NG Jules Ewo Ayeka

  • She has a rarely seen mischievous streak within NG Jules Ewo Ayeka however, and takes great delight in fooling the older girls. However, she could not help the situation just by defending herself. In designing RyokoKajishima and Hayashi were inspired by the American sitcom I Dream of Jeannie and wanted to use her in their works. Graduating from M. During a brief stopover on Earth, the Kamidake II NG Jules Ewo Ayeka was surprised that Neju had showed up at Seina's new home built from the interest accrued from an account of his pay and sent to his family.

Interested in the full Ayeka manifesto? Tenchi suffers a great deal of stress as he tries his hardest to be a gentleman while most of the women within the household will take every opportunity to display their attraction for him.

    Tenchi also found out around this time that he has an year-old sister named Tennyo Masaki , who looks like his late mother, Kiyone. Tenchi then learned from his grandfather, Katsuhito , that since Earth is a developing civilization, the Masaki clan must keep their true presence hidden since they do not age at the same rate as Earthlings, and those who are born into the Masaki family are also kept from these secrets until they come of age which is when they reach adulthood. After a climatic battle between the three Goddesses, the truth behind everything has happened was linked to the three.

    They decided to change the time line in order to repair the damage that they have done, and Tenchi, in his changed time line, doesn't get to meet Noike. However, Noike, along with Fuku, traveled into the past and altered the message Mihoshi was to send to her family the message was originally altered by Z so that she would meet Tenchi.

    Tenchi is the most powerful character in the series, but is too young and immature to have full control over his Light Hawk Wings and other abilities. He is a competent swordsman and martial artist capable of superhuman feats thanks to his Juraian blood, but has only displayed his more unusual talents during dire situations, such as his duel with Kagato , the escape from a black hole, and the final confrontation with Z.

    The full extent of Tenchi's powers is absolutely infinite, as he was stated outright by the Choushin to be as powerful compared to them, who created all the rest of existence, and were classified to be beyond all dimensional space and definition, as they are to ordinary beings.

    When he started to manifest his higher self, it almost automatically destroyed all of existence itself, forcing the Goddesses, and his own trained future self, to step in and prevent a catastrophe in the new "altered" timeline, when Noike secretly fired the Choubimaru's cannon to collide with the Earth, again to preserve her future, Tenchi projects his Light Hawk Wings to stop it, a total of six wings, rather than the usual 3 wings he had before event.

    Tenchi is the human avatar of a dimensionally boundless entity, as powerful compared to the three hyper-dimensional Goddesses as they are to ordinary beings. Tenchi's higher self is the supreme being of the Tenchi Muyo continuity and all its parallel universes, unfathomably transcends infinity by 3-dimensional standards, and has been stated to be above, outside, and beyond even the hyperdimension that they occupy.

    It easily put a stop to Tenchi almost destroying all of existence, and similarly effortlessly negated the Counter-Actor, the embodiment of the sum total counterforce to the Choushins' experiments in dimensional space over trillions of years.

    Though Tenchi is not bonded to a royal tree, he is considered a contender for the Jurai throne determined by election of the four royal families due both to his status as successor to First Prince Yosho who was a contender due to his status and 1st Generation Royal Tree and his singular ability among the Jurai to create Lighthawk Wings on his own.

    However Tenchi displays little interest in Jurai politics. In Kajishima Onsens , [2] a series of doujins by creator Masaki Kajishima, it is revealed that Tenchi does have multiple children with the various girls, most notably, Ryoko. The fans have dubbed the daughter of Ryoko and Tenchi as Tenko, appearing in a single pic with her half-sister, Ryo-ohki's daughter. There are no words in this doujin, but it is a short story about 10 pages of the daughters growing up and their continued developing relationship with Seina's son, whom, in the last pic, they both marry.

    Ayeka and Ryoko have developed a sisterly bond as they both care for each other's child as their own and shown to be very protective of their children when they find out about their daughters infatuation with Seina's son. Ryoko is shown embarrassed when she notices that it is time for her daughter to get a bra. In another doujin, Tenchi has a son who has a striking resemblance to Washu, although the boy's mother is never explicitly revealed. There are multiple doujins by creator Kajishima, but none are translated into English as of GXP is a spinoff continuation following the 3rd OVA series, but Tenchi himself does not play a prominent role in this series.

    The GP tried to recruit Tenchi, but they got Seina instead. Tenchi showed no interest in joining the GP. He only appears in a speaking role in Episode 17, wherein his old friend Seina Yamada comes to his house to see Washu Hakubi to talk about the cabbit Fuku that she had given him.

    During his visit Tenchi is able to cook a meal for Seina, however, Seina is on call and has to be retrieved before he has a chance to eat Tenchi's cooked meal. Tenchi also showed that he can move incredibly fast during a race with Seina, since he can keep up with him despite Seina having drastic body enhancements and going downhill on a bicycle. Tenchi, as well as the other girls, also appear in a brief cameo in Episode 26 in which they attend Seina's wedding.

    In the first TV series, Tenchi Universe , Tenchi is similar in personality to the Tenchi of the OVA, but has no powers beyond the ability to use Tenchi-ken and, apparently, the blessing of his royal ancestors should he decide to take Jurai's throne. Tenchi does attend school, but it is a long commute for him because he lives at his family's shrine in the mountains. After finding out about his grandfather's true identity and defeating Kagato , Tenchi chose to turn down the Jurai throne and head back to Earth, after realizing that like his grandfather before him he wants to live a simple life without much responsibility.

    Although Tenchi was bored with living on Earth again without the girls around, he is surprised when they return and Ryoko reminds Tenchi that although a carnival would eventually leave, it would always come back again. He has no connections to Jurai and the sword is created from seven gems which he inherited from his late mother.

    Ryoko separated the gems to prevent the sword from being used against her again. Each of the six girls took one of the gems as a keepsake. Tenchi moved to Tokyo to train as a Shinto priest under a friend of his grandfather's. Eventually, Tenchi got tired of the girls' frequent visits and ordered them never to disturb him again. At the end of the series, Tenchi finds out that his family are the Planet Guardians whose job is to protect the planet from evil forces when the need arises.

    Although it was hard for Tenchi after learning about Sakuya Kumashiro 's true identity, Tenchi was able to unite the gems together and chose to confront Yugi alone feeling that he was partly responsible for what happened. With some help from Ryoko, Ayeka, Mihoshi, and Kiyone, Tenchi caught up to Yugi and chose to spare her and give her a second chance. Tenchi explained she should have come to the Masaki Shrine in the first place and become friends with him and the others rather than to wallow away in loneliness.

    After the final battle, Tenchi moved back to the Masaki shrine. He is the center of attention for his classmates, Ryoko Orikasa and Ayeka Takada, to the point where they would fight each other for his affections. When Pretty Sammy was having trouble against the Ryoko and Ayeka Love Love Monsters, Tenchi was able to get through to them by apologizing to them for not choosing between them.

    Even after Sammy turned them back to normal Tenchi still had to deal with Ryoko and Ayeka's bickering as he doesn't understand true love yet. Tenchi was having problems with the production as he was starting out as a director, until Sasami decided to help by guest starring on a Cool Rangers episode as Pretty Sammy. This helped save his career. Sasami developed a crush on him, but was heartbroken, after she learned that Tenchi already has a girlfriend, and that he was moving away when he was given a job offer as a theatrical director.

    While details of her character differ between the various series, Ryoko is typically shown as an attractive, semi-reformed powerful space pirate who is madly in love with the series main character, Tenchi Masaki. In the various series, Ryoko is portrayed as being impulsive, hedonistic with a penchant for sake , poor-mannered, often immodest, recklessly violent, and hot-tempered although she sometimes reveals her more emotional and vulnerable side.

