It was one ngày before New năm arrived. At the Tendos’ living room…
“Hello! Is anybody home? You’ve got mail!” – A postman knocked the door.
“I’ll get it.” – đã đưa ý kiến Ranma. The postman gave him a yellow poster that said: “You are welcomed to our Royal New năm party tonight at our restaurant! There is going to be delicious food, great games for guests, wonderful New năm Countdown, etc, and the most amazing…
OUR EXCITING hát 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 bạn 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 năm party at the restaurant nearby, so… What do bạn think? Do I look good?”
“Hmm… bạn look so…” – Answered Ranma. – “…”
“Ouch.” – đã đưa ý kiến Ranma, after being hit bởi Akane with a trà table.
Ranma stood up and took a real close look at Akane. And suddenly, his sight stopped at her chest.
“Hey Ranma! What are bạn looking at?” – Asked Akane.
“Nothing… It’s just… Where did bạn get that little badge?” – Ranma asked and pointed at her blue heart-shaped badge.
“If bạn want to know, Ryoga-kun bought it for me!” – Akane replied. – “What do bạn say about it?”
“UUUUURRRRGGGHHH… that little idiot Ryoga… He bought Akane… a HEART-SHAPED badge!!!” – Thought Ranma. He replied: “Well… it’s nice… It goes great with your dress…”
“Really? Thank you, Ranma!” – Akane smiled.
“KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK!”
“Oh. I’ll get it!” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane.
“Ohh, nihao Ranma!” – Shampoo in a pretty red Chinese-styled dress arrived with a big gift box on her hands. – “Shampoo have New năm gift for you!”
“Th… thank you.” – Replied Ranma. – “Says, what’s with the dress up there?”
“Aiyaaa! I wear beautiful dress because I going to New năm party at the restaurant nearby! Ranma take me there yes?”
“Hey!!!” – Akane đã đưa ý kiến angrily.
“Ranma open gift now yes?”
“Okay…” – Ranma carefully opened the gift box. There was a lovely black tuxedo in it.
“Ranma put tux on and take me to party yes?”
“I’ll think about it.” – Replied Ranma.
“By the way Ranma, there going to be hát contest at the party! Winner receive a free trip to…”
“To China, right? Yes!… Then I can get a cure for this crazy curse! I’m putting on my tux right away, Shampoo!” – Ranma đã đưa ý kiến in excitement.
“I no remember. I guess it is to China.” – đã đưa ý kiến Shampoo. – “Oh! Ranma! Hurry up and take me to party!”
“Akaneeee…!!! What was the big idea??!!!!” – Shouted Ranma in female form.
“I’m sorry Ranma, but we’re out of hot water!” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane.
“Aiyaaa… That mean Ranma no can wear tux?” – Shampoo đã đưa ý kiến in disappointment.
“Hmm, this should be easy. Watch this… Ta-da!” – Ranma put on an trái cam, màu da cam dress within a few seconds. – “I’m not sure I can sing well, but I may win the contest with my cuteness!”
“Ranma, bạn are a jerk…” – Grunted Akane. – “Hey Shampoo, I think I’m starting to doubt about this… What if the whole thing is one of Mousse’s evil schemes on stealing bạn back from Ranma? Seriously.”
“Aiyaaa! It no is kem dùng cho tóc, mousse plan! He gone back to China for training!” – Answered Shampoo.
“Oh, thank goodness…” – đã đưa ý kiến Ranma. Suddenly, a strange masked man appeared behind them: “Who đã đưa ý kiến that?”
“Okay… Who are you?” – Asked Ranma.
“I am…” – The man took off his mask. – “You still remember Mousse, don’t you? He hasn’t gone back to China for training. He is standing right here in front of you, and he was on the ceiling for the whole time! He heard that the three of bạn are going to a New năm party, and Shampoo, it’ll be a pleasure for this man to escort bạn there…” – While saying, kem dùng cho tóc, mousse opened his arms and hugged Ranma.
“Put your glasses on, idiot!” – Ranma whacked kem dùng cho tóc, mousse on the head with one of her shoes. –
“Shampoo is on your left!”
“Oh… Shampoo, forgive me.” – kem dùng cho tóc, mousse đã đưa ý kiến after putting on his glasses.
“Shampoo no want forgive stupid Mousse.” – Shampoo đã đưa ý kiến in anger.
“Hey, there is a good news for you, silly con vịt, vịt boy.” – đã đưa ý kiến Ranma. – “There is a hát contest at the party tonight, and the winner gets a free trip to China. Do bạn wanna cure your curse?”
“Yes, I do! If I win, I will never have to turn into a con vịt, vịt again! Yeah!!” – kem dùng cho tóc, mousse shouted out loud in excitement.
“But wait!” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane. – “Are bạn sure bạn can sing? It’s a hát contest, my friend.”
