7. Scene of Ryouko yelling at Washuu from the capsule cut.
8. Washuu and Dr. Clay's lolicon exchange cut.

This was another episode allowed that CN allowed to run long. However a lot of the exchange between Dr. Clay and Washuu was cut to speed up the action. As a result we lost some insight as to what Washuu was like back when she was among the academecians of the galaxy. Much of the purpose of the second OVA series was to give us a peek at the past of the Tenchi gang. It's too bad Washuu got shortchanged in this.