    In the anime, Ryoko universally holds an intense rivalry with the character Ayeka , who also fights for Tenchi's affections. Often the conflict between the two comes out of their decidedly different personalities, with Ryoko being the tomboyish troublemaker and Ayeka being the well-mannered, but often snooty aristocrat.

    The level of the rivalry can vary between being equitable to a pair of bickering siblings to an all-out feud. While the name Ryoko is a common feminine given name in Japan , in this instance it is written with very uncommon kanji.

    She was created by Washu , using one of her egg cells as a base, so she is indirectly raised in a tube with no contact with Washu Washu's daughter.

    She has three red gems that are the source of her full energy, which also came from Washu when she imbued them with her godly powers in her early life. As a character, Ryoko is very emotional. She easily gets upset, and is short tempered, especially around Ayeka. While she was trapped in the cave, she was able to create an astral body and venture to the entrance of the cave. She watched Tenchi grow up over the years, and she wished more than anything to be with him and hoped that she and Tenchi would play together.

    It was also implied that Tenchi could sense Ryoko's presence even though he could not see her. This could quite possibly explain the boy's fascination with the cave.

    However, the way she introduced herself to him was terribly frightening to Tenchi, so he distanced himself from her for a long time.

    Also, when Washu is first introduced she tells Ryoko that she knows how she Ryoko feels about Tenchi and says that Ryoko wants to do "this and that" with Tenchi. Ryoko also has a bit of an ambiguous relation with Washu, her mother.

    When Washu first appears, she critiques her daughter's sex appeal and asks Ryoko to refer to her as "mommy". As the series progresses, she starts to fear Washu, especially when Washu starts doing some of her experiments on an unwilling Ryoko.

    In fact, Ryoko becomes slightly cautious whenever Washu is looking at her with a mischievous smile and intimidating eyes. Ryoko, when captured and electrocuted by Ayeka in Episode 2, seems to enjoy it until the point when Ayeka uses excruciating force when Ryoko was clearly in pain.

    Ayeka calls her a masochist , and Ryoko says that she was more of a sadist. Judging by the fact that her ship Ryo-Ohki destroyed twenty-eight planets and sixty-nine colonies when in Kagato's service, and by some of her taunts in the fight with Tenchi, she might not have been joking.

    Ryoko is also sometimes rather childlike, and can be a bit gullible. Since most of her life was spent either enslaved by Kagato, or sealed inside a cave, she does not have much of a range of experiences. She is also extremely sensitive about her age, being brought to tears when Ayeka called her a " mummy ". In this series, Ryoko is once again a space pirate, but she isn't a slave to anybody. She was introduced to Tenchi by crash-landing on Earth during a dogfight with Mihoshi.

    Tenchi found her and it was almost love at first sight for her, of course. We have no idea who her parents are or what her origins are; those are never revealed. Ryoko can still summon an energy sword and shoot ki blasts, she can also fly, teleport, and make copies of herself, but she can no longer summon demons.

    Gems can still be glimpsed on her wrists, however, there is no mention of them being her power source. Ryoko is generally less powerful than in the OVA, as the bounty hunter Nagi who has no superhuman powers at all is able to fight her on at least equal terms.

    Again, she's very emotional and brash, but not as much as in the OVA , and enjoys doing things to make Ayeka mad, which includes flirting with Tenchi. She also has an arch-rival, Nagi, who has her own cabbit, a male named Ken-Ohki.

    Ryo-Ohki and Ken-Ohki love each other, which complicates the lives of their mistresses. When Kagato, under the name Yosho, assumes the throne of Jurai and has her, Ayeka and Sasami arrested, it is Ryoko who correctly guesses there was a coup on Jurai while Washu on the other hand was stumped. Later, Ryoko again correctly surmises that the "Yosho" who has taken the throne is a fake. In the end, Tenchi is seen heading off for school and daydreaming about the missing Ryoko; then, to his surprise and delight, the real Ryoko returns.

    It is inferred that Ryoko was also imprisoned for years in this series during a scene between Ryoko and Ayeka where Ayeka exclaims to Ryoko "Well if your case goes to trial you won't get away with a mere years of imprisonment this time. Once again, Ryoko is a space pirate in this series. She and Washu were in the process of running away with the Jurai Lightstone, which consequently brings everybody to Tenchi's planet all at once.

    Her physical appearance is considerably different in comparison with the other series due to the artwork, which made her look more tomboyish than she used to be.

    Her attitude is also very different: she's more violent and screams a lot more, so many things get blown up around her. Ryoko's obsession over Tenchi is still there, but that's basically the only characteristic that remains consistent throughout every series.

    However, it develops to a greater extent in this series after she goes on a date with Tenchi, and later sees him with Sakuya. Her hurt feelings for Tenchi made her even abandon the group after she sees him and Sakuya kiss. She still retains the ability to summon an energy sword and fire energy blasts, but Ryo-Ohki doesn't belong to her.

    Also she cannot survive without oxygen unlike the previous series. Ryoko falls in love with Tenchi after a major battle between her and everybody else. Unfortunately, she was severely injured, but Tenchi remained by her bedside, taking care of her, and because nobody had done that for her before, it sparked her love for him there. Ryoko appears in both Pretty Sammy series in very different roles.

    She and Ayeka constantly bicker over Tenchi Kawai's affections. Ryoko is obsessed with Tenchi, to the point where she even hides out inside his bedroom for one night, and even kidnaps him and carries him off against his will. Ryoko was briefly transformed with Ayeka into one of Pixy Misa 's Love-Love Monsters in the first episode and became more obsessive over Tenchi, until Tenchi was able to get through to Ryoko, enabling Pretty Sammy to return her to normal.

    But even after that Ryoko hadn't changed. In contrast to Ryoko's usual characterization, Oryo is a dignified and honorable warrior, ready to lay down her life for Tsunami. Her appearance and powers remain roughly the same, except that Oryo has normal human ears. Fittingly, the name Oryo can be read "most honorable demon. While details of her character differ between the various series, Ayeka is typically shown as the beautiful first princess of the planet Jurai who has fallen in love with the title character, Tenchi Masaki.

    Ayeka is portrayed as being modest, well mannered, traditional, and aristocratic, but can also be snobbish her proper accent is evidence of her aristocratic upbringing. She can also be very fierce when she feels that anyone or anything she cares for is in danger, such as Tenchi or her younger sister Sasami , of whom she is very protective.

    Ayeka is a rival of Ryoko for Tenchi's affections. Often the conflict between the two comes out of their decidedly different personalities and backgrounds, with Ryoko being more blunt, open and sexual in her attempts to gain Tenchi's love.

    The level of the rivalry can vary between being equatable to a pair of bickering siblings to an all-out feud. Ryoko's teasing and efforts often bring out some of Ayeka's worse aspects. However, there are times when Ayeka puts aside her rivalry whenever Tenchi is in danger, such as the battle with Kagato. The romanization of her name in the English productions is "Ayeka" instead of "Aeka" to clarify its pronunciation for Western viewers ah-eh-ka.

    Her name is believed to be derived from aekanaru , meaning "frail" or "delicate," reflecting her usual outward demeanor. An old reading of aeka is "willowy," or "requiring the assistance of a man. Ayeka does not have Ryoko's level of power but is still quite capable in dueling most opponents, including Kagato. She is more powerful than Tenchi in his typical state, but once transformed his Juraian powers exceed hers.

