What do you get when you mix Gundam and Tenchi? 😛

The story is set in an alternate world called Geminar, where countries have fought endless wars with replicas of humanoid Seikishi weapons that they found in ancient ruins. 15-year-old Kenji Masaki, the half-brother of Tenchi Muyo! protagonist Tenchi Masaki, is summoned from another world to Geminar.

Tenchi Muyo! and Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure creator Masaki Kajishima remains as the creator and overall supervisor of this new anime that AIC and BeSTACK will produce and VAP will present. Koji Yoshikawa (D.N.Angel, Baki the Grappler) will be directing off scripts supervised by Hideki Shirane (Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Girl’s High, Zoids: Fuzors). Katsumi Enami (Baccano!) created the original character designs which character designer and chief animation director Hajime Watanabe (Hime-chan’s Ribbon, Kodocha, School Rumble) will adapt for anime.

Naohiro Washio (Fafner, Heroic Age, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) will design the mecha that will play much larger role than in any previous Tenchi Muyo! project. Also fleshing out the world are the prop designers Masaki Sato, Shouko Matsumoto (Le Chevalier D’Eon key animator), and Hiroshi Ogawa (Kamichu!, Great Dangaioh, Tokyo Majin). Nobuhito Sue (Appleseed, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie – Conqueror of Shamballa, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) is developing the background art that fellow Kusanagi staffer Kyo Inoue (Blood+, Fullmetal Alchemist, Noein – to your other self) is directing. Aiko Matsuyama (Ah! My Goddess, Lovedol ~Lovely Idol~, S.A) is overseeing the project’s color palettes.

  1. As a high school student, Tenchi Muyo was the first anime that I didn’t like. Up until then, I was simply in love with anything that came out of Japan…

    Needless to say, I am not incredibly excited.

  2. Ffviiknight,

    Yes, the background art is nice and I don’t like character design style also. I don’t expect much story from Tenchi spinoff though.

    Ōkami-Sensei,

    I watched all the Tenchi series on Cartoon Network and enjoyed it. However, the retellings of the story were less interesting than the first anime. The characters rather than the plot is more attractive in Tenchi Muyo. Also it was one of very few shows that had better voice acting than the original.
