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 read more

I'm a huge fan of the Tenchi franchise. But believe me when I say that this attempt was ill fated from the start. I just couldnt get into the story. I guess it had something to do with the main cast splitting up for the majority of the series- which I hated. The best part of Tenchi is the characters and the romantic conflicts that erupt between them. When Yugi was introduced I immediately began to dread what I knew was coming. This was going to suck. And it did. Maybe not completely but certainly for the most part. Yugi looked like she had a read more

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'. read more

(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 read more
