there is yet ANOTHER show under the "tenchi muyo" moniker, released for the franchise's 20th anniversary
for those of you not keeping score, that adds up to 6 retellings of the same story, each one going in its own direction, each with it's own original characters taking up space with the ones necessary for the show, and each with it's own backstories FOR those necessary characters
actually, if you add in the three movies, that makes it 9. NINE!!!!!! NINE DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE SAME DAMN STORY!!!!
I've seen less redundancy from the superman films!
