Emilie de Azevedo Brown,
Tenchi Masaki is a normal high school student in Japan, who spends the summers doing chores around his grandfather's family shrine. One day, Tenchi manages to steal the key to a mysterious cave where an oni (Japanese demon) is said to have been sealed away by his ancester Yoshou, whose sword still stands guard over it. When he enters this cave, he finds that, much to his surprise, the legend is indeed true when the oni's dessicated skeletal form ("mira"--Japanese mummy) comes to life and attacks him. Tenchi flees the cave in a panic, and later returns to high school, taking the hilt--seemingly all that remains of the ancestral sword--with him. At school, Tenchi is again attacked by the oni, whose name is Ryouko, who has now completely revived herself. Tenchi manages to defeat her with the sword's help, but this is only the beginning of a hilarious Japanese romantic comedy OAV (Original Animation Video, the Japanese equivalent of American made-for-video movies) series which has spawned...Written by

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.
