Ai Tenchi Muyo! – 04 (Time for more sexual jokes.)

愛・天地無用! Ep. 04
Ai Tenchi Muyo! – 04 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Tenchi flees from his Student Council captors and races through the school in his boxers, holding his clothing, looking for a place to get dressed. Finding an old, abandoned part of the school, Tenchi changes, but in one of the classrooms, he hears the sound of pickaxes and then falls through a trap door.

Proceeding down a tunnel, Tenchi discovers a massive excavation site, lead by Yuki, who’s assisted by the timid Rui. As Tenchi observes, he thinks he hears Mihoshi’s voice. However, his movements causes some small rocks and dirt to slide down and he’s captured by Beni, who dresses like a female oni.

Yuki decides to see if he’s a spy, so Tenchi is strapped to a table, stripped by Beni, a ball gag is put into his mouth, and then Yuki decides to go for Tenchi’s goods as Rui squeals in embarrassment and Tenchi yells to try to stop it.

So, a tiny bit of plot, and some boring sexual jokes in this short.

Plot-wise, for whatever reason, Yuki’s faction is opposed to the Student Council, and they are looking for something to use against the Council, no doubt alien tech or the like. I figure it will be a crystal of some sort.

As to the jokes, we already had the jokes about going for Tenchi’s noodle and giving it a tug (or whatever). Basically, Yuki’s actions were more of the same, which just made my eyes roll.

I did like that Mihoshi got a cameo, even if we didn’t get to see her face.

As to Beni, I wonder if she’s supposed to be a real oni. There needs to be a Lum joke (Urusei Yatsura) in this series regarding Beni.

Oh well. Next episode isn’t actually episode 5, but is a recap episode. After four shorts, I guess audiences need to be reminded of what’s happened so far. As such, when I review episode 5, it will be the actual episode, based on the numbering here.

    I’m getting really tired of the 5-minute-episode concept!
    Also I’m not sure you’re doing yourself any favors by reviewing this one episode at a time. Given both the inherent frustration potential of this one-lame-joke-per-most-episodes structure and the frequency at which their throwing out these episodes you’d probably be better off doing a single weekly post for all the episodes that have aired up to that point.
    Just saying that perhaps that’ll help you conserve your energy somewhat (and maybe save you some of the frustration that comes with taking this series just one episode at a time. It certainly helps me to wait until I have several to go through at once!) – after all, we all value your blog and know how busy you are so I’m sure none of us would be opposed to you making stuff easier on yourself!
    But I’m certainly not trying to tell you your business, or anything!;)

      Probably not, but I’m not always the sharpest cookie. 😛

      I’m not sure what the best way to blog this will be though. I was hoping for the Azumanga Daioh method, whereby they blocked five shorts together to come up with a single episode. Here, blocking five episodes together doesn’t make a lot of sense.

        Astro: “Probably not, but I’m not always the sharpest cookie.”

        That’s probably because you’re not a cookie. Try next life. 😀

        • AstroNerdBoy says:

          I might be a cookie, masquerading as a human. 😉

            I KNEW IT!!! You’re Mass! Can you fly like Ryoko or transform into a spaceship like Ryo-Ohki? Even just shooting beams is fine… I guess.

            Heh!heh!heh! The secret is out. 😉

    It appears that the Science club wants some budged upgrade (for some reason/project?). They were talking about it in the very first episode (the Anime-Koi translation) and some episodes later (the last not-recap episode from previous week the very least).

    That’s why they were trying to capture Momo during the first episode.

    I suggest you check that translation as well. I think that combining both translations (Tenchiforum’s and Anime-Koi’s) is the best way to go. The episodes are just 3 mins long, so I believe you can squeeze it. You’ll have a better clarity of what happens.
