Tenchi seeks answers from his past while Ryoko faces the present head on. But the gang's world gets turned upside-down when they receive a strange visitor. After composing himself, Tenchi discovers that the mysterious visitor is not his mom, but a long, lost sister who has come to inform him of his arranged marriage and, more importantly, his new fianc=E9e, Noike. While Ryoko, Ayeka, and the others are disputing this, Tenchi leaves to work in the fields, where he unknowingly meets his bride to be. When Tenchi collapses from exhaustion, Washu gives him a prescription for three days of complete rest and relaxation! Now, with Tenchi confined to his bed, Noike must find a way to rally the girls into helping out around the house! After proving herself to him and his friends, will Noike finally be the girl Tenchi chooses?

Unlike the recent Tenchi Muyo GXP, which only alluded to the original characters, the OVA Ryo-Ohki brings back the gang from the popular comedy-adventure. The always transitory calm of the Masaki household is shattered when new visitors arrive from the planet Jurai. They include Tenchi's older sister Tennyo; Airi, the wife of Tenchi's grandfather; and Noiki, Tenchi's fiancée, chosen for him by Ayeka's and Sasami's grandmother Lady Seto (a.k.a. the Devil Princess of Jurai). But these plot twists are largely artifice: more is going on than meets the eye--as is often the case in Tenchi stories.

The OVA reunites not only Tenchi, Ayeka, Sasami, Washu, Ryoko, Nobuyuki, and Katsuhiko, but key members of the English vocal cast: Matt K. Miller (Tenchi), Jennifer Darling (Ayeka), and Sherry Lynn (Sasami). Celeste Burch replaces Petrea Burchard as Ryoko, and Mihoshi's long-suffering partner Kiyone seems to be missing in action. Although there are a few inconsistencies and a lot of clips from the original Tenchi Muyo! (1992), the new shows are quite entertaining. Like Hello Dolly, Tenchi can apparently be revived endlessly. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 12 and older: brief nudity, cartoon violence, minor risqué humor, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon
