It was one day before New Year arrived. At the Tendos’ living room…
“Hello! Is anybody home? You’ve got mail!” – A postman knocked the door.
“I’ll get it.” – Said Ranma. The postman gave him a yellow poster that said: “You are welcomed to our Royal New Year party tonight at our restaurant! There is going to be delicious food, great games for guests, wonderful New Year Countdown, etc, and the most amazing…
OUR EXCITING SINGING CONTEST!!!
THE WINNER RECEIVES A LOVELY PRIZE!”
“Hmm… A lovely prize for the winner huh…” – Ranma speaks to himself. – “I wonder what it is…”
Suddenly, a voice came out from upstairs: “Whoa! It looks great on you indeed, Akane!”
“Hey!” – Shouted Ranma. – “What’s going on?”
“Hmm… Ranma…” – Akane – in her brand new cute blue dress – appeared behind him. – “I got an invitation to a New Year party at the restaurant nearby, so… What do you think? Do I look good?”
