Tenchi Masaki heads out to tackle the big world, setting off to school in Tokyo! But not everyone is happy to hear he is moving away, as his female friends sulk and complain at the prospect of him being alone. However, Tenchi is not by himself for very long, as he soon meets a kind and compassionate girl named Sakuya Kumashiro who helps him get used to life in Tokyo.

The two become close friends, but Sakuya wants more than just that, so she proclaims her love for Tenchi. This confession comes as a shock not only to Tenchi, but also the girls back home. In response, the girls decide to step up their game, and they immediately flock to Tokyo to take Tenchi for themselves.

With the girls competing for his love, Tenchi must decide once and for all who the most important woman in his life is. However, he is going to have a hard time deciding, as strange events start happening that drive Tenchi further apart from his friends.

As one of the less popular Tenchi series, I felt like I should try and even out the opinions a little.

STORY - I'll admit it. The first time I saw this series, I hated it too. But I rewatched the whole thing more recently and found that it actually wasn't as bad as I remembered. Like the Tenchi Forever movie, I think most fans were indignant at the introduction of a "Mary Sue" character and consequently abhorred the entire series. But while yes, Sakuya was more or less an "intruder" character to our good ol' harem, she forces a very interesting situation onto the rest ...

(Re-posting due to cleaning up some of my thoughts and correcting some spelling mistakes)

Story: (3) The problem with Tenchi In Tokyo starts with the plot. The creators of this story came up with this neat concept of Tenchi living in Tokyo as a shrine boy, but failed to bring the most important aspect of the show with them... the girls. Instead they create this vapid girl who doesn't have a personality to take the place of the girls left at home. The charm of the Tenchi series is the fact that Tenchi loves all of these girls unconditionally and surrounds himself with ...

If you were a fan of the original Ryo-ohki ova's but were let down by the dramatic differences in the Tenchi Universe series... then stay the heck away from this. the amount of sillyness from the universe series has been amplified and the story pales in comparison. As a fan of the original ova's, Tenchi in Tokyo has made me wish i had never even watched them and gotten hooked on the tenchi series' to begin with.

However, if you enjoy the Tenchi-Muyo series simplyfor its pure silliness then you will definitely like this anime. I would say it's only slightly more intelligent than 'Ninja Nonsense'. ...
