Whilst the other girls quietly enjoy a television program about a pair of comets currently passing by the Earth, Ayeka has other concerns on her mind- namely, the relationship between Tenchi and Sakuya. The Juraian princess is desperate to get to
With Ryo-Ohki feeling ill, the dimensional tunnel out of order, and no money for a bus fare anywhere to be found, Ayeka has only one option remaining if she wants to get to Tokyo- she will have to hitchhike. With Sasami as her unwilling accomplice, Ayeka heads out to the roadside to try to catch a lift, only to discover that finding a suitable ride isn’t as easy as it first seemed.
Fortunately for Ayeka’s plans, she has an unexpected ally in her bid to get
After a string of failures, Ayeka and Sasami finally manage to get a ride in the sidecar of a mysterious biker girl- who is, naturally, one of Tsugaru’s creations. To Sasami’s terror and Ayeka’s delight, the girl’s motorcycle is by far the fastest thing on the road, outpacing other legendary bikers and even an express train.
Having made great progress on their journey, Ayeka, Sasami and the biker girl stop off at a roadside café. The girl introduces herself as Masayo Manuketa, and soon she and Ayeka are swapping stories. Ayeka is quick to give her own exaggerated version of why she needs to get to
Sasami is sure that Masayo will be annoyed at Ayeka’s flights of fancy, but to her surprise, Masayo readily agrees with Ayeka’s story, claiming that the princess has understood her perfectly. However, as the two kindred spirits enjoy their shared understanding, they are interrupted by a group of bikers who claim that Isao is in the area.
Desperate to finally catch up with her beloved, Masayo heads straight out to her bike, only to be stopped by Tsugaru. Tsugaru reminds Masayo that she was created solely to take Ayeka to
Revving up her bike, Masayo heads after Isao’s trail of smoke, with Sasami, Ayeka and Ryo-Ohki hanging on in the sidecar. Soon, they manage to close in on Isao, and to the princesses’ surprise, they see that he isn’t a biker at all, but rather a super-fast cross country runner! Masayo quickly explains that Isao has devoted himself to running- and he is so focussed on his task that he won’t even notice them unless they catch up with him.
Unfortunately, despite Masayo’s best efforts, she cannot quite catch up to Isao, and soon Ayeka realises that the only way for Masayo to go first is to lighten the load. As Isao vaults over a break in the mountain road, Masayo follows, and the two princesses leap out of the sidecar. Whilst Ryo-Ohki rapidly finds the strength to transform into her mecha form and catch the two princesses, Masayo catches up with Isao, who finally notices his pursuing lover.
It was clear from the start that Masayo and Isao were no ordinary humans, and now Ayeka finally learns their true identities- they are the spirits of the two Manuketa comets. To Ayeka’s delight (and Tsugaru’s annoyance), the two lovers return to the sky, having found each other despite failing to complete their mission of delivering Ayeka to Tokyo.
In fact, Ayeka and Sasami are now on the other side of
And indeed, some time later, Ayeka and Sasami make it to Tenchi’s apartment in
