First off I would like to begin by saying that I am a big Tenchi fan. I feel this movie is one of the best that I have seen in while(although i know its been out for some time now as well). It uses the limited amount of time for a movie well by taking the characters we already know and giving them a serious new problem to figure out in a completely different setting. The characters once again use their own unique talents to help solve it, but the movie provides the viewers with some new important information about Tenchi's mother and read more

Tenchi Muyo was one of my favorite shows to watch as a kid on Toonami every weekday when I would come home from school. It had everything.

Maybe rewatching this as an adult was a mistake. I used to love this franchise when I was younger. Seen everything of the classic "Tenchi" stuff excepting GXP multiple times. Even read some of the manga. This movie is just... 'sad' is being kind.

The best things that can be said for this is that the soundtrack is very good and the animation quality is still pretty good, even with the anime hair. It looks nice and it's detailed and bright, with that extra polish movies typically get. I also still love the way they animate Ryoko and her abilities. Still my favorite version of teleportation, read more

American Studios and Production Committees: Risks and Rewards

In the early-mid 2000s, US licensing companies were involved in numerous anime Production Committees. It didn't go so well for them. This year, several US licensors are trying their luck on Production Committees again. Will it go better this time?
