Library Journal Review

Despite the "all-new" tag, this is actually just a relaunching of Okuda's sf comedy manga series No Need for Tenchi, with Viz's newly adopted, slightly smaller format and lower price being the only changes. Like the preceding series, it presents enjoyable, original stories based on the Japanese animated "Tenchi" series, shown on Cartoon Network and very popular among American anime fans. But this volume is a good jumping-on point for new readers, with stories introducing and spotlighting all the major characters, including Japanese teenager Tenchi Masaki, powerful heir to the throne of planet Jurai, and the alien women who live with him on Earth: Princess Ayeka of Jurai and space pirate Ryoko, rivals for Tenchi's affections; mad scientist Washu; ditzy Galaxy Police Officer Mihoshi; and Ayeka's cute little sister Sasami, the most leve lheaded of the bunch. Okuda's clean, cartoony, black-and-white art captures the characters very well. Rated "T" for teens by Viz, this will be enjoyed by both teen and adult fans of manga comedies such as Ranma 1/2.
