Product Description

In the beginning, there was Tenchi. Back when the only cure for an anime fix was a trip to the mall to load up on VHS tapes. Back when cable television first introduced this amazing new genre to American fans. The times may have changed since those good old days, but we're thrilled to be bringing Tenchi back in this exclusive three movie collection! A true classic never goes out of style, and Tenchi is the original anime harem comedy that started it all.Tenchi Muyo in Love: The terrifying space criminal Kain has escaped from his galactic prison, destroyed the Galaxy Police headquarters, and singled out Earth as his next target! Can anything stop his reign of terror! Meanwhile, Tenchi has problems of his own! His house has suddenly vanished, his body is beginning to disappear, and his only hope for survival is a wild ride back to 1970! Tenchi Muyo in Love 2: When Tenchi vanishes into thin air, Ayeka and Ryoko track their man to a parallel version of Tokyo! The luckless lad has taken up with a mysterious beauty named Haruna, and he doesn't even recognize his lady friends from back home. Can Ayeka and Ryoko figure out what Haruna is up to in time to save dear sweet Tenchi!?The Daughter of Darkness: Tenchi gets the shock of a lifetime when a pretty young girl wanders out of nowhere and starts calling him "Daddy!" Ryoko and Ayeka are beyond jealous, and everyone wants to know who the mother could be. Little do they know, Yuzuha, the Demoness of Darkness, is on a mission of vengeance that could mean big trouble for Papa Tenchi!

The Limited Edition comes with a collectible art booklet.

The original OVA Tenchi Muyo! (1992) scored such a big hit on both sides of the Pacific, the characters were soon translated to the big screen. All three features have a darker tone than the OVA and broadcast series, although the characters remain true to their established personalities. Tenchi Muyo in Love (1996) pits the familiar gang against escaped criminal Kain. He hopes to strike the Masaki family because of their ties to the royal house of Jurai. Capable of moving through time and space, he plots to kill Tenchi's mother Achika before she marries his father. Scientific genius Wasshu transports Tenchi, Ayeka, Sasami, Ryoko, Mihoshi, and Kiyone back to 1970 to defend her. Tenchi's feelings for his mother, who died while he was an infant, give the final confrontation with Kain an unexpected poignance. The Daughter of Darkness (1997) opens on a peaceful summer afternoon at the Masaki home in Okayama; then a mysterious girl appears and calls Tenchi "Daddy." Mayuka was created by the demon Yuzuha, the embodiment of the Tree of Darkness. She fell in love with Yosho, Tenchi's grandfather, when he was a child on Jurai. After centuries of nursing her hatred, she plans to attack Yosho through Tenchi. To defeat her, Tenchi uses his Jurai powers, cleaving the demon in two with the Lighthawk Sword. In Tenchi Forever (sometimes called Tenchi in Love 2, 1999), the title character gets fed up with the endless bickering between Ayeka and Ryoko, goes for a walk in the hills--and vanishes. Haruna, a mysterious girl linked to an ancient camellia bush, has taken him to a parallel world, where he lives a seemingly normal life as a long-haired art student. But he's troubled by headaches and the images of Ryoko that turn up in his drawings. It's interesting to see a slightly older Tenchi, who has a more mature relationship with the eerily beautiful Haruna. But Tenchi fans will miss the endearing silliness that gives the main adventures much of their appeal. This reissued collection comes with a small art booklet. (Rated TV MA: brief nudity, cartoon violence, mild sexual situations) --Charles Solomon

There seems to be a bit of confusion about where the films fit in, so I will explain as I give you my opinion on the three films. Hopefully this will make things more useful for people confused or unsure of the importance of the films.

