Relation to the Previous Episode
This is the first appearance of Azuza since P-Chan Explodes! The Icy Fountain of Love!, the conclusion of the Martial-Arts Figure Skating Tournament. Due to this, Akane notes P-chan is remaining in hiding out of his fear of Azuza.
Azusa Shiratori takes home a tanuki statue Kuno is trapped in and adopts him, believing he is the tanuki and renaming him Marianne. When Azusa suspects Akane is trying to take Kuno away, another martial arts ice-skating battle ensues: Azusa versus Ranma and Akane.
