That's kinda cool but wasteful at the same time. I don't remember the OG girls having a whole lotta screentime.

Wasteful how?

Isn't Ai close to the length of a single cour anime? They could get away with selling it on its own.

^ I approve.
Both camps get what they want (more Tenchi).

btw, AMI are the ones who dubbed OVA 3 for Funimation.

How interesting, but the inconsistency of style between Ai and OVA 4 to any prior Tenchi content might confuse some folks if it was pitched as new Muyo.

Selling Ai and OVA 4 together doesn't really make much sense. It would be like selling Universe and OVA 2 together. Selling a standalone series with a piece of a completely unconnected series would just confuse people who buy it. It would make more sense to do an OVA 3 + 4 bluray release like they did with OVA 1 and 2.

From what I've gathered lotta people didn't like the show, giving me the impression that it flopped.

Is this their way of salvaging it?

It did flop in Japan, but who knows how well it will do in the west. If the people dubbing it can at least make their money back then I wouldn't call it a waste. Apparently, they think they can make some money from it because they licensed it.

Oh dear... I've got a lot of things to say about this and most of them are negative (Save for one thing at the end of this post which is a good thing).  First, I don't even know what in Tsunami's holy name they're thinking here.  We get a dub for the terribad anniversary season that made Power Rangers Super Megafarce (See what I did there?) of all things actually look good (And believe me, Megaforce as a whole was BAAAD) before we get OVA 4!?  WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM!  The only way I will even REMOTELY agree with this is if a dub of OVA 4 is also being worked on right now and released at or around the same time.  They don't even have to package Ai and OVA 4's dubs together.  As long as we get both at or around the same time, I'll be okay with this, because then we won't have a complete fail.

Not if we get OVA 4 at the same time.  And they'd better do it, because otherwise it's a legit BATTLESHIP SUNK.

That's kinda cool but wasteful at the same time. I don't remember the OG girls having a whole lotta screentime.

And that's the thing.  The OG girls don't get much screentime at all.  So it's more wasteful than cool... especially when you consider the fact that the episodes are only 5 minutes apiece and that every 5th episode save for the finale is a recap.  Some people tend to forget that detail about 5 minute episodes and recaps every 5th episode... it's effectively the same thing as fine print on a crooked contract.

An ai Tenchi and OVA 4 package deal makes sense to me. can't see them just selling ai tenchi by it's self in the USA?

Ryo-Okay put it the best way...

Selling Ai and OVA 4 together doesn't really make much sense. It would be like selling Universe and OVA 2 together. Selling a standalone series with a piece of a completely unconnected series would just confuse people who buy it. It would make more sense to do an OVA 3 + 4 bluray release like they did with OVA 1 and 2.

Selling them together wouldn't make sense.  The best thing they can do here is to release both at the same time, but on their own.

It might work over here.

It won't.  As soon as the fans find out that the new girls effectively worf the OG girls worse than Sakuya did in Tenchi in Tokyo, they're gonna be throwing @#$% all over the place.  Shin already has a bad enough rep over here, and when they see that we're getting what is effectively TiT V2.0, they're gonna have a field day with it, and it's going to end VERY badly.

WAIT WAIT WAIT... Marshall said that she's voicing Hachiko, but makes no mention of Ryoko?  I guess that's confirmation that we're getting Burchard back...



MM HMM.

I'm okay with this, because you KNOW that means she'll also be on board for OVA 4's dub.

For those wondering, those are Tamaki Kousaka (ToHeart 2) and Omnimon Alter-S (Digimon) in my profile pic and signature image, respectively.

Yes, according to her besties at TF. They broke out a new podcast episode for the occasion. :roll:

P.S.- not planning on watching it.
