The best anime ever
6 April 2003 | by (On a Zephyr) – See all my reviews

This is my favourite anime by far. It has absolutely everything; romance, adventure, action, angst, etc, etc. The animation is breathtaking, much better than the likes of DragonBall Z. There is nothing to dislike about the characters; after a while, you love each one of them. But my favourites are Washu and Ryoko, who are definitely the deepest characters out of them all.

10/10 every time. It's a shame that Tenchi in Tokyo had to stray so far.
