The Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics Battle
Akane watched with disdain as the Amazons and Ranma trained in the dojo,
preparing for the upcoming match that was to take place tomorrow. For the
last few days, Ranma had been putting the warrior girls through their
paces, using himself as the target. She snorted in disgust at how he
continued to dodge their strikes as they hurled clubs, hoops and lashed out
with their ribbons.
*Hmpf! How does he expect them to get any better if he doesn't let them
practice on him? * Akane thought as she watched Ranma move with incredible
agility and speed, evading each projectile and attack by mere centimeters.
The fact that he was blind made the feats seem even more amazing.
*Those girls don't stand a chance if all Ranma is going to do is dodge
their attacks! * Akane thought as she continued to observe that the Amazons
were still unable to land a hit on their instructor, though they were only
missing by scant centimeters.
By this time, Ranma was already reading the level of hostility and smugness
coming from Akane as he continued to evade his sister Amazons. After
another ten minutes of training, Ranma gracefully landed in-between Lilac
and Perfume, catching the ends of their ribbons as both girls lashed
forward with them. Each ribbon end was caught between his index and middle
fingers. At the same time, Shampoo hurled a pair of clubs at her cousin's
face, but Ranma simply deflected them, by flipping a ball on the floor,
with the tip of his foot. The clubs bounced off and went flying off to the
sides. He then gave slight nod and the girls relaxed in their stances.
"Well done girls. Your teamwork is coming along very well. Take a rest for
a few minutes." Ranma said as he released the ends of their ribbons.
The three girls nodded as they picked up towels to wipe the sweat from
their foreheads. The last few days had been very grueling for them, as the
Unseen Light fighter had put them through a series of training sessions
that had been more intense then they had ever been through back in the
village. The blind fighter would continually attack them, testing their
reflexes and sixth senses. In class, Ranma would purposely throw something
at their heads to catch them off-guard, say an eraser or pencil. At lunch,
he would try to sneak their food away, making them more aware of their
environment. He would attack them in their beds at night, testing their
danger senses. As they worked at the dojo, the blind boy would challenge
them to try to strike him, continually increasing the pace as they began to
get closer to landing a blow. He had also been teaching them the Hidden
Weapons style. Mousse had never taught anyone of his fighting style and
shared the secret with no one. However, Ranma's senses had already
discerned how the trick worked and wasn't above teaching the other Amazons.
At this point, all three girls were now proficient at hiding their ribbons
and a few clubs. Considering that they wore only skintight outfits and
didn't leave any outlines of what they hid, that was a considerable
He then turned to Akane and said, "We'll be finished in about an hour, then
the dojo is all yours."
"It's about time." Akane snorted. "Not that you've been doing very much
training all week."
"What's that supposed to mean?" Ranma asked in an annoyed tone.
"You're not making them any better by just dodging you know." Akane
sneered. "They won't stand a chance against Kodachi if all you do is avoid
"Oh?" Ranma replied in a sarcastic tone. "And I suppose they would benefit
by going through the kind of training that you go through every day?" Ranma
had observed what Akane did to keep in shape, and it was nowhere near the
caliber that even novice Amazon fighters underwent. " Breaking targets that
neither hit back nor dodge is hardly a fitting benchmark to one's skills."
"What did you say?" Akane said, as her tone became a bit colder.
Ranma shrugged nonchalantly. "Kodachi isn't like those bricks and training
dummies. She's not going to stand still and just give you opportunities to
hit her. There is a reason why I dodge Shampoo and the others. Right now, I
am dodging at twice the speed that I estimate Kodachi is capable of doing.
The fact that Shampoo and the others are coming close to striking me is
proof that they will be able to match her. If we were to just practice with
inanimate objects like you, then we would lose in no time. Martial Arts
Rhythmic Gymnastics is primarily based on agility, coordination, strategy,
and speed. Striking power means very little if one is not able to hit the
target. You are far too concerned with increasing the power of your blows
that you neglect all the other aspects of the battle. Then again, that's
what I'd expect from an undisciplined amateur."
"Amateur?!" Akane said in a huff as she got ready to attack Ranma for that
insult. At that moment, he chose to turn his back to her. Akane lunged with
a straight punch to his head. However, in the next instant, she found
herself flying through the air and landing hard on her face on the other
side of the dojo.
