I have to say that this anime is hilarious as hell. It’s about a boy who ends up releasing a demon named Ryoko out of a cave that is near his family’s shrine. When you hear something like that your probably thinking this one of those feudal era type animes where theirs demons, spirits and a whole lot of killing going on. Your close, but no dice.
Its setting is actually in modern-day Japan, but our hero,Tenchi, in this story lives deep in the woods with his grandfather in the family shrine. Like all teenage boys who do nothing, but do chores, train and go to school wonders why he has to do all this and never get to have any fun like a normal boy his age does. Later, we learn that their was a reason for all of it. Tenchi could have one day been able to live as a normal person if he didn’t wake Ryoko up who, immediately, hunted him down to kill him. Later, though she seems to calm down a bit and becomes friends with Tenchi and makes herself quite comfortable at his house.
Soon, we learn that this anime is going to give us a sci-fi harem twist when Princess Ayeka arrives to find her brother and kill Ryoko. She’s an alien princess who came to planet earth and she says she has been looking for her brother for 700 years. 700 years?! Now you would think that both she and her brother wouldbe dead, but I think her people either age really, really slowly or they like freezing themselves so much. In the beginning, you see Ayeka come out of freezing herself.
After, Ayeka comes in so does Sasami, Washu and Mihoshi. Every girl with him fall in love with him even Ryoko who has daily showdowns with Ayeka. Sasami looks to be the only one who doesn’t like Tenchi like that. For me, I think he’ll, eventually, go for Ryoko because she doesn’t like to show it, but her feelings for Tenchi are really deep. He just can’t get over her rough and wild personality.
I suggest everyone watches it. Its funny, romantic, mysterious and filled with plenty of action. There are a lot of other seasons and movies that go along with this and I’m sure I will be able to talk about these in the future. This a really enjoyable show and I can’t wait to see more.
Thanks for Reading!
