on Moose, and takes the ticket away. Ryouga also gets the ticket. While talking to himself, he says that he doesn't want to go, but then he imagines himself with Akane. While Ranma was training in the doujou, Akane comes to give him the ticket. Just then, Shampoo comes crashing in on her bicycle. She tells Ranma that they can go to Jusenkyou by winning the onsen athletic race. Ranma became very happy. Akane gets mad and pours water on Ranma and Shampoo. Ryouga was trying to build up enough courage to ask Akane to enter the race with her. But when he goes to ask Akane, Akane was already gone. Then Moose comes crashing in on his bicycle. Moose was trying to ask Shampoo why she doesn't go with him. But Moose ended up talking to Akane. Akane agrees to enter the race with Moose. Ryouga was walking down the street looking at his ticket. He says out loud, "please go to an onsen with me." Just then, Ukyou was walking by right past Ryouga. She pounds Ryouga, but then looks at the ticket. She becomes happy because she thinks that she can do a lot of okonomiyaki business at the race. There were a lot of people who entered the race. The only rule of the race was that the pair had to run a three legged race until the goal line. Ranma/Shampoo, Moose/Akane, Ryouga/Ukyou, and all of the others started. Ranma/Shampoo and Moose/Akane easily took the lead. Ryouga/Ukyou started in last place as Ryouga started running in the wrong direction. The first stage was on a log through a river. Ranma and Moose started fighting. All of the other groups fell into the river. The second stage was down a water fall. The third stage was through a lake full of alligators. Ryouga/Ukyou caught up at the third stage. Then they all started fighting with each other. Ranma and Akane snuck out and formed a pair and ran off toward the finish line. While Ranma/Akane were running, Ranma said to Akane that he should have paired up with her in the first place. He added that Akane is the best partner. Akane was getting a little embarrassed. Then Ranma finally added that in a martial arts contest, someone who is wild and irokeganai such as Akane is the best partner. Akane pounds Ranma and runs off by herself. The fourth stage was through a sand bath. Akane started walking through by herself. She screamed when she started sinking in the sand. Ranma went to her when he heard the scream, and they started arguing. While they were arguing, Shampoo and Moose passed them. Moose/Shampoo were running toward the goal. Ranma/Akane were following behind. When they got the goal in view, the goal started running away. Ranma/Akane passed Moose/Shampoo. When the guys carrying the goal ran into some bushes, Ranma/Akane were just a couple steps away from victory. Then Ryouga/Ukyou, who had been wandering around lost, come out of the bushes right under the goal sign. Ryouga/Ukyou goes to Atami because Ryouga couldn't find Jusenkyou. Ukyou was happy doing business (her okonomiyaki shop).

All of the students make it into the school yard just as the school bell started ringing. Akane and Ranma were still running to school. Akane goes into the school yard ahead of Ranma. When Ranma went in, the principal pulled out his hair cutters and tried to cut off Ranma's ponytail. But Ranma kicked the principal out of the school yard. Then the gates closed on the principal. All of the students laughed as Ranma commented that the principal shouldn't come to school late. Then the principal started crying. He said that he used to have a son. He said that he loved him, and treated him very nice. (There are some scenes of a little boy being tied up, beaten, etc..) But the son ran away from home three years ago. So the principal said that he didn't want his students to become like that. Then he gave a little present to Ranma. It explodes in Ranma's face just as he was saying thanks. During lunch Kunou was waiting for Sasuke to bring him his special sauce. Just when Sasuke arrived, they saw Ranma chasing the principal around. Sasuke noticed that the principal looked familiar. Later Sasuke opens the large safe in the Kunou mansion. He takes out the picture of Kunou Tatewaki's father, who had left three years ago. (The picture looks just like the principal without the suntan and the coconut tree on his head.) Sasuke says that the principal is Kunou's father. Then Kunou beats up Sasuke, saying that there's no way that the weirdo principal is his father. Then Sasuke tells Kunou to look again. Kunou points out some minor differences between his father and the principal. Then Kunou tells Sasuke to go investigate the whereabouts of his missing father. Sasuke still believes that the principal is Kunou's father. The next day, the principal announces that there will be a martial arts contest among the classes. He says that the winning class will get the scroll that allows them to ignore all of the school regulations. But he says that the class that loses in the final round will have to pay a penalty. That penalty was that the boys had to shave their heads and the girls had to have the bowl haircut. Akane and Ranma were training at home. When Akane asked Nabiki why she wasn't training, Nabiki said that she will let Kunou handle everything for her class. When Kunou was practicing at night, Sasuke came to him with some news about his father. Sasuke told Kunou that he learned that his father had gone over to Hawaii. The martial arts class contest starts. Ranma, Akane, and Ukyou think that they will win easily. Just then a group of people wearing metal armor and carrying weapons come walking into the school yard. The principal announces that this group will enter the contest too. The fierce fighting begins. Ranma's class wins their first round match easily. When the armored class was about to begin its first match, all of the students ask if they are really students in this school. The principal brings out some student identification and says that they are official students of his school. Then Akane picks up a picture that the principal had dropped. It was a picture of a young boy with his head shaved. Ranma said that the boy looked familiar. Then Ranma scribbled on the picture and drew some hair on the boy. They all said that it was Kunou. Then Sasuke comes and says that it was just as he had expected. In the match, the armored guys beat up Kunou and advance to the finals. Then Sasuke goes over to the beaten Kunou and says, "Is this how you treat your own son?" to the principal. The principal was surprised and said that Kunou is not his son. When Sasuke brings out the three year old pictures, the principal says that it is a picture of his son, Tacchy. He also says that his son is only fourteen years old and is not this big. He also says that his son has no hair. Then the students tell the principal that it had been three years already. When the principal puts a bald wig on top of Kunou's head, he recognizes him and says that it is his son, Tacchy. Then the principal tries to cut Kunou's hair to be just like it was three years ago. Kunou doesn't believe that the principal is his father right away. But after all of the students convince him, Kunou accepts that the principal is his real father. Then he tries to beat him up for all of the mistreatment that he had to endure in the past. But the principal gives Kunou a present. It explodes in Kunou's face, and the principal ties him up while the final match was about to begin between Ranma's class and the armored guys. As soon as the match begins, the armored guys beat up everyone except Ranma, Akane, and Ukyou. Then they surround Ranma, Akane, and Ukyou. They start running around them very fast and they throw out Ukyou and Akane. Ranma was wondering why they can move so fast wearing the heavy metal armor. Since Ranma couldn't attack them with the armor, he jumped to try to get out of the circle. But the armored guys kept up with Ranma. Then Ranma headed for the high voltage wires. When the metal armor hit the wires, everyone got a shock. The guys in the armor were defeated and Ranma's class won. When Ranma grabbed the scroll and opened it, they found out that it was a fake one. The principal said that the real one was hidden somewhere and the map was drawn on Kunou's head. Then Kunou and the principal start fighting. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 79 title: Kakutou sadou. Iemoto tatsu! opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.06.07 There was a meeting of the kakutou sadou masters. Daimonji Sentarou's grandmother (the Iemoto) appears and announces that she will stand. All of the kakutou sadou masters were shocked to hear this and runs off. Sentarou rides his wild horse to the Tendo house. When he says to Akane that he will accept her proposal to be his bride, Akane kicks Sentarou in the face. Then Ranma and Akane both ask Sentarou what's up. Sentarou says that there is a crisis in his house. He says that his grandmother will stand. Ranma and Akane ask what will happen. Sentarou just says something bad will happen. Ranma and Akane ask for more details. Then Sentarou explains that nobody had ever seen his grandmother stand. He also says that ever since she said that she will stand, a lot of bad things have been happening in his house. Sentarou asks Akane to come over to his house. Akane agrees, and Ranma says that he will go over too. Ranma-chan and Akane go over to Sentarou's mansion. Sentarou leads them to a dark room and makes them wait. Then Sentarou goes to meet a secret group of old ladies. They ask if Sentarou had brought a girl. They say that when the Iemoto stands, they have to give her a girl as a human sacrifice. Sentarou had mistakenly thought that he was supposed to bring his future bride. But since it wasn't so Sentarou said that he brought Ranma-chan when the old ladies asked him for the girl's name. Ranma-chan and Akane were waiting in the eerie house where there was a lot of chanting going on. Also the house bell was ringing periodically. A special tea ceremony begins. Akane and Ranma-chan also drink the tea. There was some sleeping powder in the one that Ranma-chan drank. R-chan fell asleep right away. Akane tried to prevent them from taking R-chan, but she couldn't because of the paralysis powder in her tea. When Akane woke up, Sentarou was there. Akane said that she will go rescue Ranma-chan. But Sentarou said that it was impossible because there were a lot of guards between them and the room where Ranma-chan was. Also, Sentarou said that when the bell rings 108 times, the Iemoto will stand. Since Akane was still determined to save Ranma-chan, Sentarou said that he will train her. Sentarou starts going through his tea ritual. He spends too much time in the preparation and Akane gets mad. So Akane goes off by herself. Then Sentarou comes and brings his horse. He offers the horse to Akane. When Akane gets on, the horse just sits there and does not go wild. Then Akane says that it's not a wild horse, and that Sentarou is just disliked by the horse. Sentarou sees his chance and jumps on to the horse with Akane. The horse goes wild. Sentarou says that he will run off and elope with Akane. But the horse heads in the direction towards Sentarou's house. The horse runs through all of the guards and crashes into the room next to where Ranma-chan and the Iemoto were. Then the 108th bell rings. Akane opens the sliding doors and runs into the next room. She sees Ranma-chan giving a massage to the Iemoto. The Iemoto then says that she had made up the story so that nobody will see her in this embarrassing position. When Ranma-chan finishes the massage, Ranma-chan and the Iemoto square off to fight. But Sentarou's horse comes crashing in. Then the Iemoto takes Sentarou away and says that she will give special training to him. Ranma-chan and Akane go home. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 80 title: Leotard ha otomeno noroi opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.06.14 At Kodachi's high school, three guys in robes comes to fight the gymnastics club. Kodachi fights them. But they easily defeat her. They steal a red gymnastics ball. Ranma was asking Akane for help with his homework. But Akane told Ranma to do it by himself. Ranma even called Akane, "Akane-chan". Just then Kodachi comes out of the pond in the Tendo yard. She tells Ranma and Akane about the special ball being stolen in her school. She says that she needs Ranma-chan's help. Ranma says that he is a guy and doesn't want to wear a leotard. But Kodachi says that he can dress up like a girl. When Akane gets upset at Ranma and Kodachi arguing in her room, Kodachi leaves. On the way to school Akane's classmates come and ask her for help. They say that someone had come to doujou yaburi the gymnastics club. Ranma and Akane go to see what was happening. They discover that it was three guys dressing in gymnastics clothes. The leader's name was Daitokuji Kimiyasu. They say that they want to take back the last of the three godly gymnastics apparatus (jingi), so that kakutou gymnastics will go back to being a guy's sport instead of a girl's sport. Ranma said that they should just let the girls do it, but then Kimiyasu said that gymnastics is the most beautiful among the martial arts. He then gave a demonstration of his skills. But Ranma and the other girls say that they should leave it to the girls. Then Kunou comes and argues that kendo is the most beautiful martial art. The gymnasts and Kunou's kendo team start to fight. Kimiyasu uses the ribbon to tie up Kunou. Then they ask the girls for the clubs. The girls ask Akane for help. When Ranma interferes, the guy throws the ball that he had stolen from Kodachi's school at Ranma. Ranma catches the ball, but after he twirled it around on his finger, it exploded. Then the girls ask Akane and Ranma-chan to help. The gymnasts agree and say that they will come back for a match the next day. At night, Akane practices in the doujou. She throws the clubs and it lands on Ranma's head. Then Happosai comes and pours water on Ranma and gives Ranma-chan a leotard that he wants her to wear. Akane says that she doesn't need Ranma's help, but she ends up tying herself up with the ribbon. On the way to school, Kodachi catches Ranma with her ribbon. Then she uses some paralysis powder to knock him out. She says that there is no need for Ranma to rush as Akane and Ranma-chan were going to do the fighting. The kakutou gymnastics match begins with only Akane fighting against the male gymnasts. Kimiyasu was too strong for Akane. Meanwhile Kodachi had tied up Ranma to a tree in her yard. But Ranma swings himself away just as Kodachi was telling him that she will go to the match and steal the jingi away from Kimiyasu, just after they defeat Akane and Ranma-chan. Kimiyasu captured Akane in a ring and twirled her out of the ring. But before Akane fell to the ground, Ranma-chan jumped to her and touched her hand to exchange places with her. Kimiyasu argued, but everyone said that the exchange was valid. Then Kimiyasu starts using the godly apparatus to fight against Ranma-chan. The ball had the anger of the young gymnast girls who didn't have boy friends. The ribbon had the tears of the young gymnast girls who didn't have boy friends. The ball chases after Ranma-chan and explodes. The ribbon also chases after Ranma-chan and spits out sticky tears. Then Ranma-chan asked the girls to give her the Fuurinkan High School godly apparatus. The clubs had the violent, last chance feelings of the young gymnast girls who didn't have boy friends. When Ranma-chan held the clubs, lizards, frogs, bugs, snakes, and other ugly creatures came out of it. Then Ranma-chan and Kimiyasu started to fight in mid air. Ranma-chan used the tenshin amaguriken to knock Kimiyasu out of the ring. Just as Ranma-chan won, Kodachi came and tried to steal all of the godly apparatus. But she got caught in the sticky tears. Then Kimiyasu grabbed all three godly apparatus. When all three were together, the ghosts of all of the girls who couldn't get boy friends came out and surrounded the three male gymnasts. When Kodachi saw this (she was still stuck in the tears) she said, "I understand the feelings of girls who could not have a chance at dating. I will get your share of the happiness too with Ranma." The members of the Fuurinkan High School gymnastics team say that they will quit and try to find boy friends now. