Trivia

In "No Need for Swimsuits," Ryoko lists her interests as "sleeping late, drinking early, and taking baths in the morning." This might seem typical of Ryoko, but she's actually using a line taken from folklore of the Fukushima prefecture. According to the story, the son and heir of a rich family "Shosuke-san" lost his fortune because he loved "sleeping till late morning, drinking in the morning and taking a morning bath". See more »

My favorite of the Tenchi Muyo shows.
17 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the first show in the Tenchi series a lot, but was very disappointed by the ending which aired on the Cartoon Network when they showed anime a whole lot. It basically had Tenchi dueling with this arrogant prince and it was very anti-climatic not like a final episode at all. To this day I wonder if there were any episodes after that particular show though I am betting no. This show only lasted 26 episodes and while it was short it played out very well and had a nice storyline to it compared to the first series which was kind of all over the place at times. This story almost had an "Outlaw Star" feel to it as after the initial introduction of the characters they embark on an epic space adventure as they try to clear their names and stop the plans of this one dude. This series had good comedy which is to be expected from a Tenchi series it also had good action and some really good emotional scenes as certain characters appear to meet their end. It also has a nice conclusion to it which is a vast improvement over the first series. They also have the same cast almost with the exception of a new partner from the ditsy blonde galaxy police officer of the first show, a more intelligent member of the force, but still cute and a bit attracted to Tenchi (aren't they all?). So for a nice series that has an "Outlaw Star" feel to it, watch this show the best of the Tenchi shows for me.
