Tenchi ignored the warning to never go inside the cave’s 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. Tenchi’s troubles aren’t 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars wow Feb. 3 2004
Amazing. This is just one of THOSE series. This is something that just took everything to a brand new level. "Tenchi Muyo" was a real trend setter for Japanese anime and marked Pioneer as one of the true, ahem, "Pioneers" in anime. The animation is FLAWLESS, as is the superb DVD production by Pioneer.
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.
Thanks, Pioneer.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent series March 31 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll Have the Special! Sept. 18 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Episode 7 is supposed to be the final episode of the first OVA series (1-7) but since the first episode of the "infinity" series starts on episode 8 and ends on 13, I do not consider these two universes, but one OVA series consisting of episodes 1-13 and that's how most everyone sees it anyways. So, Episode 7 has Ryoko and Ayeka fighting over Tenchi again and this time, Mihoshi leaves for the Galaxy Police. This was a trick by Ryoko to get Mihoshi out of the picture and to eliminate her as a candidate for Tenchi's love. While Ryoko just wants to sleep with Tenchi, Ayeka's objective is to stop her at all costs. This episode is to good to miss. Out of everything that is Tenchi Muyo, this is my favorite! This Video also includes the Mihoshi special. For some Reason, they didn't include this special on the Tenchi Muyo Ultimate OVA DVD. You can only get it on this tape so buy it now and have it in your collection! The Mihoshi special is about Mihoshi telling a story from one of her galaxy police missions. It's mainly about Ryoko and Washu in a crime operation of stealing ultra energy matter with Mihoshi and Kiyone being hired by Ayeka to capture Ryoko for stealing Tenchi away who is also a GP officer. Later When Pretty Sammy comes around, things get more interesting. I like the ending music of the Pretty Sammy Theme. It sounds best in japanese but the english version is alright. I say buy this video now because of "the night before the carnival" (my favorite) and Just so you can have a copy of the Mihoshi special since it's not even on the DVD That costs 83 Bucks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting..... May 25 2003
By A Customer
This is a good anime, but not the best. I'd prefer it to many other anime, but it still has some parts where you're like "My God, are they done yet?" but they're worth it for all of the awesome scenes. But all anime have their flaws, so this is a nice anime DVD to own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Worth It! May 18 2003
By A Customer
This Series which premiered on Cartoon Network(Cut) is now on DVD in a 4 disc series completing the "Tenchi Muyo OVA" Series. This DVD contains the first 4 episodes and is funny. It is the beginning of a long comedic action packed series. This is the first DVD you want to buy, following the other 3 for the "Tenchi Muyo OVA" Series. Then I Suggest the following series, Tenchi Universe. The Episodes are all UNCUT containing slight language, violence, sexual humor/situations etc. Not Recomended for Children under 13 Years of Age. I highly recomend this series to all people above 13 for Humor and a all around great T.V. Series.
