Post by: Dr.Soviet on August 30, 2017, 12:14:48 AM
Yes you heard that right.

Kajishima said in his newest doujin that he is doing the storyboards for OVA 5 after the next GXP novel comes out in early 2018 and it will be starring Tenchi's children and Kenshi.

Also in the new -if- doujin Ryoko is very good at raising children.

Wow, it's actually happening?!?!

We're actually gonna see Tenchi's relationship actually move forward?! I know you said that he won't be the focus, but this is HUGE NEWS, considering that Tenchi is probably the first harem anime, and you almost never see things progress in these type of stories.

I've felt a little let down by OVA 4. Yes, it's full of easter eggs and backstory, but it's pure slice of life, and the focus has been solely about Nobuyuki's wedding. Now with the last episode of OVA 4, things are finally picking up steam.

Thanks all you Japanese Tenchi fans for making this possible!!  :bravo:

This is good news. I hope we get to see Tenchi's wedding at least. If I had to watch Nobuyuki's wedding twice, but then don't get to see Tenchi's I'll be upset.

My suggestion for OVA 5's title is  TENCHI MUYO: THE NEXT GENERATION.  OVA 5 seems to be a sequel to the Ryo-Ohki series.  OVA 5 can be the first OVA for TM: TNG.

Darn, I was really hoping the next Ova series would focus on Tenchi getting married and stuff, this is kind of random. I hope the last episode of Ova 4 is about that than, I'll be so disappointed if they don't show that stuff :(

It's been confirmed that the finale of OVA 4 is Kenshi's training before being sent to Geminar.  As I am about to say, I think Tenchi's wedding will without question be OVA 5 episode 1, and then they'll shift to Kenshi and the kids for the rest of the series.

This is good news. I hope we get to see Tenchi's wedding at least. If I had to watch Nobuyuki's wedding twice, but then don't get to see Tenchi's I'll be upset.

100% agreed.  I don't think that we should panic, because I seriously believe that they will include Tenchi's wedding somehow.  Maybe episode 1 of OVA 5 will be Tenchi's wedding and then the rest of OVA 5 is the story for his kids.  Yeah, they might skip Tarrant attacking Tenchi and the girls, but there's no chance that they'll actually skip Tenchi's wedding.  Especially not when his kids are center stage in the new OVA.  No way.  Uh uh.  They're gonna show it.

to clarify this is what they will be skipping if they do this:
Tarrant attacks and has his ass handed to him
Mihoshi gets her brain fixed.
Tenchi finds out that if the choushin cant get him to the plain higher then him eventualy, in say a few billion millenia he will just be trapped forever in a complacently dead multiverse.
seto's memories of being naja get unlocked and her story is explained
Washu de ages ryoko and ryo ohki using bioroid bodies controled like D. because she wants to play mommy.
washu meets back up with her son and arranges for him to fake his death
a gap between cannon dimentions opens and noike cat fights kiyone to the death to decide who is best tenchi waifu just kidding checking to see if anyone read this list.
washu consults neiju over something we dont know about. (hence why she came to jurai on ryo ohki)
yosho and airi get de aged and work their marital issues out
ryo ohki visits jurai with neiju in tow for the first time.
Dr clay gets let out of his prison by the galaxy army and shank
Washu announces she is still alive, shortly after yosho's survival is announced thus all the tenchi family are publicly able to be married.
they get married.

Lookie lookie what I found like Dr Soviet said Ryoko is good with kids in the new latest Doujin I Feel so bad for Ayeka it seems her kid likes Ryoko better.
Anyways I'm so excited for OVA 5 I really do hope they don't skip any important stuff since we have so many questions left unanswered.

Why can't they do two or three episodes deticated to these plots than the next focus on the kids. It just doesn't make sense for them to not resolve Tenchi's love life than boom oops Tenchi randomly has kids next Ova.

Guy who created Tenchi has to know how many years fans have been waiting for Tenchi to choose some one and for them to just gloss over it like nothing?! Come on man.

I hope they have more than four episodes this Ova.

I can't believe they are going to focus the last episode on Tenchi's family again, we already know what happens to him next :(

Definitely.  I mean, some of that can be skipped without affecting what OVA 5 is planned to be, but agreed, Based Fap (Who just got another +1 for this post from yours truly) noted some stuff that also needs to be in there.  I say that everything with Mihoshi, Washu, Yosho, and Airi needs to get talked about at minimum.  The stuff with Tarrant, Seto, Ryo-Ohki and Neiju, and Dr. Clay could be skipped in the OVAs (Perhaps an actual redo of GXP's anime without Nabeshin sticking his nose in is where we'll get that - remember, they're likely going to reveal plans for the anniversary soon and the 10th anniversary is when we got GXP and OVA 3) without harming the explanation as to how the wedding can happen in the first place.

Also, I legit chuckled at the Noike VS Kiyone matchup joke.  :)

MY LIST OF NAMES FOR FIRST SON AND FIRST DAUGHTERS

1. AYEKA-  First Son - Kazuki
                 First daughter-  Kiyone

  -Kiyone and Kazuki can be fraternal twins

2. RYOKO -  First daughter - Tenko
                  First son - Akira

3- MIHOSHI - First Daughter-  Miyuki
                     First son- Mikumo

4-  SASAMI-  First son -Utsutsumi
                    First daughter -  Funaho

5- NOKIE  -  First son - Yosho
                   First daughter-  Hotaru

6- WASHU-  First daughter-  Naja
                   First son -  Siena

7- RYO-OHKI-  First Daughter - Kasumi
                      First Son - Kojima

This is a list of tentative names for Tenchi's oldest sons and daughters.  I do like the ideal of the first children of Tenchi and Ayeka being fraternal twins.  Kazuki is name after his maternal grandfather's father.  Kiyone is name after Tenchi's mother.  I do want one of Tenchi's daughters to be name Kiyone as a way for Tenchi to honor his mother.   For Tenchi's and Ryoko's first son, Akira is a good name. For Akira means Devil.

Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on September 05, 2017, 03:53:10 PM
In my OVA topic, I point out that I want OVA 5 to be a sequel to the Ryo-Ohki OVA 1-4 series.  Dr. Soviet announces that Masaki is planning for OVA 5 to focus on Tenchi's children and Kenshi.  Masaki has a chance to do something very unique for a harem series.  Make the female protagonist into the main protagonist.  If Tenchi's oldest child is a girl, she will likely be a minor problem as the main protagonist.  My ideal for the female protagonist to be the main protagonist is for her to be the first fiancee of Tenchi's oldest son.  Tenchi's oldest son is still the male protagonist.

Until more information about Masaki Kajishima's plans for OVA 5 is given,  my ideal for OVA 5's main protagonist to be a female is my own ideal.  Having a female as the main protagonist of a harem series is very tricky. 

So, all I  expect from OVA 5 is for the name of Tenchi's oldest daughter to be Kiyone.  Tenchi will name his first daughter Kiyone as a way to honor his mother Kiyone.

Kajishima said the OVA5 is planning but it is Uncertain yet and can't know when it will start.
For OVA5, he will have to do tons of works as original author. On OVA4, he let some main works to others, it was because he got older. I expect Kajishima's OVA5, but it may be difficult for him.

Now I am waiting for the episode 4 of OVA4. OVA4 was a little boring but I am looking forward to the birth of Kenshi.
And I guess that important information will be written in future Doujin and GXP novel.

This is why I'm tempering my (already tempered by subject matter) excitement about OAV5: the uncertainty. Every anime seems to be an uphill battle for Kajishima.

Post by: Eboshi on September 15, 2017, 06:47:47 AM
I came up with another assumption about OVA5. I guessed the characters of "-IF-" who mentioned by Kajishima about the concept of OVA5 (on the Doujin of C92) were Tenchi's children. However, There is a possibility that they are characters of "-IF- 何かを育てるなんて小学校以来だ(仮)". If so, it is the birth of a new Kajishima's world, but I still want to see the stories of Tenchi, Seina and Kenshi.

Umm, Sorry for my poor English.

So what did Kajishima  actually say?

I translated part of Doujin's postscript released on C92.
"There are plans for OVA 5 or the sequel. Next year, after finishing writing a novel, I will start a scenario and a storyboard. As its work is huge, it is not clear when it will be released.
The main part of the story is the growth process of Kenshi. And it will be able to appear characters of "GXP", "Paradise War", "- IF -".
From next year I would like to shorten the interval of publication of GXP novels. And at C93, I'd like to put the characters I drew for social network games on Doujin."

So it's going to be about Kenshi, with tenchi's children as side characters?

Nobody knows yet. but I expect that if Kajishima will write outstanding scenarios like OVA1 and OVA2, every characters can be standout.
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on September 17, 2017, 09:21:23 PM
-IF- was an interesting dou.  It had mostly focus on the relationships between some of Tenchi's daughters and some of Siena's sons.  I will expect that Tenchi had an older child before -IF-.  The child is likely Tenchi's oldest son.   The ideal of Ayeka and Ryoko having daughters at the same time is a very good one.  Kajishima have not name Tenchi's daughters and Siena's sons involved in -IF-. 

For my view for OVA 5,  I want the  series to focus on Tenchi's oldest son.  The GXP's novels will give some hints about will likely happen by the time of OVA 5.

I am curious about the GXP novels.  Can anyone help me to find where I can find any of the translations of the novels.

yeah i cleaned up volumes 1-4 the best i could but my "translating" is lazy and a mess and then the rest i quoted the highlights of the differences in two threads on here... after 4 it gets... besides ryoko balta fucking dying for 10 whole pages by being blown up by the police and dragged off in a body bag it stays alot of the same untill they go to earth, and then theres a whole cut episode in there where they go to imuim and are forced by seto to address the fact they have to get married and dont know seina ass well as they think they do.


for the most part though, the plot happens the same as the anime in alot of ways but with important changes and improvements that were intended but nabeshin cut.

like if ppl are going AIRI NO RAEPING! or amane and kirko fighting. for the 10000th time i can only stand to translate so much of the scenario. I really dont care for translating seiryo.

but all the lore i have made sure to note and translate.

I already saw Kenshi's growth process in the doujinshi! ;_; I'll still be eager to watch OAV5 but damn, I just want the "after the war" romance arc Kajishima teased back during OAV3's development.

i posted this in another thread

jibril kindly scanned the end page of the new doujin for me so i could translate



講談社刊 『Paradise war』 はGXPのその後、seinaが廉座から帰って来た後の話で す。


"Paradise War" published by Kodansha is the story After GXP, After Seina comes back from Renza.

他の小説家の方の著書扱いになっていますが、真Tenchiや GXPー巻と同様、共同執筆と なりますので、まだお読みでなければ、一度お手にとってみてください。まあ実際は 『真Tenchi Muyo外伝Paradise War』とした方が分かり易かったのかなあと思います。

i had another novelist co-author it because i was busy with true tenchi and GXP (faps notes: some guy names mizuki wrote it) I think it might have been easier for people to understand that if it was named: true tenchi muyo gaiden: Paradise war (faps note: gaiden = side story and gxp in japanise is true tenchi muyo gaiden: tenchi gxp)


Paradise warもいつも通り、ほぼ小説状態のプロットを書きましたが、ミロンは マジ、ヒロインにする予定ではありませんでした。それがまあ書き進める内にどんどん 存在感を増し、他のヒロイン候補を押しのけて中央にドンッと鎮座して居座ってしまいま した。半分はアーレアの悪食のせいです。あれがなければミロンのクルーザーが・・・・・・。と にかく主人公の近くに居座ってしまったが運の尽き、そもそも俺がああいうキャラ好きだ しね。しかたないよね? ただ本当にヒロインにするつもりはなかったのは、本当です。 コー地大錦土、いいけれど、こっちもアニメ化しこい*の"
I dont care to translate this basicly, oh well asusual i began writing paradise war with milon as the main heroin but as the others came into the story her role flattened out. or something like that heres the google translate:

As usual Paradise war wrote a plot of almost novel condition, but Miron was not planning to do it seriously, heroin. As it went on to write well, the presence increased steadily and pushed past other heroine candidates and settled down in the center. Half is due to Alea's bad food. If there is no such thing, Milon's cruiser .... Anyway, I stayed close to the main character, but my luck is gone, I guess I like kyara so much. It is not true that it just did not mean to truly make it a heroine. Koh Gejin Nishiki, good, but I want to make animation here *



今後の仕事についてですが、天地四期がこの後書きを書いている時点でほぼ終了です。

now to talk about my future works, the fourth part of tnechi muyo is almost finished as of the time of me writing this.

 ー応、五期、続編の話はありますが、小説作業が終わってからなので、プロットを書ける のは来年、そこからシナリオ、コンテや設定とありますので、発売がどこになるかは未定 です。

The response to it was good so it seems were getting a 5th season, but it will have to wait until my novel work is over, there is scenereo and settings already made up (fap note: i think that's what this suggests may be wrong) so next year i will begin to write the plot, therefore it i am unsure when the actual release will be.

内容はKenshiの育成話が中心ですが、GXPキャラや今回のパラダイス・ウオー、時間 軸的には『天地無用|F』のキャラも出せるので、色々と楽しみではあります。

although the content will center on the kenshi's upbringing, Gxp Characters will be theer and Paradise war will be happening on the same time axis, tenchi muyo -if- characters can finally be used so i am looking forward to various things.

GXP小説は何とか来年頭を目標に、発刊ペースを元に戻したいと思ってますが、さすが に十五巻ほど分厚くはならないかと。

im thinking that the gxp novels are going to go back to their original release pace with the goal of out putting one a year for now but i wonder if they will all end up as thick as volume 15 if i do that (fap note: volume 15 is huge... i own it... its like 15 chapters and 500 pages. huge! usualy there like 200 pages)

それと冬コミですが、そろそろDMMの天地イラスト を説明文と共にまとめようかと思っています。
 
also im going to release a winter comic, but im thinking i will put together a compilation of the illustrations from the DMM (does he mean tenchi muyo bride ryouran that game from years ago?) with explanations for them.

今回の表紙に描いた大人版福ちゃんとか追 加する予定です。
I plan to add in the adult version of Fuku-chan drawn on this cover.

An ideal for OVA 5 involves the news of Katsuhito/Yosho being found after 700+ years since his disappearance.   OVA 4 gives a hint that Katsuhito may have a third daughter with Airi.  Katsuhito had stated that he has two daughters in space. The first daughter is Minaho.   There is only a slight chance of Katsuhito having a third daughter.

Kajishima had stated that OVA 5 will include Kenshi and Tenchi's children.  I don't like the ideal of OVA 5 being a prequel to War on Geminar.  OVA 5 can help us to understand what has happen between OVA 4 and War on Geminar.  OVA 5 must have a strong villain like Kagato and Dr. Clay. An ideal for the main villain is for the villain coming from the House of Amaki.  The House of Amaki is the main rival of the House of Masaki.  It is likely that the House of Amaki reason for being the rival of the House of Masaki is focus on merely challenging the house and King Azusa.  Lady Seto will not want an  unfriendly rivalry between two of the four Royal Houses of the Jurain Royal Family

One more ideal for OVA 5 can be focus on what had happen to Naja.  Also, there can be a reference to Masaki the sister of the first Jurain King.

I like the Amaki link in theory, depending on implementation could be real good. Classical Villans are not going to work but political ones might be more likely given that you cannot overpower the Masaki village militarily.

Masaki will be difficult because in one of the novels it states that Tenchi's son is the one who finds her again because he is a space archaeologist. So the time frame will not line up.

Yosho's "daughters" are Minaho and Tenyo. He is refering to Tenyo that way because she is his Grand-daughter. There is hopefully no unnamed new daughter because that would be awful storytelling

Post by: takahata on January 29, 2018, 12:05:19 PM
The daughter in space whom Katsuhito may be referring to can be one of his three daughters with Kasumi.  I had assumed that Airi and Katsuhito had three daughters. Airi and Katsuhito had only two daughters Minaho and Kiyone.  It makes sense for Airi to have one daughter at a time. 

When it comes to OVA 5's antagonist being a member from the House of Amaki,  the person must be a rogue member.  Aware of Lady Seto's powers, she will not dare to have a hostile rivalry between two of the Four Houses.   The rivalry between the Amaki and the Masaki is a result of the need for one house having to challenge the present Jurain ruler King Azusa.  Even the Head of the House of Amaki is will try to avoid any unnecessary conflict with Jurai's most powerful person Lady Seto.