Ranma shook his head and sighed. He sensed that attack coming a mile away.
He shook his head and called out to Akane. "It also requires control and it
is very obvious that you are seriously lacking in that department. Your
temper will be your undoing every time."
Akane angrily got to her feet to attack Ranma again, but she soon found
herself being glared at by three very irritated Amazons.
Lilac, Shampoo and Perfume all knew that Ranma could easily handle this
uppity and ill-mannered girl, but they still took offense to her attacking
their intended husband from behind. They were getting ready to pound Akane
into the floor of the dojo when Ranma sensed the rise in hostilities and
held up a hand.
"There will be no fighting." Ranma turned back to Akane. "As I said before,
we shall be finished within an hour. Since this is our last night, we shall
wrap up our training and leave. Afterwards, the dojo will be yours to use
as you see fit. Until then, it would be best for everyone if you were to
leave us alone."
"Bastard!" Akane spat out. "Why don't you just leave now? This dojo belongs
to me and you have no right to be here!"
Ranma crossed his arms and addressed Akane in a patient, yet annoyed tone.
"As I recall, this dojo was offered to us for use by your sister Nabiki, in
return for a few favors. I have held up my end of the bargain. It had
nothing to do with you and besides, you don't own this dojo, your father
"It's my legacy, MY heritage!" Akane said, her anger building.
"Then it is a DEAD legacy." Ranma said flatly. "This dojo is nothing more
than a deadweight to this family and you're better off without it. If
Nabiki has to earn income to maintain a dojo that has no students, then it
is not worth the effort. And if you're the best student that this school
has to offer, then we have really nothing to be concerned about."
"How dare you!" By referring the dojo as deadweight, Akane had seen it as
an insult to both her family and her school. "The Tendo School of Anything
Goes Martial Arts is the finest in the world! I'll show you what a REAL
martial artist can do! I challenge you!"
Ranma gave off a slight snort, then said, "Challenge? You're no challenge
at all. Neither are you a real martial artist."
"ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!" Akane lunged at Ranma, but again found herself flying
through the air. This time, she went out the front door and landed on the
back lawn. She got up and saw Ranma calmly closing the sliding door. Before
it shut, he addressed her. "Be done in an hour."
The youngest Tendo daughter scowled, as she was about to stomp back into
the dojo and pound that arrogant jerk into goo. That was when Nabiki came
"Forget it Akane. He's way beyond you in terms of skill, power or anything
to do with martial arts."
"Oooh, just you wait, I'll show him!" Akane spat out as she stomped toward
Nabiki rolled her eyes and sighed. She called after her as she entered the
house. "Give it a rest. They're going to be gone after tonight and that
will be that." The middle daughter of Soun Tendo felt a bit of sadness as
she mentioned this. She was really going to miss having him around. True to
his word, Ranma had helped raise money for her family. He had used his
extraordinary musical talents to set up small concerts. Then there was that
recording studio that wanted to sign him up. He used his special senses to
aid Nabiki in tough negotiations with other clients. Since he could tell
when someone was hiding something or lying, Nabiki saved a bundle in
avoiding bad deals and getting money from people who owed her. Of course,
with Kuno constantly attacking Ranma, the betting pools also generated
quite a tidy sum.
But now, he was leaving and Nabiki still couldn't figure out how to make
him stay. The blind boy had kept himself at arm's length and the Tendo
daughter had not learned much more about him. He wasn't very cooperative
whenever she asked him about his past.
As Nabiki contemplated on how she could glean more information about Ranma,
the eldest Tendo sister also looked forlornly at the dojo from the kitchen
window. Kasumi felt her heavy heart as she thought about Ranma leaving her
home, probably never to return. In the few days that Ranma was here, Kasumi
had experienced a sense of happiness and contentment that seemed to radiate
from the unseeing martial artist. Ranma had long since forgiven her of her
blunder and Kasumi had tried her best to make amends and get closer to him.
However, like Nabiki, she too could not make any headway with him.
At the back of the dojo, Cologne finished with tying up Soun and Genma.
