Watch Tenchi Muyo!
- 1 Season
A classic anime series considered one of the most successful of harem comedies, "Tenchi Muyo!" centers around a young boy named Tenchi. As the heir of an ancient shrine, he is tasked with protecting it from any invaders, but he gets more than he bargained for when those invaders wind up being beautiful aliens from outer space! As a harem comedy, "Tenchi Muyo!" is a show involving various women vying for one male's attentions and affections. Except that in Tenchi's case, the women are all not of this world and have special powers that make their competition for him often result in damage to the property. Meanwhile, poor Tenchi is caught in the middle as he feels pressure to choose between several women, all of which could cause him serious harm if he chooses unwisely. The show has a variety of entertainment elements a viewer may enjoy. It contains a fair bit of comedy, romance, drama, and even some action scenes. The comedy often results from the repetitive fighting among the superhuman women of the story that all insist on living together with Tenchi. By the last arc of the story, there are six of them vying for his affection. But throughout all the hardships the girls cause him, Tenchi somehow manages to balance a good relationship with each one, doing whatever it takes. Part of the appeal of the show is the viewer's wonder at who he would ultimately choose. Will Tenchi be able to choose between the six beautiful aliens or will he be unable to decide? Will he ever be able to convince the women to vacate his sacred property and the planet Earth? Will he actually fall in love with one of them? The answers to such questions will be answered by the end of the anime, and the journey through the episodes will be one that is both as dramatic and hilarious as a good harem comedy should be.
