In the second novel, witness the mysterious past of Tenchi’s grandfather Yosho, and how he came to find himself on Earth in the aftermath of Ryoko’s attack on Jurai. And in the third and final novel, learn the origin of the super genius Washu and the previously untold life she led as a goddess over 20,000 years before the events of the Tenchi Muyo: Ryo-Ohki series!
