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

For broadcast on Cartoon Network, the girls had swimsuits digitaly painted on them to either hide their nudity or to suggest that they weren't completely nude even when their bodies were covered. Also, any time an alcoholic drink was mentioned, it was dubbed over with "tea". See more »

Goofs

Kari Wahlgren was originally credited as as Kari Walhgreen in the first Dvd volume of OVA 3 that was released by Funimation. This was corrected in the second volume. See more »

Quotes

Ryoko: [Tenchi reaches the surface of the water, then he goes into shock, and turns] Why are you being so shy? You seen me naked before, remember? In side the cave?
Tenchi Masaki: Yeah, I remember. But then you were just a mummy.

User Reviews

A classic anime series
14 December 2000 | by (Keene NH USA) – See all my reviews

"Tenchi Muyo" is one of the best anime OAVs-original animated videos-to debut in the 90s, and like any successful show, has spawned a legion of copycats. The show deals with young Tenchi Misaki, a high school boy who does chores and trains under his grandfather, a Shinto priest. Against his Grandfather's will, young Tenchi opens a sacred shrine. This sets of a chain reaction of events that make Tenchi the host to a group of alien women-Ryoko, feisty space pirate; Ayeka and Sasami, princesses from the planet Jurai; Mihohshi, a ditzy space cop, Washu, a genius and Ryoko's mother; and also Ry-Oh-oki, a cat/rabbit creature which can transform into a spaceship or a young girl. Of course, there's a reason why all these girls arrive, and this forms an interesting subplot. The animation and sound is top-notch-the last being obvious, since this series is partially funded by Pioneer.
