Tenchi Muyo! Fanclub

Information
Tenchi Muyo! (天地無用! Tenchi Muyō!?, lit. "No Need for Tenchi!"), is a Japanese anime, light novel, and manga franchise. The original series began with a six episode OVA called Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki created by Masaki Kajishima and Hiroki Hayashi, and released in Japan on September 25, 1992. As its popularity grew, it spurred a seventh episode titled Tenchi Muyo! Special: The Night Before the Carnival (also known as the Tenchi Special) and a stand-alone Tenchi Muyo! Mihoshi Special. A second OVA series was directed by Kenichi Yatani that was released in 1994, and a third OVA series, also directed by Kenichi was released in 2003. A twenty-six episode anime TV series called Tenchi Universe was released in 1995 retelling and expanding upon the original six-episode story. Tenchi in Tokyo was created in 1997, and is another alternate version of the original story. The latest version of the series called Ai Tenchi Muyo!, was broadcast on Tokyo MX in 2014. --------------------------------------------------------------- Tenchi Muyo!

Meanwhile, Tenchi's father and grandfather come to the decision that it may be time for Tenchi to learn even more about his past and his Jurian heritage. And the arrival of a couple of new female residents to the Masaki household threatens to upset the balance and inflame the rivalry over Tenchi's already decidedly divided affection. Tenchi Muyo!

Otherwise, life goes on as usual for the Masaki clan.

While the storyline parodies various anime works, Mihoshi's Special explores Mihoshi's past and provides a glimpse at her probable future.

When the mission fails and Kenshi is captured, he discovers he's been lied to by the very culprits who transported him to this strange new world.

His luck brings him into the lives of four women who have a habit of cancelling out his bad luck, turning it into good. Armed with this luck, they pilot the most powerful ships in the Tenchi Universe to defeat the Da Ruma pirates. Now the only uncertainty is whether the sexy Amane Kaunaq, a former model turned into a GP detective, sturdy Kiriko Masaki, who has known Seina for years, the mysterious Ryoko Balta, a former pirate named after the legendary one, or the child-like Neju Na Melmas, a powerful 2000 year-old priestess, will win Seina. - Same Setting/Spin-off - Dual Parallel! Trouble Adventures Kazuki Yotsuga is your regular average nerd in high-school, except he isn't smart. He has this website which relates to his visions that only he can see. His vision's are about robots who keep fighting each other battle after battle. One day he is sent to a, "parallel world" where these visions exist and he joins a company to fight back against the devious RaRa, who want to take over the world. Dual Parallel! Trouble Adventures Special Peace has been brought to both earths, and everyone is living out their lives as normal citizens. But how normal could life be for war hero Kazuki living with five beautiful women under the same roof... Apparently, he doesn't need to wait long to find out.

One day, he finds himself engaged to the beautiful fugitive pilot Keyne Acqua after writing "baka" on her forehead. And that's the least of his worries as he must protect both Aun and Keyne from the evil Papacharino, who seeks to steal the secrets of "Aho" (another word for idiot) energy from Keyne's grandfather's ship. - Recommendations -

In some franchises, this would be the only released version of a continuation of the story :P

In 2009 I rewatched my old favorite Tenchi Universe and found it somewhat disappointing, then I watched GXP and thought it was much better than its reputation. I'll be rewatching GXP later this year, maybe it's time for another disappointment. :D In the dub, I liked the GXP harem a bit more than the original - that is, the OVA group that excluded Kiyone.

And sure, GXP's version of "Tenchi solution" was cheap, but I much preferred it over no final coupling at all (OVA series until the upcoming fifth clears that up, and War on Geminar), an out-of-nowhere pairing (Tenchi Universe dub - I expect I'll like it better when I watch the sub), or new OC girl victory (Tokyo and Ai, though in Ai it didn't bother me).

But isn't that precisely the most quintessentially Tenchi Muyo way to handle that? :D This franchise gradually became a masterwork of dissatisfaction.

I really thought I'd die without ever seeing him with anyone in the OVA timeline.

DenpaNyan | Jan 31, 8:48 AM
Oh boi. At least that sounds like it could potentially be better than the 4th OVA series in some way.

nDroae | Jan 30, 8:28 PM
Apparently the fifth OVA series will be about Tenchi's children, and will have six episodes. And good grief, it had better have action and adventure this time. https://www.uselesstenchi.org/Forum/index.php?topic=1272.0

OVA 1 watch wraps up next week. It's been really fun for me to rediscover the series in Japanese; I look forward to the rest, especially GXP (which I seem to have liked far more than most) and of course Tenchi Universe.

nDroae | Dec 28, 2018 8:28 PM
Change of plans following feedback, we will be doing a simulwatch after all :)

nDroae | Dec 27, 2018 9:40 PM
I've invited a few friends who haven't seen Tenchi to do a group watch, Reddit style - that is, we don't watch a stream together online with chat or anything, but we independently follow a watching schedule and come to talk about the episodes as we watch them. We're doing only the first half-cour OVA (although I'd be happy to carry it on beyond that if anyone wants to). All are welcome.

The original OVAs are on Crunchyroll now, transferred from Funimation. Region restrictions are caused by Funimation only buying rights for those regions back when they licensed it.

OVAs 1 and 2, available in USA and Canada:

OVA 3, available in the USA, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/tenci-muyo-ryo-ohki

They also have Tokyo and GXP. Universe hasn't come over yet, but probably will at some point since Funimation has it.

Tenchi Universe is the only anime show I ever bought on DVD. (Since then I've bought BDs instead)
