Tenchi Muyo Ryo Ohki DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) - Anime Classics

A not so perfect collection
once again, failed advertisement and such as ruined yet another TEnchi release; there are several Ryo Ohki collections floating around from funimation and other companies, they are all branded as perfect and complete collections yet they only contain the last 1/3 of the series; before release or advertising it as complete collection Funimation should do what it can to get the rights from Pioneer or Geneon or whoever holds the rights to the rest of the series or advertise it as Ryo Ohki 3, so fans dun get suckered into buying an incomplete product again
overall the episode quality is the same, and special features are new from previous release

What A betrayal.
For all of those people out there who loved the first two seasons of the original Tenchi Muyo OAV series and always wanted them to make a third, well unfortunately you got this instead. Tenchi Muyo Ryo Ohki is supposed to the third season of the original OAV but frankly the show is terrible, setting aside the fact the art style dos not fit with the original OAV or the fact that no one from the original OAV was involved in the making of this series (at least to my knowledge), the story revolves mostly around new charters never seen before in the original OAV, and it barely features Ryoko, Ayeka, Sasami or for that matter Ryo-ohki (her names in the freaking title for Christ's sake) there mostly relegated to background Charters in this series, and to top it off it has lame sappy lets all be friend kind of ending that just make you want to barf.
In short I recommend that you do not buy this series unless a super OCD fan of Tenchi and have to have everything Tenchi even then I wouldn't recommend pay more than ten bucks for it.

This is the continuation of Tenchi Muyo: OVA Series DVD
This is the sequel to what is now titled Tenchi Muyo: OVA Series DVD (which was originally titled Tenchi Muyo when released by Pioneer)
A lot of people have complained because: 1. the animation style has been changed (get use to it people this seems to be the style a lot of anime is going to) but I must admit that I do like the old style myself. 2. They did not get back all of the original voice actors (especially Ryoko the space pirate).
But on the good side the story is a true continuation of the original OVA series canon (not to be confused with the various spin off movies or TV version retelling of this story) and this is why I recommend that you get this BECAUSE a lot of things are revealed, like how Tenchi's mother died, plus we find out that Tenchi has an older sister - but MOST import is that we find out just WHO Tenchi really is!!!! You are in for a real DATA OVERLOAD of information which may cause you to watch this a couple of times to absorb it all.
And on the plus side, since this has been out for a couple of years it is priced very low. So if you are a fan of the original Tenchi OVA then do get this, I highly recommend it just for the storyline!!!
