We can criticize their tastes. Really, some of the things that sell and are successful in Japan...some very good animes don't get as many seasons as they should (or even a second one!) while animes like Loli Princess Pantsu Quest sells a ton on blu-ray and Moe Girl's After School Tea Time and My High School Experience Is Lacking, As Expected are all the rage.

And their tastes in video games? What happened there? Somehow, FF XIII is the type of Final Fantasy games they want these days, consoles are dying in Japan (seriously dying), and iOS is the king in Japan now. It isn't just that it is popular like in the west, Japanese devs are starting to put some very good offerings on iOS with touchscreen controls over more suitable systems, which would serve as a better means to play and experience said games, including the fact that controllers are a better way to play many of these games.


HA, plus one to you good sir. That aside, this series was probably the embodiment of fan service for the older series. If they want to keep their title, a little character redesign was bound to happen. Honestly it could be a lot worse.

Normally I wouldn't care about the character design being more fanservicey in the reboot, but I don't like that nearly all of the clothing designs are very lingerie-looking. Nearly all of them have garter belt-type designs for their leggings. The hands design at the top of the leggings on one of the characters is interesting but still rather creepy.

Perhaps I'm old-fashioned but I don't like seeing characters, especially women, oversexualized. Tenchi is as drab as ever, yet ALL of the women characters--even Sasami--are in lingerie-themed attire. Come on now. -_-

I like the new designs tbh... one thing that really turned me off from the original series is the character design... really if I wanted a romcom harem'ish show back then then there's Ranma and El Hazard. Can't bring myself to watch Tenchi Muyo when I see those old designs.

Tenchi Muyo was probably the series that made me first start loving anime that didn't start with a D and end in ragonballz. So I think fondly of it.

However it hasn't aged well, and I think the new designs don't look bad. So...meh

I don't like the new designs as much as the old ones but they don't look completely terrible (Tenchi's design seems especially bad though, no resemble to any of the older series and that annoys me)

I was excited when I heard about a new Tenchi series and then heard it was gonna be a collection of short several minute episodes so I don't really have high hopes, I think I'll still watch just because and who knows maybe after they finish with this they may want to make a real Tenchi Muyo! series again.

In general I preferred the general art style anime had during the 90's and even some of the stuff from the 80's so I don't really look forward to great designs in new anime.

Lol, it actually was from Toradora. He asked about ThisWasATriumph's avatar not legendzerox's. Thats just who answered the question.

Look at the original comment.

Anyway, I see no issue here. All I do see is the redesigns being more sexualised and updated to look like what anime characters look like nowadays. I wouldn't really expect them to stick to the old style and character designs of anime. It's just the way things go.

That kind of says a lot about the state of modern anime character designs, though.
