The galaxy’s most fearsome space pirate’s back! This time, though, she’s seeking the spotlight!
Earlier today, the official Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki 4th (Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki Dai Yon-ki) website updated with a new promotional video. The 45-second teaser features Ryoko (Ai Orikasa) as narrator as she delivers the show’s premise.
