So, OVA 4 is going to have seven episodes.   One of the things which I am hoping  from OVA 4 is Sasami going to school. While Sasami is the age where she  legally has to go to school in Japan, her main reason for going to school is for social reasons.

Can't see the pic anymore, DS.

Here Tenchi is with his aunt Minaho Masaki and his new step-mother Rea (her TM!R form and her younger form which iirc is related to War on Geminar).

So the news is that the show has an autumn release, Hidetoshi Takahashi (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=83427) will direct, and Hideki Shirane (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=18588) will do Series Structure and Screenplay with Masaki Kajishima - from what I can read.

Kozuki Serena sings the ending theme “Shake the DiCE”, the single will be released on June 28.

The new pic:

We've got a time frame!  FINALLY!  *Throws a spear at Fall 2016*  GET OVER HERE! :emot-smugdog:

Alright, enough joking.  Obligatory notes, and DARN STRAIGHT that I'm PUMPED right now!  First, it looks like Nabeshin isn't involved, so we don't have to worry about bad stuff happening to the series because of him like what happened to GXP.  And add that to next year being the Tenchi Muyo 25th anniversary (1992 + 25 = 2017, and most series do their anniversary seasons one year before the ACTUAL technical anniversary anyway), which equals we're not only getting the anniversary season we wanted, but also the one we DESERVE.

But yeah.  I hope your bodies are all ready... because mine is!  I'm seriously excited about this!  LET'S GO!  :getin:

I was wondering if that was the younger Rea or not. I find it very interesting that the first OVA4 promo art has Minaho so prominently displayed. This actually feels like one of Kajishima-sensei's doujinshi covers, unless my lack of sleep is getting to me.

^ This.  Especially the part where Kajishima should get to write it completely.  On the other hand, Nabeshin not being involved confirms that AIC did what Saban did to Tzachor when Power Rangers Megaforce (Another terribad anniversary season) flopped - they gave him DAS BOOT and then yelled "And stay out!"  I'm sure that I am NOT alone in being thankful for that, so I'm still sure this will work out.  As long as Takahashi doesn't influence the direction of the story too much, I'm sure we'll be fine.  Keep in mind, Shirane worked on GXP and Geminar and those worked, albeit Geminar moreso than GXP because, well... Nabeshin.

So yeah, hype train NOT derailed.  At least not yet.  And I hope it stays that way.

Sometimes the original creator can really benefit from being on a leash, they need someone to tell them what should be left on the cutting room floor. I quite liked OVA3 but I agree it reminded me of Quentin Tarantino's recent movies, in that it was very self indulgent with the number of new characters.

Well, as far as I remember, basically Nabeshin stated in an interview that he would try to turn over the tables, and spit out Kajishima's massive vision in easily digestible chunks, and in practice turned much of GXP into off-topic unfunny sex & poop gags.

Its most saving grace was that Mister Kajishima's beautiful designs remained, but he was so offended by his creative vision being thoroughly dismantled that he spent years writing over a dozen books about a new canon that reflected his original intentions.

I'm starting to wonder how much actual control Kajishima-sensei has over this thing.

It wouldn't get made without him. I suspect the general story and possibly storyboards may come from Kajishima-sensei, but the actual scripts will be from someone else. This is how it has been since OVA 1, only there, Kajishima-sensei didn't have as much say so. After OVA 1 where Hayashi-sensei and Hasegawa-sensei departed the franchise, Kajishima-sensei pretty much had control (within the bounds of AIC and whomever ponying up the money to pay for the production).

Sometimes the original creator can really benefit from being on a leash, they need someone to tell them what should be left on the cutting room floor. I quite liked OVA3 but I agree it reminded me of Quentin Tarantino's recent movies, in that it was very self indulgent with the number of new characters.

I agree that an original creator can benefit from being on a leash. I think that's why OVA 1 is the best of the lot in terms of structure. Hayashi-sensei forced Kajishima-sensei to change certain things. From what I understand, the Royal tree concept came from Hayashi-sensei (I could be wrong there, but this is what I've long been told). However, I'm also told that Hayshi-sensei didn't want Washu introduced in OVA 1 as there were already too many characters that were introduced there. Supposedly, Kajishima-sensei really fought hard to get Washu in. I suppose by that time, Hayashi was weary and just let him have it. ;-)

In terms of OVA 3, the number of characters there were mainly for Japanese fans. With the Shin Tenchi Muyo novels having many of the characters in them, to say nothing of the doujinshi and the GXP anime, Japanese fans (and fans in the West like myself) wanted to see these characters like Seto and such in OVA 3. The problem with that series is that it isn't structured properly. There's a lot of "day in the life of Tenchi's household" stuff, but too much time is wasted for a six episode series (as originally done, since the 7th episode was approved at the end of OVA 3). And that says nothing of the crime of not letting us see Aeka and Ryoko kick arse, and only showing Sasami's battle as a terrible flashback.

If OVA 4 follows the -If- doujinshi for some of its stories, then the number of characters are going to be through the roof. ;-)

Huh.  So that's why WoG freakin' rocked and GXP was kinda meh.

Yeah.  Nabeshin was involved in some capacity, which messed up certain elements of the story.  It's the reason why Kajishima did the GXP novels recently.  Antvasima can tell you more about it, he knows what happened there moreso than I do.

That's also why Kajishima-sensei directed episode 17 of GXP. He had to make sure that the episode stayed pure so it wouldn't conflict with OVA 3, which was being released after GXP, but was set prior to GXP. (Rumor has it that the NB character is shown in the doghouse as a not so subtle joke of how Kajishima-sensei was displeased with the changed Nabeshin made to his story, including the insertion of NB).

Well, as far as I remember, basically Nabeshin stated in an interview that he would try to turn over the tables, and spit out Kajishima's massive vision in easily digestible chunks, and in practice turned much of GXP into off-topic unfunny sex & poop gags.

Its most saving grace was that Mister Kajishima's beautiful designs remained, but he was so offended by his creative vision being thoroughly dismantled that he spent years writing over a dozen books about a new canon that reflected his original intentions.

Which is why I'd love to see GXP get a new series based off of the light novels. I kinda doubt that happens since I don't get the sense that Kajishima-sensei wants that to happen (ditto his Shin Tenchi Muyo novels).

Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on May 09, 2016, 03:08:32 PM
While OVA 4 is likely going to have 7 epsiodes,  I do like the ideal of OVA 4 being a sequel to the Ryo-Ohki series.  As a sequel, OVA 4 can have a couple of episodes which focus primary on Mihoshi's parents Nakita and Mitoto and Funaho and Misaki visiting the Earth. The two separate episodes are not true fillers.  They can help to describe the series' arc and plot as well as include some humor. The exact number of episodes for OVA 4 as a sequel can be 13. OVA 4 can take place after the events of GXP.

I will have to wait until fall 2016 or possibility another date. Like i have stated before,  I am stlll only expecting Sasami to be going to school. Her main reason for going to school is for social reasons.  A  tentative name for Sasami's   best friend can be Misao Amano.

Stoked that we finally have dates!  Also, something I noticed is that volume 4 releases in time for the exact timeframe of the Tenchi Muyo 25th Anniversary in 2017.

-OVA 1 episode 1.  September 1992.  (Someone know the exact date?)
-OVA 4 volume 4.  August 30, 2017.

Knew that this was going to be an anniversary season!  It is a bit of a wait until volume 1, but I betcha the timing was so that OVA 4 was the big anniversary season.  Smart move by AIC and Kajishima, and I applaud them for it.  All I've got to say about November is, well... :getin:

Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on July 11, 2016, 03:23:00 PM
I do wonder who will be  the main antagonists for OVA 4.  One candidate for one of the main antagonists is King Azusa Masaki Jurai.  At the end of TM episode, King Azusa was opposed to Tenchi being Ayeaka ,and Sasami's husband. Likely after learning the truth of Tenchi being a kami,  Azusa will have to change his mind.  Likely becoming Tenchi's father-in-law, Azusa's role as antagonist is limited.  Azusa will only set up up some conditions which Tenchi has to agreed to, in order to allow Tenchi to married Sasami and Ayeka.  One of the possible conditions for Tenchi is for naming Ayeka's and his first son after Azusa's father Kazuki.  If OVA 4 has 13 episodes, one episode can show how Azusa is able to realized that Tenchi is going to be a great hushand to Ayeka and Sasami.  Oddly, one of the reasons for Azusa's change of heart and mind can be a result of one or both of his wives becoming pregnant.

I hope that OVA 4 is its own series, not the prequel to TENCHI MUYO: WAR ON GEMINAR.   One of the best ways for ending OVA 4 is a special episode which focuses on Lady Seto forcing Tenchi into a group wedding ceremony. 

I do want to expect learning the identities of Mihoshi's paternal grandparents, and Nakita meeting Tenchi. Still, the only thing which I have come to expect from OVA 4 is Sasami going to school for social reasons.

Like a lot of anime projects these days, I imagine they're only going to dedicate a toe in the water, and only keep going on as long as it pays or it's finished.  The days of extended OAVs in the pipeline are long gone.

You may see it cancelled as early as the second episode if sales just don't pan out.  Remember, Ai Tenchi simply did not have the sales numbers and extra TV runs (licensing money) did not happen, so they aren't sure of the strength of this series.

Wasn't the series supposed to run for 7 episodes? Perhaps they will release 3 of the collections as 2 episodes, and 1 as 1 episode? However, if all of the them cost the same, this may be unlikely.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: AstroNerdBoy on July 15, 2016, 11:21:06 PM
We are actually quite lucky to get four episodes. Any more, anime is used as an advertisement for an existing manga or light novel series (or as in the case of Macross Delta, an advertisement to sell music CDs) with the side bonus that fans then buy said advertisement on BD/DVD for outrageous prices.

The Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki OVA series isn't advertising anything except itself. I'm just hoping that sales are good enough to get AIC to allow more episodes. But obviously, Kajishima-sensei can't count on that, so if there is any overarching story, it will be contained within four episodes is what I'd guess.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on July 19, 2016, 04:34:39 PM
For a lot of anime series, the typical number of episodes is 26.  So far, the total number of episodes for OVA 4 announced are 4.  It is starting to look like that OVA 4 is likely the last series for the Tenchi Muyo: Ryo-Ohki series. 

For the future of the Tenchi Muyo mulitiverse,  I can expect more series.  How many is up to AIC and Kajishima.  I do want a sequel for the TM: WAR ON GEMINAR series.  Another ideal for a sequel is focus on one of Tenchi's own children.  A propose title for the series is TENCHI MUYO! THE NEXT GENERATION.

So with only 4 eps, could there be an expectation for longer eps?  Like around an hour each?  Although no matter how many eps, I just hope that there is a complete story (or epilogue/whatever it turns out to be) told to us.  Nothing worse for fans than a major cliffhanger at the end *cough*(half-life 2 ep2)*cough*

Ah, didn't know this.  Bummer.  But again, as long it's a complete thought being told, I'd be ultimately cool with it.

If you are talking Japanese voices, Ayeka's original VA retired before Ai Tenchi came out, Yosho's passed away a while back, and Mihoshi's passed away earlier this year. Though I doubt the others will shirk away from this. VA's over there are held in a higher regard than over here.

If you're talking about English voices  :staredog:

(http://tenchimuyo4th.com/core_sys/images/main/top/t_main_bg0810.jpg)

Sasami had her first period in the eighth episode.  The first clues of her first period were barely noticeable.  One of the clues was the cake which Tenchi's Aunt Kasumi had brought with her to the Masaki Residence. Tenchi had thought that the cake was for another reason.   Sasami is likely going through the equivalent of a growth spurt. 

For the show, I am only expecting Tenchi to be a ronin and Sasami going to school.  If Sasami is going to school, Noike has likely taking over fixing lunch for the others.  I hope that Mihoshi's has return to her normal Ryo-Ohki self.

One of the candidates for the series' main villain is Tarant Shrank.  Tarant Shrank had tried to kidnapped Siena Yamada's family. Tenchi and the gang had been able to stop Shrank.

Tenchi definitely looks taller.  He used to be just even or slightly under with Ayeka and Ryoko.  I don't remember OAV3, perhaps just slightly taller?

Whether that carries over to the anime permanently...

i know it's a minor nit-pick, but i hope the noses are more like in the artstyle of k-sensei's.  the style of noses characters have along with the intensity of the eyes that the female characters have when angry (like in OVA3) is very indicative of k-sensei's art-style.

On the "character" page, Tenchi looks to be just above Ayeka & just under Ryoko (tho kinda hard to tell with her hair).

The characters are shown in full profile, but Tenchi is wearing sandals in the drawings while Ryoko & Ayeka are wearing slippers/socks.  Not sure if that'll be an actual factor, but just wanted to point it out.

Not a fan of the poster, they look so... lifeless.  What are they looking at?  They are spaced out and zonked.  Are they on drugs?  It's like an art student drew wooden puppets and tacked on faces.  At all the old group posters, they were looking at Tenchi or had some movement to draw the eye.  Compare the above to this screenshot:

Notice how Ryo-ohki's reaction comprasts to theirs.  Here is an old 1993 Kajishima one:
(https://s16.postimg.org/diskmgwtd/Original.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/diskmgwtd/)

Notice how much livelier they are in b/w than that OAV4 color poster, asymetrical and again the Ryo-ohki ship to draw the eye.  Or this MK poster for OAV1:
(https://s22.postimg.org/tm6vrfmbx/tumblr_o0e1j88h_CU1rxlk68o1_1280.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/tm6vrfmbx/)

Just much better.

The screenshots are okay.  OAV3-esque, some closeups are nice, not a big fan of the side profiles and pointed chins but that's been MK's evolving style and the current character designer is just imitating that.  Doesn't have his noses right though.

My opinion on the new look?  I love it.  It's the same way I felt about the OVA 3 changes.  They changed the art style to match the current times, but they didn't change the overall appearance of the characters.  Completely different from what Ai did and that's "let's change everything because we don't care about what it's supposed to be".  It looks like AIC listened and I am breathing a sigh of relief for that.

And as the good soviet doctor said, this is definitely looking like it will focus on the GXP novel characters and so forth.  Do keep in mind, Kajishima DID say that OVA 5 is likely going to be a thing, so don't load the panic baskets just yet.  Nothing is actually lost yet... in fact, we have what we wanted found again if you ask me.  :)

I always forget about Yosho marrying Kasumi on Earth. If he hadn't, we wouldn't have Nobuyuki. ;-)

However, Minaho is Yosho's and Airi's child. She was conceived prior to Ryoko's attack, only Airi put the unborn Minaho into stasis for a while due to political issues and Yosho having disappeared while pursuing Ryoko after Ryoko attacked Jurai.

Man, I really hope this sells well. I so want more than four episodes.

Just some speculation, but based on the 3 earth Masakis appearing already back in 2003 (if not earlier)... and knowing that OAV3 was cut short, there's a strong possibility these will be the missing OAV3 episodes MK had in mind.

While I check out the Kiyone's funeral post, I have come across two images from the Kamidake Onsen issue 2 doujin by Kajishima.  The female who is left of Minaho in the second image looks a  like the new OVA4 character Mizuko Misaki.   The only problem is the fact that Mizuko Misaki has green eyes.   Yet,  Mizuko Mizaki and the girl on Minaho's left have the same color hair as well as the same hairstyle. The green eyes seem to be the only change in Mizuko's appearance.  Therefore, the unknown female on Minaho's left in the second image is  Mizuko Misaki.  Mizuko's image is the third.

Taro's mother is the blonde hair female in image 2.

Requesting a brofist (Or knuckle bump, pound it, or whatever term you use for it), because this right here is EXACTLY how I feel.  And OVA 4 is the 25th anniversary series for Tenchi to boot which as I said before gives it a HUGE amount of additional bonus points.

I mean, ever since the initial announcement and even now, I seriously cannot put how stoked I am for OVA 4 to finally be a thing into words, anniversary season notwithstanding.  I do expect episode 4 to have something special given that it releases in the exact month of the Tenchi Muyo 25th, and keep in mind, Kajishima said that OVA 5 is likely as well.  :)

I wouldn't count on OAV5 until seeing OAV4 sales.

That without question is a VERY good point - Kajishima said that there is enough material for OVA 5 to happen, but that all depends on if AIC will decide to keep it going.  And that of course depends on sales.

The only problem with that is, it could end up backfiring because, you know, some fans may still have that bad taste in their mouth from Ai (Even in Japan we saw how it did and it wasn't good), and that may affect the success of OVA 4 a bit in terms of sales.  That's what worries me moreso than anything else in this situation.  We've got OVA 4, the fans are all getting what they wanted (Us included of course)... but if Ai left a bad enough impression on more fans in Japan which could lead to potential sales for OVA 4 than we think, we could be in BIG trouble.

Now with graphics:

I still can't tell who the distributor is.

I'm also unable to tell.  I don't recognize that logo in the upper right corner at all.  Can anyone who recognizes it come in and do a ONE TWO MIC CHECK! for us?  :)

At first, it seems that Tenchi is getting another fiancee.  In the last picture, I am wondering if Minami Kuramitsu had inherited Washu's ability to change her age and appearance. Since Minami is in the series, she is aware of Washu being her grandmother and one of the Three Chousin Sisters.  I have to  find out

Yes, Yosho's friend Kanemitsu Hirata's baby, whom Minaho was using as a sort of shield so that Seto wouldn't try to set her up, turned out to be a girl. She seems to like Seina. The real question is: is Seina going to marry that freaking baby?!?!?

My guess/hope is that Tenchi doesn't get anymore wives. His group is perfect the way it is. Also, IS SEINA GOING TO MARRY THAT FREAKING BABY!?!?

Honestly, I think Tenchi's Harem has gotten big enough as it is.  Besides, Minaho strikes me as the kind of girl who has a very low tolerance for BS.  She would not like being part of the mess that is Tenchi's Harem, even if Noike is already riding herd on the worst offenders.

Still on the fence with the art and not a fan of the modern music (but I guess it's what modern japan likes?), right now it lacks the classicness of OAV1/2 themes.

But Tokimi is in the household, and there seems to be a focus on the main characters.  Nice.

Yeah, the music does seem a bit of an odd choice.  Part of me still thought that they would've chosen more traditional music (or just instrumentals with some background vocals like in the OVA1 opening).

I also think that it would have been better if the music had just been instrumental, or they had used the classic versions. I do not like the style of the singer much, especially not the ending song.

After that they'll be screening ova 1.

 Judging by  the 2nd trailer, the story arc is gonna be focused on Juraian politics. Hopefully we'll get some character development from Tenchi's extended family, 'cause the plot doesn't seem too interesting IMHO.

I understand that.  But given we've got 4 episodes here and this trailer is for episode 1, I think we'll only see that for 2 episodes at most.  That, I wouldn't get too worried about.  And think of it this way... after the way OVA 3 ended, combined with the shorter episode count for OVA 4, I also wouldn't get too worried about a villain like Kagato, Dr Clay, or Z showing up.  This one's going to be character development based through and through and that's a good thing at this point TBH.

On another note... given that OVA 4 Episode 4 falls right smack near the Tenchi 25th Anniversary (Episode 4 releases August 30, 2017, anniversary date is September 25, 2017), I'm going to make a prediction, albeit a VERY bold one.  I think that Tenchi will share his first kiss with one of the main girls in OVA 4's final episode at least.  (The kiss with Misaki notwithstanding of course, given she's not part of the harem.)  Which of the girls that ends up being and / or if he shares such emotions with more than one of course remains to be seen.

...I'm serious.  I think that it's finally going to happen.  Think about it.  25 years is long enough of a wait for the fans in terms of the canonical timeline to find out such information (Even though we already know that he gets married to all of the girls - the thing here is we don't know exactly how it happens), and OVA 4 is going to be running during most of the anniversary year.  Mark my words, it's going to happen.  I personally think that it's gonna be fun to predict who he shares that love with first... and even more fun when the reveal happens and how those who guessed wrong react to it.  *Rubs his hands together and grins evilly, getting ready for the betting pool*

^ This... unfortunately.  While I'm flatout surprised that they didn't even get Crunchyroll or another licensed anime streaming service on board to provide day 1 subs, I can also understand given that Ai Tenchi Muyo bombed in Japan in terms of ratings and sales and therefore none of the licensees are likely even considering Tenchi right now, which given that we're finally getting OVA 4 is a darned shame.  It's a similar situation as to why Saban went with adapting Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger into Power Rangers Dino Charge instead of doing something with Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.  Keep in mind, Go-Busters also bombed in terms of not only ratings and sales, but also its toyline which also bombed.

Comparison involving another franchise, I know, but had to point it out.  It's business and licensing 101.  Stinks more often than not when stuff like this happens (Especially with OVA 4), but we're forced to deal with it unfortunately and in this case you can blame Ai not succeeding for that.  OVA 4 is suffering in the west from the fact that like Go-Busters, the licensees don't want anything to do with Ai, and that led to Tenchi as a whole being overlooked... and again, that's a darned shame.

