Tenamonya Voyagers Vol. #1


What They Say

The Review!
"Tenamonya VOYAGERS" is Studio Pierrot/BANDAI VISUAL's OAV series featuring nonsense comedies ... homage's to Japanese '70s comedies in particular. OP and ED songs are also taken from '70s TV shows.
Although I can't find out which gag is based on which '70s gag, this OAV is still fun to watch. It is perhaps because it's very well drawn and animated, with comical conversations. I rented this OAV, enjoyed it a lot, and then went out to buy DVD.

While the space police led by Tatsue, who was relegated from the Hiroshima police(*1) for her violent nature, is investigating the internal strife of the crime syndicate JAOU-KAI (lit: Evil King Party), 2 Earthian girls and 1 mysterious (?) girl are going to voyage to the Earth: Ayako and Wakana have no choice but returning to the Earth, since their school went bankrupt so that Ayako will have no salary (as a teacher); for the same reason, Wakana will have no scholarship (as a student); Paraira is running away from something ...

Since they don't have enough money to return the Earth directly, they decide to go to Praesepe (relay point to Earth) via Galaxy Express _train_, but the JAOU-KAI sends powered-suited assassins to kill Paraira ...

Who is Paraira ? Can they reach to the Earth without being arrested by Tatsue ? Which gag is based on '70s gag ?

The plot is very simple, characters are well-drawn but less attractive, concept is just funny ... but still, it's an enjoyable OAV.

(*1) Hiroshima was a city of violence, where crime syndicates (yakuza) had fierce strife's.
