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.Read more ›
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!
The transfers are pretty good, you can see the dust on the animation cells and little imperfections from the film and comes with the original dubs which is always a plus.
IMO: Ryoku is the savior in 2 of the movies. She fights side-by-side with Tenchi. Someone that does that is a great partner in life. But you are left to choose since Tenchi still hasn't.
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.Read more ›
