Storyline

Tenchi Masaki is a normal high school student in Japan, who spends the summers doing chores around his grandfather's family shrine. One day, Tenchi manages to steal the key to a mysterious cave where an oni (Japanese demon) is said to have been sealed away by his ancester Yoshou, whose sword still stands guard over it. When he enters this cave, he finds that, much to his surprise, the legend is indeed true when the oni's dessicated skeletal form ("mira"--Japanese mummy) comes to life and attacks him. Tenchi flees the cave in a panic, and later returns to high school, taking the hilt--seemingly all that remains of the ancestral sword--with him. At school, Tenchi is again attacked by the oni, whose name is Ryouko, who has now completely revived herself. Tenchi manages to defeat her with the sword's help, but this is only the beginning of a hilarious Japanese romantic comedy OAV (Original Animation Video, the Japanese equivalent of American made-for-video movies) series which has spawned...

The Best.
4 March 2003 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

The OVA series of Tenchi Muyo! is undoubtedly one of the crowning achievements of Japanese animation. It's got whatever you could want: drama, romance, comedy, action, nudity, violence, profanity, stupidity...it's a tour-de-force of all the emotions, pushing all the buttons and trying to get a response.

Of course, fans may be dismayed to have the series stop midway through the story, but fortunately the next OVA series is on its way after all these years of the good TV series and the kinda-passable-maybe-alright-kinda-bad Tenchi in Tokyo series. OK, so TV2 was horrible. But hopefully they will redeem themselves...
