Everything comes to an end, but what about Ryoko?
Well, after the battle, Ayeka and Sasami are free of charge. Washu is elected to be the honorary President of the Science Academy. A month later, they discoverd that she's developing a powerful weapon with the ability to destroy the universe. So she gets kicked out of the academy. After returning to the headquarter, Mihoshi is promoted to Chief Crime Prevention. Kiyone takes the position of Detective Sergeant.
Tenchi declines the thrown that Ayeka offers him and goes back to earth with Nobuyuki and Katsuhito. Life is back to normal for him, calm and peaceful. Who would have thought Mihoshi and Kiyone would quit their job and go back to Earth. So does Washu, the two princesses and even Ryoko. She said to Tenchi, at the end, "Life is like a carnival. It comes and goes, but if you wait long enough, it will come back to you."
Well, that's the end of the first TV series. As for the second TV series, I decide not to do the summery. It's mostly because I don't like it. It has bad drawing, bad story, bad everything. I just plain dislike it. So I really won't waste my time and energy to write about something I don't like.