The fanbase in Japan loves it = get out those signs, because they have officially bounced back from Ai's failure and we're TRULY back in business.  You KNOW which signs I'm talking about... can we PLEASE get a "YES!" chant started while we're at it?  ;)

If I knew someone who was interested in the Ryo-Ohki series,  I will advised them to start out with OVA 1, OVA 2 and Universe. Then follow up with  Tenchi in Tokyo,OVA 3, and OVA 4.

It's as bad as AIC buying fake positive reviews for Ai Tenchi before it's Vol1 release.

Sorry man, but combined with the Good Doctor saying that the fans over in Japan from what he heard liked it... I rest my case.  Amazon reviews can't be trusted in such circumstances, especially in regards to Tenchi.  I would have thought the situation with Ai that Jib pointed out as shown above, coupled with the negative reviews that as Jib also pointed out appeared BEFORE THE EPISODE EVEN RELEASED, taught us better for the most part.  It certainly taught me.  Now, if you were basing things off blogs (Which I have a gut feeling that's what Soviet is doing)... different story.

...seriously though, Seina's in this episode?  Some folks can't see the episode yet, so... yeah.  That might also be a factor here.  We don't know some things right now.  Not pointing fingers or anything like that.

(But calling it now, betcha that the premature negative reviews are from salty fans who want the franchise dead after Ai.  Good luck with that when AIC actually got their butts in gear and got things back on track.  Devoted fans such as ourselves are gonna beat the torch mobs this time.)

There are several video hosting sites that I watch anime from. I'll notify everyone if I see the raw or a fansub uploaded  on to any of these sites.

Due to the fact that the OVAs are straight to DVD/Blu-ray, the translation might be pretty quick. Daily Life With Monster Girls' OVA episode was subbed and uploaded  a few days after it was released officially.

The only reason Daily Life With Monster Girls doesn't have a second season yet is because a new chapter comes out every other month, and the first season adapted two chapters per episode.

Besides, there have been a lot of older anime getting new seasons produced/announced the last couple of years. Full Metal Panic (can't wait for this!), FLCL, Digimon, Berserk, Sailor Moon, Dragonball got a new show after 18 years, more Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt has been teased by Gainax, and a new season for Code Geass was just announced. A LOT of older anime fans are happy right now!

Although I may be inaccurate as English is not my first language, Tenchi was surprised because Minaho said she would monopolize her sister's cute tenchi-chan.
And also, he is surprised because she asked him to 'hang out' with her. But unfortunately the first episode ends in that scene.

TOO SHORT! I loved it! Don't know what they're saying, but I can't wait to find out! I really hope Minaho is the 'villain' this season, as in I hope she is the chaotic element that finally brings her nephew and his brides-to-be together, as opposed to a new love interest for Tenchi.

Are Mihoshi and Tokimi new besties!? OMG YES! YES! YES! That's hilarious! I love it. AND RYO-OHKI WAS SO CUTE! And of course Ryoko immediately has to 'butt-monkey', but later on she seems to smile a lot and hang out with Aeka! Yay!

Can't wait to know what's happening since it's mostly conversations. I'm still hype.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: Tenchi Ryu on December 04, 2016, 04:58:03 AM
It was aight....




Except it was more than aight...it was fucking fantastic!!!!

 :noah: :noah: :noah:


Incredible...that's all I can say to rate this episode. The pictures we've been staring at the past few months don't do this justice, seeing this in motion, this art is just beautiful. Kaji put some pennies in this project.


SPOILERS REVIEW WARNING below


First off, major kudos for Kaji learning his lesson from OVA 3, NO RECAPS!! Excellent job not wasting an episode and getting straight to the new shit. The fans remember this stuff, no need to baby us like last time, so I really appreciated that. Starts off as a typical day with Tenchi and the family. One thing that caught my eye immediately, and later in the episode is this new dynamic we have here with the girls, specifically Ryoko and Ayeka. This is no doubt my absolute favorite part of this series now. We aren't seeing girls acting like cats in heat for Tenchi's attention, we have a real family here now. Watching Ryoko and Ayeka have conversation like they're actually sisters....tears came down my eyes yall. This is what I've waited for, seeing this bond between his girls like this. It blew my mind at them enjoying each other's company...and when they were able to hold themselves back from jumping on Minaho when she hugged Tenchi...Dear god yes :noah: GROWTH ladies and gentle...character development :noah: FUTURE  :neg:

So to jump back a bit, really enjoyed Seina being talked about with Airi and Tennyo, makes me wonder if we'll see him at some point. It was nice seeing his new harem girl animated too, ringo/apple I think was her name. Anyway, Mikami...mikami mikami  :getin: I guess she like fuck it at this point, and ready to do all kinds of nasty shit to Seina that even had Tennyo blush. Lucky bastard. So it basically seems we have another group trying to be all up in Tenchi's space with Minaho and her gang, those three being the ones I remember seeing at Kiyone's funeral. So they are new to us but not new to Tenchi.

It's really awesome seeing Tokimi established in the home now, and its adorable seeing Mihoshi cling to her like that while Tokimi just takes it in stride, so damn cute. It seems Noike is a little bit more chill around the household, which makes a lot of sense seeing how much more mature Ryoko and Ayeka seem to be, takes a huge burden off of Noike having to be house mother. Once again, growth...love it. At the end, it seems Minaho is comparing Tenchi to Kiyone and Tennyo, and she seems to be very impressed with his lifestyle as the camera pans over Tenchi's beautiful fields he's done by hand. Dude's a hard worker and she seems to appreciate it. So its with this that if I had to guess, the shocking ending is her officially turning in her resume to join the harem, especially with Tenchi blushing and being confused as fuck. And we heard the bongs and that samurai dude at the end, yall know what that mean when it comes to Tenchi shit. Some romantic chaos about to take place  :emot-smugdog: Probably not expecting this from his own aunt, but we all know how Juraians get down at this point. If I remember correctly, the person she was suppose to marry turned out to be a girl, so she single and ready to mingle Tenchi-chan  :chord: Do ya thang playa  :chord:


9.5 outta 10, just wish it was longer. Otherwise, PERFECT re-entrance back into the Tenchi fans lives. Kaji still got it and I'm ready for more.

 :bravo:

Thank you Google translate for coming in the clutch. (Seriously yall, download and use this apps, works fantastic. It can listen to them talk and translate pretty damn well. Works best if you pause and do it piece by piece).


Yep...Even crazier. Apparently Minaho is not only after Tenchi, she's planning to put a end to this harem shit, and wants him solely to herself. So you're definitely right Y_anthony, she's no doubt the "villain" of this OVA.

A very rough google translation has her saying "Kiyone's prideful and cute son...I have decided....you will be going out with me"

I can see Tenchi in the end denying her to stay with the girls, well going by the doujins that's what should happen anyway.

I did seen the first episode.  While it was too short,  I did like OVA 4. OVA 4 is more like a movie. 

The first episode did disclosed the location of the Masaki Family Shrine.  The Shrine is located closer to Kurashiki than I had thought.  The shrine seems to be located either  in  Soja City, Mabi Ward of Kurashiki City, or Yakage.  Assuming that the Masaki Family Shrine is located in a nature preserve,  the nature preserve can be located in Yakage and Soja City.

Takahashi City is still on my list of possible places for the location of the Masaki Family Shrine. If Takahashi City is one of the two places where the Shrine is located, the nature preserve should be located in both  Takahashi City and Soja City.   From the scene where the location was disclosed, Soja City is one of the places where the nature preserve is located.

I am waiting for the fansub. I know basically what the episode is about. I have read descriptions and seen screenshots but I want the full effect when I watch it. I even went back and watched all of OVA 1,2, and 3 in subtitles so it would seem more cohesive for me.  Honestly it is the first time I have done that and I loved it! It really upped my enjoyment of OVA 3 especially because I missed Ryoko's dub voice the first time I watched it. (Also I watched all of GXP and that helped tremendously. I was actually happy to see Seto and Airi.)

Seems pretty good.
Ryoko and Ayeka all buddy buddy...

I'm in the middle of re-watching Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure and War on Geminar. No need to re-watch the OVAs since I did that earlier this year, as well as re-watch GXP.

I had almost forgotten how much I liked all the Tenchi related stuff and spinoffs. I have several favorite characters from each show: Yayoi, Mitsuki Sanada, Ken Sanada Flora, Lashara, Aura, Mexiah and Amane Kaunaq, if you're curious about my tastes. I like certain parts of the stories, and there's a lot of great humor.

But I feel that each show suffered from different problems. Kenshi for example is so OP that he became almost boring. If it wasn't for the several great "fish out of water" moments, he's not only forgettable but also overshadows everyone else. By far, GXP has the most filler, and overall baring some solid episodes, it's pretty mediocre.

With GXP, the problem was, I think, that a lot of Kajshima's ideas, like for example, the Seto Scouts, Kiriko's special training, Ryoko's background, Neeju's true personality and powers, just to name a few things, were cut out or ignored because the director Nabeshin wanted to tell jokes instead.

Dual has the best balance between story and characters IMHO.

I can't wait to see what ova 4 adds to Tenchi's story. Someone please sub it quickly!

Speculation time

Fuck it, I'm calling it now. Kiyone is still alive. The only person who knows it is Tennyo.

Kiyone often pretends to be Tennyo, just like they did before.

Kiyone is going to be forced to come out to stop Minaho.

There's no way they just keep fucking up how her hair should look. Tennyo has multiple small bangs and Kiyone only has the single one in the middle. orviceversaidontfuckinknow...

Speculation time

Fuck it, I'm calling it now. Kiyone is still alive. The only person who knows it is Tennyo.

Kiyone often pretends to be Tennyo, just like they did before.

Kiyone is going to be forced to come out to stop Minaho.

There's no way they just keep fucking up how her hair should look. Tennyo has multiple small bangs and Kiyone only has the single one in the middle. orviceversaidontfuckinknow...

You know... I AGREE.  Not only do the points make sense, but given what Minaho's trying to do and we know that Tenchi ends up with the main girls anyway, he's gonna need a "Get Out of Jail Free" card here, and I don't see any other such means for him to get out of this without the others getting all up in Minaho's Kool Aid and causing more problems than there need to be.

TLDR Yup, my guess is also that Kiyone's still alive and she's gonna be Tenchi's "Get Out of Jail Free" card, that way he can buy Park Place AND Boardwalk before Minaho does (As in, reach the ending we know is going to happen).  :emot-smugdog:

I think one of the biggest red flags for this is her being in the ending credits. Who puts a long dead character in the ending? Unless she is just a major focus.

I hope this isn't the case but it very well could be. The whole sister mother twist was a lot the last season. I loved Kiyone's scenes in the last episode of OVA 3 tho.

I am glad that most of us have agreed, Minaho probably isnt sticking around. Maybe when Kajishima saw the fan reaction to Noike, he thought a perfect antagonist would be a possible love interest? (Or its been planned forever.) Either way... Defining the harem or some sort of romance from Tenchi would be amazing.

I don't know. Switching places in one thing, but she would have no reason to pretend would she? Yeah, the entire Misaki family needs to protect the secret of their alien heritage from outsiders. But Tenchi's dad didn't pretend to be dead, and he's over 200 years old isn't he?

I thought Noike was well-liked by the Japanese fan base? It's the North American fans who didn't like her, because she seemed to show up out of the blue and upstage the other girls. What made things worse is that Noike was also seen as a replacement for Kiyone from the Tenchi Universe continuity. Even though that character wasn't created by Kajishima and she has no connection to the main timeline whatsoever. OVA 3 has it's problems, but the lack of access to all the extra Tenchi related material made many American Tenchi fans judge Noike unfairly IMHO.

I can see a Kiyone surprise revival happening to be completely honest.

Remember she has a fucked up sense of humor so this could have been the ultimate prank to pretend she was dead all them years then just show up.

The dying in her sleep thing still just seems so suspect. Even without her own ship, or GP enhancements....its just too random. And if she died in her sleep, how did she know to write a post-death script specifically to be told to Tenchi? As if she knew she was gonna die.

I think what I'm gonna like about this OVA is that compared to the past where the girls would fight over it, they'd just accept it if Minaho joined the harem. I think we're gonna finally see Tenchi make some choices as far as what he wants romantically for once.

Yep. I agree. I like the lore but I hope this is a more contained story for that reason.

Remember she has a fucked up sense of humor so this could have been the ultimate prank to pretend she was dead all them years then just show up.

That is just taking it a bit to far tho. Not only for her but for anyone who is an accomplice.

I don't think that will be the case until Tenchi shows them some sort of reciprocation of their affections. I think for some of the girls they have bonded (some might know the possibility for multiple marriage exists.) The issue isn't sharing but being separated from Tenchi completely. During the wedding scene they weren't to happy about Airi hugging on Tenchi. Jealousy is pretty natural if you feel insecure in your relationship.

 :speculate:

My predictions:

IF there is little to no combat happening this season, Minaho could be the "antagonist". Driving the group together into something more like what we have seen in the 'If' series. (at least starting that process...)

Also because of the OVA 4 announcement Kajishima did I feel like a portion could focus on Rea and mess she is about to get into (with joining the ranks of the women who basically run the universe.) This makes sense considering War on Geminar's 'twist' and Tokimi's interest in their wedding at the end of OVA 3.

Basically I think we are gonna see a lot of universe building or tying together in this. To keep this about Tenchi (and with little/no combat,) its going to have to be some sort of major character development.

. . .or maybe that is just wishful thinking.

OVA 4 takes place around the time of Rea's and Nobuyuki's wedding.  Minaho may be the antagonist in the series.  I had theorized that Minaho is  married. Yet in episode one, Minaho seem to have chosen to remain single. If Minaho is married, her spouse can be a woman.  There is a slight chance that Minaho has  a sister-wife or two.  At the moment,  I will believe that Minaho is single until the next two episodes.

After checking out that scan about Minaho I can see what you mean.
She is obviously more connected with the three girls at the beginning then I previously thought. Knowing Seto... who knows what she wound up in.

That's my fear! There is an older doujin with an image of Tenchi, some of his wives, and Minaho that has always concerned me. I hope my theory about Minaho being the antagonist is correct, but I'm not holding my breath.  I don't want more wives for Tenchi! I want more romance with the girls he has! Quality over quantity!

Most likely she wont be with Tenchi since she also asks for kenshi and was turned down. Plus with the GXP novels pushing her towards Seina its probably not gonna happen 
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: GP cadet 87 on December 07, 2016, 12:45:26 AM
Yeah, wasn't Minaho betrothed to someone else in the novels, but became one of Seina's suitors later once the original betrothal fell though? Considering that Airi stuck her tongue down her grandson's throat in front of her husband in OVA 3 maybe Minaho's just messing with him.

With this family, it's hard to tell where the boundaries are with relationships, if there are any at all.

Post by: Y_Anthony_Who on December 07, 2016, 03:29:45 AM
That was my understanding too! The baby turned out to be a girl, and I thought she moved on to Seina, but they mention Seina's name so much in this new episode that now I'm uncertain how much time has passed between episode 19 and episode +1!!! Like, was it several GXP novels worth all of the sudden?? That's crazy! Why are they talking about Seina SOOOOO much? Did he JUST join the GP between 19 and +1? I don't speak Japanese! What is happening!? I thought Minaho was going to wind up with Seina, but were we 100% on that?!? Like, now I'm not even sure! I don't remember! MK's always been pretty consistent... I'm hoping HOPING that my antagonist theory is correct, but at the same time I don't want to get my hopes up in case he changed his mind and we didn't get the memo. Hot aunt action is SO far up MK's alley, and there's that old doujin picture I mentioned... I'm just scared of being disappointed.

Okay, re-read the stuff I was looking for and my irrational paranoid fear has disappeared! Maybe that old harem pic was an early design for Noike, or maybe Minaho was just there and that's all. The image was, I think, in the old 21st Century doujin. Whatever the case, with a little refresher, I'm 99.9% confident in my original suggestion!

Anyways, really stoked about the episode's success. I want at least 7 episodes!

And has anyone noticed any mention from sub-groups about this episode? Has anybody asked around? Does it normally take this long?

Edit: I just started reading Fapperson's translations of the new doujinshi. I disagree with Minaho about the 'no antagonist' thing! I stand by my assessment! You want proof Minaho?? LOOK IN THE MIRROR!

5,000 copies in such a short amount of time is great news! Hopefully Funimation will get the license and the NA Tenchi fans can help boost sales numbers.

I've always been baffled by how low sales figures are for anime. The highest numbers I've seen is around 25,000. I know that anime is a niche market, but considering how big the global anime fandom has gotten, and the fact that manga, frequently show up on bestseller lists, I feel the numbers  should be much higher.

lol my translations are clunky at best in specific details at times. japanise isn't exactly directly translatable... if you just convert the words you're going to have a sentence full of holes or that is really clunky. so half the time when i translate i know whats being said and i have to rewrite it all so its not so clunktastic and things get lost. in this case  i reaaaaaaaly need to fix this part but dont know how. she actually says this time  the ova doesnt really have a villian  so to say but i hate having to say this im not exactly  the heroine either.
*the word for antagonist is weird here so i initialy translated it out oddly*

and then it just says darekasanno three times. which is more or less some one is.. and she implies its seto.

but see in that order you could be mistaken to think she was saying that seto is a heroine of the ova when she means she's an antagonist... so i flipped it

i dont know what to do about this whole thing without massively rewriting the dialog.

i cant exactly translate it 1:1.  this is still much easier then doing the novels though lol.

Just got done watching the ep. and a couple of things I wanted to say:

The new art-style wasn't nearly as jarring as I thought it could've been.  I'm not sure how to exactly describe it but I guess one word I'd use would be "clean" linework.  I was never confused as to what they were showing me.  It does have a very clear definition of what has animation and what doesn't though (like older warner bros cartoons) and does reuse about a minute's worth of reused sequences of animation but that kinda stuff doesn't bother me. 

I never watched the jap dub all that much but the voices matched who they were portraying.

Yosho wasn't in the ep at all but was mentioned but I couldn't pick up everything that was said.

Ryoko and Aeka seem to finally be on good terms openly with each other since they never fought except for when Aeka threw a pillow at Ryoko at the start of the ep for something minor.  There was never a fight for Tenchi ever in the ep.

First half of the ep was purely slice-of-life.  It takes place in September.  Just a casual day honestly.

Minaho was kinda a big focal point of the ep towards the latter half.  For those able to translate, I posted some pics of the bluray on this site and the black-and-white pic of Tenchi and Minaho where she says the line to him [it has to do with something being cute (when they were a child and still are now?);I'm guessing Tenchi].  Could someone that can translate jap text please translate that if possible?  It seems to be the "hook" for the next ep and is the last scene and line said.

Hey I attached below some screenshots of the pictures taken at Noboyuki and Rea's wedding.

I thought maybe they were worth a second or third look considering the situation.

The second and third pictures give me a bit of hope.
It seems like she might have been flirting with Noboyuki because she is so desperate to get married. (and maybe her attempt to woo Tenchi didn't go so well.  :emot-smugdog:)
Then the third picture Airi and Yosho are like GTFO of here with that ... the bride is right there.

Also I think we all know why Tokimi is so interested in Rea and Noboyuki's wedding. Probably has to do with Kenshi and the task he has been given.
(That might have already been stated in a Doujinshi or something.. I'm not well read on the war on geminar stuff.)

Hi, I've been looking all flipping over for the first ova of the fourth series. Even without subs, I'm just dying to see it. I guess posting links in the actual thread is forbidden, can any one p.m me the link?

So, new villain is a female this time trying to take Tenchi for herself? YAY Harem team work.

Edit;

Ok, just saw the ova. Without English subs though :(

Still, at least I was finally able to see it, it was in good quality too thank goodness. Course I would have accepted horrible quality as long as I was able to see it, it wouldn't have been the first time I've dealt with that type of stuff.

It was ok, me being a Tenchi / Ryoko shipper hopes they have moments this arc like they had a few in ova 3. It was weird not seeing her really get jealous over this new girl who I can see being a major threat to her. I'd really like to know what was said at the end of the ova though, Tenchi sure blushed a lot.

In the first episode, Mikami Kuramitsu appears to be around the same age as Airi Masaki appears to be (either in her late twenties or thirties).  Mikami is suppose to be around 10,000 years old.  In GXP,  she look like a highly respected elder. 

I can speculate that Mikami had inherited the ability to change her age at her own free will from her grandmother Washu.  Washu has the ability to change her age.  Washu likes to look like a girl around twelve for some reasons.  Washu could have simply have gotten used to looking like a twelve-year old girl.  Yet, Washu can make herself  as a mature woman.

Mikami had likely found out that Washu is her paternal grandmother and being the oldest of the three Chousin sisters. While Minami is the Head of the Kuramitsu Family, Mikami happens to be more powerful than her brother Minami as well as being the true head of the Kuramitsu Family.  Minami had likely learn the truth about Washu from Mikami. He is likely sort of proud of being related to one of the Chouisn Sisters.  Of course, Mikami and Minami will keep the truth about Washu being one of the Chousin Sisters a highly guarded secret.

