When the monk-in-residence of a faraway temple is only too eager to "give" Ranma, Genma and Soun a legendary martial-arts outfit said to endow its wearer with ultimate power, you'd think they'd know something is up. But then again, the monk did throw in such other lovely gifts...
Back at the Tendo Dojo, the true nature of the outfit is revealed: the dogi chooses its own wearer! The outfit picks Akane - much to Ranma's chagrin - and what once was a minor annoyance turns into an issue of pride when Ranma is unable to defeat Akane in battle. Will he have to confess his true feelings to get through to her?
