Movie Reviews

The best of Tenchi In Tokyo
seb | Cincinnati, OH USA | 05/29/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In my opinion, these three episodes are the best in this series. While the animation in Tenchi In Tokyo is not as sweet as Tenchi Muyo, i think the storyline's better. These episodes have different faces. it's funny, sad, romantic, and even makes you angry at times. The first episode, "Tokyo Or Bust", is a humorous episode as Ayeka (dragging along Sasami) try to get to Tokyo to talk to Tenchi. In order to get there faster, they team up with the mysterious biker Masayo. The man she wants to be with is a very fast traveller, and Masayo is always trying to catch up to him with her bike. This episode is crazy... one of the better Tenchi episodes.The other two episodes take place at Tenchi's school at the time of the Carnival. It centres around the relationship with Sakuya, but the Okayama gang shows up and Washu trashes the school with another one of her bizarre inventions! Tenchi and Sakuya also get much closer.It's surprising to see anime that is this entertaining. The fun is brought out by the exaggerated physics, sparse dialogue, and obscure depictions of human love. This DVD is one to check out."
The turning point of a very strange series!!!

"There is no end to the ongoing battle among Tenchi fans concerning the Tenchi in Tokyo series. Many genuinely enjoy the series' unusual animation and more light-hearted approach, while many others feel that TinT is far too slapstick in nature for what is one of the best and most popular ongoing anime sagas. However, anyone who has seen Tenchi in Tokyo agrees that this volume contains the turning point of the series, both in style and content.Early episodes of Tenchi in Tokyo appear to have been aimed at a relatively young target audience. The action is slapstick in nature, and the "SuperDeformed" style of animation is resorted to frequently. In fact, much of the story line is just plain silly.However, with episodes 15 and 16, the series makes a sharp turn toward the better. The animation settles into a more conventional and familiar style, the story becomes much more sober and mature, and the relationships among the characters start to solidify. In particular, the interplay between Tenchi, Sakuya and Ryoko in the last two episodes of this volume becomes very intense and often poignant. From this point on, Tenchi in Tokyo is a series to be reckoned with.For those who enjoyed TinT, this is the pivotal volume, and likely a favorite. For those who can't quite make up their minds, this is the volume to start with.Either way, if you are a Tenchi fan, or just interested in some entertaining romantic comedy, this is a very good DVD."
