Synopsis of Tenchi Muyo! Ryo ohki

Seventeen-year-old Tenchi Masaki grew up hearing the stories of how his ancestors sealed a demon in a cave with a sword seven hundred years ago. When curiosity seizes him, Tenchi goes into the cave and comes across the sword of legend. Thinking the story is nothing more than a fairy tale, he removes the sword and accidentally releases the demon who turns out to be a space pirate named Ryouko Hakubi. Angry about being trapped for so long, she attacks Tenchi, but is repelled by the sword and awakens her inner strength. After that, Ryouko becomes interested in his unlikely rescue and decides to live with him.
