Movie Reviews

A really fun series, depending on your expectations.
David Greenwood | Hanover, MD United States | 04/04/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this series at Katsucon, and for about the first 10 minutes I was ready to walk out (Just another boring mecha assault). But once the actual story began (about the three wacky girls trying to get back to earth) I instantly fell in love. Miss Hanabishi is a laugh and half, always feeling bewildered, occasionally reciting appropriate haiku, and generally bringing a ray of sunshine to the festivities. Everything is light-hearted and silly, and that's good enough for me. Sure, the plot basically disappears midway through episode 2, but it was just holding the show down anyway. Once they stop paying attention to the boring story about the police and the mobsters, there's more time to devote to our three plucky heroines being silly. If all you want is to have a good time, Tenamonya voyagers is right for you (Heck, just the opening credits, in which the cast is washed, dried, and turned into laundry will bring a smile to your face). No, there isn't an ending, but that's the entire joke. Nothing in this series means anything. It seems to have started out as a serious concept, but it ends us just as an excuse for the animators to screw around. And believe it or not, there are some really well directed scenes (of course, they're really well directed scenes of complete idiocy) Enjoy it as pure fun, or go find something more complicated."
Fun, but unfinished

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Tenamonya Voyagers has all the makings of a great series. Likable characters, outstanding animation, a fun storyline, and hilarious humor. So why a mere 3 stars? Because Tenamonya Voyagers feels like a show that was supposed to be 26 episodes but got cancelled after 4. There is no ending and there are 4-5 plots that had yet to be tied up, and from all indications, this is the one and only DVD. There are many anime series that have told a good complete story in four episodes or less, Birdy The Mighty, Combustible Campus Guardress, Blue Submarine No. 6, just to name a few. So I don't see why Tenamonya Voyagers couldn't pull it off considering it was a joint venture between anime powerhouses Bandai, Studio Peirot and AIC. It's really unfortunate since there was a lot of potential."
The wonderful voyage of space

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This short series is quite wonderful to look at. To me, it gave the same episode length feel (how long it felt rather than actual episode length) as Gundam Wing at times. The four episodes or parts of this seem to last forever. In some parts, the animation seems shotty. The voice acting is good, however, at some parts, it seemed kind of dull. The events that the characters go through seem interesting. Overall this is a good series to watch once in a while. I gave it a four star because it just abruptly ends. But, that's how the series was, it just started out of nowhere, and it just ended. Just like the wind, you have no idea where to turn to. This series has plenty of familiar voice actors from other scifi mecha series. As a watcher of all anime, I recommend this to those who would like to try to find their own answers after watching this anime."