Intro and Ending are on Youtube now

Thanks for this. Can't wait to gif some of it.
I was planning on waiting for the fansubs but I don't think I can wait haha. I mean I'll be waiting til summer for the 4 planned episodes to be done...  :neg:

Watched these tho and I am happier with the animation then I thought I would be. Not to fond of the music tho. I liked OVA 1 and 3's opening a lot. Hopefully they are working on
a good opening animation for the next volume.

Do you guy's think at some point in one of the OVA episodes Seina will make a cameo? With all this talk of him, makes me wonder.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: GP cadet 87 on December 12, 2016, 09:22:45 PM
I'm pretty sure if there is a time skip, Seina will show up.

If I remember correctly, in episode 17 of GXP, when Seina visited Tenchi's place, Rea was pregnant with Kenshi. Obviously, the OVA and the GXP novels share a stronger connection, so Seina might show up eventually regardless of how much time passes after the wedding.

Also, to everyone who has seen the episode. Have you watched it in a torrent site or a video hosting site? Don't post a link, just pm me, or if possible, tell me the title of the episode so I can find it easier.

Where did it say the fourth Ova took place before Seina visited earth? I mean when Tenchi's sister had that cameo in Gxp that was when Seina was having that dual with um what's his face.

You'd think with how much money it's been making some one would have uploaded it in English subs by now, if I spoke Jappanese or learned the language I'd have already done it by now for every one, boo!!! >>

Oh well, at least I can watch it * Sigh *

Hopefully we get confirmation on Ova 5 or extended episodes soon.

Now I wonder why Ai Tenchi was such a turn off? Was it the different kind of Animation or the story didn't appeal to the fandom? How good did Ova 3 sales do? It must have done well enough that earned a series years later right?

I hope so.

A lot of anime is made to advertise manga and novels. Right now Kaji is working on the GXP novels. Tenchi Muyo series is a good way to build on the universe, create something nostaglic, and advertise the novels (especially while featuring characters from it like Minaho and Airi.)

Because Ai did so poorly working on Tenchi was a real liability so thats probably why he could only get them to agree to 4 episodes. OVA 3 did pretty good in Japan from what I understand. Makes sense... They had the same VAs, access to the novels, and people liked gxp.

So no subs yet? I'm tempted to get my friend to help me translate the chinese subs and just upload it on nyaa. I held back since I recalled someone on here said they would sub it. Is that not happening anymore?

I'm pretty sure he said he needed Japanese subs. I'm not sure.
(I think he is also pretty busy with the GXP Novels and a Kajishima doujin that talks about Minaho's situation.)

From what I can reason, it sold around 18-20K per volume. While GXP sold around half of that.

So no one we know here is currently subbing this. Alright, I'll see what I can do. No guarantees, especially since my friend prefers Love Hina as his favorite harem anime.

Washu likes to look like a girl around twelve for some reasons.

She explains why in episode 8, "Hello Baby", if you were unclear.

To save those with hazy memories from having to look it up:

Boy I hope your right Andraste, if this new girl causes drama in the harem. It sounds like she wants to take Tenchi for herself, since she's not being sent by Seto match maker like what's her face was in the beginning of Ova 3 I could see a fight coming in the later episodes :)

I'd like some true emotion shown from all girls over this, I know Tenchi in Tokyo wasn't popular in the fandom but I always felt one thing it did right was show emotions, Ryoko's big date for example was a good one.

I'm with yah on the subs thing, I was looking all over for Ova 4 just over all, finally!

I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to part two, sucks we have to wait till Fen ><

Ok just finished watching the raw episode. There are quite a few things to talk about.

The focus was on Rea and Nobuyuki's wedding the whole way through, which is a great starting point to the new OVA. The opening where we see Ryo-ohki wandering the house is a really nice touch. Apparently she fantasizes about Tenchi too lol.

For the most part, the characters are just discussing the wedding and their reactions to it.

I know some fans might be confused over the new characters, but for me it's great seeing the Tenchi cast being expanded.

Several characters mention Seina quite a bit, which is surprising. Mikami is um, really forward about what she wants to do with Seina. Even though there are no subs and I don't speak Japanese, her tone and Tenyo and Airi's expressions are unmistakable.  :heysexy:Poor Seina. American fans who are only familiar with the old looking woman from GXP are in for a big surprise. Damn that is one fine grandmamma!

Tenchi and Minaho's meeting and converstion are both very sweet. Ayeka and Ryoko not being jealous at the loving embrace between nephew and aunt was also nice to see. Unfortunately whatever Minaho said about Tenchi's mom I couldn't fully make out from context, other than the fact was Kiyone was apparently too headstrong and adventurous  for her own good.

That cliffhanger ending. I know it must be something huge, but I have absolutely no idea what was said. It's not the wait to see what will happen next that'll kill me, but the fact that I have to wait for subs to know what the cliffhanger was.

All in all, a great nostalgia trip that lets us know that things are going to get crazy for Tenchi again very soon. I really really hope that Seina will actually show up. There's no way the writers mentioned him so much by accident.

This is my take on it. *Note I do not speak Japanese. This is what I get from the context and from some keywords that I believe I am hearing.

After blushing Tenchi says her calling him cute is "kind of..." or "a bit..." (chotto)

It sounds like she says something along the lines of:

I've decided...(kimeta)
Kiyone's (something) son... (Kiyone ... musuko)

...a line I could maybe guess at some but really don't know...

I'd like to... (suki)
Eat you up. (kurau)

Though I'm probably completely wrong   :shyboy:

Right basically asking to date him.
Seto must be up to something.

I hope this OVA shows them coming together as a family. I like how Ryoko and Ayeka seem to be respecting Tenchi as a person (like when Minaho went in for the hug.) and hopefully this situation will make him realize what he wants.

In sketches in the book Tenchi has kids with multiple woman in his harem right? I'm hoping this is leading up to that for the final.

I am hopeful for the final the Harem team works together to save Tenchi, if it's about him being forced to get married with this new girl even though he wouldn't want to, I could see this :D

I also am hoping for some true emotions from each girls point of view on this, some thing truly emotional like Ryoko's big date.

Keep in mind she hasn't seen him since Kiyone's funeral.
She might just want to (platonically) get acquainted with him.
And this is a way to tease him & us both.

The Mikami really did throw me - but I figured it was a GXP thing and/or a character redesign shortly into the scene, but then I remembered the old Mikami is in OVA 3.

It seems to be a disguise similar to Yosho's, in order to get more respect, and not distract her subordinates with how attractive she is naturally.

There are a few illustrations of her younger self in the GXP novels, especially #10. Believe me, when I realized she was the same old dumpy lady from the show, my jaw hit the floor. She's basically pulling a Yosho, using an advanced holographic disguise to appear old, but in reality she looks to be in her early 30's at the very most. I can't say for certain, but apparently she decided to drop the disguise just to mess with Seina.

I don't know why characters in the Tenchiverse choose to look old (besides Yosho, who was in hiding), but if I had to guess, she doesn't want to get hit on by men as soon as she leaves her house. Seriously, she looks hotter than her own great-niece!

Even better, according to Washu, she is one of the 20 women candidates (of whom 6 we still don't know about) who can counter Seina's bad luck. And judging by Airi and Tenyo's reactions and how they kept mentioning Seina, she is quite serious about getting it on with the poor kid.

I find it hilarious that Kajishima's latest doujinshi explaining the background to OVA 4 says explicitly that she looks hotter than Amane.

God, that must suck; Amane is a former super model, and not only is her boss equal to her in looks, but she's after her Earth boy toy too.  :heysexy:

I know that Kajishima-sensei established Mikami as looking younger in the doujinshi and other places. I've never been a fan of that though. Then again, I'm not sure how old she really is.

That said, it should also mean that Minami has a similar, young look.

I know it's your personal opinion, but can you elaborate, because I find that a bit confusing. Seto is stated to be at least 6000 years old IIRC, and barely looks into her 40s. Hell, even she teases Seina a little bit. Life extension tech is widespread throughout the galaxy. Mikami considers her true self to be extremely attractive; I assume she puts on the old lady disguise just to avoid being hit on everywhere.

That's also why I find Airi's sensitivity about her age so funny. At best she looks to be into her early '30's, in peak physical condition.

That's one reason why I envy Tenchi and Seina quite a bit. The girls will look beautiful for many centuries to come.  :heysexy:

I like the disquise but dislike the change in character. Like she went from being super respectable to well... You know.


My favorite thing aside from the character growth of Ryoko and Ayeka is the new friendship of Tokimi and Mihoshi. Honestly I wasn't sure I would like a chibi Tokimi in the house but I do because of this.

from gxp vol 1 chapter 4 :
"oh, is that so..."
     I see...in other words...
    "...airi-san, is Tenchi-senpai's grandma!"
    "Don't call me grandma!"
 Immediatly her expression changed to that of a serious roaring demon.
    "Pardon me!"
    "Seina-kun, I want to be to be seen as a young beautiful woman. There is no reason to call me grandma, don't you agree hmm"
     Airi unexpectedly moved to snuggled up to Seina's shoulder.     


i think airi is sensitive about her grandma status because she had minaho while she was super young even by earth stadards and im pretty sure yosho just ran off. so for longer then she's ever been a young childness bachellorette she has been a  single mother. not to mention minaho is bitter about being an age considered to be basicly an old maid at this point. airi isnt much older. but yeah its hillarious because she looks like she is amanes age.

Well I watched it and I have to say it does feel good to have Tenchi back but the pace is really slow.  While I liked the slice of life, Most of it was almost too much introduction.  The wedding better take place next episode or it will really drag. 

Seina also had a much more of a presence than I expected.  They took up almost the entire 1st half talking about him.  Just from this episode I'd say it takes place around the 6th GXP Volume as Mikami had then shown her true form and she says "This season a new recruit with a bright future just entered" and Tsukiko mentions that Kiriko has just made her resolve and looking through the first 6 volumes you can see that "resolve". 

Also, Minaho's final words don't have the nuance of asking Tenchi to go on a date.  The phrase can be used for that and in most anime, most characters will misunderstand it for that for that, mostly for the laughs, but its more along the lines of "just come along with me".  She basically wants to spend a full day of so alone with Tenchi, but its not in a romantic sense.  Tenchi says as soon as he sees her that she reminds him of Kiyone.  Its due to his he blushes most of the time.

I know it's your personal opinion, but can you elaborate, because I find that a bit confusing.

Here is my problem with it. While I know that everyone outside of Earth can live a long time, the fact that Mikami (and apparently Minami) disguise themselves as older people comes off as stupid to me. When Yosho did it, there was a genuine purpose to it. As someone who'd bonded with a Royal Tree and drunk the special water, Yosho can live a couple thousand years, which is something like 10 times longer than a normal Juraian. So having Funaho-ki give him an alternate appearance of an older man makes sense considering the surrounding.

The Kuramitsu family are long lived. So I don't have a problem with Mikami being a few hundred years old. However, in GXP, Mikami is an older, mature, respectable woman who's in charge of Galaxy Police Academy. However old Mikami was in GXP, I figured her appearance is her appearance. Maybe she's 250 years old. Whatever. And since the Kuramitsu family is a very powerful, well known family, there's no reason people wouldn't know they live a long time.

For this first episode of OVA 4, Kajishima-sensei gets to pull an element from the GXP novels (and his doujinshi) of "sexy Mikami" into the anime. Suddenly, Mikami is reduced from being a sensible, mature, older, intelligent, respectable, middle age woman from a powerful family in the galaxy who's also in charge of the Galaxy Police Academy to being some "bitch in heat" (pardon the expression) who wants to bang an underage teen boy. Further, this "bitch in heat" version of Mikami is apparently her true form. Seriously?

If the scene were Mikami using a disguise to appear as she did in her younger years as a means of tweaking the others, then I'd probably be OK with it. But if this is Mikami's true form, then it reduces her as a character to stupidity. Further, it makes no sense to me for her to wear an older woman disguise. Ditto Minami with his older man disguise.

In vol 10, when they have just defeated the good luck fleet for the first  time and are having a vacation in that tropical island, called Imu-Imu, Mikami and seto both come along and Mikami, while looking kind is actually absolutely ruthless in getting what she wants from people.  The old form is basically showing that she's not as scary as she was when she was younger. In vol 10, it's said that she was even more of a "ruffian" than Seto was back in the day. She even went and picked fights with Seto, who you never pick fights with.

I know that Kajishima-sensei established Mikami as looking younger in the doujinshi and other places. I've never been a fan of that though. Then again, I'm not sure how old she really is.

I know it's your personal opinion, but can you elaborate, because I find that a bit confusing.

The Kuramitsu family are long lived. So I don't have a problem with Mikami being a few hundred years old. However, in GXP, Mikami is an older, mature, respectable woman who's in charge of Galaxy Police Academy. However old Mikami was in GXP, I figured her appearance is her appearance. Maybe she's 250 years old. Whatever. And since the Kuramitsu family is a very powerful, well known family, there's no reason people wouldn't know they live a long time.

For this first episode of OVA 4, Kajishima-sensei gets to pull an element from the GXP novels (and his doujinshi) of "sexy Mikami" into the anime. Suddenly, Mikami is reduced from being a sensible, mature, older, intelligent, respectable, middle age woman from a powerful family in the galaxy who's also in charge of the Galaxy Police Academy to being some "bitch in heat" (pardon the expression) who wants to bang an underage teen boy. Further, this "bitch in heat" version of Mikami is apparently her true form. Seriously?

If the scene were Mikami using a disguise to appear as she did in her younger years as a means of tweaking the others, then I'd probably be OK with it. But if this is Mikami's true form, then it reduces her as a character to stupidity.
 

I think you may be making unfair assumptions about her personality when we can't see the whole picture, not having full access to the extra material. Before you say anything, I've read your TM FAQ and I know how much work you've done to get info about all of that. Thank you for the hard work btw. 

I see Mikami as similar to Misato Katsuragi, a calm cool professional on duty, a laid back, flirty party girl at home.

Like I said, she may wear the disguise to give herself an air of authority and make her subordinates take her seriously. Let's face it, her true form would be a constant distraction.

I will agree that her pursuit of Seina is quite disconcerting, if not outright squicky. There's actually a funny bit of dialogue in the first OVA 4 episode where Mikami calls out Tenyo and Airi for being hypocrites, considering their iffy behavior with Tenchi (I'm guessing, judging by the tone she uses and the Japanese words I recognize). Let's be fair to Kajishima; the GXP series changed a lot of his original ideas. For all we know it was always his intent to have Mikami be young and sexy.

Then again, all of Seina's love interests are significantly older than him, except Ryoko Balta who according to the Tenchi wiki, is only 19. Neeju is over 2,000 years old, for God's sake!  By Earth standards, all of Seina's love interests, especially Kiriko, who is chronologically/biologically 33, would be considered odd, if not outright deviants, for being in a relationship with him. 

We all know how weird Tenchi's love life is, but it's become less disconcerting in his case because he's now clearly an adult. Think about it; Seina calls Tenchi his "senpai" which means at best they are 3-5 years apart in age. What's the big difference between Tenchi and Seina's harem? I mean, besides the whole family tree issue. Ryoko Ayeka and Mihoshi are at least mentally the same age as Tenchi. Let's not forget Washu; irregardless of their true natures, mentally she is many millennia older than Tenchi, and has explicitly said she wants to bear his child. By comparison, Seina is involved with older women too, but outside of Kiriko and Neeju of course, the age gap of his haremettes is far less severe.

I understand why you would find Mikami's behavior upsetting, I really do. But calling her "a bitch in heat" seems a bit harsh. Amane by contrast, was far more brazen with her flirting in the GXP TV series. You can explain away some of her flirting early on by saying that she was just messing with Kiriko and Seiryo, but by episode 7/8 she:

Does sexy poses to get a reaction out of him, shows up in nothing but her underwear at the dining room table, uses Seina's personal bathroom, doesn't bat an eye at having her panties around her ankles  when he sees her either, and invites him to share a bath with her. And on top of that, she's his instructor. If Mikami is a "bitch in heat", Amane is a nymphomaniac.  :heysexy:

This may be a case of severe values dissonance, as often happens with anime. I just found out a few days ago by pure coincidence that the age of consent in Japan is 13 (it varies region by region, but 13 is the bare minimum for girls/boys to engage in a romantic/sexual relationship with parental consent at the national level). Here's a link: https://www.ageofconsent.net/world/japan  So, whether we agree with it or not, apparently from Kajishima-sensei's perspective, Seina is fair game for older women. Though considering that all of his stories contain an older love interest, it may be a fetish of his more then anything involving Japanese culture.

I think this is worth opening up another thread, if anyone is interested to discuss the issue.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on December 25, 2016, 03:40:22 PM
Mikami Kuramitsu's age is suppose to be ten thousand years.  I like her old age look in GXP since it had given Mikami a sign of authority, and respect.  For a country like Japan, the elderly are given a lot of respect, and honor.  I did suggest that Mikami have inherited her paternal grandmother Washu's ability to change her looks. One of Washu's reasons for remaining in the image of a child was due to her hatred of class priviledges which most powerful families like the Kuramitsu Family has.  I do think that Washu had simply gotten used to liking the image of a twelve-year-old girl.

Mikami will have learn about Washu being one of the three Chousin Sisters.  She could have learn about Washu being her grandmother sometime in the past.  Since Mikami is one of the most powerful members of the Kuramitsu, she will have some critical knowledge of Washu being her paternal grandmother. Mikami would have kept any knowledge of Washu being her grandmother a secret.

I do like Mikami's younger image.  Mikami's older self can be a disguise.  She will notice that her elder image will give Mikami a better look as an authority figure.  As the headmistress of the Galaxy Police Branch of the Galaxy Academy, Mikami will find her elder image less of a major distraction as well as an image of authority.

 :how: :rwhy: :huhm:

If OVA 4 was going to have six episodes,  Mikami will have likely visit the Earth to see Washu.  Mikami's reasons for seeing Washu are mostly going to be political reasons.  Indeed, rest of Mikam's reasons are primary personal.  While Mikami main reasons for seeing Washu are focus on developing an alliance between Washu and the Seniwan Empire,  some of her reasons will focus on secret reconcilation between Washu and the Kuramitsu Family.

*Sees the bath scene shot*

Okay, given what we know and Minaho might not be such an antagonist... now I'm officially convinced.  If those are Tenchi's hands, I think Minaho's basically the "love doctor and sensei" in this situation (Which he needed at this point), and Tenchi's gonna marry at least one of the girls (We know he eventually marries all of them) by the time OVA 4 is over.  Calling it now.

...but yeah, didn't I call that he was gonna get some loving before this was over?  Thought so.   :parrot:

They look pretty feminine to me. Large but feminine.


I think Minaho's basically the "love doctor and sensei" in this situation (Which he needed at this point), and Tenchi's gonna marry at least one of the girls.
:speculate:

She is either going to pretend to try to take him to bring them together as a family (or she is there to openly help.) Pretty much I think Seto is using her to urge him into marriage with these girls because it creates an amazing galactic alliance.

Then again it is ultra powerful and not nessicarily alligned with Jurai's interests. After seeing Tenchi turn into Kami Tenchi (and how easily he convinced Noike to side with him) she could think she needs to monitor the situation as closely as possible and wants him living on Jurai asap.

I think Seto is the true "antagonist" but who knows if her end goal is to split them or bring them together. I mean it was very much implied in that Kaji doujinshi. Poor Minaho. She gets to be the hated one for awhile. Minaho could possibly want Tenchi for herself because of all the pressure her family has put on her to marry. Whatever the situation is, Minaho is not to happy with Seto about it.

So she is there to openly play love doctor, has a convolued plan to bring them together (Seems more Setos style), or legit wants her family off her back and Seto wants to bring Tenchi close.

Those are the 3 possible scenarios I could see playing out right now. Hard to say with so little translated atm (including vol. 1)


*edit- Attached the image of Seto and Minaho I'm talking about.

That trailer was disappointing. Way too much old footage. It's weird seeing trailers to individual episodes. I wonder if the episode will focus completely on Minaho and Tenchi bonding.

I'm fine with that. 4 episodes isn't a lot of space for a story arc. I'm fine with character development.

I'd rather them error on too little than too much. Plus they will probably put out another preview or two.

I also agree with the music as well.
At least for the openings, while I don't think any will beat TU and GXP for me - though all the old series are all pretty close - OVA 4 is my least favorite.

So much hate on today's internet it's a shame that some people only exist on here to cause negativity for others, Awful!

EDIT: I'd like to get a little more in depth with this actually, It really bothers me that certain people (Im not just talking about this fandom ether just in general) go out of their way to tell you how to feel about certain things and do everything they can to make a certain group of people feel bad just for liking something that they don't like.

As an example I generally like most of the Tenchi series and it's spin offs however I don't like Tenchi in Tokyo or Ai Tenchi. But there is more than a few people that have signed up here and discovered more of the series thanks to Ai Tenchi and even Tenchi in Tokyo as some people do enjoy the humor in that particular series.

I don't want to be the "voice" of a community as it's not my place or anyone else's place to dictate to people what is good and what isn't that's for the fans to decide and even if a majority of those fans like something over what a minority fan group does why harass them?

