Movie Reviews

A nice wrap up to the new tenchi series
Susan | Virginia | 05/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, a lot of people don't like Tenchi in Tokyo (Shin Tenchi for you die hard otaku out there) and I can see why. It IS different tenchi fare) I however was one of the few who really enjoyed the story If you have liked the series so far you will LOVE the ending because everything finally comes together and you get to see who sakuya REALLY is. ^_^"
The Final Conflict
Phil Humphrey | 06/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The last chapter in the Tenchi in Tokyo series is a worthy ending, and it's only at this point that several of the key questions are finally answered. At this stage we know roughly who Yugi is, but what is her interest and involvement with the Masaki family, and what are her motives, all is revealed in these final episodes. These final few chapters bring together all the past elements of the series, including some of the events, which at the time may have seemed a little strange or unrelated, but now can be explained, plus this DVD includes the pivotal final battle between Tenchi and Yugi. If like me, you bought the first Tenchi in Tokyo chapters, then simply had to buy the rest to follow the unravelling story, this final addition will not disappoint. The quality of the animation, like the entire Tokyo series, being TV derived is not quite up to the quality seen in the OAV series, however it has a unique style and in some ways is more real and the characters more expressive than seen in the OAV box set. I recommend this Tokyo series to anyone who has the OVA set and wants more. The quality may not be as good but the overall story, being slightly less fluffy makes up for any other short fallings. Does Ryoko or Ayeka ever get Tenchi? You'll have to watch these final episodes to find out."
The last of the Tenchi In Tokyo DVDs.

"This DVD holds four episodes, giving the viewer a great ending to the story. As the family comes back together, they each and everyone show that trust and love can truly combine their skills and powers. Each minion of Yugi's is taken out of action and in the end, with the others' help, Tenchi goes after Yugi herself, armed with a sword made from all the crystals his mother left him. He must win because if Tenchi fails the Earth is doomed.
But if he kills Yugi he also kills her shadow, the girl he loves, Sakuya! The ending is somewhat of a surprise, but given Tenchi's nature, maybe it shouldn't of surprised me as much as it did.
I happen to really enjoy the fight between Ryoko and Hotsuma, and the final episode is both touching and very funny. I also happen to be a fan of Yugi, I really enjoyed her character, even if her fashion sense was a tad on the blah side."
Some of the most touching anime out there...

"Starting on this DVD, things start to get more serious. Sakuya realises she can't remember anything before she saw Tenchi. She gets very frightened and she won't let Tenchi do anything without her. Things keep building and the tension keeps growing... As I watched the end of episode 24, "Yugi's Shadow", I couldn't help but cry. This is one of the saddest anime episodes ever. "why did they have to do that??? i liked Sakuya so much!" This episode definetly knows how to rip your heart out. I don't think there is any sane human who can watch this episode and not feel strong emotions during the Tenchi and Sakuya flashback scene. At the last episode, Tenchi brings Yugi to justice -- but not the way you hoped he would. This final part of one of my favourite series really shows how much emotion can be evoked through animation."
