If you are new to the whole Tenchi series, you may have a bit of trouble settling down at first due to a very unfamiliar fantasy setting and a pretty twisty plotline which doesn't really start at the very beginning in this book. But then you'll fall in love with all the spunky, fun-loving characters like the courageous teenaged Tenchi and his five wacky female housemates with their offbeat hairdos like the devilish Ryoko, her "mother" the youthful-looking scientist, Washu; the pretty princess from outer space, Ayeka and her sweet little sister, Sasumi; and the resourceful space police, Mihoshi. Not to mention their charming little rabbit-cat pet, Ryo-oh-ki with the most amazing trick: he could turn into a spaceship in the time of need!
In this story, Tenchi & Co. suddenly encountered Ryoko's wild twin named Minagi who is out for blood! So Tenchi and Ryoko fiercelly battled Minagi and knocked her out, thus causing her to lose her memory. And along comes Yakage who wants to test Tenchi's legendary sword and thus he made off with the lovely Ayeka in the very end. But better read all about it to find out! Very cute and funny with such skillful drawings and truly endearing characters!
