"You're the only man I consider my rival, Ryoga..."
The "Mark of the Gods" (actually a doodle representing a school of martial-arts calligraphy) is now upon Ryoga, and the only way he can lose the doodle is to lose a fight - hopefully to Ranma!
Fox Fu, Feline Fu, Flat-Frog Fu - not one of Ranma's "ultimate desperation strikes" seems to be working! For Akane, it's just too crazy to believe that P-chan may secretly be Ryoga! Better use some extra-hot water to wash that doodle off P-chan, though, just in case...
