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.

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 ...

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. The acting was wonderful (If you can call speaking into a mike acting. I think you can.) Ryoko's love for Tenchi was equal to, but wholey different from the others. Ayeka was more of a mother figure in this movie, which I feel suites her well. Sasami is the essence of an innocent child, the same as everyone has always loved from the show. All the characters I didn't wention were also well ...

Not to give away too much of the story but Tenchi does a certain thing some would consider to be way out of character a few minutes into the movie.

Also a confused, controlled under-age MINOR sexually solicits her father figure. What the actual ****! I'm sure there were about a million other ways to go about achieving her masters goal than that.

Yeah the Tenchi Muyo series has always been on the sexy side and grouping a bunch of crazy weirdos together....but....

If I could give 0/10 I would. If I could have only unwatched it. I held out hope that it would have some redeeming ...