    Ayeka is the First Princess of Jurai's royal family. During this series, she was on a search for her missing brother, Yosho she and Sasami are Tenchi's great aunts. When her search led her to Earth , she didn't find her brother or his ship, but did find Ryoko. Ayeka's apparent age is 20, but her true age is uncertain. It is known, however, that she was in a state of suspended animation for over years when she and Sasami arrived on Earth.

    As a result, at the start of Tenchi Muyo, she hates everything about Ryoko and considers her a monster. Ayeka possesses various superhuman powers: she can fire energy blasts, summon a very powerful forcefield , has the ability to summon guardians that also have various abilities, such as possessing arc electricity, and capturing spaceships.

    She also has the ability to fly at very high speeds and possesses superhuman strength. For the most part, Ayeka is shy, demure and proper, but can become just as violent as Ryoko. When her temper is roused, Ayeka becomes very loud and aggressive, without regard for current conditions. However, she only resorts to physical aggression with Ryoko, and even these fights have diminished over time.

    Ayeka's spaceship is named Ryu-Oh. Unfortunately, it is damaged in a crash landing on Earth after an escape attempt by Ryoko. However, due to help from Tsunami , Ayeka received a seed that would grow into a new Ryu-Oh. Ayeka had bonded with the ship shortly before Ryoko and Ryo-ohki attacked the Juraian castle, Tenju. Despite warnings made by the castle's attendants, year-old Ayeka launched the young, underdeveloped ship to fend Ryoko's attacks.

    According to the True Tenchi Novels, "Ayeka had just finished the selection ceremony and didn't have the key to help her connect with Ryu-oh. Also her ship had just equipped, thus was not fully synchronized with the external armor, so Ayeka and Ryu-oh could not fully control the power of the Royal tree. But Ayeka did not give up and continued the battle. However, she could not help the situation just by defending herself.

    It was only by virtue of the second generation Royal tree's power that she could hold off the attack, and it was also because Ryo-ohki and Ryoko were just teasing her and not fighting with full power. Ayeka is still a princess of Jurai in this series. As shy and demure as before, she seems to fall in love with Tenchi on the very first day she meets him.

    Ayeka was drawn to Earth by Mihoshi's distress signal, but once again, she finds Ryoko there as well and a massive fight eventually occurs. Here, the rivalry with Ryoko started back during their childhood, which was shown through flashbacks, with both Ayeka and Ryoko blaming each other for their problems. Again, Ayeka has a ship, Ryu-Oh , which crashlands on Earth; however, it becomes incapable of flying when it begins to regenerate, taking root to the wreckage of her old ship.

    Ayeka is a relatively minor member of the Jurai family, not the daughter of the Emperor as in the OVA. Still, after being kidnapped by Kagato and released by Tenchi, she returns to Jurai because she must remain with the Imperial Family from then on; but as the series concludes, Ayeka chooses to run away from home and rejoin Tenchi on Earth.

    In Tenchi in Tokyo , Ayeka is once again a princess of Jurai. After they crash-land onto Earth, Ayeka fights Ryoko, who turns the tide of the battle in her favor by absorbing the light stone herself; it isn't until Tenchi's intervention that Ayeka is saved. She is the pilot of the Ayesa as shown in Pioneer's subtitles , which is identical to her Ryu-Oh. Instead of being completely shy and demure, she's similar to Ryoko in terms of explosive emotions.

    She's a lot more gullible than in the other series and is occasionally ditzy. On the other hand, unlike Ryoko, she does somewhat accept that Tenchi may prefer Sakuya Kumashiro to herself and others, as she confesses to a woman named Masayo whom she and Sasami aided once.

    Unlike Ryoko, also, she decides to stay on Earth; she aids Washu with her research about Yugi she's the one who discovers Yugi's background and attempts to protect Sasami and the Masaki household, ending up seriously injured by Matori. Ayeka is the first to notice that she and the others are being unwillingly separated by Tenchi, which greatly worries her. Her powers are still similar to the other two series, except we never see her fling energy blasts. Instead, she activates her forcefield on many occasions.

    Her Guardians, Azaka and Kamidake, take on a more combative role instead. She has a crush on Tenchi Kawai. Ayeka sends her three female servants, Yuri, Yuka, and Yuma, to spy on Ryoko, who also has a crush on Tenchi.

    Ayeka is briefly transformed with Ryoko into a Love-Love Monster by Pixy Misa , and becomes more obsessive towards Tenchi until his feelings get through to Ayeka, enabling Pretty Sammy to restore Ayeka to her normal condition.

    But even after that, Ayeka's rivalry towards Ryoko over Tenchi's affections still continue. After she is not selected in the first episode, Romio disappears from the scene for a time, and later appears before Ramia to help her become queen after Pretty Sammy had restored the balance between Earth and Juraihelm, with Tsunami about to be crowned queen.

    Much to Rumiya 's protests, Ramia accepted Romio's offer and Romio kidnaps Eimi Date Sasami's classmate and turns her into her own magical girl, "Love-Me Eimy", for her plan to drain Juraihelm and earth of all magic.

    When that fails, Romio revealed her true self to Ramia and attempts to drain Juraihelm's magic with her NT System and use the stolen magic power to send earth into the sun.

    Its turns out that Romio was once a magical girl, but was unable to fix the balance between earth and Juraihelm, and since then she has felt the earth is evil and wants to destroy it.

    At the end of the series, despite her defeat, Romio hasn't given up and is now leading the Martians against Earth, as Pretty Sammy and Pixy Misa move in to stop her.

    Sasami has appeared in every Tenchi Muyo! In almost every incarnation her personality, background, primary outfits, relationships and abilities change.

    In some incarnations her art style is altered more than others, though her basic coloring and structure remaining the same. Personality and series role In most series, Sasami is the younger sister of Ayeka and so is also a princess of Jurai. She may be the most responsible of the group and takes care of all the cooking duties. She has a rarely seen mischievous streak within her however, and takes great delight in fooling the older girls.

    She has teal -colored hair tied in long pigtails with melon pink eyes though, throughout most of the original OAV and the TV series called 'Tenchi Universe' , Sasami had blue hair. Sasami has a huge fanbase following across the globe and is the inspiration for what VIZ editor Carl Gustav Horn called 'The Sasami Effect', in that any young cute girl within a cast of characters will inevitably become the most popular.

    Possible examples of this include the Sailor Moon character, Chibiusa , Takamachi Nanoha of Triangle Heart, plus many other "young" female characters in Japanese, French, and American series. Sasami's personality is more mature in the OVA than in the other continuities, and more aggressive in the second TV and the Pretty Sammy spin offs.

    OVA Tenchi Muyo! Shortly into the series, Sasami and Ayeka take to living on Earth with Tenchi's family Tenchi, his father Nobuyuki, and his mother's father Yosho, now named Katsuhito Masaki , along with the catlike creature Ryo-Ohki and three other women staying in the house. Sasami arrived on Earth by 'accident', stowing away on her sisters ship when she went looking for Yosho. She quickly became close friends with Ryo-Ohki and even Ryoko, despite that Ryoko held a blade to Sasami's throat almost as soon as they met.

    Sasami holds a dark secret within her past. Seven hundred years ago, during Ryoko's attack on Jurai, Sasami was playing around in the Royal Arboretum and took a very dangerous fall, and as a result was mortally injured, and she believed that she died that day, that she was now a copy of the 'real' Sasami. The truth is that Sasami survived her injuries when Tsunami-kami-sama , in the form of Tsunami-no-ki, assimilated her.

    Tsunami-no-ki absorbed and re-created Sasami's body in order to heal her In effect, they are now one being with two souls, and as they grow older their spirits will merge. This may account for her personality in this series. This also grants Sasami several powers that she does not possess in any other series. Through her link to Tsunami-kami-sama she is linked to every Juraian Ship and their owners, and can sense their location and status.

