Otaku Evolution Episode 113 - Tenchi Muyo! OVA 3

Ugh, it took me forever to make this video. For one, I had a cold, a bad back, and then I had to have my gallbladder removed, I shit you not. During and after that litany of health crises, plus recovery, plus my usual procrastination, I finally finished this beast of a video that really wore me out, because DAMN is this OVA just painful, emotionally and apparently physically. So I will probably never, ever watch this ever again after all this, and I say, good riddance. Maybe I'll finally get over my anger and just move on.

But, as you know, I'm not really a "moving on" sort. The third Tenchi Muyo! OVA is my "Slowly I Turned" moment. I guess sort of like that third Rebuild of Evangelion movie. This is an anime that is, quite literally, bad for my health.
