  • Trivia

    • If you hear when Baguma recognizes that they were being "held captive" inside Tsunami, you'll notice that Tsunami has a much vaster landscape. However, in the OVA episode "We Need Tenchi," Tsunami's landscape is much smaller compared to how it is depicted in this episode.

    • Ryo-Ohki in two places at once?
      Ryo-Ohki manages to be in two places at once; as a spacecraft form with Ryoko. She is also with Ayeka and Sasami in cabbit form.

      Later on she dances as kid-size Ryo-Ohki on the Juraian ship while her spacecraft counterpart spins along with the same motions.

    • This is the first episode in which Sasami fights, not counting when she was Pretty Sammy.

  • Quotes

    • Mashisu: (pointing pistol at Sasami) Sorry for the drastic measures. I'd hope it wouldn't have to come to this but I can't allow Misao's plan to fail.
      Sasami: Huh? Oh, wait a sec, I get it. You're in love with this Misao fellow. Come on, tell the truth!
      Mashishu: (shocked) Huh? Quiet!
      Sasami: I can tell, 'cause I'm in love with Tenchi!

    • Baguma: Yeah, but at least you have a good excuse. It may be small, but that kitty is a unit of a warship and the princess (Ayeka) is a pretty capable fighter in her own right. (crying) But what about me, huh? 'Cause I just got my butt kicked!