    She also has precognitive abilities, but unfortunately these manifest as horrible, disturbing and sometimes even bloody nightmares. When it was finally revealed, though, Ayeka said she didn't care about it and still loved Sasami just the way she was; Tenchi, Yosho and the other girls also accepted the fact.

    It should also be noted that, if needed, Sasami is an accomplished combatant, most likely taught by her mother, who is the Supreme Commander of the Royal Bodyguard, and enhanced by the link with Tsunami-no-ki, easily defeating Mashisu Makibi, who was a trained Galaxy Police officer.

    One of the cherry-like hair bands she wears is capable of becoming a battle staff. She is also known as the best tea maker in the GXP. Television and Film Tenchi Universe In the first TV series Sasami is still Ayeka's sister and princess of Jurai, but there is no mention of her parents, and Yosho along with his grandson Tenchi appears to be only a distant relative. Tsunami does not appear in this series, so Sasami has no alter-ego other than Pretty Sammy. Sasami is still an accomplished cook.

    She has a much more happy, innocent outlook on life and does not use any special powers. She is an expert games player, especially fighting video games, and takes the revived Azaka as her pupil. It is worth noting that even in her own story she starts off as a background character, only taking center stage once she has transformed. A manga companion to the second movie, Tenchi Muyo! However, according to Sasami's narration, that was only one possible future.

    With every choice they make they can change their fate. It's also told that Tenchi might not choose Sasami but she'll still care for Tenchi the same as always. Tenchi in Tokyo As with most of the characters, Sasami's personality became much louder than before. Her moods are more erratic, given to bouts of juvenile anger and sulking.

    She becomes friends with Yugi, before learning Yugi's true nature, but remains her friend until the end of the series. At the end of the series Sasami visits the now-sleeping Yugi everyday. Ryo-Ohki is also her pet in this series. The novels branch off after episode 6 of the OVA series. These novels were never translated however, so little is known about the character development in this time-line.

    Sasami's connection to Tsunami-kami-sama from the OVA is not mentioned in the film. Sasami has more screen-time as she befriends Mayuka, Tenchi and Yuzuha's the antagonist in this film genetically engineered daughter. She quickly develops a strong bond with Mayuka. The All-New Tenchi Muyo! Based on the OVA series and branching off after episode The manga series generally has a lighter attitude than the anime series and the characters personalities reflect this.

    Sasami has a much more open relationship with Tsunami-kami-sama , who herself is more breezy than her own OVA counterpart, possibly due to Sasami's influence, but more likely by Okuda-sensei wanting to write her that way.

    Sasami is the only person, in the manga or the anime, that Tenchi has said the words "I love you" to. In volume 5 of the second manga series, Sasami's age is given as years; however, Sasami's age was returned to in volume 7 of the second manga series for unknown reasons.

    Possibly a mistranslation in either volume. There, she is an ordinary elementary school student who transforms into magical girl Pretty Sammy. Instead of transforming into a magical girl, she is already one who discovers that she, her best friend Misao, as well as some of her other classmates are magical girls.

    Port with a Bewitching Name is a fictional character in the Tenchi Muyo! In Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki and related works she is one of the Choushin, three Goddess-sisters and powerful beings in the story. She also appears in the series' spin-off Pretty Sammy. Here she is a candidate to become the next queen of the magical realm of Juraihelm.

    As noted above, Tsunami appears as one of the three Choushin. In fact, she has appeared in several different roles:. Tsunami-kami-sama, along with her sisters Washu -kami-sama and Tokimi -kami-sama, were in existence before time and space began, and have spent at least trillions of years working towards locating a certain individual, a being who was as powerful compared to them as they are to ordinary beings, presumably created them as an experiment, just as they created all of the rest of existence — and as such outside of and greater than even the hyperdimensional space that they inhabit.

    In fact, the sum totality of all creation was started by them after an unknown length of time spent trying to theorise the existence of such a being. They came to the conclusion that a more practical approach was needed. As opposed to our own three-dimensional space, there are 22 spatial and temporal dimensions commonly known to exist within the Tenchi Muyo!

    Multiverse, due to that there are 22 known Dimensional Supervisors, one in charge of each dimensional space. Projective geometry states that each higher-dimensional space is an infinite number of times greater than the last, and Brane cosmology states that a multiverse is 5-dimensional, so the Dimensional supervisors working for the Choushin logically at least exceed multiversal scale times infinity raised to the power of When the android Zero, who had access to the greatest scientific database in the universe, enormously more advanced than human science, is asked to analyse the Choushin Tokimi, it is stated that despite being able to create a hypothesis for any high-dimensional lifeforms, Tokimi registers as not existing at all, and as impossible to create a scientific hypothesis for even an infinite-dimensional Hilbert Space , due to being beyond dimensional space altogether.

    Little is known of Tsunami-kami-samas history before , years ago. Such massive devastation may not seem typical to the Tsunami-kami-sama known today, but her 3-dimensional shadow recently engaged in a minor fight with Tokimi-kami-sama, which destroyed almost a quarter of our galaxy all damage was later repaired when time was rewound.

    It must be remembered that the full power of the Choushin is far greater than all of existence can contain, and the sum totality of all of it combined was shown as a glowing mote of dust in comparison to the Choushin.

    She agreed to provide him with her descendants, Ouke-no-ki or "Trees of the Imperial Family". These trees were sapient and powerful beings who would 'partner' with certain Jurians, providing them with great power and long life-spans. They were also the central core of Juraian ships, acting as power source and computer core, far more powerful than anything else at the time, thus allowing Jurai to become a galactic superpower. The largest tree on Jurai, 5, meters high, the Tenju "Tree of Heaven" acts as the Royal Palace of Jurai, housing the current Emperor and his family, the main homes of all of the Imperial Houses, and the Royal Arboretum.

    It is here that all Ouke-no-ki await a partner that they will bond with. Legend has it that the Tenju was created from the giant body of Tsunami-kami-sama. Like -kami-sama , -no-ki is a suffix this is a formal version. Simply adding -ki is also acceptable , this time meaning that the name is for a tree. After creating the Tenju, Tsunami-no-ki came into being at the very base of the Royal Arboretum.

    It was from this tree that Tsunami created the first seeds that would become first generation Ouke-no-ki. It is believed that at least ten first-generation seeds have been known to exist, two of which seemed to have been created before she became Tsunami-no-ki. Of these two, one was used in the creation of a battle robot known as the 'Idol' and the other may have given to someone from outside this story's universe.

    Details from this time are sketchy at best. When Sasami was injured during Ryoko 's attack on Jurai, she landed near Tsunami-no-ki and it was here that they assimilated. Tsunami-no-ki has now been moved to become the central core of Tsunami-fune.


  • Jewish education has traditionally been content-focused and delivered from mind-to-mind, conveying information cerebrally — the more information, the better. Ayeka affirms that the goal of learning Jewish wisdom is not solely to become a more knowledgeable person. The larger goal of learning Jewish wisdom is to affect and change us, to enable us to become better people, living in the image of God. To do this, we need opportunities to acquire Jewish knowledge in such a way that it not only enters our minds, but also reaches our hearts and everyday lives.

    In episode 19, it is established that the personalities of the two are one and the same; when Sasami fears for Tenchi's safety, Tsunami must act, even at the risk of a confrontation with Tokimi.

    Tsunami has not gone from one form to another, but exists in all forms simultaneously, with the possible exception of the Tenju. In the Pretty Sammy series, Tsunami is one of the candidates to be the queen of Juraihelm.

