Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The OAV War on Geminar (2009) is another spinoff in the long-running Tenchi Muyo! franchise. Kenshi Masaki, the half-brother of the original Tenchi, has been transported to the world of Geminar and forced to take part in an assassination attempt against Princess Lashra of the Shtrayu Empire. When the attempt fails, Kenshi is adopted into an alien culture where elite warriors--most of them girls--train to pilot the Sacred Mechanoids in the fortress-school of the Holy Land. Soon all the girls are chasing him. The evil Dagmyer spins an elaborate plot to overthrow the Shtrayu Empire, but his agents are so easily dispatched, it doesn't feel like much of a threat. The original Tenchi Muyo! (1992) established the anime genre of the harem comedy and introduced a cast of popular characters, none of whom appear in War on Geminar. The first episode overflows with new characters, terms, mecha, and places, then nothing happens for the next several hours. The viewer has no idea how Kenshi got to Geminar or why he commands such extraordinary physical powers. It's also not clear why the girls pursue him, as he's a nonentity, with none of his half-brother's charm. Director Koji Yoshikawa fails to establish the balance between adventure and good-natured silliness that made the earlier versions of Tenchi so much fun. War on Geminar feels like a standard-issue jiggle show with occasional mecha battles thrown in to break the monotony. Fans of the long-running continuity will find themselves wishing Tenchi and the gang would arrive aboard the Ryo-Ohki and put things to right. (Rated TV MA: violence, violence against women, nudity, risqué humor, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

On the rare occasion Kenshi doesn t have his hands full with a curvaceous coed, he can be found training for the intergalactic mecha battle royale looming on the horizon. Helping the princess save her planet is Kenshi s ticket home, but losing means he ll be stuck scrubbing backs in the interstellar sauna for the rest of his life! Every boy should be so lucky.Contains the first 7 episodes (approximately 45 minutes each).

OK first, the name of this series (which was changed for the American release into something very weird) is a little misleading. This is not a Tenchi Muyo series in the sense that Tenchi, Ryoko, Ayeka, Sasami, Mihoshi, Kiyone, or Ryo-Ohki appear in it at ALL. Washu makes an appearance as an outline. Various characters are referenced very, very little and none, but Washu, are mentioned by name. So please don't expect this to be a Tenchi series. It's not.

It is, however, AMAZING. This series takes place in the Tenchi Multiverse. The series picks up with Masaki Kenshi (Tenchi's half bro who was in utero during Tenchi Muyo! GXP). Kenshi has wound up in a very strange and different world filled with mecha (mostly piloted by women.. similar to Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, another Tenchi multiverse series). Kenshi is one of the few guys who can pilot the mecha. There are a bunch of other special things Kenshi can do that no one else can and it leads to hilarious hijinks. It feels, to me, kind of like a mash-up of Tenchi, Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures and El-Hazard, taking the best elements of each and making it better.

Kenshi ends up becoming the attendant to Princess-King Lakasha, a rather greedy and conniving young woman who is a really good person despite all this. This leads him on a serious of adventures and misdirections. He ends up meeting tons of ladies (most whom want him, of course) and wrapped up in political intrigue of this new world.

The thing that really drives this series is Kenshi. He's a really great, fun character. He has depth while appearing to be very simple, a fact that is constantly revealed, but works. There is also his foils (several of whom resemble, personality wise, our Tenchi heroines).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Anime March 11, 2013
By TS
Format:Blu-ray
I've always been a big fan of the Tenchi Muyo cosmos (can't really say world or universe cause that still wouldn't encompass all the different story lines).

I can say without a doubt this very high on my list to purchase. I've watched the fansubs multiple times. The storyline is engaging, the characters are deep and well modeled. The episodes are a satisfying 40 minutes long.

I my only problem is that 130$ (10$ per episode) for both boxes seems to be rather steep. At 70$ I would snatch the series up, but for now, I'll wait and bide my time till the prices drop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Same Old Tenchi Formula With New Characters May 22, 2013
By KevinB
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Kenshi Masaki is the half brother of Tenchi Masaki. Somehow he was summoned to another planet called Geminar. He doen't know why or how he got there though. Fortunately, this planet is mostly inhabited by hot chicks that are all crazy about Kenshi. Kenshi enters a school for young mecha pilots. Part 1 of this series mainly covers his daily life and develops his relationship with the girls at the school. There is, however, trouble brewing on Geminar. A mysterious group has plans that threaten the people of Geminar, and somehow, Kenshi fits into their plan.

I expected a little more action from this series, because of the title, "War On Geminar". I think that the war actually starts in part 2. There are some major differences with this series and the original Tenchi Muyo series that this spins off of. The characters are the main difference. They are all good though. This set has 7-50 minute episodes. So it is actually a long as a 26-episode series if you include part 2. The situations are more suggestive than the original series, but there isn't any nudity. I think it should be rated PG-13, but whatever. The animation, voice acting and soundtrack are all top notch; as you probably expected from the Tenchi franchise. Although different from what I expected, this series did entertain me. I hope it picks up a bit in part 2, and I wish that it was a little cheaper. Other than those 2 little details, I think this is a good buy. If you like the older Tenchi series, you'll probably enjoy this one too.

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 for the anime but... May 27, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I'll be the first to say this is a great series. However, Funimation's translation contained a number of issues I found extremely frustrating. There weren't too many real errors, but some of the translation choices were annoying or worse. For instance, Funimation sometimes seems to want to overemphasize genre in their translation, made obvious here with their obsessive insertion of "mecha" wherever they think they can get away with it. "Holy Armor" suddenly becomes "Sacred Mechanoid", and "Holy Knight" turns into "Sacred Mechamaster", and largely unrelated devices like Wahan's robot are given almost identical names. The ultimate result to me was to make a lot of things sound silly.
What was far worse was the series description. Where in the world did these people get the idea of the conflicts being "intergalactic"? This'd be the first intergalactic battle I've seen that takes place entirely on one planet, involving people who don't appear to have ever even heard of space flight, with one single boy from another dimension(or something) stranded there whose civilization has barely managed to reach their moon. I've often felt that Funimation's descriptions and advertisements went a little overboard emphasizing specific aspects they thought would sell (in particular focusing entirely on fanservice regardless of the story that goes along with it), showing no interest in anything past the obvious, but this's the first time they seemed to create a description that makes up a completely different story altogether.