(http://i.imgur.com/wmjSOVp.jpg)
Joseph Joestar's immortal words are the only proper response, given that they actually took time to sub Ai which was pretty negatively received as whole even in Japan... wow.  Just, WOW.  I honestly don't know what to say in response to this directly, but I WILL say that this fanbase REALLY rustles our Jimmies sometimes, man.  This is like they just don't give a you know what, and it goes back to what Soviet just said about certain folks not liking certain parts of the franchise and making those who do look like donkeys for it (A statement which I agree wholeheartedly with, hence the +1 Soviet just got from me - keep in mind that I also don't like Tokyo and Ai, but at the same time you don't see me just blindly blast them *Points to his recent commentary in the remembering Ai thread*).  The fact that they are doing this to OVA 4, which we have waited YEARS (Including a bad 20th anniversary that puts the one that Power Rangers got to shame) for... gosh darnit, it's just bad man, and at this point I'm about ready to sling some mud myself.  That's pretty bad given that I'm a respectful guy for the most part and don't have any heat with anyone involved with any fanbase I'm part of right now, and like I may have said before, I really don't want to go down that path.  Been there, done that, never again.

But yeah, THIS RIGHT HERE is why CrunchyRoll, etc. should have picked it up.  That way, we wouldn't have had to deal with the fanbase slinging mud at each other over stuff like this at a time we thought it was pretty much over.  Ai really messed things up at this point (I believe its failure which resulted in no western release for Ai is the reason why Crunchy and the others didn't jump on OVA 4 as I pointed out before) and I'm just, darnit...  :doom:

Harls is right they aren't obligated and it was really cool of them to translate Ai. (Even though I didn't care for it aside from the concept art.)

They aren't obligated, no, but that's not what bugs me here.  What bugs me is the elitist attitude that they're carrying.  If you're in the position to do something like this in any fanbase, you don't just say "oh we don't like it so we're not translating it!" like a bunch of trolls.  A "no thank you" would work much better and wouldn't damage your reputation.  What they did here is the kind of stuff that tears fanbases apart from within.  Had they just politely said that they don't wanna do it... that would be different.  But not only are they refusing to do it, they're putting out flamebait at the same time.  There's a difference between politely saying "no thanks" and yelling "we ain't doing it @#$% you!", and in this case it's the latter.

On the other hand... there ISN'T another option right now.  None of the other fansub groups have shown interest.  So yeah, panic mode activated.  We're gonna need a miracle to get outta this one before episode 2 in February.

THANK YOU.  My thoughts exactly.  Especially when the chances of OVA 4 getting licensed are non existant right now and DOUBLE especially when even Crunchy won't go near it.

TLDR They aren't obligated, but they didn't have to be a bunch of donkeys and flamebaiting trolls when they said no.  And we all just saw it.  They were a bunch of trolls and rubbed it in our faces.  That's not fanbase unity, that's called fanbase butchery from within.  To quote "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, "Jack the Ripper could have done a better job than that."

But yeah, THIS RIGHT HERE is why CrunchyRoll, etc. should have picked it up. 

You can blame Japan for no one in America having this. To buy the first episode with all of the extras is a little under $70 (US). The Japanese market is based on getting fans to pay outrageous amounts of money for DVDs or BDs, as well as whatever other products that are being sold in conjunction with the DVD/BD. And while some OVAs have been simulcast, OVA 4 is being treated like a limited edition release, exclusive to Japanese fans and those outside of Japan who are willing to shell out a lot of money. As such, I don't expect to see it on CR or licensed/released by FUNimation until well after all of the episodes are released in Japan.

That the other forum has no interest in subbing OAV4 is absolutely no surprise to anyone that's been around for a while.  AND THEY DON'T OWE ANYONE A TRANSLATION FOR ANYTHING.  JUST LIKE WE DON'T.  People doing their own thing on their own time for free and all that.

Since there are a lot of fandom neophytes are joining now, here is my quick VERY GENERALIZED rundown of Tenchi / fandom history, not that it really matters:

The absolute heyday of Tenchi Muyo in the JAPANESE fandom was from 1992 (OAV1 start) to 1998ish (TinT), probably peaking around 1995.   This is going by the merchandise (games, calenders, etc) and the number and dates of fan doujins listed on Tenchi.org.  There's a reason TinT (1998) was the last TV show until GXP and TMiL2 (1999) the last movie.

In the US, it was much later, from the late 90s (1996? onward) to 2002ish.  Adult Swim on Toonami aired it in 2000 iirc and that was the peak in the English speaking world.  There were several fanfiction sites just dedicated to it, many, many, many geocities fan sites, and at least 20ish forums of varying sizes.  It was already in some decline by time OAV3 was announced simply because it hadn't been on steady television rotation anymore for a while.

In both markets, the series has shown staying power although it's not the absolute anime fad it once was in the 1990s.

Japan is also by far the most important market.  Japanese fans will spend WAY MORE $$$.  They buy these expensive discs at $70 an episode and they'll buy all that glorious high margin MERCHANDISING the western fans will never see.  Calendars, figures, keychains, doujins, etc.  The western consumer wants to pay $40-50 for the entire box set on release, add in the expense of translations/dubbing and a niche market and we're simply not that important.  We're just a lump sum licensing fee since Pioneer faded away.

For another example on market differences: fan expectations.  The most popular girl in Japan was (is?) Sasami by far.  That's why she got her own 3 ep OAV, and 2 seperate 26 episode TV shows, Sasami Stories in the Okuda manga, etc.  Yes, purely Pretty Sammyish stuff has almost as many anime episodes as all Tenchi Muyo franchise proper, the 00's Magical Girl's Club show is rarely even mentioned by title in fan circles while it got a second season in Japan.  They even Sasami-fied TMiL 2's ending with a sequel manga called "Eternal Memory", speculatively because of Japanese fans being upset.  In the west, the most popular girl is Ryoko, and this will play on OTP biases.

There was also a great mound of misinformation here in the west in the early days that's still spread around, baseless speculations taken as gospel, bad translations (OAV1, Tenchi's griefstricken cry of "Mom" got turned into "Grandma!" in english -- leading to years of an entire unnecessary "true" mom Achika debate that Japanese fans never "enjoyed"), lack of access/translation to many printed materials and japanese web discussion.  Casual TV fans didn't even realize that different continuities existed.  To most of them, Tenchi simply was the guy who saved all the girls from both space pirate/would-be-King Kagatos, got sucked back in time by Kain, was kidnapped by Haruna, and was the jerk who left the girls to go to Tokyo and be with Sakuya.  PURE INFORMATION SPAGHETTI.

Through all that confusion, a ton of fans were mostly interested in rooting their OTP (one true pairing) that harbored expectations for future TMs the Japanese simply didn't have, and a second ton of fans were interested in the original Tenchi Muyo world itself aside any OTP considerations.    Before OAV3 was released, many western Kajishima fans essentially warned everyone, "TM!R isn't an OTP series.  MK's history of animes shows this."  After much argument, it finally sank in, many OTP fans turned against MK before OAV3 even aired a single episode and the two groups have been clashing since.  Granted, OAV3 was not spectacular and rightly deserved criticism but just realize this deep hatred for OAV3 a decade later doesn't originate in what actually happened in the anime itself, those 7 episodes aren't the wellspring of their vile but what they now KNOW is coming vs what the expectations that were built up by the circumstances.

This fundamental schism ran deep down the western fandom and spread to many boards, it caused a lot of topics to transition into tired arguments upon arguments upon arguments upon arguments ad nauseum.  Until around 2010 iirc, by then the fandom basically got whittled down to one single forum where the bickering continued unabated, and a divorce between these two groups was finally initiated and both went their own way.

And it was the single best thing to happen to all concerned.  That's basically how UselessTenchi and the other forum came about.  A tiresome decade of nonstop bickering ended, everyone needed a break and got to focus on what was important to them and finally be fannish what they want to be fannish about without constantly being defensive or presenting it with apology.  Everyone benefited from the arrangement.  And now you all see the friction when the two try to come together again... don't force fan family reunions.

Also don't believe anyone trying represent themselves or their group as the ONE AND ONLY overriding voice of the fandom... the #1 true definitive fansite in the entire known multiverse or whatever, there's no such thing.  As long as just two fans exist of anything, there will be at least two different viewpoints.

So let's not get into forum wars.  OAV4 has an entire year of episode releases, I'm sure it will be translated eventually.

I was hoping they'd full-on kiss in OAV3 XD

The amount of non-interest from groups to sub OVA4 is truly shocking to me. I have not followed the Tenchi fandom/forums and all of the craziness described above anything but still...It's Tenchi for crying out loud. How can there be no one/group interested, that has the capability, to translate it?

I mean we have the sh*tty DBZ Super translated. There is now a godly SSJ Blue - Hold up...we have Goku who isn't really Goku who can go "beyond"  :smug:.... to...wait for it....... SSJ "Rouge".....Also since my name is Trunks and everyone likes me, I can hold off SSJ Rouge plus an immortal Kai that SSJ Blue Goku/Vegeta could not...Really could this show get any worse? Oh wait... Vegeta looses to a gag manga character - Goku can just hold off in most powerful form and we start playing interstellar baseball.... Yet I still watch it every week... :shepicide:

Whoops sorry for the tangent rant.

But in all seriousness if you consider yourself a Tenchi fan at any level how can you be so compelled to reject the OVA because it doesn't fit your ideal.
Maybe it's just hard for me to understand because I like the OVAs over the other series for the overall story/character/universe depth, and simply enjoy the other series for their entertainment/character relationships as just alternate universes - even though TU was my intro to Tenchi and probably the most nostalgic.

That the other forum has no interest in subbing OAV4 is absolutely no surprise to anyone that's been around for a while.  AND THEY DON'T OWE ANYONE A TRANSLATION FOR ANYTHING.  JUST LIKE WE DON'T.  People doing their own thing on their own time for free and all that.

Since there are a lot of fandom neophytes are joining now, here is my quick VERY GENERALIZED rundown of Tenchi / fandom history, not that it really matters:
Quote
The absolute heyday of Tenchi Muyo in the JAPANESE fandom was from 1992 (OAV1 start) to 1998ish (TinT), probably peaking around 1995.   This is going by the merchandise (games, calenders, etc) and the number and dates of fan doujins listed on Tenchi.org.  There's a reason TinT (1998) was the last TV show until GXP and TMiL2 (1999) the last movie.

So let's not get into forum wars.  OAV4 has an entire year of episode releases, I'm sure it will be translated eventually.

This entire speech right here deserves a series of golf claps.  Not just one.  It pretty much sums the point I was trying to get across along with pretty much everyone else here.  The problem we have is not the fact that they're the only voice in the fanbase (Bottom line, as Jibs said, they're NOT the only such voice and neither is anyone else), but they're trying to flamebait us and stir up horse manure... after a 10 year wait for OVA 4 to finally happen.  Combined with the fact that Ai's failure means that OVA 4 has a bat's chance in Hades of getting licensed right now, it's kind of like kicking us when we're already knocked down.  That's what's frustrating about the whole thing... but we can't let them get to us.

TLDR Let's not stir the pot.  I expressed my frustration towards them here, yes, but I do not plan on starting or taking part in a forum war, and I refuse to do so.  That's the kind of thing that tears fanbases apart.  Let's keep it clean, folks.  :)

Petitioning different fansub groups seems like a good idea.

^ This.  With Crunchy now a thing, the fansub groups as a whole don't have to focus on a bunch of franchises at once like was the case back in the day.  There is more than likely a fansub group who would likely get it done... all we have to do is ask around.

For me - and probably others - we have seen the posts.... weighed the options to just "shell out 20-30 bucks", but :

The fandom services seems like the best bet - though do not list any type of pricing....

Ultimately I'm not to the point that where I think that it won't be picked up in the relative near future.  So I will sit on it a bit longer before I just shell out the cash...

-=Though=- if we can get 10-15 willing to drop a couple dollars - I'm right there.

Shouldn't we get a higher quality rip? I dont mind the current quality but some seem to.
I was checking them out. Thanks for linking.

I don't think it matters - someone can post a higher quality raw at anytime - then just need to extract the subs and remux, maybe a little timing.

If these are in response to my post - it was not my intent, I was truly just stating my surprise at the situation, and that's probably because I wasn't around for things in the past.

For me - and probably others - we have seen the posts.... weighed the options to just "shell out 20-30 bucks", but :
  • Most of the links the group/person wants it to have simulcast/transcripts/or closed captions - if not, they charge even more or (more than likely) wont accept...(doesn't exactly instill confidence in their ability to translate)

This is also what I'm worried about.  From what I've heard, there's no closed captions involved with the OVA 4 BluRays.  Which dampens our options much more given that the fansub groups are basically saying, as noted, "closed captions or transcripts or we won't do it".  And given that there's no word of a licensed release (Which I have a gut feeling that at least Crunchy would have picked it up by now had Ai not bombed)... yeah, we have every right in the world to be worried right now.

Semi related.  The "oh no Crunchy didn't pick it up!" logic isn't hitting just Tenchi.  It's hitting Digimon pretty hard too right now, and perhaps with worse logic than what is being applied with OVA 4.  The current TV series, Digimon Universe Appli Monsters, has yet to be picked up by Crunchy, whereas every prior season, including Digimon Xros Wars: Young Hunters of all things (Which like Ai also bombed in Japan I must note) was.  Digimon Adventure Tri was picked up, and that's an OVA released in a similar way to Gundam Unicorn, so you'd think that given Tri got picked up, Appmon would also... but nope.  Strange stuff, folks.

If these are in response to my post - it was not my intent, I was truly just stating my surprise at the situation, and that's probably because I wasn't around for things in the past.

Nah.  In my case, it wasn't in response to your post, or anyone else's for that matter.  It was just me reiterating the point that Jibs made is all.  Take a breather, man.

Also, closing thought.  If it becomes necessary, I will make a recommendation that one of the admins could take all this talk about the "OVA 4 might not get English subs oh no!" drama from here and move it into a separate thread.  That way, we can continue talking about OVA 4 in this thread (Which is the intended purpose after all) and this discussion here and now can be bought to it's own thread.  The way it should be - fair, balanced, and organized.  :)

Digimon Adventure Tri isn't an OVA. It's a series of films.

Series of films, yes... but then VERY quickly released to video (In fact, same day digital even in Japan).  Hence the comparison that the Digimon fanbase (Which I'm an active part of I should note) makes to Gundam Unicorn.  The same thing happened there, and IIRC, Unicorn was considered an OVA.  But that's getting too off topic from the Tenchi OVA 4 stuff... so now I'll make the recommendation that this discussion about the subs and so forth gets split off into a separate thread from the OVA 4 discussion.  *Presses the Call Steward button*  ;)

I'm diggin it.

You would get stabbed in some circles for saying that. but I agree.

I like OVA 4's ending animation the least also. :neg: I loved the other 3. I guess it just isn't as cute and focused on Ryo-ohki as the others.
For me nothing will ever beat The Lonely Moon, and Talent for Love when it comes to Tenchi endings... that nostalgia is strong.

I love that song. On the full length version of the song, it opens in a slow, sad fashion with a piano accompaniment. I was thinking how cool that would have been to have played when Nobuyuki visits Kiyone's grave in OVA 3. I love OVA 1's OP as well. "Ryoko's Theme" in OVA 1 is great as well. I didn't care for the OVA 3 incidental music. The OP was OK I guess, but I didn't feel compelled to buy it. I should watch OVA 4's first episode again as the music didn't do anything to be memorable to me.

OVA 1's op and GXP's op and ed are the only ones I've listened to outside of their shows.

Dual has the best op out of anything Kajishima's made.

so it seems the subtitling project is abandoned for now. the subtitler wishes to remain anony moose it seems. uhm if i should take this down just gimme a pm .

rename this file to the same name as your ova video. and play the video with it in the same folder.

this might not seem like  much to the untrained observer but it is a glorious start to the subbign effort and a very very labor intensive creation.  even though all the text isnt there all the place markers are and that is honestly the hardest part of subbing if you ask me. we need to find someone to pick this up and finish it.

Now THIS is how you start things up.  Bonus points given that there are placemarkers there, and as Fap said, all that needs to be done is the remaining translations to be made and then applied to the subtitle file.  The hard work (Timing) is done, all that's left is for those placemarkers to be, well, NOT placemarkers.

Just remember.  Progress is progress, folks.  :goodman:

I am speculating that Minaho is testing Noike, Ryoko, Washu, Sasami, Ryo-Ohki, Mihoshi, and Ayeka to see if each of them are worthly of being one of Tenchi's wives.  Minaho's test is likely a result of a promise which she made to Kiyone as well as a traditional custom.  I can state that the Kuramitsu Family will want Tenchi to married Mihoshi.  The family's reasons for allowing Tenchi to married Mihsohi are mostly political. Still, rest of the reasons are personal.

Noike and Sasami are the best candidates for Tenchi's first wife.  In a way, Noike and Sasami can share the title.

This isn't a bad theory. Jurai's concern about Tenchi had always been about Tenchi's power and his harem's power. Since Minaho works for Seto-sama and Seto-sama has already made her initial investigation trip, then what better way to gain more information than to have Minaho do a deeper investigation without the others being on guard because of Seto-sama's reputation.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: Fap_fapperson on January 22, 2017, 01:44:46 AM
I just wanted to chime in with some theories.

A. mihoshi probably was abducted by a hunter of humans with strange abilities and experimented on and traumatised which is what we saw in ova 3 and it will either probably resolved before the end of ova 5.... which i know.. that could be a decade from now but kajishima said he wanted do a 5th if this one did well.

B.  this ova is pre-seina's return visit to earth, it is pre fuku in fact. the reason widow was in the doujin about this ova and the reason why seina is mentioned so much is because this is right before washu makes fuku, whom in the novels was made with the astral signature of widow who met seina, turned herself in for her genocidal crimes and was executed..

it should be.... i mean yosho had three children with kasumi, mizune is the oldest living decendent of his so mizune has to be one of them, The woman who runs the hot spring is said to be tenchi's great aunt... so noboyuki's mother's sister, and the woman who dropped taro off is either another one of tenchi's aunts or noboyuki's mother, but that would mean their would have to be another woman yet to be revealed who is techi's paternal grandma / fuka's mother :/ and i don't think there is / dont understand why if it was another aunt that the aunt would be dropping off a baby that wasn't hers.

but anyways it seems to me that the marriage is supposed to mirror kiyone's death. everyone in the family gathers for the first time since the last time and that definantly includes the onsen lady.

Is this the old lady from the hot springs?

If Mizune was Yosho's daughter wouldn't Minaho have addressed her as her sister and not Yosho's oldest earth decedant? Or she could just be embarrased that Mizune is related at all.

I think we will see Tenchi's aunt that dropped Taro off, Seina's mother, the onsen lady above, (and obviously Mizune and Fuka) because they are pictured in that doujin as the problematic crusty old hags of the family. (attached the page im refering to.)

but anyways it seems to me that the marriage is supposed to mirror kiyone's death. everyone in the family gathers for the first time since the last time and that definantly includes the onsen lady.

I agree that is the set up it seems. I like Rea, I think her story is interesting and I felt like this OVA was probably going to set out to tie together GXP Novels, WOG, and Tenchi Muyo because the wedding is a pretty important event.
Still hoping for more focus on the Tenchi harem and less on extended family going forward but not really expecting that at this point.

Wow...just...wow. Misaki-sensei writes the best harems (outside of web novels anyway).

Kiriko, Minaho, Minami and now Kiriko's own mom too?!

Seems that Seina really has a way with hot older women.  :heysexy:

Thanks for sharing these! Yep the girls don't seem pleased. As expected. Even if they have gained some self control, I didn't think they would be okay with all this.

I'm waiting ever patiently for the day that we get the raws for all that pre-order artwork.  :shepicide:

Patience.  :neg:

Here is a relatively small image of that sample art I was talking about. Did anyone who ordered vol 1 get these or did you have to get it in stores? I'm not sure I have even seen Ayeka's. I love this art style so much.

Yeah man, I feel like he puts a good amount of effort into doing these pieces. They're within' the realm of his older artwork rather than OVA 4 or anything nearing.

This specific picture here being great, other than the fact that Ryoko obviously hasn't shaven in awhile. She's got crystals growing out of her snatch.

Well it is hevc 10-bit, personally I use mpc-be + madvr + lav filters.

You can probably use Kawaii Codec Pack or K-Lite, which is essentially the same thing...though I think KCP is no longer in development.

I think timing is good for any of the raws available so you can just mux the original subs (.ass file) with whatever you have...or load them through your player after you start the video.

Post by: GP cadet 87 on February 23, 2017, 03:05:48 PM
So just saw the raw for episode 2. One thing I really liked over the first episode is that there is absolutely no filler. The first episode had a nice re-introduction of the cast and setting by having Ryo-ohki wander throughout the house, but it lasted a good minute and a half. It was sweet and nostalgic, but still filler.

Here, you get no dialogue while the OP plays in the background, but new footage. Kai gets a few funny jokes thrown in, and then he's gone.

