Tenchi ignored the warning to never go inside the caves shrine, and now he has released a demon! Okay, actually, the demon is really a beautiful space pirate named Ryoko, but she did blow up his school. Tenchis troubles arent over yet as the Jurai princesses Ayeka and Sasami and the Galaxy Police Officer Mihoshi fall from the sky attempting to capture the alluring space pirate. With four beautiful women stranded in his house, Tenchi will never get any rest!

What you have here is a hybrid anime that used many of the qualities of other good animes and improved upon all of them while, at the same time, adding its own unique touch. Tenchi Muyo is a sci-fi show, a love comedy, and an anime drama all at the same time. Everything flows together and the planning and execution of this series is breathtaking to behold. The music, animation, directing, and story coalesce into something that is just really special. When animes like this started showing up in America around 1995, it was a golden moment for young people.
One warning, though. I need to warn parents about this anime. There is nudity in the last episode, so you might want to keep this away from your child until they turn 18. It's not GROSS nudity, however, it's there, for sure.
Although the Tenchi Muyo anime series became a massive hit in its native Japan and other neighboring nations, it was never fortunate enough to gain that kind of success in the United States. That's a real shame, because this is one of the best anime series out there. It DID air briefly in America on the Cartoon Network, but it never really won the audiences over the way series like Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z did. But this series is every bit as good as the animes that DID achieve fame in America. Read on for my review of this set.
It's hard to describe this series because there are so many twists and turns in the plot, but I'll try my best. The story follows a young man named Tenchi Masaki, who has just returned to school from a long break. Soon enough, he meets up with a rather strange cast of characters, and discovers that he may be the last hope for saving the universe! To make things even more difficult for him, many of these strange characters he has met fall in love with him, and this creates some competition amongst them that results in some rather comical scenes.
Once again, DVDs featuring an uncut dub and an uncut sub have been released. This is great because you get both versions of the series. There are also some bonus features as well. There aren't a whole lot of bonuses, but at least there are some - a number of anime DVDs don't have any at all!
Overall this is an excellent DVD set, and it's good to have all the episodes of this classic series on DVD at long last. Still, the DVDs could have been done a little better. If you're an anime fan, this is a strongly recommended release.
