An amazing end to a great "Tenchi" series now on DVD!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The final volume of Tenchi Universe is finally out on DVD, and this was just what I was waiting for! I picked up the DVD as soon as I could, and was extremely anxious to watch it. Universe is my favorite Tenchi series, and the final episodes are absolutely beautifully done. There is far more time for character development to happen in Universe, which is really shown off by the four final episodes.In episode 23, "No Need For Karma", Aeka pours out her heart to Tenchi, and we finally get introduced to Universe's version of everyone's favorite villain, Kagato, and his history with Yosho.In episode 24, "No Need For Ryoko", Kagato kidnaps Aeka and forces Tenchi and friends to finally go to Jurai to save Aeka. They're in a tough bind when Nagi, the all purpose filler character/Deus ex Machina shows up and saves the day, and actually serves a purpose to the outcome of the story. While in episode 23, Aeka made her feelings clear to Tenchi, in 24 it's Ryoko's turn as she begs Tenchi once more not to go through with saving Aeka. While we always knew Ryoko cared for Tenchi, this episode finally shows it. There are some absolutely beutiful scenes in this episode, and one which actually brought a tear to my eye.In episode 25, "No Need For a Showdown", Aeka shows off her true power and love for Tenchi, while he and Kagato fight it out in a final showdown between good and evil...In episode 26, "No Need For a Conclusion", The fight is over, and Tenchi recollects the events that led to his return to Earth. Tenchi then starts recalling the beginning of his adventures in the same way that episode 1 starts, finally explaining the "never-ending festival". Loose-ends are tied up with a surprise ending that you can't help but love. This is why I love this show!Now that I've raved enough about the actual episodes, I'll talk a bit about the DVD itself. The video and sound quality is excellent at most times, but some scenes seem to look better than others. One of the only complaints I would have about this DVD is that there are virtually no extras. Sure, there are a few sketches, and two-- count them, two-- character profiles, but that's it. This was quite disappointing. Another minor complaint is that they changed the final episode's ending animation. In the original VHS release, they had the full version of "Up-Walk in Galaxy" (With both Ai Orikasa and Yumi Takada singing) played on top of most important scenes from the beginning of the series to the end. This is a very minor complaint, but it was sure nicer than the normal ending theme."
Tenchi's end is here....or isn't?

"I was so sad when I knew Tenchi's final episodes were near.This ending is very dramatic and very fitting to the whole story.Many secrets are reveal in these final episodes leding us thinking,why didn't I think of that?I was amaze by the way they organized the story.I have to say that my favorite part was when the serie take us again to the beggining where all really started making the story take a new sence.You don't want to miss what really happened to Tenchi and his friends at the end of the story,now do you?I totally recomend this one to you."
A Fit Ending

"Although those favoring the Ova series might not be happy with this light ending, it concisely wraps up the Universe series and leaves a window open for future installments. The basic plot of the final 4 episodes entails confessions and realizations of some of the main charachters, the apparent death of one, and the defeat of intergalatic evil. The dvd gets 5 stars for its keeping in line with the Tenchi genre."

"This Tenchi Universe Dvd has 4 episodes and all of them are excellent, the first No need for Karma explains about the villian's past, the person whose had Jurian forces chase after Tenchi and his friends, then the next three episodes involve a desperate struggle, against him, the last episode however is very interesting and leaves you off in perfect condition to start a Tenchi in Tokyo DVD Collection, you may not enjoy those as much as you did the Tenchi Universe, but they will keep up with your hunger for the Tenchi Series. This DVD is a must buy, so buy it now!"
