While out on the town, Ranma and Akane meet up with Nabiki, Soun and Genma and they all decide to eat at a local restaurant. Soun calls home to tell Kasumi that she does not need to cook dinner for them tonight. Unfortunately Kasumi has cooked a large meal for everyone and her disappointment is palpable over the phone. Can Ranma and co. manage to make it up to her?
At the Shopping MallEdit
Kasumi is at the Tendo Dojo, preparing some food. Meanwhile, Akane and Ranma are at a shopping mall where they happen to meet up with Soun, Nabiki and Genma (who's in his panda form). The five of them go to have lunch at a local restaurant. After having their fill Soun phones the Dojo in order to tell Kasumi that she doesn't need to make dinner since they've already eaten. However, Kasumi simply replies "oh. I see" and hangs up. This response greatly worries Soun and Genma, however, Ranma doesn't understand what's going on.
Returning to the DojoEdit
Ranma is then told that Kasumi is upset. At first Ranma is very skeptical because of how nice Kasumi always is. The group then return to the Dojo and see that none of the lights are on. This makes Soun hope that this means no one's home. When they enter the house Nabikie and Akane find a Vase that appears to have been deliberately knocked over. Meanwhile, Ranma and Genma find a knife that's been stabbed into the floor.
All five of the group then enter the living room they find dinner still on the table. Nabiki then says that they're the one's to blame for Kasumi being upset, Akane then imagines that it must've Kasumi must've knocked over the Vase and stuck the knife into the floor after hearing from Soun that they'd eaten out after she'd stayed behind, made dinner and waited for them.
Nabiki, however, is unimpressed with Akane's fantasy and thinks that Kasumi wouldn't do something like that. Soun then hears a creaking upstairs. Akane and Ranma go into Kasumi's room to see how she is, but when they enter they see Kasumi has a has no lights on so they quickly leave.
Akane and Ranma then tell Soun that Kasumi is angry. This causes Soun to go into a panic, while everyone else tries to think of a time that Kasumi has been angry and no one (not even Soun) can think of a time she's been angry. Soun then decides they have to get Kasumi back into a good mood, which Akane agrees to by saying that if they all say they're sincerely sorry she'll forgive them. They all then begin preparing a party for Kasumi, with Ranma, Soun and Genma preparing the decorations; while Nabiki and Akane make the food.
Akane decides to make a cake while Nabiki makes some tea. However, due to Akane's poor cooking skills she causes the Micorwave to explode and knock into Nabiki. This, in turn, causes Nabiki to drop Akane's Favourite Cup. Back in the living room, Ranma asks Soun if he realises that they're using the wool from the Sweater Kasumi's knitting as string to hold up the decorations.
Soun then says he needs to leave on an urgent business trip. Genma then turns back into his human form and tells Ranma they're going on a training journey, to which Ranma quickly agrees to. Just as the three of them are about to leave, Kasumi comes downstairs and tells them to stop. Hearing this causes Ranma, Genma and Soun to hide until Kasumi returns back to her room. Nabiki and Akane then emerge from their hiding places as well. Nabiki then says it's a bit wrong for them all to run away, the group then decide that they need a human sacrifice.
Ranma is quickly selected as the sacrifice. However, Akane disapproves of Ranma being sent alone and offers him a a good luck charm that she'd sewed together, despite this Ranma just asks how that's meant to be able to save him. The group then hear a noise coming from up the corridor, so then send their sacrifice to see what it is. Genma kicks Ranma in order to leave him behind while the rest of the group hide outside. When Ranma lands he looks and see's Kasumi looking at him in shock. A loud scream coming from Ranma can be heard by the others outside.
The group continue to hear Kasumi saying "Now I've got you... you won't be escaping this time!" along with Ranma's continuing screams. Soun and Genma can't much more, Akane then yells to Kasumi to stop. Just then the front doors collapse as Ranma falls through them. At first the group look up and see Kasumi holding a cat in her arms.
Kasumi Explains AllEdit
Kasumi then explains that she knew that Ranma didn't like Cat's so she tried to get rid of it before they came home. She then has a flashback to the Cat coming into the house, knocking over the Vase and knife. The flashback continues to Kasumi in her room trying to dry the Cat off after it got wet from knocking over the Vase. The six of them are then back in the living room, as Nabiki asks just who it was who said that Kasumi was angry. Soun then says that because of all this mess Kasumi's sweater and Akane's cup are ruined. This angers Kasumi and she asks who did this, which causes everyone else to go back into a panic.
The group then use Ranma as a scapegoat. Kasumi then pokes Ranma's head and tells him not to do that, she also calls him "Me". Ranma is surprised that that's what Kasumi's like when she's angry. Afterwards, Kasumi wonders if she was too harsh, while Genma describes her as a perfect saint.
