"Although this story is excelent in and of itself, it is HIGHLY encouraged that those who have GXP get themselves the Tenchi Muyo OVA series. (Currently spanning thirteen episodes and promises to continue in the not too distant future.) Fans of the original Tenchi muyo will get the most out of this with all their insight and knowledge behind some seemingly unnoticed comment or fact. (Those who know OVA episode thirteen know Seryio. JUSTICE! MUAHAHAHA!) The BGM is excelent in my oppinion (My personal favorite being the Mikagami's appearance from the first DVD... ) and for the most part keeps up with the story. Animation is spectacular, looking to be a combination of older style animation for most scenes, and '3D' modeling for the ships and other objects of that nature. (I don't doubt both are done VIA computer now.) English voice acting talent fits the characters quite well, and is done superbly. Characterizations feel like they actually belong to that character for REAL. I still suggest you watch it in japanese and subtittled, as to match the lip-flapping, they had to edit dialogue. I personally can't wait until the rest of this is released. (Especially the episode which cameos the original Tenchi cast... whichever one that was...) This is WORTH the buy if you're a Tenchi fan. If you're unfamilliar... Get the Tenchi Muyo OVA first."
