E43 – Tenchi Universe Part 2



Tenchi and the gang head into space in order to stop a coup on Jurai that has deposed Ayeka and Sasami.

Unfortunately, putting Tenchi in space does very little to solve the show’s problems. Michael complains about the one-dimensional nature of the show’s characters, Peter sandbags the dialogue translation, and both hosts generally get kind of salty.

Also included: spaceships in love, character karaoke, and a swimsuit episode.

E42 – Tenchi Universe Part 1



Tenchi Universe starts out of the gate with repeated spaceship crashes, and from there… well…

We’re back to the adventures of a nondescript teenage boy pursued by six alien women. And it never stops being weird. Meanwhile, Peter compares Tenchi Unvierse to reality television, Michael vents his frustration with a glimpse of characterization, and both hosts wish one of the aliens pursuing Tenchi was a weird jellyfish monster.

Also included: Giant Scooby-Doo and his ability to clean up cotton candy, Animorphs, and the dark fate of Tenchi characters

E18 – Tenchi Muyo!



What do you get when you put a demon, a princess, her younger sister, a space-cop, and a mad scientist under one roof?  Apparently, they all fall in love with a relatively lame teenager.

On this episode, both hosts discuss some awkward pre-teen memories, Michael makes a comparison to Bayonetta that falls flat, and Peter gushes about the mechanical design in the show.

Oh, there’s also a bit of discussion about a cat/rabbit hybrid that can turn into a spaceship, and the awkwardness of watching anime in your living room.
