Tenchi Masaki gets the surprise of his life when a teenage girl approaches him and calls him "Daddy." Believing that the girl is mistaking him for someone else, Tenchi brings her home to figure out what is going on, which turns out to be a big mistake. When the girl introduces herself as Mayuka Masaki, Tenchi's daughter, the Masaki household is thrown into yet another frenzy.

Thinking that Mayuka is just taking advantage of Tenchi, the girls refuse to believe that she is really his child. However, when DNA testing reveals that Tenchi is indeed her father, Washuu comes to the conclusion that Mayuka is his daughter from the future, the result of a recent time distortion. With this new revelation, everyone tries to welcome Mayuka into their lives with the sole exception being Ryouko Hakubi, who senses something sinister lurking beneath Mayuka's charm.

Tenchi the Movie 2: Daughter of Darkness is a monument to the original series not easily forgotten. The characters are more real than before, and hold a real connection within the house.

All the characters I didn't wention were also well ...

If you like Tenchi Muyo read on...if not...well you can still read on!

This movie has litlle to do with the actual series, unless you count Tenchi Universe then it does. The movie has a somewhat sketchy story but the drama that follows afterwards is funny, but also very serious. The story features a woman that comes along claiming to be Tenchis daugher. When Washu realizes that this is actually true she investigates! Soon what follows are events that put Tenchi, Ryoko and all the other residents friendships at risk, just for the ultimate revenge!!

It has great comedy and a pretty solid story. If youre a ...

Hey it's the incest Tenchi movie, where Demona from "Gargoyles" is the final boss! ...Sigh.

Somehow this one makes even less sense then the first film, unless you assume that everyone is drunk the whole time. But at least the sub voice acting is better. I think the dub delivered Yuzuha's last/second-to-last line better, though.

So Yuzuha had a crush on kid!Yosho, and got... banished when she was caught? And suddenly she spies on the Masaki gang in the present and decides to... create a person from her hair and the grandson of her crush? To infiltrate(?) the Masaki home and kidnap Tenchi? I get that killing ...