    After she was chosen, she chose Sasami Kawai to act as her representative on Earth. In doing so, Sasami became known as the magical girl, Pretty Samy. Personalitywise, Tsunami is somewhat more like Mihoshi , a more carefree, relaxed, even slightly ditzy. For example, when she and Sasami first met, she had mistaken the music of Mozart for Beethoven.

    When Ramia used a cheesy-looking doll to stand-in for her during the episode involving Bif Standard , Tsunami actually thought it was the genuine article. Tsunami is also clueless about Ramia's efforts to derail her chances to be queen of Juraihelm. When Ramia had disappeared after a caper went wrong, Tsunami, who was grief-stricken, put up posters asking for Ramia's return.

    In Magical Project S Pretty Sammy TV , Tsunami is much the same as her series counterpart, except now with a great love for flowers; in fact, one of her goals as queen of Juraihelm was to "plant flowers across the entire galaxy". Despite this, she eventually managed to win the candidacy. Mihoshi is known as one of the finest officers in the Galaxy Police, but her career soon hit a major roadblock after an incident hinted at in the 4th episode of the 1st OVA, and the 4th episode of the 3rd one it has been alluded that the incident involved an arranged marriage, which would factor in Misao's attack later in the series.

    Now she suffers from frequent difficulties to focus on a single thought track and, due to her clumsiness, she causes a lot of collateral damage during her assignments, which eventually causes Mihoshi to be demoted. The desk of the Section 7 commander is covered with misconduct reports and bills from all the damages she causes.

    As a result, she is assigned to a special area of the galaxy, the Sol system, which is Juraian territory, in the vain hope that she wouldn't cause any more trouble.

    However, when Kagato closed in on this area, Mihoshi's immediate superior, Captain Nobeyama, assigned her to monitor the area and report if Kagato came near. However, Mihoshi misinterpreted those orders and took it upon herself to capture him, which panicked Nobeyama. But when she got near Earth, her shuttle is pulled into an energy vortex caused by a monster Ryoko had created to attack Ayeka. Mihoshi almost ends up getting sucked into the black hole the opening created if Tenchi Masaki had not caught her.

    As a result, Mihoshi stays with the Masaki family. Like all the other girls living at the Masaki home, she eventually develops an attraction toward Tenchi. When Kagato attacks, Mihoshi's causality-bending causes Washu to be released from her crystal prison on board Soja's 'reversed universe'.

    When Kagato's serpent guards attack her, Mihoshi uses her control cube in an attempt to stop them and the interference it creates somehow releases Washu. The cube's apparent function is similar to that of a Rubik's Cube , and finding the correct combination to produce a desired effect is often problematic for Mihoshi.

    Mihoshi somehow constantly enters Washu's subspace lab and breaks things, much to Washu's consternation, as she still can't figure out how Mihoshi can somehow accidentally switch dimensions and bypass all of her lab's security systems , sleeps often, eats like a pig mostly on junk food, but she exercises often , and is the luckiest officer in the Galaxy Police though she is also quite competent , though her luck sometimes spells misfortune for others some what like fellow GXP officer, Seina Yamada.

    Washu has great respect for her vast causality-bending attributes, and Mihoshi has been repeatedly referred to as the only member of the household who can defeat her.

    Mihoshi is actually the great-great-granddaughter of Washu, through her son Mikumo, although this is only stated outside the series itself, and her grandfather Minami Kuramitsu is the Grand Marshal of the Galaxy Police.

    Mihoshi's mother Mitoto also works for the Galaxy Police, as a cleaning lady. She also has a younger brother, Misao , who had married Mashisu Makibi. Whether her kinship with and ability to constantly circumvent one of the Choushin goddesses is a sign that she's yet another of the series' transcendental anomalies is unconfirmed at this point.

    However, it is noteworthy that her mother Mitoto has a reminiscent ability to subconsciously travel vast interstellar distances. Whether she shares her daughter's causality-bending talent is unknown at this point, but Minami, Mikami and Misao apparently don't. Although she tends to eat and sleep a lot, Mihoshi is very serious about her job in the G.

    P, doesn't mind helping out with regular household work, and seems better at it than Ryoko or Ayeka. She is apparently extremely observant, as she has been known to write very extensive, but very unstructured reports A duplicate report, omitting the sensitive information, was submitted in its place.

    Mihoshi's name refers to the planet "Venus", but in the Western sense as "Pretty Star", not the Chinese sense of "metal star". In OAV 3 episodes , she seems to have taken on a few of the characteristics from the other series; she becomes less competent, and appears more confused than usual though this may simply be a result of her, and much of the regular cast, having less screen time than in the other OVA episodes.

    She is a former partner of both Noike Jurai and Amane Kaunaq , who seem embarrassed by Mihoshi's affectionate behaviour, but Noike handles her through yelling and pushing her around it is not known how Amane handled Mihoshi.

    In the Tenchi Universe series, Mihoshi is partnered with Kiyone Makibi , and together, they are known as "Miho-Kiyo" a portmanteau of Miho shi and Kiyo ne; it was coined by Washu in episode 6. She is in pursuit of Ryoko until they both crash-land on Earth. Unlike her OAV counterpart, who still is dedicated and competent despite her ditziness, Mihoshi is the comic relief and a " dumb blonde " whose constant bumbling and blunders would often cause trouble for the group especially for Kiyone and Washu.

    One of her classic mistakes is when a single hair from her scalp was able to transfer her personality into Mecha Washu.

    In Tenchi in Tokyo , Mihoshi is once again partnered with Kiyone. Eventually, they were forced to crash-land on Earth after Washu detected great energy emitting from the planet. She is more or less the same as her Tenchi Universe counterpart, but she has some of the OAV qualities e. She is enrolled in college. It was also implied that she and Kiyone Amayuri have known each other since junior high, whom Mihoshi has always treated her as her best friend. In the movie Tenchi Muyo in Love, Mihoshi takes on a teaching job while remaining undercover.

    She is seen teaching an English class. Her partner Kiyone takes on a janitorial job, and is annoyed or embarrassed by Mihoshi's ditzy mannerism. Ryo-Ohki's appearance is similar to a cross between a cat and a rabbit , and for this reason Ryo-Ohki is commonly referred to as a cabbit. Ryo-Ohki also served the role of mascot for Pioneer Entertainment before that division of Pioneer Corporation became Geneon. Ryo-Ohki's appearance as what fans describe as a "cabbit", love of eating carrots, and association with the character Sasami are common among all of the series in which Ryo-Ohki appears.

    Ryo-Ohki is usually a shapechanger, but the shapes, aside from the "cabbit" form, vary according to the series. Ryo-Ohki's background and other traits vary considerably from one series to another.

    In the Tenchi Muyo! She is initially Ryoko 's spacecraft and power-conduit see below , as well as technically being Ryoko's sister they are both Masu-hybrids. She and Sasami quickly become attached to each other, however, and she generally chooses to spend her time with Sasami rather than Ryoko. She possesses the ability to transform herself into a small animal form, generally referred to as a 'cabbit', a contraction of 'cat-rabbit', which she gained after Ryoko resurrected herself in episode 1.

    However, her adult form is rarely seen, both because she has the mind of a child, and because she has trouble walking on two legs. Ryo-Ohki's personality is that of a carrot-loving animal. She also has a bit of a crush on Tenchi, though it is not exactly romantic. A dive into her mind reveals that it is filled with images of her and Tenchi harvesting carrots.

