Tenchi Muyo! Movie Collection Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"While the Tenchi Muyo! franchise may have paved the way for many tropes used in anime today, it is also one of the most confusing series of all time thanks to the fact that the OVAs originally created back in 1992 and aired until 1995 spawned not one but two alternate universe storylines which are not related to the plot of the original OVAs, though used the same characters.

Now not only did these other series, Tenchi Universe and Tenchi in Tokyo make things a bit more confusing for fans, the original OVAs would continue eight years later in 2005 to wrap up the story. However during that eight year span of time not one, but three movies were created. Now FUNimation has taken these three movies, Tenchi in Love, The Daughter of Darkness and Tenchi in Love 2, and brought them to Blu-ray for the first time ever. Are these movies worth checking out now that they’ve finally arrived on Blu-ray?" (Anime, Tenchi Muyo!) 8/10

To be honest, I've seen the entire Tenchi Muyo thing except now for Part 3 of the OVAs and all of these movies, so I was looking forward to picking up this Blu-ray release. However if what the review on the site says is true, the movies don't benefit much from the HD upgrade... may just keep an eye out for the older DVD version for a lot cheaper.
