The Review!
The entire 26 episodes of the first Tenchi Muyo TV series in an 8-DVD box set. This review is looking solely at the packaging.


Ah, Pioneer always releases their DVDs with the best packaging. The 8-DVD set is put in a beautiful cardboard box surrounded by the main characters of the Tenchi cast. Looking on the top, Tenchi gives the same smile as he is the perhaps the luckiest--and densest--bachelor in the universe, who is surrounded by women who live with and sometimes battle over him. On the back, a horizontally split image with Ryoko giving a devious and arrogant smirk shaded with a gray hue that is nearly the same color as her hair, and Ayeka shaded with a purple hue and showing a look of modesty and grace, along with a background that has a line of hearts to her left implying her affection for Tenchi. Looking to the left of the box from the back, another split image of the Galaxy Police's best detectives, Kiyone on the top with a shaded in a blue hue much like the color of her hair looking outward, and Mihoshi shaded in a warm yellow hue to highlight her as the bungling blond, as she lays on her side feigning an innocent smile. On the opposite side, we have the two youngest--using the term loosely for Washu--members of the Tenchi harem, Sasami and Washu. On the top half, Sasami laughs boisterously as Ryo-Ohki climbs up her long blue hair with bright colors to accentuate the playfulness of the scene. The bottom shows Washu tinkering away at yet another invention with shades of green the same color as her eyes within the background and on her face. Finally, on the bottom, we have the contents of the package listed in the order of the episodes that they are on and images of the covers.
