Good but could have been better
16 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say first off i'm glad they did something different, one part that had annoyed me with tenchi universe was reintroducing the characters all over again (If your new to the series it's not so bad but if you seen OVA then universe, or the other way etc) then you would want the series to move on a bit.

I think why people liked OVA so much is that a lot more time was spent on it then this, however they neglect to take in the fact that OVA is the original and therefore the most important one so it could never be matched as the OVA was still going at the time of this series (it took eight years to complete OVA 3 which was released last year) However while Tokyo has weaker animation it is at least 'orignal' and not a complete rehash like universe. And in universe, the highlight of it was the superb Nagi.

In Tokyo while animation is not high quality I wouldn't say it's strictly poor, only Ayeka and Tenchi look slightly different and Ryoko is taken far more seriously, you can claim this is because their a tad older now. The plot isn't perfect but try watching OVA 3 where Tenchi looks weird, Ryoko is ugly and no sense of the plot whatsoever! However Tokyo has the advantage of Yugi as a villain, Yugi is both powerful and genuinely mysterious. Her eyes are to be frank are quite intimidating to a degree. Its also strange in seeing Katshibso no longer Yosho but fun at the same time to see him flawed.

Its wacky humour but there is still some good dialogue, creative foes, a better Ryoko and a slightly more cocky Ayeka. (I kid not) The bad is it relies on filler episodes a lot but at the same time if your living under rent (like me) then watching 'money money money' is an excellent parody of that situation we all have to endure.

OVA will always have some advantages ie: everyone enjoys the whole Ryoko/washu as the 'mom daughter' relationship with of course Kagato. Universe had a more powerful version of Azaka and Kamadike, ryoko/ayeka flashback view as kids and Nagi as a character that translates to cool. And Tokyo has originality, a better Ryoko and better filler episodes, only there are too much of them. And that is my only argument.

Certinely not perfect but still watchable.