“Yes I am. Let me try.” – He took a deep breath and began. – “WE WIIIISH… YOUU… A MERRY CHRISTMAAAAAAS!!! WE WISH YOUUUU A MERRYYYYY CHRIIIIIIIISTMAS!!! WEEE… WISH bạn A MEEEEERRY CHRISTMAS!!! And a Happy… NEEEEEWWW…
“Oh my god… Akane fainted! Shampoo, give me a cup of water!” – Ranma đã đưa ý kiến in panic.
“HEY!” – Shampoo furiously shouted. – “Mousse cut it out!!!! bạn break our ear!!!”
“Tell me about it.” – Ranma agreed. – “How can bạn cure your con vịt, vịt curse if bạn SOUND like a con vịt, vịt yourself? Hahaha…”
“Ranma… How dare you…” – kem dùng cho tóc, mousse took out dozens of daggers from his sleeves.
“Stop it! Shampoo sing better than Mousse! I can win the contest!” – Replied Shampoo.
“Prove it.” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane.
“Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! Oh what fun it is tonight in a one-horse open sleigh! Hey! Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! Jingle all the way! Oh what fun it is tonight in a one-horse open sleigh!” – Shampoo sang with such a sweet high-pitched voice.
“Bravo! Bravo! That’s a nice performance!” – Ranma excitedly gave an applause.
“Hey Shampoo, why don’t bạn think that I can sing better than you?” – Akane đã đưa ý kiến after hitting Ranma with a trà table.
“Akane prove it!” – Replied Shampoo.
“Happy New Year, Happy New Year! May we all have a vision now and then, of the world where every neighbor is a friend… Happy New Year, Happy New Year! May we all have our hopes, our will to try… If we don’t, we might as well lay down and die…” – Akane suddenly stopped and pointed at Ranma on the floor. – “Like that BAKA!!!!”
“Hmm… It sure is great… bạn do have a beautiful voice, Akane!” – đã đưa ý kiến Mousse.
“Huh. I challenge you, Akane!” – đã đưa ý kiến Shampoo.
“Oh, I accept!” – Replied Akane. – “What are bạn waiting for? LET’S FIGHT!!!!”
“This is too idiotic. Come on Mousse, hoặc we’ll be late for the party!” – đã đưa ý kiến Ranma, as she and kem dùng cho tóc, mousse left the house.
“Ranma wait for me!!!” – Yelled Shampoo.
“Huh. Go with your beloved husband. I don’t care.” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane.
“Aiyaaa! Akane want defeat me in hát contest yes?” – Replied Shampoo.
“Okay… I’m going…” – Answered Akane.
As the group went down the street, they heard a strange voice singing: “I wanna wish bạn a Merry Christmas, I wanna wish bạn a Merry Christmas, I wanna wish bạn a Merry giáng sinh from the bottom of my heart! Oh, is that Akane Tendo? Along with the beautiful Pigtailed Girl? Oh my sweethearts, I shall escort bạn two to the Royal New năm party!”
“It’s Kuno… Don’t mind everyone, just act as if he were not here!” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane, and all four of them just kept their head down. Suddenly…
“Pigtailed Girl! I tình yêu bạn so much! I want bạn to come with me to the par…”
“EEEK! He hugged me from behind!!” – Screamed Ranma. She kicked him hard in the face. – “What do bạn want, bạn jerk Kuno?!!”
“I want to have a ngày with my beautiful ladies!” – Kuno replied in tears.
“You... you…” – Ranma almost kicked him again and suddenly changed her voice: “Heyyy, Kuno-sembai! bạn wanna have a ngày with me, right? If bạn beat me in a hát challenge, I promise I’ll go out with you! If bạn lose…”
“You’ll leave in PEACE and in PIECES!” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane.
“Why don’t bạn go first, Kuno-darling?” – Asked Ranma.
“Okay, here I go. Feliz Navidad…” – Kuno began singing. Meanwhile, Akane, Ranma, Shampoo and kem dùng cho tóc, mousse silently walked away.
“Phew. Luckily we run away. Kuno worse singer than Mousse!” – Shampoo breathed hardly.
“Tell me about it. He totally broke my ears!” – kem dùng cho tóc, mousse agreed.
“Just run away before Kuno finds out, guys.” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane, and the group ran as fast as they can.
As the pack continued their walk, they heard a strange voice again: “La la la la, la la la la, la la la la…”
“I heard that extremely high voice somewhere… Uh-oh, Kodachi Kuno is coming! What are we gonna do?” – Ranma confusedly asked.
“I know! Guys, cover your ears! Mousse, sing right now!” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane.
“Okay, if bạn insist. Ahem… WEE… WIIIIISH…”
“AAAAHHH!!! What is that HOOOORIBLE sound! Oh, it is killing me! HEEELP ME, RANMA-SAMA, IF bạn CAN HEAR ME FROM HERE!! AAAAHHH!!” – Kodachi screamed and fainted.
“Thanks a lot, pal.” – Ranma smiled.
“Get serious, guys. Do I sing that badly?” – Asked Mousse.
“No. Not at all.” – Ranma replied, while she was thinking: “Oh man, I swear his voice sounds like a horn!”
They continued walking down the đường phố, street and encountered Mikado Sanzenin and Azusa Shiratori.
