 mainline tenchi novels have been adapted into english.

thanks to ken the paradaise war novels and 17 and 16 are now done. it was a hard task we should all thank him for it.

there still remains 2 ai tenchi novels, the in tokyo novel, the ova 5 novel, the 3 photon novels, and the war on geminar novel.

the hasegawa novels and movie novels were completed too by tenchi forum but they do not wish to publicly release them.

anywho i started this project 7 years ago and never thought it would actually get to this point. horray.
for all my tenchi work go to

I had heard that Tenchiforum stopped translating the Hasegawa novels after the first one because they had lost interest and nobody cared. I know that Yukinojo on TF is still working on machine translations but I don't think they ever translated them properly like Hexagram of Love.

Fantastic! Useless Points to both of you.

Of the ones left, I am personally most interested in the Photon and Geminar novels, because of the possible background information included, especially the stuff about the creation of Aho energy in the Photon books.

Loving the implications of magic so far.

It does look I'll finally be able to write a "Magic" page soon.  Chapter 3 of novel 17 is a monster: super long and packed with information... and often boring as hell. It should have been split into three, like the first three chapters of 16 were. I had to stop at the point where Seina starts figuring out how to use magic.

I hope to finish the book tonight ...and then cancel Speechify before they charge me $140 for a year of service I'd never use regularly. It's a good program, but that free trial trick is a scam. It does do some annoying things with the text though. Pronounces "Seina" as "suh-NAH" and the talking with Nayuta (nice to have a settled name!) uses <> to communicate that they are speaking internally/telepathically... but speechify says "lesser than" and "greater than" almost every time they show on a page.

Yeah, chapter 3 was a bitch! It took me most of a month for that one chapter.
If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway!
