That is correct, Ned. Though I would expect the producers of any Tenchi anniversary work to plan to build on that commemorative installment. Instead of something abridged like Ai Tenchi, actually looking into the sheer backlog of Kajishima light novels. Were it up to any of us, a GP reboot steering away from the style and direction of the late 90s films would work in a recap feature similar to what Space Battleship Yamato has been receiving the past decade or so.

Were the reviews of Toei anime episodes even negative, or was the Youtuber just a regular enthusiast who was trying to get people interested?

Sorry to plug my own blog entry, but it has links to other items of interest. https://anime.astronerdboy.com/2021/12/piracy-wars-toei-goes-after-popular-youtube-anime-reviewer.html Basically, the guy Toei "killed" was gung-ho about the stuff he did videos for.

This is the only news I got out of Japan.

・A new anime is coming out. ※Paradise-War prequel
・The heroine of the new work is Tsukiko.
・The novel will be published next year.

The novel is likely a new GXP novel. There have been no announcements about doing anything for the 30th anniversary.

Hmm, I was betting Tsukiko would have been in the end of the GXP novels, considering the implication that her husband was killed by HIMC. But her conspicuous absence from OVA5 guaranteed that a story about her hadn't been told.
Maybe it's not so much a PW "prequel" as it is a related novel that takes place between the end of GXP and beginning of PW.

I saw where a small YouTube channel with some Tenchi review videos that only had screen shots got copyright slammed by a Japanese company. Not sure if they are tied to Toei or not, but main...

I'm sure that was just robo-trawling pixel matching, not someone on a computer spitting out their coffee.  :eng101:

Attacking fans who are devoting their time to promoting their products is both totalitarian, immoral, and idiotic in combination.

The Japanese are going full Big Entertainment with piracy. They are using the "we are losing countless money untold" (which is impossible since you can't lose what you never had) argument and spending TONS of money to try to shut things down globally. And they are partnering up with Western entities to try to do this. And in Japan, they've upped the criminal laws to attack their potential customer base in country. 

Heck, the Japanese are getting so whacked, I saw that the old Urusei Yatsura anime series is apparently being edited to remove "blink and you'll miss it" nods to other shows, Japanese and Western. Apparently, showing characters from another anime for a second in the background is an insane copyright violation or something.

That is very sad, especially as we need Japanese entertainment as a global cultural counterforce to Hollywood dominance.

I agree with the "you cannot lose what you never had" argument, and still find it insane to shut down people doing promotion of their products. All that will happen is that they will have 1/100th of the old total global audience, and very little additional money.

Also, I wonder if they will come after doujinshi creators and fanfiction authors next, given how draconian and irrational they have been so far.

I think this is a line they fear to cross. Even Akamatsu-sensei (Love Hina, Negima!, UQ Holder), who's running for political office to try and stop anime/manga piracy, is pro-doujinshi. But then he used to do some mild-H doujin works back in the day, if I recall correctly. And he had some sort of doujin work at C99.
