Showing Appreciation For Ryoko The Great From Tenchi Muyo
Have you forgotten about Ryoko The Great? No, not Ryuko
Ryoko of Tenchi Muyo. One of the main candidate of Tenchi’s love life is a 700 year old demon with long gray/blue hair and a beautiful face. Fans either loved her character to death (like me) or were annoyed by her. Don’t get it twisted, she is evil and strong. Despite all that, she’s an endearing character because while she’s evil, she wanted nothing more than Tenchi’s love.
Let me give you the low-down on Tenchi in case you forgot about this legendary anime series:
Tenchi Masaki is a hapless school boy who suddenly finds himself in the midst of a bunch of women from outer space – among them, space pirate Ryoko, princess Ayeka and her little sister Sasami, scientific genius Washu, ditzy space cop Mihoshi, and the adorable little “cabbit”(part cat, part rabbit), Ryo-ohki. This sets the scene for a hilarious romantic farce as the girls fight for Tenchi’s affection, while he fights off various galactic threats and discovers that his family is also connected to the outer space world.
Just to show you how powerful Ryoko is:
Ryoko is the product of combining a powerful creature known as Masu, with the ova of Washu Hakubi, the greatest scientific genius in the universe, making Washu her mother. Ryoko was created to be an entity capable of wielding the power of Washu’s three mysterious gems. Washu, who is one of the Chousin — three deities who created the universe — descended to the third dimension and placed her power into the three gems. Washu also created a living spacecraft, the powerful Ryo-Ohki, to be Ryoko’s companion and ship.
Everyone forgets about Ryoko when discussing the strongest females in anime. Boa Hancock, Tsunade, Yoruichi, and Unohana are the typical names thrown around when discussing this topic. All of them are very strong characters. Some one of the strongest characters of their series. But Ryoko is way powerful overall. Again, she is a world destroyer. She can blow up the Universe if she wanted to. She can destroy any character male or female you can think of. This includes Goku. Ryuko from Kill La Kill is a tough girl but she isn’t as badass as the Queen of Badass herself, Ryoko. We can drop Ryoko in an episode of Bleach and all of the Sternritters will be wiped out in under 5 minutes.
I sound like a huge Ryoko fanboy and I’m glad I do. She’s my favorite anime characters of all time. Nothing is going to change that. I just like talking about how strong she is because she could merk Madara in one second. I do wonder how Ryoko would fare if she was in the Toriko Universe though. Even so, if you have never seen Tenchi Muyo, check it out. Ryoko is an amazing female character that needs more recognition!
