Part 2: Prelude to Defeat: Cologne tells Ranma he cannot master the technique. Akane asks Ryoga to help raise Ranma's spirits. Ranma dresses up in female form as a girl again and fools Ryoga for a while. Later Ranma is able to use the technique on his father, but can't figure out why it worked.

Part 3: Unlucky Blow: Ranma figures out how it works and he and Ryoga keep using it on each other. Cologne tries to warn the two of them that perfecting the technique can be very dangerous to them.

Part 6: The Weight of Victory: Ranma manages to trick Ryoga and uses the power of the technique against Ryoga and defeats him.

Part 7: New Year's Curse: Shampoo makes a ramen delivery to a cat temple and it's obvious the haunted cat from an earlier book is there. The cat has cursed Shampoo to turn into a cat whenever she passes a rope around the shrine. Ranma has to rescue Shampoo or she'll become a cat forever.
