A standalone Tenchi Muyou Ryououki picture drama released as a part of PAC on VHS and seemingly around the same time on laser disc.

The premise of Tenchi Muyou! Ryououki: Heian Muyo! has Aeka, Yosho (in his Katsuhito form), Tenchi, Mihoshi, Ryou-Ouki, and Ryouko in the Heian era (794 AD to 1185) of Japan. Tenchi and Mihoshi are samurai partners on their way to slay a demon, while Aeka longs for Tenchi's return.

Caveat: my Japanese is extremely limited (aside from anime, I spent four years in Japan, but that was a decade and a half ago), so the lack of English subtitles (in the version that I was able to find) hampered my ability to understand the events and enjoy the show fully.

It's not (at the time of this writing) easily found or widely available through online streaming sites, but is probably worth the time and effort to search it out _after_ having watched at least one season of Tenchi Muyo Ryooki, or one of the other main series (possibly excepting Mahou Shoujo Pretty Sammy or Dual ...

It's a picture drama (basically just has audio accompanied by still images, though there is some very limited animation such as camera pans and zooms and a "page turning" animation between different images) where it seems Aeka imagines various Tenchi Muyou! characters in a story set in the Heian era of Japan. Irrelevant as far as I can tell to the main plot of the Tenchi Muyou! Ryououki OVAs, but completionists can feel free to watch it. It references a few stories and elements of Japanese folklore.

In the end it finishes inconclusively as Aeka says she can't take any more of this world.
