1: The Daughter of Darkness


The second of three Tenchi movies, The Daughter of Darkness is a solid production. It has all of the zany high-jinks, love quarrels and action that fans of the series expect. It also gives more insight into the lives (and relationships) of the popular characters, though in true Tenchi fashion, nothing is openly explained, confirmed or resolved.

The animation is top notch and the production values on the DVD that was reviewed were superb. The English voice acting also deserves recognition for its quality. All in all, an entertaining and well produced film.

Volume 1: "The Daughter of Darkness" Plot Summary:

Long ago, when Tenchi's grandfather was a small boy, he encountered a strange young girl called Yuzuha and they became play pals. Later on, on a festival night, she presents him with a special gift and invites him to her house to play. Suddenly guards from the Jurai Royal Family storm in and strike the girl down. It seems that she was a demon who was a danger to the young prince.

Fast forward to the present. It is a hot summer day and as Tenchi returns from the family cemetery, he meets a teenage girl who starts calling him "daddy". Where did she come from? Who is her mother? Unfortunately, the girl cannot remember.

Concerned for the girl, the Tenchi clan takes her in - though considerable tension develops between the new girl, Mayuka and Ryoko. Strange events begin to happen, and it seems that there may a sinister plot behind Mayuka. Could this be the work of Yuzuha?
