One Of The Best Anime Movies Out There!

  • Sep 18, 2000
I had always heard Tenchi Muyo was one of the best anime shows out there but had never had a chance to actually see it, untill I saw this available for rent! This was one of the best movies in anime I have seen in my life! With the right amount of humor, drama, action, and a great score by american composer Christopher Franke make this a movie worth seeing! Plus this movie has some of the best animation displayed in a movie! Tenchi The Movie is a movie see again, and again, and again! Along with it you should pick up the soundtrack, which is good to boot too! A must for any anime fan!

About this movie


Although the first feature in this popular franchise is more serious in tone thanTenchi in TokyoorTenchi Muyô!, the characters prove strong enough to carry a longer story while remaining true to their established personalities.

When the criminal Kain escapes from prison, he destroys Galactic Patrol Headquarters, then moves to Earth to strike the Masaki family, whose link to the royal family of Jurai engenders his hatred. Capable of moving through time as well as space, he plans to kill Tenchi's mother, Achika, before she marries his father, Nobuyuki. If Kain were to succeed, Tenchi would cease to exist, the Masaki line would end, and his friends would disappear.

Scientific genius Washu transports Tenchi, Jurai princesses Ayeka and Sasami, space pirate Ryoko, Galactic Patrol officers Mihoshi and Kiyone, and cabbit Ryo-Ohki back to 1970 to defend Achika. The inevitable wacky contretemps occur--Ayeka and Ryoko get into a fight that brings Tokyo's commuter train system to a halt--and it's interesting to see Nobuyuki as an uncertain architecture student, rather than a comic lecher. The final confrontation with Kain takes on an unusual poignancy from Tenchi's feelings for the mother he never knew (she died while he was an infant).

Unrated; recommended for ages 10 and older for brief nudity and cartoon violence. --Charles Solomon