But what's truly great about this ep is that you have 27 and a half minutes of character interaction; TM's greatest strength as a series (besides the harem antics and cool sci-fi universe) is it's cast of characters, and you get to see A LOT of them talking, joking, reminiscing, flirting ect.

Minaho and the girls, Tsukiko and the Masaki cousins, Ayeka and Ryoko, Rea and the Masaki women talking about Kiyone, Washu and Ryoko, Tenchi's dad and grandfather, Minaho and Noike and of course, Minaho and Tenchi talking throughout the second half of the episode.

Depending on your POV, you may not like the fact that it's just constant exposition and characters playing off one another, but since the writers only had 4 episodes to work with, focusing on the characters and world-building is the best way to go IMO. Since there is so much dialogue this episode, the sub can't get here fast enough.

Might not be back to till late March or early April, since the new GXP novel isn't coming out for awhile and of course the next episode won't be coming till my 30TH BIRTHDAY!! :woot:

It was sweet and nostalgic, but still filler.

I couldn't agree less. Ryo-Ohki goofing around was one of my favorite parts. I think the cozy comfy feel is one of the main attractions, and I think MK agrees with me. Obviously the story and the characters are top 3, but I think the coziness is one of the major components as well. I do not consider Ryo-Ohki trying to wake up Tenchi filler. I consider the extended GXP plug filler, or at least a commercial in the middle of a rather short OVA episode. However, I don't mind that others feel differently. I just wanted to let the record show that some people love that stuff.

As for the second episode, man I'm excited for subs. So much contemplative-seeming dialogue! It's like a play or something! Also, Ryo-Ohki swimming was adorable.

Oh, and...Washu said something to Ryoko... and she SMILED!? DID THAT HAPPEN!?

Don't get me wrong. I LIKED that opening sequence.

It's just, I knew the episode is 30 minutes, not 45 like War on Geminar, so my brain was going HURRY UP AND GET TO THE PLOT! I'm sure once I watch all the episodes back to back, that complaint will be gone.

Like I said earlier, there is A LOT of interesting conversations happening in episode 2. I don't know what was actually said, of course, but I like how everyone gets their own bit of screen time, like that scene on the veranda. I really liked that. The new characters aren't completely overshadowing the main cast.

So I guess it is confirmed that Tsukiko does indeed have a thing for Seina, if her reaction to the teasing is any indication. Geez, as if his harem couldn't get any crazier.  :heysexy:

Also, speaking of Seina, his name sure is popping up a lot. I know this OVA ties into the GXP novels, especially the part where Seina has just gone into space and everyone is still reacting to that, but it really seems like the writers really want to promote the GXP novels.

Hey, we can all hope for a reboot, right?

I am starting to feel that OVA 4 is more like a movie.  My feeling is primary due to the fact that OVA 4 is going to  have only four episodes.  Oddly,  the first two episodes are a little like OVA 2's first two episodes.

As I watch the raw version of the second episode, I notice what seems to be the producers seem to forget that the carrot fields are located somewhere else.  The fields behind the Masaki Residence are terrace.  I am puzzled over the setting.

The onsen furo has been moved.  The onsen furo was floating above the lake.  Now, the onsen furo looks almost like a large furo greenhouse.  Yet, the onsen furo is more larger than it looks from outside the house.  It reminds me of the Doctor's TARDIS.

OVA 4 will focus around the events of Nobuyuki's and Rea's wedding.  The raw version of episode 2 is a little confusing.  I have to wait for the subs to find out what everyone is talking about.

It turns out that it was Kai, Seina and Tenchi's buddy from childhood, who was trying to sneak some condoms in his bag, not Tenchi, so don't get too excited guys.

I like how shamelessly perverted he is, it's a refreshing contrast to Tenchi and Seina, since they are so easily flustered around women.

Yea, I didn't even think to ask for honorifics. But if I was going to be using fandom services for any other volumes I was going to do so. As far as volume 2, since she is paying for it entirely, it will be up to her preferences but I did ask which she preferred, but haven't received a response.

I'm thinking about going through vol 1 and adding the honorifics - but was hoping someone else was going to do it, plus don't really have all that much time on my hands for the next month or 2.

I'm thinking about going through vol 1 and adding the honorifics - but was hoping someone else was going to do it, plus don't really have all that much time on my hands for the next month or 2.

And the squeaky wheel gets greased!

Awesome. Grabbed those. I plan on rewatching this week.

Also, I'm thinking I need to become more educated on the GXP novels. Watching this episode, I'm pretty sure Kajishima-sensei expects viewers to have read the GXP novels up to a certain point. I remember there was discussion on where precisely in the GXP novels episode 1 took place.

when do we start funding the 2nd ep?

I was planning on waiting a bit, not as long as I waited on Vol. 1.  it also seems more people are interested in contributing this time around...but I think I'm hoping somewhere deep down, now that vol 1 has been sub someone/group will pick up the rest.

Scratch that - I just got an email from someone that wanted to contribute last time but missed it, she is contacting fandom services and going to fund the entire thing herself. :bravo:

I wish I had medals to give out :neg:

I'm rewatching episode one. I get the feeling that Ringo's visit to Minaho is strictly about finances. Ringo mentions that Seina is generating massive revenue, I presume due to his anti-pirate abilities to allow Jurai to capture lots of pirates and loot. However, they start talking about the numbers not adding up and why Minaho assigned work to Kiriko rather than Seina. At that point, I've no freaking clue what they are yammering on about. I presume it is something that came up in the GXP novels. Do any of you guys understand the full context of that conversation?

Also, what is the Hyena Corps?

Rather than earning revenue from capturing pirates it sees more like Jurai's economy is doing better because there are fewer pirates interfering with shipping.

It's the nickname for Seto's female assistants and retainers.
She keeps them busy, so most of them don't have an opportunity to start or maintain a relationship, so they end up desperate and aggressive, hence Hyena.
Otoka, the long haired Masaki girl sent with Minaho, is notable for having a boyfriend, one of the guards aboard the Mikagami, which pisses off the other girls to no end.

Ok, I downloaded episode 2 pretty damn quick, but the file isn't loading with Vuze media player. Any suggestions? I downloaded the plug-in already.

For any playback issues - the easiest solution - while not the best quality, but still better than Vuze/VLC/and the like - is to probably just download and install the latest K-Lite Standard and play using mpc-hc.

True - Ecchi just posted his on nyaa as well with his altered subs with honorifics - I believe is 8bit/x264/flac - so could be more system friendly for you.

AIRI'S AN ABUSIVE MOM!?

Yeah, i guess that's whats implied. Its strange though as she doesn't seem to be the type to due such a thing. She maybe a bit overwhelming ,but always seemed to have a good heart in the past.  She was really kind to sena and seem to a care about all the girls in gxp. Based on Minaho comments i suspect the experiments might have had something to do with the creation of the enhancement procedure gxp cadets have to go through  when they begin to train at the academy. The reason i speculate this is because Minaho exclaims that it made her body more powerful. She seems fond of scars i think because she believes the results that they got  from the experiments was a contribution for the greater good.  They way it was done though was probably not the most ethical way. She might have had the experiments done when she was a child and so she had no chance to agree to the experiments. I suspect this might be the case also because she mentioned she grew up at the academy which i suspect is where these test took place.  The rift  between them was most likely caused by the fact that she felt used. Despite that she still seems to care about her mother based on her comments in the first episode about feeling bad that no one seems to be on her side.  This whoever is just a theory.

Thank you for your appreciation. I am glad i could contribute to the community. 
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: Tsundere89 on March 10, 2017, 02:03:23 AM
I will admit I have been a bit pissed off that they have thrown out the gxp anime and are going off the light novels. I feel screwed over because we don't have access to the material and they know that all the past anime series have made there way to the west. So, now the show has become kind of confusing. I know we are not the primary target audience, but by doing this i think they will lose money on the  western market which is really sad.  I am also confused about what minaho role is.  Is she going after tenchi as a possible marriage candidate for herself and she is making her move on tenchi in a more subtle way or is she tying to be a mother figure to tenchi.  Also, what did she actually mean when she said she was going to make him hers.  She stated out right that she has decided she was going to take tenchi, kiyone son for herself and asked tenchi if she would be hers.  The way she said it sound more like she was referring to it in a romantic sense but maybe she was meaning that she just wanted to spend the day with him.  If the producers are hinting that she is subtle after him that would explain the whole scene about her sleeping in the same room with tenchi and having ryoki join them (which is odd since she always sleeps with sasami.) You see traditional in Japanese culture fathers would often sleep on the floor while the mother and child would sleep together in the child's early years. Basicly this is what a married couple would do if they had a child (ryoki represents the child in this case) which makes me wonder if they are hinting at her actually being after him as a suitor.  On the other hand she could just be doting on him and being motherly towards him as nobiuki suggested. What i find also interesting is tenchi interaction with minaho.  He seems to blush a ton when around her which he has never done much with any of the other girls.  What’s your guys thoughts?

I was asked by Tsundere89 to put the subs up on nyaa that she solely funded(Thanks again!). And I suppose I could have accomplished that by just posting the .ass file as it was...but It wasn't timed correctly to the bluray rips and had some obvious typos such as names being misspelled.... i.e. Tench

My post on nyaa is anything but 'freaking huge' at just over 500mb - it is a very justifiable size for a 30min episode and is in fact the smallest release for episode 02 and pretty good quality.
In my description I clearly say - in the very first statement - that the encode is my personal encode, so use the subs with another video source if you have issues with mine or just don't like it.
I could have included a .ass file separately but it seemed to cause some confusion last time, so if someone needed just the script but was unsure how to extract all they had to do was ask, and I'm sure someone would have provided.

Ecchi's release is large but will probably be compatible with just about anything plus has honorifics and some fixed translations. Which mine, as of yet, does not.

So a little less disdain and a little more appreciation would be nice.

It was considerate of you to provide everyone with the files above. Thank you.

I'm sorry to come off as snippy. your video glitched on me after i downloaded and so i had to spend like a half an hour extracting the subs and getting a better non china subbed raw off of youtube (that was the hard part). i was a bit flummoxed over it. if i wasn't walking around with subtitling and hardsubbing the other day i wouldn't have been able too and frankly i haven't had any issues with them before now because i've just been using .ass files with my raws. :/ i think it's kind of funny actually that the first episode was soft coded by both the first time  and both of yall subbing this time did a hard coded version.

but i have seen people complaining about "meme codexs" on 4chan and places. i was being half sarcastic when i posted that.

but yeah subbing is a bitch and a half. ur a better person than i for dicking with it. I tried early on then gave up until you got the tilt funded X_X

oh wow i went back and opened up the original and it played... maybe my computer just wonked out...

Watched episode 2 w/ subs (and thanks for those fixed ones with the Japanese honorifics, though there were a couple of misses). I'll write a full review later, but some quick thoughts. I loved the episode, mainly because I understood most of the references going on. I really found myself getting emotional at the end of the episode when Minaho mentioned to Tenchi that they'd probably leave Earth. One of the doujinshi (I think 21st Century, but I'm too tired to go look) talked about Tenchi and the harem leaving Earth for Jurai after Sasami graduated from high school. I never understood why Tenchi would leave Earth. Now it all makes sense.

I loved seeing Onsen-obaasama show up (they gave her a name, though I didn't write it down) and take control of the situation with Minaho's staff and Kai's mom. I'm so glad she returned.

I was shocked by the experimentation Airi performed on Minaho. That came out of nowhere. Or at least, I don't remember anything like this ever coming up before. I wish we knew more about why.

Katsuhito's seiyuu did a great job.

Really AstroNerdboy?? You first thank the person who added the honorifics and then criticize them for missing a few???  First off how about you be grateful that you have ANY subs in the first place! Secondly, if you see something like that then inform the person so that they can correct it.  Don't criticize the person that put the work and time into it.

Now, now lass. Did I not teach you better than that?  ;)

Now, as you learned in class, the whole subject of using Japanese phrases in subs is a knotty one. They are not needed at all, but some fans like the aesthetic. Linguistically, they make my teeth rattle, and I'd not get much translation work if I kept throwing in 'sans', 'samas', 'chans' and so on into academic or professional texts.

HOWEVER, that's the culture in which we live.

Now, on one hand considering you did put down paper for the whole episode it might be argued that picking a few linguistic nits was not a charitable way to recognize your sacrifice, but going full Ryoko on this is going to do your heart no good...... :D

Seriously though, chuck... You made this possible, and the translator did a bang up job in the time they took. I'd have preferred not to see ANY unnecessary Japanese terms in an English translation - as proper terms exist for all these words - but, as I say that is the Fandom in which we live. It has been this way since the late 80s. It is part of the cachet of being Otaku, I suppose.

That's the key here. We are all someone else to someone else and our experiences are different. I doubt I was any different, back in the 80s, when I was all pith, vinegar and full on Weab. Now, hen pecked and strapped to an office deck at my Uni, the anime has peeled off Japan - but not the charm.

No need to get bent out of shape, there's nothing wrong with a little light criticism.  Tho it would be best to cite the lines missed, so they can be fixed in a later release.

Watched episode 2 w/ subs (and thanks for those fixed ones with the Japanese honorifics, though there were a couple of misses).

I'm the same EcchiOujisama that fixed the subs. It certainly dropped fast as compared to the first one and didn't get my usual INTJ 20x anal inspection before being released. It's just me doing it, there's no QC team cleaning up after me when I mistype and my brain sees what it meant to put there. There are threads on this very board for both episodes. If you see something that needs to be fixed in either one, definitely let me know. If you have an issue with a translation choice/change I make I will want you to make the case for it based on the Japanese and not how it may read in English. Stylistically I generally err on the side of being literal.

A few fixes have been made that haven't been released yet. In episode 1 I fixed a few things in Airi's first scene that still didn't feel right. In episode 2 the while while typo has been fixed and one inconsequential word was changed during the pillow talk at the end to sound a little better to an English ear(get to adulthood from the original subs changed to reached adulthood). If you see something else, I want to know about it in the appropriate thread. 

@Tsundere89 I do not get butthurt easily so there is no need to get all tsun tsun on my account. I can't fix issues if I don't know they're there. If anything I'm bothered by the fact that I started threads on this very forum stating that I did those subs, they are 2 of the top 3 topics on this very forum right now, and you guys are still talking about me like I'm not even here. Much like my ex, you really know how to make a guy feel appreciated. (T_T)

I don't think they are. I don't think he marries 20 women either.  He might have 20 women who have the hots for him but as far as i know he still marries the original 4 girls in light novels. I  have not been able to read the LN because they are in japanese ,but based on the cover of vol 14 i think its safe to assume that he marries the main 4 girls for sure.  Kajishima Masaki if doujinshi also implies that he only marries the 4.  From what i read i think the girls are supposed to play some part in helping counteract Senias bad luck.  Washu made a chart about it which can be seen on Sena Yamadia wiki page.

In the IF doujins Seina also seems married to Gyokuren, Suiren, Hakuren, and Karen. The three accountants, however, are definitely not Seina's love interests, let alone future wives.

Also, I'm sure Airi used her research to strengthen Minaho while she was in hiding/exile at the academy. The thing I said about abuse was a joke! A joke!

Gyokuren was in If 2 & 3, Karen was in 3, Suiren and Hakuren weren't visible but they are a quartet so I think it's inferred. They didn't have any kids in the current IFs but given MK's history and their presence at the Yamada home in IF I think it's safe to assume they become official harem members, but anything is possible, I suppose.

They also could just be part of his crew.  They were shown to be in the last episode of the anime.  vol 14 of the light novels out.  To bad i can't read japanese otherwise i would read for clarification.  This picture makes me think they just might be part of the crew. If they were his wives i think they would be shown more. Also now that sena is a member of the royal family they would most likely not be high enough in class status to marry him.  Like you said though who knows

yeah i read through its actualy one of the only ones i have read through besides paradise war 3. and i was surprised at just how much of it was legible although much of whats written in it is hard to grasp because of how foreign the new characters added in are. its hard to grasp when they talk about original plot lines and characters without any reference. liek acha is the wau girl. and it goes alot into kirche and d  and miki being from DUAL! and seina being kazuki.

...he saw Kiriko, Amane, Ryoko, Neeju in a wedding dress looking at him and smiling...."


     "Fuku who cute pretty from behind the screen came popping out. Subsequently Miki clones are decorated similar to Fuku and appear."

if you consider fuku to have been married to him as well then this means fuku miki D and kirche as cabbits are all also married to him.

    "Besides the wedding ceremony, I will publicly announce that Kamidake has officially become a ship of Seina, and the Miki's will be introduced in the form of a backup terminal, mainly with Fuku-chan, and then maybe their maker Who knows? "
 
    "are you going to anounce Washu-san's survival?"
    "Well, there are also a lot of people who already know, so it's not like it will a big mess to......"
    

    "By the way, like Airi ...... What happened to Hakuren, I have not heard anything from Seto?"
    "They are officially scheduled to be a part of the Kamidake's crew, but at this time will not be announced as members of the crew crew. "



---------

"Here, Mizune.Ringo does not disturb you"
    "Ouch, it hurts! Do not pull my ears!"
     It is a bit boyish MasakiOtoka that musically pulls Masaki Mizune's ears while lifting blood vessels in temple.
    "You, Mr. Ringo, do not disturb"
     It was Masaki Fuuka, which seems to be the oldest, with a calm feeling.
     As these surname, these three people are officials of the Earth, Masaki village.
------
Ringo answered while watching the numbers in front of me. What Ringo is doing now is Seina's wedding budget management. It manages dubious expenses and instructs subordinates the proper price negotiation.


---------------

so they do appear with ringo. in the last volume after all. ringo is pretty happy that seina caught tarrant because that means he got another massive payoff. but no they are not married to him they do seem to be his accountant quartet though.
----------------
Quote
"so we will take care of the wedding reception of Yamada family, Jurai Masaki family, Kaunaq family, Balta family, Melmas family."

-----
    On Kamidake 's bridge, Kiriko and Fuku clones wearing a wedding dress are staring at the spy ship where Hakuren' s on the main monitor 's radar looks as if they were parent enemies.
    "But I do not really understand the motive,"
     The humanoid Miki is a bracelet with his arms folded.
----------
at one point tenchi goes well their 2nd teir candidates for marrying seina, i guess we shouldn't be that worried about them kidnapping him and seto reveals she wanted them to marry seina to  but i am not sure if they actually do it.

i guess we will find out in gxp 15.

I knew i shouldnt have paraphrased those last two things
Quote
"... ... shall we see the situation for a while longer?"
     Tenchi gave a small sigh to that scene.
     Thinking about it, they are Seina's Shu's next wife's candidate. It is not a burning atmosphere, so I do not need to worry too much. Tenchi began to eat like the power came out.


Quote
   "Seto, you knew?"
     Utsutsumi glares at Seto which is sharp. Airi, Mikami, and Tsukiko are also staring at other places to hurt Seto.
    "Of course I knew, but I did not think that I would do it today."

Quote
   "Their original purpose was Imperial Tree, I guess they wanted Kondo's vs. space pirates, because the lower-generation Imperial Tree seems to be used for that humanoid weapon."

Quote
"but seina has ZINV, is that the purpose of kidnapping?"
    "But will it be the same if we marry Seina?"
    "... ... So is it a rush job?"
  if you marry Seina, there is no problem, ZINV, Kamidake, Kiriko's Rui Shine can also be used against space pirate strength. Nevertheless, having kidnapped Seina is that Hakuren can not do it or urgently, there is some reason.
    "I can not imagine that Hakuren's ship will escape from Kamidake so easily, for the time being, it will be fun for a while ... ... let's see the situation."

its mostly all gibberish i know. basicly i think it's something like, hakuren would have access to seina and zinv anyways since she was also planning to marry them off to seina but they were supposed to be his second wave of wifes. hakuren couldn't keep to that time schedule though and kidnapped him because it was urgent.


by marrying them it gives them a reason to go and get involved with renza stuff, and it gives jurai ties to renza her goal is galactic unification she want to end all the piracy and international conflict, don't forget she is naja, naja and washu basicly suffered greatly because unstable relations between jurai and seiniwa and it's implied that this is a problem that many people suffered from like airi and the refugees from seiniwa's isolation, so basicly she snuck herself into the royal family took over and is marrying people left and right to unify shit. around the time of paradise war everyone's agreed to just wage harmless proxy battles, and those who secretly don't are all  lured to earth to be captured. :/ atleast thats what I got out paradise war three.

Now for bed!

Really AstroNerdboy?? You first thank the person who added the honorifics and then criticize them for missing a few???  First off how about you be grateful that you have ANY subs in the first place! Secondly, if you see something like that then inform the person so that they can correct it.  Don't criticize the person that put the work and time into it. It makes you sound like a perfectionist jerk.

All I will say about this is that because I had been up for 24 hours, I didn't make use of emoji like I tend to do for when I write. Thus what was intended to be a simple jab joke was blown up into something it was not. Had I thrown in the wink emoji like I would normally do when I make a joking jab where I'm not being serious, I don't think there would have been a problem. This remark was intended to be a lighthearted gesture, nothing more. Take that for what its worth. I have spoken privately to Ecchi about this and what I've said here publicly is all I am going to say on the matter as I consider it closed. :)

Where did we get the name Tarou for the child that Tenchi and company took care of in OVA 2 episode 1? I see the name is referenced in the original Japanese Masaki family tree. Yet in this episode, the child is called "Sawa-chan." Is it possible that the original reading of the kanji of the infant's name was wrong?
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: EcchiOujisama on March 14, 2017, 09:07:18 AM
I thought this was weird too and assumed it must have been explained in a novel or doujin somewhere. We got the name Tarou from the episode itself. Clicking through the episode quickly to double check Sasami clearly says Tarou-chan in the original Japanese so it wasn't like it was made up in the dub.  Speaking of family trees, with all of the new characters it might be nice if someone with image editing skills (which is not me, at all) brought this one up to date.

FYI: This PDF (from my site) is a translation from the Japanese family tree that was done after OVA 3 and is more up to date than the one TigerCow did, which has the graphics (and is the one you shared).

http://tenchi.astronerdboy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/tenchi_ova_relation20091227.pdf

But even the translated Japanese one is out of date as it considers Rea a descendant of the Masaki family on Earth rather than be an alien from Geminar.

Hmmm...interesting. Somewhere before OVA4 I got the impression that Tsukiko was Kai's mom, but it looks like Kai and Kiriko actually have no parents in common.

Unless I missed it even yours doesn't have the things I was trying to figure out, that being how Fuka, Otoka and Mizune fit into Kiriko's part of the family tree, and trying to draw a straight line for Mizune being Yosho's great granddaughter. The kanji suggest that she isn't Tenchi's daughter from the future or Tennyo's daughter from a dalliance in her 50s or 60s.

I haven't looked for an updated Japanese version in years, unfortunately. But yeah, the PDF I put out from the Japanese source came shortly after OVA 3 was released in Japan. So it didn't have updated information from the GXP novels, but as you noted, it does mention Tsukiko has had two husbands and is apparently not Kai's mother. I don't know where that's established. The curse of being a Western fan. ^_^;
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on March 14, 2017, 03:36:46 PM
I am a little puzzle over the branch of the Masaki Family where Nobuyuki is from.  According to Astronerdboy's blog,  Fuuka, Otoka, and Mizune are from the same branch which Kiriko and her brother Kai are connected to.  Tuskiko seems to be Fuuka's, Otoka's , and Mizune's sister.  Tsukiko is a member of the same branch where Fuuka, Otoka, and Mizune are from.

Minaho tells Tenchi of what happen to two sisters who happen to be twins.  From the raw edition, it seems that the two sisters are fraternal twins.  One of the twins have died of old age. It was likely that the twin sister who had died may have lived a long life.  Tenchi's great aunt is one of the family's important elders. She is deeply involved in the preparations of Rea's and Nobuyuki's wedding.  The age of Tenchi's great Aunt is over two hundred and forty years.  Nobuyuki's age is supposedly over 200 years.

I do believe that there are more descendants of Yosho/Katsuhito  and his first wife Katsumi.  Yosho/Katsuhito  may have another wife or two after Kasumi's death.  When it comes to the focus on Tenchi's family in OVA 4, the present focus is on three of the branches of the Masaki Family Tree.  The branch where Fuuka, Otoka, and Mizune are from uses the Misaki surname.

I sense a hint of the future.  Minaho seems to be pressure into getting married.  If Minaho gets married, she will likely ask Tenchi for a marriage arrangement between one of her children and Tenchi's.   The children who are likely involved in the probable betrothal are one of Minaho's daughters and one of Tenchi's sons.  According to the timeline is Astronerdboy's blog, Tenchi's first children are likely going to be twins.  It is likely that Tenchi's oldest son may be betrothed to one of Minaho's daughters.   If OVA 4 is a success, there may be a strong chance for a sequel.  My tentative title for the sequel is TENCHI MUYO- THE NEXT GENERATION.

I was rewatching episode 2 last night. I need to watch again 'cause I didn't get that those two were fraternal twins. It seemed like it was comparing a person of Juraian descent (possibly Kiyone) and a normal human girl she befriended. I also wondered if it might be Tennyo as in OVA 3, Tennyo was going to a school class reunion and was going to have to use an elderly disguise.

Also, when I got the information for the FAQ on Mizune, it was that she was descended from Kasumi. But I noticed that the episode indicates that Mizune is descended from Funaho. That would not discount Mizune coming from Kasumi as Yosho is Funaho's son. However, it made me wonder how the other two girls would be lesser in House Masaki than Mizune if they too are Masaki and descended from Kasumi.

This might be covering some already covered ground but i thought i throw in my two cents in terms of explaining the Misaki line. 

Azusa crashed on earth after a fight with the space pirate kagato(yes this is the same Kagato tenchi fought and killed) As a result of the crash Azusa becomes injured. He then comes across Funaho, and her family and is nursed back to health by Funaho. They fall in love and he takes her back to juri to become his first wife.  Many years later during the battle with Ryoko on Earth, Yosho saved his mother's niece, Kasumi, from the space pirate. Afterwards, Yosho married Kasumi. He took the name Katsuhito Masaki and became the Shinto priest of the Masaki Shrine. With Kasumi, Yosho bore at least two children. His descendants along that line include Nobuyuki Masaki, Kenshi Masaki (also his step-grandson), Kiriko Masaki, and her young brother Kai. After Kasumi died, Katsuhito married Airi in a common law marriage. Together, they became the parents of a second daughter, Kiyone Masaki. Nobuyuki and Kiyone married and gave birth to a son, Tenchi.  There has also been no indication  that i have seen that indicates that minaho will get married and that her children will marry tenchi children. If the Tenchi Muyo if dojinshi are anything to go by his children will go on to marry sena children instead.   In OVA 4 episode 2 they discuss how mizune  is Yosho great great granddaughter as well as Kasumi great great granddaughter.  Not only is mizune related to Funaho through both yosho and kasumi blood ties from both sides ,but she also as a result has a direct blood line to the juraian royal family through yosho. As a result like they state in the episode this makes her have one of the strongest pure blood tie to the jurai royal family among yosho distant descendants.  Also, as far as i know Tsukiko Masaki is kiriko mother and since kai is kiriko brother i assume it is her son as well. I could be mistaken about this.  Also, i have seen no evidence of yosho having more than two wives. As far as i know Airi seems to be the only wife he has ever had.

Finally watched the second episode, that was an adorable scene at the end of Ryoko stating she belong wherever Tenchi is.

I'm really interested where this OVA is going now, IF makes it seem like Tenchi still won't leave anytime soon, but I'm wondering what Minaho will wind up doing, she seems to really want to be apart of the household, almost as if she feels its a debt she owes Tenchi for not being there.


At first I always thought that OVA 3 happened like a year before GXP, but now I get the vibe GXP actually starts DURING the OVA 3 timespan. You could really the first half of GXP right before OVA episode 20 it seems.

OVA 3 +1 is where we get the big time skip. So OVA 4 happens during GXP and GXP kicks off after the initial events of OVA 3 +1 but before the still shots of Nobuyuki's and Rea's wedding.

 gxp and ova 3 both start in the same summer season of the year so gxp takes place shortly after the time reset. it's september  as indicated by the calendar in ova 4 episode 1  widow still haven't been put to death and tsukiko hasn't said anything about her feelings for seina yet and mizune fuka and otoka haven't actually met seina in person yet which they definately do. also judging from ryo-ohki waking tenchi up and the carrot fields already being optimized as well as mikami going into her young form one can assume that this ova takes place around volume 6 of gxp which is right  around episode 11 of gxp and fuku hasn't been born yet.

I thought that Seina getting the application took place during when everyone was dealing with the Operation Lovey Dubby bullshit.

Which is why no one was at the house when Seina showed up.

GXP begins around episode five of OVA3, IIRC. Mihoshi says something about a 'pamphlet', which would be the application Amane left with Seina. Figure in each semester around six months and it'd be safe to say at least six months have passed since Seina left for space and Seina makes his first return from space. So you've got a good six month window to work with. At least by my estimate.

its definantly got to be around lovey dovy. again. ova 3 starts at the begining if the rainy season. google that. it begins eight before japanise school lets out for the summer. gxp novles 1 to 3 is about 3 weeks... gxp 2 is literaly one night gxp 3 is one a few days max. but around 6 is a few months all of gxp is said to be two years... but like how tho its 1 at most tbh but they say two i think in gxp 14. but ova 4 takes place in the 9th month of the year. school lets out on third monday of july he left shortly before that its been 2 months at most

Given the sound of the cicada,  the first episode of GXP had occurred during the summer.   GXP's first episode had occurred before summer vacation.  Siena's family was given a prize. The prize was a vacation to a resort. 

OVA 4 takes place around Nobuyuki's and Rea's wedding. The wedding will be seen in episode 4.  Now, I do wished that OVA 4 had two additional episodes.  One of the two additional episodes could have focus on a visit by Mihoshi's parents and both sets of grandparents.  If there is going to be an OVA 5,  I will think that one of the episodes has to focus on Mihoshi's family.  Mihoshi's family will make a visit to Earth to announce the news of the Kuramitsu Family Council allowing Tenchi to become Mihoshi's fiance.  Of course, one of the reasons for Mihoshi's engagement to Tenchi is going to be connected to politics.

It will be funny that Mihoshi's father Nakita Kuramitsu is related to the Seniwan Royal family.   This will likely mean that Mihoshi's paternal grandmother happens to be the Empress of the Seniwan Empire. If Nakita is related to the Seniwan Royal Family, the Empress is more likely his grandnmother.

it straight up says in the novel it's the rainy season.
there should definitely be more a ton of stuff about mihoshi's family in ova 5. considering the gxp volumes after fuku comes in have so much to do with them and washu and mikumo's "death" and we know that by volume 11 mihoshi is receiving treatment for her mental condition. we also know shank attacks seina's family and gets his ass handed to him by tenchi shortly before seina visits earth which means its likely to show up in ova 4 because seinas visit is right after it.

as for nakita... does seiniwan royalty even matter? the kuramitsus are basicly the shoguns of seiniwa. i know in the novels nakita ends up getting a lot more responsibility and clout in the family by the end of it. and they definitely still need to formally say who Taima is because as far as i can tell they never do in book

I do believe that there is a Seniwan Royal family .   The Kuramitsu Family will share  power with the Seniwan Royal Family.  The Seniwans do dominate the Galaxy Poilce and its division the Galaxy Army.  At the present time, the Kuramitsu family is the most powerful family in the Seniwan Empire.  If there is a Seniwan Royal Family, they will not be treated as puppets of the Kuramitsu Family.


The name of the village near Tenchi's place is call the Masaki Village.  Some residents of Masaki Village are related to the Masaki family.  There are two branches of the  Masaki Familiy. The first branch is the branch where Funaho has come from. The members of the second branch  are directly related to Yosho and his first wife Kasumi. 

Minaho was comparing the lives of two childhood friends when she was talking to Tenchi.  One of the childhood friends is a Masaki. The second friend is a normal human.  Tennyo may be one of the two childhood friends.

I watched the episode and yah I noticed the major difference in the characters personalitys, I miss them :(

First half I forgot I was even watching Tenchi Muyo :/

Did we have a time skip from the last episode???

While I liked GXP I have to admit I'm getting annoyed now with all the talk of it. If I wanted to see that I'd just rewatch the series again, I wanted to see Tenchi and his harem.

And am confused about the timeline. What's the point in having the next Ova about the wedding we pretty much saw in the last Ova???

I hope the next episode is about the harem itself....

I finally watched the two episodes on youtube so I am probably late to the party. Kinda likes it even if the characters past a bit too much think just talking. I kinda like the relation between Minaho and Tenchi and I can't wait to see what is going to happen next.

Sorry if that was ask before (too lazy read 37 pages), but is the purple haired woman who is the kinda a punching bag to the two other introduced women also Taro's mother? That wasn't clear for me. Also that guy at the beginning of episode 2 is the same guy who will marry Seina's sister, right?

surprisingly she isn't taro's mother. her old mentions in the doujin seemed to imply otoka was taro's mother but that never made any sense. but that black haired girl is clearly kasumi... who would be taro's mother.

They have more, albeit tiny, preview images on their website, including the wedding photo from OVA3 but in the new guy's style. The episode summary says something, I think, about how Nobuyuki and Reia first met. Well, I guess that's obvious from the new character art of young Reia straight from Geminar.

Neat!

for everyone complaining about seina being name dropped left and right: this is being done because all these drops reference points in the books and the books are very detailed in how much time has passed since siena left so by having all the name drops you can tell exactly when ova 4 takes place in comparison to the books.  OVA 4 is probably the most date dropping segment of the ova so far actually and importantly so, it's technically a retcon of the last 7 minutes of ova 3...  in ova 4 they still do not know that noike is kagato. or anything that happened after the wedding segment in the special episode.

The gxp books not only go into seina and his life but actually quite often change viewpoint over to tenchi and even more so to washu and contains references to OVA 4 and maybe even OVA 5 and beyond if not outright containing parts of them that he just decided to novelize like  mikamo's "Death". they take place over two years... and that's two years starting from the time reset in GXP ...

gxp starts in july and ova 4 starts in september and takes place over only a few days. ... gxp TAKES PLACE OVER TWO YEARS and ova 4 is only 3 months at most into gxp.
and most episodes of tenchi have covered a month to a half a month of time at most.
that means GXP shows stuff happening to tenchi's family up for to 21 months... that means it can potentially be used to set the time line for at least the next 21 episodes after ova 4 if not more....

potentially we should be able to figure out exactly when to expect key elements of the story by the time i'm done reading through and doing my best to fix these broke ass google translated versions of the gxp books. things like mihoshi getting fixed, what's going to happen in ova 5, when does seto realise she is naja. and most importantly when the hell does ryoko get tenchi's blazer / when do they get married

the name drops are important


Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: Fap_fapperson on April 16, 2017, 02:16:18 AM
by the way i checked last night. volume 6 of gxp  is episode 10 of gxp the anime where shank's arm is messed up and he said he failed to hold the yamada's hostage this is also when  mikami turns into sexy mikami for the first time and right before fuku is born and in volume 5 they say its been 2 months since miki died which should be the first major time skip in the series and would put the timeline up to right before where OVA 4 should begin. so that means OVA 5 is going to be one wild ass ride...if we get it

Azusa's mama's name's Amame, and his dad's name is, coincidentally, Yotsuga Kazuki. (Masaki Kajishima just likes the name, it's a play on his own name that I don't understand.)

Known as the "Sword of Seto", Hirata Kanemitsu is the 7th holy defense fleet commander, one of Seto's "Thirteen Divine Admirals", substituting for his wife Yuzaki who was on maternity leave at the time. Seto don't need no bodyguard.

*Notices Seto*  UH OH.  Craziness launch detected.  Betcha that episode 3 is gonna be NUTS.  In a fun way.  And this is when I thought that OVA 4 couldn't outdo itself by much more in the crazy department (Really enjoyed the first 2 episodes by the way - the story driven tone of this OVA has been handled especially nicely I must note).

But the real $1,000,000 question... given that we're getting the wedding which has pretty much been the main plot point of OVA 4 so far, what's episode 4 gonna be?  It's gonna get VERY interesting, methinks...

In postimage 085,  there is  new character on Mikami's left.  By the way which the character looks, he seems to be a male.   By the way which Tennyo is arguing with Airi,  Airi may be working with Lady Seto on arranging  a marriage between the male character and Tennyo.  Since Tennyo seems to be aware who the male is, she is not happy with Lady Seto's choice.  Now, I wondering who is the new male character. He does have a connection with Tennyo.

OVA 4 is likely the last OVA series for the TENCHI MUYO: RYO-OHKI series.  Now I am wondering if there is going to be an OVA 5. I am looking for the raw version of OVA 4's third episode. Now, it seems that Tenchi is going to have a brother-in-law in the future.

That guy was in a GXP doujin. He's Tennyo's coworker and love interest. I've been waiting for more of this guy since like 2002 or whenever. Maybe now we'll get to see his personality.

Since Tennyo has a boyfriend, Airi is likely too eager for Tennyo and her boyfriend to get marry.   If Tennyo's boyfriend is a member of the Masaki Family, he should be a descendant of the branch where Funaho is from.  Yet, Tennyo's boyfriend can still come from the branch where Nobuyuki is from.

From the first two OVA 4 episodes which I have seen, it seems that Tenchi and Tennyo are the only two children of Nobuyuki and Kiyone.  Episode two had pointed  out that Kiyone had hated the ideal of traveling to Earth sometime after  she married Nobuyki.  Kiyone had met Nobuyuki when the two were at the Galaxy Police Academy. 

Now, I want to speculate that Katsuhito/Yosho has another wife who is still living.  In order to help him to keep his disguise, it would be reasonable for Katsuhito to get remarried sometime after the death of his first wife Kasumi.  Katsuhito could still  have married a Masaki widow to help him maintain his disguise.  The ideal of Katsuhito having a second wife who is still living will cause Katsuhito to have an occasional headache esp. during one of Airi's visits to Earth.  As of OVA 4's time, Katsuhito has only two known wives Kasumi and Airi.

I am eager to watch the raw version of OVA 4's episode 3 as well as the translated one.  From the image in Ryo-Okay's topic, Rea is serving Tennyo first as part of the Masaki family customs.  By the time of War of Geminar, Tenchi is going to have a brother-in-law and is an Uncle.

I doubt that Tenchi grandpa has another wife. There seems to be no mention of it or any indication of it.  As for Tennyo's love interest name i have no freaking clue! I never knew he existed! Are we sure they are going out or are they just currently dancing around the issue of potentially becoming a couple?  Also, if Aria is determined to marry ANYBODY off, it would be her daughter Minaho! It's made pretty clear throughout episode 1 and 2 that her parents and her family are not happy about the fact that she is not married yet.  Personally, i wouldn't be shocked if Minaho decided to claim Tenchi for herself.  It sounds unlikely but it could happen! Yosho himself married his maternal aunt after all.

     Hiroshi ran to the NB and looked at it fairly. Like a rough engraved sculpture, it was not as great as identifying anyone, but Hiroshi sensed the atmosphere of Miki there.
    "I will explain"
     A man who was with Tennyo ran from Tsukiko 's aft passage running while wearing a dust - free cloth for research.
    "I am sorry, I was late."
     And the man who grew that stubble grasped Hiroshi 's hand gladly.

Thanks for that, Fap. (Comma placement is important.)

As for Tennyo's love interest name i have no freaking clue! I never knew he existed! Are we sure they are going out or are they just currently dancing around the issue of potentially becoming a couple? 

Imagine our surprise at the time when it was pointed out that Tennyo had been first revealed in that doujin before her appearance in OVA 3. Those were the days...

Oh, and a contemporaneous translation of the page indicated that they weren't shacked up yet. I've forgotten who was hesitant.

i was on 2ch yesterday looking through their archives of tenchi posts. it seems gxp the novels is more or less following the outline version that kajishima handed them. and nebeshin looked at it and said basically there's no way i can make this commercially viable without massive edits there's too much going on here for 26 episodes. and he wanted to make it more of a comedy and an agreement was reached so he could do the show his way and kajishima could release it properly as novels. hence why all this stuff is in the gxp doujins and why all of gxp the anime has most the things in the books still stealthily implied as happening... nabeshin just cut out whatever he bloody well wanted to and cut out most of the dual! related parts rendering the story rather... confusing. all so he could inject himself into the show... also things were cut in attempts to minimize ova 3 spoilers... hell the end of gxp makes 0 sense with nabeshins cuts. in the novels the conflict with the gp military and the rest of the gp is brought up right around where episode 10 of the anime starts...  in the anime it just comes from no where gets no explaination...

Seriously though, I know that Zinv and Geminar are part of the canon, but they're potentially (I say potentially for the same reasons as Ricin, and that's because no subs yet) connecting so much stuff together in one episode that I just HAD to make the reference.  And the crazy thing is, there's still one episode left.  Certainly, it can't get any crazier than this...

...or can it?  *Dun dun DUNNNNNNN*

(Real talk though, I'm SERIOUSLY waiting for subs now.  Like, moreso than the first 2 episodes.)
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on May 31, 2017, 03:50:51 PM
OVA 4's episode 3  provides a link with War on Geminar.  Kiyone had found Rea after she came to Earth from Geminar.  It seems like Nobuyuki may have adopted Rea.  I do prefer another member of the Masaki Family to adopt Rea.   

Until the sub come out, Episode 3 is a little confusing.   At the banquet for Rea, there were a lot of females at the banquet.  At the banquet for Nobuki, there were only seven males. Twp of the males at Nobuyuki's banquet are Taro's father and Tennyo's boyfriend.   Taro's father is the male who is the second male sitting right of Nobuyuki.  The male on Nobuyuki's right and the male sitting left of Tennyo's boyfriend are unknown at the moment.  It is likely that the male sitting on Nobuyuki's right is his brother-in-law/Kasumi's husband. The male sitting left of Tennyo's boyfriend is likely  his father.

While OVA 4 could have been made into a movie., each episode is unique, and help to tell the story.  Episode 3 focuses on Nobuyuki's and Rea's wedding.  Now, I will be waiting for Episode 4.