An ideal which  for OVA 5 is focus on the House of Amaki asking for a betrothal between one of the Amaki's daughters and  Katsuhtito's grandson Tenchi.  Unfortunately when it comes to political martial arrangements, Lady Seto was the one who had arranged a political marriage arrangement. Given the details of the first plans for OVA 5,  a political arrange marriage between the Amaki and the Masakii is not going to happen.  Still the series' villain coming from the House of Amaki can disclosed more about how the Jurain Royal Family works.

 the end if the yosho novel they throw In that he had 3 daughters with kasumi before contacting airi. so minaho is the oldestt and presumably only one of the 5 to not marry I assume sense the masaki line is huge  no way it got that big with only two matriarchs. yeah no names released.  kiyone wasn't even really that old compared to the others. it would be cool for the amakis to be starting shit again.

He had 3 daughters with Kasumi, but it was 100 years before he got into contact with Jurai again. Some may have died of old age without space healthcare, or even modern earth healthcare. Though we know how old Kiyone was when she died, there's some murkiness about the natural lifespans of Yosho's kids.

Latest info on OVA 5 does stated that the series will take place before the events of TM: War on Geminar.  While I don't want OVA 5 to be a prelude to War on Geminar,  it can continue to be a sequel of Ryo-Ohki.  For OVA 5's main villain, a rogue member from the Jurain Royal House of Amaki will be all right.  My ideal for part of the plot on the present Head of the House of Amaki deciding on making a political marriage arrangement between one of his children and one of Tenchi's children.  We are aware of what will happen with most of Tenchi's daughters, and his only confirmed son.

The Head of the House of Amaki must be a heir to the previous Head. The present only wants to end the bitter rivalry between the Amaki and Masaki Houses.  He knows the importance on maintaining the rivalry between the two houses.  The Head will likely to  ask Lady Seto to help him.  Not all members of the House of Amaki can't support the present Head's plans to end the bitter rivalry between the House of Amaki and the House of Masaki.  A rogue member from the House of Amaki wants to prevent the Head from extending an Olive branch to King Azusa, and the House of Masaki.

OVA 5 can explore the politics between the Four Houses of the Jurain Royal Family.  Another ideal for one episode is for a visit to Earth by the ruler of the Seniwan Empire.  One of the main reasons for the ruler's visit to Earth is focus on strengthening the alliance and friendship between Jurai and The Seniwan Empire.

Interesting about the Amaki house politics being explored. But the Seniwa Empire head by the time of OAV 4 is Mikami Kuramitsu. Since she is in line to marry Seina in round 3 or 4, she will not need to visit Earth unless she wants some personal face time with the Yamamada Earth based clan.

The other problem will be that the time period between OAV 4 Episode 3 and 4 is going to be the Renza GXP arc and Paradise War.

OAV 5 needs to show Tenchi getting married or at least Seto setting the trap that snares Tenchi and the girls together. That closure is needed for the fans IMO

In one of the references about the Seniwan Empire, there is the likelihood of the Empire having a royal family.  Since the Kuramitsu Family is the most powerful family in the Empire,  the Emperor or Empress is somewhat like the Japanese Emperor.  The Japanese Emperor is merely a constitutional monarch like Queen Elizabeth II.  I do believed that the Kuramitsu Family does share power with the Seniwan Royal family.  Like King Azusa, the Seniwan Empress has more power than all of Earth's Constitutional Monarchs.

I have chosen the title Empress for the Seniwan monarch because King Azusa needs an opposite.

Before the first news of Masaki K's intentions for OVA 5 came out, I wonder if Tenchi finds himself with another fiancee. The only way for Tenchi to have another fiancee is a result of Tenchi being betrothed to one of the daughters of two of his parents' best friends.  The betrothal could have been a result of a promise which Tenchi's parents and their friends have when they were still either at the Galactic Academy, the GP Academy, or both.  Tenchi and his betrothed do have the right to end their betrothal if they chose to do it. Oddly the daughter who is Tenchi's betrothed is not willing to end the betrothal. 

Now, I am only expecting the OVA villain to be likely a rogue member from the Jurain Royal House of Amaki.  The rogue member wants to prevent the present Head of the House of Amaki from ending the long bitter rivalry between the Amaki House and the Masaki House. The present Head's plans are outline in my last reply.  The Head is aware of the need to maintain the rivalry between the Amaki and Masaki Houses.  The ideal of the main villain being from the House of Amaki is a way to further explore the politics of Jurai's Royal Court.  One of the causes of the bitter rivalry between the Amaki and Masaki Houses was strongly connected to how Azusa Masaki Jurai became King of Jurai.

OVA5 will have some set up for Paradise war... which ends with them declaring the earth a sovereign nation of it's own.

The timeline for OVA 5 is set after the births of tenchi's first two daughters. The attached picture is my previous post sets the timeline.  The best clue is Sasami's school uniform.  For the school which Sasami is going to, it is likely she is grade 3 of Middle School.  Still, there is a chance that she is in Grade 1 of High School.

According to the timeline in Astronerdboy's blog, Sasami  was eight years old when she left Jurai with her older sister Ayeka. Sasami and Ayeka have arrived on Earth during September 1992.  Tenchi has just turn sixteen before Ayeka and Sasami had arrived on Earth.  Episode 2's time is after Tenchi's summer vacation. Because he had just turn sixteen, Tenchi had chosen to leave school due to a few major problems esp with Ryoko and Ayeka.

If Sasami was fifteen in -IF-,  she will be in Middle School.  The days of the births of Tenchi's first two daughters was likely sometime in the year 2000.  If the year was 2000, Kenshi is going to become a more mature and stronger for a boy of his age. 

The only thing which I want for OVA 5 is for to be a true sequel of Ryo-Ohki.  OVA 5 needs to center around some important events going around the year 2000 C.E.  One ideal for the series's main plot is focus on a visit to the Earth by the present Head of the Jurain Royal House of Amaki.  Of course, one of the reasons for the Head's visit to Earth is to arranged a marriage between one of his children and Tenchi's.

Since most of Tenchi's daughters are going to fall in love with most of Siena's sons,  Tenchi's oldest son and one of the Amaki Head's daughters are betrothed to be marry.  Oddly, OVA 5 can be a prequel of Tenchi Muyo: The Next Generation.  Tenchi and Washu do have a son whose destiny is connected to Masaki, the sister of the first Jurain King.

OVA 5 is  meant to be a sequel to the Tenchi Muyo: Ryo-Ohki OVA 1-4 series. OVA 4 was the last OVA in the Ryo-Ohki series.  Right now, the news of the plans for OVA 5 are limited.  One report of OVA 5 states that the series is sort of a prequel to War of Geminar. 

If there is going to be an OVA 5, it will be more likely to be a  possible sequel to Ryo-Ohki. A title for OVA 5 can be TENCHI MUYO: THE NEXT GENERATION OVA 1.  TM: THE NEXT GENERATION will focus on Tenchi's oldest son. Tenchi's only confirmed son is Washu's and Tenchi's son. 

The Masaki Kajishima -if- does give us a hint that there may be OVA 5.  Oddly, the image which I have included confirms  the year when Tenchi's first daughter was born. The essential clue to the year of the birth of Tenchi's and Ryoko's daughter is Sasami's school uniform.

For a name for Tenchi's first daughter, I want her name to be Kiyone.   Tenchi is likely going to name one of his daughters Kiyone as a way to honor his mother Kiyone.

So it's going to be 6 episodes just like the first 3 OVAs (The additional episode that OVAs 1 and 3 got apiece notwithstanding)?  And it's gonna be based on Tenchi IF, which AIC previously refused to do in favor of Ai Tenchi back in 2014?

Oh you darn betcha this feels like good old fashioned KARMA given that AIC refused to use IF for the anime before but now they're going to.  Thank you for working your magic, based Kajishima.  I'm ready for this.  Let's go.  :D

The Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki OVA series had technically ended with OVA 4.  OVA 5 is going to be a sequel.  Most of OVA 5 is likely going to be mostly based around the events of -IF-.  Like OVA 1 and 2, OVA 5 needs a strong villain.  I will expect the first three episodes will focus mostly on humor and some drama.  The best candidate for the villain is a member of the House of Amaki.  The House of Amaki had a bitter rivalry with the House of Masaki. By the year 2000 C.E.,  the bitter rivalry between the two houses is coming  to an end.  The previous head of the Amaki House who is Amaki  Shuzen had decided to step down.  Shuzen's successor plans focus on ending the bitter rivalry. Shuzen's successor plans to continue the rivalry between the Amaki and Masaki Houses primary as a means for checks and balances. Of course, some members of the House of Amaki don't agree to the present Head's plans.

One of the Head of the Amaki House's plans to focus on a political arranged marriage between the Amaki and Masaki Houses.  Since King Azusa and his wives may have decided not to have any children, the Amaki Head must focus on Tenchi's children.  Since most of Tenchi's daughter are destined to have  relationships with  most of Seina's sons,  the child of Tenchi's who can be betroth is likely his oldest son.  Tenchi does have one confirmed son with Washu.

Like I have stated before in a previous reply, the villain being a member of the House of Amaki can give us an insight into the politics of the Jurain Royal Family.  Most of the politics within the Jurain Royal Family has change over time since Yosho, Ayeka, and Sasami had left Jurai.  Strangely by the year of the birth of Tenchi's first daughter, Jurai and the Galactic Union have learn that Yosho, Ayeka, and Sasami have been found.  I will suggest that OVA 5 can serve as a prelude to the events leading up to the Paradise Wars as well as a sequel of TM- Ryo-Ohki.

Not just Amaki, but every intelligence agency of any non-Jurain power in the galaxy. They were waiting for infighting to occur between House Amaki and the Emperor for hundreds of years to then launch their own territory grab; guess what kind of mobilization was coinciding with that?

I agreed with you.  The main villain can be working with others to resumed the bitter rivalry between the House of Amaki and King Azusa. The main  villain wants to discredit the present Head of the House of Amaki.  One of the objectives for the villains can focus on kidnapping Kenshi and Sasami.  Unfortunately, the villains are not aware of the fusion between Sasami and Tsunami. Another objective of the villains is focus on disclosing the truth about Airi's and Katsuhito's marriage.  Due to actions by the Black Window,  any news of Airi's and Katsuhito's marriage will only ruffle a few feathers.

The present Head of the Amaki House wants to expose the main villain.  Some members of the House of Amaki will be strongly oppose to a betrothal between one of the Head's children and one of Tenchi's children.  I will start focusing more on the Paradise Wars series.

Post by: WarOmnimon on May 31, 2019, 06:08:25 AM
Well... it's about to become June in Japan and still no news on OVA 5.  As far as I'm concerned, a delay of game penalty has officially been declared.

This is ridiculous.  AIC has made so many mistakes in the past 5 years with this franchise beginning with Ai Tenchi Muyo!, and as everyone knows, I have openly called them out every step of the way; you can look at some of my previous posts to see that, because yeah, I'm not going to talk about those mistakes again right now.  But the fact that they would resort to actual carrot dangling (Saying that something is going to happen and then holding back on it without any official statement noting that said something has been held up) shocks even me.  There's the whole honor thing going on with most businesses in Japan, and to think that AIC would say something and then not do it kinda defeats that purpose.

At this point, I truly believe that Kajishima seriously needs to consider finding another company to run the anime side of Tenchi as a franchise.  AIC has made too many mistakes for 5 years straight (The only thing they even remotely got right between 2014 and 2019 IMO is OVA 4) and now they've even resorted to carrot dangling.  I can't trust the franchise in their hands anymore after this screwup; call it the straw that broke the camel's back if you want, because that's what it is.  Perhaps Kajishima could consider some of the studios that have done the anime adaptations of other Fantasia Bunko franchises (Remember, Fantasia Bunko handles Tenchi's printed material such as the novels as has been pointed out before).

Post by: WarOmnimon on May 31, 2019, 11:10:38 PM

Yup, exactly.  Whatever company Kajishima would potentially jump ship to being another Japanese company is a given detail there.  There are many other companies that he should consider working with instead of AIC from this point onward IMO, especially how they are acting right now.  As I said, referencing the companies that have done anime adaptations of other Fantasia Bunko franchises would be a good starting point.  And as I also said, I no longer trust AIC to handle the anime side of Tenchi.  Not after they actually went and promised us OVA 5 news for May back in March or April I think it was... only to not deliver on their promise (It's June in Japan now).  Hitting the fanbase with a straight up bait and switch and then "Look at this!  Wow!  IT'S @#$%ING NOTHING" is MUCH worse than what they did 5 years ago (Reminder, 5 years ago is when we had to deal with Ai Tenchi Muyo!, so yeah... you KNOW it's bad if the current situation is worse than even Ai).  The sad thing is that after OVA 4, I was actually thinking that AIC would treat the franchise with respect again... and then look where we are now.

EDIT Some additional thoughts.  While I'm still on the subject of Kajishima potentially letting another anime studio handle Tenchi (Whether he will or not is a different story, but I will once again say that he should at this point), I'll bring up one franchise that has already done just that, and did so in a way that worked.  And like Tenchi, its printed material is handled by Fantasia Bunko.  Yup, I'm talking about High School DxD.  Those who follow DxD like I do know that the first 3 seasons (The latter two of which were known as NEW and BorN) were handled by the same studio.  But then, BorN went and ended in a way that messed up the entire canon.  Do you know what happened for Season 4 (HERO) because of it?  Simple; they changed studios, and HERO even got an "episode 0" beforehand whose sole purpose was to quickly recap everything that happened in the first 3 seasons, and also show what SHOULD have happened in BorN episode 9, therefore correcting the canon in the process.

If this means that a studio change would result in Tenchi OVA 5 having a recap episode of some kind (Which if they follow what DxD did wouldn't have to change any of the story's events, but I could still see a recap episode of some kind happening) beforehand, I say go for it if Kajishima has the option.  And I truly feel that he should consider an escape route given that AIC literally lied through their teeth about the OVA 5 reveal.

Yep, and if AIC goes out of business, things will become a nightmare for the franchise.

But let's face it, things already HAVE become a nightmare for the franchise outta nowhere.  AIC is not in good financial standings right now (Hence the Kickstarters), the studio that handled OVA 4 went bankrupt last year, and AIC even went as far as lying through their teeth about the OVA 5 reveal happening in May... which it never did.  The former 2 situations are understandable, but the latter is what I am calling them out for and why I no longer trust the anime side of the franchise in their hands, because they didn't even bother to give a statement as to WHY the OVA 5 reveal never happened when they said it was going to.

TLDR If AIC had actually come out and said "oh, we can't do the reveal right now so hold on a bit longer", that would have been a different story.  In that case, they would have been, you know... ACTUALLY COMMUNICATING WITH THE FANBASE.  Something they actually bothered to do during OVA 4's run (I mean, they even announced the final episode's delay in a proper manner).  But they didn't, which means they willingly lied.  Hence my current reason for not trusting them.

Well... even if so, I'm sure Kajishima (Who created the Tenchi franchise don't forget) can somehow tell AIC "this isn't working, we're done" if he really wanted to bring it somewhere else.  Given what has been happening with the franchise between the Tenchi IF anime being declined in favor of letting Negishi throw Ai Tenchi Muyo! out there 5 years ago (Which may I remind you almost killed the franchise) and now AIC lying through their teeth about the OVA 5 reveal, I'm sure Kajishima has to be at least considering a "see ya, I'm going for greener pastures".  I mean, look at Naoko Takeuchi (Who created Sailor Moon) and how she tells Toei "if you change the story, it can't happen" all the time in relates to Sailor Moon adaptations as of late; if Takeuchi doesn't like it, she doesn't let it happen.  The franchise creators usually DO have say is what I'm trying to say here, and Takeuchi's a fine example of that.

But really, my point wasn't to start a debate as to who does or doesn't own the rights to Tenchi Muyo! as a franchise.  Honestly, it's not my area of expertise at all (All I know is that AIC handles the anime, Fantasia Bunko handles the printed material, and Kajishima is the creator of the original works).  My point is that I feel that Kajishima needs to somehow get it away from AIC after the horse manure they've been dragging Tenchi through lately between Ai Tenchi and then most recently actually lying through their teeth to the entire fanbase about OVA 5.  As I already said, the only thing AIC (Key word is AIC, not Kajishima; don't forget that the novels have been coming out consistently still and those are written by Kajishima) did even REMOTELY right in the past 5 years is OVA 4, and I stand by that statement.  I also stand by not trusting them with the future of the franchise after lying about the OVA 5 reveal and not putting any effort to say to the fans "hey, the reveal was held up for this reason or that reason".  They just don't care like Kajishima does and it's starting to really irritate me; I'm sure that I'm not the only fan who feels this way.