“Oh, is that the beautiful Ranma Saotome? Oh, my lovely girl, I shall give bạn a Happy New năm Kiss for tonight!” – Sanzenin đã đưa ý kiến as he began to get his lips closer to Ranma’s.
“JERK! Who đã đưa ý kiến that bạn can Kiss me?!” – Ranma punched Sanzenin right in the left eye. – “Leave us alone!”. Meanwhile, Azusa takes a close look at kem dùng cho tóc, mousse and finally climbed up on his back.
“Aahh! So cute! Olivia! Olivia! Give me my Olivia! GIMME! GIMME! GIMME!” – Azusa took out her hammer and smacked Mousse’s head at every “GIMME!”. Well, bạn know, she wanted Mousse’s glasses – which she calls “Olivia” – and tried to take them off from his forehead.
“Spoiled brat!” – Shampoo angrily shouted as she knocked Azusa off from Mousse’s back. – “Why bạn mess with Mousse?”
“Shampoo! You’re finally worried about me!” – Cried Mousse.
“The legendary Golden Pair.” – đã đưa ý kiến Akane. – “I challenge you! If bạn want to mess with us, bạn must beat us in a hát challenge right now! We will go first! Start now, guys!”
“Silent night, Holy night…”
“Huh. bạn guys are such amateurs!” – đã đưa ý kiến Azusa.
“Listen carefully, losers.” – Sanzenin smiled as if he won. And then, the pair began: “... Oh what fun it is tonight in a one-horse open sleigh!!!”
“That was… perfect!” – Ranma đã đưa ý kiến in disappointment.
“Aiyaa! What we do now?” – Shampoo confusedly asked.
“Hey! There’s a lovely little bird!” – Ranma pointed to the sky.
“Where? Where? Where’s the bird? I WANT MY HANNAH!! AAAHHH!!!” – Azusa began to cry.
“Let’s go, guys.” – Akane đã đưa ý kiến and the pack walked away in peace.
The Royal New năm party at Sakura restaurant.
“And now, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for our hát contest!” – đã đưa ý kiến the host.
“Okay guys. Who’s gonna do this?” – Asked Akane.
“Mousse, if bạn go there, I splash you!” – Shampoo threatened kem dùng cho tóc, mousse and said: “I want compete!”
“Hmm… I think I’ll let Ranma do this. This “winning a trip to China” thing is all HIS idea, so I’ll let him compete using his “cuteness”. Let’s see if that idiot wins…” – Akane pushed Ranma onto the stage.
“That girl is so cute!”
“I’m cheering hard for you, Pigtailed Girl!”
“Eh? Kuno? What is that jerk doing here?” – Thought Ranma.
“So, what’s your name?” – The host asked her.
“Um… I’m Ranma Saotome.” – Replied Ranma.
“Ladies and gentlemen, lovely Ranma Saotome here is going to give us a great performance! A big applause please!!!”
“Woo-hoo! Go Pigtailed Girl!” – Kuno’s shout must be the loudest one of all, and that gives Ranma a thought: “Yeah, if I win the contest, I can go to China and get rid of this stupid curse, and there would be no thêm “Pigtailed Girl”! I can do this! I CAN DO THIS!!!”
And here we go, Ranma began her performance:
“Happy New Year! Happy New Year! May we all have a vision now and then, of the world where every neighbor is a friend… Happy New Year! Happy New Year! May we all have our hopes, our will to try… If we don’t, we might as well lay down and die…
bạn and I!
“Such a sweet singer, don’t bạn think?”
“I think she’ll win the contest for sure!”
“Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the hát contest tonight is… Ranma Saotome!!!”
“Oh my god… am I dreaming? Akane, slap me!” – đã đưa ý kiến Ranma.
“Hee hee! No, you’re not!” – Akane giggled after slapping Ranma’s right cheek really hard.
“Akane, you’re so uncute!” – Ranma replied. Akane slapped her other cheek.
“I’m not a con vịt, vịt any more… La la la…”
“Aiyaaa! kem dùng cho tóc, mousse begin singing! Ranma, cover his mouth! ” – đã đưa ý kiến Shampoo.
“Heyyy… What is the meaning of this?!” – kem dùng cho tóc, mousse angrily đã đưa ý kiến with his mouth covered bởi Ranma. Akane and Shampoo burst laughed.
“And the winner received a trip to…”
“RANMAAAAA!!! bạn HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS!!!” – kem dùng cho tóc, mousse furiously shouted and sneezed: “Ah choo!!! What are we going to do?”
“Ranma, what the meaning of this?” - Shampoo also angrily asked.
“Forggg… give me, gggg… guys!” – Ranma shook under the freezing cold wind and snow. – “I didn’t knnnnn… now that th… th.. ah choo! This was a trip to… to… MOSCOW!!!!!”
“Ranma…” – Akane shook under fury. – “RANMA NO BAKAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!”
“Aahh!!! AKANEEEEE!!! St… t… hàng đầu, đầu trang it, would you! Ah CHOOOOOO!!!”
