Otaku Evolution Episode 118 - Mid Year English Dub Review IV

Ah, the middle of the year (was over a month ago!). A great time to go over the English dubs of anime I've covered thus far in 2018, so I don't have to cover a year's worth at the end of the year. This is also an opportunity to talk about the myriad of different ADR studios, specific dubs, and voice actors encountered in these videos.


And hey, only a pre-title bit, no after-credits bit! I'm actually going to retire those things until late October. It's been taking me two or three weeks to do videos that should only take a single week, maybe a week and half, to finish, these days. I do love my leftover detritus from my old sprite comic, but I need to concentrate on the actual REVIEW part of each review video.


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.

Otaku Evolution Episode 90 - Tenchi Muyo! OVA 2

Anime's favorite harem returns in six more episodes of Tenchi Muyo!, an OVA increasingly about one character (Washu), and also increasingly not about Tenchi whatsoever. There truly is no need for Tenchi when you've got the Greatest Scientific Genius in the Universe, a cute little bundle of trouble house guest, a hive mind creature, a robot clone, a octopus-bearded jerk, and a whole lot of inbred royalty! Oh, and I guess the boy in question occasionally does something.

Otaku Evolution Episode 37 - Tenchi Muyo! OVA 1 (SERIOUSLY, THIS TIME)

Otaku Evolution 37 - Tenchi Muyo! OVA 1 by ellbell01


What do you get when you take a bland(ish) teen boy, an emotional wreck space pirate, a haughty princess, a precious little sweetheart (who may laugh at your impending doom), a ditzy officer, the Greatest Scientific Genius in the universe, a badass old man, a pervert dad, a cat-rabbit that transforms into a spaceship, and a bunch of magic computer trees?


Wait for me to catch my breath, here.


The Tenchi Muyo Manifesto



Recently, I've been rewatching Tenchi Muyo!, which was a favorite for a while. Nowadays I don't consider it a favorite, but I do have a certain fondness for it, even besides nostalgia. The original two OVAs were both humorous and endearing and there's an immense world of possibilities in them. It really felt like it was going somewhere with it all, and for years waited with anticipation for a follow-up.  Sure, there were two TV series, three movies, and spinoffs, but it was the OVA that really inspired interest from me.