Over the last week, the pair had made no less than fifty attempts to force
Ranma into marriage with Akane. Tonight's attempt was probably their most
desperate. As soon as Ranma had entered the Tendo compound, Akane's father
had gone into this Demon Head attack and saying 'You will marry Akane!' but
this direct approach was totally ineffective. Though the Demon Head could
cow an inexperienced person into submission, Ranma's lack of sight made the
technique absolutely useless. Genma had thought to use the diversion to
sneak up from behind to knock Ranma out, but the Unseen Light Fighter
simply grabbed his father and body-slammed him into Soun, knocking them
As she made certain that the two conspirators were secured for the night,
the aged matriarch's senses began to pick up a massive amount of ki being
manipulated. She looked back to the dojo and nodded, recognizing the
individual ki sources. Ranma was now putting the girls through their final
Inside the dojo, each girl was wearing a blindfold, as her aura flared up.
Ranma approached them and began stabbing at them with his staff. Using only
their sixth senses and hearing, the Amazons swerved and dogged the strikes
as they started to increase in speed and intensity.
"Use your sixth senses to FEEL danger. Let your other senses be your
allies. Remember, your eyes are only for LOOKING, not for SEEING." The
blind teenager instructed, as he helped his sister Amazons attain a new
level of awareness. For the past week, not only had Ranma been training
their physical skills, but also aided them in manipulating their ki to
enhance their other senses, including their sense for danger. Given
Kodachi's penchant for hiding unexpected surprises such as paralysis powder
and poisons, having an early-warning system would be a great asset.
As the exercise began to pick up the pace, Ranma began deploying his Hidden
Weapon techniques against them. Though their sixth senses could now detect
the ki being used to make weapons emerge, they could not determine what
kind of weapons he was using. Ranma wasn't expecting them to know as they
still had their sight and would never be able to detect objects as he could
with his seventh sense.
Ranma first made a trio of throwing daggers to appear and threw them at
Shampoo. His cousin sensed the danger and swerved to the right. The daggers
imbedded themselves into the opposite wall. Ranma then threw a barrage of
shurikens at Perfume. She also successfully evaded the danger. Then it was
Lilac's turn as Ranma threw out a ribbon, hoping to ensnare her right leg.
Since this was not going to hurt her like the blades and the throwing
stars, Ranma expected her not to be able to detect the danger and instead
react to the sounds that his movements made. That was when he suddenly
sensed something strange, being emitted from her as he lashed forward.
Instead of swerving to the side to avoid it, the red-haired girl stomped
down with her fight foot, pinning down the ribbon firmly to the floor of
Ranma was speechless. He began focusing his senses on her. The emission he
had felt before was weak, almost below even his sensitivity. Try as he
could, he couldn't sense it again.
Later at the Nekohanten...
<So, are they ready for the tournament tomorrow? > Cologne asked as the two
sat at a table in the restaurant. The girls had all gone to bed early so
that they could be well rested for tomorrow's tournament.
<"They are as ready as they will ever be." > The blind fighter affirmed as
he took a sip of his tea. <"I'd like to thank you Cologne for watching out
for my father and his tricks." >
<"It was my pleasure." > The three-hundred-year-old Amazon replied. As she
thought back to when they left the Tendo Dojo, she couldn't believe just
how pathetic Soun and his friend were. He had burst into tears and bawled
about uniting the schools of the Anything Goes. At the same time, Genma
went on and on about how his son had no honor and such. That was when they
tried to bumrush Ranma, but were stopped in their tracks, literally.
Cologne's knowledge of pressure points was only equaled by Ranma's and
<"What is wrong Ranma?" > Cologne noted that that the only user of the
Unseen Light was deep in thought.
<"It's Lilac." >
<"What about her?" >
Ranma paused for a long time before replying. <"I... detected something in
her when I tested her sixth sense. She can sense danger as well as Shampoo
and Perfume, but the way she reacted... I'm not sure, but I think she MIGHT
have a seventh sense." >
<"The seventh sense?" > Cologne was quite surprised. She was one of the few
Elders in the village that was even aware of the legendary extra sense that
could detect objects, rather than just the ki of others. Koga had mentioned
it to her and she was under the impression that a sighted person could
never fully realize it since they were too dependent on their eyes.
Ranma nodded. <"I felt it only for a very brief moment. Maybe I just
imagined it, though it did feel the same as I did when I first learned of
<"Why this is wonderful! Wouldn't it be grand if she really did learn to
use the seventh sense?" > Though Cologne did want to have her
great-granddaughter with the same potential. Still, it was incredible to
think that the Amazons could harness this ability.
