Actually start out with the:

Tenchi Muyo OVA series 1st (It's a decent introduction to everything Tenchi, (except if you're a big Kiyoko fan))

Kiyoko, I knew I messed up her name. I know that only the third? group of episodes released of the OVA have the tagline of Ryo Ohki, I just used the name to distinguish it from the others. Plus most sites label the entire OVA as Ryo Ohki now instead of its proper name.

The problems I have with this show are many:
1. The only good girl of the new ones is Momo, the rest basically suck.

2. Why is the story jumping between the school and 700 years ago (Because Ryoko didn't recognize Tenchi, which means it's pre-seal)

The Good:

1. Loved the going home episode, (Sasami, Aeka and Ryoko were great)
2. Aeka's new VA really nailed the role.

For those of who don't know, could someone explain the whole Tenchi universe to us?
I take it some of these characters are from some other past show.


Yaay, somone asked! If you want a simple answer, the only characters shown from the other shows so far are the genius scientist Wasshu who caused this mess apparently, Tenchi himself (though the student teacher might not be the original Tenchi, the person seen with Wasshu and yound Momo definitely was) and Mihoshi/Kaname (Mihoshi and Kaname are that dimension's so character traits are the only thing that's going to be carried over) All the others so far are original characters.

For a more detailed explanation, there are three (now four) anime that make up the main Tenchi Muyo story. They are Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki (OVA with a weird release schedule) Tenchi Universe/Tenchi Tv (An anime based on the OVA that the original creator had little to do with) and the soul sucking abyss that was Tenchi in Tokyo. In all of them, Tenchi Masaki lived an ordinary life in a rural Japanese shrine until his stupid butt did the one thing his grandfather told him not to do and released the space pirate Ryoko(who will probably have about zero screen time in this show, which is a true shame) Ayeka and Sasami, two princesses of the planet Jurai show up soon to try and see what Ryoko is up to.
Pretty soon after that, Mihoshi a space police officer (IMHO, best girl) shows up to arrest Ryoko, and Ryoko's mom (kinda) the genius scientist Washu shows up too. They all decide to live at the shrine because of various circumstances and Tenchi experiences the true suffering of a harem protagonist. There's also Mihoshi's partner Kaname but she's just in Universe (mostly)
Then there are three side series (Duel, Tenchi GXP, and War on Geminar) which will almost certainly have -1000% impact on AI Tenchi.
You can definitely enjoy this series without watching any other related works but if you're interested, here is my list of best to worst in the series
1. Tenchi Muyo Ryo Ohki
2. Tenchi Universe
3. War on Geminar
4. Tenchi GXP
5. Duel (not bad but has nothing to do with anything else)
175830528561. Tenchi in Tokyo


The name is Kiyone not Kaname, and actually Kiyone is also Tenchi's mother's name in the Ryo Ohki universe. In the Universe universe it's Achika.

Also if you are going to add Dual Parallel Troopers. You might as well also add El Hazard. El Hazard was really good though, better than Tenchi for a lot of things I would say.

Finally Tenchi GXP does cross over with Ryo Ohki. Tenchi GXP is personally my favorite of the shows, I thought it was the funniest. War on Geminar / Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari on the other hand only has the connection that the main character Kenshi is Tenchi's half brother, that is about it. It does explain in some novel somewhere why Kenshi was sent to that universe, but I don't really like War on Geminar that much because despite having a somewhat serious story line Kenshi is even a bigger Gary Stu than Kirito in SAO, Kirito at least struggles some of the time, Kenshi just facerolls everything without any problem whatsoever.


The order for the series is :

1. Tenchi Muyo OVA series 1
2. Tenchi Muyo OVA series 2
3. Tenchi Muyo OVA series 3
4. Tenchi Muyo GXP
5. War on Geminar / Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari

As was said, Tenchi Universe, Tenchi in Tokyo, and the 3 Tenchi Movies have nothing to do with the continuity of the series. They are entertaining to watch if you want to however. Finally I am not sure where Ai Tenchi Muyo fits into this continuity. Whether it is something all of its own or whether it fits into the OVA series. If it does fit into the OVA series, it would most likely be after the events of Tenchi Muyo GXP and before War on Geminar. GXP takes place right after / at the same time as OVA series 3. Actually Mihoshi mentions during an episode of OVA series 3 that Amane is coming by to drop off a package, which happens in episode 1 of GXP which is what leads to Sena going on his adventure.

EP 11 was like Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Warehouse 13 with a touch of National Treasure . BTW Beni hiiting that Ball reminds of the scene from FLCL EP 4 where Naota hits the satelite!

Five (really four) episodes at once really is the best way to watch this. I personally could not sit through one four minute episode a day. The Ryoko that he met was probably that universes Ryoko so she had no knowledge of Tenchi because Tenchi doesn't exist in Momo's pocket dimension, apparently. All of this is speculation, of course.
P.S. I second pretty much everything xxJing said, except GXP being better than Geminar, giant mechs ftw!. The only thing I would add is that the reason I didn't talk about the movies is that I have only seen the third one which was so soul crushingly sad to me I tend to avoid discussing it.

Just caught up with this week's episodes and I have to say, even for a rabid fan of the Tenchiverse like myself, this show does not do a good job explaining what is going on and just to throw the key in there was fanservice to the extreme. That is why I have decided to sit patiently and just be WFLHW
cuz I know they're coming eventually and they will be the best part of the show.

I watched the first few episodes and dropped it. It's just marring the memory of a series that I used to like. I see no point in watching it.
