According to New Type magazine, the long delayed "Tenchi Muyo!" series "Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari" was finally confirmed. The official website indicates that the production company is AIC Spirits.
In 1998, the official "Tenchi Muyo!" web site announced that "Seikishi" TV anime will be aired from the spring 1999, but this announcement was withdrawn later. In 2004, the official web site announced the anime to be aired in the spring 2005, but this announcement was retracted again. In 2006, "Seikishi" was officially described as "Type: unknown, Airing schedule: unknown". Now in 2008, the character designs were published. The airing schedule was not given in the article.

Everything old really is new again. Saber Marionette, Slayers, Hajime no Ippo, and now this - the anime industry seems to be in revival mode.


Also, Casshern and Space Adventure Cobra, a new Fist of the North Star series among others. LOTS of remakes going on. It seems like the year for it. There also seems to be a resurrgence in interest in some of the older stuff too.

Can't say I'm looking forward to this; last Tenchi series I watched was the Tokyo one. Total shit.

wow another tenchi....those character models are too unfamiliar

Because it's set in an alternate universe like i already pointed out. Meaning a new cast probably, with a few of the originals returning.

Oh god why won't they let it die, why do they insist on making more?

Because the Tenchi franchise is Masaki baby, he has no reason to stop.

well, sounds promising. Hopefully this will turn out to be good news.

Surprised at anyone saying they haven't seen the first Tenchi. In my day, it was required viewing, everyone had seen it *is old* lol
