Three days in the life of Ranma and the Tendo family.

In the first story, Shampoo gets a hold of a mystical enchanted jewel which effects the mood of the wearer depending on how it is worn. Cologne attempts to use said jewel to try to get Ranma to declare his feelings for her great-granddaughter, Shampoo..... Like any sort of enchanted jewel has enough power to do that!?!?!

In the second story, Kris Kringle convinces Kasumi, one of the Tendo girls, to hold a Christmas party and the ever resourceful Nabiki, another one of the Tendo girls, holds an auction for private time with Ranma. Among other things.....

The third story... Gasp! With the hard written cookbook of her mother, will Akane finally learn how to cook?!?! Well, perhaps.... She does manage to not burn the water by the end of the episode.

The second tape consists of more adventures in the life of Ranma and the Tendo household.

In the fourth OAV... We meet Yet Another Odd and Bazaar person in the form of Miss Hinako. Ramna meets another student of The Anything-Goes Martial Arts school of martial arts who he seems to be unable to defeat.

In the fifth and sixth OAV... Food is being stolen all over town, and the culprits appear to be daughters of Soun Tendo, who he didn't know existed. Now it is a fight to see who will inherit the Tendo Dojo and the Anything-Goes Martial Arts school.
