"It is easy to see why Tenchi Muyo! Universe is thought to be one of the all-time great anime series that should not be missed by anime fans and while this release may be rather barren as far as bonus features go and the transfer to DVD isn’t quite as smooth as many would have liked, fans of harem comedies would be doing themselves a great disservice if they chose to pass up this latest release of Tenchi Muyo! Universe. Returning fans will still find it an improved version of what they fell in love with over a decade ago while new viewers find themselves laughing constantly but also falling in love with the amazing characters found within Tenchi Muyo! Universe."