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 81 title: Kyoufuno konyoku onsen opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.06.21 The Tendo family, Happosai, Ranma, Genma, and Ryouga go to a hotel with an onsen (hot spring). When they got off the bus it began to rain. Ryouga went off ahead by himself because he didn't want Akane to find out about him turning into a pig. After wandering around deep into the woods until it was almost dark, Soun admits that they got lost. But Ryouga showed up with one of the hotel personnel. They came to a very old, broken down house. The hotel manager says that the onsen is good for many ailments and also good for martial arts. Ranma and Ryouga think that the onsen will cure their curses. Happosai wants to go in because he thought that it was an onsen where the men and women go in together. In the men's side, Happosai tries to throw cold water on Ranma. They begin to fight. Eventually Ranma slips on some soap and Happosai splashes him with some cold water. Then Ranma-chan starts chasing Happosai around. In the women's side, Kasumi, Nabiki, and Akane were sitting in the onsen. They heard some noises and began to wonder what was around. Nabiki thought it might be some wild animals, like monkeys. But Kasumi said that it might be bears. Then Kasumi gave Akane a rock and asked her to investigate. Akane threw the rock over the side of the big rocks. She felt like it hit something. Just as Ranma-chan was jumping up to catch Happosai, a rock came flying by and hit her on the head. Ranma-chan landed in the onsen unconscious. Then Happosai thought that there was someone on the other side. He was hoping that it was the women's side. Ryouga reluctantly followed Happosai as he tried to take a peek. But Happosai just saw an empty onsen. Meanwhile Akane, Nabiki, and Kasumi also thought that there was someone on the other side. They started to go take a peek too. But they only saw an empty onsen. The outdoor onsen looked like.. | |******************* | Women | * | | A *********** * A = Akane, Nabiki, Kasumi |--------*** big rocks ***** | | *********** H * H = Happosai, Ryouga, Ranma | Men | * | |******************* Then as Ranma recovered he sensed someone (or something) in the onsen with them. During dinner, Ranma told everyone that he sensed something in the onsen. He said that it didn't feel like a monkey or some animal. At night, Akane was remembering what Ranma had said during dinner. She became scared. Nabiki made Akane even more scared by saying that such weird things do happen at old hotels. Then the lights went out. Akane screamed and hid under the covers. There were some fighting noises, and when the lights came back on, Ranma and Ryouga were holding Happosai. Then Nabiki said that she was going to tell scary stories. In the middle of her story, Soun came in and scared everyone. Then Soun told everyone to go to sleep because it was late. The next morning, Akane went to the onsen by herself. Then she remembered the story that Nabiki told and what Ranma had said. Akane rushed out of the onsen. Just as she was leaving she thought that she saw a shadow in the onsen. Akane told Soun that she wanted to leave this place. But Soun said that they only have one more night. Then Soun and Genma went into the onsen. While they were sitting enjoying the onsen, something came up from behind and attacked them. Ryouga and Ranma went to investigate the onsen, but they couldn't find anything. Then they went to ask the hotel manager. After they had left, Akane arrived at the onsen. While she was looking for Ranma, she spotted something in the onsen. Ryouga and Ranma cornered the manager and asked them about what is in the onsen. He told them that it was Yutaro, the son of the deceased owner of the hotel. Since only old men came to visit this onsen and Yutaro couldn't find a wife, he started to attack the visitors and had mastered the hot bath fighting technique. Then they heard Akane's scream. Ryouga and Ranma ran to the onsen. But before reaching the onsen, Ranma beat up Ryouga and went to the onsen alone. Ranma-chan tried to lure Yutaro to attack her. When Yutaro came, Ranma-chan attacked him and they both went splashing into the water. When Yutaro saw that it was a guy that he was fighting, Yutaro swam away. Then Ranma yelled, "Give Akane back to me." Yutaro attacked Ranma from underwater. Ranma became tired and had to go out of the hot onsen. While Ryouga was wandering around, he stumbled upon Akane, who was all tied up. After saving Akane, Ryouga and Akane went to the onsen to see Ranma and Yutaro fighting. Ranma was about the get attacked when Akane sprayed cold water on him. Yutaro saw that the opponent that he was attacking was a girl, and hesitated a little bit. Ranma-chan saw this opening and beat up Yutaro. When Ranma went to see who it was that he was fighting, they discovered that it was a very "pretty" looking guy. Months later, when the Tendo family visited the hotel again, they see that it had changed from a very old, broken down house to a tall, brand new building. There was also a lot of girls hanging around Yutaro. When Akane said "Hi" to him, he didn't even respond. Akane was mad because she was the one who suggested to Yutaro that he should do a commercial to advertise the hotel.

They enjoyed it very much and they all threw some coins for the frogs. But Ranma didn't have any money. The owner of the frogs said to himself that he won't forget Ranma's face. Genma was sleeping by the river bed. Then frogs attack him. Shampoo was making ramen deliveries on her bicycle. Then some frogs attack her. Shampoo drops her food all over the street. At night Ryouga sleeping in a tent. Then some frogs attack him. The next day, Genma was missing. Ranma said that it was nothing to get worried about. But Soun said that something bad must have happened because Genma didn't come back for dinner or breakfast. Then Cologne came to the Tendo home and said that Shampoo was missing too. Cologne said that she investigated and found out that it must be the work of Kaeru Sennin. She said that he used magic to turn people who had fallen into the springs of Jusenkyou into frogs. They all thought that Ranma will be the next target. Then Ranma said that he won't lose to any frog. That night Ranma was waiting for the Kaeru Sennin to come. Then Akane screamed. When Ranma opened the door to Akane's room, there were three little frogs in there. It looked like frog versions of Genma, Ryouga, Shampoo. Akane wondered why Ryouga was there too. Then someone from outside of Akane's window asked if they want to turn into frogs too. The little man from the frog show appeared. When Ranma asked why, the man said that he wanted revenge against Ranma. Then he tried to throw water on Ranma. He said that it was the water from the spring where a frog drown many years ago. The man said that if Ranma touches this water, he won't turn into a girl any more. Instead he will turn into a frog. Then they start to fight. The fighting continues outside. Then the man lets a lot of frogs loose against Ranma. Ranma fights against the frogs. But Ranma stepped on a little frog. It was Shampoo. Ranma picked up the frog. Then the frog (Shampoo) kissed Ranma. Akane got mad and threw the guy away. While taking a bath, Ranma had a nightmare that he had turned into a frog. Ranma screamed. Akane came in and woke up Ranma. Then the duck came. Ranma grabbed the duck and dunked it into the bath. Moose and Ranma started arguing. Then they both stood up. Akane screamed (because both Moose and Ranma were naked). Moose then told Ranma that he found out where Shampoo and the others were. They were at the Kaerudera (Frog Temple). Ranma, Akane, and Moose go to the Kaerudera. They found the three frogs. While they were wondering if the three frogs were really their friends, Kaeru Sennin came and attacked them. Ranma and Sennin (in the form of a human sized frog) start to fight. When Ranma asked why Sennin wanted revenge against him, Sennin tells his story. When he was training in Jusenkyou, Ranma-chan and the panda came fighting by. Ranma-chan kicked the bamboo pole that the guy was sitting on and he fell into the spring. The spring made him turn into a frog. They start to fight again. The Sennin's tongue catches Ranma and starts to drag him closer. Then Sennin throws the bottle of water at Ranma. Just before the water hits Ranma, Akane dives on top of Ranma and the water hits Akane. With tears in his eyes, Ranma yells, "Don't turn into a frog." But Akane didn't turn into a frog. It was just ordinary water. Then Sennin stops fighting and says that he had a hole in the bottle and spilled all of the water from the spring. So he just wanted to trick Ranma. Shampoo, Genma, and Ryouga were just sleeping in the temple nearby. So the three frogs were just ordinary frogs. Then Ranma punts the Sennin away. Akane checks to see if Ranma's tears were real.. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 83 title: Gyakushuu! Ikarino okonomiyaki opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.07.05 Ranma was eating okonomiyaki at Ucchan's store. Since Ranma was wolfing down the okonomiyaki and eating like a pig, Ukyou was thinking that Ranma wasn't getting enough good food at the Tendo home. Just then Akane came into the store. She got mad because of Ukyou's remark. Then Akane hits Ranma for eating in such a way as to give Ukyou the wrong impression. Then Ukyou says "former fiancee" to Akane. Ukyou says that since she is the real fiancee now, Akane is that former fiancee. Akane says that it doesn't matter. Then Akane orders two okonomiyaki to go. Ranma comments that it's always so empty in the store recently. Ukyou agrees and wonders where all of her regular customers have gone. Then Akane says that maybe everyone is going to that other store that recently opened. Akane takes Ranma and Ukyou to the newly opened crepe store. The store was run by Joe, a master of crepe cooking. When he prepared some crepes for some of Ranma's classmates, they all said that it was delicious. But Ukyou commented that it is just some fancy western gyouza. These classmates were the former regular customers of Ucchan's store. Then Ukyou and Joe started to argue. Ukyou and Joe fought each other with their cooking. Ukyou prepared her okonomiyaki and Joe prepared his crepes. The okonomiyaki and crepes collided in mid air. Ukyou's okonomiyaki all exploded. Then an old monk came by and tasted Ukyou's okonomiyaki. He said that it was delicious, but it lacked fighting spirit. A defeated Ukyou walks away. Ranma tells Ukyou that she doesn't have to worry. But Ukyou says that her okonomiyaki had lost the fighting spirit that it once had, because now she was only cooking the okonomiyaki to please Ranma. So her love for Ranma had taken away the fighting spirit from her okonomiyaki. Then Ukyou starts crying. Ranma tried to comfort Ukyou by saying that her okonomiyaki tastes very good and that it doesn't need any fighting spirit. Then Ukyou asked if it was really true and if Ranma will marry her even if that is all that she can cook. When Ranma couldn't give Ukyou an answer right away, Ukyou runs away. She says that she won't come back until she can cook okonomiyaki that is good enough for Ranma. Akane tells Ranma that he should go after Ukyou, but Ranma doesn't because then he would have to marry her. Ukyou was training in the mountains. She tried and tried, but it was no good. When she was starting to get discouraged, the same monk comes to talk to her. The monk shows Ukyou a 100 year old okonomiyaki that had so much fighting spirit that it was still very fresh. It was an okonomiyaki made by Ukyou's grandfather. Ukyou begs and asks the monk to teach her. Ranma and Akane decide that they have to protect the okonomiyaki store while Ukyou was away. Ranma says that they can't, but Akane throws water on Ranma and she goes to attract some customers. Kunou comes with his kendo team to see Ranma-chan working at the okonomiyaki store. When he sees Akane also, he tells the kendo team that he will treat them to all the okonomiyaki that they can eat. Then Ranma-chan gets psyched up and starts cooking wildly, splattering the batter all over the place. When Ranma-chan was finished, she looks up and sees that Kunou and all of the guys had fainted. Ukyou was still training hard in the mountains. The monk says that she has to cook 108 okonomiyaki every day. Ranma-chan and Akane were sitting alone inside the okonomiyaki store. They were wondering why they had no customers. Akane was puzzled because some of her friends had promised her that they would come. When Akane looks outside, she sees the crepe store right outside of Ucchan's store. Ranma-chan goes out and starts arguing with Joe. Then they agree to have a fight to decide who will leave the city. Ranma-chan and Joe prepare to fight in the ring. When Akane asks Ranma-chan how she can defeat Joe, Ranma-chan says that she remembers all of Ukyou's fighting techniques from the time when Ranma fought Ukyou. The match begins. Ranma-chan uses Ukyou's techniques, but it doesn't work. Joe starts defeating Ranma-chan. Then Joe uses his special technique "golden crepe" to wrap a huge crepe around Ranma-chan. He tells Ranma-chan that the cream inside has explosives in it and that the crepe fabric cannot be torn by human strength. After the explosion, Ranma-chan was very beaten up and Joe tries to land the final blow. But Ukyou comes and deflects the little spatulas that Joe had thrown at Ranma-chan. Ukyou steps into the ring and says that she will show them the result of her special training. Ranma-chan crawls out of the ring as Ukyou and Joe start fighting. Ranma-chan comments that Ukyou had gotten much stronger than before. Joe uses the golden crepe technique on Ukyou. The big crepe wraps around Ukyou. There is a big explosion. Everyone thought that Ukyou had lost, but Ukyou comes walking out of the smoke. Instead of the cream explosives going off, it was Ukyou's fighting spirit that had exploded. Ukyou then hits Joe with her spatula and cooks him into an okonomiyaki. Joe gives up. Later when Ukyou cooks okonomiyaki for Ranma, Ranma says that it tastes the same as before. But Ukyou says that she will cook okonomiyaki for him everyday, at every meal. Akane comments that it will really help out their home budget.