    In addition, she likes to entertain people, such as with her small dance number in Episode She has the mental state of a child, and does not appear to think beyond her next carrot or hug. Ryo-Ohki was originally created by Washu as a means for Ryoko to access and control the vast power contained within her gems, hence the small gem set in Ryo-Ohki's forehead. Seven hundred years ago, the combined power of Ryoko and Ryo-Ohki was as great as a Juraian 1st Generation ship.

    Another danger is that, despite this power, it is completely possible to mass-produce Ryo-Ohkis, which is a great fear to the Juraian Royal Family. Additionally, unlike some of the most advanced Jurian battle ships such as the Chobimaru that can use an elemental tactic for either defense or offense, Ryo-Ohki can use up to three of four elemental tactics at the same time wind, water, and fire.

    GXP , Ryo-Ohki appears in episodes 12, 15, and Also in the English anime version of episode 12, Ryo-Ohki has learned to speak human dialect. Ryo-Ohki has also gained a younger sister of sorts, in the form of Fuku. She is shown in a few sequences as not as much an animal as a young girl, however, especially in the more recent All-New Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki has two relatively unusual sequences in the manga.

    In this story, she's shown as capable of conversing with Washu clearly, and somehow communicating with Sasami. Her thoughts are shown in clear language. In volume 8, during the story dealing with the matchmaker and the aforementioned contest , the matchmaker's robot secretary is shown falling in love with something that resembles a Ryo-Ohki plush or puppet, eventually wishing to marry it.

    It is referred to as 'Ryo-Ohki', and Washu verifies she can fly herself, although the 'real' Ryo-Ohki is definitely active during this story. This may be one of the 'other' Ryo-Ohki-like creatures seen in one episode of the OVA and one story in the manga, where other "cabbit"s are shown.

    No explanation is given for them, or their relation to the 'main' Ryo-Ohki. Her origins are not known. She is otherwise similar to her OAV incarnation, serving as Ryoko's companion and spaceship and Sasami's pet. As a humorous plot device, Ryo-Ohki and Ken-Ohki are fond of each other while their owners are bitter enemies. Ryoko suggested that Ryo-Ohki is in love with Ken-Ohki. She still transforms into a spaceship from time to time, albeit smaller than in other series, but can also transform into a gigantic pink-colored mecha , which is either piloted by Sasami or autonomously.

    He serves as an advisor to Sasami, who becomes the magical girl Pretty Sammy. This relationship is a reference to the magical-girl genre convention of the animal advisor; it was most likely meant as a parody of the relationship between Sailor Moon and her cat Luna. He also has a young male humanoid form.

    In the Pretty Sammy television series also known as Magical Project S , Ryo-Ohki is a boy from the magical dimension of Juraihelm, who takes the shape of a "cabbit" in order to serve as Sasami's advisor. Like the OAV version, he speaks while in "cabbit" form. Not much is known about Ryo-Ohki at this point except that it is the "pet" of Washu Kozuka. However, it has been shown that Washu can be cruel to the animal if it suits her needs.

    This is why, just like its counterparts in other Tenchi series, it stays with Sasami. The cabbit can shape shift in a manner similar to its Tenchi Muyo self. It is unknown at this point if it has a human form. It is also unknown if Ryo-Ohki is male , female or perhaps neuter. Her character differs depending on the continuity, though she sometimes displays a number of innate powers which she rarely uses, preferring to solve problems with reason or technology.

    In all incarnations, Washu has also shown to be somewhat prudent and is generally trickier to fool than Tenchi or the other girls, which makes it harder for her to fall into an enemy trap.

    In all three Tenchi series Washu had also created an inter-dimensional laboratory in the closet of the Masaki house, although her laboratory is a lot bigger in the OVA series than in both of the TV series.

    The name "Hakubi" was derived from the name of a train line, the Hakubi Line. Washu's hair is derived from a costume from Noh plays, intended to resemble the usually black legs and claws of a crab. For her, it's a red crab, because this is a food specialty of Osaka.

    As such, the red crab logo appears on much of her merchandise and miscellaneous apparel. Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-oki Washu has a much larger role in the OVA than in any of the other series.

    In fact, she is the catalyst of, if not directly involved in, the majority of the conflict of the series. But in order to solve the riddle of finding an entity that was as powerful compared to them as much as they were to ordinary beings, and who presumably created them as an experiment, just as they had created all of dimensional reality.

    In addition, they created one dimensional supervisor for each of them. D3 has absolute authority over all 3-dimensional space, and so onwards up until D Eventually, Washu-kami-sama chose to seal up her powers and memories in the three gems which were later given to Ryoko and assumed a mortal form to analyze the mysteries of the universe.

    These gems have the "same quality and power" as the Juraian trees, and are capable of sustaining the youth of a Juraian such as Yosho. Washu, during her lifetime, also gave birth naturally to a child of her own; the child, whose name is Mikumo Kuramitsu, is actually Mihoshi Kuramitsu 's great-grandfather. However, because the father came from the prestigious Kuramitsu family, both he and the baby were taken away.

    Out of grief, Washu chose never to deal with these adult issues again and altered her body to that of a pre-adolescent girl, although Washu is able to return to her adult form if she wishes to. Washu was locked away by her assistant, Kagato , for 5, years until she was inadvertently freed by Mihoshi.

    After Kagato's defeat, Washu moved into the Masaki house and has made Tenchi her love and research project, the latter much to Tenchi's chagrin, while the former was expressed in her offer to only have another baby if it's Tenchi's.

    Aloof yet down to earth, she balances the household and dispels most of the chaos. She had briefly resumed her form as Washu-kami-sama when Z had threatened the universe by battling Tenchi.

    It must also be noted that in the OVA Ryoko has generally the same powers as Washu, except Washu uses them to a lesser extent. Washu has the same ability to phase shift through solid objects, convert matter directly to energy with no entropic loss in the form of an energy saber , and she can duplicate herself. One of her favorite tricks, when captured, is to reappear elsewhere, and point to the "her" that was captured, which is now merely a stuffed doll in her likeness , sometimes with a cute ribbon if she remembers to add it.

    GXP series. In the spinoff Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar , which occurs 15 years after the GXP series, Washu is revealed to have hypnotised Tenchi's half-brother Kenshi Masaki sometime prior to him being sent on a cross-dimensional journey to Geminar. Kenshi briefly refers to her as "Washu-nee" when he talks about the medicine he gives to Ulyte, which means Washu could be one of Kenshi's sisters in law.

    In Tenchi Universe , Washu was banished from the Universal Science Academy for producing weapons of mass destruction , and she was sent to Earth , imprisoned in the Masaki Shrine for years, until she was freed during a squabble involving Ryoko and Ayeka.

    Washu was portrayed as an egotistical mad scientist , with two dolls named A and B that pop up on her shoulders to proclaim her greatness and to cheer her on "Washu, you are a genius! She had at one time constructed Mecha Washu; a robotic duplicate of herself to act as an assistant to her scientific work. She had asked Tenchi to help her out in duplicating her mind into the robot, but Mihoshi had also entered the lab, and somehow left a single strand of her hair into the transfer apparatus.

    As a result, instead of Washu's mind in Mecha Washu, the robot got not only Mihoshi's mind, but also her personality. After Mecha Washu got out of control as a result, it took Kiyone's knowledge of Mihoshi's habits to wrangle the robot to watch Mihoshi's favorite show Moldiver , where it was shut down safely. Washu, near the end of the series, talked with Tenchi, who was depressed as his grandfather was easily defeated by Kagato. Washu was able to convince him that he could wield a greater force of Jurai power than his grandfather, and then helped disable a portion of the Jurai fleet in the final battle with her supercomputer virus.