Ranma shook his head. <"Let's not be too hasty. I said I only felt it for
an instant. It felt like Master Koga's seventh sense at its most basic and
fundamental levels and it was extremely weak. It could have been just a
Cologne nodded, as she didn't want to get too ahead of herself. It could
have been a fluke, but if it wasn't, then the Amazons could be lifted to
greater glories if they could develop Ranma's extraordinary abilities. In
any case, her great-granddaughter and her friends would do well enough by
tomorrow. Seeing Ranma becoming accepted at Furinkan as well as Japanese
society was also a reward in itself.
On a boat heading toward Japan, Jasmine smiled as she and her three
friends, Honey, Silk and Satin leaned on the railing. The healer was very
anxious to meet up with her adopted son and see how he is doing. She had
missed him terribly and couldn't wait to see him. Her three traveling
companions were also eager to meet up with her son, but for more amorous
reasons. They would arrive in Japan by tomorrow afternoon.
In Juuban, a certain woman was talking into a phone to a private detective.
"Yes, I understand Mr. Saeba. I know it's not much to go on, but I do wish
to know the whereabouts of my son and husband. Genma keeps on sending
letters, saying that the training is going well, but he never gives me any
details. I can't help but feel that something is wrong."
The woman talked for a few minutes more before closing the deal and hanging
up the phone. She then walked over to watch the sunset from her living room
window and sighed.
The next day...
Ranma and the Amazons woke early that morning and prepared for the match
between Furinkan and St. Hebereke's gymnastics teams. The three girls and
Cologne followed Ranma as he exited the restaurant to head toward St.
Hebereke. Each girl was carrying a duffel bag filled with their outfits,
weapons and other equipment. They went around back to where Pepper was
waiting for them with a minivan. The group put their luggage in the back
and got into their seats. A moment later, they were on their way.
A few blocks away, a certain Master of Hidden Weapons was making his way
toward the all-girls school where he had heard that Amazons were to be
competing. Certain that his beloved Shampoo would be there, the near-blind
Amazon named Mousse made a beeline toward the school for what was sure to
be a joyful reunion, or so he thought.
At the St. Hebereke gymnasium, students from both schools were filling up
the bleachers as they waited for the tournament to begin. On the sidelines,
Nabiki and her flunkies were busy taking bets on the outcomes of the
matches and who would face off against Kodachi. The mercenary Tendo felt a
lump in her throat as she glimpsed Ranma and the Amazons pass by the main
area and head toward their dressing room. Sitting in the stands near battle
ring, were Akane and two of her friends. Though the youngest Tendo daughter
couldn't care less who won the tournament, she still wanted to see exactly
what Ranma had taught the Amazons.
Ranma and his team approached their dressing room and were about to go in
when the blind boy's danger sense went off and his nose picked up something
"Hold it!" Ranma spread his arms in front of the group, motioning them to
stop. He cautiously opened the door and his senses locked onto an object
that was lying on a table.
Shampoo scooted to the side and looked over Ranma's shoulder. "What is
wrong? It's just a bouquet of flowers."
Ranma shook his head. Though Shampoo and the others each had a heightened
sixth sense, they could only detect immediate danger, such as an opponent
attacking from behind. Ranma's sixth sense could also detect potential
danger, such as hidden traps. He made a throwing spike appear and hurled it
at the bouquet. As soon as it struck the flowers, a huge cloud of noxious
fumes exploded from it as Ranma quickly shut the door.
The three girls were shocked at what could have happened, had they gotten
close to those flowers.
Ranma inhaled and caught the faint scent of the fumes from behind the door.
"Don't worry. It smells like some kind of knockout gas or sleeping powder.
It wasn't anything lethal but I have a feeling that Kodachi planted it
All three girls frowned and began thinking very dark thoughts about their
opponent. She wasn't even willing to meet them on the battlefield and was
already trying to knock them out of the running before the match even
Ranma motioned for the girls to head toward a nearby restroom to change.
Outside of the gymnasium, Mousse trembled with anticipation, as he knew
that Shampoo was close by. Oh how he longed to feel her in his arms again
and express his love to his beautiful and proud warrior. It would make the
long and hard journey to Japan worth it. Though he had been denied the
chance to travel with Shampoo to study, Mousse still decided to follow his
beloved. Unfortunately, his near-sightedness made him prone to lose his way
and he had taken an unexpected trip through China before finally finding a
boat to Japan.