Another case in point as to being irritated in a similar way; Digimon.  Bandai Namco is willing to take it in so many different directions on the merchandise and video game side as of late (They did so many awesome things with the video games, they still are, and even bought the virtual pets back, with a US release of the Ver.20th en route this year), but all Toei wants to do on the anime side is Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure, and more Digimon Adventure.  When comparing Digimon to Tenchi, AIC is to Toei as Kajishima is to Bandai Namco.  It's annoying, it's been happening with Digimon for the past 5 years, and seeing this also happen to Tenchi within the same timeframe is just, GAAAH...

TLDR The same exact thing has been happening to Tenchi and Digimon - 2 of my favorite franchises - for 5 years, and I can't stand it.  So of course I'm going to end up saying things out of context, without thinking, and so forth over it.  Especially when it comes to "who owns what" which with Digimon I am more in the know about than with Tenchi.  At least the discussion has been civil, we haven't been getting at each other's throats or slinging mud, and that's the best part; you guys are all awesome.  :)

True, which is why GXP, OVA 3, and WoG weren't created until Pioneer/Geneon left. So I knew Pioneer always had a lot of say on the anime side, but I just never realized they also had a partial copyright hold on the early Tenchi production stuff.

 For OVA 5, I do want it to be a sequel to the Ryo-Ohki series.  The series' timeline is set during the first decade of the Twenty-first century. If Tenchi is becoming a father. I want the names of his first two daughters to be Kiyone and Achika. Achika honors Tenchi's mother from Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo.

Post by: takahata on July 18, 2019, 10:13:42 AM
I want to see the main villain of OVA 5 to be a member of the Jurain Royal House of Amaki.  If the villain is from the House of Amaki, his goal can focus on attempt to discredit the present Head of the House. The present Head of the Amaki is likely focusing on the stage of ending the centuries long bitter rivalry between the House of Masaki and the House of Amaki. The Head plans to let his house to continue to be the main rival of the House of Masaki. Like I stated before, the Head of the Amaki House travels to Earth to discuss  the matter of arranging a political marriage between two of the children from the two Houses. Since most of Tenchi's daughters are destined to married most of Siena's sons,  Tenchi and Ayeka will have to focus on a betrothal with their oldest son and one of the daughters of the Head of the House of Amaki.

Arranging the betrothal between Tenchi's and Ayeka's oldest son and one of his oldest daughters is the true objective of the Head. The Head of Amaki, Tenchi, and Ayeka will allow their two children the option of ending their engagement when they become adults.  For some members of the House of Amaki, they are opposed to the betrothal plan. Most of those who are opposed to the betrothal plan, they are merely stating their opinions. For the villain, he is opposed to the betrothal because he felt that the present Head of his house is betraying it. The villain can form an alliance with one of the illegitimate Space Pirate Guilds.

Aware of the villain's plans, the Head of the Amaki House tricks the villain into believing that he had made a betrothal agreement with Nobuyuki and Rea. Tenchi and Ayeka are aware of the Head's plan as well as Nobuyuki and Rea.

For some humor,  Airi and Katsuhito's third wife come to Earth to ask their husband to have another child with them.  If Tenchi becomes a father, he finds himself in funny situations like changing diapers and dealing with Ryoko's  and Ayeka's problems with becoming mothers. Of course, Ryoko and Ayeka have two women to ask for advice on motherhood.

For Mihoshi, I want her to become less like  Universe's Mihoshi and more like her own parents and brother.

So re-watched OVA 4. My opinion hasn't improved one iota. There are some nice moments. Ryo-Ohki waking up the whole household. Ryoko and Ayeka refreshingly NOT being jealous of Minaho spending so much time with Tenchi. Tenchi's dad and grandfather's discussion of Kiyone. Minaho and Tenchi's conversation is also very interesting.

But it's all exposition and set up. None of the original OVAs humor, character interactions or action is in here to spice up the world building. It makes even less sense to me now on why these episodes were made, knowing it was intended for the Japanese fans. Besides seeing Nobuyuki and Rea's wedding, there's really nothing here worthy of being animated IMO. Yes, I know this is a bridge between 3 & 5, but it doesn't change the fact that it's all conversations, telling the Japanese audience who have all the novels and doujins handy, what they probably already know.

It's like if they made a miniseries of LotR and only filmed Gandalf's talk with Frodo about the One Ring and the Council of Elrond.

I just want to see Tenchi's family, his "inner" family, not Misaki village, be the focus. Show Kenshi, the kids, the girls, and Tenchi's day to day life. Don't have the entire OVA be a training montage. We have War on Geminar available to us, we *already* know where all the training is going to lead.

Have some action, some comedy. I'm tired of seeing most of the main cast out of focus and/or little to no cool action or space opera stuff.

I just wish that OVA 5 has more character interaction especially with Tenchi. OVA 3 has the potential but I still feel that there's lack of interaction or dialogue with the main character which can make the series more interesting:

Seto: I hold you once when you were a baby.
Tenchi: Huh?
THE END

OVA 4 is just a drag about Tenchi's family.  :son:

Dare i say it...

OVA 4 is bad and boring because instead of focusing on the girls story arcs like OVA 1 2 and 3 it focuses on resolving tenchi's story arc and most people never even pick up on his ark / care if poor little mommyless tenchi gets over his feelings of loss and abandonment from his mother figure.

it also works on resolving nobuyuki's story ark which no one really ever cared about / was shoe horned into ova 3.


it's a nessesary story section that could have been way better executed if ova 3 hadnt been cut short by simply having minaho show up with airi and tennyo and having her be the one to talk to tenchi after he found out the truth instead of noike... granted i love that moment between noike and tenchi and i feel like thats the only moment that really legitamizes her as an ok waifu in my book... but the problem is minahos visit is a retrack of the same plotline to tie it up. also seto could have dropped off that fabric at the end of ova 3 easily as a suprise you are all getting married instead of an unannounced except in the book anouncement of a marriage right after a marriage.. which takes place right after an engagement....

EVERYONES GOTTEN TO SHOW OFF THEIR WEDDING AND ENGAGEMENT BUT TENCHI GETS A SILENT ANNOUNCEMENT OF IT! its just bad writing... expecially cause there just skipping past the marriage all together for tenchi...

#lets not forget the whole tarrant shank kiddinaping set up that is just totaly ignored.

who's to blaim AIC or kajishima.... id say both.

OVA 3 is bad sepecificly because of something no one ever likes to put the blame on. REA. people want to blame noike... noike is a good waifu and a decent character. rea... rea is a needless tie in to war on geminar. her personality is mush. her design... meh. the fact that her existance warrents an entire seasonal arc around her... bleh.

originally kenji wasn't planned to be his half brother but his granson... and honestly it should have stayed that way.

Yeah I was confused by the Fuuka thing too. I don't know why he would want to change that. Having the current Fuuka stay Kasumi would have given audiences a little more reason to care about her.

That is interesting, what does Taro's mother look like? I thought in the earlier OVAs it was always the aunt doing the baby Taro handoff.

Yep, it was.

Originally Kasumi looked like Fuuka, as the page Fap provided shows, but as of OVA4 she's very normal looking. To my knowledge Kajishima never said why he split them. The novel Washu demonstrated that Kasumi spends some time in space, so why not let "Fuuka" stay Kasumi?

OVA 4 could have much better if there was more humor in it. It would have been much better if there was an episode on Shrank's visit to Earth. Shrank's visit to Earth was disclose in one of the GXP's episodes. Shrank's visit could help OVA 4.  OVA 4  is a prequel to War on Geminar as well as marking the end of the Ryo-Ohki series.  I do  want OVA 5 to be a sequel.

About the series' main plot, it can nclude a focus on Jurain politics.  Tenchi and Ayeka can learn that the present Head of the House of Amaki wants to visit earth as well as to see them. Of course, I did disclose my ideal for the visit in another reply. For the villain, he should remain a mystery like Dr. Clay and Kagato. There can a vital clue to who the main villain may be in an early episode.

While we are on the topic of villains, there was a "Kagato Ghost" in the 1993 light novel by Naoko Hasegawa, who was in charge of screenplay for OVA 1 and 2. I think it was a regrettably short read, but at least we got the jist of what a felled Kagato presence might evoke. The problem was it tried to absorb one of Ryoko's gems wholesale, in order to command spirits from the Masaki estate as well as puppeteer people.

PREACH!  This is also my biggest problem with OVA 4.  I mean, really... there's no reason why they should have focused literally ALL of OVA 4 on Nobuyuki and Rea.  The fact that they shoehorned it into OVA 3 was bad enough.  We shouldn't have had to sit through it AGAIN.  At least it was better than the unmentionable we had to deal with 5 years ago.  Doesn't necessarily mean that OVA 4 was good, but let's face it... anything is better than Ai.  ANYTHING.

And then again, I'm sure that OVA 5 will give us Tenchi's wedding (Remember, word going around is that we're getting 6 episodes this time; they'll probably put the buildup to Tenchi's wedding and the wedding itself in there so that OVA 5 isn't just "okay here's a Kenshi Masaki training montage that lasts for 6 whole episodes"), so yeah.  I think things will be handled MUCH better this time thankfully.

#lets not forget the whole tarrant shank kiddinaping set up that is just totaly ignored.

Given that happens during the Tenchi GXP novels, I actually expected the OVAs to avoid talking about it all along.  Logically speaking, that's material for a remake / sequel (More than likely we'd get a remake rather than a sequel for obvious reasons) of the GXP anime, not the OVAs.  Frustrating, yes, but at least I can understand why the OVAs didn't go near those happenings.

In other words, whether AIC would do another GXP anime or not is a discussion for another place and / or time... but the fact that what happened with Tarrant was part of GXP's story is probably why they didn't touch upon those events in the OVAs.

Did it? To me, OVA 4 came off more as a "fill in the gaps" from other canon materials Kajishima-sensei has written. Tenchi felt like more of an afterthought to me.

Quote

I don't think it was shoehorned into OVA 3. I think AIC cut it short. Rumor was that OVA 3 was supposed to be much longer than it ended up being. And AIC tossed a bone to Kajishima-sensei with OVA 3 +1. Whether that was true or not, OVA 4 was Kajishima-sensei's way of telling the tale he wasn't allowed to tell back then.

Quote
who's to blaim AIC or kajishima.... id say both.

I don't disagree there. One of my gripes with Kajishima-sensei's writing style is that he expects people to be current with all other canon works of his. OVA 4 was difficult for me because I'd not read the GXP novels. And I hadn't seen WoG in ages. (My BD set from FUNimation is still sealed in plastic. 😅) So I was having to remember story elements from that during the heavy exposition. At least he did show some imagery from WoG during the exposition, but it was still a heavy dump.

Well, there were a lot of things originally planned for "X" or "Y" that get changed along the production route. I often watch the commentary track for movies or TV shows where the director or show runner discuss how much the finish product changed from the original story pitch or first draft. 

If I recall correctly, there are doujinshi where Kajishima-sensei publishes early drafts for OVA 1 episodes. I seem to recall that most of the modifications done for the anime version of the script were positive changes that improved things. The only change I didn't like was the conversation between Ryoko and Aeka in the floating onsen. The earlier draft version of that was far superior than what we got in OVA 1. But for whatever reason, it got changed.

OVA 4 could have much better if there was more humor in it.

I think some of the humor was more Japanese culture related. And some of it was Kajishima related. Its times like this that I miss True Sheol's insight on this aspect of TM!R.

Quote
Shrank's visit could help OVA 4.  OVA 4  is a prequel to War on Geminar as well as marking the end of the Ryo-Ohki series.  I do  want OVA 5 to be a sequel.

Since I'm not versed on the GXP novels, was Shrank's visit covered there?  If so, that's why you likely won't see it in anime form.

That aside, I honestly get the feeling that Kajishima-sensei isn't interested in doing more action stuff with TM!R. He'd rather do "day in the life" or stuff like that.

I mean, really... there's no reason why they should have focused literally ALL of OVA 4 on Nobuyuki and Rea.  The fact that they shoehorned it into OVA 3 was bad enough.  We shouldn't have had to sit through it AGAIN.

I still don't believe it was shoehorned into OVA 3. I think Kajishima-sensei always planned to have it in OVA 3, but wasn't given the episodes to do it. After OVA 3, there really was no plan for more TM!R episodes.

That aside, when it came to OVA 4, AIC didn't go for the "-If-" stuff, so he gets to tell his Nobuyuki wedding tale that he wanted to tell years ago. This is one of those rare times that Kajishima-sensei will recover old ground. Had he properly told his Nobuyuki x Rea tale in OVA 3, it wouldn't have been in OVA 4.

So this is gone over in the GXP novels then. I'd love for the GXP anime to get a remake, but I doubt Kajishima-sensei is down for that. As I see it, in his mind, the novels are enough. Non-Japanese fans don't enter his thought equations.

but they dont discuss it. they discuss it like your already supposed to know it happened and how it went down. its given a few vauge throw away lines and just enough info to let you know it happened right after the end of ova 4...  same thing with mihoshis incedent... you can tell theres only neough information given so they can have the full story elsewhere

That's the problem with Kajishima-sensei's writing style. If he's done something to his satisfaction once, he's not doing it again. To me, that's why we didn't get to see Ryoko and Aeka kick arse in OVA 3 (something that pissed me off royally). As I see it, in Kajishima-sensei's mind, we'd seen them kick arse in OVA 1. As such, there's no reason to show it again.

Because of this mindset, Kajishima-sensei doesn't feel like being bothered with spending time bringing folks up to speed in OVA 4. In his mind, true fans of his work will have read the GXP novels and watched the WoG anime, to say nothing of having watched OVA 1-3+. It is bad storytelling from the sense of reaching a broader audience. But since Sensei isn't worried about a broader audience, nor a non-Japanese audience, well...

One might say that Kajishima-sensei has gone back over old ground before. That's true, but conditionally so. The GXP novels rose from his dissatisfaction with the anime. So in his mind, he's not recovering old ground. He's fixing a problem. Ditto the Nobuyuki-Rea wedding in OVA 4. This wasn't retreading ground from OVA 3. This was fixing what he couldn't do in OVA 3.

Again, I agree with the sentiment that OVA 4 isn't "good" because it relies on audiences being 100% up to date with the canon lore. To Japanese fans, OVA 4 was great because it filled in some lore gaps and bridged the TM!R anime with the GXP novels. That's why we are getting an OVA 5.

if you read the OVA plot outline novel its pretty clear from the descriptive dialog (the text that isn't verbal) that kajishima's intent of this part of the story is that minaho arrives after his family basically made a mockery of his mothers memory and she, being the one who knew and also resembles his mother the most she takes him out with her so she can introduce herself and also help tenchi resolve his feelings of loss of his mother, as well as his lack of knowledge about who she truly was.

this doesn't translate well at all with bad subtitles (our fault) 3rd party directing (time's fault) and direct adaption (i assume everyone's fault)

examples"
[spoiler]
*the three idiots show up on the deck mizune charges and is thrown off minaho comes in*

The quiet and calm feeling of her arival was clearly different from Airi and Tennyo's,
She gave off an impression like Noike or Tsukiko did.
Indeed, the atmosphere she gave off was very similar to the one Funaho gave off.

(......... her aura feels similar to Mother's) Tenchi thought.

Of course, from the story he heard Airi and Tennyo, he learned that Kiyone was quite different, but for now Minaho in front of him seemed to embody only the good parts of his Mother that Tenchi remembered.
[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Minaho unexpectedly went and gently hugged Tenchi as he tried to greet Minaho. It felt as gentle as if he was wrapped in feathers. As usual, the girls began to wrinkle between their eyebrows,


but instead of CRYING out in outrage they eventually just began smiling at the sight.[/spoiler]


not only that the intended pacing was changed a bit minahos speech on his mother while farming comes exactly right after he is introduced to her in the next scene when they work the feilds in the anime it is cut in half by ayeka and ryoko's discussion over the fabric (which has the engagement reveal part cut wtf[spoiler]Jurai's formal wear has various meanings that can be gleamed from looking at it. By looking at it, she could tell who each piece was meant for and it even said things about the intended parties lineage and royal status. There was a systematic design in it that designated things like if one was a minor, or a member of the royal family.
In her case it said that she was was Azusa's Daughter. However, if you were married or engaged, another design was also added. In other words, the fabric for the outfits to be made by Ayeka for Ryoko and the others also revealed their true intended purpose to her.
In extreme terms, The designs showed she was was Azusa's daughter but where she had once hoped it would say Yosho, it said Tenchi.

