Very well done . . .

  • Nov 27, 2001
For the first theatrical release of Tenchi Muyo, this was well done. The artwork and sound are top-notch. But the reason I am rating this a 4 is because #1 the story moves SLOWLY! It takes a good half hour to get into the main plot line. #2 Unless you REALLY care about the mushy, in depth character development of the story of Tenchi's mother and the story of how Tenchi's parents came to love each other, this whole movie will bore the pants off you. The humor we normally get in a Tenchi flick just isn't here to support this.

I understand that the director and screen writers were going for a serious, and meaningful anime movie, and I don't have a problem with that, and to any Tenchi fan - you will need to see this at least once. Maybe not own it, but definitely see it. The story DOES get moving towards the last part, and surprise surprise for a Tenchi story, the plot line does have closure. So over all I was happy with this DVD, but casual Tenchi watchers may want to rent instead of buy.

What did you think of this review?