Now he was finally close to his love and nothing would stop him now!
That was when the sprinklers on the lawn behind him turned on.
"Quack!" Mousse found himself buried beneath his own robes and hidden
weapons as his Jusenkyo curse was activated. His thoughts turned dark as he
mentally blamed Ranma for his predicament. Though he did enjoy being able
to fly as a waterfowl, he had to avoid certain places where restaurants
specialized in duck dishes. Several times he had almost been turned into
someone else's meal. There were also duck hunters to watch out for. The
curse was an inconvenience that he could do without.
"Oh look! A duck!"
Before Mousse knew it, he found himself picked up by a girl as several
others crowded around him. It was then that a certain girl with her hair
tied in an offside ponytail took him in her hands and smiled wickedly.
"Hmmm, I know just what to do with you."
In the gymnasium, the crowds were getting impatient as they waited for the
tournament to begin. In the stands, Nabiki was conversing with her flunkies
on the overall betting pools. After learning from her mistakes on the last
time she placed odds against anyone from the Joketsuzoku, Nabiki had
instead set up pools on who would face off against Kodachi in the final
match. She had given even odds on Shampoo, Lilac and Perfume. Though her
lieutenants had suggested to taking pictures of the girls during the match,
Nabiki shook her head and vetoed the idea, remembering back to her
conversation with Ranma. If she wanted to get closer to him, she would have
to respect his wishes for the moment. Of course she winced at every time
she thought about the potential income she would have gotten with such
photos. The boys in the audience, especially from that pervert Kuno were
eager to see those girls in their form-fitting leotards. The insane
kendoist was already in the front row, waving around bouquets of flowers
and shouting out cheers of encouragement and love to his Amazon beauties.
Of course, he also tried to hit on Akane, which she hit back, with her
fist. Nabiki was totally disgusted at his blatant fickleness.
The audience became quiet as the announcer signaled the start of the
"Welcome to the Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics Tournament between
Furinkan High and St. Hebereke. Today promises to be an exciting event as
the opposing teams will face off in a no-holds barred fight. Unlike
previous tournaments held here at St. Hebereke, the challengers have not
forfeited before the match and this school's team now has a chance to
compete alongside their team leader, Kodachi 'the Black Rose' Kuno! This
will be a battle that we won't soon forget!"
The crowds let off a thunderous cheer as the applause was deafening. When
they calmed down, the announcer began introducing the challengers as the
spotlight turned onto them making their way toward the center ring.
"Introducing, from Furinkan High, all the way from China and substituting
for the regular team..."
Lilac darted up and did a triple reverse somersault in a layout position,
landing perfectly on one side of the ring. The boys gave out wolf whistles
and howls as the silver and gold leotard she wore with matching leg warmers
accented her slim figure. The design rode high on her hips, baring her
slender legs and made them seem even longer. She gracefully twirled a pair
of clubs in one hand and waved with the other. Her red hair was bound in a
long braid with a gold ribbon and she also wore a matching headband.
"Lilac..." The announcer introduced.
Shampoo was next as she also leapt to the ring in a lazy, half-pike twist
with a double-reverse spin. Landing on Lilac's right, she took out a ribbon
and twirled it gracefully around her. The boys in the crowds became
spellbound at her pink and white leotard that had a Yin/Yang symbol
embroidered in fine silk thread, above her left breast. Like Lilac's, her
clothes were very form fitting and seemed as if it was painted on. The wolf
whistles and howls became louder.
Perfume made her entrance with a one-handed handspring and a quadruple
somersault. She made a hoop appear out of nowhere and lazily spun it around
her right wrist and held it above her after landing on the other side of
Lilac. She was wearing a light blue leotard with black highlights. The
design of the outfit revealed quite a bit of cleavage and made several of
the male spectators faint from massive nosebleeds.
"And Perfume of the Chinese Amazons!" The announcer said, then paused as
she was handed an additional sheet of paper. "Also, I would like to
introduce their coach and fellow Amazon... Ranma Saotome!"
Now it was the girls who got an eyeful as Ranma suddenly leapt up high and
did a quintuple somersault to land perfectly in front of his team. Bringing
out his staff, he twirled it around in graceful motions, making it seem
like a ballet, rather than a fighting kata.
