Subsection 1: Articles and Interviews
There are people with a lot more Tenchi knowledge than me, primarily since they can read Japanese AND English. As such, they’ve read much of the additional Japanese materials such as the Kajishima doujinshi and the Kajishima novels. So I thought I’d get some of them to write stuff, especially since they write a lot for the MSG board.