Since Ranma had great athletic and jumping abilities, his performance was standing out. As the time ran out Ranma scored the winning basket. The girls were watching and saying how cool Ranma was. Then one of the girls turned to ask Akane about Ranma. Akane felt embarrassed and couldn't answer. When Ranma was walking off the court, Ukyou comes up and gives him a towel. Akane sees this and gets mad. Shampoo was waiting outside of the locker room. She wanted to go on a date with Ranma. Shampoo had brought a cat so that Ranma will do anything that she says. Then Ukyou spots Shampoo. While Shampoo and Ukyou were arguing, the cat escapes and jumps into the locker room. Ranma sees that cat and runs out of the locker room. He crashes into a tree because he was so scared of the cat. Then Shampoo holds the cat out in front of Ranma and asks him to go on a date with her. Ranma says ok as long as she takes the cat away. Then Ukyou grabs that cat away from Shampoo and also asks Ranma out. Ranma agrees again because he was so scared of the cat. Then Shampoo and Ukyou start fighting and the cat gets away and jumps on Ranma's face. At home, Akane treats Ranma's injuries. Akane and Ranma were arguing. Ranma said that Akane was jealous, but Akane said that she wasn't. Then Akane puts a band-aid on Ranma's nose. Ranma was saying a lot of bad words to Akane. But suddenly he changed. Ranma started saying, "Why didn't I notice until now. Akane you're very cute." When Akane asks Ranma if it's true, Ranma answers yes. Then Soun and Genma appear. They were both very happy that Ranma and Akane were getting very friendly. Ranma was walking around wondering why he had said what he said. He was thinking that he couldn't go tell Akane that he wasn't himself when he said that things that he said. Then Kasumi sees Ranma. Ranma immediately changes when he sees Kasumi. He goes to Kasumi and holds her hand. Then Soun comes walking by and said that he was so happy that Ranma finally accepted Akane. When Kasumi asked Ranma if it was true, Ranma answered, "If that is what you want me to do." Soun gets mad. Ranma runs away, because he didn't understand why he said what he just said. Happosai comes home all beaten up. He goes to the medicine box and looks for his band-aid. He discovers that the box was empty. Shampoo and Ukyou were fighting over Ranma in the park. They decide to call it a draw. Then they see Ranma walking down the street with some other girls. Shampoo grabs Ranma, and asks why he is going out with other girls. Then Ranma says to Shampoo, "Shampoo, you're cute when you're angry." But when Ukyou comes and gets mad at Ranma, Ranma says, "Ukyou is the cutest." Shampoo and Ukyou start arguing again. Then Ranma says, "Let's go on a date," to both of them. But Shampoo and Ukyou start fighting again. When Ukyou turns her attention to Ranma, Shampoo defeats Ukyou. Then Shampoo and Ranma leave together. Shampoo and Ranma were in a row boat in a park. Shampoo said that she was very happy. Then Ranma goes to kiss Shampoo. When Ranma and Shampoo's lips were only a couple inches apart, a large spatula comes flying in between them and splits the boat in two. Shampoo falls into the lake, but Ranma jumped to safety. Ukyou comes and says let's go to Ranma. Ranma asked Shampoo if she was all right, then leaves with Ukyou. The cat (Shampoo) was struggling in the water. At the Tendo home, Nabiki was saying that she saw Ranma going around trying to pick up girls. Both Soun and Genma couldn't believe it. Then Akane comes in. When Akane hears what Nabiki had to say, she goes to check it out for herself. Ranma and Ukyou were walking in the park. Ranma was looking at some girls who were playing tennis. Ukyou gets mad and pulls Ranma's ear. Then Ranma puts his hand on Ukyou's shoulder and says, "I will not look at any other girl from now on. I will only look at you Ucchan. I promise." Then Ukyou forgives Ranma. Ranma goes to get something to drink for Ukyou. While Ukyou was sitting on a bench waiting for Ranma, Shampoo comes. At the vending machine Ranma runs into Akane. When Akane asked Ranma who he was buying the drinks for, Ranma answered, "For you Akane." Then Akane called Ranma a liar and tried hit him. But Ranma caught Akane's hand and said, "You're the only one in my eyes." Just then a tennis ball came rolling by. One of the girls who was playing tennis asked Ranma to get the ball for her. Then Ranma said yes and turned away from Akane. But Soun and Genma appeared in front of Ranma. They asked if the rumors about Ranma trying to pick up girls were true. Before Ranma could say anything Shampoo comes crashing in. She grabs Ranma and asks him to continue their date. Then Ukyou comes and grabs Ranma. She tells everyone that Ranma had promised her earlier that she is the only girl for him. Then Shampoo and Ukyou start to argue again. When they turned to look for Ranma, they saw Ranma holding Nabiki's hand. Ranma says, "Nabiki.." just before Akane goes and slaps Ranma. Akane runs away with tears in her eyes. That night Akane locked herself in her room. She was crying on her desk. Happosai goes to see Ranma, who was tied up and locked up in the doujou. When Happosai sees the band-aid on Ranma's nose, he understands why Ranma was acting the way he was. He says that he wants the fun to continue a little longer. But Shampoo and Ukyou show up. They tie Happosai up in a tree and make him tell them about the secret of the band-aid. Happosai says that he bought the band-aid in China and that it has the power to make people act like a playboy. Then Shampoo and Ukyou both get the idea that now is the perfect chance to get Ranma. Akane goes to untie Ranma. She says that she didn't come to help him, but that she has a question that she wants to ask. "Do you really like somebody else? Is it because I am rude and wild like you say?" Then Ranma puts his hand on Akane's cheek and looks in her eyes. Just when Ranma was starting to say something, Shampoo comes crashing in and takes Ranma away. Ukyou also comes, and tells Akane that if she wants Ranma, she better go after him now, before it is too late. Shampoo and Ranma run into a building that was still under construction. Shampoo asks Ranma if he likes her. When Ranma answers yes, Shampoo brings out a piece of paper for Ranma to sign. Before Ranma could sign it, Ukyou comes and chases Shampoo away. Then Ukyou also brings out a piece of paper for Ranma to sign. But Shampoo hits the paper away from Ukyou. Then Shampoo and Ukyou square off to fight. When Akane asks what is going on, Ukyou tells her about the band-aid on Ranma's nose that was causing him to like any girl. Akane says that it is futile to take advantage of this situation, but Ukyou and Shampoo start to fight anyways. Akane goes between them to try to stop them, but she gets hit. Akane goes flying off of the side of the building. Ranma dives off to grab Akane. Ranma holds Akane as they both crash to the ground several stories below. When Akane gains consciousness, she thinks that Ranma is dead. But Ranma opens his eyes to see Akane's eyes full of tears. His band-aid falls off too. Then Ranma says, "Your sad face is cute too." Then Ukyou and Shampoo tell them that the band-aid had fallen off. Ranma and Akane walk home together. It was very late and the whole family was waiting for them outside. Soun gives them punishment for staying out so late. Ranma will be confined to home for one week. Akane will have no allowance for three months. Then Ranma yells that he hates girls. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 85 title: Kakutou shogiha inochigake opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra ending song: Hinakgeshi aired: 91.07.19 Genma and Soun were playing shogi. When Genma was about to lose, he messed up the shogi pieces and said that he wanted to start over. Then a strange man comes into the Tendo yard. Genma said that he had seen the man somewhere before, but couldn't quite remember him. The man tells Genma that he had played shogi against him last year. The man was one move away from defeating Genma, but Genma tricked the man and turned the table around. The man accepted defeat and went into special training after his wife ran out on him. The man's name was Uragishi Sankichi. Genma and Sankichi decide to play a game of shogi. Sankichi gets an "oote" (checkmate) against Genma. But Genma tricks Sankichi into turning his head again to look at P-chan. While he was looking the other way, Genma turns the shogi table around. Sankichi could not believe that he had lost. Then Sankichi puts on a costume shaped like a shogi piece and says that he will fight Genma in kakutou shogi. Just then Akane and Ranma came home. Sankichi called Akane "Koharu", his wife's name, and said that she looks just like his wife. Akane says that she doesn't and gets mad. When Sankichi tried to hug Akane, Akane punted him away. Later Sankichi and a bunch of guys dressed in black jump into the Tendo yard. They lay out a large shogi board on the Tendo yard and the dining room. Ranma, Akane, Genma, Soun, and Happosai stay out of the boxes in the board because Happosai said that if they step in, they will get attacked. Just then Nabiki came home. When she stepped into the shogi board, a couple of the guys dressed in black ran to her and captured her. They carry Nabiki to Sankichi. When Sankichi called Nabiki "Koharu", Nabiki got mad and kicked him. Then Kasumi came home from shopping. Sankichi went up to Kasumi and called her Koharu too. When he called on his men to capture her, Ranma jumped to Kasumi and carried her off on to the roof. But Kasumi's grocery basket was still on the shogi board. Then a big fight for the groceries begins, as everyone was worried about their dinner. That night everyone argued over one tiny piece of fish. Soun said that it was the fault of Sankichi. Then Sankichi appears and said that they will have a kakutou shogi match the next day. They all go to the shogi temple the next day. Soun, Genma, Ranma, and Akane got ready to fight against all of the men dressed as shogi pieces. However they didn't know the rules. Happosai and Nabiki were watching from outside of the shogi boxes, explaining the events. Ranma goes forward first to fight. But the opponents only moved one square at a time. Happosai explained to Nabiki that the rules stated that those pieces can only move one box at a time. Ranma got tired of waiting for the opponents to come so he sat down. Then two pieces in the back row ran forward to try to hit Ranma. These pieces were different type guys to they can move more than one step at a time. Ranma jumped up to avoid the opponent, and the opponent fell off of the board. But the other opponent ran into Genma and knocked him off. Happosai explained to Nabiki that since Genma had been captured, he must switch to the other side and do whatever they say. Ranma started to attack the opponent's pawn pieces. Then some other pieces started attacking Ranma. Some of them moved diagonally, and others moved horizontally. When Ranma yelled that they were moving illegally, Happosai explained some more of the rules to Nabiki. Then he said that Ranma better hurry up an learn about the legal moves of his opponents. Then Soun and Akane also started to fight. Soun was captured right away. Ranma and Akane kept fighting and beating up their opponents, but there were still many left. When Ranma told Akane that they don't have to worry about the rules for themselves, Akane picked up Ranma by his arms and twirled him around, knocking all of the opponents off of the board. Since there were no more pieces left, Sankichi used Genma and Soun to fight against Ranma. They both attacked Ranma, but Ranma beat them up. Meanwhile, Sankichi captured Akane and put a shogi costume on her. The costume said "loving wife". He called her "Koharu" again, and Akane tried to escape. But Sankichi turned on some magnetic device which attracted Akane's costume to his back. Akane was stuck to Sankichi. When Ranma tried to fight Sankichi, Sankichi turned every time that Ranma threw a punch. Since Ranma's attacks would hit Akane, Ranma couldn't do anything. Then Sankichi called on all of him men to pile on top of Ranma. Just when Ranma was buried in the pile, Koharu climbs on to the shogi board. She tells Sankichi to take off the stupid shogi costume and takes him away. Then Kasumi comes to call everyone for dinner. On the way home, Akane makes Ranma wear Sankichi's shogi costume and carry her. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 86 title: Sasuke no spy daisakusen opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra ending song: Hinakgeshi aired: 91.07.26 At the Kunou mansion Tatewaki called for Sasuke. When Sasuke arrived, he found that a lot of ninjas were in the next room. Tatewaki told Sasuke that they were candidates for the new Kunou oniwaban. Sasuke was going to be fired! But Tatewaki said that he will give Sasuke one last chance. Sasuke went to a public telephone underneath a bridge. Kunou called him and told him is mission. Sasuke had to arrange a date for Tatewaki with "Osageno Onna" within one week. Then the phone explodes. Nabiki, Akane, and Ranma-chan were walking back from a pool. Ranma-chan was complaining because he had to wear a girl's swimsuit. Sasuke was waiting in a post box, which was flooded with his sweat because it was so hot. He had been waiting for Ranma-chan to appear. But Sasuke could not open the post box from inside. At the Tendo home, everyone was eating watermelons. Then Ranma and Genma start to fight. They start to spit watermelon seeds at each other. Sasuke was sneaking around in the Tendo ceiling. He was wondering where Ranma-chan had gone to. Because Nabiki complained, Ranma and Genma go out to the yard to fight. When Sasuke took a peek outside from the ceiling, he saw Ranma and the panda fighting. Then the panda splashed water on Ranma. The panda and Ranma-chan continued fighting. Instead of watching the fighting outside, Sasuke's attention had been taken by the watermelons that were still on the dining room table. He goes down to eat all of the watermelons. After the fight had concluded, Ranma-chan goes to the bath. Sasuke waits outside in the washing machine. He can't decide whether he should take a peek inside the bathroom or not. Then Ranma comes out of the bathroom. Sasuke doesn't understand why Ranma came out. Later Sasuke gets another call from Tatewaki at the same public phone. The time limit for the date with Ranma-chan had been moved to the next day. That night, Sasuke goes over to the Tendo house. He sneaks into the bedroom and sees Ranma-chan sleeping with the panda. Sasuke tried to tie a rope to Ranma-chan. But she kept moving in her sleep, and eventually beat up Sasuke. That night Sasuke was sitting on top of the Tendo roof and thinking about giving up. Then Happosai came up to him. Happosai noticed that something must be wrong at the Kunou household because there were many ninjas sneaking around. Happosai pointed out some of the ninjas that were hiding nearby. Sasuke told Happosai his problem. Happosai told Sasuke not to give up. Then Happosai whispered some advice to Happosai. That night, Sasuke used a long bamboo pole to whisper something to Ranma-chan while she was still sleeping. When Ranma-chan woke up next morning, she was in a trance. She started to walk out of the house. When Kasumi saw her and asked what she was doing, Ranma-chan said that she was going to the park. At the breakfast table, Akane was worried because Ranma wasn't there to eat breakfast. When Kasumi told her that Ranma-chan had gone to the park, Akane went out to run to the park. At the park Ranma-chan was sitting on the bench, still in a trance. Sasuke and Happosai were waiting in the bushes. Sasuke had called Tatewaki and told him that Ranma-chan was waiting in the park. Since Ranma-chan was still wearing her kung fu clothes, Happosai brought a new dress for Ranma-chan. After Sasuke called Ranma-chan to the bushes, Ranma-chan started to take off the kung fu shirt to change clothes. Happosai was starting to lick his lips as Ranma-chan's shirt was coming off. When her left breast popped out into the open, Happosai couldn't wait any longer and dove to lick it. Then Ranma-chan snapped out of the trance. She got mad and punted Happosai away. Then Ranma-chan beat up Sasuke and tried to go home. Akane finally arrived in the park and asked Ranma-chan what she was doing. Ranma-chan told Akane that Happosai and Sasuke put some trance on her. Then Tatewaki arrived at the park. He was so happy that both Ranma-chan and Akane were there. When he tried to hug them, Ranma-chan and Akane both punched Tatewaki away. Later Sasuke was worried that Tatewaki will fire him. But instead he got another assignment. This time the target was Akane. The phone explodes again. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 87 title: Bonjour de gozaimasu opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.08.02 During lunch time, everyone's bread was being stolen by some guy with a cape. Ranma and his friends were walking down the hall when the guy with a cape came by. Ranma jumped to avoid having his bread stolen. Then the guy takes off his cape to present a fancy dining table. Picolet Chardin had invited the Tendo girls for lunch. He said that it was a lunch for his future wife. Ranma throws some bread at Picolet. But the bread disappears in front of his mouth. Picolet was eating the bread very fast. When Ranma threw an eraser, Picolet got mad and challenged Ranma to an eating duel. Before the match started, Picolet said that the loser must pay for the meal. Then Ranma said that he had never lost in anything that had "kakutou" its the name before. The contest begins, but ends right away as Picolet finished all of the dishes very quickly. Picolet had eaten so fast that nobody saw him eat. Ranma tried to stuff food in his mouth, but he couldn't chew and swallow fast enough. Then Picolet showed everyone his big mouth, saying that one needs a mouth that big to win in kakutou dinner. Then he left a bill for 100,000 yen. He also said that he will go visit his future wife later. At home, Akane, Nabiki, and Kasumi asked Soun about Picolet Chardin. Soun and the panda both got scared when they heard that name. Then Soun told them the story of the past. When Soun and Genma were feeling very hungry, they somehow wandered to the Chardin mansion. Then Soun and Genma lost in an eating contest and couldn't pay for the dinner. So they said that they will let their daughter become a wife of the Chardin family. Soun said that the bride must go through a tough training session in eating. Then Ranma-chan came in and said that they shouldn't forget about the other daughter. Ranma-chan said that she will go through the training. Soun, Ranma-chan, and Akane go over to the Chardin mansion. Ranma-chan introduced herself as Tendo Ranma and said that she wanted to go through the training to be Picolet's wife. Picolet was so happy that he "kissed" Ranma-chan. (kiss = putting his big mouth around Ranma-chan's head) Ranma-chan punted Picolet away. Inside, Picolet brought out some little cakes. When Ranma-chan grabbed one to eat, someone threw some forks at her. It was Madame Saint Paul, the one who would be in charge of training Ranma-chan. Madame Saint Paul said that Ranma-chan shouldn't let anyone see her eat. When Ranma-chan tried again, Madame Saint Paul hit her because Ranma-chan tried to grab the food with her hand. Then Picolet gave an example of how to eat "properly". Picolet's long tongue reached out to the food on top of his head, grabbed it, and brought it to his mouth. When Akane was leaving she gave Ranma-chan a little charm which she said that Ranma should open when she is in trouble. Akane was worried to leave Ranma in a house full of monsters. Madame Saint Paul put a steel corset on Ranma-chan. She said that Ranma couldn't take it off until she learns some manners. There was a dinner party for Ranma-chan. Whenever Ranma tried to eat, the other guests would use their long tongues or large mouths and eat the food before Ranma could grab it. At the Tendo home while everyone was eating, they were wondering what kind of French delicacies Ranma was eating. At the Chardin mansion, Ranma-chan was lying in bed starving, because she couldn't eat anything during the party. Then Ranma-chan opened the charm that Akane had given her. There was a little ball inside. Ranma-chan thought that it was candy and ate it. It turned out to be a very strong digestive pill. Ranma-chan was going through the training of Madame Saint Paul. Ranma-chan couldn't eat anything for about one week. Akane sneaks into the Chardin mansion dressed as a maid. She sneaks some food to Ranma-chan. Ranma-chan was so happy to see the food, but she didn't eat it. Just before stuffing it in her mouth, Ranma-chan stopped and said that if she ate it, it would be like admitting defeat. One night, Ranma-chan sleep walks and goes to the kitchen. When she opened the refrigerator, she found a frozen panda inside. Ranma-chan dumped the panda into the hot bath. When Ranma-chan got fed up and jumped into the hot bath so that she can show Picolet her true identity, Ranma screamed because of the steel corset. Akane quickly poured cold water on Ranma. So Ranma had to stay a girl until he could defeat Picolet in kakutou dinner. Soun and the Tendo girls were searching through books to try to find some information that might help Ranma-chan. In the books, all of the masters of kakutou dinner had huge mouths and long tongues. But Akane found a picture of a "normal" person. So there was a chance for Ranma. Ranma-chan was thinking about why she couldn't win. Then Soun appeared in Ranma-chan's room dressed like a maid. Soun said that there was a technique called "gourmet de foie gras" that can help Ranma defeat Picolet. However, he didn't know the secret of the technique because the page was torn out of the book. Later, when Ranma-chan was taking a walk with Picolet, she asked Picolet about the gourmet de foie gras technique. Picolet answered that he could not tell Ranma-chan anything about it. When Picolet told Madame Saint Paul, she was shocked. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 88 title: Dinner ha ring no uede opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.08.09 Ranma-chan saw a nightmare where she and Picolet got married. When she woke up it was all dark around. Then Picolet said good morning, while he had his mouth around Ranma-chan's head. Ranma-chan hits Picolet away. Picolet shows Ranma-chan a present that he got for her. It was a wedding dress. Then Madame Saint Paul shows up and says that there is only one week until the wedding. Madame Saint Paul had brought a lot of watermelons. She tried to shove the watermelon into Ranma-chan's mouth, saying that she must be able to swallow the whole watermelon. But Ranma-chan's mouth was too small. Later Soun, the panda, and Akane were with Ranma-chan eating the sliced watermelons. When Akane asked if Ranma-chan can swallow the watermelon, Ranma-chan said no, but she must find a way to attack and defeat Picolet. She said that she will master the "gourmet de foie gras" technique. Ranma-chan, Genma, and Soun went into the bathroom to perform the special training to master the gourmet de foie gras technique. Ranma-chan told Akane to stay outside and make sure nobody comes in. She also told Akane not to peek inside. Ranma-chan had Genma fill some buckets and pots with cold and hot water. The buckets and pots were tied with a string and swung at Ranma-chan. She was going to aim at and hit only the buckets with cold water inside. It was training to build up her speed and coordination. But she hits some pots with hot water and it turns her into a boy. Since Ranma still had the steel corset on, he screamed very loudly. Akane heard Ranma's screams but couldn't look inside as Soun came out and stopped her from peeking. Ranma-chan kept doing this training secretly for a couple days. One day Madame Saint Paul noticed that she had gained some weight. She also noticed that Ranma-chan's weight had been going down. Madame Saint Paul goes to Picolet and tells him that Ranma-chan has been practicing the gourmet de foie gras technique on her. She then says that she will teach Picolet the method to counter the gourmet de foie gras technique. Ranma-chan goes up to challenge Picolet to a match. Madame Saint Paul then says that there will be a dinner party to test Ranma-chan's bridal training. The match begins. The rule of the match was that the first one to finish eating all of the food wins. Also they must eat without being seen. If they are seen eating, there is a penalty of one additional dish. Ranma-chan uses the gourmet de foie gras technique to finish off the food on her plates. Her pace was faster than Picolet's. But when they both stopped for a break, all of Ranma-chan's food scraps fell down onto the table. The gourmet de foie gras was a technique where you throw your food into the opponent's mouth forcing him to eat your food without noticing it. Since Picolet knew that Ranma-chan was going to use the gourmet de foie gras technique, he was avoiding her food by putting a plate in his mouth. Then Ranma-chan threw another plate into Picolet's mouth to create an opening where she can throw the food. Ranma-chan expertly threw the scraps into Picolet's mouth through the little opening. When Ranma-chan came to the soup, Akane thought that Ranma-chan would lose. But Ranma-chan used her fork to wind up the soup and threw it into Picolet's mouth. At the next stage, when Ranma-chan tried to put the food into Picolet's mouth, Picolet avoided the food by turning his mouth away. When Ranma-chan tried again, Picolet countered by shoving his food into Ranma-chan's mouth. Since Ranma-chan couldn't swallow it, Madame Saint Paul gave Ranma-chan a penalty of another dish. Then Ranma-chan and Picolet tried again. This time Ranma-chan turned her head to avoid Picolet's food. Picolet also turned his mouth away, but Ranma-chan had thrown the food up into the air. When the food fell, Ranma-chan grabbed Picolet's mouth open and the food fell into his mouth. Ranma-chan and Akane pointed out that they saw Picolet eating so there should be a penalty. But Madame Saint Paul had turned her head away. Picolet then threw his fork and knife away and put his face right on top of his dishes. He started sucking his food. This way, Ranma-chan couldn't use the gourmet de foie gras technique. But Ranma-chan started to use the gourmet de foie gras technique while Picolet was finishing his dishes. Ranma-chan was throwing the food into the mouths of the guests who were watching the match. But Madame Saint Paul and Soun noticed that Ranma-chan was getting tired because of the lengthy match. Picolet had only one dish left. Ranma-chan felt that she was getting tired. Just before Picolet could finish the last dish, Ranma-chan hit the dish away. But it started to come back and Picolet opened his mouth very wide to wait for the dish to fly into his mouth. Ranma-chan was tired and confused and didn't know what to do. Then she had an idea. She started eating all of the food herself. Just before the last plate was going to fly into Picolet's mouth, Ranma-chan grabbed the plate and said that she was finished. Ranma-chan wins! Picolet admits defeat and gives Ranma-chan the key to the steel corset. Later Picolet comes to the Tendo home saying that he will exchange the cost of the dinner (of the previous match with Ranma at school) for one of the daughters. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 89 title: Akane, namidano suiei daitokkun opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.08.16 Akane was chosen to be the swimmer for their class in a swimming meet. All of the students wished her well and said that she will win easily because she was so good at sports. Akane didn't tell everyone that she couldn't swim. Ranma told Akane to tell everyone, but she said that it was too late. Ukyou came up to her and said that she will swim in her place. When Ranma and Ukyou joked about Akane not being able to swim, Akane said that she will swim in the race. When Akane was standing by the pool feeling worried, the principal came by and pushed her into the water. Akane struggled in the water and screamed for help. Ranma appeared and saved Akane by throwing in a buoy. Then the principal noticed that Akane couldn't swim and thought up a new school rule saying that people who can't swim will flunk. When Ranma hit the principal over the head with a bench, the principal told Akane that he will teach her how to swim. At home Akane said that she was very sad every summer because even if she got a new bathing suit she couldn't swim. She said that this year she will learn how to swim and also win the swimming race. When Ranma said that she should ask Ukyou to swim for her, Akane got mad and told Ranma not to interfere with her lessons. At school in Kunou and Nabiki's classroom, everyone rushed to the window to peek outside while the teacher was still lecturing. They all heard that Akane was going to be at the pool with her bathing suit. Then Nabiki brought out a lot of pictures of Akane in a bathing suit and said that she will sell them for 1000 yen each. Kunou bought them all. The students started fighting over the pictures. At the pool Akane came with a big rock tied to her back. All of the guys in the school were either hanging around outside of the pool or looking out of their classrooms. Akane asked the principal why she had to have a rock tied to her back. The principal said that in Hawaii that is how they train. Then a big shark jumped out into the air from the pool. When Akane asked what a shark was doing in the pool, the principal said that in Hawaii that is how they train. Then Akane threw the rock at the principal, kicked him into the pool, and told him to give her an example of how it is done. The principal stayed in the water for a long time. Since he wasn't coming up, Akane got worried and jumped into the pool. When Akane went to the bottom of the pool she saw the principal sitting there with an oxygen tank. The principal said that he knew that Akane will follow him. Then the shark come up behind Akane, and the principal said that the training will begin. But Ranma jumped at the shark and kicked it unconscious before it can attack Akane, who was struggling. Then Ranma and the principal started arguing whether Akane will ever be able to swim. Ranma said that there is no way that someone who is so uncoordinated as Akane can swim. The principal said that Akane can swim. Then Akane said that she will try hard. Just then Kunou Tatewaki came and said that he will teach Akane how to swim Japanese style. He dove in to show off his swimming. But everyone was disappointed as Kunou swam doggie style. Just then the shark regained consciousness. It started to swim at Akane who was struggling in the waves. Akane grabbed on to Kunou and they both swam around to avoid the shark. When Ranma tried to jump to kick the shark, the principal brought up a coconut tree and Ranma crashed into the tree. Kunou tried to beat up the shark with his wooden sword, but the shark ate the sword. Then the shark went around chasing Kunou and Akane. When Ranma and Ukyou told Akane to give up, she said that she wanted to swim. She begged the principal to teach her. Then the principal gave Akane a swan suit. It was a very ugly, big swan suit with mechanical legs. The principal pushed Akane into the water and Akane started to drown. Then the principal turned on the remote control legs. The legs were supposed to keep Akane floating, but since Akane's head was in the water and the legs were on top of the water, Akane was drowning. Ranma put on a white bear suit and went in to save Akane. Then Akane asked the principal to teach her again. This time, the principal gave Akane a mermaid suit. But Akane ended up drowning. After Akane recovered, the principal cried and said, "I'm sorry." Akane said to Ukyou, "Please take my place in the swimming race." Then Akane ran off crying. When Akane was outside of the pool area, Ranma jumped in front of her. He said that she shouldn't give up. He started to yell at her for giving up so easily. Then Ukyou and the other classmates came to cheer for her. The principal then brought an inflatable ring for Akane, saying that anyone will be able to swim with a float. Then the principal pushed Akane into the pool. Everyone was disappointed when they saw Akane's legs kicking in the air and Akane's head sinking to the bottom. Ranma noticed that although Akane couldn't swim, her kicking was very strong. In the swimming race, Akane entered wearing four floats around her body. Akane dove in and swam by just kicking, using the four floats to keep her body on top of the water. Akane wins the race. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 90 title: Ryouga! Yuuhini mukatte hashire opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.08.23 Akane comments that Ryouga hasn't been around recently. She also says that P-chan has been gone a while too. In some ranch Ryouga beats up a cow. Then an old man and a young girl comes by and calls Ryouga a cow thief. They throw some farm tools at Ryouga but he deflects them away. Ryouga tried to explain that he is not a cow thief. Then Ryouga steps on the rake and knocks himself out. While the old man and young girl had Ryouga tied up to take him home, three guys on motorcycles came up and circled the old man's horse cart. The old man put up Ryouga as a shield. The three guys started to attack Ryouga. But, Ryouga used the bakusai tenketsu technique to beat them up. When Ryouga was about to leave, the girl came up to him and held him. At the old man's ranch, the old man and young girl (Anna) tell Ryouga about the problems that they have been having on the ranch. They say that Ryouga is their savior. But Ryouga said that he isn't and tries to leave. Ryouga goes around opening doors, but can't find the exit. They all go out to fight against some bad guys. The old man and Anna leave Ryouga to fight against the bad guys as they go steal some vegetables from the garden. Akane gets a postcard from Ryouga saying that he is fighting against a lot of bad people and helping out some kind people. Ryouga was staying with the old man and Anna. His skills were getting better as he was fighting against a lot of bad people who tried to take advantage of Anna and the ranch. One day Anna gets kidnapped. Ryouga goes to fight for her. Before they start fighting Ryouga makes them promise that if he wins, they will never do anything to Anna or her ranch. Ryouga fights against a master of western martial arts. Ryouga wins. Anna was so happy that she goes up to Ryouga and cries on his shoulder. When Ryouga was alone, he was thinking about Anna. He thought that nobody had ever loved him that much before and he shouldn't let this chance go away. But Ryouga was still thinking about Akane. Then Anna comes up to Ryouga and says that she is very happy. Also she says that she wants Ryouga to stay with them forever. Then Ryouga stands up and says, "Sorry, I have to go." Ryouga runs away. Anna crys out for him, but Ryouga doesn't look back. Ryouga runs into a well and turns into P-chan. P-chan wanders back to the city and was walking down the street when Akane calls for him. His eyes was full of tears when he jumped up to Akane's arms. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 91 title: Yumeno nakahe opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.08.30 Kasumi was cooking some beans. Happosai wanted to have a little taste. But Kasumi told him that it wasn't ready. Then Kasumi told him to take a nap or something. Happosai went to the dining room and fell asleep. Happosai had a nice dream. He was on a trip. He saw a dead body (skull). He buried it. That night, a beautiful ghost appeared. The ghost offered him some sake. Happosai was having a great time with the ghost. Ranma saw Happosai dreaming. Then Ranma fell asleep next to Happosai. Ranma had a nice dream too. Ranma beat up Happosai. Akane came by and saw Happosai and Ranma dreaming. Then Akane fell asleep and had a dream. Akane cooked some food for Ranma. Ranma said that it was delicious and complimented her. Then Akane went to the kitchen to cook some more. But when she opened the refrigerator, a lot of girl's underwear came out. Then Happosai's voice said that she was in his dream. In Ranma's dream, after Ranma beat up Happosai, Happosai becomes big and beats up Ranma. Then Ranma and Akane both appear in Happosai's dream. They argued against Happosai, but he said that since he slept first, it was his dream. Ranma tried to beat up Happosai, but Happosai easily took care of Ranma. Then a lot of school girls gathered around Happosai. At home, Akane spotted her underwear in Happosai's closet. Akane got mad, but it was Happosai's dream. Then Happosai dumped water on Ranma and told Ranma-chan to wear a new bra. Akane dumped hot water on Ranma-chan, but she didn't turn back into a boy. It was because this was Happosai's dream. Akane and Ranma-chan tried to run away, but they couldn't get away. Then in the middle of the street they saw a sign pointing to Nabiki's dream. Since they thought anything would be better than Happosai's dream, they went to take a look. They saw a lot of toll gates. When Ranma-chan tried to go over without paying, Nabiki appeared. Then Akane asked Nabiki how they can get out. Nabiki sold her the information for 3000 yen. Ranma-chan and Akane ran out, but they ended up in Happosai's dream. Nabiki was there too and said that she decided to stay with Happosai in his dream. Then Nabiki went to massage Happosai. Nabiki also fed Happosai and gave him some tea. She said that since this was his dream, there's nothing they can do about it. Then Ranma-chan appeared wearing a sexy bathing suit and told Happosai that she will do anything for him if he wakes up. Just then a lot of school girls came running to Happosai. Happosai said that he wants to stay in his dream. Akane paid Nabiki another 3000 yen to try to find out how to get out of the dream. But Nabiki said that she didn't know. When Akane asked for for money back, Nabiki said that all she knows is that if someone knocked Happosai out, he will wake up and the dream will end. Ranma-chan tried and tried, but she was no match for Happosai. Then Akane hit Happosai with a big hammer and knocked him out. They all started to fade out of the dream. But just at the last moment, they all appeared again. Genma and Soun were playing shogi besides Happosai, Ranma, Akane, and Nabiki who were sleeping. As Soun made a good move, Genma falls asleep. Then Soun also fell asleep. Both Genma and Soun appeared in Happosai's dream. When Genma and Soun tried to run away, they ran into a large rock. Happosai said that since it was his dream, he can do anything. Then Genma and Soun went to Happosai's side and started to give him a massage. All of a sudden, Ranma-chan popped out of Happosai's dream. In the real world, Ranma had gotten up. He tried to shake up Happosai to wake him up, but Happosai's pipe hit Ranma and Ranma went back into Happosai's dream. Then Genma popped out of Happosai's dream. Genma had been sleeping in a sitting position and had fallen down. But Genma falls asleep again after cheating (turning the shogi board around). Back in Happosai's dream, Ranma-chan paid Nabiki 500 yen for some more advice on how to get out of the dream. Nabiki said that it doesn't necessarily have to be Happosai that gets knocked out. Then Akane immediate tried to hit Ranma-chan. But Ranma-chan avoided the hammer because it would hurt. Then Genma and Soun start to beat up Happosai. They said that if Happosai fights back and knocks them out, they can wake up and go out of the dream. Then Ranma-chan also joins in. After taking a lot of beating, Happosai gets mad and uses the Happo-daikarin. Genma, Soun, and Ranma-chan thought that they can get knocked out. But after the explosion, they were still there. Then Happosai said that since this was his dream he won't let them get knocked out. Happosai keeps using his Happo-daikarin against Genma, Soun, and Ranma-chan. Then just before he can use the final daikarin, Kasumi comes and wakes them up, saying that the beans were ready. Happosai wakes up and said that he had a nice dream. Ranma, Akane, Genma, and Soun punt Happosai. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 92 title: Ranma ha Nabiki no iinazuke? opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.09.06 Akane was chasing Happosai around because he had stolen Akane's underwear. Akane grabbed a soy sauce bottle and threw it at Happosai. But Happosai ducked out of the way and the bottle flew past him, toward the door. Just then, Nabiki opened the door and came in. The bottle hit Nabiki in the shoulder and the soy sauce splashed over her shirt. Nabiki calmly said, "Too bad. This was brand new." Then Akane goes up to Nabiki and apologizes. Nabiki picked up the soy sauce bottle and said, "Oh, you threw it." Kasumi came by and said, "Oh no. Soy sauce stains don't come off very easily." "Yeah, and this is a white shirt too," Nabiki added as Akane apologized again. "Don't worry about it," Nabiki said as she took off the shirt and gave it to Akane. "I shouldn't have borrowed it without asking in the first place." Then Nabiki walked away. Later, since Akane was complaining too much Nabiki opens up her closet full of clothes and tells Akane that she will give her anything that she wants. Akane was so happy that she started looking at the clothes in he sister's closet. Then Akane picks out a dress that she likes. But she notices that it is her own, that Nabiki had borrowed. Akane starts going through all of Nabiki's stuff picking out her things. Nabiki says that she was just borrowing them. Then Ranma comes in to return a towel that he borrowed from Nabiki. Ranma said that it had become dirty and torn up because he was wiping the doujou with it. Then Nabiki says that it is ok to throw it away. But Akane takes that towel away from Ranma and says that it is hers. When Ranma made a remark about the rabbit that Akane had sewn onto the towel, Akane punched Ranma. Later while they were eating, Nabiki apologized to Ranma about Akane. Then Nabiki and Akane started arguing. When Akane asked Ranma which side he was on, Ranma said, "It's lucky that the clothes that fit you the best didn't get dirty." Then Akane lightened up and wondered which one of her cute dresses Ranma was talking about. Ranma continued, "A judo uniform is the only clothes that fit you anyways, so you shouldn't worry about ten or twenty dresses." Akane picked up the table and hit Ranma on the head. Later Kasumi talked to Ranma and said that he should try to cheer up Akane. Soun and Nabiki also came and told Ranma that he should do it because he is her iinazuke. Akane was on the upstairs balcony still feeling upset. When Ranma came Akane accused him of teaming up with Nabiki. But Ranma said that he didn't. Nabiki also appeared and said that they both said bad things about Akane, but they did it independently. Then Akane got mad and punched the wooden balcony. The wood shattered, and they all fell. When Akane was falling, she tried to land on a branch, but the branch broke and Akane fell to the ground. Then Akane remembered that Nabiki, who didn't know how to land, was on the balcony too. When Akane turned and called out for Nabiki, Ranma, who was holding Nabiki in his arms, jumped from the tree to the ground. Nabiki thanked Ranma for saving her. But when Nabiki saw Akane looking at them, she said that this situation isn't very good because Ranma left his iinazuke Akane alone and saved her instead. But Ranma said that he had no choice because Nabiki is a normal weak girl, unlike Akane. Then Akane went up to Ranma, slapped him, and said, "Why don't you be Nabiki's iinazuke." Akane turned and started walking away. Ranma said, "What are you talking about?" Nabiki said, "Are you going to give him to me? I'll take him." Akane turned around. "I'm not borrowing him. I'm taking him." Nabiki grabbed Ranma's arm and said, "I'm not giving him back." Akane then said, "I'll give him to you." Kasumi told Akane to make up with Ranma. Soun said that it didn't matter to him which one of the girls married Ranma, but asked Akane if it was really ok this way. Then Kasumi told Soun that Nabiki said that she wanted to sell the doujou and play around. When Soun heard this he quickly went up to Akane and told her to make up with Ranma. Before going to sleep, Akane was wondering about the situation. Then she decides to talk it over with Nabiki. Akane walked over to Nabiki's room. Just before she was going to knock on the door, she heard Ranma's voice coming from inside Nabiki's room. Ranma said to Nabiki, "Make up with Akane." Nabiki said, "Ranma, you must really like Akane." Akane was listening by the door. Nabiki then became serious and said, "Ranma, from a long time ago, I liked you." Ranma crashed to the ground because of the shock. The next day at school, when Ranma asked Nabiki if she was playing around with him, Nabiki said, "You don't like older women? You hate me." Then she pretended like she wanted to cry. Ranma said that he doesn't hate Nabiki. Then Nabiki said that she was happy. When Ranma said, "I can't be your iinazuke," Nabiki ran off saying that she can't stay in the same house if Ranma is not her iinazuke. Then Ranma crouched by a tree to wonder what he should do. But Nabiki started to sell nude pictures of Ranma-chan to the male students. Akane was feeling very sad about the situation at home. She was thinking that she couldn't go back to the home where Nabiki and Ranma were the iinazuke. Then Nabiki came up to Akane. She offered to sell Ranma back to Akane for 2000 yen. But Akane said that she doesn't want him because she can't express her feelings and say that she likes Ranma like Nabiki. Akane had tears in her eyes as she tried to give up on Ranma. Akane and Nabiki went to a store. Nabiki told Akane that she was only joking when she said to Ranma that she liked him. But Akane doesn't believe her. Nabiki then says that she will sell Ranma for 1500 yen. Akane says that she doesn't want him any more and Nabiki lowers the price to 980 yen. But Akane still doesn't buy him back. Then Nabiki tells Akane that she will regret it. When Ranma comes home at night, Nabiki greets him by hugging him. She tells him that she will wash his back for him in the bath. Akane sees this and gets mad. But she controls herself and runs away. Later at dinner, Nabiki feeds Ranma. Akane was burning up with anger, but doesn't do anything. At night, Akane was sitting alone in her room. She hears Nabiki's voice in the next room. "Come in Ranma." Akane goes to put her ear next to the wall. She hears sounds of Ranma taking advantage of Nabiki. Akane gets mad and rushes into Nabiki's room. Nabiki was just sitting on her bed waiting for Akane. Nabiki had tricked Akane. Nabiki then asks 5000 yen for Ranma, but Akane says that she will not pay anything for Ranma. The next day on her way to school, Akane decides that she will make up with Ranma. She was planning on apologizing. But Ranma walks into class with Nabiki holding onto his arm. Akane gets mad and decides not to apologize to Ranma. Later, Nabiki calls Ranma to the roof of the school. She says that she will break up with him so that he can go back to Akane, if he pays her 5000 yen. But Ranma says that he has no intention of breaking up. Then Nabiki asks Ranma to kiss her. Nabiki says that she wants to see proof. Akane was secretly watching this. When Ranma didn't kiss her, Nabiki pretends to cry. Then she raises her price to 6000 yen. But Ranma had already walked away. At home Kasumi tells Nabiki to give Ranma back to Akane. Nabiki says that she wants to, but it's very hard. Nabiki also says that she's only joking about liking Ranma. When Kasumi says that Ranma will get mad if he finds out, Nabiki says that she's not afraid of Ranma. Ranma was listening to this conversation as he was crawling along the wall. Later Ranma goes up to Nabiki's room and asks her out on a date. Nabiki agrees but doesn't want to get too much involved with Ranma. So after Ranma leaves, Nabiki goes to Akane's room to tell her that Ranma wants to go out on a date with her. Akane was very happy that she can finally make up with Ranma. Akane dresses up and goes out to the park to wait for Ranma. Ranma was at a flower shop buying roses. He yells that he will get back at Nabiki. Nabiki rides by on her bike and sees Ranma. She finds out that Ranma's date was a trap, but since she isn't going she has nothing to worry about. Nabiki also sees a very cheerful Akane walking toward the park. Nabiki goes to the park before Akane and rides Ranma over on her bike to protect her little sister. Then Nabiki makes Ranma chase her around the park. Nabiki goes to try to hide in a large maze made out of bushes. Ranma goes running after her. Akane hears Ranma's voice and goes to see what is going on. Nabiki runs around in the maze. Ranma chases after her. Akane goes into the maze without knowing what is going on. Nabiki runs past Akane. Ranma senses someone on the other side of the bushes and puts his hand through the bushes to grab her. Ranma thinks that he has caught Nabiki. Ranma tries to pull the girl through the bushes. Nabiki yells to Ranma that he has Akane. But Ranma yells that he won't be tricked any more. Ranma pulls the girl through the bushes, hugs her very tightly, and yells, "I love you." Then Ranma looks at the girl that he has in his arms. It was Akane. Ranma was shocked. Before he can deny it, Nabiki comes and says that she heard everything. Then she leaves Ranma and Akane and tells them to stay friends.

