    Episode 20
    Japanese Title: The Ship That Brings Good Luck
    Dub Title: Beware the Unko!

    WARNING: Spoilers will not be tolerated! Yes, I realize this series has been around since 2002, and I realize it did air on the FUNi Colours TV anime block (It aired back in 2006, so this isn't a dub premiere), but this is its first exposure on [adult swim].

    Synopsis: Seina Yamda is your average ordinary everyday teenager, if you take away one thing. Seina is the most unlucky boy known of in the entire universe. However Seina has decided to join the prestigious GP Academy. He hoped that the training at the GP would allow him to win the love of his life, assuming that the two women fighting over him didn't kill each other first. Now, as a Captain, Seina finds he can gain new found respect or ultimately lead the GP down the path of a horrendous defeat, but which way will his luck lead him to?

    If you thought Seina's luck was bad before, you were sorely mistaken. Seina's luck has gone from bad to worse. The women in his life begin disappearing, members of Seito's staff want to marry him, Seiro Tennan now wants to kill him, and the Kamidake 2 is now losing battles. In order to combat this growing trend Lady Seto turns to one person she believes can change the tide- Kiriko. What ideas does Lady Seto have for Kiriko, and will it alter the relationship between her and Seina? Will Kiriko's decision have any impact on the Kamidake 2? These questions, and more, will be answered on an all new episode of Tenchi Muyo! GXP. Just don't expect any real plot to develop. In case you haven't figured it out yet, the plot is figuring out as many ways as possible to show off Seina's bad luck.

    Your cast of characters:
    [​IMG] Seina Yamada: The main character who seems to have horrible luck. Seina has enlisted in the GP and hopes to use it to his advantage to gain the love of Kiriko, but now he has been made a captain and finds that Kiriko is one of the individuals he is to command.

    [​IMG] Kiriko Masaki: A young lady that has always been friends with Seina, despite his horrible luck. Kiriko has always favored Seina and done things like make him cake. After being demoted from immigration to the GP Academy as an instructor, Kiriko was told to turn Seina into a man during the next 6 months. Now that Seina is a captain, she has been made a member of his crew, but her mission hasn't changed.

    [​IMG] Amane Kaunaq: A mysterious lady that Seina runs into through a horrible series of events. She asked Seina to join the GP, but consequences followed. Amane was demoted from second class detective to a GP Instructor, and now she has been made a member of Seina's crew with the responsibility of rounding up pirates any way possible.

    [​IMG] Ryoko Balta: This mysterious woman is a former leader of the pirates, but when she if offered a chance to work with Seina, she must decide if it is the GP or a pirates life for me that will be the best way.

    [​IMG] Fuku: This young crew member is actually the Kamidake 2's main computer core. As a real life being and a relative of Ryo-Ohki, Fuku must learn how to battle as the crew grows. Fuku has very sensitive feelings and easily bonds with Neju, but she also has a hard time bonding with anyone who won't show her love

    [​IMG] NB: NB is a specially made AI Assistant Robot. However Amane decides to tamper with NB, completely altering his original programming. Now NB is willing to serve any of the ladies or his master, but he also has a few ulterior motives.

    [​IMG] Neju: This girl is a very kind loving soul who takes the opportunity to talk to Seina and reveal she can talk with ships when they first meet. Little does anyone realize, outside of Seto, that Neju is actually a 2000 year old priestess and is the leader of her planet. Due to a number of assassination attempts, Neju seeks out someone who will protect her for the remainder of her life.

    [​IMG] Seiryo Tennan: For months Seiryo has been a prisoner of the Pirates. That is about to change. The pirates hold a competition to determine who has the best luck so they can become the captain of the Good Luck Fleet, and everyone is invited to enter, including prisoners. Will Seiryo take this opportunity to become a freeman even though it means rebelling against the very principles he's sworn to protect in the GP?

    [​IMG] Seto Jurai: Also known as the Devil Proncess of Jurai. Seto has a true hatred for pirates and what they've done in the past to her family, but more than all she desires to protect her family and the GP. Seto considers herself a matchmaker, but when the situation calls for danger she's always willing to put herself on the line and head to the front of the battlefield.

    Last week: Strike a pose.

    "Fortune favors you tonight, Captain!"
    Or maybe it's just building you up for a colossal letdown.

    You know, no one's taken "S.S. Beat-the-Crap-Out-of-Seina-Yamada." Though that's probably for good reason.

    Kiriko's getting her very own tree.

    Why is a robot lusting after HUMAN women again?

    You don't have to tell us your name. It's already in the title of this episode.

    I'm going to need some explanation on that name before I can joke about it.
    Okay, I've Googled it. Apparently he's named the ship after the substance his brain consists of.

    Typical. Runs away whenever he's in deep "unko".

    Meanwhile, on the Angry Bird planet...

    Please don't say "unko" while holding glasses of brown liquid.

    Are you girls ALWAYS instantly jealous of every woman who comes within two feet of Seina?

    It's hard being popular with the ladies.


    That doesn't say "MEN'S hot springs..

    I bet some of those charms cancel each other out.

    Seiryo! You know better than to bring Unko to a ceremony like this!

    Always disliked how the dub basically did nothing with the unko pun.
