SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Tenchi has lunch with Aeka, Ryoko, and Sasami before the final event of the sports festival — butt sumo wrestling. It is Momo vs. Beni, but Momo’s true reason for this event was to befriend Beni. The two fall down, resulting in a draw, so Yuki demands another contest to determine a winner. Hachiko accepts the challenge.

愛・天地無用! Ep. 24 (29 w/ recap episodes)
Ai Tenchi Muyo! – 24 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Tenchi is filled with dread when he goes to the girl’s dorm, but the girls warmly greet him. Momo gives him a tour, where they encounter Hana in an open, button down shirt and black panties and bras. Tenchi is embarrassed and wants her to put clothing on. Beni comes by topless with a towel, heading for the bath, and is annoyed that Tenchi is making a big deal of this. Yuki and Rui evoke their plan to get Tenchi-sensei as an ally, but it seems to backfire in their face.

Thoughts/Review:

Episode 21 was rather cliched and thus boring. Naturally, things end in a tie ’cause drama.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 21

Episode 22 kept the boring sports festival going again. The sweet and wholesome Momo wants to befriend Beni. Blah, blah, blah. I felt like weeping when I saw the sports festival wasn’t ending when the episode ended.

On the plus side, there was Aeka, Ryoko, and Sasami-chan.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 22

For episode 23, more tedium, though an angry Ryoko made me smile.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 23

Ditto a mischievous Sasami-chan, who informed Tenchi about his having to work the girl’s dorm.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 23

Then there’s episode 24, which is basically an excuse for fanservice. I was amused when Hana initially started to address Tenchi as “oneesama”. I had thought this element was forgotten.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 24

Overall, these episodes were mostly boring with a few moments of fun.

    Next batch will have some plot progress, including ***BEEP*…*BEEP*…*BEEP*** and even Beni goes after Tenchi’s… strength. It’s nearing Act 3 alright.

    So it should balance this one and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