"Either way, it's still ahead of us, so we have time to think about it."[/spoiler])... so that the

[spoiler]"Will you go out with me"

"eh?"


Minaho smiled a smiling face that Kiyone would make. However, it smile Kiyone would make when planning mischief. "What ??"

If you think about it, Minaho was still Airi's daughter and Kiyone's older sister. [/spoiler] part is moved to the end...

the reason they talk about seina so much is two fold to explain why he isnt there: his girlfreind was just brutally murdered and because widow had just been killed and they are busy receiving widow's soul to make fuku. this relates back to minaho and airi and this is simply because this is set up for their still unreleased novel.
[spoiler]"Tenchi-chan, why don't we take a bath before dinner?" Minaho smiled nicely at Tenchi. Minaho's smile was different from the kind airi would have made, it conveyed no evil intentions.[/spoiler]
 [spoiler]"Noike-san, what has Minaho been doing??"
"She's been with Tenchi-sama ever since the moment she arrived... It's like he's been reunited with his mother ..." [/spoiler]

Quote
it also works on resolving nobuyuki's story ark which no one really ever cared about / was shoe horned into ova 3.
nobuyuki had basicly no ark and then they just gave him one so they could more directly tie war on geminar to tenchi. now the literal least interesting comedic backup character and a new character has an arc that encompases like 5 episodes...

here have a one paragraph spoiler to catch you up

all you really have to know is that [spoiler]miki, seina's girlfriend has just been brutally murdered by tarrant so he isnt there, and that widow, the serial killer who destroyed airi's planet and religeon turned herself in said he captured her and that and wanted to help him so they killed her and are now transferring her soul to make fuku and that seina is basically a bajillionaire cause of that but jurai is more or less borrowing the money and racking up debt with him. also kajishima's airi is a pedo who no one likes thanks to her experience with young yosho. and mikami expecially hates this about her, mikami despite being an obvious lesbian, gets encouraged by widow to throw her hat into the ring to go after seina so she start to do so in her own way. while she was pregnate tsukiko's lover was "killed "(dissapeared) mysteriously by whats implied to be HIMC. so she informally partnered with Dai tennan to raise kiriko but she hates him cause he is an ass. she was going to marry seina because he had no other options in life but that and then he went to space so she keeps using threats of that to get kiriko to stop trying to get seina to go home because she ran away to space to keep away from seina"[/spoiler]

nothing in the novels prepares us for the stuff in the last episode concerning seina
that all is info on stuff that happens post renza arc and pre paradise war/ pre ova 5


Quote
I honestly don't have a problem with Rea. But then I didn't have a problem with Noike either. Rea would have worked better had she been mentioned in OVA 1 or 2.
in an ensemble of developed and strong women, she is a wet blanket.
[spoiler]

Since I'm not versed on the GXP novels, was Shrank's visit covered there?  If so, that's why you likely won't see it in anime form. [/spoiler]

no you think it would be, but it takes place time wise towards the end of ova 4 and only gets a one line mention in the show and novel and a mention in the tenchi crossover episode and novel.

And that's the issue.  Date A Live is literally the ONLY good thing Motonaga has done in recent years.  The rest... Digimon Adventure tri., School Days, etc.  You ain't wrong about Motonaga having directed good stuff in the past, though (Example, ToHeart: Remember My Memories, which I thought was actually pretty good... but then again, that aired all the way back in 2004 so it definitely isn't recent).  He just doesn't direct good stuff at a consistent rate anymore like he used to, which is why I'm worried.

Since each of the first Three OVA have six episodes, I can expect that OVA 5 will have six episodes.  In one of the six episodes, Tenchi can tell Kenshi  about what happen during the wedding. Of course, Tenchi is referring to the exact wedding.  How Tenchi recalls the wedding to Kenshi either by a simple reference or a honest flashback. 

I do like the ideal of the household focusing on two holidays. The holidays are likely Christmas and New Year's Day. New Year's Day is one of Japan's most important holidays.  We can see how Masaki Village celebrates New Year's Day. New Year's Day allows more characters to be seen including Siena and Kiriko.

If Kajishima wants to have a villain. I will let it up to Kajishima. The ideal of the villain being connected with the Jurai Royal Family is still a good ideal. A villain is still important.  For me, the villain needs to  be more like Dr. Clay.

Let's hope that OVA 5 is more like OVA 1 and 2. The picture of Rea seems to state that there is going to be humor in the series.  For the villain,  I just want him to be a little like Dr. Clay.

I third that opinion.

I like Tenchi Universe, Photon, and Dual! on their own terms. But the original OVAs, the characters, setting, humor, and action, that's what made me love the Tenchiverse. Well, that, as well as all the fanservice and harem antics, too, of course :heysexy:.

When I really started to get into anime waaayyyy back in 2001, I watched Tenchi and El-Hazard back to back. Which really turned me on to anime in general.
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: WaitoKon on October 29, 2019, 03:49:35 AM
Good to hear GP, makes me reminisce about the turn of the millennium Tenchi airings. Oddly enough, my first exposure in this regard was not Tenchi / Hazard despite both coming from Hayashi and Kaj essentially. Rather, it was Tenchi: Daughter of Darkness and the double-feature Slayers film that shipped with it in an oddly cropped format for DVD. Was trying to find materials to upload to animemusicvideos.org back then, and it was all Trigun, NGE and Tenchi snippets. My hometown was a few minutes drive to a major comics books retailer, and the whole back section was anime DVDs and PSX titles in the Region 1 NTSC mode. I think Sunrise had a DVD outlet back then which finally got dubbed videos out to anime fans in the states.

Tonikaku, don't want to derail this thread -- Vas are you familiar with the production planning that went into making the episode 13 pt 1 and 2 for OVA 2?

Okay no worries. My understanding was Kaj and his team were on the fence with one of the earlier Hasegawa light novels, and so reworked the Jurai elements (before the True Tenchi novels happened) to have Azusa and others make a cameo in the extended episode 13. My take on OVA V plot wise is it must consider the ongoing GXP novels as well as tie together OVA 4 and Geminar, so in essence the behind-the-scenes for episode 13 is a retrospect on what is going on today. I hope it works.

Pre-orders are up for the first episode. It also confirms we're getting 6 episodes. I'm not sure if we knew that yet.

Also looking at the site it says it has a release date of February 28, 2020. That seems way too soon even for a placeholder date.

Another site with pre-orders. Looks like another novelization as a pre-order bonus, and a Kajishima drawing of older Sasami.

Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on November 25, 2019, 03:40:56 PM
I know that  OVA 5 has the six standard episodes.  If OVA 5 has a villain, he will likely  kidnap Kenshi and Ryo-Ohki.  After the villain and his comrades kidnap Kenshi and Ryo-Ohki, they will think that they will have it easy. Unfortunately, the three villains find themselves in a Little Red Chief situation.  Ryo-Ohki and Kenshi have been allow to kidnap.  Both have been train to create the Little Red Chief situation. After the three villains experience the havoc created by Kenshi and Ryo-Ohki, they demand Seina to arrest them. The three even confess to their crime plus a couple more just to get away from Kenshi and Ryo-Ohki.  For Siena, his bad luck causes a little extra trouble for the villains and Siena plus anyone who happens to be with Siena.

Little Red Chief is a classic American story. It is about two kidnappers who kidnapped the son of a millionaire. The two men have thought that they have it easy until who likes to call himself Little Red chief causes lot of comedic trouble for his kidnappers.  The same ideal of Little Red Chief form the base of the plot for the classic movie Home Alone.

Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: WaitoKon on November 26, 2019, 05:46:19 PM
That all depends on who is around to be victimized by said villain, and how the hero in the story grows from that encounter. When season 1 ended with Kagato whisking Ryoko away, we saw Tenchi become more of a capable fighter and all the girls seemed to appreciate that. Then when he had to rescue her again because of Clay, we didn't see any improvement it was just a way to queue up the plot regarding the Choushin's search for a supreme being. In GXP, there were some better character arcs especially in the novels, and this allowed villains to change sides and make better judgment calls instead of just fall into a comedy of errors. But how that got water down or otherwise reconfigured into GXP anime, Geminar, OVA 4 and probably OVA 5 is going to be a doozy.

Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: takahata on November 28, 2019, 11:53:12 PM
First, I had originally wanted OVA 5 to be the first series of another Tenchi Muyo sequel.  The sequel  may have include  focusing on Kenshi as well as Tenchi dealing with fatherhood for the first time.  A sequel allows the development of new characters esp. if one of the new characters turn out to be the second living wife of Katsuhito Masaki. The sequel will serve a prequel to War On Geminar and another sequel which focuses on one of Tenchi's sons. Tenchi has only one confirm son. Tenchi having other children does make sense.

A villain for OVA 5 is needed . For GXP, the main villain was Shrank.  Shrank is the example of a true villain. He care mostly for himself.  Shrank was a composite of Dr. Clay and Kagato.  I like the ideal of the main villain being a member of the House of Amaki.  The primary motive of this villain was to disgrace the present Head of the House of Amaki. All the present Head of the Amaki House wants to do is to end the bitter rivalry between the House of Amaki and the House of Masaki. The Head plans to allow the House of Amaki to be the rival of the House of Masaki.  The present Head should only appear in two of the six episodes.  Oddly, the person who have thought of the Little Red Chief Ideal can be Lady Seto. Lady Seto will not mind if the House of Amaki continues to be  the main rival of the House of Masakii. Because of Lady Seto, the House of Kamaki is the most powerful of the Four Houses of the Jurain Royal family.

The Little Red Chief ideal is due to because Tenchi Muyo is still a comedy. The ideal allows a very good reason to include Kenshi. OVA  5 centers around Family. For Tenchi, he is dealing with the problems of being a new father. Before the meeting scenes in OVA 4's fourth episode, Tenchi and Seina have become fathers. For Tenchi, his first two daughters were born before the birth of Siena's and Kiriko's first son.

Really cool to see more of the GXP cast. I heard the name "Yamada" mentioned several times in the trailer, so I assume that the other GXP cast besides Kiriko & Jovia will hame a part to play in the story.

I'm hoping the episodes will be fairly long, close to 60 min each, although I could check Amazon Japan to check the runtime. Can't believe ONE EPISODE has had 3 previews! They may as well release it now at this point. ;)

Wouldn't surprise me honestly, especially given how often they were mentioned during OVA 4.

Same.  Though to be fair, if the first 3 OVAs are anything to go by (It's more sensible to compare OVA 5 to the first 3 OVAs than OVA 4 in terms of episode count given that not counting Night Before The Carnival and Final Confrontations, it also has 6 episodes while OVA 4 only had 4 episodes), most of the episodes will likely be closer to 30 or 45 minutes each if anything.  MAYBE one episode closer to 60 minutes like Night Before The Carnival was.

...OOPS, looks like I let my inner statistical nerd out.  LOL.

ok so info on jovia, she is the head wizard of the pharmacy guild in the town that barigaru takes seina to.
She is described as a woman who seems cute and innocen't but is really a total pervert, her description reminds seina of airi and so he decides to avoid becoming a magician.
She is the strongest magician they have. she is most likely going to be the one to send kenshi over to renza and or get him back if they ever do, I don't think that there going to use a machine to send him there like in dual.
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: Eff Efferson on February 01, 2020, 12:21:53 PM
by the way this is all thats written on jovia in GXP 17

i'm only half assedly translating this
[spoiler]
At that moment, another mage stepped into the place and it was as if the roof collapsed.
"Oh, sir. Are you okay?"
"Yeah, somehow. I'm just having a hard time focusing thanks to that idiot Jovia."

The mage who came in and took off their hood was an elderly man, he was sweating all over his face. He was staring at the mage called Jovia with begrudgen eyes.
"Take care to reduce the tension, take care please. It's said that luck comes to those who laugh at anger's gate."

(this may be a pun.... jovia seems to speak in sex puns alot... if you try spacing this out a bit weird bing translator mis translates this as something like)

" Have you considred paying someone to releasing some tention? they say it's good luck to cum."

"How many times do I say that you're the only one who can say such a stupid sentance..."

The teacher has been there for a long time. Isn't crystallization progressing.It's difficult for me to harden thing because of my age ..."

"But I'm I'm successful because I'm fine. is this the first time you've been able to crystalize after my long absence? It it difficult to get hard because of your age ..."

"Look, don't slap me, I'm ready to withdraw. I'll put the black curse salt into Guild once. It won't fool you.

Barigaru knew it was futile to say anything he held out his hand

"Sexual intercourse ... Because I was successful, as a reward ..."

"I don't need black curse salt that bad."

"Return ~~ Thank you ~~ So I have the right to buy everything except the teacher's share, right?"

What is pride? Is it delicious? It's like that.

Jovia was really tantalizing, but there were many men who were deceived by this because she was a beautiful woman. But, of course, the period was short, gone in an instant.

"Oh, I have to give the money to the cheats and the kid. I don't want to go back, so don't forget the stinking play! And don't forget that magical organ. That's why I made this farce."

"Yes, yes, yes, yes, it's stinky anyway. If you find that you can get black curse salt, you don't have to flirt with a mustache. Thank you, oh, thank you. Yeah. "
Jovia floated a fully crystallized magic organ buried in the salt of the black curse, he rolled it into a small cloth and threw it to Barrigaru with two magic crystals.

And in contrast, it was important to note that none of the black curse salt was pulled into a glass container, like a giant urinal bottle, pulled out of a magic bag, sealing the mouth tightly.

"Oh nice, this black glow is the best!"
The talented perver rubbed the big bottle with an ecstatic expression
 
After breaking up with the two mages, Barrigaru headed to a private office in a corner of the Guild market.
When you lock the entrance door, you pass through the reception room in front and enter the office behind.
And I opened the costume dance door in the back. It is almost an empty box with just one piece of work clothes. After confirming that and closing the door once,
「………… When I opened the door again after casting something like a spell, it turned out to be a dark space. Barrigaru stepped in without hesitation, and the next moment he came out of the closet of Herrera's study in the hilltop consulate.

"Did you go?" it was Herrera who spoke to Barrigaru.
"Of course, they're both completely emptied. Of course, you'll have to recharge them, right?"
"Evidence of that ... No, it's a witness. With that, all the nobles involved can take the title. It's easy to make up for it if you have that confiscation, is that child there too?"
Herrera smiled, Barrigaru handed him a packet of magic crystals. However, Herera, who took it with a good mood, got a steep expression on his face, and his temple had a clear blue line throbbing in it.
"... Hey Barrigaru. What is this cloth?"
"Hmm? Jovia said it was a seal-cloth  ... what's wrong?"
"That woman, it's her underwear!"
"... I thought it was a soft cloth, but ... really !?
"The embroidery design contains the crest of her house, so it's obvious! Barrigaru, didn't you notice?"
"I thought it was really familiar, but ... I guess it's normal? So ... Is it used?"
 
"If you do that, I'll kill that woman!"
"I'm a friend, why don't you laugh and forgive me? Are you annoyed if you look like a stupid dog?"
Barrigaru sighed relievedly that he was finally released from the pressure of his mission. Then, as if it were a house that you know, you take out your treasured wine from the small wine cellar next to the reception desk and unplug it.
Because the content of the story is paid only for the content, no maid stops the act. Either way, Barrigaru feels like a tavern and touches the maid's ass, so he can't deter, and Herrera always keeps her.
"You're too stupid! You know how hard I'm struggling with that stupid?"
"From my point of view, both are similar ... I think if you're forgiving me with such irony, I think it's lighter for Jovia."
"That's all I need to tell me directly! If you don't understand the usual Yota position, I'll let you go without complaining!"
"Don't listen to me ... Well, I guess he was going out of his mouth? He hates you."
"Sometimes it's better to beat me. She knows that if you accumulate it weird, it's more troublesome."
"I just know that it's good to diverge, so I'll push it."
That is, of course, Sena. He gives the toys of a habitual older woman a habit, and he is well aware of the habit.
"I feel sorry for that, but ... I can't help that. Anyway, I use this guy and it radiates with the dung."
Herrera looked at the package and smiled with a terrible smile. It's a more terrifying expression than the young face.
"However, the royal family is deeply skilled in trying to let dangerous artifacts leak out and use them. The royal family is the one who has to do so in the first place.
"Don't mess around in a war-fighting budget war, and if you're a decent person, you won't use black curse artifacts."
"That's true"
"... When will Elixir be?"
"I will take over one regular product owned by Jovia."
"Hey! There's no more black curry salt than anything else, isn't it? There's a lot of it! You can make a rare class, so don't joke it and tell it to come over!"
"Jovia says," I'll give you an undead road if it's good. "I don't want to be involved."
It is the legendary death dynasty that has transformed all living things on one continent into undead.
"What the hell? It's not as bad as an Ancient Dragon!"
"It's a remedy that cures all illnesses and even revitalizes the dead. It's a matter of undead and just a paper job. Thinking about extras, it's the same. It's their normal limbs, they don't regenerate their trained limbs, and it's common sense that they need a post-rehabilitation period, but when it's not well known, they can It seems that there were many. ''
In other words, even if there is a loss during the battle, those who assume that the extra potion can continue the battle in the same state can be done because of the poor regeneration limbs.
"Elixirs are like gambling when things can't be helped, so if you're going to use them safely, you'll have to follow the dosage regimen."
"Do you know that much a court magician?"