OVA 4 provides a back story on Rea's arrival on Earth, and a segment on Geminar. OVA 4 suggests that GXP's Idol , and Dual's Zinv  have a link with  Geminar.  Now after watching, I want to have a second season of War of Genimar, and another sequel which I like to call TENCHI MUYO: THE NEXT GENERATION!

Damn, ain't you a busy bee? Heh.

Not now, but later when all the episodes have finished airing it'd be a perfect time to stream them from beginning to end, discussions abound. Maybe take the idea a lot further and decide to stream all of Tenchi in it's entirety.

This is the extracted .srt file converted directly from .ass that was ripped from the video uploaded by Ricin. I make no guarantees about how it's all set up as I mostly did this through furious Google searches and rabid impatience. Hopefully this helps the community and that someone can take this raw subtitles and pretty it up (looking at you EcchiOujisama...).

Wooo!

Just got done watching it.  Not to throw any spoilers out there, but we got confirmation on a lot of things we already knew about, and Episode 3 ties in beautifully to War on Geminar.

Is it just me, or is the relationship between Minaho and Airi a bit... frosty?

Next episode out on August 30th!  Should we do a crowd fund for it?

Post by: Ricin on June 21, 2017, 10:44:26 PM
1) I am all up for crowdfunding Ep 4 subs. What site do you want to use? Kickstarter?

2) I don't read that as a frosty relationship, just that Airi is a little Rape-y and they didn't want to deal with her bullshit so they made a lot of barriers to keep her out.

3) I noticed there were a couple of typos. If we are prettying it up the subs please fix the typos and sub title the sign on the sad party table in the Masaki house.

Post by: takahata on June 21, 2017, 11:23:16 PM
I have just seen the sub translation of OVA 4's episode 3. We learn more information about the Masaki Family and more on Rea's past.  At first, it seems that there are more Masaki Female members in the Masaki family than males. It is likely that most of the Masaki male members are either in space like Kiriko's father or working in other parts of Japan.   Female do dominate the Masaki Village Council.  It seems that all of the women present at Rea's martial banquet are descendants of Yosho. 

During Nobuyki's banquet, Katsuhito has mention that he has two daughters in outer space. Katsuhito was likely referring to his two daughters Minaho and Kiyone.  Both have been in outer space before Kiyone met Nobuyuki. If it turns out that  the Katsuhito has a third daughter, Tenchi has an unknown second aunt.  It seems that Katsuhito had only two wives Kasumi and Airi.  It does make some sense for Katsuhito to have a third wife, in order to help him to maintain his disguise as a Shinto Priest. So at present, Katsuhito has two confirmed wives.

We learn more about Rea's Past.  From what Washu had told Azusa and Seto, there is a major time difference between Earth and Geminar.  Rea wants to send her son to Geminar to protect it in  case if Gaea reappears on the planet. Tokimi seems to be very careful when it comes to her knowledge about Geminar.  Tokimi is well aware of Duel's Earth and Zinv. She may have given information about Duel's Earth and Zinv to her sisters Tsunami and Washu.

I will be waiting for Episode 4.  As I wait for episode 4, I do wished  that OVA 4 had two more episodes.  The two episode could have focus on Mihoshi's family.

I dunno.  From what I've seen in Tenchi Muyo, they don't really mince words that much.  They aren't much for subtleties and mean what they say when they say it.  And Yosho can't even say that Kiyone is in space metaphorically, because A) Jyuraians don't believe in an afterlife and B) Kiyone was cremated in proper Japanese custom and (to my knowledge) her ashes remain on Earth.

So we're talking about another daughter besides Minaho and Kiyone.

Interesting...

i thought he meant this too. also he had 3 daughters with kasumi so who knows...

its good to know that taros dad from the baby episode is just a normal earthling... :/ im mad i have to get all these masaki women without names faces for my character chart... hey uhm did anyone else notice..............mihoshi had nipples in the tub... O_O we are truly living in a wonderful age. no longer do our cartoon waifus have only flat lumps for chests but now they acculy have nipples. 25 years of technological advancement at its finest!

oh actually i brought that up cause i meant to say don't worry mihoshi and the kuramitsu's arc in the story is definitely going to be ova 5 what with her getting treatment by then and mikumo faking his death. .... and obviously ryo ohkis survival becomes known... because she goes into space and attacks the pirates after seina and the original j remember not to mention by the end of gxp TENCHI WAS IN SPACE AMONGST ALL THE OTHER IMPORTANT PPL JUST OUT THERE IN THE OPEN LIKE IT WAS NO BID DEAL. which is kinda a big thing when you remember hes such a secret seina cant even say his name.

also  he could mean literally she is in space cause its academy tradition to be cremated via the sun or something like that.

also the next episode is out in august but dont forget what else is out in august... the new doujin.

I could not tell you, as I have no idea where these people got their information from. And given how much bullshit there is from tenchitrolls, you may as well take it with a grain of salt. That said, his 'sister' could simply be Reia. Since Kiyone found Reia and from the looks of it, took her in, I would imagine Reia was raised like one of Kiyone's own children. So that could be the mystery of who this 2nd 'sister' is or if this 'sister' even exists, to begin with.

I think it is the Kenshi grow-up montage. We get to see him learn everything from each of his sisters. I want to see the episode end with them watching Kenshi kill Gaea with an animated version of this attached pic.

It would be fun to see the girls reaction to Kenshi's arrival and various moments but I doubt that would happen.

I hope so.  I really do.  Especially given that Petrea Burchard did say in that interview that she'd reprise her role as Ryoko if the opportunity came up again.  But on the other hand, after Ai Tenchi Muyo! completely bombed in Japan (Which is definitely the reason why it didn't get licensed), maybe FUNI got cold feet.  I mean, even the streaming services didn't pick OVA 4 up right away for subs only like they do with so many other anime, and we know that they sure as heck didn't go anywhere near Ai.  Anyway, with that being said, back to the topic at hand... episode 4 speculation.  I'm here legit scratching my head thinking about what we'll get from it.  AIC is being super secretive about the finale and we're less than two months away from the episode's release - at this point leading up to the first 3 episodes, we had little teaser pics on the Twitter account.  Not so much this time.

First, I'll discuss what I think it WON'T be.  Like Ricin, I'd love to see it being a "Kenshi growing up montage", but as both Ricin and Eric said, not likely.  Which leads to the big question of the day... the first 3 episodes finished OVA 4's marching orders, so what are they going to do with the finale?  Is there anything left to do?  I mean, there is Tarrant's attack as has been noted by Based Fap (He's doing so much translation work for the fanbase now that yes, he's Based Fap... at least in my book), but doing that all in 1 episode?  Also very unlikely.  Keep in mind, the fights with Kagato, Dr Clay, and Z took 2 episodes each.  To varying degrees as to how much time of the first episode for those encounters was taken, yes, but they all still took 2 episodes.

Now, what I think it WILL be?  It's more than likely that episode 4 will be... *Drumroll* ...a "bonus episode" of some kind.  Maybe we'll get a Night Before The Carnival type situation, or maybe we'll get OVA 3 +1.  I hope it's the former.  But yeah, it won't be the Kenshi growing up montage, and it won't be Tarrant's attack.  There's logic working against it being either of those.  At the end of the day, I think it's gonna be something fun moreso than story development at this point, but I'd also love to be proven wrong.   :parrot:

Truthfully I don't think Ai Tenchi Muyo would have been picked up even if it was good, given the series format of 60 four minute episodes. If it would've been good it would most likely need to edited into fewer episodes with a longer runtime in Japan first, because that's what most of the company's are looking to license.

That would surprise me, considering that OVA series like TM!R are considered along the lines of limited edition releases, whereby they charge a TON of money for a single episode. Allowing it to stream before the series has completed in Japan for a few months would surprise me.

Hey, it's to be expected.  Like I said, IDOLM@STER isn't as easily accessible over here as it is in Japan.  It started as a series of video games, and the only things that got licensed aside from an iOS port of a PSP game (Which the game in question was one of the spinoff games and not part of the mainline games, so it doesn't play the same at all) was the anime (Petit IDOLM@STER which I just mentioned being the big one in this discussion).  And the anime didn't get dubbed, subs only, so yeah.

Also, in regards to the "OVA 4 isn't over in Japan so it won't be licensed by Crunchy" stuff.  I did have a thought just now that causes more chin scratching.  Digimon Adventure Tri is a series of OVAs that gets theatrical runs in Japan before home video... but on the day that each theatrical run begins, BOOM Crunchy has it.  Makes you wonder how a theatrical OVA can be put on Crunchy right away yet a traditional OVA cannot... right?

you're right that does look like yuzuha kanemitsu's wife. but, minaho already knows it was  girl she learned in the 4th chapter of gxp which is still during ova 3. ... it would be funny if she tried to push her child on tenchi before she tried seina. and its probabaly definately her because she is in the doujin on the last page

Looking at the older Tenchi Bans I think 13.08 is the play book.

I think that the Masaki Royal family will have their fun with Rea in part 1 and then it is Kenshi Montage time in act 2.

I have a source who pretty close to the anime industry and knows people both in Japan and  in the US.  According to his contact at Funimation the likelihood of Funimation picking up OVA 4 is rather slim.   Their are a few reasons for this.  1. Their are too many references  and unknown characters from the GXP light novels  which nobody has access to in the states as they are untranslated and 2  Tenchi related blue rays discs have not sold very well. Funimation is considering giving up the original Ova license in 2020.  Also i have received some news from the industry in Japan.  The announcement has not been formally announced yet but Kadokawa have bought Tenchi.

So much they can do, it will be interesting to see what happens.  Perhaps at the end of it all, we can call this episode the Most Interesting Episode of Tenchi Muyo!.  Let's see how it goes.  :)

Really cool to see a grown-up Seina. Now I"m curious to see how much Seina will contribute to Kenshi's training/upbringing. Perhaps the novels explain this, but does Seina have anything special to contribute for training Kenshi besides his mecha pilot skill-ooooooohhhh.

Amane and Gyoukuren (sp?) showing up too is a surprise. I wonder how much screen time they will have.

I hope the OVA has sold well enough so that we can to go into OVA 5 soon, instead of ending on a blatant sequel hook.

You can split the difference. OAV 4 can end with sending Kenshi. OAV  4+1 can end with them watching the Geminar fight.

I am not sure ZINV would allow Kenshi to pilot it. Also Kenshi was said to learn his piloting ability from Dagmyer's crew.

Also when they were discussing Kenshi's upbringing and fail condition he was pretty much surrounded by all of the GXP girls. There is also the scene with Mexiah where Kenshi states that he had same the look in her eyes from Aunts, grandmothers and so on. That needs to show up in the montage too.

Quotes from ISM Subs:

Quote
Kenshi: You have a scary look in your eyes, Ma'am. Am I just imagining things, or are you about to teach me what's applicable or abnormal?
Mexiah: You're Imagining things!
Kenshi: You're lying! I am not imagining things! I have sister-in-laws, aunts and grandmas who get that same mischievous look in their eyes!

Also the bottom left hand inlet of this picture is what I am talking about when I say he is surounded by the GXP girls.

THIS.  SO much this.  I'm actually upset with AIC right now.  They were on a roll and then suddenly a delay?  They seriously can't afford this on the 25th anniversary year after the 20th anniversary failed.

If that's what it takes to make it properly...

Which is only a 2 week delay.  I don't think that's making it properly stuff... that's actually suspicious.  If it was 3 weeks or even a month, then yeah, I'd hear you on that... but it's only 2 weeks.  That just screams of something fishy going on to me.  So sorry, can't agree with you on this one.

In a weird way this works for me.

I had Dragon Con the day the OAV dropped in Japan. I would have been unable to download it for a week or so anyway.

Sucks for the delay I would love to know the reason.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: WarOmnimon on July 22, 2017, 06:51:36 AM
Sucks for the delay I would love to know the reason.

Same here.  Though with the delay being only 2 weeks, I don't think it has anything to do with the episode itself.  Given anime production and stuff, especially for an OVA series, it would have been delayed 3 weeks or more if it was something in the episode that was messed up and had to be corrected.  Common sense dictates that.

Anyway, if I was a guessing man... I'd have to say that AIC's crowdfunded Megazone sequel / reboot hitting the stretch goal for its first PV has something to do with this.  Maybe they halted work on the episode so they could get that out top priority given the fact that it's crowdfunded?  If that's the case, it makes me REALLY glad that AIC sold Tenchi to Kadokawa (As noted earlier in the thread), because that combined with episode 4 being the finale means we won't have to put up with these kind of holdups for much longer.  But like I said, this is just a guess, because we don't know details.

TLDR Given that it's only a 2 week delay, I highly doubt it's something related to the episode of the OVA itself.  If it was 3 weeks or more, yeah... but it's not.  It's likely something unrelated to the OVA and / or just AIC being shady.

It was mentioned earlier in the thread that the deal has been made while I was vocally talking about why I found it strange that Crunchyroll, etc didn't license OVA 4 yet even for subs only, but it hasn't been made official via a news release or anything.  At this point, I don't expect the announcement until OVA 4 is over.  It was Tsundere89 who mentioned it, and I quote...

I have a source who pretty close to the anime industry and knows people both in Japan and  in the US.  According to his contact at Funimation the likelihood of Funimation picking up OVA 4 is rather slim.   Their are a few reasons for this.  1.

I think that they'd only have to buy Dual at minimum.  Buying Photon and Agga Rutter might help, but it isn't necessary unless they want to go further into certain aspects of the canon.  As noted before (In fact, I believe you may have been the one who did so), Masquerade and Anata Dake Konbanwa don't really fit into Tenchi canon, even though the Tenchi-ken appears in Konbanwa... but as noted, that's likely just an Easter Egg.  Dual, Photon, and AR, on the other hand, DO (Dual for its connections to GXP, Photon for its connections to WoG, and AR because of the Shank guild and so forth).  In fact, given that Photon and AR's own characters don't appear in Tenchi canon (Unlike Dual whose characters DO appear), they might not even need to buy those two.  Just Dual would be enough.

...and you know, given that Photon and AR are both inactive and haven't gotten anything in ages, yeah.  I think Kadokawa would just need to buy Dual to keep things consistent.  They wouldn't need the other stuff.  And then there's the situation that AR is the odd man out compared to Tenchi, Photon, and Dual due to being hentai... but then we'd be straying off course too much.  :babble:

they would have to get dual isekai and gxp (i mean i guess they sort of have it already? but i think it's a licensed thing..)

honestly i'm not sure how the rights work in japan... but it just seems all kinds of complicated when you consider how much of AIC's works all reference and use other AIC characters...  do the scenes in other aic shows which have tenchi cameos have to be cut out in newer releases? do scenes that give el hazard characters cameos need to be cut? is there a grandfather clause? are they getting the tenchi tv shows?  why are aic selling their first franchise? so many questions.

would they have to get photon as well based on the technicality that koro in isekai is basicly the same character design and name from photon?

:/ im sure they will make it work.

Exactly my point in terms of the rights and so forth.  +1 for this post.  :)  And you know, the more I think about it, the more I believe that the reason why the official announcement hasn't been made yet is because negotiations for the rights to the other parts of the canon (GXP, Dual, Geminar, Photon, etc) might still be happening.  Otherwise, they would have likely announced it already.

As for Tenchi being AIC's first series... not really.  I know that at least Dangaioh, which first ran in 1987 (Which means this year is the Dangaioh 30th anniversary), is older than Tenchi and was also done by AIC.  But yeah, I know what you meant, it was their first series that really took off.  :babble:

Kadokawa produces anime, like most other publishers.

Not only will I be the second to confirm that Kadokawa produces anime, but I'll also give examples of their previous works.  Keep in mind that they are a media conglomerate and therefore anything done by ASCII Media Works, Enterbrain, and Media Factory also counts (Kadokawa owns those).  Anyway, to name a few.  Shakugan no Shana, Accel World, Sword Art Online, Durarara!!, Black Bullet, Kantai Collection, A Certain Magical Index... I would be going on for a VERY long time if I kept going.

On which note.  Don't forget that the character designer for OVA 4, Takeshi Oda, was also involved with some of the works mentioned above (SAO in particular I noticed immediately when checking ANN for this post).  Therefore, common sense dictates that the transition from AIC to Kadokawa likely won't change the staff working on OVA 5 (Which given how well sales are going for OVA 4 along with Kajishima saying that there's material will now likely happen) TOO much.  Tenchi's in good hands, don't worry folks.  :)

That's a +1, good sir.  I forgot about Bubblegum Crisis when mentioning Dangaioh, which is also hitting a milestone this year (30th, just like Dangaioh - HOW ABOUT THAT!).  It's just a shame that AIC seems to be so hard on that Megazone 23 reboot despite it NOT being on a milestone this year that it may be the reason that OVA 4 episode 4 got delayed (We don't know, but we can and also should be suspicious given that the darn MZ23 reboot is crowdfunded), but at the same time, it makes me thankful about that Kadokawa buyout.  On which note, I somehow feel that I couldn't even remotely count how many people would want to see something new for Dangaioh and / or Bubblegum at this point with two hands, let alone one.

The shitty Google-speak seems to confirm Kenshi's birth & training up to being sent off to Geminar.

I think that was pretty obvious from the moment they showed the character art, but it's awesome to see confirmation of that.  :)

oh well... its a shame really  unless they backtrack from here we will never have any solid closure on mihoshi, or washu...  :( but then again the novels really have done there best to spoil the rest of the story... i hope comiket gives us good news this year though and we get good news of more tenchi

Agreed that it stinks.  However, let's also face facts.  If that closure happened during the time that Tarrant attacked Tenchi and the girls, then there was no chance of it happening to begin with unless they were to end OVA 4 on a cliffhanger given what I mentioned before (Fights in the OVA take 2 episodes to resolve as we noticed with Kagato, Dr. Clay, and Z, plus only 1 episode being left).  Granted, I didn't look into the story in question, but yeah.

Tenchi Muyo OVA 4 had seem more like a movie to me than a series with four separate episodes.  The episodes had focus on mostly around the events surrounding Rea's and Nobuyuki's wedding.  If the series had more episodes, we could have a visit by all of Mihoshi's grandparents.  Given  the truth about Mihoshi's maternal grandfather being the Grand Marshall of the Galaxy police, it is likely one of her paternal grandparents is the Head of the Galaxy Army.   Mihoshi's father Nakita is a Galaxy Army general.  I am speculating that Nakita's mother is a Field Marshall.  Even as the Galaxy Army is a division of the G.P.,  the Galaxy Army is a separate division of the Galaxy Police.  It serves primary as the G.P.'s military. 

I do want OVA 4 mark the end of the Tenchi Muyo: Ryo-Ohki OVA series.  If there is an OVA 5, I want it to be a sequel to the Ryo-Ohki series.  One of my ideals for OVA 5 is focus on Tenchi finding out that he is engaged to a daughter of one of his father's best friends.   This ideal works fine for a fanfiction series. 

I do want one of the next sequels to Ryo-Ohki to center around one of Tenchi's sons.   My ideal title for the series is TENCHI MUYO - THE NEXT GENERATION.   Strangely, one of my  ideals for the series is the main protagonist being the female protagonist.  The female protagonist is the fiancee of the male protagonist Tenchi's son.

Right now, I will wait to see the raw and dubbed versions of the fourth episode.

I am sorry for the misunderstanding..

As I watch the trailer, the scene after Kenshi had gone to see Katsuhito includes Siena, Azusa, and an other man.  Since the man was in a GP uniform, I am wondering if the man  is Kazuki the father of Azusa Jurai Masaki.  While he can be another man, he does look like Kazuki.  If the man is Kazuki, he is likely using the meeting for a reunion with his son Azusa, too.

When Minaho was with Azuza's parents in GXP anime, that would have taken place after OAV4 ep4? Because we know that Seina's visit was before and OAV 4 takes place before the duel.

Also the group shot of all the girls has to be a POV shot from baby Kenshi's viewpoint. He always felt overwhelmed by the Masaki family women.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: Fap_fapperson on August 25, 2017, 05:31:53 PM
it's unclear until this ova is out if that was after kenshis birth. kenshi wasn't born by the first year anniversary of seina in space when he went to see tenchi. the rest of the series , the seiryo battle the take down or the daluma and the seizing of the kamidake and hi marriage all take place over a year ending at the 2nd year anniversary of him leaving earth. so.. if the kazuki and amame scene takes place while kenshi is a baby then yes. if he is anything other then an infant then no.

So the GXP Body Modification lets them live that long?

I'd read somewhere that Azusa's mother had to plant her tree for some reason.... I forget why...  Something about her marriage?

