Magical Girl Pretty Sammy is Sasami's alter ego. =) Here is a bit of info on her and the show. ECT. =)
Pretty Sammy, the Super Heroine
Magical Girl Pretty Sammy, as I have said quite a few times, is Sasami's alter ego. =) She appears for the
first time in the Mihoshi Special of Tenchi Muyo. She then appeared in a few more Tenchi episodes [specials] like this one
Tenchi Universe episode where she uses her arrow to make Ayeka and Ryoko friends. =) Later, it developed into her own TV show!
[Kind of like Sailor V, who has her own manga series] Pretty Sammy is basically trying to mimick the whole "magical girl"
genre. As Pretty Sammy, Sasami's personal information changes. For instance, her last name. She also doesn't come from Jurai,
and neither does Ayeka, Tenchi, Ryoko and all of the other characters. They are all there, but not the same as they used to
Name: Sasami Kawai
D.O.B: June 18
Blood Type: O
Favorite subject: Home Economics
Least fav. subject: Science
Alias: Pretty Sammy
Family: Mom [Chihiro] Brother [Tenchi!] Father [Genji*]
School: Raioh Academy
(note:Sasami's father does
not appear in Magical Girl Pretty Sammy, only in Magical Project S, which is a bit different.)
Basics About Sammy
Sasami became Pretty Sammy when Tsunami decided to find one person to give the powers to. You see, Tsunami
wanted to become the Queen of Juraihelm. Therefore, she must prove that she is worthy. She is the number one contestant. Then
comes... Ramia. She is DETERMINED to become the Queen. To win, Tsunami gives Sasami the power to become Magical Girl Pretty
Sammy so she could make the world a better place. Ramia, determined to win, made Misao Amano [Sasami's best friend] Pixy Misa,
so that she could fight Pretty Sammy and keep Tsunami from winning by sabatoging her plans. Misao Amano does not know that
she is Pixy Misa, though.
Misao is Sasami's best friend, and is really quiet, unlike Sasami. Misao's favorite hobby is playing the
piano. She is very good. Misao turns into Pixy Misa, Sasami's enemy, however she does not know anything about her alter-ego.
Tenchi is back!!! This time, he's Sasami's brother! =) Yep, and he still has Ryoko and Ayeka trailing him.
This is in the OAV, however. Tenchi is not Sasami's brother in the TV series. [aka magical project s] He is also her
brother in the manga story. =)
**In Magical Project S, Tenchi only appears in one episode, and he is not Sasami's brother. He is actually
an assistant director of a popular show called the "Blue Sky Rangers" (a show almost exactly like the Power Rangers.) Sasami accidentally
bumps into him one day, and falls in love with Tenchi.
Genji Kawai is Sasami's father. He is a bit eccentric, and obviously thinks his daughter is the best in
all the world. He also thinks this about his wife, Chihiro, also. Genji is quite the "cool" dad, who drives Sasami occasionally
to school on a motorcycle. He is really fun to watch on the screen. hehe
This is Sasami and Tenchi's mother. Although Sasami always gets horrible grades, her mother's head
is stuck too far into the clouds to care. She owns a CD/LD store [called CD vision], and loves singing Karaoke. She is a former
Yep, the ditzy space-cop is back also, and an airhead once again. =) However, she is not a galaxy police
officer anymore! She is still Kiyone's partner, but now they work at Chihiro Kawai's CD vision shop with Kiyone.
hasn't changed much either. Since neither of them are on the Galaxy Police, they're just normal women who
work at CD vision. Kiyone is still annoyed with Mihoshi. =) Also, you may have heard of Evil Kiyone... who actually plays
Washu is still a genius, but instead of her powerful taking-over-the-universe inventions, her inventions
are more down to earth. Washu is still loud, and makes everyone notice that she's a genius. ;) In Magical Girl Pretty Sammy,
Washu graduated from M.I.T. when she was eleven years old. She is the science teacher at Tenchi's high school. [the academy
that Sasami also goes to.]
Ayeka is in MGPS, and this time not a princess from Jurai. She's the President of the Student Body
at her school, and bent on keeping Tenchi away from Ryoko. And if she gains his love by doing so, well... that's even better!
[Of course she's still in love with him!] Plus, Ayeka doesn't even really know Sasami, let alone be her sister!
**I'm not quite sure of her part in Magical Project S, but I know that Ayeka doesn't appear barely at all
in this show. I know she does appear at least once, however, because there is a picture of her in my MPS sketch book.
The infamous space pirate is back, but she is different! She is just a normal school girl with no powers
in MGPS.. but still just as powerful in her words. ^_^;; She has the same attitude as in Tenchi Muyo. =)
**Same with Ayeka's, I am not sure how she plays a part in Magical Project S.
Tsunami is still the blue haired Goddess, but plays a different role. =) She is no longer a part of Sasami,
but she gave Sasami her powers as Pretty Sammy. Well, she isn't really Sasami's alter-ego anymore. Now Tsunami just watches
over Sasami as she plays the role of Pretty Sammy! She is the #1 contestant for Queen of Juraihelm, and Ramia's rival.
Speaking of Ramia, she is the #2 contestant for Queen of Juraihelm. =) As Tsunami's rival, she wants to
destroy Pretty Sammy. Thus, she creates Pixy Misa, Sammy's ultimate rival...and... (unknowingly) Sasami's best friend! [Misao
I can't help but love this little guy! He is Ramia's assistant, and recruited Pixy Misa. He can take the
form of a bird, and is always there to hypnotize Misao when it is time for her to turn into Pixy Misa. Rumiya is Ramia's younger
The cabbit is the same as he was in the show. He is Sasami's sidekick, as Sasami and Pretty Sammy, once
again! However, he has an added feature... Ryo-Ohki can actually speak like a human!!!! =) Notice anything, though? Yep..
Ryo-Ohki was a girl in Tenchi Muyo.. but in MGPS he's a boy!
Pretty Sammy powers
Attacks: Baton Flash, Pretty Face, Pretty Coquettish Bomber, White Lie Clear(***), Pretty Arrow (used in
Time and Space adventures 2). She can also use a special STRONG attack called the "Sammy Blade" where she calls upon three
robots that create a huge light sword. Sasami has way too many attacks to name them ALL. ^_^
Transformation phrase: Pretty
**Means that this character is only in Magical Project S, or it tells how they are different in
***Tells which attacks are only in the manga.
Differences between Magical Girl Pretty Sammy and Magical Project S
If you are confused, I will try to rid you of that confusion!
Magical Girl Pretty Sammy was the original Pretty Sammy spin-off of Tenchi Muyo, starring everyone's favorite...
Sasami! ^.^ However, the feedback for this spin-off was not as good as the creators had hoped, so they decided to make a different
spin-off, starring Pretty Sammy. It would be called Magical Project S, I suppose since the title sounds less "childish" than
the original OAV. There are many many differences between MGPS and MPS, so I will try to share a few with you!
*In Magical Project S, Sasami has an eccentric dad named Genji Kawai, however in Magical Girl Pretty Sammy,
she does not appear to have a father.
*In Magical Girl Pretty Sammy, Pixie Misa (Pixy Misa) is able to turn people into Love-Love monsters (much
like the effect that the Generals in Sailor Moon have.), however in Project S, Pixie Misa seems to A)create monsters that
have something to do with a thing seen earlier in the episode B)Turn objects into monsters, and C) Just bring out random monsters.
*The transformations are different in each, and Sasami does not find out that she is Pretty Sammy at her
mom's CD store in Magical Girl Pretty Sammy like she does in Project S.
