However the sound wasn't all that great for this movie, and let's face it - it is a little depressing to see how hung up on one guy both Ryouko and Ayeka are.
I know that if you fall in love, you fall in love and that is that, but they are depicted so pathetically in this movie it is just sad. Tenchi disappears and they search frantically, fight amongst themselves (which they always do) and are generally worthless.
This third movie in the series does definitely move in a different direction than previous movies. No Star-Wars-Like combat here. Art and feelings and different ideas of reality sure but not a whole lot of what has come to be known as typical Tenchi action. A part of what I really love about the Tenchi series is the comedy and the great action scenes - and taking a lot of it away doesn't really work for me.
It is great that the directors and artists are trying new things, but I think we get a little too much of the other side of Tenchi Muyo in this movie. But rate it as you will, it is still a Tenchi movie, and still worth a watch. You may not want to own it, but I would recommend at least seeing it.