The girls got one look at the handsome boy and his lean, muscular body and
caused a roaring cheer that threatened to bring the roof down. Ranma wore a
simple white T-shirt that showed off his well-developed physique and black
"I'm in love!"
Several girls started hearing the phrase 'buns of steel' in their heads for
no apparent reason.
The crowd went on for a few minutes more, until the referee rang the bell,
signaling that the opposing team was about to enter.
"And now, here comes St. Hebereke's own gymnastics team. Their leader is
none other than the undefeated champion of Martial Arts Rhythmic
Gymnastics, Kodachi 'the Black Rose' Kuno!"
The girls of St. Hebereke were dressed in simple, yet functional navy blue
leotards and each took a position at the other side of the ring. They
counted nine in all. Trumpets began to sound as the spotlight swiveled
upwards to a figure descending toward the ring on a swing. The Furinkan
team groaned as they saw who was perched on that swing.
Kodachi Kuno was not dressed as her teammates. Her outfit was hardly
practical for gymnastics as she wore an elaborate wedding dress, complete
with ruffles, lace and veil. Fireworks were going off to herald her arrival
as she continued to descend. That was when the Furinkan team suddenly
sensed danger as one of the fireworks came shooting toward the girls. They
all reacted to their sixth senses and dodged the blast as the rocket
slammed into the mat.
When the smoke cleared, Kodachi lightly dismounted from her swing and took
an innocent look. "Oh my, however did that bomb get there?"
The three Amazon girls were giving her scowls while Ranma gave her a frown.
He did not find it at all amusing.
"Well folks, it seems that Kodachi is in fine spirits today as always. And
isn't she wearing beautiful outfit?" The announcer commented.
As Kodachi gave Ranma a lustful look, her mind was full of fantasies of
what she would do with him after she had dispatched those crude harridans
that stood behind him. She just wanted to skip the wedding and go straight
for the honeymoon. The vibes that Ranma received from her started to give
him the willies.
In the stands, Kuno was deep in thought.
<If Kodachi wins, then Ranma Saotome becomes my stepbrother. Then again...
that would mean that the beautiful Akane and the three Amazons would become
mine by default! > With that in mind, he cried out to his sibling, "Smite
them, my sister! For the first time in my life, I cheer for you!"
The referee signaled the gymnasts to go to their respective sides. Since
Furinkan only had three members, while St. Hebereke had more than twenty,
the tournament was to be a series of one-on-one elimination matches. Nine
members of St. Hebereke's team would battle against the Amazons, and
whoever was still standing would face off against Kodachi Kuno. If all
three Amazons made it past their opponents, then each would have a chance
The bell rang; signaling the start of the match as Shampoo was first up.
She faced off against a girl with long black hair and armed with a rubber
ball. Shampoo focused her mind at the task at hand as she held up two
"And now, the first match of the day as Shampoo of Furinkan faces off
against Miyami Akagi of St. Hebereke!" The announcer said as she began her
Miyami wasted no time as she charged at her opponent by throwing up her
ball, leaping up after it and spiking it down toward Shampoo.
"Akagi starts off with a viscous spike toward challenger Shampoo."
Shampoo executed a fancy backflip to avoid the ball, which was a good thing
as the sphere exploded with tremendous force when it hit the mat.
"Challenger Shampoo evades the bomb ball with a backflip and moves away to
get some fighting room!"
The purple-haired Amazon flipped back again, and rebounded off the ropes to
propel herself toward her antagonist, as she descended from her leap. As
Miyami touched down, Shampoo landed in front of her in a diving roll, then
went into a forward handspring. She went over her foe, did a
half-somersault, and brought both of her clubs down on Miyami's head.
Miyami went down like a sack of potatoes.
"An impressive move by Challenger Shampoo as she displays speed,
coordination and timing in knocking out her opponent! The first round goes
Shampoo waved fondly to her cousin as the referee held up her other arm. On
the sidelines, Kodachi's eyes narrowed as she looked at Shampoo and the
others. *Hmmm, this may not be as easy as I thought it would be. Those
harridans may possess some considerable skills. However, that won't be able
to defeat me! Just wait until I unleash the few surprises that I have in
store for them! Ranma will be mine! *
