Samurai Space Opera is the fourth volume of the No Need For Tenchi! manga series, written and drawn by Hitoshi Okuda.

From the back cover of the Viz Graphic Novel:

Like a team of avenging samurai; our friends accompany Princess Asahi into outer space to rescue her father, a master sculptor, from the clutches of evil villains who would steal his prestige and creative powers.En route, Asahi's allergy to males flares up, our friends befriend a powerful yet gentle monk, and their spaceship, flying under the influence, crash-lands on a planet where they are drawn into local political rivalries and intrigues, just like the heroes of their favorites samurai TV series!


In the English graphic novels, each chapter is numbered and preceded with the phrase "Tales of Tenchi." However, each volume restarts the numbering, replicating the number of each of the comic books as originally published by Viz.

A Pirate's Tale