After the phone conversation was over, Kasumi goes back to the kitchen. Kasumi looks at the kitchen table and screams. Later the Tendo family gets together. Soun says that somebody ate all of the takoyaki that Kasumi bought for everyone. The first witness was Kasumi. Kasumi said, "After a 3 minute phone call, I returned to the kitchen and the takoyaki was gone. Also the outside door in the kitchen was partly open. There was a knocked over cup on the table and the water dripping." Nabiki says that she saw Ranma in the kitchen. Nabiki said, "When I came home, I saw Ranma-chan in the kitchen. Then Ranma-chan ran away. When I went into the kitchen, I saw an empty takoyaki box." Ranma then yelled out loud that he just had a drink of water. Then Nabiki asked why Ranma ran away. Ranma said that when he went in, the takoyaki box was already empty. Soun then made up a hypothetical case. Nabiki went into the kitchen and ate all the takoyaki. She heard Ranma-chan coming. Nabiki ran outside. Ranma-chan came in and found the empty box. Then Nabiki said that she saved the best part for last. She brought out the wrapper of the takoyaki box. Then Nabiki presented her hypothetical case. Ranma came into the kitchen for a drink. Ranma saw the takoyaki. Ranma ate the takoyaki, but was still hungry. So Ranma poured water on himself to turn into a girl, who has a smaller stomach. When everyone picked on Ranma, Ranma told what he saw. After training, Ranma washed himself in the bath. When she was walking down the hall, Ranma-chan saw Akane running up the stairs with something in her mouth. Ranma-chan then went into the kitchen and spotted the empty box. Then Happosai told his story. Happosai heard some noise in the kitchen after the phone rang. Happosai saw Soun walking out of the kitchen. Sou immediately said that he didn't do it. Then Happosai brought out a toothpick with some aonori on it, saying that he picked it up in the kitchen after Soun left. But Soun yelled that it wasn't him. Then Akane pointed out that there was some aonori on Happosai's lips. They all grabbed Happosai and tied him up. Happosai then gave his story, "Aonori densetsu". There was a monster that goes around stealing things with aonori on it. Then he goes around putting aonori on other people's mouths, so they get blamed for it. Happosai said that that was the case now. When Genma was trying to beat up Happosai, Nabiki spotted aonori on Genma's teeth. They tied up Genma too. Genma then gave his story, which was just another monster putting aonori on people's teeth. Then they hear some noise on the ceiling. It was Sasuke. Then they all start to accuse Sasuke of stealing the takoyaki. They say they found Sasuke's chopstick case in the kitchen and try to make Sasuke confess. Sasuke says that he doesn't know what they were talking about. Then Sasuke tells his story. He was in the ceiling watching everything. He brings out 6 pictures that he had taken. It was pictures of Soun, Genma, Ranma, Akane, Nabiki, and Happosai each eating one takoyaki. After seeing the pictures, they all leave, except Kasumi.

Ranma buys it and a container for 3000 yen. Back at the Tendo doujou, Ranma tries out the smoke medicine. One who breathes in the smoke will have his shadow move. When it didn't work immediately, Akane said that it's a fake. But after a while Ranma's shadow started to move by itself.

She tells Kasumi that she can't be a guinea pig for Akane's experiments. Akane makes bento for everyone. This was the third day that she woke up early and tried to make bentos for everyone. Akane hands the bento to Soun and Genma, who unwillingly take it. Akane looks for Nabiki, but Kasumi tells her that she already went to school. Ranma was trying to sneak away to school, but Soun and Genma spot him. Ranma fights hard against Soun and Genma, who were trying to hold him down, to avoid the bento that Akane was trying to put into his hands. Ranma finally breaks free and runs away to school. A weird, gloomy looking student was walking to school. He picks up a flower. He starts picking the petals and saying, "can make friends" and "can't make friends". He gets to "can't" and there was one petal left. He was so happy because the last one was "can". Then Ranma comes and runs over the boy. After Ranma helped the boy up, the boy looks at the flower and sees that there were no more petals left. Then Ranma runs off as he heard Akane's voice. Akane comes and steps all over the boy, while looking around for Ranma. When she notices that she has stepped on something, Akane helps him and walks to school with him. At the gate, the boy brings out a straw figure and tries to give it to Akane as a present. Akane refuses. Just then some of Akane's friends come. They look at the figure and say it is cute. The boy gives them some of the figures. During class Gosunkugi Hikaru gets introduced as a new student. It was the student that Ranma had run over earlier. During lunch, Akane tries to give the bento that she made to Ranma. But Ranma refuses. So Akane tries to give the lunch to Gosunkugi. Gosunkugi was so happy. Just before Gosunkugi can take the bento from Akane, Ranma comes and takes the bento away. Ranma says to Akane, "You can't let normal people eat your food." Then Ranma tells Gosunkugi that he can't eat Akane's cooking. Akane gets mad and tries to take the bento away from Ranma. They start pulling it toward each other, while arguing. Then the bento spills all over Gosunkugi. Akane gets mad and runs away. Later during gym class, Gosunkugi was staring at Akane. He was thinking to himself. "You're an iinazuke to someone that violent, I want to save you from hell." Since Gosunkugi was standing in the middle of the soccer field, Ranma runs over him, followed by a lot of other students. Gosunkugi determines that he is going to get back at Ranma for everything that Ranma had done to him. He digs a pit in the school grounds and tries to trap Ranma. On the way home, Akane was mad and didn't want to talk to Ranma. Ranma runs up to Akane and tries to apologize for spilling the bento. But Akane just keeps walking. Then Ranma stops and grabs Akane. Akane blushes, but Ranma says, "Look in front of you when you walk," and points to the badly covered trap that Gosunkugi had made. All of the other students gathered around and looked at the trap. They all wondered who would be dumb enough to get caught. Then Kunou comes walking by. He thanks everyone for making way for him. Then Kunou falls into the trap. When Akane got home, she saw some empty bowls of food in the entrance. Soun and Genma had ordered out for lunch. When Soun and Genma try to make up an excuse, Akane says that it is ok and that she will not try to cook any more. The next day, Nabiki comes to the breakfast table feeling very happy. She said that she finally can sleep and didn't have to hurry to escape from Akane's bento. Then Akane walks by and says that she doesn't want any breakfast. On the way to school, Ranma spotted Akane looking at a cooking book at the bookstore. Gosunkugi tries to catch Ranma on the way to school, but fails. Ranma surprises Gosunkugi by sneaking up on him. Then Gosunkugi runs away from Ranma, only to end up facing a mean dog. Gosunkugi gets beaten up by the dog. During lunch Gosunkugi calls Ranma to the gymnasium. Gosunkugi tries another contraption to get back at Ranma. Ranma tries to explain how bad Akane's food is. But Akane was there and gets mad at Ranma. Kunou was also there too. Kunou tries to attack Gosunkugi, but gets caught in his traps. On the way home Ranma buys the cooking book that Akane was looking at before. At home, Akane was putting away all of her cooking books. Then Ranma comes and gives Akane the book. Ranma also marked the one that he wanted Akane to make. Akane was so happy that she went and tried to make it right away. The next day at school, Ranma and Kunou get messages from Akane to go to the roof of the school for lunch. When they get there, they found Gosunkugi waiting for them, dressed as Akane. Both Ranma and Kunou notice that it is Gosunkugi right away. Gosunkugi says that he wants them to fight for the bento. Both Ranma and Kunou say that they will let the other one have it and they end up arguing. Then Kunou goes to attack Gosunkugi. Kunou slips and goes crashing into the fence. Then Gosunkugi tries to get Ranma with lightning. But it gets him. Ranma and Akane go visit Gosunkugi, who was in the hospital. When Gosunkugi regains consciousness, Akane gives him her bento. As they were leaving, Ranma gives him some stomach medicine. The next day Gosunkugi was absent from school. Gosunkugi had eaten all of Akane's bento.

Ranma climbs up a tree to get away and finds a letter on the branches. He couldn't read it because of the fancy writing, so he threw it to Akane. Akane said that it was somebody's letter so she shouldn't read it. Then a stranger comes and reads it. Lovely, lovely Akane. This autumn season probably made me write this love letter. Osageno onna has a very nice body and is very nice, but Akane I really need you. I love you Akane. All of the students gathered around. They wanted to hear more. They didn't know who wrote it. But Ranma knew right away who it was. Then Kunou came and took the letter away from the guy. Kunou started to attack Ranma. Ranma said that he didn't read it. Then the stranger asks Kunou for a kakutou shodou match. The stranger was Jikeiin Soutatsu, a master of kakutou shodou. The rule of the match was that they had to write the kanji character "ei", and beat up the opponent, before the opponent could do the same. Soutatsu easily beat up Kunou. Then Ranma says that he wants to fight. But Soutatsu asks Ranma to write a letter of challenge and hands him a paper and brush. Ranma couldn't remember how to write the kanji. Then the guy says that he won't fight against someone who can't write well. At the Tendo home, Soun and Genma were looking at an ad for the new kakutou shodou doujou that opened nearby. They were mad that a doujou had opened up so close to theirs. Ranma and Akane were there too. Akane said that Kasumi and Nabiki were both good at handwriting. When Ranma asked Akane about herself, Akane avoided the question and said that her father wrote the doujou sign that was outside. Just then the Soutatsu came to the Tendo home. He said that he wanted to fight against the one who wrote the sign outside. When Ranma went to greet Soutatsu, Soutatsu said that Ranma couldn't have written that sign. Then Soun called for Genma. But the panda appeared with a sign saying that he's a peace loving panda. Soutatsu saw the panda's writing and started to crack up. He ran out right away. When Ranma asked Shampoo's great-grandma about kakutou shodou, she said that she had never heard about it. Then Shampoo just finished writing up the menu. When Ranma said that Shampoo's handwriting was good, Shampoo said that the handwriting reflects the writer's heart. Shampoo also told Ranma that he can practice his handwriting by writing love letters to her. At Ucchan's stores, Ukyou told Ranma that martial artists are very good at handwriting. Then Ukyou created and okonomiyaki with the character "ei" on it and gave it to Ranma. Soutatsu beats up somebody in the middle of the street. A lot of people were gathered around. Soutatsu then started to pass out advertisements for his school. Then a lot of school girls gathered around and asked to join. Ranma tried to ask Soutatsu for a fight, but Soutatsu said that Ranma was way below his level and didn't want to fight. Ranma practiced a lot in the Tendo doujou trying to write the letter of challenge. Akane kept yelling at him because Ranma's writing was so awful. When Ranma thought that he had written well, Soutatsu comes and rips the paper, saying he doesn't have time to deal with Ranma. Soutatsu said that there is no martial artist with handwriting as bad as Ranma. Later Ranma tried all night, but Ranma couldn't do it. Then he gave up. Just when Ranma was saying that it would be much better fighting with Ryouga, a beaten up Ryouga came through the door of the doujou. Ryouga had fought with Soutatsu and lost. When Ranma looked at Ryouga's letter of challenge expecting it to be very sloppy, Ranma was shocked. Ryouga's writing was very good. Ranma couldn't believe that Ryouga was better than him. Ranma started to wonder if Ryouga was stronger than him. Then Akane got a bucket of water and splashed it on Ryouga because he had ink all over him. Ranma started practicing writing right away. Akane turned to look at Ranma who had become very intense. When she turned back to look at Ryouga, Ryouga was gone. P-chan was there shaking the water off of himself. After practicing for a long time, Ranma goes to Soutatsu to ask him to fight again. Soutatsu looks at the sloppy marks on the paper that Ranma called a letter of challenge. He couldn't stand looking at it any more so he accepted Ranma's challenge. The match between Ranma and Soutatsu began. Since the rule was to write the simple hiragana "iroha", Ranma was very happy. A lot of the school girls were cheering for Soutatsu. While Ranma and Soutatsu were fighting one of the pieces that Soutatsu threw at Ranma bounced and hit Happosai, who was sleeping in the grass because he was drunk. When Happosai came up to Ranma and Soutatsu, he asked them what they were doing. Soutatsu told Happosai that they were having a contest to write "iroha". Then Happosai, who was still drunk, started to write "iroha" with his hips. Soutatsu started to crack up and couldn't control himself. Meanwhile Ranma started writing "iroha". Just before Ranma finished, Soutatsu came and tried to stop Ranma, but he couldn't control his laughter as Happosai continued his act. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 98 title: Fuurinkan Koukou kageno don toujou opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.10.18 At school Ranma goes to the second school store (daini koubaibu) because the regular store was very crowded and Ranma couldn't buy any bread. Ranma sees the sign and goes in. The place was very dirty and it didn't look like anybody had been inside in a long time. Just as Ranma was going to leave, an eerie old man comes and asks Ranma what he wants. When Ranma says he wants some bread, the old man points to a tray with a lot of rotten old bread in it. Ranma's classmates buy stuff from the second store. They are all upset because everything was so old. Akane says that they should go ask for refunds. But Nabiki comes and tells them that they shouldn't go there. She says that there are stories of evil curses. Then Kunou comes along and says that he is not afraid of any evil curses. He runs in, but then comes running out right away. Then Akane says that she is not scared and runs in. Ranma goes in after her. When Ranma goes into the store, Ranma sees Akane giving a massage to the old man. Then Kunou comes in and tries to beat up the old man. But the old man jumps out of the way. He then goes on to say how bad the men of Fuurikan High School have become. The old man turns out to be the school observer (goikenban) of Fuurinkan High School, appointed by the first principal. Kunou immediately bows to him. When Ranma doesn't, the old man gets mad. He shows Ranma some pictures of him turning into Ranma-chan. Ranma gets mad and starts to go after the old man. But the old man escapes through a secret door. Ranma goes after him. Ranma goes around the school grounds chasing the old man, but the old man keeps avoiding Ranma by going through secret doors all over the place. Later the old man tells Ranma, Akane, and Kunou about the history of the Fuurinkan High School. While the old man was talking, the principal came sneaking by looking for something. When Ranma spotted him, he ran away. The principal gathers all of the members of the various sports teams. He tells them that they will go crush the second store. When she finds out, Akane asks Ranma to help the old man. Ranma didn't want to. But when the old man throws around the pictures of Ranma turning into Ranma-chan, Ranma says that he will help out. The principal tells his students that they will get a waiver for the final exam if they destroy the store. The students get psyched up and rush toward the store. Kunou steps out and tries to make the onrushing students stop. But they just run him over. Then Akane and Ranma use some little bombs and stop them all. The principal doesn't give up and gathers more students to attack. Eventually, Akane gets captured by the principal. He puts his shaver next to Akane's hair and tells Ranma not to come any closer. Then the old man shows up and tells the principal that he will fight a match with him. The principal gladly accepts. The fight between the principal and old man begins. The principal attacks the old man with his shavers. The old man brings up his fan and the principal suddenly stops. There was something attached to the fan. When Ranma grabs the fan, he sees that it was a very old report card. The report card says: Kunou Japanese 2 2 1 English 1 1 1 Math 2 2 2 Physics 2 1 2 Gym 5 5 5 Ranma recognizes that it is the principal's and laughs at the bad grades. (1 is worst and 5 is best) The principal rips apart the fan and the report card. When he becomes happy and says that he had destroyed the evidence, the old man throws around many copies of the report card. Then he takes out the framed original. All of the students pick up the paper and laugh at the principal's grades. The principal gives up and says that he won't try to destroy the store. The old man reopens his store.