    At the end of the series, Washu was the elected honorary president of the Universal Science Academy, promising to only use her powers for peace. She was kicked out a month later for developing a weapon capable of destroying the entire universe though as Tenchi narrates, no one was surprised.

    Washu eventually returned to Earth. During the chase, Washu sensed an unusual energy source emitting from Earth, and after they were forced to crash-land on Earth, Washu sensed that the power came from Tenchi's necklace an heirloom handed down from his late mother, Achika Masaki. Throughout the series, while researching his necklace, Washu invented various items that would allow the girls to see Tenchi during his time in Tokyo notably, a dimensional portal ; however, her inventions would often malfunction.

    Personality-wise, she's still a mad scientist, but she is more mellowed-out than her Tenchi Universe incarnation. When Yugi 's plot had scattered the Masaki family, Washu was the only one not fooled by it, and after analyzing Yugi from her previous attack against the Masaki shrine, Washu found out she came from Jurai.

    With some help from Ayeka, Washu discovered the ruins to which Ayeka had been previously with Tenchi were actually a prison meant to hold Yugi, as she had been imprisoned for nearly destroying Jurai 3, years ago. Washu later sent an analysis robot to analyze Sakuya Kumashiro , as she suspected that Sakuya might be some factor in Yugi's plan, which proved to be true when the scan showed that Sakuya was a shadow of Yugi.

    With her Gem Analysis complete, Washu went with Katsuhito to Tokyo, and she explained everything to Tenchi about Yugi and why she worked so hard to break them up. After that, Washu observed the final battle against Yugi, when she was transported to Yugi's dimension and at the end of the series went to work on a new Dimensional Tunnel by using the power of the gems. Graduating from M. She would help Pretty Sammy on various events, regardless if Pretty Sammy even wanted her help.

    When she's not following Pretty Sammy around, she works at Sasami's school as her science teacher. She also has moved across the street from Sasami and Tenchi's house and it was never established if she knew Pretty Sammy's secret identity. In Magical Project S , she is an American and she has a habit of addressing Sasami's father Ginji as Johnny, just as he has a habit of addressing her as Catherine. Washu's role is similar to that of the Pretty Sammy OVA, but with the addition that she is also the first human to be fully aware of Sasami's secret identity as Pretty Sammy and only moved in next door to Sasami's house to keep an eye on Sasami and analyze her magic for research purposes.

    Later, she discovers that Misao is Pixy Misa. Her most notable appearance in the TV series was that after analyzing Pretty Sammy's magic, she was able to develop her own NT system that was used during Romio's attack on the Earth.

    She is also Ryo-Ohki's mistress, using the poor cabbit in some of her cooking demonstrations. Although she is the cooking teacher, it was revealed that she ironically cannot cook.

    Washu plays a small part within the series, creating the Kamidake and its A. She finally makes an appearance along with Tenchi and the gang in the episode "Homecoming" when Seina Yamada returns to Earth with the crew of the Kamidake. Her personality, while similar to, is a bit more mellowed out than her Tenchi Universe counterpart. Her final appearance in the series is at Seina Yamada's wedding. She shares her name with Kiyone Masaki , the character introduced as Tenchi's official canonical mother in the third installment of the Tenchi Muyo!

    Ryo-Ohki OVAs. Kiyone Makibi is a first class Galaxy Police detective who graduated with the second highest marks her year, and because of her athletic and analytical skill, commitment to police work, and responsible nature was deemed the cream of the GP crop and among the best of the younger generation of Galaxy Police.

    Stuck with the bumbling Mihoshi Kuramitsu as a partner, Kiyone's career suffered; she has become somewhat bitter and depressed with her misfortune, hoping that she can earn a promotion and transfer away from Mihoshi, which would ensure much better prospects for the future.

    But despite the trouble Mihoshi has brought her, Kiyone holds some hidden fondness for her partner, to such a degree that, when she is finally promoted, she continues to stand by her. Kiyone is an exceptional detective with great sharpshooting skills with a GP Blaster, and is capable of using any of the GP-issue equipment properly. She also maintains a fondness towards karaoke. She also has a down-to-earth nature and, in a lot of depictions, lives in an apartment with Mihoshi rather than imposing on Tenchi.

    Kiyone is not infatuated with Tenchi as the other girls are, Hasegawa novels aside, but expresses concern and care for him nonetheless. Her character proved very popular and would later be imported with a different background into the Mihoshi Special where canon Tenchi creator Masaki Kajishima did her character designs , and after gaining a fan-base Kiyone would make future appearances in many Tenchi Muyo!

    Accompanying them are Ayeka , the heiress of Jurai plutocrats, and the apprentice detective Sasami. After capturing Ryoko, Kiyone after looking through Ryoko's things found out the infamous Professor Washu was behind Ryoko's actions. But after Mihoshi released Ryoko who kidnapped Tenchi again, Kiyone became very depressed over Mihoshi's actions, feeling her career was now down the toilet.

    After heading to Washu's hideout Mihoshi, Kiyone and Ayeka were captured. But because of Mihoshi's bumbling, Kiyone accidentally fell over and disappeared.

    Although Mihoshi thought that Kiyone had sacrificed herself out of duty, unbeknownst to her Kiyone was still alive, alone and floating adrift in space plotting her partner's imminent demise.

    Because this story is considered to be an exaggeration by Mihoshi, it is not part of the regular OVA canon; however, Kiyone proved appealing enough to become part of the TV series cast.

    Ryo-Ohki Tenchi Muyo! OVA 9. She is able to verify a few points in Mihoshi's story however, meaning that while details were exaggerated the "Ultra-Energy Matter" caper does have its basis in fact. As with many characters in Tenchi Muyo!

    Kiyone was named after locations in Okayama Prefecture in Japan. The name "Kiyone" is taken from the Kiyone train station on Japan's Hakubi railway line. The name "Makibi" is taken from the town of Mabi , which was named after the famous scholar Kibi no Makibi ; the town was merged into the city of Kurashiki in August In the first Tenchi television series , Kiyone was assigned to locate her missing partner Mihoshi.

    But to her disbelief, not only was she alive but she was living with the galaxy's most wanted space pirate Ryoko, the two missing Jurai princesses Ayeka and Sasami, and the galaxy's legendary mad scientist Washu.

    Kiyone tried to arrest Ryoko with some assistance from Ayeka but failed because of Mihoshi's clumsiness. After contacting headquarters, Kiyone found out that she and Mihoshi had been transferred to patrolling the Solar System, which was very depressing for her.

    Not wanting to be a burden on Tenchi Masaki, Kiyone decides that she and Mihoshi would move into a low-rent apartment. However, difficulties arise as the officers take part-time jobs due to Mihoshi's incompetence and their GP duties, which often require immediate response even in the middle of work. After Ayeka and Sasami are accused of treason on planet Jurai, Kiyone found out that the Galaxy Police were aiding the Jurai military with the task of locating them.

    Because of Mihoshi, both of them were accused of being accomplices. With little choice, Kiyone joins the others to journey to Jurai to clear their names, using her shuttle the Yagami to travel across space; Washu created an interdimensional invention that allowed the Masaki Home to be put into the Yagami.

    At the end of the series, after being promoted to the GP's high ranks, Kiyone returns to earth for reasons unknown. At the beginning of the first film , Kiyone and Mihoshi witness Kain's escape from and destruction of the GP headquarters, and are later "volunteered" by Ryoko to go back in time with the group to to save Tenchi's then-teenaged mother Achika from the criminal.

