Synopsis

Tenchi Masaki may be a 17-year-old young man in rural Japan, but little does he know how bad his day will be getting. When a space pirate chased by a pair of Galaxy Police officers crash-lands at his grandfather's temple, Tenchi is sucked into a new adventure that will literally blast him off into outer space and beyond.

Tenchi Universe is a spin-off to Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki. Like its inspiration, the series remains a harem comedy, following the tangled life of Tenchi Masaki and his extraterrestrial visitors.

The story is similar to the first series: progressive events cause an assemblage of characters, mishaps create subplots, a threatening antagonist later appears and the group pits to stop them. The artwork is less shaded and the animation isn't as fluid but it all still looks good. Audio is backed with a library of different music, spot-on sound effects and believably acted voices. Bolder content, like nudity, swearing and sexual references, is a lot more minimal.

After following the first 12 episodes of the Tenchi series, what else is there to do? Watch more Tenchi! Although the Universe concentrates on tons of side-stories about enemies, crazy scientist (i.e. Washu), cabbit romances, overthrowing a kingdom (you know, the general line), it is a good fill of episodes until you get to the "in space" storyline in which you are truly set into the "we've got to get Jurai back" storyline. It has it's great comedic moments, it's tearjerker moments (a certain "death" near the end of the series is a killer...) and the ever happy ending is great. Although I personally read more

Quite a dramatic difference from the Ryo-ohki ova's. they seem to have added more silliness to the story and changed the characters backgrounds completely, and did a total overhaul on washu's personality. She is no longer the deep, calm, and collected person she was in the originals. instead she has become more of a mad scientist with a rediculous ego. though the new storyline is still quite good, the added sillyness and lack of character depth definitly let me down a little bit. but still a good watch.

Tenchi Universe is similar to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya because it has the same: high school kids with powers thing. I think that Tenchi in Tokyo might be similar to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya but i havn't seen it.
Space, Space Battles, Mysterious Characters, and the same general type of feel. Each are unique on its own, but similar in set up.
A normal schoolboy is soon wrapped up in a bizzare reality where he is actually something special.
Both have a strong storyline and developing characters whilst not being too serious; incorporating a lot of comedy.
Made by the same company and has the same plots and story lines (romance).
Instead of having 6 guys chasing 1 chick, there are 6 chicks chasing 1 guy.
It involves magic and time travel as well as showing how fragile the human mind is.
O conhecido tipo de estória onde um rapaz é o centro das atenções, com muitas situações interessantes e personagens expressivos.

This animes are VERY similar. Both had space pirates, galactic government, in love princess, super powers, funny situations.... And the character of the both anime was design by Masaki Kajishima.
