Tenchi Muyo is essentially a harem anime that is a part of the universe. It follows a high schooler, Tenchi, who accidentally releases a space pirate called Ryouko.

This creates a butterfly effect, and, quickly, Tenchi discovers himself in the company of beautiful intergalactic beauties, each of whom develops an affection for him.

The anime is a blend of various TV shows, OVAs, movies, and specials. All of them belong to Tenchi Muyou! Ryo-Ohki, Tenchi TV Universe, and Spin-Offs.

There are seven TV shows, three films, twelve OVAs, and four specials in Tenchi Muyo.

Beyond the space harem, there’s also a lot of sci-fi humor and action that is present in the show.

Tenchi Muyo is very funny and serious at the same time, so aliens and women who try to get close to Tenchi are a great contrast.

Find out the harem genre as it was back then when it was present in every other show featuring Tenchi Muyo!
