I don't wanna be the guy who signs up to immediately ask for something but this has been bugging me lately.

I've been looking for in-game images, original cels, cutscenes, or a complete playthrough for a Sega Saturn Tenchi Muyo game called Mimiri Onsen (天地無用!魅御理温泉 ~湯けむりの旅). I've done a lot of Googling lately partly in response to some more successful searches a few months ago when I managed to find some video footage that has since vanished from Nicovideo. All I can find now are a few very small low-res and random screenshots.

At some point I also thought I saw that all of the cutscenes had been ripped and uploaded onto a Useless Tenchi Youtube channel, all of which have also seemingly vanished.

This is admittedly mainly driven by wanting to check out some hard to find fanservice, but also just to compile some seemingly rare Tenchi Muyo content from the 90s to go in my reference folder (which might lead to me manually redrawing some in a higher resolution if I so desire).

If anyone happened to rescue, already possess, or has the means to get this material back into the world, it would be very appreciated.

As an aside, in searching also I found a Tenchi Muyo game for the PC-Engine with 16-bit graphics, and in checking it out there seemed to be a bunch of cels in the hands of collectors that the games images were based on. This lead to me learning of a PC-FX port where all of the graphics were replaced with the actual cel art. So if anyone knows if there's a port of Mimiri Onsen with way better art then that would also be cool.

There's a  guy  on one of the Tenchi Facebook groups who said he had videos of his game playthroughs taken off YT and for months he's been teasing their return. But he's being a little weird about it. Pretty sure English is not his first language.

I lumped together the harder to find imagery I saved that a quick Google search doesn't throw up, just in case anyone has it but isn't aware what name applies to which game.

NSFW but nipple-less https://imgur.com/a/rPJsRmU

I have no idea about Saturn emulation or if the ROM is even available if that's another route.

edit: It was the Tenchi Forum Youtube channel (dead) that had them, apparently: https://twitter.com/TenchiForum/status/207397967110488065

Don't worry, this is more an intense curiosity for something that shouldn't be as rare as it is (mainly because the work had been done then disappeared), the content probably isn't really worth anyone going out of their way for. I'm sure someone has/knows something.

Punistation used to host video rips from the game, but I do not think that I still have them.

Reading up on Wayback it looks like they edited and censored some clips anyway. Also what people rescued of their screencaps and thumbnails seem to represent the bulk of what I've found already. Good to have that source though. Shame they're 2002-era 10kb jpgs.

Are you also Jesse on Facebook?
Someone posted there about looking for and eventually getting help with a site with these:

Web Archive of "Jen's Homepage"
has some game screen shots.

I'm not Jesse, but I know there's more than one person looking around. I think I've already Wayback'd the Punistation site already. It seems to be the source of a lot of older quality stuff.

I knew I had the iso hiding out somewhere on one of my external hard drives.

Oh boy.

I have no knowledge of Saturn emulation or Saturn iso asset ripping. Open to suggestions.

As a followup, someone has extracted the video files from the iso, which might be worth grabbing if only for the sake of curiosity and preservation.

    • Some TM material here!
I've been looking for in-game images, original cels, cutscenes, or a complete playthrough for a Sega Saturn Tenchi Muyo game called Mimiri Onsen (天地無用!魅御理温泉 ~湯けむりの旅). I've done a lot of Googling lately partly in response to some more successful searches a few months ago when I managed to find some video footage that has since vanished from Nicovideo. All I can find now are a few very small low-res and random screenshots.

Well, for the images you could use this https://github.com/doyousketch2/SatRGB
I could try to extract them, but I have to remember how to code in python...

update: I found a nice emulator for Sega Saturn called Yabause. It looks like you can do a lot with that, including extraction(sort of) of sprites, backgrounds and what not. So instead of wasting a lot of time with the python script I posted before, I'm fidling with this emulator to see if I can find a way to get some material from the iso provided by Tensami. As For now, I managed to emulate the game perfectly, except for the audio which is odd for some reason. It is a shame that my Japanese sucks, but I can say that I really liked this game regardless. If someone want to try it out, you can get it here https://yabause.org/
