Tenchi Muyo!
TV Episode 5: No Need For Partners!

© 1996 AIC, Tenchi Muyo Committee, Pioneer LDC

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


Kiyone is the most capable Galaxy Police detective. She has believed that her goofy partner Mihoshi died on her mission, until the day HQ informed her that Mihoshi is waiting rescued on Planet Earth. Not exactly a good news for Kiyone! She sets out for Planet Earth, hoping that HQ has given her misinformation but knowing somehow it's true. And she's right. She finds Mihoshi waiting for her, smiling her guileless smile, waiting for her, along with some surprising unexpected company: the most wanted criminal, the missing princesses and the legendary mad scientist! Kiyone's nightmarish days are back.

Meet Kiyone, the only "victim" character we have besides Tenchi. While she has never been part of the "regular" cast in the OVA series, we know that her valiant performances in our specials and CD dramas have won her many followers who would now officially welcome her as one of the main cast members. Her interplay with Mihoshi is nothing less than hilarious, worthy of the name "Miho-Kyo Duo."