Also, glad to see that they're now printing up the DVDs.  It's a lot less likely for the release to get pushed back now.

 yeap planted tree. because she renounced her right of succession to the throne also she isnt that old... i mean azusa is only uhm *checks timeline* azusa was born in 1239 and im too lazy to do math. most ppl live over 2000 years with just basic bioenhancement and ppl like clay who have access to the latest tech live even longer... amame and kazuki arent really that old when you compaire them to seto or washu
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on August 26, 2017, 09:12:59 PM
According to the Timeline article in Astronerdboy's blog, Azusa was born in the year 1239 C.E.  Azusa was only 9 or 10 when he left his home with Lady Seto.  Azusa had to be off planet in order to meet his father Kazuki.  According to same the timline, Kenshi was born in 1996.  Since Rea looks like he was in her third term during the flashback in GXP episode 18.  So, Kenshi was born in 1995.  I have to wait until OVA 4 to find out what month when Kenshi was born.  The month can be (September) the same month of Tenchi's birthday.  Tenchi was fifteen when he had released Ryoko from her cave prison cell by accident.


All  of Seina's adventures in GXP take place between the Summer of 1994 and 1995.  Some hints about Seina's adventures are given in OVA 4's first three episodes.

According to the Timeline article in Astronerdboy's blog,
:popcorn:
I'm going to stop you write there. yes thats the right year for azusa but That time line is so off in parts... IT EVEN SAYS OVA 3 IS A YEAR LATER THEN IT IS and that gxp is one year when it is two  (granted the last year is super uneventful. only the episodes after kiriko gets her tree really take place in that year) and no kenshi was conceived in after the weding which is september of 93 he is a 94 kid. the tenchi seina episode is summer 94 roughly one year after the start of ova 3. so yeah she was about to pop.

but kazuki and amame are on jurai when kanemitsu is taking seina for training in 1995 so like i said unless he's under 1 years old when we see kenshi and azusa's parents then its probably not the first time he has seen them

I agree. I feel like he would have mentioned a bonus episode in the same doujinshi he mentioned the possibility of OAV5, but maybe he didn't because it's a surprise? Or, more likely, maybe it's dependent on how well this fourth episode sells? Sadly, I think we probably won't get one, but I hope we will!

Indeed, I think it depends on the sales of fourth episode, too. But unfortunately the "Production Committee of Tenthimuyo OVA4", They don't  have sales strategies. The overseas sales strategy is one of them. In addition, OVA4 is of poor quality, it will be inferior to Geminar. I guess the funds are not enough.
They should abandon strategies like in the 20th century and incorporate current methods. For fans all over the world.

If they do a 2nd season of Geminar they need to include the name "Tenchi Muyo" in it so that people realize it's part of the same universe and for marketing reasons, Also not doing a pay per view this time and just straight to blu ray.

As much as I hate that AIC is holding off on licensed western releases and completely disagree with them (I mean, OVA 4 can't even get a licensed English subtitled release on Crunchyroll and so forth yet Digimon Adventure Tri, which most Digimon fans including myself hate, CAN?), I personally think that a lot of it has to do with the fact that Ai Tenchi Muyo! bombed.  I mean, literally EVERYTHING (Save for the special episode of Tenchi in Tokyo) that released before Ai got a western release, even Sasami: Magical Girls Club (Granted, Magical Project S was subtitles only, but it still came over).  Which means you can use common sense and come to the conclusion that it was definitely Ai bombing that caused most of this mess, if not all of it.

Remember, Ai was the first iteration of Tenchi to never leave Japan, and as march harm as it likely would have done, they actually could have licensed it given that shows with similar "5 minute episode" setups such as Petit IDOLM@STER HAVE been licensed.

Kajishima is brilliant. Nabeshin was the worst thing to happen to GXP. AIC though AI tenchi was Ok to produce... they sat there for months aproving the script and animation like it wasn't a steaming pile of poop.  AIC is the most inept production company, They couldn't do any of kajishima's work justice, they treat him like he is on the same teir as the people who wrote スーパーミルクちゃん. They also ran bubblegum crisis into the ground and havent done shit with armitage III other then put out a terrible sequal. they poorly promoted issekai seikishi in japan. GXP was a huge train wreck thanks to them not kajishima and so was OVA3.  AIC must be an acronym for Assholes In Charge.

the manga is in english and it was very popular back in the day like when i was in middle school.
but as for novels... they need to be animated americans are lazy/ dont read anything but comics. also theres the problem of the dubs ruining parts of the show.

Just a heads up everyone. The raw episode is available on nyaa. Just finished downloading it. Gonna watch it tomorrow.

I was hoping it would have an extended run-time, but nope, still half an hour. I skimmed through it, and looks like we got some fanservice.

Thank you for the heads-up about the new episode. :)

Also, I agree that Kajishima is brilliant, and that AIC has repeatedly severely mismanaged Tenchi Muyo in the past.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: GP cadet 87 on September 14, 2017, 02:12:57 PM
Ok, don't have the full context, but the entire episode revolves around discussing Kenshi and whether he should be sent to Geminar. Since we know how that panned out, it feels sort of boring. Love the little character interactions though.

Although it was funny, it seems unfair that the women get the whole five-star treatment during the meeting and the poor men aren't allowed to peep at all that glorious fanservice. ;) Maybe there's some symbolism there.

Great to see the GXP characters again, even though Seina only gets a few lines. Amane was complaining about Kiriko and Karen, so that's something.

So there's lots of talking, and because obviously I don't what's being said, I can't get invested yet. My own fault I guess. If this OVA was aired before War on Geminar, it would've had a way bigger impact. AIC didn't do Misaki-sensei any favors by sitting on this property so long.

Thank you for your opinion. The evaluation of Kajishima and AIC in Japan is similar to you. There are many people who wish that Kajishima will come back.
OVA 4 seems popular among Japanese fans (However, it was boring for me), but I do not know whether it is commercially successful. There are thousands of fans, but Kajishima's world is too wide and too deep for new fans to enter.
In the market only in Japan, the development of the Tenchimuyo franchise is difficult due to lack of finance and human resources. It should be released in North America at the same time as it is released in Japan, or it should be released as PPV.
I can not understand why they do not listen to the demands of the world fans.

the problem there is for most non-japanise fans, kajishima's world doesn't make a lot of sense. We had incomplete translations of the true tenchi novels for the longest time. i only came in and re-translated them last year.  But that is only readable by the english fans who are still fans of the show in 2017.
Tenchi was in its peak here in the early 2000's. Anime only comes on one tv station here. one night a week. for about 5 hours.
Everything else is released with minimal advertising directly to video stores.

the English tenchi was also mistranslated and poorly voice acted. so it doesn't make sense in English.
They never explain that noike is kagato. They call tenchi's mother his grandma in ova 2. lots of things like that. GXP is a mess of its own.

But that is just english. Spanish, Portugese, Chinese, french, german, and italian fans of the show all exist. They can not read my translations. They have no idea what is going on in kajishima's story.

Kajishima's tenchi is not easy for non japanise people because it requires reading. True Tenchi should have been animated.
Title: Re: OVA 4 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on September 14, 2017, 03:45:15 PM
From now on, I will wonder if OVA 4 will have been a movie.  In OVA 4, we have no major antagonist.    For the first three episodes, it focuses solely around the events of Nobuyuki's and Rea's wedding.  Then came the fourth episode. As a result of the raw version,  OVA 4's fourth episode was a little confusing. 

From the episode, we do get a hint that Sasami is going to middle school. The episode should have disclose Kenshi's age.  Ryo-Ohki is enable to master her human form.

OVA 4 is likely the end of the Ryo-Ohki series.  A lot of  fans are disappointed about not seeing the wedding of Tenchi and the girls.  Tenchi is likely married by the last scenes of episode 4. 

I do suspect that there is going to be a sequel to Ryo-Ohki.  As a fan, I want the timeline of the sequel to take place sometime after 2017.   While there has been some news about OVA 5,  the news had stated that OVA 5 will include Kenshi and some of Tenchi's children.  I want the sequel to focus on Tenchi's oldest son.  Oddly, I want the sequel to be different from all harem series to date.

OVA 4 was not a prefect series.  At first, OVA 4 had seem merely the prequel to War on Geminar.  It had turn out to be the last OVA in the Ryo-Ohki series.  For the moment, the details of a sequel are a few.  As a fan,  I do want the sequel to known as TENCHI MUYO: THE NEXT GENERATION.

Little Washu is the only girl on Tenchi's harem that plays a big part in all this.

It is an interesting finding. I also want to consider that "father" to be an under-plot of another story, but the Japanese often omit "Tenchi-san's" when calling "Tenchi-san's father". But there is expectation.

I'll explain my reason, we already know what happens to the kid, we saw the series so to me it's pointless to see how it all lead up to Seikishi, now if they didn't and that was the next series they were going to show after but it's not. Been there done that thing sort of thing.

Unless we get information regarding characters I actually care about, like Tenchi's harem I'd be for it. I also feel they should have done this in Ova three instead and Show the other things they did in Ova three for Ova four, like Tenchi's plot with defeating z and stuff.

I don't know what the creator was thinking in doing it this way. It's backwards and I didn't need to see these none Tenchi harem characters take up all the screen time. I feel they should have focused on Tenchi and his harem and set up his wedding and his reactions to it. This show was not about his dad, it was about his son.

This is just another example of the huge divide between Japanese and Western Tenchi fans.

The material of this OVA SHOULD'VE been released before Sekishi but wasn't. Now, some North American Tenchi fans (like me) either won't care, or will just be confused. This OVA hasn't been bad, necessarily. But the last 2 eps were very heavy on exposition, and to theAmerican fansè POV, *pointless* exposition. Huge difference if this was released back in 2007/2008, before Sekishi, since there is all this set-up. I'm not angry at Kajishima-sensei or the cast & crew, they're just making something for the domestic fanbase, and it's not bad by any means.

If AIC just produced/arranged things to fit the timeline and Kajishima's vision better, I think I would have enjoyed these last 2 episodes a lot more.

Kajishima needs to find a happy medium when it comes to the control of his shit. With how shows are structured he can't fit all this crazy narrative gooby-gop within' a timely manner -- which inevitably clots down the show. You can fit all sorts of exposition in novel format, that's fine in fact it thrives on it. But TV is TV.

Instead of trying to fit in a huge overarching narrative spanning since his childhood in four, thirty-minute episodes, concentrate on something not so complicated and a lot more fun for people watching.

Hang me cuz I might be spouting heresy but that's my two cents.

Preach it man, preach it.  +1.  Right now, this is looking like Kajishima and AIC butting heads given that they won't let him get his hard work on Tenchi out there in a timely manner.  It's basically the system beating the guy who made the franchise, AND IT AIN'T RIGHT.

This seriously makes me wish that the Kadokawa buyout stuff actually happened, because then we'd have a better chance of actually getting new content in a timely manner.  SMH...

Ayuko was pretty good. Hope they re-release Dual! someday. Tsukiko getting teased was definitely one of the better scenes for me, but of course my favorites were all relegated to three-to-four line character interactions. I don't understand this model. Are classic Tenchi characters no longer marketable?

But it did connect to the reason why Kenshi exhibited some animalistic behavior which was alluded to many times in Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. The connection was blaringly obvious to anyone that was a Tenshi fan but it was nice to have the connection.

Really, this has the feeling of either a transition or a denouement.  That said, having this all be nothing but talk and plotting is excellent material for what it is.  Let's wait and see what they do for OVA 5 before we bitch too much about it.  We already have War on Geminar after all, so we already have a good deal of what comes next.

I had just watch the Sub version of OVA 4's episode 4.  Near the end of the episode, the scenes take place within a period between after 5 years and seven years since Kenshi's birth.  The year in the timeline of the last scenes is likely set either during the year 2001, 2002, or 2003.   

Oddly as a result of Mitoto's reaction to the images of Kenshi,  Tenchi had definitely has become a father.   I am still a little confused over Mitoto's reaction by requesting some copies of the Kenshi's images.  We can assume that Tenchi is married to Mihoshi.  The mother of Tenchi's oldest child is likely Noike.  The mother of Tenchi's second child is Mihsohi.   

For OVA 4,  it feels more like a Movie to me.  It marks the end of the series TENCHI MUYO: RYO-OHKI.  While there is a strong chance for OVA 5,  one  of  the next sequels of  TENCHI MUYO  is likely be call TENCHI MUYO:  THE NEXT GENERATION.

I was also confused by Yosho's statement that he has "two daughters in space" though judging from how many descendants he has from his relationship with Kasumi, I guess it shouldn't be a shock that he may have a daughter other than Minaho who is alive.

Has there been any confirmation on what happened to Seto's saaphic harem and if Mikami was once apart of it? perhaps Seto is planning on returning to her girls once Yosho returns, Tenchi ascends, her plans succeed and she no longer has to play the political role.

I remember reading once that Seto's, or rather Naja's (both?) grandest scheme/ultimate goal is the unification of the galaxies and to me, this would make sense-I believe that Naja, paralleling Kagato, is in search of the Unified Field Theory/Grand Unified Theory same as he was, though of course Kagato's means were more nefarious and Seto hopes that through the unification of families, lovers, and loved ones-in the forms of these "marriages" she arranges (that almost always never work out as I believe someone in the Masaki village commented on during OVA 4) hold a truer goal of the harems that result from her schemes being units of great power centering and focusing their energies on one factor of a special vibration (Tenchi, Seina, Kenshi, Azusa, herself)-love will unveil the unified field and ultimately, fulfill the Chousin's purpose, ie: the metaphysical reunification of the lower vibrations with the higher ones, return to God, heaven, etc. ("This Side Up!")

No Need for Heaven and Earth because it's all unified, it's all one and Seto/Naja's actual goal, other than throwing stones to see how big the ripples are in the water as Sasami says, is to make so much love in the Universe through the unification of House Masaki with House Tatsuki, Kamiki, and Amame; plus Seina's union with his girls with their lineage and statuses and whatever she sent him to do in Paradise War; plus Tenchi's union with Mihoshi, Washu, and Ryoko; plus the factor of Kenshi being the multidimensional halfling prophesied to save Geminar and his union with the girls over there -- to ultimately break the seal on the higher dimensions and allow the unified field/God to reveal itself, as is the quest of the Chousin or rather Tenchi himself-he is the manifestation of the Akashic Record apparently, so he has purposed for love to be the way back to the astral sea.

The unification theory also makes me appreciate the 'it takes a village' theme that surrounds Kenshi's upbringing. He's a result of pretty much all of the madness that Kami Tenchi brought together. As well as how the universe that resulted from the two parallel words of Dual! combining at the end of the series is Tenchi's universe; the dual characters being reincarnated as GXP characters, oooh and the theory that Tokimi took Z's soul/astral pattern and reincarnated him into Kenshi (her being in the Kami section at Nobu and Rea's wedding, her being so involved in the Geminar scenario)

I want more Mihoshi. Like, I love the mystery of not really knowing what actually happened to her as much as the next person but I want more talk of it, I want more shady flashbacks that give more clues, I want more of the big players talking about her genius of luck, what is the origin/connection between her good luck and Seina's bad luck, what was she like before "the incident", more info on this "scary Mihoshi" personality that I believe revealed herself briefly during the meal scene in OVA 4 episode 1.

Also, I appreciated the character development of Ayeka and Ryoko's relationship-makes me remember that Ryoko just wanted to play with Ayeka when she attacked her during her raid on Jurai 700 years ago. I also appreciated the knowledge we got about Masaki village. I dont think theyll all have to leave Earth because I think everything will get exposed to the Earthlings before events force all the Masakis to have to leave.

I also enjoyed the flashback scenes of Kiyone and Rhea-kinda gave me the vibe that Kajishima has more stories he wants to tell of their time together, if he hasn't already and I just haven't read them/seen them. Also makes me wonder how Kiyone was planning on getting Rea/her kid back to Geminar without having told anyone-hilarious scenarios I probably wouldn't mind seeing in doujin or mini format

One of highlights of the OVA for me was Azusa's concern for Kenshi. It seemed to be legitimate and quite valid, possibly stemming from Azusa's own turbulent childhood after being separated from his parents.

Is Tsukiko eventually going to join Seina's girls? Has there been any discussion on her future with Seina, Kiriko's knowledge of her feelings or anything in the GXP novels?

I also dont think we're getting a wedding on-screen in OVA 5, I think we'll probably see wedding scenes in flashbacks but I think Kajishima may just keep it pushing with the story and we'll just have a kid or two next OVA and Tenchi will probably be married to at least Noike by then, judging from her referring to Nobuyuki as father during Kenshis birth scene.

Replying to what LightHawkWing had say about Katsuhito having another daughter in space has cause me to have the thought of Katsuhito having a third wife.  The third wife theory does suggest that Katsuhito could have a third wife who had help him in his disguise as a Shinto Priest.  Airi's and Katsuhito's marriage is consider to be a Common-in-Law marriage.  Airi's amd Katsuhito's type of marriage does make sense because of the problem relationship between Airi's homeworld Airai and Jurai. 

We know that Katsuhtio's first wife had died in the past.  Katsuhito's and Kasumi's marriage result in the creation of a new branch in the Masaki Family Tree.  If Katsuhito had gotten married a third time before Kiyone's birth, Katsuhito's reason for a third marriage should be the result of a political marriage arrangement between the Masaki Family and the Tokugawa Clan. During the Edo Period, the Tokugawa Clan was  the most powerful clan in Japan.  The Shoguns of the Edo Period were members of the Tokugawa Clan. The main purpose of any marriage arrangement between the Masaki Family and the Tokugawa Clan would be likely to reinforce the alliance between the Two Clans.

If Katsuhito has a second daughter who is still alive in space, she will likely to be one of Airi's and Katsuhito's daughters.  For the theory of Katsuhito's third wife, the possibility of Katsuhito having a third wife is slight above fifty percent. One of the reasons why Katsuhito may have a third wife is solely focus on Katsuhito's need to maintain his disguise.  Oddly, Katsuhito's third wife is likely still alive and in space.  When it comes to the relationship between Airi and the third wife is likely similair to the relationship between Funaho and Misaki.

other then in that one chapter on imuim, i dont think so.

the phrase tenchi muyo actualy is an four character idiom ( a Yoji Jukugo aka four-letter Chinese , or quaternionized word ) that implys the idiom 天地が無用  (逆さまにしても構わない)  "If heaven and earth are meaningless i dont mind being upside down." but due to a weird peculiarity in chinese grammer which i dont under stand it some how got commonly misread as 逆さまにしてはならない a lot. which means if heaven and earth are meaningless, dont turn it upside down... more then likely these phrases should be interpreted to mean If trying to find the top and bottom of a this package is pointless, just dont turn it upside down. which is why it used to be put on packages.

but yeah that was my thoery, naja definately seems to be trying to unite the galaxy's powers.

 also something i always forgot to add to my notes kagato's name is the japanise version of  पुरुष , puruṣa

which is a interesting concept i dont quite understand but links undoubtebly to the overall theme of the series.


Noun[edit]
पुरुष • (púruṣa) m

man, male, human being
person, officer, functionary, attendant, servant
friend
a follower of Samkhya
a member or representative of a race or generation
the height or measure of a man
the pupil of the eye
the primaeval man as the soul and original source of the universe
the personal and animating principle in men and other beings, the soul or spirit
the Supreme Being or Soul of the universe
the Spirit as passive and a spectator of the creative force (prakṛti)
the "spirit" or fragrant exhalation of plants
name of the divine or active principles from the minute portions of which the universe was formed
name of a metrical foot in the mahanamni verses
name of the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th signs of the zodiac
name of one of the 18 attendants of the sun L.
name of the Brahmans of the Krauncha or "mountain" dvipa
Rottleria Tinctoria, probably Mallotus philippensis
Clerodendrum phlomidis
Declension[edit]

the chinese wiki translates it as

God I ( Sanskrit : पुरुष , puruṣa ), in Sutra in, also known as puṃs, translated into another Hominid , Opinion , diffuse in the universe of self . The earliest origins of the Vedic era, and later became the concept of ancient Indian philosophy, the number theory as a core concept. Buddhism is also influenced by this idea, citing it as a reference to its teachings, but in general Buddhism is critical of this notion.

In Sanskrit, God, I have people , men , self and soul and other means. God I originated from the "original song", is the beginning of the universe. Later, the legend of the primitive people transformed God and me into the core of life and the subject of reincarnation, which is the core concept of ancient Indian number theory philosophy. Samkhya that "my God" and " nature " of dualism philosophy [1] , and Vedanta "doctrine Vatican My Magic" monism , to compete, to become one of the mainstream philosophical concept of ancient India.

Buddhism criticizes God and I, but the limited adoption of the doctrine of nature, including the teachings of Tathagatagarbha , are all considered to be similar to God's concept.

so who knows... i think what your saying may be likelier then we all think. only time will tell


I want more Mihoshi.
[\quote]
same all the mihoshi. a mihoshi special... no 7 mihoshi specials. a mihoshi movie. change mihoshi to the main character and make the harem hers!



Is Tsukiko eventually going to join Seina's girls? Has there been any discussion on her future with Seina, Kiriko's knowledge of her feelings or anything in the GXP novels?


nothing in stone yet just endless implications that kiriko is going to leave seina in the long off future.

In the meeting scenes on Lady Seto's ship, there are two unidentified female characters.  At the conference table, the first one is sitting on Mitoto's left. The second one is sitting on Funaho's left.  It is strange for two unknown females to appear.  Both are connected with Rea. I can identified rest of the female characters at the table.
