If you didn't win this time, don't worry; we'll have another contest soon!
We'd also like to make a special mention of Mark Tilford, who submitted a TENCHI MUYO! RYO-OHKI anagram. In his own words:
This isn't from one of the allowed titles, so its disqualified, but I couldn't keep this to myself:
In the third ova series of TENCHI MUYO! RYO-OHKI, the princess Ayeka notices a spot on Tenchi and realizes she has lost the competition with Ryoko. Sobbing, she says "O! O, I MOURN THY HICKEY."
It wasn't part of our contest, but we thought it was worth mentioning regardless. Heh! Thanks Mark!
