Ai Tenchi Muyo! – 44 Review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Tenchi stabilizes Momo from the dimensional distortion as Sasami and Aeka confront Kurihara as official reps from Jurai. She wants them arrested, but a dish on the old school, which turns out to be a black hole weapon, gets more attention. The weapon fires, but fails to disable the inbound GP warhead. Gouriki-kun uses the debris around him to enlarge himself, whereby he smacks the warhead. In the explosion, Ryoko manages to get the Juraian weapon and escape the fissure.

Thoughts/Review:

For episode 41, the cliched actions of the GXP people and their overconfidence in their plan makes me roll my eyes.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 41-44

For episode 42, yay Ryoko.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 41-44

Yay Washu.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 41-44

For episode 43, I really don’t have a lot to say. For me, we have this fairly uncompelling story that’s coming to an end.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 41-44

For episode 44, again, I don’t have anything to say. I just can’t get myself to care about any of this.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 41-44

Well, I did like Sasami and Aeka showing up in their robes to confront Kurihara.

Ai Tenchi Muyo! - 41-44

Beyond that, I just don’t find anything about this story to be that compelling. Maybe I’m just getting too old for certain kinds of stories, I don’t know. We’ll see how things wrap up.

    Hey, ANB, you missed something, Eps. 55 was not a Recap, but full episode, with a strong clincher, the ultimate target of the GP. Now I will not be a spoiler and let you publish that first,. All I will say is if the GP think it will get way with stealing it, under the nose to Two members of the Juraian Royal Family, they drinking “Carrot Juice.”

      I haven’t watched episode 55, so I appreciate the head’s up. I’ll make sure to watch it since it should be next on the list.
