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...

Trivia

Ryoko name is a common Japanese name, yet the kanji used to write it is far from being a common reading. Translated, Ryoko is "One who summons the spirits of rocks and trees". Ryoko tells Ayeka this fact during their duel in episode 4, when she summons a water elemental. See more »

Goofs

In Tenchi Muyo OVA 3 (which it was made around 2000) the sound effects, when you set your DVD language to Japanese, doesn't match the motions of the character at all. In the English one it does match. See more »

Quotes

Ryoko: [Ryoko grabs Washu] Okay, pipsqueak, whether my body is sagging or not is none of your business! What are visual psychological tactics anyway?
Washu Hakubi: Your sex appeal, of course.
Ryoko: Hey, I'll have you know that my body shape hasn't changed in the past 700 years! What do you think of that, you big fat smart-alleck?
Washu Hakubi: What I think is that's no way to talk to your mother, Ryoko.
Ryoko: Ehh?
Washu Hakubi: That's right. Not did I only create you, but I created Ryo-oki, I created the Soja, I created so many things, really. But I used ...

No Need For Better Anime!!!
17 June 2002 | by (Northern Ireland, UK) – See all my reviews

Tenchi Muyo translates as No Need For Tenchi and is a mixed genre anime series that was on Cartoon Network. It introduces Tenchi Masaki, a curious schoolboy who (against his grandfather's orders) releases a captive demon, a beautiful but destructive female called Ryoko. Deciding not to destroy him but rather live with him, a rough relationship starts to form between them...until other girls start to arrive and fall for him too!!! The girls include space princesses, Ayeka and Sasami, mad genius and greatest scientist in the universe, Washu, and Mihoshi, a ditzy galaxy police officer. When Ayeka and Ryoko's feelings for Tenchi collide the results are either hilarious or horrendous. Monsters appear, space battles are started and even villians are thwarted by our hero Tenchi! It's got a lot in it, light romance, buckets of comedy, action, space battles and for cuteness they added Ryo-Ohki, a cat/rabbit breed that turns into a spaceship!!! Bizarre? You don't know half the story yet...