"I know it's different from being able to master it, and if you're going to rely on it, you're saying," It's not a decent mental state, so you're going to overdo it! " Could you be more familiar with this gossip? "
"Hmm! Good. If you kill yourself, you will kill yourself. It doesn't matter."
"Cook cook. Even though one Jovia was three times as effective as normal, he said that a similar accident could happen."
By the way, "If you do not drink, there is nothing wrong! ], But Barrigaru cut it without telling it because it is unknown.
"... I hate that girl. Oh, she wasn't the age of a girl anymore.

Sadly, Herrera turned aside with a disgusted face, regrettable that she had read inside. Well, it's like each other, but Barrigaru swallowed the word.

"I've put insects on Gand, so I'll leave it to you."

"It's already being followed by a bee. The report says you're out of town. You're also monitoring the pit burrows."

"Then, isn't the mischief of the kid at home OK?"

I drank a glass of wine quickly as there was no use here anymore. Put the lid on the wine, put it in a magic bag, and stand up.

"Barrigaru ... I was terrible because I had a bad job."

"I don't care if you don't disturb the little boy at home."

Barrigaru responds lightly to Herrera's obedient apology.

"Huh ... If" Mabiya's Thought "is genuine, I'm gonna skip it from here. But I'll definitely push it to Jovia!"
Sena was thus sacrificed to the "Perverted Hentai".
[/spoiler]

barigaru visits jovia and some dude she's really pissing off about some cyrtalised magic stuff... jovia as we've seen in the doujins often talks in dirty double speak puns that are going to be impossible for us to translate or understand. she requests sex in return for some magic salt of some sort, barigaru declines, she gives him some stuff in a jar and gives him some fabric telling him its some sealing fabric he leaves the guy he goes to points out that cloth is really her soiled panties.

some how its decided to throw seina her way.

that's it... she hasn't even met seina yet.

I am not looking foward to translating the 17th book. i don't want to... it comes out to jibberish in large parts but im working on fixing that but its all seina on this stupid planet doing dumb shit and i cant see anything important happening at all in the machine text after natori makes her debut (seina's philosophers stone becomes a waifu made of all the best parts of his waifus and washu mixed into one.)

kiriko has all the good parts in the renza ark, seina is out playing magic survivor indentured servent man.

yeah i agree.  jovia is probably going to be a pest. i really hope im wrong about her ending up as seina's wife.
natori is the red haired girl on the cover of book 17
shes the result of the philosiphers stone malfunctioning only seina can see her. shes a nice character i like her.
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/mwUAAOSwAmVcmiJ7/s-l300.jpg
 nana is the cat. actually a cobold shapeshifter that works under barigaru.

natoris name means a billion because shes "way better then nana(seven)"

why is kirikos plot better.... seina plot is expostion on magic and the world of renza... he does almost nothing hes just hunting having dinner and talking to people he meets. thinking about zinv... has an assasin after him... he owes barigaru like alot of money... its not that interesting honestly. the only interesting part is he seems to be able to contact the ai running the magic system the magic is a form of ancient technology that turns magic energy into stuff its just aho and ena essentially. i cant tell you what jovia can do. she only appears for a second and magic is essentially boundless in the way there using it they take the energy and form it into matter and physics forces so as long as they know how they want to do something they can. jovia probavly wont be using magic in the ova as it requires energy generater by an invasive plant that wont grow on earth.

kiriko on the other hand has a plot line where tha ks to the kamidake coming out to fight himc with zinv she is brought to a sham trial with renzan officials and instead of taking their abuse and their demands to hand over the kamidake miki arranges for a dual with the mech that was made for kenshi that rea said no to.  when the princes of renza see this new mech unveiled they freak out they send kiriko to the "dual ethics committee" to "learn the rules of battle" but when she arives there its a bunch of rude midevil assassins and she kicks their butts in seconds because there not even bio enhanced.  this agrivates her so she learns the most humiliating thing to do in a dual to a pilot from kaguya the ogre girl on seinas anti pirate squad. the battle starts the princes set their mechs to auto battle cause they dont even really know how to use them. they use ancient holy weapons that cause a rain of energy and they assume theyve one in one hit but kirikos mech is unphased and she lroceeds to rip off all their mechs arms and legs steal their weapons and behead them one by one totaly humiliating them. she gets paid diplomatic unrestricted acess to renza and they get humiliated. her plot line is way better then seina's the girls are killing it in this ark and seina meanwhile is just sitting round checking libraries playing with a magic storage bag and talkin to ppl at diner inbetween hunting and looking at contracts about his debts... its boring...

Honestly, Jovia looks more disoriented and annoyed than brain damaged to me, but I can see what you mean.

Going by the promos, it looks like OVA 5 will have the plot act as "connective tissue" between GXP, Ryo-ohki and Geminar. Obviously, we've all seen this for years with the doujinshi and novels, but it looks like we'll see more behind the scenes of Kenshi's training, showing stuff that connects with all those previous shows.

Obviously I hope it won't be all about Kenshi's upbringing. I can't bear to watch OVA 4 on repeat. Especially stretched out over a year and a half.

Really looking forward on seeing Jovia. Really curious on her part in all this and seeing what her character's like.

Seriously though, this is a very pleasant surprise. :) I wasn't ready for grown-up Fuku. Just from her facial expression alone you can guess her personality.

Looks like this OVA is gonna be sort of a massive "crossover" in  a sense, even though this is all the same universe. Just from these character reveals, I'm pumped. Instead of tons of boring foreshadowing to stuff we already know, we'll at least see more new characters, and see how older characters have developed. So ok, maybe to Japanese fans a lot of this may seem familiar, but at least it's new(er) to US!

Which is probably why American fans will be even more confused and rage at all the unexplained stuff lol.

if it's true to it's roots every episode will be a bit after one another except for the last two epsiodes.

the biggest difference with ova was that it all took place over 3 days where as almost every other ova episode took place on a different month or atleast a few weeks apart.

Right now, I want to know the year when the series happens. If Kajishima is focusing on what's happening in Japan during the early 21st Century, Tenchi will likely get married after he turns 25.  I will like to see the wedding. Still, It would have been a better ideal to allow Tenchi's wedding to happen before the series' first episode.

This is where we desperately need some kind of presence on Reddit, they usually have a mod post about links hosting raw scans.

My other guess is the VS Battle Fandom might have some FAQs about where to find raw ISOs.

But even so, you won't find an active seed for a while as the episodes are coming out slowly by disk instead of broadcast straight to TV sets and it is very unlikely that these collector items are going to be leaked to the Internet.

My only other disclaimer is to check with active copyrights in the market, whether it is available through a streaming service, and don't get yourselves in any sort of trouble but simply ask the right people first. Cheers. :)

OVA 4
Paradise Wars

So just to be clear, Crunchyroll is part of a larger platform including Rooster Teeth and whatever else that parent WarnerMedia/ AT&T owns. Now that they've got streaming rights of OVA V for the near future, we absolutely have to abandon any in-house sub efforts.

Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki! (season 5) is "published" on Crunchyroll's platform by a Japanese company called Happinet. They are a division of Bandai, and have probably been in the online streaming business for some time.

Saw episode 1 this morning.

The big difference between the exposition in 4 & 5, is that OVA 5 (so far) gives us NEW and INTERESTING insight and info about the characters. It's not all needless set-up for Geminar, which was nearly a decade old when OVA 4 finally came out.

The highlight of the episode was the appearance of the GXP characters for me. Quite a few interesting revelations in that convo. We learned more about Karen and Kiriko in that last 10 min than in all of GXP. Jovia was much more entertaining than I assumed she'd be. Her interactions with Kenshi and Ryo-ohki was hilarious.

That ending though. Really interestd to see where the plot goes from here. A definite improvement from OVA 4 already. Can't wait for spoiler discussion. :)

:sotw: And if it's direct to DVD/BluRay does that mean some uncensored bits?
Definitely, though any such thing would happen in later episodes (If at all).
Just to reiterate the convo in the shoutbox, I think Funimation is dropping Tenchi this year.
And this is exactly what I was afraid of, LOL. They should've known better than to bring Ai over instead of OVA 4. Something tells me that Ai failed hard here like it did in Japan and basically led to Funi pulling an abandon ship on Tenchi as a whole. That might explain why OVA 5 came over before OVA 4... in other words, Funi didn't do the research. If they were using actual common sense, they would have noticed that OVA 4 episode 1 alone outsold Ai as an entire series in Japan and bought OVA 4 over instead...

...BUT ANYWAY, back on topic. We're discussing OVA 5, not "what Funi could've and what Funi should've".
Saw episode 1 this morning.

The big difference between the exposition in 4 & 5, is that OVA 5 (so far) gives us NEW and INTERESTING insight and info about the characters. It's not all needless set-up for Geminar, which was nearly a decade old when OVA 4 finally came out.

I'm in full agreement. You pretty much nailed my thoughts on this episode... and yes, DAT ENDING THO! The words in my mind when I heard that final line from Kiriko; "You go, Seina!" He definitely "got to work", if you know what I mean. :getin:

Anyway... anyone gonna try to guess which of Tenchi's girls he's gonna "get to work" with first? Maybe Based Fap has insight. And speaking of whom...
how the heck are they just gonna sub ova 5 and not 4

Episode one only gives a glimpse to her abilities and how she really seems like an Isekai character for Southern Japan. Her magic is probably based on the later GP light novels.

Yeah, I've wondered about that, with all the Renza fantasy stuff and Jovia being a mage. It's fine for Masaki to want to write fantasy, more power to him, but...

Even with al the craziness of the Tenchiverse, with all the hyper-advanced tech and sapient trees, and the fact that our MC has three goddesses in his harem, adding magic into this setting feels weird.

Don't get me wrong, the jokes involving Jovia were great, and you can always excuse the magic as "Clarke's Third Law". To be fair, Ryoko summoned a "demon" all the way back in ep 4, and it looks like straight up magic to me. So, there's precedent.

Well, since we have 5 eps to go, and several more GXP characters confirmed already, it's safe to say we will see the rest of Seina's "Renza" harem. Judging by Jovia's intro, I'm really looking forward to seeing what Souren and the rest are like.

you know im just gonna say it. its clear why kajishima is relying on heavy exposition.


like we all saw the animation for the jovia scene

we all saw the badly drawn kiriko n other girls in my profile pic

this isnt up to artistic snuff for a tenchi ova episode its practicly on par with the worst animated episodes of the anime... the scene with the dragon the only action wcene of the show gives away a key problem.

clearly aic has no budget. this is  in many ways a glorified storyboard animation.  on par with episode 13.5... clearly aic doesnt have the budget to make tenchi like they used to.

i suspect if anything this is a sort of  intentional bottle episode meant to raise funds for the rest of the series so he kept it to set up exposition and one light action scene. not the first time.... ova 3 episode 1 was mostly reused footage after all... the first few scenes with rea and tennyo were pretty but also just pan shots and stills. and they clearly ran things low budget towards the end.

TBH, I was really worried when the first thing we see in the ep was Rea and Baby Kenshi.

I mean, it was a  sweet, but I'm thinking, "Oh God, why are we going BACKWARDS from where OVA 4 left off?" But the episode improved as it went on.

My biggest hope now is that we see the gaps in between the -if- doujns animated. That would make this OVA a huge win, even on a low budget.

By the time when Kenshi is five or six,  Sasami will be in high School. The serial series AI: Tenchi Muyo had gotten Sasami's age correct.   Sasami was the right age to enter the all girls high school  where Tenchi was disguise as a teacher.  In the -If- douj,  Sasami is in her teens.

Just saw the updated character page on the official site. I was half-joking before, but this OVA looks like it WILL be a stealth sequel to the GXP series! Woo! It's the next best thing to having the novels licensed.

I really like Seina's slight re-design. In GXP, his face had a softer, rounder look, which made sense, since he was going through puberty. He's more ruggedly handsome without completely redoing the original GXP design. Definitely looks like a proper harem MC now lol.

And of course, the return of more of the GXP cast. Including the rest of the OG harem. And Neeju is all grown up! ;)

Can't wait for episode 2! It's coming out just two days before my birthday! :)

I have just watch the first episode of OVA 5.  I want to point out that OVA 5's timeline starts between 1996 and 1997 and jumps to the year 2002.  Kenshi is five years old in the year 2002.   Siena and Kiriko are officially married. Masaki Village is still an independent village.  I need to be very patient about the plot of OVA 5. Tennyo and Rea are discussing something about what Kiyone has done in the past.  One of the habits of Kiyone is focus on her being a collector.

Oddly, the series will reflect what's happening in Japan esp in the year 2002.  Tenchi and the girls seem to be waiting for the right time to get married.  Tenchi's first wife is going to be Noike while Ryoko is the mother of Tenchi's first child and daughter.

Politically speaking, it only makes sense that Ayeka would be the first to marry.
Recall, if you will, the resistance that several members of the Royal Family had to Azusa marrying Funaho before Misaki.
I imagine that something similar would happen if it were known that the Crown Princess's chosen husband had decided to wed one of Seto's pet projects, some orphan girl who used to be a beat cop, before Her Majesty. The scoundrel! The outrage!
Reverse the order and there's sure to be a few raised eyebrows, but little more. "What? The Princess's consort has taken another bride? One of Seto's pity projects? I suppose that since she is a member of the Royal family there's no issue, but how unusual!"
If and when they learn that BOTH princesses are sharing a roof and a bed with the infamous space pirate Ryoko and Ryo-Ohki, who crippled the Jurian Navy for hundreds of years, that's sure to raise a fuss unless she makes some kind of public announcement.
"PEOPLE OF JURAI! There is no danger from Ryoko! I, your princess, have convinced her to see the error of her ways and lay down her sword! She has decided to repent and formally apologize for her past misdeeds! I have graciously taken her under my wing to personally reform her! Though she may have the occasional emotional outburst, I am a member of the Royal family, Daughter of the Reigning Heavyweight Martial Arts Champion 1200 years IN A ROW, and more than capable of handling her!
Why, dear sweet Sasami has already made a model citizen of the notorious Ryo-Ohki!"

I just wondering if they will build a new house for saina family close to tenchi house or would they port in saina's current house in masaki village 
From these pages, we can infer that Seina's home is separate, but close by.
When she gets up she already has a sweat from her fever, and by the time she reaches Seina's house, she's pouring sweat.
When she reaches Seina's house, behind her it's clearly night behind her, so she had to go outside.
From this, we can infer that it's some distance away, probably on the other side of the lake.
But it's still close enough for a little girl with a raging fever and a weak body to easily reach in the dark.

I am going by the details in the first episode. I check out your article.  While I may be wrong about Noike being Tenchi's first wife, I am referring to the Harem rank. Ryoko happens to be the mother of Tenchi's first child.  My name Ryoko's and Tenchi's first daughter is Kiyone.  Since Kiyone is the name of Tenchi's mother, it will be considered a way to honor Tenchi's mother. For Tenchi's and Ayeka's first daughter, my choice will be Achika.  Achiika is to honor the name of Tenchi's mother in Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo. 

I had accidentally remove my article.

There's a reason Noike will likely be the first wife, in addition to being Seto-sama's choice. She's the one person who can manage Tenchi's harem. There will always be a bit of rivalry between Ryoko and Aeka. Yes, they've resolved most of it, but Noike is neutral territory.

If Noike is first wife, it forms a stronger tie between House Masaki and House Kamiki. And it potentially gives Seto-sama influence within Tenchi's harem. I think that's why Seto arranged it in the first place. (Though in the end, I think Tenchi and his harem will thwart Seto-sama and maintain independence, yet still be loyal to Jurai.)

