The GP headquarters vanishes! One word was left... "Kain."

Around the same time, on earth, Tenchi's house has suddenly disappeared. What's even worse is that Tenchi's body is disappearing, too...! Something must have happened to Achika, Tenchi's mother, in the past! So the gang must leave for a journey to the year 1970.
