Tenchi Muyo OAV 2
This is by far the best of the Tenchi series, for one simple reason. The characters. Some Tenchi Universe fans will no doubt be disappointed by the absence of Kiyone, but Ryoko, Ayeka, Sasami, Mihoshi, Washu, and Katsuhito all have far more complete backgrounds and personalities in the OAV series than in either of the TV series. These are the characters as they were always meant to be, accept no immitations. Unfortunately, I can't really get into say too much without spoiling the series for you, because the characters' backgrounds are so deeply and intricately tied to it. While at 13.5 (yes, thirteen and a half; you'll understand when you see it) episodes the OAV is only a little more than half the length of Tenchi Universe, it effectively has considerably more content, due to there being very little "filler" (scenes or entire episodes with no purpose other than lengthening the series). Even the one episode that might seem at first to be filler in fact provides some of the most significant character development and background insight of the series, and provides it to a character who most would've expected to be purely comic relief. This just illustrates what a perfect blend of comedy and serious storytelling Tenchi Muyo has. Many have tried to immitate this mix, but if any other series has succeeded, I would greatly appreciate if you would direct me to it.

One thing that you should know going in, though, is that this is not a single OAV. It's 2 OAVs. The 1st OAV, which spans the first 6 episodes, serves to introduce the characters, and revolves around the notorious criminal Kagato. The 7th episode takes place between the two series, and serves as the transition between them, giving us a look at how Tenchi is adapting to life with 5 alien women (and one spaceship that turns into a cat-rabbit hybrid; don't ask). The remaining episodes are the 2nd OAV. Unlike the 1st OAV, the 2nd does not The villain of this part, an old rival of Washu's, is actually fairly incidental to the series. The main focus of these episodes is character development, and setting up for future plotlines. That is why many people complain about the ending of the series: it doesn't have one. The story is still in progress, and most if not all of the elements the 2nd OAV hints at but leaves unresolved, particularly the mysterious Lady Tokimi, a goddess of immense power with an as yet unknown agenda, will be the main focus of the upcoming 3rd Tenchi Muyo OAV series, slated to be released in Japan next year. I know, I know. That's an awfully long gap; 9 years since the 2nd OAV was released. But explaining why it's taken that long would go well outside the bounds of reviewing the series.

Yes, I know, this is a copy-and-paste of the review I posted for OAV 1. Sue me. I already had a review I'd written for the OAVs as a whole, and I didn't feel like breaking it up into two seperate reviews.

Even though the series didn't really come to a complete close, it was quite a humorous series, more so than the first one. I especially liked the last episode "Here Comes Jurai", Misaki is quite a humorous character, I wish there was more of her in the series than just the last episode.

They're really stretching this series out, but I really liked the second OAV. It explored the more neglected characters a bit, furthered the whole Tokimi storyline, and, best of all, went into the past of my favorite Tenchi character, Washu! This is what the second El Hazard OAV should have been like. Unlike that OAV, this one didn't drop much in animation quality from the first, it actually developed the characters, and it built on the elements established in the first (and no annoying "new characters who steal the entire story away from the main cast" stuff, either!) Neat! (If unneccessary..the first one was still better)

Quite disappointing, it was almost as if this entire series put plot and character development on hold

grand story, I do wish they completed it, but alas... I suppose I'll have to just keep getting the viz manga. (They simply must make a Washu special. If they can give that twit Mihoshi, and that prat Sasami one, they can damn well give Washu one!)
