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

The best thing to ever have TENCHI written on it!
7 September 2000 | by (Philly, PA) – See all my reviews

Tenchi Forever! is perhaps the best thing that ever had Tenchi's name on it. For once, the entire Tenchi crew is taken on a trip that explore their emotions and feelings. There is no action, no fighting, and its light on humor, but its supposed to be that way. That's what makes this movie unique from the others. Ryoko and Aeka are forced to work together and Tenchi is finally pushed toward choosing between them. This movie makes me cry every time I see it. The animation is beautiful, although you do find yourself wishing for a glimpse of the Tenchi Muyo! TV series animation, but this is great in its own right. I perfectly wonderful movie. 10 out of 10. Its just great.
