#### “Flashback Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki (Ryoko’s Theme)” performed by Seikou Nagaoka
The footage for the videos in this collection is mostly sourced from the first six OVAs, which make up the first series. This particular video mostly uses footage from the first two episodes. The main focus is on Ryoko and Tenchi’s battle at the school showing a lot of the destruction. From that we move on to the third episode with footage of Ryo-Ohki being “born” and the confusion and misunderstanding behind that (thanks to Ryoko deliberately stirring up trouble). Edited into the video as well is the scene where Ayeka and Tenchi end up wet and alone in storage shed after sheltering from the rain. Ladies, it’s shirtless Tenchi time. The final scenes include Washu and parts of the climactic battle in the final OVA of the series. The music used in the video is a background piece which would be familiar with anyone who has viewed the series. While the laserdisc jacket gives the music the very appropriate title of “Flashback Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki”, the actual title of the piece is “Ryoko’s Theme” and was first released on the soundtrack album “Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki Music Collection Volume 1” in August 1992.

#### “Magical Girl Pretty Sammy” performed by Chisa Yokoyama
The next video contains the only real new animation in the entire compilation. As you may have guessed from the title of the song, this video follows the adventures of Sasami as the magical girl spin off Pretty Sammy. I believe this video is the first animated appearance of Sammy. The video begins with Sammy following Tenchi around as works as a labourer. After work stuck under the awning of shop in heavy rain, Sasami offers Tenchi an umbrella. It’s patently obvious that Sasami is smitten with Tenchi. Later as Tenchi works as an ice cream salesman on a beach, Sasami throws a bottle of suntan lotion at the back of his head when he leers at Ayeka in her bikini. Mihoshi’s long suffering partner, Kiyone, also makes her first animated appearance here as Sasami’s nemesis. She abducts Tenchi and Sasami transforms into Magical Girl Pretty Sammy, destroys Kiyone’s ship and saves him. This animation isn’t exclusive to this compilation. It later appeared as the closing animation in the OVA “Tenchi Muyo! Side Story: Galaxy Police Mihoshi’s Space Adventure”, which was released two months after this compilation. However in the Mihoshi OVA, the animation is reduced to a quarter of the size of the screen in order to show the credits. The song itself was first released on the “Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki CD Special” album in July 1993.

#### “Oujo-sama to Oyubi! (Call Me Queen)” performed by Yumi Takada
The subtitle of this song, taken from the March 1993 album “Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki Music Collection Volume 2”, is “Imperial Education of a Groom”. That should give you a good idea of what the song and the video are about. Like most of the tracks in this compilation, this song is an image song with voice actress Yumi Takada playing Ayeka, singing about literally whipping Tenchi into shape. Unlike the other videos in this compilation there is no animation. Instead cels scroll across the screen. The video starts out fairly normal with shots of Ayeka intercut with images of Ryoko pulling faces. It then devolves into (tame) S&M imagery with poor old Tenchi being tortured in various ways; being tied up, being whipped, having hot wax from a candle dripped on him etc. Naturally Ayeka is shown in her PVC mistress gear throughout. But it’s not as bad as you think. It’s played for laughs with a lot of super deformed shots towards the end. A break in the middle of the song features a spoken word cameo from Tenchi begging her to stop and Sasami expressing excitement at seeing her older sister dressed as an S&M queen.

#### “Ueno No Koi No Monogatari (Love Story of Ueno)” performed by Masami Kikuchi, Ai Orikasa and Yumi Takada
The fourth video’s song is yet another image song, a ballad sung by the characters Tenchi, Ryoko and Ayeka. Strangely the song itself isn’t about the characters or the series. It just seems to be about a couple who are really down on their luck, homeless in fact. The footage for the first part of the video is various shots culled from the first and second episodes of the series. It’s edited to show mostly Ryoko, who sings the first verse of the song. However most of the shots have already been used in the first video of this compilation. As the second verse kicks in (sung by Ayeka), we see shots from the third and fourth episodes, mostly of Ayeka as you’d expect, but yet again a fair wack of it was previously seen in the first video. There’s some footage with dialogue inserted during the instrumental from the third episode when Ryo-Ohki hatches from her egg (I’m sure it’s a she). A second section of dialogue from the fourth episode from the onsen scene ends the video. Overall the video is pretty mediocre. The song was first released on the album “Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki Music Collection Volume 1” in August 1992.

#### “Towa ni Towa ni Hoshi no Yume (Forever, Forever Dreams of Stars)” performed by Orikasa Ai
This image song is all about Ryoko’s love for Tenchi. It was originally released on the “Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki CD Special” soundtrack in July 1993. Most of the footage in the front end of the video is culled from the battle sequences in the last OVA episode. We are then treated to some footage from the first two OVAs, again mostly Tenchi and Ryoko’s battle on the school roof top. The best material is saved for last with quite a number of shots culled from the fifth episode. All of these shot involve a very sweet sequence in the OVA where Ryoko fondly recalls watching Tenchi as a small child over the years as he grows into a young man as she was sealed inside the cave. The bizarreness of Ryoko intently watching a prepubescent Tenchi taking a leak outside the cave always amuses me to no end no matter how many times I watch it. Watching this compilation again, I was reminded of the tails on some of Royko’s clothes. I could never really understand their function or purpose. Well, other than to confuse the audience into thinking she actually had a tail.

#### “Taiho wa Kazemakase (Leave the Arrest to the Wind)” performed by Yuko Mizutani
Pretty much everyone except Washu and Ryo-Ohki have had a video dedicated to them in this compilation. The only one left to go is everyone’s favourite ditzy galaxy police officer Mihoshi. The video for this upbeat image song contains, as you’d expect, scenes from the last half of the series. The best sequence I think is Mihoshi failing in an attempt to arrest Ryoko and Ryo-Ohki proceeding to take a bite out her gun. The rest of the video just shows off her incompetent and clumsy nature, as a police officer and off duty. There’s quite a number of grabs of dialogue from the show (inserted during instrumental breaks in the song) highlighting the humour caused by her actions. The video ends with entrance into the Masaki household in episode four; crashing into it with her spacecraft. Though not mentioned in the video or on the LD jacket, the subtitle for the song used in the video is “Police Magic”. The track can be found on the “Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki Music Collection Volume 2” soundtrack, which was released in March 1993.

#### “Renai no Sainou (Talent for Love)” performed by Chisa Yokoyama
The final video in this compilation isn’t actually a music video. It’s just the clean ending animation from the series. In the animation a stylised cartoonish version of Ryo-Ohki grows a giant carrot over the course of a year while braving the worst and best the four seasons dish out. The song was originally released on the “Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki Music Collection Volume 1” soundtrack in August 1992. Surprisingly there are no credits at the end of the compilation. Instead we are treated to “Mystery Preview” which ends up being adverts for the first OVA in the second series, “Hello Baby!” and “Tenchi Muyo! Side Story: Galaxy Police Mihoshi’s Space Adventure”. Both adverts do not contain any animation from the OVAs, instead the visuals are shots of the pre-production image boards with narration by Chisa Yokoyama as Sasami.
