"I had expected a letdown after Seina and crew visited Earth and Tenchi's clan, but it didn't happen. This disk (which contains episodes 18-20) is just as good as volume 5 was if not better. (For the best in detailed guides to the episodes, see the superb "Tenchi Muyo! Another Universe" web site.)
The barrage of slapstick, T&A, and foolishness continues unabated: the pirates create a fleet of ships loaded with good luck charms to counter Seina's luck; Seiryo becomes a pirate to enhance the family business and to stalk Seina for revenge; Seiryo embarks on a ludicrous quest for good luck charms that could have come straight from the Excel saga; Amane is forced back into modeling and into conflict with an old runway opponent, but the experience nevertheless helps to confirm her place in the GXP, settles old scores, and brings her parents to respect her decision to join the GXP; Seiryo assembles a crew of the luckiest pirates and builds a ship with the luckiest objects in space, yet cluelessly manages to turn his ship into an object of ridicule; NB gets his comeuppance; Seina is stalked by Seto's handmaidens; and finally, the Jurai royal family gets a new member, and it's not Seina.
As has been typical for this series, the English dub has been SERIOUSLY altered from the original Japanese script. I suggest that you watch the second subtitle track (labeled Japanese, and a much more literal translation) while listening in English. You can agree that the English sometimes makes better dramatic sense, but you're left wondering why ost of the changes were made.
These episodes are sometimes hilarious, sometimes lewd and racy, sometimes uplifting, sometimes brainless silliness, and always entertaining. This is a good sign for the future episodes; let's hope that the last two volumes are this solid."
