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

Ryoko: Ah, shut up and leave me alone. I couldn't get a wink last night 'cause you kept talking in your sleep like a chipmunk.
Aeka: I do NOT talk like a chipmunk. You're the one who always grinds her teeth. And last night you even farted!
Ryoko: Right. Like princesses never do.

Understandable why some Tenchi fans don't care for this, but...
7 August 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I really like this movie. I had mixed views about it when I first watched it because it was so different than what I was used to. But, I just recently watched it again (over a year after I first watched it) and I REALLY got into. I'm a huge Ryoko fan so it really is her movie and, from my point of view, it was a great way to end the series. Someone commented about how Mihoshi wasn't very ditzy in this, but I was never a big fan of the ditzy Mihoshi. I was totally with Kiyone on this one and found her EXTREMELY annoying. I don't know why they made her that unbearable after the first series. She was pretty cool in the first series. A bit spacy but still capable. They sort of combined her and Kiyone for that one because she has a reputation as a very good Galaxy Police officer (solves more cases than most officers), yet she tends to cause a lot of havoc where she goes so her career has slid because of it. This I liked 'cause she was a bit more complex. All the other versions of her later made me wanna strangle her. But, I digress. I really liked this movie especially upon a second viewing. I like the first movie best and this one a close second. Didn't care that much for the second movie. As the series go, I like the first one the best (I'm rewatching it now). It had the best animation and the much less annoying Mihoshi. The second series, Tenchi Universe, is my second favorite. I wasn't sure about it when it first started 'cause I was confused about why the relationships were different. Once I got used to that, and especially when they got to the Time and Space Adventures, I REALLY got into it and found that pretty funny. A friend of mine, when I explained the series to him, described it as kind of an anime Blackadder because the characters are the same but the settings change for different series. Interesting idea. Tenchi in Tokyo was my least favorite of the three but I still liked it. There were some things, like the girl in Tokyo, that kinda creeped me out though. I have to say, in closing, that this movie moved me emotionally which is something this series hasn't really tried to do before and, to me, they did it very well...if you're a Ryoko fan. If, like one person said earlier, the fight between Ayeka and Ryoko is getting old for you, this is also a good movie 'cause they work together and you see how they respect one another. They're both more mature.

P.S. While not many people mention her, I'm going to, Washu is my second favorite character. "WASHU! YOU'RE THE GREATEST!!" She has some of the best lines.