First of, Tenchi Muyo In Love. This film is the first of the three, and takes place sometime after the ending of the Tenchi Universe TV series. After coming back home from Jurai and finding that the girls have all made their way back to Earth, Tenchi settled into what passes for peace around the Masaki Estate. Peace meaning that Ryoko and Ayeka are still fighting explosively over Tenchi, Washuu is always running wacky, dangerous experiments, Mihoshi makes all manner of unintentional trouble, Kiyone struggles not to kill her partner, and the ever-exasperated Sasami keeps some semblance of peace with her food. The peace is soon broken when supervillain Kain breaks loose from Galaxy Police custody, and begins to carry on his vendetta against the Jurai bloodline by going back in time to kill Tenchi's mother before Tenchi can ever be born. Thus Tenchi and company must travel backwards in time to find and protect his mother, lest Tenchi be erased forever. This film is a very dramatic turn for the series, focusing much less on comedy and introducing a villain who is truly evil. The film doesn't fail to disappoint, and for the time it was made, it had some wonderful visuals. If you're a fan of the Tenchi Universe series, this will serve as a very intriguing follow-up story that will have a radically different feel from what you might be used to in Tenchi, but never to the point where you feel as though the thrill is gone. It's wonderful to see a bold risk taken with this story, and it pays off in a rather emotional manner that is well worth the trip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funimation Delivers The Main Course Minus Desert. February 17, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
New fans to the Tenchi Muyo universe will be in for a treat! Each of these three movies are a good buy and the Blu-Ray transfers look great. I just wish that Funimation could have ported over the extras from the old Pioneer (or Geneon if u prefer) DVDs. Especially the extras from the Tenchi 1 and Daughter of Darkness DVDs. They contained production notes, various Theatrical trailers and TV spots, Interviews, a Tenchi Encyclopedia, hidden angle video, etc. So much left out for the Hard core fan and stuff that the new fan might never see. With these Blu-Rays and DVDs, you get the main course. That's it. No desert.

I just think that Funimation could have done a better job putting these Blu-Rays together. I'm glad to have the Blu-Rays though, and still a highly recommended purchase!

I have been a Tenchi Muyo! fan for a long time, so much so that I searched rigorously for the DVD copies when Genco was still a by-product of Pioneer and not of Universal Studios or Funimation! And needless to say for any hardcore Anime fan out there, I was not excited to hear about how Funimation bought out the English rights to Tenchi Muyo!, and the latest work clearly shows my worries.

But luckily the dubbing here for all three movies were all done by the original cast from Pioneer! And although the sound in my opinion sounds pretty much standard in terms of 2.1 Stereo, (just could be my crappy RCA stereo though so take that part with a grain of salt), but the upscale quality of the Blu-Ray videos are very well done. I was very impressed, because usually Funimation does a really crappy job at that. Now even though you can still see some grain, its from the original artwork of the animation and not at all the result of bad pixilation. But never the less it looks good.

Now I know they force the DVD's on some of you you and that on the other hand I think look's very pixilated! The original DVD's done by Genco and Pioneer were a lot better! I think what Funimation tried to do was upscale the DVD quality for more modern wide screen televisions, as opposed to the original squared 420p tube television that was actually intended for during the 90's. Honestly I think they should've left that part alone.

Now the movie's themselves are a different matter, a matter in which I'll be very brief.
Tenchi Muyo in Love! - Taking place after the events of the Tenchi Universe continuum, It is a story where an A1 class criminal escapes from a subspace prison and goes back in time to kill a woman by the name of Achika Musaki, Tenchi's mother.

4.0 out of 5 stars My thoughts on this Blu Ray set. December 21, 2012
By EAG
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a great Blu ray set, but not for 70 bucks. At $40 buck its an excellent deal.

Tenchi Muyo in Love:

Video: B / Film A+

Tenchi Muyo in Love is on my top 20 anime films of all time. This movie was my first experience watching anime. The only draw back is that you need to watch the TV series first to have an appreciation for the movie. One of the best anime soundtracks ever. As for the video, the film elements appear very soft, unfocused or blurry mostly due to the age of the movie. This movie would look beautiful if a proper remaster was done, doubt that will happen though. There is also a good amount of film grain throughout. For HD I would say that the picture is just average at best, but it is the best the movie has looked for a North American release of the film. Not sure if its an upconvert from an old master. Just dont expect crystal clear sharp images. A bit dissapointed, but happy to have it on Blu ray and is a night and is a vast improvement over the old DVD version. Must own!

Tenchi Muyo in Love 2:

Video: A / Film A
Excellent conclusion to the Tenchi Universe series following the first movie. Brings everything to a nice conclusion. Character development, especially between Aeka and Ryoko, is what makes the movie. Also we get to find out which one of the girls Tenchi finally chooses. Great transfer considering it is a newer movie. Nice sharp images. Probably the best this movie can look. Must own for fans of the TV series and a great companion to the first movie.

Tenchi Muyo: Daughter of Darkness

Video: B+ / Film C+

Not one of the better Tenchi movies. A bit sappy for my tastes. Takes place in the OVA universe. Movie had very and extremely memorable parts, but it could have been better.
