Startica: the mid-summer's festival on Jurai, celebrating the hope that two people, bound by the bonds of a symbolic fruit may meet sometime in the future. A young Yosho finds himself presenting such a fruit to a young creature, a creature who tries to give him a gift, only to have the royal guards dispatch the mysterious figure...
A hot mid-summer's day. Everyone is working, doing chores -- everyone, except Ryoko, of course. Tenchi attends to the Masaki grave, when he's disturbed by the appearance of a young girl... a girl who claims to be Tenchi's daughter. If that wasn't enough, Washu's analysis of her DNA confirms that half of the mysterious person's genetic make-up is in fact from Tenchi...
But the Masaki household discovers that there's something very unusual about Mayuka, the new house guest. Why is Ryoko so suspicous of her? Why is Mayuka so intent on getting Tenchi alone with her? And why does the DNA pattern of Mayuka's maternal side seem so unreadable, as if it were deliberately being hidden?
A decidedly more intense feel than the TV or OAV series, and on par with the first movie. Some scenes of sexual innuendo and suggestive scenes, and several Japanese curses have been translated as English four-letter words. Several scenes of violence are not suitable for younger teens, and several scenes may be too intense for some viewers.
