Storyline

This film takes a more serious turn from the Tenchi TV series and movies. One day, Tenchi disappears in the forest near his house. Six months later, Ayeka and Ryoko locate Tenchi living in a city, but with a mysterious woman. What's more, Tenchi appears to have aged several years. Whenever Ayeka and Ryoko catch up to him, he disappears into thin air, apparently existing in a fabricated alternate dimension where he has no knowledge of his past. An attempt to rescue Tenchi from the mysterious woman is mounted by Ayeka, Ryoko, Washu and the others. Written by Justin

Tenchi Forever!
7 January 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Tenchi takes a walk in the mountains after Ayeka and Ryoko get into a bitter fight. Mysteriously, however, he all of the sudden disappears. After months of searching everywhere for Tenchi, Ayeka and Ryoko come to Tokyo, and spot him. Only he's older, he has no idea who Ayeka and Ryoko are, and he is with another girl - her name is Haruna. Haruna has provide a soft, comforting, and loving home for Tenchi, yet it distracts him from his memory, which irritates Ayeka, Ryoko, and his friends. Yet Haruna has a mysterious past connection with Tenchi's grandfather, Katsuhito. And what does she want with Tenchi? With the help of scientific genius, Washu, Galaxy Policewomen, Kiyone and Mihoshi, Juri's younger princess, Sasami, and Tenchi's own grandfather, Ryoko and Ayeka must rescue Tenchi from Haruna's manipulative and evil grip before they lose him forever!

Overall, this movie is a far cry from the television series I watch. Not only is it more serious than the television series, but also it includes what America doesn't let you watch - full frontal nudity, sexual situations, etc. etc. Also, Ryoko and Ayeka are actually getting along instead of fighting like they always do in the show, and Mihoshi, the airhead, wasn't being much of a ditz - well, except for one part when she yelled out how realistic the fake Science Academy ID car was! :)

Yet the movie also features different information than the tv series. For ONE, since each Jurian has a tree, like Haruna's Camelia tree, how come Jurian princesses, Ayeka and Sasami, don't have their own trees?

Besides that, I thought the movie was quite good, even though Haruna is the most ANNOYING character in the whole film, especially when Ryoko was trying to get Tenchi back and speaking for Tenchi, instead of letting him speak for himself. She perhaps is even more agrivating than Sakuya (from "Tenchi In Tokyo")! :P Besides the fact how annoying Haruna was, this was a great movie - a must have for all "Tenchi" fans!!! :)