    While the others pose as students, teachers, or stay out of the way altogether, Kiyone has the decidedly unglamorous task of going undercover as the school janitor. Later returned to the present for a brief time by Washu, Kiyone brings information and equipment back with her to help everyone deal with the threat. When a plan to convert spiritual energy from Tokyo's five-color Fudo shrines to generate enough Jurai power to recapture Kain fails, Washu sends the dimensional cannon, a weapon with enough destructive power to raze entire galaxies.

    Kiyone is charged with operating the machine, and fires just as Achika exits subspace with Kain in close pursuit, killing him and ending the villain's threat to the Masaki family. Though Kiyone is not present over the course of most of the final film , the GP detective's role is still an important one; she and Mihoshi break into the Galaxy Academy to hack into their dimension stabilizing system so that Washu will be able to create a gateway to track down the missing Tenchi.

    Later, the two officers set up energy collectors on all the camellia trees planted by Katsuhito Masaki , thus giving Ryoko and Ayeka access to Haruna's fantasy world. In Tenchi in Tokyo , Kiyone's character design and personality are quite different from in the previous series. Kiyone acts more along the lines of a manic depressive and is more driven towards being promoted and assigned to the Galaxy Police headquarters than her Tenchi Universe counterpart.

    She also expresses romantic feelings for Tenchi, feeling that he would be better off with a law abider like herself than with the others, though this may have just been to goad Ryoko to come back to Earth. Mihoshi and Kiyone were originally part of the Galaxy Police task force assigned to apprehend the space pirate Ryoko and her partner Washu in order to recover the stolen Jurai Light stone. After the incident, Kiyone was unhappy with being assigned to Earth her crush on Tenchi nonwithstanding and would stoop to anything to put her life back on track.

    However, after arresting the criminal Bent Cougar in episode 18, she seems to be pleased with the opportunity for transfer to Pluto and was willing to forget all of her experiences on Earth, even after finding out that Ryoko once again became a space pirate.

    But after being assigned to infiltrate Ryoko's gang, Kiyone decided to find out why the space pirate returned to her old ways at Mihoshi's suggestion. However, Yugi's servant Hotsuma , not wanting Ryoko to reconnect with her old friends, framed Kiyone and Mihoshi for tipping off the Galaxy Police and they fled. Kiyone became more stable and less obsessed with matters concerning her job and promotion, and in the end chooses friendship over career ambitions by returning to Earth with Mihoshi to fight Yugi.

    But their shuttle was shot down en route by Tsugaru , another of Yugi's attendants. Using an experimental antimatter bullet, Kiyone was able to kill Tsuguru after Mihoshi shielded her from an attack; she then helped Tenchi and the others in the final battle against Yugi.

    Shortly thereafter, the two GP officers are all too happy to patrol the Earth beat once again. While not seen in the actual series, the whip-wielding Evil Kiyone makes her appearance in the music video for "Pretty Sammy, the Magical Girl" , played during the end credits of the Mihoshi Special. This short, originally part of the Tenchi Muyo!

    Soundfile , marked Pretty Sammy's video debut, with Kiyone serving as the magical girl's first-ever animated foe. With her henchmen in tow one being Amagasaki , Kiyone interrupts a lover's kiss between Sasami and Tenchi, stealing the boy away with her magical powers and cackling madly as they escape in her bicycle-powered spaceship. By transforming into Pretty Sammy, Sasami is able to stop them cold with the Pretty Coquettish Bomber , saving Tenchi from the ample witch's clutches.

    In spite of gaining a small measure of popularity in Tenchi fandom, this Kiyone never makes a second appearance in later incarnations of the series. Kiyone is somewhat depressed, as Mihoshi had made it into college while she had failed her entrance exams. Kiyone has known fellow teacher Mihoshi Mizutani since junior high and deeply resents her. The noise from Mihoshi's class has a tendency to bother Kiyone incessantly, and she would jump at the chance to prove that she is a better teacher than Mihoshi.

    Having a rational mind, she finds it impossible to accept things so outside the norm as the events that often transpire at the school, and usually faints dead away when insanity erupts. Kiyone makes scant appearances in Hitoshi Okuda's manga, as the comics are based on the continuity of the first OVA, in which Kiyone does not take part.

    In the rare times she does make an appearance, it is usually for a role that takes place outside of "official" canon i. Tenchi Muyo in Love or Pretty Sammy adaptations , sometimes breaking the fourth wall by begging for a larger part. The following major characters were introduced in the Tenchi Muyo! OVA series. He was a colleague of Washu , before her capture by Kagato , and was highly jealous of her superior intelligence.

    The two, at one point, competed for the Jurai Science Academy's directors chair, but Washu won out. As a result, Clay had to settle for the post of head of the graduate school. At some point, he came into the employ of a mysterious and powerful extra-dimensional being known as Lady Tokimi , which allowed him to bring Washu to her, in exchange for the rule of a single galaxy.

    To this end, Clay had his creation Zero replace Ryoko , copying her form, powers, and memories. Having everything of his favorite objects being marked with his own logo is subsequently his own downfall; having Washu finding his logo on Zero 's synthetic buttocks and revealing the location of his spaceship's womanly bridge. In the end, Clay was arrested by Mihoshi , and the dying Zero was merged with Ryoko. Sometime after his arrest, Tokimi's servant D3 modified the memories of both Clay and Zero while being merged with Ryoko?

    A second, alternate incarnation of the character was the antagonist of the initial TM! Kagato caught word of a historical artifact, one said to hold the "greatest energy in the universe". While not a psychopath who kills for the sake of killing, Kagato is not concerned with mortals or their feelings, thinking them "worth nothing more than dust" ; they have their occasional use as tools, but are overall beneath his notice and not worth killing. However, he will not hesitate to kill should they offend him or if it coincides with a greater purpose; those caught in the collateral damage of his "scientific methods" are similarly out of luck.

    Once observed a location would be razed, whether it be populated or not, lest someone else replicate his research. In all, 3, ruins were destroyed, with great loss of life and innumerable cultural artifacts stolen. Seeing it as the key to unlocking the great power he'd sought, Kagato warns the boy not to swing around others' property so lightly, telling Tenchi to give up the sword and not his life. Angry, Kagato engages the boy in swordplay to test him, and is sorely disappointed by the result.

    Thinking his rival has given up, Kagato tries to retrieve it for himself, and is quite literally shocked when he grasps the sword handle: he is not ordained to be its owner. During the onslaught, Tenchi attempts to use the ship's Light-Hawk-Wings as a weapon rather than their intended purpose as defense, and it proves costly as they are overwhelmed; the bottom half of the ship is destroyed, with Tenchi caught along with it.

    Ryoko is able to free herself and mounts a last-ditch effort for revenge with the others, not caring if she kills herself so long as Kagato dies with her. She and Ayeka personally engage Kagato, as Mihoshi gets lost along the way and accidentally frees Washu from the reverse side of the ship though they're unable to get back. Washu is able to free her daughter from her side of the ship in the meantime, but Ryoko is unable to fight to her full potential due in part to Ayeka's presence.

    What everyone did not know at the time was that Tenchi had survived the first attack, although the lower half of his body was destroyed by the blast. The remaining upper half was preserved by a branch of Ryu-Oh and the guardians Azaka and Kamidake until Tsunami arrived. Once aboard her ship, Tsunami was able to fully regenerate Tenchi's body and revived him.

    She then informed him about the battle with Kagato, for which Tenchi wanted to help. Tsunami agreed, but she also told him she could not accompany him Talking face to face again to his mentor after so many millennia, Kagato decides to show Washu a few new tricks. Tenchi is able to save Ryoko by severing Kagato's arm, though after the initial surprise the young man is beset, with Kagato taking the time to toy with him before invoking the power of the gathered gems into himself.
