The mayhem continues in Ranma 1/2 Set 6. A mysterious young man who uses pantyhose as a weapon steals the Jusenkyo guestbook and kidnaps Akane. In order to save her, Ranma teams up with Ryoga, Mousse, and Shampoo, but the young man, like Ranma, also undergoes a transformation when splashed with cold water. After that, monsters escape from strange hanging scrolls and cause chaos around town. The only way to stop them is for Ranma to go on a date with a scribbled panda that has also come out of a scroll. Finally, Ukyo stays at the Tendo Dojo to recover from the shock of a ruined okonomiyaki sauce that has been marinating for ten years. Could Ranma, who is acting strangely kind around Ukyo, have something to do with that too?
