I just can't get used to this new art style especially Sasami's redesign. OVA3 looked better than this to me. It's sad to me when I feel like the original OVAs from 20 years ago look more impressive than something that's supposed to be new and modern.

Having a title span across so much time successfully,while maybe not inventing the harem, can safely say they fine tune the hell out of it, is very impressive. Broadcasting to cable televisions a story that now a day's would seem so edge lord paper thin plot armor heavy becoming so well recognized that it's weight isn't even mentioned like the gravity that surrounds you, mwah. Some asked WHY or HOW a scrawny kid could be so lucky. Tenchi would reply, Well if you were the God of your own universe, why not?

@Wyakku I dunno, while I haven't watched the more recent Tenchi stuff, I'd say it's still far more believable than most of the Isekai WN adaptations we get these days, like the unforgettably-dumb Smartphone.

Really? I feel like animation in general peaked in the 80s and 90s. None of the modern stuff even comes close, IMHO.

Remember when Tenchi used to be good?

Nothing beats the 90s stuff but OVA3 at least looked like a finished product that could stand on it’s own and the characters at least looked like their old selves.

Personally I thought that the characters looked off in OVA 3 especially Ryoko who's ears were way too big in OVA 3.

Hell Tenchi in Tokyo looks better then OVA 3.

Less TV anime in general was being made in the 80s and 90s and OVA series were usually short, meaning that whatever skilled talent from back then were more likely to hop from project to project as freelancers or otherwise commit to a single given production.

In the case of the Tenchi Muyo OVAs in the 90s, animators like Takeshi Honda would provide cuts like this and this and then would around the same time have provided a bit of animation for Sailor Moon and the You're Under Arrest OVAs. But someone like him has gotten much older, probably can't animate at the same pace or is otherwise being recruited on larger scale projects like the EVA Rebuild films. I can only imagine that it's a similar issue for whatever other animators that worked on the initial Tenchi Muyo OVAs. The same can also be said for some of the other staff positions and although there are more younger skilled animators, there's just a growing, stupid amount of anime every year.