Plus, I believe Kajichima-sensei making a hentai doujinshi with Noike and Tenchi getting it on while Aeka gently shoos teenage Sasami-chan away to give Tenchi and Noike privacy is his way of saying, "Noike is first wife."

Heh. How times have changed. Back on the old AIC English forums, there were wars over whom Tenchi would choose. Now everyone accepts a harem ending, but it is all about "who's first wife." 🤣

So who's the new chick in this episode? The one seemingly sitting seiza with Seto-sama?

First Wife is not a manager role. First wife is based on love.

Azuza fought for Funaho to be first
Seina first wife was unanimously decided to be Kiriko because of Seina's love for her.

If it is going to be anyone, it has to be Ryoko. She loved Tenchi first and the only rivals for that purity is Ryo-Ohki. Also Ryoko had the first child ... so there is also that.

this, the novels were exaserbatingly brining up and compairing azusa and his relationship to tenchi's he could have married the juraian princess and had her be first wive that would've been easy but he chose to use the first wife position for love, he didn't care that funaho wouldn't be accepted at first, she deserved to be the head wife.
ayeka is the socially aceptable choice, ryoko is the wild and romantic one.

shit if i rememebr correctly even in hasegawa's shtick the situation was used to mirror tenchi's relationship with ayeka and ryoko.

the masaki family always chooses love over it's political responsabilities is a major theme.
and Tenchi's haori has to mean something. there is no other reason that ryoko would tresure it so much. I'd hate for it to mean "hey i love you still but like congrats on being second place."

Eff and Ricin are right. Ryoko #1!!! Ayeka or Noike make the most sense politically, and Ryoko as first wife is a PR nightmare, but I will always stan love above all! I can't count the amount of times I've ranted and raved at my poor friends about how Azusa is the best Kajishima protag for choosing love over convenience. I can't believe I even entertained the idea of Kajishima having Tenchi do the easy thing for even a moment! I have offended myself, and I have offended the Shaolin Temple! RYOKO FIRST OR RIOT*!


*"Riot" of course being a euphemism for being sad at home.

Wow, first time back on the internet in 4 weeks, and a new PV is waiting for me! :)

The two biggest takeaways from me, is that, we are are going to see almost the entire main cast of GXP (unless Gyoukuren will be show up in the ep proper) with Seina at least having some alone time with the cabbit girls, which will hopefully give us some backstory and plot details of the Yamada harem. After all these years, the idea of a grown up Fuku will take some getting used to.

The other big thing, of course, is that we're getting some honest to goodness ACTION again! To be fair, it's older Tenchi vs. space pirates. Not exactly a high stakes fight. But at least we'll stuff happening on screen. It's a very good sign. OVA 5 won't just be a bunch of talking head scenes.

I have just seen the trailer for the second episode of OVA 5 on youtube. In  trailer, there is a focus on Space Pirates.  The Space Pirates are likely connected to the Renza Federation.  The island where Paradise Wars is located on is in the same trailer.  Tenchi is going to use his kami powers. The timeline for the series is set between the years 2000 and 2007.

Let's hope that in one of the next trailers includes Tenchi becoming a father.

Tenchi should already be a father. Remember Tenchi's kids are born when Kiriko pregnant, so if they are planning for Kiriko to have a kid ... Tenchi is about to seed or has seeded Ryoko.

Guessing by the ages of the kids I would assume Tenchi's girls are about 2-3 years older than their husbands, so I wouldn't expect to see something as I assume Kiriko is not pregnant yet.

So we still don't have a GxP Volume 18 release? Having the OVA first before the last GxP novel volume kind of puts the cart before the horse with one of the characters in the OVA most probably having an actual role in GxP in that final novel only. I'm itching to read volume 18 even as a raw while doing my best to avoid the latest OVAs just so that I don't spoil myself which is weird.

I see. It's just that I find it kinda weird he'd go with the OVA first when the novel introducing some characters who appear in the OVA is still not out yet. But I guess Kajishima has to make do with when the studios are able to produce the anime and work on that first as they won't wait for the novels to be published.

rememeber sasami not an adult = no children, sasami adult = children. he was very obviously a father by the time of banjo island cause they describe the place as having some random ass young kids lurking about the place

There is the douj. about what happen when the teen Sasami have stumble upon Tenchi and Noike after school.  Kenshi and Ryo-Ohki had appear in the douj. PV 2 shows an older Sasami.  There is no hint about Tenchi becoming a father, but we have to wait for the  episode coming out. There is action in the episode. Tenchi is seen using his Kami powers against a large Space Pirate vessel.  Still I hope that Tenchi's first two daughters are in the series.  Two ideal names for Tenchi's first two daughters are Kiyone and Achika. Kiyone is the name of Tenchi's mother in the Ryo-Ohki series. Achika is the name of Tenchi's mother in Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo. Still Tenko is a good name for one of Tenchi's and Ryoko's daughters.

If not, then we need another cataclysm in the newer episodes to keep things moving.

And speaking of which... oh snap. They got some heavy hitters to voice Dird, Area, and Palty in particular. It's almost impossible to be an anime fan in the current era and not run into Kei Shindou, Misato Fukuen, and / or Sarah Emi Bridcutt's work somewhere. Shindou and Fukuen both voice major characters in My Hero Academia, specifically Kyouka and Himiko, while Bridcutt voices Yuzuru in Date A Live and Yuki in Testament of Sister New Devil, and while not as likely to be followed by the others here, also three characters in Kantai Collection (Yuubari, Kumano, and Suzuya).

...and that's just naming examples that everyone else here is at least somewhat aware of. I'll stop right there before this post even has the smallest chance of becoming a legitimate wall of text.

The Tenchi story may no longer exist in OVA5. In episodes 1 and 2, Kajishima just released some of the backstory he had. It's mainly about the novel GXP, novel Paradise War, and Geminar.
In episode 2, Seto was suggested to hold a Paradise War, and Seina and others preparing to do so appeared. However, the official website states that in episode 3, Paradise War will be omitted and Kenshi will play the leading role.

Post by: GP cadet 87 on June 13, 2020, 10:27:39 AM
Finally saw the episode, and...well, some interesting things, and some, not bad, weird things.

First of all, really sweet that, not only do we see the GXP cast again (without Gyoukuren), this episode revolves around them. I think it's really nice that Seina can return to earth with his family, which officially include Acha and Airen (the elf princess from Renza IIRC) now. The only sad thing is is that we only get glimpses of Seina and his girls interacting, and what their home life was like in the years between OVA 3 & 4.

It's very weird seeing the GXP cast like this tbh, but awesome too. Neeju grown up into a hot teenager where before she was a token loli character who acted like the streotypical little sis brocon. D and Mitsuki being reincarnated. Fuku having a (hot) humanoid form. NB being a hot woman's soul (?) trapped inside a robot. For any American Tenchi fan not aware of the extended material, this would be extremely confusing. I still don't know who Qwansa Panta is from watching the episode. She seems like Seto's sister rather than a clone/split personality, or whatever the hell the doujins/novels call her.

Of course, the other big thing is the introduction of the Paradise War story line. I'm really effin' confused by the whole premise. Pirates, like Vikings, are a job title, not an ethnicity/sovereign state. I don't get how unafilliated mercenary criminals can form a country. I get that there are pirate guilds, groups of pirates working together already, but why would the Galactic Federation wantt to unite them? To control crime? I really don't understand it. Seina's job I get; with his good luck, he can literally prevent anything from going wrong with the battle royale. But the entire setup for this fight is baffling to me. Can some one please

The relationship between Seina and Tenchi is very interesting now. They both grew up together as simple earthlings, but now they will be living together with their extended families. Now, like Amane and Kiriko said, they've made Earth the largest concentration of power in the universe. I would like a potential sixth season to cover the doujins of the two families living together

OK...What's the history of "Mirror Seto", aka Quis (Kuis) Panta? For a start, she looks nothing like Seto. She seems to have some sort of rivalry with Seto, based on OVA 5, episode 02. She also seems to work for GXP if Ringo is dressing both Seto and Kuis down. But Kuis (as the official subs spell her name) is well known to Sasami, Ayeka, and Noike.

What happened on Renza to have Kuis apparently unhappy with Sasami?

Also, under what context does the powerful Seto-sama have to sit seiza due to a GXP financial inquiry? I'm guessing this is referencing something they did in the GXP novels.
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: Ricin on June 14, 2020, 10:14:26 AM
Short History of Quis Panta. After the Mikagami went on a pirate killing spree, Seto went into a coma. They made a mirror warrior of her to keep her important role in intelligence and military affairs active. Now that things have calmed down, Quis is her premiere intelligence asset. Using her shape shifting ability and ability to become someone else through intense study (similar to Mimakasa Subaru from food wars) allowing Seto to plan for countermeasures of her enemies.

They are not rivals as much as they are like sisters, because they share each others memories they are extremely close and are both caught up in the same mischief because of that closeness. Both are being dressed down by Ringo because of the cost of the Renza arc story or some non-sense that was probably part of the resolution to the Renza Arc. Ringo is not powerful in many cases, but in the field of the accounts of Jurai ... there is no greater demon. Ringo is not just Seto's accountant, she is the head of the Hyena Corp. Which means if the numbers are wrong your ass his hers.

Quis would be well know to Sasami, Ayeka, and Noike because they are all relatives by adoption or by blood to Seto and as Quis is the head of the local corp (could be an odd translation, might mean Kamiki house's private internal security or intelligence and bodyguard unit) which would be in charge of their security. Quis is unhappy that Sasami spilled the beans to the others about even going to Renza.

As Seto's mirror Warrior she was ultimately supposed to take the fall for the drama and hassle at the Seina's original wedding. Instead Quis escaped to Repeushi and started helping Seina in the Renza Arc.

About why Seto and Quis have to take a tongue lashing about money from Ringo is set up in the novels early on. Seina is rich even in the context of Galactic Nations. Kiriko may be handling his finances on the home front but the money from his capture of 4800+ pirate ships, the incalculable sums of money willed to him by Widow upon her death and whatever other treasures and claims that Seina technically owns is being borrowed from by Seto for other clandestine operations. JURAI HAS BORROWED A LOT OF SEINA'S MONEY. Ringo doesn't mind personally because she knows it strengthens Seina's grip on Seto in he ever needed it, but she will not tolerate money being wasted by Seto. I repeat Ringo is the head of they Hyena Corp for a reason.

I hope that helps explain stuff.

While I like that that this OVA is tying all the Tenchi related storylines together, I also sort of wish that this that GXP and Paradise War would have been given their own shows, especially Paradise War. While I love that the events of the GXP novels have been canonized and animated, just seeing snippets of them interacting and referencing stuff during the time skip is a painful tease. It's obviously hard to sort out my feelings on this season so far. I'm not bored, angry or disappointed, but not thrilled by what I've seen either.

Showing the Paradise War story line here is taking away from the screen time of the main Tenchi cast. That's really the only major negative I have, besides the lack of comedy and action. I don't mind exposition, but the story needs to be balanced by other, more dramatic/entertaining stuff. Tenchi casually TELEPORTING INTO SPACE AND SUMMONING LIGHT HAWK WINGS LIKE HE'S TOSSING A BASEBALL was like, a minute and a half at most. I know Tenchi is OP as hell, but the scene could've been extended IMHO.

Hopefully we'll see a bit more action for the rest of the season.

So Kuis/Quis is a clone of Seto who can shape-shift? Also, did Sasami/Tsunami help in the Renza event?

While I like that that this OVA is tying all the Tenchi related storylines together, I also sort of wish that this that GXP and Paradise War would have been given their own shows, especially Paradise War.

I agree. However, I get the strong sense that Kajishima-sensei isn't interested in having adaptations made of his novels. As I see it, in his mind, he's done these stories in print form, so if folks want to know what happened, they need to buy the novels. We gaijin aren't factored into that thinking.

As such, he takes what was already established in the GPX/Paradise War novels, and then continues from there. Audiences are just expected to have read the novels and understand why characters from Dual! are suddenly on an island with an adult Seina.

Wasn't Paradise War the exact opposite of this? It was made hoping AIC would turn it into an anime. I'm pretty sure I remember reading that somewhere, probably one of Kajishima's doujins. I might be misremembering though.

OVA 5 does seem to include a major antagonist. OVA 1, 2 and 3 have a major antagonist.  I am a little confused about the details of the main antagonist.  A major antagonist will help OVA 5.

OVA 5 should include a few clues to a future sequel.  The sequel must center around one of Tenchi's sons He does one  confirm son whose mother is Washu. One possible title for the series isTENCHI MUYO! THE NEXT GENERATION.

I'm not sure there will be one. The whole reason Seina's harem is building a house on Earth Masaki lands is because it is the safest place in the universe. And as we saw, it took Tenchi mere moments to deal with a pirate ship that came by. There's no one who can touch Tenchi or his harem.

AIC doesn't have the money to do a proper Tenchi series. That is why OVA 3,4 & 5 are essentially the set-ups and interludes between arcs.

I wish they would just do a proper Tenchi series again. Maybe even do ISM 2 now that they have properly set up Geminar

We're at a point where AIC is, for lack of better comparison, the Gainax in this supposed series continuity. It is appalling that they hit such a good stride with Geminar and Star Blazers 2199 in the early 2010s only to splinter into standalone indie houses like Troyca and whomever else. I'm all for helping Kajishima-san increase visibility of the light novels if it means getting a proper Tenchi anime again, I just don't know how to begin that dialogue.

What Seto is planning through Paradise War is her strengthening of power.
First of all, I should say that her philosophy of action has been consistent since it first appeared in GXP anime. Its purpose is to secure overwhelming financial and power not only in the Galactic Federation and GP, but even in Jurai.
However, Seto is not a dictator. Seto has a character similar to that of the 戦国武将(Sengoku-Busyo); Warring States Warlords in Japan. She also has a desire for the peace.
Her behavior:
Seto succeeded in making Seina her subordinate,
She assimilated Ryo-ohki's sister battleship Fuku and Jyurai (Kiriko)'s ship Mizuki, and got one of the strongest battleships in the galaxy,
She also succeeded in marrying her adopted daughter, Noike, to Tenchi in a political fashion.
And in Paradise War, she will give the winner sovereignty of the earth and a seat in the Galactic Federation (...in my memory). However, since the Earth has the strongest Masaki and Yamada family in the universe, it would be impossible for the winner to exercise control. And Seto can exert influence on that one seat.

Hey Eboshi! Yeah, I agree that Seto has been consistent throughout. It was still surprising to see her sit seiza with Kuis/Quis when questioned by Ringo, but I have a bit of an understanding there.

Yeah he hasn't even met airen yet. He's still hasn't met jovia either.

Whoa! Seina hasn't met Jovia? Where has he been all this time when Jovia came to Kamidake II?

Which reminds me, where's Gyokuren? She was part of Seina's harem, but I noticed her MIA in OVA 5 episode 2.

The story is still stagnant in the novel GXP:
Acha is a Wau child, Airen is a princess of the kingdom in Lenza, Jovia is just a mage,
The story will not be complemented until the GXP sequel is published.

In episode 2 of OVA5:
Seina didn't attend the Kamidake II conference, so there's no shot he shows with Jovia,
My guess is that Gyokuren is a Queen of the kingdom in Lenza, so she might be in a different position than the other brides in Seina (but she was in OVA4...),
D and Miki are humanoid. Their Cabbit form has not yet been visualized in OVA.

OVA 5 episode 2 takes place after the time skip. Renza Arc is over and the Renza Royalty are simply shirking their duties so they can stay with Seina. Jovia is a bit of a mystery but remember the Renza Arc has ZINV and HIMC fighting after a year (As set-up in the Epilouge of GXP 14). Jovia could have been in the OVA 4 Kenshi meeting but probably did not fully exist yet in his mind so he just ignored her.

I hope they show Kiriko training Kenshi on how to pilot a mech, it explains his brutal fighting style in the coliseum during the invasion episode in ISM. A flashback to her fight in her mech against the men in Renza who underestimated her would be amazing but will likely never happen.

