Editorial Reviews

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! A true classic never goes out of style, and Tenchi is the original anime harem comedy that started it all.

Everyone's favorite luckless hero is back for more intergalactic hijinks in Tenchi Universe, an alternate universe retelling of the original Tenchi canon. Seventeen year old Tenchi Masaki is a regular guy whose life takes a turn for the outrageous when Ryoko the stunning space pirate crashes at his grandfather s shrine. In the bat of an eye, Tenchi finds himself surrounded by a bevy of bodacious intergalactic beauties who'll do everything they can to make him late for class!

Tenchi Universe is not a sequel to the original Tenchi Muyo anime. It's more or less a reboot of the franchise. It would not be the only reboot they did as they did the same with the Tenchi in Tokyo series.

Universe still has the same concept as the original series though. Tenchi meets some strange women and wacky hijinks happen. Unlike the original series though, the story revovles more around Ayeka this time though. Which is fair because in the original series, Ryoko and Washu tended to have more of the story about them and their enemies. This series also marks the debut of fan-favorite Kiyone to the franchise.

She is Mihoshi's partner in the Galaxy Police, who just can't endure Mihoshi's problems...all she wants to be a top officer in the GXP, but with Mihoshi as her partner, that's near impossible.

The Main characters from the original series return but their stories have been tweaked. For example, in the original series the monster in the shrine was actually Ryoko. In Universe though, the monster is actually Washu. You still get to enjoy the antics of Tenchi, Ryoko, Ayaka, Mihoshi, Grandpa, Sasami, Ryo-Ohki, and the rest of the gang. Though the backstories for all the characters have been altered from the previous series.

The series still has the funny comedy the original had. In a way it's funnier than the original series. Some of the scences in the show are gut-splitting funny. It turns serious in the later half of the show, which the Tenchi series always does well.

It's double the length of the first show, you get 26 episodes as opposed to the 13 episode original series. Though it seems like a bit much, the story and characters never get tired or boring. It's a blast to watch from beginning to end.

Tenchi Universe was the first series I ever bought on DVD. I saw the series on TV and decided I had to have it. Tenchi Universe has everything you could hope for in an anime. Great characters, comedy, romance, action and sci-fi adventure. Universe has a much more cohesive story line than the other seasons. Although the whole Tenchi series is good there are lots of holes in the plots. Universe makes more sense. The ending of this series is by far the best as well. You have got to watch Tenchi Universe.

Before the age of internet downloads, cable tv was just starting, and dvd's - the only way a person could have enjoyed anime was to go to stores like FYE (Camelot and Suncoast at the time) and Bestbuy and load up on overpriced VHS tapes - but there was some lights to the fledgling American Anime fans - these were Robotech, Star Blazers, Voltron, Sailor Moon (sorry but it is true), and TENCHI.

Poor Tenchi - he is a 16 year old earthling who lives with his father and grandfater who is a priest at a local shrine but his world is about to take a complete 180 when a spaceship lands in the lake that he is standing at and sees a cute, but drunk lady. When she comes to, she says she is Ryoko, and an evil space pirate is pursuing her - then a giant suit of combat armor appears and attacks. Soon the "pirate" is discovered to be everyones favorite ditzy detective Mihoshi and Ryoko is the evil space pirate. This starts the story, and as Tenchi puts it the carnival that his life will take as other girls come into his life, the princesses Ayeka and Sasami, the mad scientist Washu (who is a genius, but things tend to blow up in her face), Kyone the GXP detective who has to put up with Mihoshi, and others who pop in and out. But Tenchi has a destiny, and these girls are the key that will take him to other dimensions, and into space.

I first got into Tenchi by seeing the first movie (which actually takes place in this universe not the OVA's). You can say he is the start to the harem comedy series that all others copy from. A definate classic that anyone can enjoy with laughs, cringes and head shakes. Enjoy!

Finally! I waited so long to own the this anime classic and thanks to funimation I have that chance. I have been a tenchi fan since 2000 when it premiered on cartoon network.

Repurchased this after selling the out of print version for $90. I am so glad the prices went back to normal with this product!

If you have never watched the Tenchi series, Tenchi Universe in my opinion is the best of them all. Every episode is like a different story. It has a running plot but every episode is genuine.

This was the one that started all the Tenchi series and for an early 90's anime it would still be a hit (I believe) if it were released today. It seems that many of the anime shows during the past 10 years are based totally on the character study of this Tenchi series. The quiet sub-dued boy hero, the veluptious women with humungous tata's, the little furry animals that can change into whatever and so on. This series has all of that and more. Very interesting and the episodes seem to flow nicely.

I watched this series years ago and it's still the same way I remember it: funny and entertaining. The voice acting is a bit hit or miss in the first few episodes but you can tell how much it changes as it gets toward the middle and end. For it's time the animation is still pretty good too. I would recommend this to people who are first getting into anime.

Any static audio issues in ep. 24?

Why no Blu ray release?
Well this was made in the mid 90's so it's cel animated. Not digitally.

Only problem is they can't release it on blu- if it hasn't already been done in Japan(which It hasn't AFIK,correct me if i'm wrong) or get a film transfer from them.

I'm hoping these look better, but considering they... Read More
