Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki / Re: True Tenchi novels licensed by Seven Seas!
« Last post by Fap_fapperson on June 23, 2018, 02:39:03 PM »
I don't know how I hadn't already read it. I don't remember it being part of Tatsumingo's stuff from way back when. Maybe it was and I never noticed.
i wouldnt get any hopes  up the only really interesting thing in the back of the book was how theyfirst tried to get it out as a radio drama called ryoohki dash...

I was interested in how the apparent plan was to have 4-5 of these True Tenchi Muyo novels.

well i wouldnt be suprised now that ova 4 is done if we dont end up getting them after gxp renza ark is done..

im betting gxp renza ark ends up not only with seinas second wedding buy tenchis

Instead of continuing the Tenchi OVAs AIC decided to take the franchise... and give it to hiroshi negishi... someone who had nothing to do with the product... so they could make a family friendly neutered version of OVA 1... let that sink in...

I'd long heard that this was done because Pioneer, AIC's distribution partner for TM!R, demanded it. From what I had been told way back when, Pioneer convinced AIC to go the TV route because the profits were greater for a TV series as OVA series were more expensive to make due to their higher quality. And their proof was the "Mihoshi's Adventure" OVA, which set the groundwork to do both "Tenchi Universe" and "Pretty Sammy" series.

They forced GXP out... a show which he hadn't even really talked about... a show that clearly needed to come out after tenchi OVA 3... 

Yeah, I know that after AIC and Pioneer parted ways, AIC would only agree to do OVA 3 if GXP was done first AND GXP had to be a success. Thankfully, it was. And based on what I had previously been told about Pioneer's objections to doing less profitable OVA series, I think the only reason OVA 3 was even given the green light with conditions was because Pioneer (now Geneon) was out of the picture and VAP came in as distributor to replace them. At least AIC did allow OVA 3 to continue.

But I agree with you, GXP should have come second. AND, it didn't help that Watanabe (aka: Nabeshin) decided to insert himself into the GXP story and change things up. From what I was told, the reason Kajishima-sensei personally directed episode 17, where the GXP crew meet Tenchi and harem, is so Watanabe couldn't do something that would conflict with OVA 3. And, Kajishima-sensei expressed his displeasure with Watanabe by putting his Nabeshin character literally into a doghouse.

But yeah, this is exactly why I've been saying for a long time now that Kadokawa needs to decide "@#$% it, we're gonna take Tenchi out of AIC's hands", and why they need to do so ASAP.  Corporate meddling ends badly for everyone, and it's very clear that AIC is just being a bunch of corporate meddlers at this point.

I don't know that Kodakawa has a say here. In my mind, AIC should be the copyright owner to all things Tenchi since Tenchi originated with them. My understanding is that Kodaka just has a license to do the stuff.

As an aside, it appears that the copyright ownership of the True Tenchi Muyo! novels is now split between Kuroda-sensei and Kajishima-sensei only. In the Japanese copies I have, AIC/Pioneer are also co-copyright owners.

(Did we REALLY need Nobuyuki and Rea's wedding AGAIN?)

I think that was Kajishima-sensei, not AIC. Why? Although I can't prove it, I do believe that OVA 3 was supposed to be longer, but ended up getting nixed. I honestly believe Kajishima-sensei wanted to do the story of Nobuyuki's and Rea's wedding, but was forced to just do some still shots. OVA 4 allowed him to tell that story, but if you weren't versed in the GXP novels or War on Geminar, you were SOL when it came to understanding what the heck was happening in OVA 4.

If I could traverse the multiverse my first priority would be visiting earths where OAV3 was made earlier and longer. Then I'd go see Time Burton's third Batman film.

^ This.  And I'd not only go to those Earths, but I'd also visit the Earths where OAV4's story was handled better (Did we REALLY need Nobuyuki and Rea's wedding AGAIN?), where we got an anime of IF instead of Ai, and then to that one Earth where OAV5 (Which if what Based Fap said is any logical indication then yeah, we're gonna get Tenchi's wedding during that) just started... and I'd stay there until it was over.

And then I'd come back with a t-shirt and possibly some extra merch.  But probably just a t-shirt.

Just saying.  :emot-smugdog:

BTW, in addition to all of the illustrations being there (and the color ones are in color), there's an interview at the back of the book, which I don't think I was ever aware of before. Actually, it is more of a conversation between Kajishima-sensei and Kuroda-sensei. So that was quite interesting to me.

I'll be happy and shocked if I haven't somehow read it already. But now I'm even more excited!

I remember when it seemed as if IF was being made, and how devastated I was when they turned Kajishima away and made Ai.

Fap, the stuff you wrote is the kind of stuff I think about all the time. Then I need to sit down and watch a happy unrelated show to stop the spiraling in my brain. It's so fucking sad. I LOVE TENCHI TOO MUCH!

I remember when OVA3 was supposed to have more episodes. MY TENCHI MEMORY IS MADE OF STEEL! I REMEMBER IT ALL! ALL THE HEARTBREAK!
