3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the last two episodes, July 31, 2010
This review is from: Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Ohki: The Complete Series (The Viridian Collection) (DVD)
Like many people my age I was treated to the strange, cliffhanger ending of the original Tenchi series when it aired on Cartoon Network in 2000. The series was fabulous: fun characters, creative and pseudo-mystical sci-fi trappings, and lots of humor. But how did it end?

Years later this came out. It is 7 episodes to wrap the thing up, and on a whole they leave much to be desired. The charm of the original series is lost with boring stories that lack the atmosphere and charm of the originals... that's true at least of the first five episodes, but then we get the final two: a suprising return to form that fills us in on exactly what the point of the series was and wraps things up in satisfactory fashion.

I get the feeling that these final two episodes are comprised of ideas that were founded back in the mid-'90s when the original series was beging thought up, and the first five episodes were just filler, like how most of George Lucas' backstory for Star Wars was used in Episode III leaving him to come up with a lot of foam peanuts to fill those first two movies.

It's worth watching only because the first 13 epsidoes from the 1990s are, and you need this to wrap those up.
