A few days after Kagato is defeated everything returns to normal. Until Ryoko and Ayeka find Mihoshi and Sasami reading shojo manga which Sasami tells them they are guides to tell how to win a boy Earth style.

After an inopportune wake up from Ryoko, Tenchi is able to get privacy from Ryoko in the bathroom and accidentally activates his battle gear where he notices a seed he got from Tsunami which could revive Ryu-oh to Ayeka's delight. She enters Washu's lab and after some goofing around on Washu's end, Ayeka is able to get a unit from Washu that could convert to Jurai's environment meaning Ryu-oh could be planted.

Ryoko notices shoujp manga being read by Mihoshi and Sasami and decides to use the manga to get love advice to try to woo Tenchi. Meanwhile, Tenchi enters Washu's lab to find Ayeka for breakfast, but winds up a victim of Washu's crazy experiments to determine how he could trigger the Lighthawk Wings. She goes so far to attempt a sperm sample which is thwarted by Mihoshi's surprise arrival. Ayeka is planting the seed and yells at Ryo-ohki who mistakes the seed for a carrot.

A little later, Ryoko embarrasses herself attempting to use the plot devices from the shoujo manga to woo Tenchi which later comes to use by Ayeka. When the manga doesn't help, both girls attempt their own plans to woo Tenchi but to no avail. Then in the onsen, Ryoko and Ayeka make a pact to rid the Masaki household of Washu and Mihoshi. They get Mihoshi to leave Earth as she files her report to the Galaxy Police. She is offered a promotion for her efforts against Kagato, but Mihoshi chooses to stay on Earth. At night, Ryoko ties up Ayeka and attempts to sneak into Tenchi's bedroom. But a transporter device set up by Ayeka transports Ryoko to the pond.

When she warps back to the hallway, Ryoko argues with Ayeka about their romance plans for Tenchi then they start a fight. Meanwhile, Sasami is having another nightmare where she injures herself and is forced to witness Tokimi taking away Tenchi while drowning in a pool of her own blood. Weeping with Ayeka not in the room, Sasami walks into Tenchi's bedroom past the fighting Ryoko and Ayeka. Desperate after this event, the two try to force entry into Tenchi's room. However, the transporter device sends them to the pond. Afterward, Mihoshi crashes her ship into the Masaki house. The next day, Ayeka wakes up in Washu's lab to find that Ryu-oh has begun to grow.
