28 July 2000 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

Shin Tenchi Muyo is by far the worst of all Tenchi Muyo continuities, and it should never have happened. The characters are turned into total travesties of their former selves, and the whole show starts out as an idiotic Sailor Moon ripoff; at one point a cel phone is being turned into a monster which the characters then have to fight. Sometimes, it is funny, but not enough to make it worth watching. The plot gets more serious and interesting later on, but not enough to compensate for the parts before. And of course there's the artwork: crude and ugly character designs and jerky, cheap animation.
