Tenchi Muyo!
TV Episode 4: No Need For Monsters!

© 1996 AIC, Tenchi Muyo Committee, Pioneer LDC

Color / Stereo Surround / 22 minutes / Japanese Language / English Subtitles


It is Washu we find in that cave, not Ryoko like in the OVA series. From this point on, our TV series starts to take a clearly different road from the OVA series. For instance, Mihoshi and Washu do not seem to have any special "love" feelings for Tenchi. By the way, don't you love the little Washu Puppets cheering on Washu's shoulder? They could make a perfect merchandising item!