"How are you feeling d? Is this comparable to the homes in the era you were from?"
"yes" a monitor like a speech bubble opened up in front of the cabbit and the figure of D appeared.

the cabbit had a collar that incorporated transmitters that were thought linked so that the words of the clones could be communicated.
"The things I have seen have varying aspects from both the initial civilization and the various interstellar navigating civilizations I encountered, there are many commonalities.
But the image you showed me of your home planet which I saw in the documents given to me were the most surprising. "
"oh you mean Earth?"
"Yes. That is exactly like ZINV's planet, where the former master lived. It's as if I was looking at the exact same thing. "

"There's even a common point between Japanese people and Seina's country in particular. Do You know about the concept of a parallel world? "
"Yes, it's a concurrent world, do you think that's such a thing exists?"
"Yes. Actually, in the world where the former master of ZINV was born, it was confirmed to exist. And the point were it manifested was at a decision of the Master 's father that caused the world to divide into two, ZINV and the Master were the parallel world equivalents of the same person and so reality had to be reintegrated without ZINV."

"That's a terrible story, I cant believe ZINV has that kind of power."
"Maybe my planet and your former master's planet are parallel worlds?"
"I think this is technically different, but it may be the same general concept in a broad sense. Either way you met ZINV and have become my new master now. "

"... .... So, were your old master and I very similar?"
"The figure of my former master was better in appearance"
"Oh, is that so ... Ha ha ha ... ...."
"But the astral pattern seems to be quite similar. That's why ZINV awakened and you became It's master Mr.Seina...Miki and Kirche are also very similar in nature to the people i once knew. "
" Miki sempai and Kirche?"
"Especially Miki's appearance, She looks almost exactly like the person I once knew. ZINV told me that people like kiriko are gathering around master Seina with the astral patterns that closely resembles the four people who lived with my former master. It seems like things balance only when four people who resemble our whole group are gathered though not when 4 who are all similar to each other each other assemble."

Mirror seto is. Quis is just an avatar. A fake persona that seto and mirror seto use to get privacy. In gxp part 2 seto has a scene as quis where she talks to dr.clay and reveals that as Naja she had a crush on clay.   

Quis is Clark Kent mode for seto. and the mirror isn't supposed to have her own personality she's supposed to be a mirrored extension of seto but that synchronization broke .

"Do you resent washu? Do you want revenge?
"So... I'm guessing you're still mad at Washu... do you still want revenge?"
---revenge here can also mean a do over-----

"I do not! I mean that from the bottom of my heart! I have decided I want no part in anything naja akara and washu hakubi are up to! they are pestilence gods. devil women who would only waste my money!"

"Yes... but... Naja Akara has died, don't you know that?"
"You don't know that woman they call Naja Akara.She is far worse then washu, She's an evil woman who loves to make a scene, I refuse to believe she's dead, it's been 5,000 years since they thought washu died and she's still alive now isn't she? "
"well maybe... But wouldn't that be a bit coincidental, I bet that would make you a little nostalgic..."

"The only thing that they remind me of is the era of my greatest bout of bad luck, it was a terrible point in my life!"
"Well, I don't think she hates you ... But well, I understand your feelings about her ... ...."
Kuisu broke her line of sight and bit down to the bone on some thigh meat.

"Why are you talking as if you know Naja ?"
"They have plenty of records and data on her."
"Oh, by the way you also have a similar person named Seto where you live,
if you imagine her being even more childish and restless then you have Naja."
"I...Is that so ... That sounds dreadful.... Doesn't it."
Although he was certainly approaching the truth, he didn't reach it not because he was unable to, but he unconsciously stopped himself from reaching the conclusion. In other words, He really didn't want to be involved with them from the bottom of his heart.
(I'm not going to be tsundere about it, but I'm a bit lonely as someone with the same memory as her.)
 
all memories will become nostalgic memories with the years ...
 honestly she was grateful for his opinion because she really didn't want to involve clay. He was a troublesome person to make an enemy of.

I can't believe I just noticed this.

Anyone else realize that Seina looks completely different from his 'classic' GXP look from OVA 4 episode 4? Remeber that Kenshi is probably somewhere 4-6 I believe in that episode, so Seina should have gone through puberty at that point.

I remember reading Eff's summaries of Paradise Wars that Seina is using an alias while he oversees things, but has he also disguised himself?

So Quis is an artificial being?
I think so. But it's not clear to me how Seto did it.

Because little is known about Kuis-sama apart from her involvement in Seto's intelligence ring, she could be a THIRD Seto from the beginning arc to GXP (Dual OVA). I don't think Kajishima is pulling too many rabbits out of the hat with this, the whole gang is just finally coming together from existing verses.

In addition, Eff, what was the last count of political power bases scattered throughout the known galaxy? Right up to OVA 3, Jurai and Airai were the biggest, and the latest episode covers some new effort to now round up the extant pirate activity and pool the captured ship crews together into one nation state. Was that Mihoshi helping in the exchange?

Anyway, I just wonder if Kajishima is a study on the Drake equation statistics (https://www.axios.com/milky-way-intelligent-alien-civilizations-318a60e0-df41-4bf3-9706-8be70e7c3268.html), which has hit the news again. From the link:

Quote
What they did: The new study uses Earth as a model for how life may form in other parts of the Milky Way.
"There should be at least a few dozen active civilizations in our galaxy under the assumption that it takes 5 billion years for intelligent life to form on other planets, as on Earth," Christopher Conselice, co-author of the study, said in a statement. "The idea is looking at evolution, but on a cosmic scale."
The new estimate factors in the likelihood that stars host Earth-like planets in their habitable zones and the history of star formation throughout the galaxy.

OVA 5 should include a mystery involving what happen to Washu's old friend and colleague Naja. Lady Seto  is likely  Naja's daughter.  I do suspect that Ryoko and Ayeka having  their first two daughters.  The best names  for Ryoko' and Ayeka's daughters are Kiyone and Achika.  Kiyone honors Tenchi's mother from Ryo-Ohki. Achika honors Tenchi's mother from Universe and Tenchi in Tyoko.

He never even married kiriko amane ryoko and neiju.never made it to the alter. He may have some how ended up married to jovia. Of course we don't know what's happened since gxp isn't done.

But from what I understand  there talking about on earth. Seina will officially marry kiriko on earth the others will be adopted  out of wedlock children there for legal reasons

So I'm finally caught up and I only have two thoughts:

1. They need a budget. I wonder if kickstarter backed by the super fans would have helped these OVAs.

2. What comes next? These OVAs are all about talking to further build this world... but is it leading to anything? Is there a reason we need to know all these characters and their relationships? I'm hoping the next series is less about telling, more about showing.

In general it is always nice to visit the Tenchiverse but I can't shake the feeling that I'm settling for less here.   
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: WaitoKon on June 28, 2020, 12:25:46 PM
They had a budget. They (Anime International) worked with Xebec on Geminar, and did a 2012 re-release with Funimation for the OVA 1 / 2 on BluRay. It is not like Ai Tenchi Muyo drained them.

edit: I should clarify, Funimation apparently did not want to continue doing business in the overseas distribution after Ai Tenchi. According to comments on OVA 5's Crunchyroll page (and a smattering of AnimeNewsNetwork updates) it sounds like the material is in limbo and CR probably has enough Tenchi fans on board to want to host it.

I  like the ideal of OVA 5 being a sequel of the Ryo-Ohki series.  IF OVA 5 was a sequel, there can be a typical 12 or 13 episode season. Right now, I am wishing that there is a second season of Gemianr and THE NEXT GENERATION.

Agreed. The GXP anime needs a reboot. The old series is almost like night and day from the novels. Besides, it's obviously not canon  anymore. I think the Tenchi fandom in Japan seems 'healthy' enough to warrant giving Seina and Co. the FMA: Brotherhood treatment

The cast has grown so large that 26 episodes minimum to give everyone proper screen time.

The problem with that is it's not going to nessesarily fit into 26 episodes.  Atleast 4 episodes of content were cut. Some things clearly were cut out because there not tv friendly.

Your not going to see corpse fucking couch fucker ed from mask wearing tarrant on tv. Or seina getting a nude private dance by maya. Or ryoko exploding into a bloody corpse mess. Or washu molesting seinas waifus. Probably won't be allowed to discuss maya fucking a royal and squirting the jizz into a cup to illegally ensemnate Alan's wife either.   

Also don't forget there's alot of clucking hen scenes I cut out from my translation that do nothing to further the plot. If you want to know what a clucking hen scene is it's the entirety of ova 4 episode 4 where the girls all sit around in bulk and specualte on the plot and swoon over seina instead of the plot happening.


I hope one day to have enough tenchi footage and free time that I can finish my fan visual novelization lol. It really makes me want to see a reboot. 

The novels capture so much that would be lost in translation to show but I still wanna see it lol.

You know I'll be honest, I had no idea he was involved in Ai Tenchi Muyo, a show I cared very little about in the first place. I'm mostly just trying to figure out where the original magic came from and how it could be regained. I did like a few of Negishi's other shows like Black heaven. As far as the continuation of Tenchi goes, my ideal scenario would be isolated stories in movie form. Ideally, something that still focuses on the main cast.

Perhaps the Tenchi manga creator Hitoshi Okuda would be willing to help Kajishima with writing stories featuring them? Say what you want, but he genuinely loves and is interested in the characters.

In OVA 4, it is indicated that Seina is married to all eight girls. But then OVA 5 muddies the water.

we have no concrete idea if he marries the girls at the end of the renza ark yet. but yes you are right it sure does.

(Back after a hard drive tragedy)

As far as I can recall from the novels the ones said to be Seina's wives in marriage are Kiriko, Amane, Ryoko B., Neige, and (cabbit by participation) Fuku. Miki, D, Kirche (a.k.a. the rest of the Dual! girls) are cabbits so at most all of them are also cabbits by participation during the first ceremony. Note that this ceremony never really finished as Seina was kidnapped by the Renza Court Ladies (Karen, Suiren, Gyokuren, Hakuren). As I don't have a text file copy of the last GXP Novel volume yet I can only go by the post-Renza-time-skip scene in the GXP anime where it was implicitly shown that apparently Seina married the Renza Court Ladies as well (making 8 wives in the first ceremony + 4 cabbits). This fits in well with the stuff shown on OVA 5.

As for other wives in line for Seina, it was explicitly implied via various characters' dialogues that Seina will be made to marry more and more "volunteers" women because it will allow the many political bodies in the galaxy to monitor his existence well.

The most obvious ones "waiting for the next few rounds of marriage ceremonies" based on their dialogues in the novel are: Tatsuki Ringo, Minaho, Kuramitsu Mikami, Tsukiko Masaki, Kuisu Panta, Kagami-Seto (via Kuisu Panta).

The ones implied who are going to be "made to marry" Seina (a.k.a. being officially "assigned" to deal with duties regarding him) are Minaho's Court Ladies: Mizune Masaki, Otoka Masaki, Fuuka Masaki. And Mikage (who is still a baby in Jurai) is also "reserved" to marry Seina in the future. As of OVA Dai Yon-ki Mikage and co. have stated they aren't allowed to publicly and officially meet Seina yet (although they are already in charge of his finance management in the galaxy) because it is still not publicly known in the Galactic Federation that Yosho and the Masaki Family of Earth are actually alive. They will be given permission to directly interact with Seina after Yosho's survival declaration and the inclusion of the Masaki Family of Earth to the Royal Houses' ranks.

Apart from them, the rest of the ladies implicated to sooner or later also get a piece of Seina are the Renza girls Sojyu, Kaguya, Airen, (Souren??? Daga otoko da.), Jovia, Maya (just wants the DNA), Makihi (Maya's mom so maybe after DNA ONLY as well), Acha (still a kid in the novels but she's a living sacrifice to Seina and JINV so she can't go home to her planet and stays with Seina), and really, just hints and bits and pieces blended in through the novels' dialogue so it's hard to really count the rest. JINV's humanoid terminal and the Philosopher's Stone's humanoid form might also be included there for all I know but that's going to at least be hinted by the last volume still not out. It has been confirmed by Yosho though that Airi does want a piece of Seina which is why she keeps on bothering him, and Yosho has stated that she will probably mellow out if Seina gives her what she wants. He apparently doesn't mind taking care of the resulting offspring back on Earth (that's some complicated husband wife understanding there).

Not quite. This is Jailbait Sasami, late teens, probably still in school.
Full Grown Sasami is physically identical to Tsunami.
The easiest way to tell is not by Sasami, but by Kenshi and Ryo-Ohki. He's at the same point as in the last panel here, still a few years from going to Geminar, and episode 3 isn't long after 2, so we can assume Ryo-Ohki is full grown in both.

Kenshi is five years old in episode two. Rea had stated that Kenshi will be of school age.  The year for episode 2 is likely 2002. For the year of the birth Tenchi's and Ryoko's first daughter will be set in a later episode. Ideal name for Ryoko's and Tenchi's first daughter is Kiyone. The name Kiyone honors Tenchi's mother.

Well, episode 1 had JP Blu-Ray sales in the range of USD $87K according to another forum member months ago. That is enough to secure 5 key animators and do some promotionals. Episode 2 did show an improvement in both art direction but there were still missteps. I'm with Astro and a few others, they should have started another anime Geminar style with perhaps the True Tenchi novels as source material.

Finally watched episode 2. It was an improvement over the first episode, but still pretty dull. At least this episode we got a few different locations for the exposition dumps.

So, the question that has been popping up in my head with OVA 5 lately is "Where is Katsuhito/Yosho?"

Am I missing something there?

I can think of intriguing reasons. Spending time with Airi? Could they possibly setting up the "death" of Katsuhito? How long has he been the old man at the shrine? Might it make sense for him come back as someone else younger while training Kenshi? (Although, IIRC, Kenshi refers to him as an "old man" when people asked him who trained him.)

But that's just wild speculation, really.
I also find it interesting that there seems to be an odd Katsuhito sized hole in the group shot in the opening credits... and that Seto's legs are not finished, as if someone is supposed to be in that spot.

So, the question that has been popping up in my head with OVA 5 lately is "Where is Katsuhito/Yosho?"

Am I missing something there?

I can think of intriguing reasons. Spending time with Airi? Could they possibly setting up the "death" of Katsuhito? How long has he been the old man at the shrine? Might it make sense for him come back as someone else younger while training Kenshi? (Although, IIRC, Kenshi refers to him as an "old man" when people asked him who trained him.)

But that's just wild speculation, really.
I also find it interesting that there seems to be an odd Katsuhito sized hole in the group shot in the opening credits... and that Seto's legs are not finished, as if someone is supposed to be in that spot.

Katsuhito has been known to fake his death.  Katsuhito can transform into a forty-something man  When he is true self, Katsuhito looks like he is his thirties.  In OVA 3's special episode, Katsuhito tells Tenchi tells the truth about himself.. Katsuhito is seen during Siena's visit to Earth. Ayeka and Ryoko are aware of Katsuhito's true identity.  Due to the location of the Masaki family Shrine's location, all Katsuhito has to do is to fake his death.  Almost everyone in Masaki Village is aware of what Katsuhito does to protect his true indntity. Even while the Masaki Family Shrine is an active religious  site,  it will seems that almost all of the people who visit the Shrine will not notice the sudden change in the Chief Priest of the Masaki. Only the few who know the truth are aware of Katsuhito changing his identity, again.

Where is he now?
They mention him in passing when talking about making the "Earth Masaki" group between the two combined households, but not where he is or what he's doing. Not in the cast list for episode 3 either.

Katsuhito has appeared  in the fourth episode of OVA 4.  Due to Kenshi;'s mastery with the sword, he has been trained by Katsuhito.  Katsuhito would  be alive by the year 2011.  I encourage you to check out the Tenchi Muyo Wiki site as well as  ask Antivasima.

It's been at least a little while since, maybe a year. Ep.2 featured Kiriko talking about being sorry that Amane and Gyokuren weren't able to better advocate for Kenshi in the meeting.

but at least I know I haven't missed anything. I seem to know as much as anyone else about it."official business" is intriguing.As he's still secret it can't be Jurai business but I just got to the Paradise War doujin about Miron Pham being one of those people in Japan that know about everyone's connection to space. I guess he could be off smoothing over all of the increased activity.

Not likely. For one, AT&T are valuing it too highly- so not likely to sell. Plus, if they lowered the price and were sold it still might not matter as Crunchyroll seems to run pretty independently. I had the same worries during their previous buy-outs. Basically they've gone from Independent company> bought out by One company > Time Warner bought that company > AT&T bought them.

I guess there could be a slight concern because Sony already owns Funimation and there might be consolidation and probable price increases.

Tenchi-wise, Funimation is the current licensor for the rest of the franchise but seem to have passed on 4&5. If they were to consolidate, they'd have them exclusively again. Not that that's a huge issue either. Crunchyroll still sub-licenses their own releases through Funimation- despite the apparent conflict of interest. I would not be surprised at all if Crunchyroll releases 4&5 as a dual set once 5 is done. At one point they were supposed to move their releases to VIZ but that hasn't happened yet.

Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: Nonsuch Ned on August 29, 2020, 10:03:37 AM
I'm not fluent, but my curiosity got the better of me.
...so, Tenchi insta-kills the Borg...
At least watching the raw allows me to be one of the first to make a joke like that.
 :speculate:
Wedding prep or not, the point of the entire OVA seems to preparing Kenshi. It will certainly feature sending him off. My question is whether or not they will also feature them bringing him back.
This episode also seems to confirm another consistent feature- showing what happens AFTER a story line told elsewhere without revealing the details of that story.

Since time goes so quickly on the other side, all of the events in Geminar could have spanned a couple days on their side. They could bring Kenshi back a week after they send him and Kenshi would return the oldest and most battle-hardened of the bunch-- with more kids than Tenchi OR Seina.

So, this series could very well end with them retrieving him.

I also am slightly curious if they do something else... might the  solution be to do a "Dual" and merge the Dimensions?
I know... big problems with that. In order to merge the dimensions the two before had to be destroyed. And if certain hints are to believed, Geminar is a far-faaaaaaaaar future version of Photon's "Sandy Planet"... which was shown to be a version of Earth.
I still think it's an option. Kajashima isn't usually into breaking parties up and while leaving Kenshi on Geminar would mean he loses his Tenchi family, bringing him back means Kenshi loses everyone he loves on that side.

Part of me hates the idea of merging the universes. I think they will bring Kenshi back, he will miss everyone and go back to that universe similar to Dual! PTA. I just want Tenchi and Seina to get married. Also who would be Kenshi's #1?

Chiaia Flan is your most likely, Yukine also has a strong claim. Also given that the kids would be wards of the state (assuming he has males) ... he could have  some kids and leave and it would be fully in line with that world's rules.

I would have liked it more if Tenchi and his crew visited Kenshi in their world as they could spend a year and only be gone a few days in their world.

Guys, the third episode has been uploaded already, with subs!

We went from a two-week wait to two days; I don't know whether to be happy or annoyed right now.

Edit: Well, now I'm DEFINITELY annoyed. At the 7 min mark, the audio and subtitles go out of sync. YOU ARE THE OFFICIAL SUBBERS FOR THIS CRUNCHYROLL, WTF?! i was so happy too...

Well, I'll try my best to soldier on, but this shouldn't happen with a major distributor; if you're gonna get out the subs faster, make sure they're up to standard quality!!

Edit 2: Ok, I went to Crunchyroll's page to watch it directly, it worked fine there.
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: GP cadet 87 on August 30, 2020, 12:20:38 PM
Sorry for double posting, just wanted to get my thoughts down about the episode while it it was fresh in my memory.

This episode suffers a lot of the same problems as the first episode. The second episode was all dialogue too, but at least I gave a damn about what the characters were saying. It's really cool that the Yamada and Misaki families are become physically and emotionally close. Even if it lacks the comedy or action that made the original OVA episodes so good, at least it's moving their story forward.

I REALLY feel all the Paradise War stuff should have been it's own spin-off OVA. While the Japanese fans obviously know who the PW character are already going in, I have no idea what they're like from this ep, and why I should give a damn about them. I understand the whole war games set up, and that's interesting tbh, but the ENTIRE episode was just the Masaki family hanging out with the PW cast, and not even INTERACTING with them in any meaningful way. If it wasn't for that closing poignant scene about Tenchi deciding to finally marry his harem, this whole episode would've been a complete waste of 28 minutes of my life.

The small budget of these OVAs really becomes painfully obvious too. The scene with Tenchi/Kenshi running in the forest was just ugly.

There is so much potential for good storytelling here. Just having Seina and Tenchi talk would've been interesting on it's own. Two guys who grew up together, one an ordinary dude who found out he's an alien prince of a galactic empire and the incarnation of God; the other a walking disaster area who became a galactic hero with an enormous harem of ever-growing number of women, going on adventures in space.

I really hope they drop this stupid tie-in shit; or at least TRY to make it interesting, but that's impossible. We know what all this training with Kenshi will lead up to.

Have Tenchi and Seina's wedding, and let's focus on the characters that we're actually interested in.
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: Maysiiu on August 30, 2020, 01:34:12 PM
Agreed. I feel like the PW elements are incredibly complex and could have their own OVAs. Either that or make the episodes longer to expand the narrative. The animation is jarring in this episode, some stills very pretty, others looked downright eye watering. Understandably it comes down to budget, but I guess we're happy to have got this far in the anime?!  :spends:

I have to admit seeing Tenchi finally coming to a conclusion (even though we already knew the outcome) felt like a relief and the narrative hopefully can move forward for the main Masaki family. I did enjoy the episode, especially the Tenchi / Ryoko scene (oh the nostalgia!)

I'm hoping for more detailed doujinshis past the IF series re: expansion of the Masaki family rather than the anime.

I'm stuck without internet and electricity and I had to go to Walmart to get internet to watch it raw... But I'm so stoked for seeing the episode with subs. So much fan service and when fuku throws people I fucking die laughing she's become an anti perv security system. I hate that my japanise is good enough to know alot of what's being said but not heavy details like ryoko clearly told tenchi she never thought she'd be happy like she is now. I need detaaaaails

A few more cute moments than the last two episodes though.

Good news for ya. The narrative probably will move forward for Tenchi and the girls. Something I noticed with the official website for OVA 5 after the release of episode 3 (Which I still haven't watched yet; gonna wait for a proper encode) that I'm surprised hasn't been mentioned yet; there were no new characters added to the site after episode 3 was released. To summarize the history of that...

Right after episode 1 was released: GXP cast (Seina and his harem) was added to the characters section, along with a few others
Right after episode 2 was released: Paradise War cast was added to the characters section (They got around to changing Sasami's images to teen Sasami, but that happened a good amount of time after episode 2's release)
Right after episode 3 was released: Characters section remained untouched

It's looking like we're getting what we were hoping for in the second half of this shebang. Seatbelts, everyone!

and I have to say, he's run out of series to tie into and I'm guessing he'd want to keep other GXP elements that tie into Renza or Raceppshi out of the story as they are of current concern to novel readers. 

A big maybe on a super early tease of something he wants to do in the future?

It might be nice to at least reintroduce us to a teen/ young adult Acha though. The last the novels said was that she was going to begin going  to classes, so she's probably moved on to the GXP academy.

...I guess they could maybe do a follow up on whatever dangerous pirates were on that Borg ship? Don't know.

Ultimately I'm with you, I'm guessing the the rest will mostly focus on the "family."

Episode 3 did confirm that Ryoko is Tenchi's favorite wife.  Of Tenchi's wives, Noike will be considered to be the No. One Wife.  Since Ryoko is Tenchi's favorite,, she deserves the right to have Tenchi's first child. Ryoko's and Tenchi's first child is going to be a girl.  The best name for Tenchi's and Ryoko's first  daughter is Kiyone.  Kiyone will be after her Tenchi's mother Kiyone. Since Tenchi's and Ayeka's child is going to be a girl, the best name for her is Achika, Washu will likely confirmed the name to be the mother of Tenchi is Achika is the third Universe. At first,  Ayeka and Tenchi will be confused until Washu informs them that she is referring to the mother of Earth-2's and Universe's Tenchi. Earth-2 is the Earth in the movie Daughter of Darkness.

I have mix views about OVA 5, It should  have been a sequel of Ryo-Ohki.  As a sequel, OVA 5 will be a fine bridge between Ryo-Ohki, GXP, and War on Geminar. For the Tenchi Multiverse, there is no need to merged them.  We did get a hint that Daughter of Darkness's Earth and Ryo-Ohki's Earth are very similar.   After OVA 5, I do want a sequel which focus on Tenchi's oldest son.  I came to call the sequel TENCHI MUYO! THE NEXT GENERATION.  I do want the female protagonist of the series to be the main character. When it comes to a female protagonist being the MC, the anime harem series To Love-Ru Darkness gets the honor.

We also haven't seen Azusa, Misaki, and Funaho in OVA 5 yet, so they're also potentially lined up to appear later on. I mean, it's quite telling when even Seto has already appeared.

To be fair, if OVAs 2 and 4 are any indication, we might not see Ayeka's parents until the last episode. If at all.

Not likely. IIRC, Based Fap mentioned that was setup for the events of the Paradise War novels, which happened before the most recent episode.

Yup. :) As I mentioned above, about the only characters they could really throw into OVA 5 that haven't been yet are Yosho, Airi, and / or Ayeka's parents, and even they'd be able to move the plot with the "family" forward.

The moments when Ryoko and Tenchi were alone on the beach confirms the truth that Ryoko is Tenchi's favorite. Tenchi and the girls are getting married sometime before the end of OVA .  The births of Tenchi's first two daughters will likely be in episode 6.

Yeah, the main cast being regulated to secondary characters has by far been the worst part of OVAs 3-5 so far.

One thing I really like, though, is how Ayeka and Ryoko get along. Yes, their rivalry is arguably THE classic romcom anime rivalry, but it's nice to see them not going through the same routines over and over just for nostalgia's sake.

You really get the sense that they have become 'sisters' now. From what we've seen thus far, so has Seina's girls.

I watched the most recent episode a couple of days ago. Definitely seems like I was right on the money in regards to the plot likely focusing on the main "family" going forward, especially with an ending like that.
:gabe: I'm still not convinced by the harem approach, it seems forced and any cemented polygamy is constantly rebuffed, if not merely overshadowed by Tenchi's own standoffish anxieties.
That probably won't last for much longer given the way that the most recent episode ended. Tenchi asked the girls to make a selfish request. I won't be surprised if that request ends up being "I love all of you, will you all marry me?" or something like that (Especially given that we know he marries all of them in the end anyway).

TLDR I don't think Tenchi's in standoff anxiety mode anymore, so to speak. Not as of this episode, anyway.

^ This, this, THIS. That's a +1 to your Useless Points, good sir. :)

On a more fun note, I need to say this now. If someone ever makes a Tenchi fighting game (It'll probably never happen sadly given that we haven't gotten a proper Tenchi video game since the PlayStation and Saturn) and Fuku isn't a grappler, I'm gonna be disappointed. Fuku chucking Jovia and Miron around like ragdolls every time they bugged Kenshi was a fun little gag, even if just for this one episode.

That point in OVA 4 before the wedding where Ryoko brings Aeka the Jurian silk they were sent seemed to be the first time you really saw them getting along and simply having a conversation, even empathizing with each other a little. That was a deceptively important moment, they're getting along AND you could say it's when the royal family shows that they accept everyone. It goes slightly deeper in that otherwise mostly unenlightening OVA 4 novelization.

Ayeka and Ryoko relationship is one of my favorite parts of the series. It went from Ayeka being willing to let Ryoko die in OVA 1 to them calmly sharing a drink in OVA 3. One of my favorite parts of the show was how they felt like a family unit, and I wish the series had focused more on that. I'm not going to hold my breath that we'll ever get anything like that though, and I found a different series to fill the comfy family harem hole in my heart.

I think you may have inadvertently given us an idea of what other show Kajashima could tie in! In a weird backstory way. Photon!
We know that Tennyo is looking into Kiyone's confounding but brilliant research on parallel dimensions and other worlds- maybe her research led to her unraveling of the past dimension breaks?
I don't know if he has ever directly addressed what is "known" by most- that the World of Photon is the past version of Geminar.


---
on the other point... is "Tenchi IF" supposed to be a "what if" fantasy? He could do an adaptation of sorts of those- which would definitely be the SoL series that "could be."
If those are brought into canon, it narrows down the mystery of who the mother of the son that marries Masaki Masaki is. It would be either Sasami or Washu.

I don't think the IF are ment to be what ifs as there is a group shot of Tenchi and co watching Kenshi's final fight and in that group are what looks to be the oldest 2 daughters and maybe the cabit triplets.

Given that kid looks like a male washu I don't think there was much doubt of his mother.

Unless you consider her previous incarnation as part of her age, Ryo-Ohki is waaaaay younger despite a body that seems to have matured completely in about five years. The "birth" was unusual, but I have the feeling that the conception was a furry's dream com true.

Finished up episode 3 and so far this my favorite OVA right after 1 and 2....getting proper pacing, things are being properly explained and actual character progression.

Tenchi wants the harem?!  :staredog:

Ryoko getting a deep understanding on how's she grown?!  :staredog:

Fuku is currently the most amazing cabbit?!  :staredog:

I need about 7 more seasons with this quality

Same. The good news here is that we're only halfway through with this OVA. We've got 3 more episodes incoming! :)

Washu's and Tenchi's son has been confirmed. His name is unknown for the moment.  I do suspect that Tenchi will have other sons. The first child of Sasami Tenchi may be  one of Tenchi's sons.

I have  included an attachment with a picture of Washu's Tenchi's son with Masaki.

I know Sasami and Washu would have kids with Tenchi because they are linked so tightly to him. Would Tokimi take Kenshi? Kenshi is the reincarnation of Z and she was convinced by her sisters to have a more caring relationship with her champion.

Interesting to think about, no?

I didn't see it in all the discussion, but who's the new blonde chick? I'm guessing she's a Paradise War character.

Miron Pham. Yes, PW character. There's a doujin that really goes deep into her. She was supposed to be a minor character but Kajishima ended up really liking her and disliking one of the main girls, so she got a lot more attention. Super Genius, graduated MIT or something super young and well into her early 20's looked like a kid. Once she developed, she became a super pervert. Her grandfather is, in essence, Illuminati.

Teacher and Doctor, I believe. The girls have spotty education, they may be brilliant in one area and hopeless in another.
I think the Earth group that knows about the aliens among them  (Like in oVa 3- how Rea explained she had to report to the emperor about the bridge destruction, etc) forced her on the group to be their representative

Any idea why they are translating Banjo Island as Tabletop Island?
Title: Re: OVA 5 Info Thread
Post by: Nonsuch Ned on September 18, 2020, 10:22:21 AM
Not fluent, or even too familiar with Kanji. I'm assuming it's actually probably pretty accurate.  The word that comes out as "Banjo" Island to us, and means (https://cdn.iconscout.com/icon/premium/png-64-thumb/banjo-21-570030.png) Island to us, probably actually does translate literally as "tabletop" island, or close to.

I am a researcher though...

I went to the Japanese wiki article for Paradise War (There is not one for it in the English wiki- yet) and, using Google translate, found that "南の島・盤上島" means "South Island, Banjojima" but if you break it down to "盤上島" you get "Board Island" and if you press the audio button it sounds like "Banjojima"
 "盤上" ("Banjo") means "On board"
"盤" ("ban") means "board/tray/shallow bowl"

Thanks for the info.

It is not normal to translate island names though. I guess they wanted to avoid the musical instrument reference, but I get annoyed by translating names.

Could be COVID finally catching up. I hate to be a downer but I think that might be the more likely scenario.

Wedding has been teased hard, weddings in 4 implys kids in 5.

Who knows

I'm not gonna assume it's COVID affecting production... at least not yet. Keep in mind that both today (September 21) and tomorrow are federal holidays in Japan (Respect for the Aged Day and the Autumn Equinox actually fell on back to back days this year, which doesn't happen very often), so they can't reveal anything even if they wanted to until Wednesday (In Japan, of course) earliest. That's probably why we haven't gotten any previews yet. While unrelated, it's probably the reason why Premium Bandai is waiting until the beginning of October to put the Digimon Pendulum Z Wave 2 up for preorder. I mention that only to further point out that the back-to-back holidays are holding a lot of info bombs up, not just for Tenchi.

That... and if it was COVID, AIC would have announced a delay already. Every other company has announced COVID delays as soon as their franchises were affected, so it would certainly be the same case here.
Wedding has been teased hard, weddings in 4 implys kids in 5.
This is more likely to be the case than a delay given the factors I mentioned, and also because the official website didn't add any new characters after episode 3 like they did after the first 2. Tenchi's wedding is something they'd definitely take time and gradually build up to hyping, especially given how many people have been hoping to see it.

TLDR Don't panic about no preview yet. If it was COVID related, AIC would have announced a delay by now, which they didn't. More than likely, it has to do with the back-to-back holidays.

Don't forget Tenchi's third cousin twice removed that he nor the girls even remotely knew about showing up somewhere in there, LOL. :emot-smugdog:

(Not saying that this will happen obviously; I'm playing along with the joke.)
