Movie Reviews

Tenchi with diffrent characters and still diffrent.
Christopher S. Jones | Georgia | 09/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This anime is a very good one. The characters look like characters from Tenchi Muyo and that adds to the story. Its a bit more adult than tenchi muyo as there is nudity in the beginning. The innocence of the Photon makes the story interesting. At times you can tell that he has no idea what is really going on and then there are times, like when photon is fighting, that he seems to be so in control of things. The action that i have seen isnt corney and the comedy is very good. I have seen and own the english version and the dubbing is very good."
Delightfully silly

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This series is supposedly set in the same universe as the original Tenchi Muyo OAV, so expect similar art style, similar technology, and similar attitude -- but with the slapstick humor and fanservice nudity raised significantly. The main character has the innocence of the brain-dead, and yet is somehow in control of the odd directions the plot skitters to. The result is truly strange and truly hilarious. The animation and art quality are consistently high, but I have not seen the US release of this series and can't comment on the production quality of the English version."
