Tenchi Muyou! GXP

Seina Yamada is unlucky... so unlucky that when he stumbles upon a recruiter looking for his senpai Tenchi he gets taken instead. Forced into the Galaxy Police, his luck begins to change. A natural to randomly jumping near pirates, he is assigned his own decoy to draw out pirates. His luck brings him into the lives of four women who have a habit of cancelling out his bad luck, turning it into good. Armed with this luck, they pilot the most powerful ships in the Tenchi Universe to defeat the Da Ruma pirates. Now the only uncertainty is whether the sexy Amane Kaunaq, a former model turned into a GP detective, sturdy Kiriko Masaki, who has known Seina for years, the mysterious Ryoko Balta, a former pirate named after the legendary one, or the child-like Neju Na Melmas, a powerful 2000 year-old priestess, will win Seina.

As a long time fan of the tenchi franchise, I came into this with ridiculously low expectations, which were erased in due time. The worry came from recently having finished tokyo and the 3rd ova, which bith left me kind of disappointed. So I started this on a whim and was relieved with what I got. STORY This is easily not a strong point for this show, or harems in general. If you have seen a tenchi series before you know exactly how this goes. Our main character (who is not tenchi this time) is Yamada Seina, a boy who is miserably unlucky. He joins the Galaxy Police as a decoy unit, though not truly his choice, and in this meets a number of people, mostly women who all seem to have a thing for him. Sound familiar? damn right it does. Still it does carry the tenchi atmosphere that i really enjoyed, which is what helped make the franchise stand out for me. Im glad they managed to keep this feel even with a bunch of new characters thrown in alongside leftovers from the 3rd OVA. But yeah, this plot really has no developement. ANIMATION The tenchi atmosphere is present as I stated and the animation is decent, on top of the nice looking locations in space that are visited in the series. It is not award winning but it looks decent. Also keep in mind theres lots of typical harem comedy so look forward to boobs, falling, and carefully placed objects blocking indecent locations SOUND The soundtrack of the series to me has a lot more of a comical sense than previous tenchi works. It works in some scenarios and it manages to have just an average soundtrack outside of that. It works fine since this tenchi series is more comedy than anything. CHARACTER At this point I am certain you are probably thinking "The heck this is just another garbage harem with tenchi slapped on it" and while it seems that way you shouldnt get the impression. Especially in the character department because like other tenchi works this one has a borad variety of characters each with different types of personalities and ways of conveying their desire for Seina. The characters share alot with previous tenchi heroines, but are still memorable on their own. ENJOYMENT I enjoyed this show a bit. It felt like a tenchi series which frankly was a fresh breathe of air for me as a fan of tenchi. It has its simple and funny moments and that, along with its interesting atmosphere for a harem, is what kept me watching. Its not nearly as memorable as other Tenchis, particularly the excellent first two ovas, but it felt fun. OVERALL This show its self is a little more of the same thing, but it is nice if you are a fan of tenchi. Aside from that it is just a fairly average harem comedy with little to no plot going for it. You watch this pretty much for comedy, the universe of the tenchi atmosphere, and thats about it.

Tenchi muyo GXP is a very underrated story in the Tenchi franchise. I came into this series with eureka 7 Ao levels of expectation, but what I got instead was a hidden gem or a diamond in the rough with this series and I highly recommend this to anyone who loves Tenchi. Now if only funimation can make this into a blue-ray as well as OVA 3 then I'd be happy.
