Tenchi Muyo OVA Blu Ray!


One of my all-time favorites has finally been re-released on Blu-Ray after about a decade or so of being out-of-print on DVD. How many times have I been so close to buying a used copy on ebay with an asking price of about $100? Once a year, w/o fail. So I was really, really happy when I saw the pre-order and insta-bought it - and was equally blown away when I saw that it had finally arrived.

For those not familiar, the original Tenchi Muyo OVA series covers the core universe (if there is such a thing in this multi-dimensional space drama/harem) that evenutally extends into its sequel OVA series, Ryo Ohki and its spin-off, Tenchi GXP. It's a coming of age story that follows the rise of one seemingly normal teen, Tenchi Misaki, to his place at the top of the multiverses.

How glorious the 5.1 Japanese audio sounds when paired with a cleaned up image. I don't know if its been up-scaled or what, but you can imagine how much I can appreciate any improvement when the version I've been watching for the past decade has been a VHS rip that I managed to create after borrowing a friend's equipment. I wish I could show you guys a comparison between my VHS version, the DVD version and the Blu-Ray version (this package comes with BOTH! - a 2 disc BR edition and a 3 disc DVD edition), but Blu-Rays are so DRMed that I haven't figured out how to take screenshots of them (and have been too lazy to figure out how).

If you guys are looking for something entertaining to watch, I highly recommend this series. I think it mostly stands the test of time and is a joy for me to watch each time.
