Anime DVD Review

If you've seen the Tenchi Muyo TV Series on Cartoon Network, and are already familiar with the characters, then you'll find this OVA series worth every penny. If you haven't seen the series and aren't familiar with the characters, well, you're in for a treat – try and imagine a bizarre and quirky blend of action/adventure, comedy, romance, sci-fi, fantasy/magic, and heartfelt emotion along with quite a few bizarre twists and turns. Combine a wacky storyline (shades of Urusei Yatsura) with some amazingly deep and interesting characters, add a dash of insightful writing and you've got a winner of a series.

What anime fan can't love blue hair?Tenchi Muyo is made up of many multiverses. Rather than following a single storyline, or even two, each unit is practically independent of the others. This can seem confusing initially, but it's the interaction between the characters that remains consistent and ultimately, really what makes every part of the Tenchi universe worth watching. The Tenchi OVA series is by most standards the best of the Tenchi multiverses. The animation is high quality and the story compact. The costuming and technology design of the series is stylistically superior to the rest of the multiverses, and is among the best of anime in general.

Also highly recommended (once you're familiar with the characters) is the movie Tenchi Muyo in Love. This film is so true to the characters and situations that after seeing this film, you'll fall in love with the series all over again. And of course, the animation is outstanding in its quality.

Anime Soundtrack Review

If you want the songs in their original Japanese; get this album instead, however, this is a good album for a true Tenchi fan who wants to learn the songs but doesn't want to spend time trying to translate it all or learn another language just to appreciate it — after all, many of us now watch the dubbed anime, what's wrong with a dubbed soundtrack?

Regardless of the language, the music is still good - catchy, bouncy tunes guaranteed to lift you up and make you feel extraordinary. Most of the themes presented on this album are from the OVA series, but give a good overall impression of the music from the Tenchi multi-verse. Tracks from the popular spinoff "Magical Girl Pretty Sammy" are also included, making this one very complete CD, and a great deal at any price!
