In the OVA Washu was the creator of Ryoko and because she used her own egg she considers her more than just a creation she considers Ryoko her daughter although she didn't raise her. She also created Ryo Ohki and Ryoko considers her more as a sister than a spaceship In TV/Universe there isn't that relationship at all as Ryoko is just a space pirate with a ship named Ryo Ohki. Washu was just a crazy scientist who was locked up in that cave.

Kagato was in both stories but had a very different treatment. OVA Kagato was a self centered student of Washu who stole Washu and locked her up (5 thousand years ago) while taking credit for all of her creations (including Ryoko, Ryo Ohki and the ship Souja). He was killed by Tenchi when Tenchi spawned lighthawk wings inside the Souja.

Kagato in the Universe was very different. He was one of the warriors that fought with Tenchi's grandfather Katsuhiko (Though he was really Yosho - who in this one was not engaged to be married or even related to Ayeka) and both dissapeared after their duel. Kagato after his loss went into hiding trying to get stronger in order to take over the throne in Jurai and subjugate the universe with his twisted sense of power. Kagato only make an appearance at the END to the Anime but the road to it is tied to him since Ayeka was usurped by Kagato on the throne and all of the Jurai royal family were being purged. They went flying through space dodging the Jurai military trying to figure out who this person is who took over the throne. The logs that she carries also came to life in THIS series at the end as physical heros come out of them while in the OVA they were just her guardians with no spirits in them.

There was a Manga that followed up on the OVAs as well which introduced characters like Minagi who is kind of a little sister/clone of Ryoko and Dark Washu/Tama who was one of Washu's experiments that got out of hand and was later rebuilt as a maid/lab assistant

Ofthe different versions I think I like the OVA universe best. Everything kind of ties together a lot nicer in that version

Yeah it takes some getting used to if you have the first voice burned in your psyche like I did It's not bad.. just very different. I'm actually happy she didn't try to mimic the original voice but went in another direction.

Btw if you haven't seen GXP some of the characters from that series are firmly in this one.

I'm happy you are enjoying it And yes the new seasons on CR will do that! I'm just happy that there are legal options so readily available these days. When Tenchi came out here I saw the episodes in laserdisk when my friends brought their copy over. I had to wait to see if Kagato was killed after he killed Tenchi.. the wait was more than 8 months..

That must have been brutal no doubt to wait that long to find out lol
us fans must have extreme endurance to be able to wait periods of time for new episodes....you can almost say its a super power
I want to just download the OVA torrent just to see the fight between Kagato and Tenchi but with what the others said earlier in the post I think I might just wait and financially support the re-release.
What series was it when Ayekas guardians became real people? TV or first part of the OVA (ep 1-13)

Heh.. we didn't have a choice back then.. and I was and still am vehement about not downloading/streaming illegal subs unless there is no official way of seeing it (like it was for Ano Hana in the beginning). We didn't have the money back then to buy all the series we could given the prices they wanted so we had to pool who got what and do mass screenings that way to see as much as we could. Then we would pick and choose what we could afford and I managed to get the OVA for about half off (still cost me $50 at the time since the box for the OVA was $110 when it first came out).

As for the guardians they came alive in the TV (the space one) at the end to help defeat the "Legendary Warrior Yosho" who was actually Kagato on Jurai.

I bought Tenchi Muyo when it was on VHS back around 1997 or so. Then I bought it again on DVD back around 1999. It was the first anime I bought on DVD. Then it was shown on Toonami and I was upset, until I saw they edited all the girls to wear swimsuits and talk about "Tea" instead of Sake.

I'm glad I still have my DVDs

Kyone exists only within the Universe timeline (the one where Washu is in the cave and the majority of the anime is in space). Kyone is sent to Earth to find out wtf happened to Mihoshi who was supposed to arrest Space Pirate Ryoko

GXP is actually one of my favorite anime, lots of fun and adventure and a great cast.

plus it is one of the few Harem series that actually ends with the main character getting married. (I won't tell you who though, find that out for yourself)
