SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

A blushing Hana comes by to see Tenchi-sensei, disappointed he’s not still in drag. She asks if he’ll dress in drag again and if she can address him as “oneesama” in private.  She leaves him a copy of two doujinshi she created featuring him in drag and her, vowing to publish it. Sasami and a displeased Ryoko and Aeka have witnessed “Tenchi-onesama” getting too close to his student. Ryoko snags the doujinshi, which she and Aeka look at, getting a massive shock in the process. Aeka refuses to let Sasami look and Ryoko tells Tenchi to dress in drag and have Hana write a sequel.

Thoughts/Review:

Episode 17 — bōōōōring. Seriously, this was pretty tedious, though I did smile at Ryoko’s, Aeka’s, and Sasami’s reaction to Kurihara-sensei’s apparel.

Episode 18 is the highlight of the bunch. That’s because I never expected Hana to crush on Tenchi in drag and make a doujinshi about him and her.

Further, her request to address him as “oneesama” had me laughing out loud.

Then her doujinshi about she and Tenchi-oneesama made me laugh (the concept and covers).

Of course, Ryoko’s and Aeka’s reaction to the doujinshi made me laugh too.

Episode 19 is another boring episode to set up the sports festival.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 19

Episode 20 was pretty “meh” and predictable. Spin on!

I think I may have lost a few IQ points there. Thankfully, episode 18 was actually funny and enjoyable.
