Tenchi The Movie - Tenchi In Love

Tenchi Muyo!

Tenchi Muyo! (天地無用! Tenchi Muyō!), is an anime, light novel, and manga series created by Masaki Kajishima and Hiroki Hayashi about a boy named Tenchi Masaki, which has grown into a larger franchise. Tenchi Muyo! was one of the early successes for AIC, the animation company behind it, which went on to create El-Hazard, Battle Athletes, Oh My Goddess!, Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure and many other anime series.

The original series, Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, is a six episode Original Video Animation (OVA) released in Japan in 1992–93. As its popularity grew, it spurred a seventh episode (also known as the Tenchi Special) and a stand-alone Mihoshi Special. In 1994-95, the second OVA series (episodes 8-13) was released, featuring episodes 8–13. A third OVA series (episodes 14–19) was released from 2003-2005, followed by a special twentieth episode.


The three major series continuities are Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, Tenchi TV, and Shin Tenchi TV. The first series, TM!R, is the original OVA which introduces the core characters. Tenchi TV and Shin Tenchi TV are alternate stories that utilize the same characters, with the addition of Kiyone Makibi. The first of the spin-offs was Tenchi Muyo! TV , in 1995; it is a twenty-six episode TV series that retells the original series differently. The creators of the various series utilze their own particular canon in designing the series, which