Futsuuno otokoni modoritai opening song: Chikyuu Orchestra (Kusu Kusu) ending song: Hinageshi (Nakajima Michiyo) aired: 91.10.25 Ranma, Ryouga, and Moose are going deep into the mountains carrying a a large drum full of water. Three days before, Ranma, Ryouga, and Moose were in Shampoo's restaurant. There was a Chinese salesman there who had brought some instant nannichaun powder. When Ranma mentioned that he went through a lot of trouble earlier because of this, the salesman said that this is a new version of the powder. Then Ryouga, Ranma, and Moose put all of their money on the table. They only had 30 yen each, but the salesman sold it to them. They each got one bag, but the salesman said that only one of them is the nannichaun powder. The other two are unknown. Before the salesman got beaten up, he explained that he ran into a panda and a girl. He said that he got kicked into a river and the labels came off the bags. So he didn't know what spring the powder was for. Before he ran away, he said that the powder will only work if they go into the hot water right after they mix it. But Ranma, Ryouga, and Moose were not listening. Ryouga and Moose were busy trying to beat up Ranma. Then Shampoo yelled at them. Shampoo said that they should work together. Ryouga and Ranma said ok, but Moose said that he doesn't want to. He thought that his was real, so he didn't want to share it. Then Moose walked out. Ryouga said that he will take the risk and try his out himself. When Moose was walking along the street Shampoo tricked him and took his bag of the powder away. Ryouga was boiling water in an empty lot and was getting ready to try out his powder. Ryouga was wondering what would happen if his was not the nannichaun and he turned into something like a hippopotamus. He was worried about what Akane would think. Then Shampoo came by and beat up Ryouga to take his bag away. Ranma was in the Tendo bath getting ready to try out his powder. But Ranma couldn't decide if he should go in. He didn't want to turn into a panda or something strange. So he gave up. When Ranma was discussing the situation with Soun and the Tendo girls, Kasumi said that it sounds like fun and they should all go in together. Then Nabiki told Ranma to act like a man and just go in. While Ranma was trying to psyche himself up in the doujou, Akane came to see him. She put her hand on his shoulder and said, "Even if it is the wrong one and you turn into a pig or duck, you're still Ranma. No matter what you turn into, I.." Just then Shampoo came and told Ranma that she had the other two bags of powder. Ranma immediately followed her outside. Moose and Ryouga came to the park where Shampoo and Ranma were boiling the hot water. They fight and they eventually end up with the bags all mixed up. Then Ranma asks them to share it. They all say ok, since now they didn't know who had whos bag. They decide to go deep into the mountains to try out the powder. In the mountains, Ranma, Ryouga, and Moose were sitting around the campfire. They were all tired and Ranma said, "We've been together for a long time, but we've never spent time like this." Then Moose said, "Ever since I was little I was training and never had time to make friends." Ryouga added, "Me too. I was always alone." Ranma said, "I was always traveling." Then they all go to sleep. In the middle of the night, Ranma had a nightmare. Ryouga and Moose had tied him up. Then they throw Ranma into the drums one by one to test for the real one nannichuan. Ryouga and Moose also had the same nightmares. The next day, they prepare the three drums and boil hot water. They all get in front of one drum and prepare to jump inside. But at the last moment, Moose feels that his wasn't the real one and exchanges drums with Ranma after he distracted the other's attentions. Then Ryouga changes drums with Ranma, after accusing Ranma of changing drums. They all change drums many times until they are all mixed up again. While they were arguing, a small bird flew into one of the drums of water. Then a large prehistoric bird flew out of the drum. Next, a cat who was being chased jumped into another drum. Then a saber tooth tiger jumped out of the drum. There was now only one drum left. They all began to fight. Then someone knocked the drum over, sending it rolling down a hill. They all run down after it, while fighting each other. Then the drum falls off of a cliff. Ranma, Ryouga, and Moose fall off too. Then the water from the drum spills and splashes over them while they were falling in mid air. They were so happy that they got touched by the nannichaun water. But after falling into the river below, Ranma turned into a girl, Ryouga turned into a pig, and Moose turned into a duck. Back at the Nekohanten, Shampoo tells them that the powder only works if they jump in right after it is mixed. Then she says that it is good that they didn't turn into something strange.

Genma just ignored them and kept walking down the street. When Genma got home he went to look for some manju that he had been saving. But he saw Ranma with something in his mouth. Ranma had eaten his manju. Genma gets very mad. They fight. [manju = Japanese pastry dessert] Ryouga was wandering around. He thought that he was somewhere in China, but he runs into the panda. The panda and Ryouga go to a restaurant together. Ryouga was suspicious because Ranma's father was treating him for dessert. Genma said that he was getting old and he has to find a follower for his musabetsu kakutou. When Ryouga mentioned Ranma, Genma said that there is no father son relationship in martial arts. He also said that Ryouga was stronger and has better skills than Ranma. But Ryouga refused. Then Genma got down on his knees and begged and begged. Ryouga told Genma that he will think about it. When Ryouga got to the Tendo home, he heard Genma and Ranma fighting. They were fighting over some food again. When Genma saw Ryouga, he went up to him and hugged him. That night during dinner, Genma told everyone that Ryouga will be his student and take after his musabetsu kakutou. Nabiki asked what will happen about Akane's iinazuke. Then Genma said that Ryouga will be Akane's iinazuke. Akane got mad and walked out. The next day, Genma and Ryouga started the training. Genma moved out of the Tendo house and camped out with Ryouga. At night Akane couldn't sleep. She went to the refrigerator, but couldn't find any milk. Then Ranma came by and told Akane that he will go buy milk for her. On the way home from the store, Ranma walked by the tent that Genma and Ryouga were camping in. Genma and Ryouga kept training daily. They didn't talk to Ranma even when they passed him by. Akane and Ranma went to Ucchan's store to buy an okonomiyaki for Soun. When Ukyou mentioned that Ryouga is now Akane's iinazuke, Akane got mad. Then Ukyou said that she is the only iinazuke for Ranma. Ukyou said that there is no reason for Ranma to stay at the Tendo home any more. So Ranma stayed and told Akane to go home by herself. Akane got mad and ripped up her father's okonomiyaki. After Akane had left, Ukyou asked Ranma what kind of okonomiyaki he wanted. Ranma said stamina okonomiyaki. Because of his answer, Ukyou mistakenly thought that Ranma wanted to sleep with her since she was his only iinazuke now. But Ranma was just getting ready because he knew that Ryouga would come challenging him soon. When Genma was about to tell Ryouga about Ranma's weakness, Ryouga said that he doesn't want to know Ranma's weakness. He said that he will defeat him without using it. Ranma and Ryouga fight in the Tendo doujou. It was an even match, as Genma was giving signals to Ryouga about Ranma's attacks. After a while, Genma pulls out a cat and throws it on Ranma. Then Genma shouts, "Ryouga, beat up Ranma and give him the revenge of the manju." They all find out that all of this was just because Genma wanted to get back at Ranma for eating his manju. Ranma and Ryouga beat up Genma.

But Tofu-sensei refuses because he already has four subscriptions. Then Kasumi comes by and Tofu-sensei loses his composure. The newspaper salesman gives two amusement park tickets to Kasumi and Tofu-sensei signs up for a subscription. The Tendo family were discussing the amusement park ticket. Genma and Soun wanted to go very badly, but they were trying to hide their excitement. Since six people can go into the amusement park with one ticket, Kasumi suggests that they go on Sunday. Then Soun immediately agrees. Akane was worried because she wanted Tofu and Kasumi to go by themselves. Then Happosai comes into the room with a bag full of panties. He asks what is going on. Just when Akane was going to say something, she spots her underwear in Happosai's bag. Then Akane goes chasing after Happosai. After Akane and Happosai had left the room, Ranma says that he wants to leave Happosai out of the trip to the amusement park. On Sunday, Tofu-sensei was trying to decide which glasses to wear. After putting on several, he finally decides to wear his usual ones. When Kasumi came and called out his name, Tofu-sensei rushed out. But Tofu-sensei didn't notice that he had dropped his wallet in his room. At the amusement park, Ranma was playing the mogura tataki game. He got a good score. But Genma came and pushed him away saying that he will show them how to play. Soun argued that he was next in line. Then Genma and Soun keep playing the mogura tataki game. [mogura tataki game = game where you try to hit the moles that pop out of holes with a hammer] Akane was feeling worried because she wanted Kasumi and Tofu-sensei to get together. She felt that the family was getting in the way. Tofu-sensei goes to buy some food. He spots a Chinese food store. It was Shampoo's store. Tofu-sensei finally discovered that he had dropped his wallet and had no money. Shampoo said that she will give him the food free is he tells her where Ranma was. So, Shampoo went to Ranma and Akane got all upset. Genma kept bragging to Soun about his score in the mogura tataki game. Soun argued that Genma played one more game than he did. Since everyone had gathered, Nabiki opened the lunch basket. Inside the basket, Happosai was sleeping. Happosai had eaten all of the lunch! When they all surrounded Happosai, he started crying. There was no food and nobody had any money left. Soun and Genma had used all of their money on the mogura tataki game. (They had played about 30 games.) Even Nabiki didn't have enough money. Then a couple of girls walked by talking about a full course dinner for two if they win a go cart race. They all heard about it and tried to enter the race to win some food. Nabiki and Akane found out that the go carts were small and fit for girls. They thought that it was perfect for them. At the race track, Kasumi asked Tofu-sensei to teach her how to drive. Akane and Nabiki were surprised that Kasumi was going to enter the race. Soun tells Genma that he will defeat him to make up for the mogura tataki game. Akane wanted to win to give the full course dinner as a present to Kasumi and Tofu-sensei. Ranma-chan spotted Ryouga and told him that she will win. She said that the go cart was made just for her. Then some girl dressed in a green racing uniform walked up and told Ranma-chan that the race isn't that easy. After the girl walked away, someone said that the girl was someone who practiced in this course every week and even holds the course record. He said that she will probably win. Ranma-chan then said that it would be an interesting race. The race starts. Immediately, Akane backs into the wall. She mixed up the gears and went in reverse. Ranma-chan and the racing girl went out into the lead. The girl took the lead going into the turns. Ranma-chan said that she won't lose to any girl. Shampoo kept knocking people off of the road. Ryouga was lost somewhere in the pit stop. Ranma-chan was right behind the racing girl, but passed her at a corner. Then the girl bumped Ranma-chan from behind and yelled at her. Shampoo and Akane kept trying to knock each other out. They knocked Genma and Soun off of the road. Then they passed Kasumi and Nabiki who were driving slowly and carefully. Kasumi yelled that they were speeding too much. Happosai (with underwear tied to his go cart) passed the racing girl and reached Ranma-chan for the lead. Shampoo bumped into the racing girl from behind. She told the "obasan" to get out of the way. [obasan = old, middle aged woman] Moose taped a jet engine to his go cart. Moose reentered the race course, but his go cart went out of control. Moose hit Genma and his go cart kept pushing Genma's go cart. Then Moose and Genma hit Akane and Shampoo. Then they hit the racing girl. Meanwhile Happosai and Ranma-chan were arguing. Then Happosai stepped up and pulled out his happodaikarin. Happosai was going to throw it at the cars behind him. But Ranma-chan stopped him. Then there was a big explosion and all of the cars went crashing into a water tank which was on the side of the race course. The racing girl saw the animals (panda, cat, duck) and wondered what was going on. Just then Kasumi and Nabiki who were driving at their own pace went by and headed for the finish line. Kasumi won and Nabiki came in second. The Tendo family go to a fast food restaurant and eat. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 102 title: Fuurinkan koukou. Toorima jiken opening song: Mou Nakanaide (Senou Azusa) ending song: Positive (Morikawa Miho) aired: 91.11.29 A young girl was walking down the street alone. She thinks that someone is following her. She starts to run. After she had run for a while, she stops. When she looked back, there was nobody following her. Just when she turned back, someone appeared in front of her and left a caterpillar. The girl screams because she hates bugs. At school during lunch, some of Akane's classmates talk to her. They ask about Ranma to see if he had been acting strangely recently. One of the girls had run into the toorima that had been terrorizing the high school girls recently. Akane said that she didn't know anything about the toorima. The girl said that she left school late one day, and somebody was following her. It was a masked, black caped man. When the girl hit him with her school bag, he ran off. [toorima = phantom terrorizer] Akane thought that the girls wanted Ranma to help out. But the girls told her that the toorima had a pony tail. Also they told Akane that the toorima even said that he was Saotome Ranma to one girl that he had attacked. Akane was surprised and couldn't believe that Ranma would do such a thing. That day after school, Akane asked some classmates for Ranma. But Ranma had already left. Akane was wondering what reason Ranma would have to do such a thing. On the way home, the toorima appeared in front of Akane. Akane turned and yelled at the toorima, scaring him. Akane threw an apple at him and went after him, but he got away. When Akane got home, Ranma was in the bathroom taking a shower. Ranma said that he got dirty at school. Akane immediately thought of the masked man that she ran into. Then Akane went into the bathroom thinking that it was Ranma. When Ranma yelled, Akane threw cold water on him. A frightened and surprised Ranma-chan asked what was going on. Gosunkugi was walking around thinking that the end of Ranma's social life will come soon. After Akane told Ranma-chan about the toorima, she said that it wasn't him/her. Ranma-chan got mad and said that she will catch whoever is giving him a bad name. The next day when Ranma and Akane were walking to school, all of the other classmates were staring at them and whispering among themselves. When Ranma walked into his class, everyone looked at him. Then Gosunkugi went up to Ranma and said that he understands how Ranma feels. But Gosunkugi really meant that he understands why Ranma would want to go around doing such things. So Ranma beat him up. During class, Ranma was burning up with anger. Akane was thinking that they have to catch the toorima. Gosunkugi was daydreaming about saving Akane from Ranma, after the rumor spreads around the whole school. Then the teacher caught them not paying attention and made them stand outside. After school, a cute red haired girl wearing a yellow dress and carrying a bouquet of roses came looking for Ranma. She went around asking about Ranma to the students of Fuurinkan high school. Ranma-chan tried to make herself stand out but the toorima didn't appear. Then Ranma-chan went to rest in a park. Just when she was about to give up, the toorima appeared. When Ranma-chan tried to find out the real identity of the toorima, the masked man tried to run away. But Akane came and cornered him. Then the toorima said that he will reveal himself. He took off his cape and mask. The toorima disguised himself badly as Ranma and said that he was Saotome Ranma. Ranma and Akane both knew right away that it was Gosunkugi. Then Ranma-chan turned herself into Ranma and beat up Gosunkugi. The next day at school, Ranma told everyone that he had beaten up the toorima. He had the mask, cape, and fake pony tail. The other students apologized to Ranma for believing that he was the toorima. When one of the boys asked about the real identity of the toorima, Ranma and Akane said that they couldn't find out. Just then Gosunkugi came into the classroom with some lunch bread for Ranma. Some of the girls wondered if Ranma and Gosunkugi were always that close friends. Ranma and Gosunkugi went to the roof to eat. Ranma had promised Gosunkugi that he will not tell everyone who the real toorima was. But in return Gosunkugi had to listen to what Ranma said. Then Gosunkugi started to give Ranma a massage. Behind Ranma's back, Gosunkugi pulled out a large nail. Gosunkugi wanted to drive it into Ranma. But Ranma suddenly remembered that he had promised to play soccer. Ranma jumped up and ran away. When Ranma jumped up, he had hit Gosunkugi's hand and driven the nail into Gosunkugi's nose. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 103 title: Jusenkyou kara kita akuma zenpen opening song: Mou Nakanaide (Senou Azusa) ending song: Positive (Morikawa Miho) aired: 91.12.06 The Chinese guide woke up on the floor. But he wasn't sleeping though. He had been attacked. He had hoof marks on his body. The guide said that the guest list to Jusenkyou was gone. On a nearby cliff, a pretty young boy with a cape was smiling with the guest list in his hands. Shampoo's great grandmother told Ranma that the guest list had been stolen from Jusenkyou. She said that the guide had been attacked by some panty stockings. Then Happosai ran around the house yelling that he wanted some panty stockings (Akane's, Ranma-chan's). Ranma finally caught him and kicked him out. Happosai ran around the neighborhood stealing underwear. The boy with the cape chased after Happosai. But Happosai was too fast. He swore to himself that he will catch Happosai. The next day it looked like it was going to rain. On the way to school, Ranma was saying to Akane that he didn't have an umbrella. Just then someone came and tried to splash water on Ranma. Ranma jumped out of the way. It was the panty stocking boy. He said that he wanted Akane. Then Ranma attacked him. The boy dodged Ranma's punches and said that Ranma will regret it if he got mad. Then it started to rain. Ranma attacked the boy, but the boy had turned into a devil monster, just as Ranma turned into Ranma-chan. The monster was very big, had horns and wings, and looked like a bull. It easily swatted Ranma-chan away. As the monster was going to hit Ranma-chan who had crashed into a fence, Happosai came and blocked its punch with one finger. Happosai said that he will accept this fight. Then Happosai said, "If you want to live, give me all of your panty stockings." The monster attacked Happosai, so Happosai used his happodaikarin. After the smoke cleared Happosai went to strike the final blow, but the monster had taken Akane. The monster flew away with Akane. Ranma-chan tried to stop the moster, but couldn't do anything. At home Soun yelled at Ranma for not protecting Akane. But Happosai came and showed them the guest book that the panty stocking boy had dropped. When Ranma looked through the book, he saw most of the names crossed out. There was one name that was not crossed out. But the writing was so bad that they could not read it. Then Happosai grabbed the book and said that it was Happosai. When Ranma asked what Happosai had done at Jusenkyou, Happosai gave his story. Some years ago Happosai visited Jusenkyou. Just then there was a pregnant woman who gave birth to a boy. Happosai washed the new born baby in a nearby spring. The Chinese guide was shocked and said that the spring that Happosai had used was one where a snow monster who was riding a bull holding an eel and a crane drowned 2500 years ago. Then when Happosai pulled the baby out of the spring, it had turned into a very small monster. Then a panty stocking came flying into the doujou. It had a message telling them to bring Happosai if they wanted to see Akane alive again. Then Ranma, Soun, and the panda chased after Happosai, but he got away. So Ranma said that he will go get Akane back by himself. Akane was tied up by panty hose in a house on a cliff by the ocean. She was thinking that this boy was very strong, and that Ranma will get hurt if he fought against the monster again. Shampoo and Moose found out about Akane and Ranma from Soun. Then they said that they will also go help out Ranma in rescuing Akane. While Ranma was climbing the rocks to go to the house where Akane was being held, Ryouga came up to him and said that he will save Akane. When Ryouga told Ranma not to get in the way, a big wave came by and splashed Ryouga. Then the panty stocking boy appeared. He got mad when he saw that Ranma didn't bring Happosai. Then they started fighting. When Ranma said that he understood how the boy must feel about his curse, the boy replied that it's not as bad as turning into a girl. Then the boy splashed water on Ranma and called him a fag. Ranma got mad and the boy also got ready to fight, but he slipped into the ocean. Then the monster came out and charged at Ranma-chan. Akane got away from the house and was trying to escape. She climbed down the cliff and jumped into the ocean. But Akane quickly struggled back to the shore because she couldn't swim. Ranma-chan and P-chan were hanging on the monster's horns as the monster flew around in the sky. Ranma-chan kept trying to kick the monster. Then Ranma-chan and P-chan fell off. They dropped all the way into the river below. Ranma-chan was knocked unconscious and P-chan was trying wake her up as they drifted down the river on a log. When the monster came to attack them, Ranma-chan regained consciousness and kicked the log into the monster's throat. But Ranma-chan and P-chan fell over a waterfall. The monster recovered and carried off Akane, who had been watching the battle. P-chan dragged the unconscious Ranma-chan to shore. Then he heard some noises in the bushes behind him. He attacked, but it was Shampoo and Moose, who had come to help. Akane was worried about Ranma in the house on the cliff. When Akane asked why the boy was doing all of this, the panty stocking boy told Akane about what Happosai had done when he was born. But he said that the reason wasn't that. He said that he didn't mind turning into a strong monster when hit with cold water. There was something else much worse that Happosai had done to him. The panty stocking boy was in pain from the hit that Ranma got on him with the log. Ranma finally recovered. Shampoo and Moose said that they will help fight against the monster. Ryouga said that he doesn't believe them. Then Moose said that they have known each other for a long time and had been through a lot together. Ryouga was easily tricked by Moose's words. Moose was really thinking, "This is a great chance to kill Ranma." Shampoo was really thinking, "This is a great chance to kill Akane." At night the panty stocking boy lit a great bon fire. It was a sign to give away his location. Then Akane warned him that he shouldn't take Ranma too lightly. Ranma, Ryouga, Shampoo, and Moose started to run toward the fire. Ranma 1/2 Nettouhen episode 104 title: Jusenkyou kara kita akuma kouhen opening song: Mou Nakanaide (Senou Azusa) ending song: Positive (Morikawa Miho) aired: 91.12.13 The panty stocking boy told Akane that the Ranma had to go through a lot of water boobie traps. Ranma, Ryouga, Shampoo, and Moose started to go up the rocks. The panty stocking boy carried Akane out and waited at the top. Then Akane yelled that it was a trap. But the panty stocking boy said that if they don't come for her, he will put a panty hose over Akane's face. Ryouga imagined how ugly Akane will be with a panty hose over her head and yelled, "Stop!" and ran for Akane. The panty stocking boy kicked off one of his traps, and a lot of water fell on Ryouga. Then the panty stocking boy carried Akane off and Ranma went after him. When Ranma was right under the next trap, the panty stocking boy set a lot of water directed at Ranma. But Moose used his weapons to tie Ranma and pull him to safety. Ranma thanked Moose, but Moose really wanted to kill Ranma. Just then the panty stocking boy used another one of his traps to pour water all over Moose. Meanwhile Shampoo found Akane all tied up in a cave. Shampoo walked toward Akane thinking that it was a good chance to kill her, but another trap splashed water on her. So Ranma was the only one left. Ranma was climbing the cliff and found out that there was a lot of water everywhere. When he kicked some rocks loose, a stream of water shot out. Finally Ranma reached to top, where the panty stocking boy was waiting. The boy hit Ranma with his stick to even the score with Ranma hitting him the day before. Then Ranma and the boy squared off to fight. Ranma started to attack the boy. Ranma complained that the boy was only defending himself. Ranma forced the boy back against a wall. Then Ranma threw a punch, but the boy dodged it. Ranma hit the wall and a lot of water came out from the hole that Ranma created. Then Ranma-chan kept fighting with the boy. But the boy was too strong and sent Ranma-chan over the ledge. Meanwhile P-chan and the duck struggled to a hot spring. They returned to their normal form. When Moose said that they were lost, Ryouga said that he remembered the road back. [Even though Ryouga is very bad in directions.] When Ryouga said that he didn't remember the shapes of the rocks, Moose said that he remembered the shapes with his eyes. [Even though Moose's eyesight is very bad.] Then they went out to find Ranma with some pots of hot water. The boy and Ranma-chan started fighting again. This time the boy was attacking and Ranma-chan was just defending herself. Then Akane spotted Ryouga and Moose running in the wrong direction with the hot water. Akane broke free of her bonds and ran to get the hot water. But it was too late as Ranma-chan hit the boy into the wall. The wall crumbled and the water turned the boy into a monster. Akane threw the pot of water, but the monster knocked it away. Then Akane dove for the pot over the cliff. Ranma-chan dove after Akane. After Ranma-chan caught Akane, the monster threw a large boulder at them. But just before the boulder was going to hit, Ranma blocked it away after turning back into a boy. Ranma got really mad and went back up to fight the monster. When Ranma got to the top, Ryouga and Moose were already there. After returning Shampoo to her normal form, they all attacked the monster together. Then the monster took off flying with Ranma, Ryouga, Shampoo, and Moose on top. The monster then turned around and flew back toward the cliff where Akane was trying to climb. Just before the monster was going to hit Akane, Happosai came and pulled Akane to safety. The monster flew after Happosai and Akane who was running away. Then Ranma, Ryouga, Shampoo, and Moose all hit the monster on the head and made it fly toward the waterfall. The monster flew into the water with everyone on top of him. Then he flew out by himself. Ranma-chan, P-chan, the cat, and duck were gone. There turned out to be a cave behind the waterfall. Akane and Happosai came by to look for Ranma. After they returned to their original bodies, they tied up Happosai and asked them what he had done to the panty stocking boy that made him so mad. Happosai cried and answered that he hadn't done anything. He said that he should be thanked instead of being hated. Then Ranma asked him what the boy should be so thankful about. Happosai said that he had chosen the name for the boy because it was the village rule that the one who washed the boy in the water gives him the name. Happosai said that he had chosen a name so that he would be loved by everybody. The name that he gave was Pansuto Taro (panty stocking Taro). Then Taro came. When Ranma told Taro that he should just change the name to whatever he likes, Shampoo said that it was not possible. She said that the rules of a Chinese village could not be broken. Moose added that the only one who can change the boy's name was the one who had chosen it. Then Ranma told Happosai to give Taro a new name. Taro grabbed Happosai and demanded it too. But Happosai gave Taro the happodaikarin and ran out saying that his name has to be Pansuto Taro. Then Ryouga said that Pansuto Taro wasn't that bad. He said that if his name was Panty Taro it would be worse. Moose and Shampoo also joined in and gave some other names that could be worse. Then Taro got mad and punched the floor, causing a lot of water to come rushing out. The cat, the duck, P-chan, Akane, and Ranma-chan were thrown out of the cave by the force of the water. The monster flew out and tried to attack Ranma-chan. But Ranma-chan grabbed the horns and rode on top of the monster who flew around. Then Akane threw some panty hose to Ranma-chan. Ranma-chan tied up the monster's wings with the panty hose. Then the monster started to fall toward the ground. Just before it hit the ground, the monster turned its back toward the ground so that Ranma-chan will get smashed. But Ranma-chan jumped out of the way. Since the panty hose was still tied to the monster and also Ranma-chan's hand, the monster twirled Ranma-chan around and sent her flying. But Ranma-chan used the force of the stretched out panty hose to bounce back and land a powerful kick on the monster. This kick knocked the monster out. Then they all gathered at the house. Ranma-chan lured Happosai by wearing some panty hose. Then Ranma, Akane, Ryouga, Shampoo, and Moose beat up Happosai to try to convince him to change Taro's name. Ranma handed the tied up Happosai to Taro. Ranma said that Happosai had agreed to give Taro a new name. Then Taro turned himself into a monster and flew back to China with Happosai. While the monster was flying, Happosai tried to think of a new name for Taro. But all of the names that Happosai came up with were stupid names with something to do with underwear.
