My rating as a Robotech/Anime fan
21 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

I cant believe this movie got a lower rating than the 3rd one. If you liked Robotech (except for minmei's singing and the overly sappy parts of overdone cheesy lines) I'm pretty sure you'll appreciate this one. The movie opens up with some action in the beginning and the end for the first 15 minutes and the last 20-30 minutes.

The movie is a bit more serious than the first ova series, art work was really good, the drama could have been a bit more in-depth but I guess they made up for it in the 3rd movie. I think the battle scene could have been drawn out an extra 5 minutes or so but I'm getting used to seeing most of the tenchi series/movies cut the battle scenes really short.

My only nitpick is that tenchi's mom when she was morphed in to jurai warrior should not have been in a white dress with a cute pink bow on her back....cmon this is a jurai warrior/protector here not some cute little maiden in distress. Although they did curb it a little bit with her pissed off look, and her wielding a light sword.

Pretty difficult to find a good anime with a good story line, love triangle, and a bit of action but this one hits the mark.

I gave it a 10
