Trivia

Even though this is the second Tenchi Muyo movie it is not considered canon to the OVAs, Tenchi Universe, Tenchi in Tokyo, or the other two Tenchi films by most of the fans. Naoko Hasegawa, one of the writers of the 1st OVA, is the only person involved with the making of Tenchi to consider this film canon. She consider it canon to the 1st OVA and the Mihoshi Speical.

Good, except....
28 December 2004 | by au_law2001See all my reviews

Another Tenchi movie, it is wonderful. The animation is good and so are the voices. Well, at the same time, it is another one not based on the OVA version,(I wonder why they haven't thought of making one based on the OVA series? Why?)and the other movies act like this never happened! But yet it still continues to bring the feel of the TV series, and the comedy as well, and this also gives some background to Yosho's childhood, and it would make think, he seems to be like Tenchi, before he was born and when he was young that is! Anyway, this is a wonderful work, gotta love that Mayuka, and the way she refers to her daddy. Recommended to fans of the series.
