can you say, wow?
22 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

i am one of the biggest tenchi fans since i first started collecting the series. now, i own every series, music video, and movie uncut and subtitled, even the last 13 OVA. this is my favorite of the three movies. the story is really suspenseful, the animation is some of the best i've seen, and the villain is one of my favorites. before any of you see this movie, you'll have to understand the story of the Tenchi series to be able to nod and follow along. overall, this would have to be one of my favorite anime movies.
