Aloha the Principle decides he needs a vacation. He leaves Kuno on in charge not because Kuno is his son (so he says), but to give Kuno the opportunity to show responsibility.

The Jusenkyo guide shows up in Japan! He will perform a ceremony which will tap the water table that is the source of the 'Spring of Drowned Man' to where there is a new Jusenkyo spring in Japan! Where is that spring? Naturally, it's the pond directly outside the Tendo dining room.
A pack of magical, powerful cards has fallen into the wrong hands, and now Happosai is several times as much a pain as before! It was bad enough when there was just one of him- now there are six!
Shishi Hoko-Dan - the Lion's Roar Blast! Better than the construction specific 'Breaking Point' technique (which worked only on rocks), Ryoga's new move has got Ranma on the run. Can he get away fast enough?

A vat of forbidden, blue wine is having a strange effect on Picolet Chardin, that memorable, masterful monsieur of martial-arts dining. Fearing for her charge, Mme. St Paul askes for help...though she may wish she hadn't.
Held every year on July 7th, Japan's 'tanabata' festival celebrates the celestial reunion of the Weaver Princess and her beau, the Cowherd. When the two descend from the sky, their story seems suddenly so much less romantic....

Happosai's always relied on his Happo Dai-Karin or 'Happo Fire-Burst' technique to get what he want, but when the 'karin' part changes to 'kaBIN', Happosai's mold starts gettin' old real quick....
Oh those wacky, squabbling, Kuno siblings. Tatewaki (age seventeen) is in love with girl-type Ranma, while Kodachi (a.k.a 'the Black Rose') adores the boy-type. Brought to blows by jealousy, where's King Solomon where you need him?
Once again, it's return of Martial Arts Tea Ceremony master, Sentaro. This time, he needs Ranma and Akane's aid to rescue his kidnapped grandmother.

The ever-so-morose Hikaru Gosunkugi has met the girl of his dreams. The weird thing is, she even seems to like him back! The trouble is, the girl is Kogane, the teenage ghost. What can Ranma and Akane possibly do to make this ghostly love story work?
This is like no bathing-suit competition you've ever seen! The contestants are Akane, Shampoo, Ukyo and Kodachi...plus girl-type Ranma, and Tsubasa Kurenai to boot. Knowing these girls, it's going to be one hot competition!
Having learned (or been the victim of) almost any martial-arts style imaginable, Ranma's never-the-less about to learn a whole new one: Martial-Arts Cheerleading! Mariko Konjo, pep leader extraordinaire, is fixing to put a hurt on Akane...and Ranma can't allow that. But is he willing to pick up a pair of pom-poms to stop her?
Ranma's got the basic moves down, sure, and that uniform really is cute, but then it turns out that it's Kuno's kendo match he has to cheer for. No way! Worse, Mariko's crush on the so-called 'Blue Thunder' means the only way Ranma can win-and avenge Akane's honor-is to somehow best Mariko in a cheerleading contest. Under these circumstances, how cheerful can Ranma be expected to be?!
During an annual cleaning of the estate, Kuno comes across an ancient taiko drum that's got the devastating power of a howitzer. And what good is a weapon if you don't turn it on your friends, right? As if that weren't enough, now Kodachi's got an equally devastating lute...which she promptly turns over to the principal. Cue the music!
Ryoga encounters Checkers (Shirokuro) a black and white dog. The dog saves P-chan when they went over a waterfall, so Ryoga starts to take care of the dog and feed it. The dog takes a love letter Ryoga had written out of his backpack and delievers it to Akane. Akane doesn't know who the letter is from because Ryoga didn't sign it, but gives Checkers a letter to give to return. The letter said that she had someone that she loved, and was sorry she couldn't return the writers feelings. Ryoga is horrified when he reads this, but then Ranma asks him if he had signed the letter Akane read. Upon realizing that he hadn't, Ryoga believes that the 'somebody' Akane is talking about is actually him.
While on their way home from school, Akane and Ranma discover a strange fish in a puddle. Dr. Tofu tells Ranma he should take it home and use it for a class project he has to do. Kasumi invites Dr. Tofu to come stay with them because of the tsunami that is about to hit. Once they get home, they realize the fish is actually an infant dragon. Dr. Tofu learns that the dragons meat will grant immortality, and the Frogman (from episode 100) arrives and tries to eat the dragons meat.
While visiting Mrs. Tendo's grave Ranma begins to wonder about his own mother. Nodoka Saotome, Ranma's mother, had just sent a postcard telling the Tendos she was going to visit. Ranma is quite eager to meet his mother, but Genma explains to everyone that he made a promise to Nodoka when Ranma was first born. He made a death pact to Nodoka, which states that Ranma, be either reared as man among men or they be put to the sword. Genma and Ranma decide to hide their true identities and tell Nodoka that Ranma is actually Ranko, a cousin of the Tendos.
Nodoka's stay is rather short, and Ranma hears that she is planning on returning home soon. He decides that he would really like for her to meet him as himself rather than as Ranko. Genma warns Ranma and constantly tries to stop him. When a water main explodes and sends Nodoka flying, Ranma saves her and Nodoka catches a glimpse of her son before passing out. When she awakens, she sees Ranko and thinks it was all a dream. Nodoka says that in her dream Ranma was very manly. Ranma tells Akane that he will wait until he can be normal before he tells his mother the truth. At the end, Ranma and Akane head off to school, and then turn towards the screen and say 'Goodbye!'.
