There are wedding bells in the air for Nobuyuki and Rea, meaning the Masaki household is about to get a whole lot livelier! The guest list is teeming with family members from Jurai and friends from all over the known galaxy, all wanting to see Nobuyuki and his bride. While Ryoko and Ayeka bond over having little to do with the family, Minaho sets her sights on her nephew Tenchi. Meanwhile, Airi is stuck at the GXP Academy, working overtime to finish her paperwork in time for the ceremony. However, as the day draws near, a more pressing matter begins to arise - who exactly is Rea, and where did the blushing bride come from?
What I Liked: The retro style of the first and second opening theme, and the majority of the soundtrack. The sub-plot involving Airi trying to get to the wedding. What I Didn't: Animation is very plain, with a henious lack of dynamic shots. Spoken exposition out the wazoo. Those who are only familiar with the Ryo-Ohki canon might be confused by the sudden onslaught of new but established faces from GXP. The fact that Tenchi's aunty tries to join the harem. The soundtrack, as good as it sounds, is very limited with the various opening and ending themes a mixed bag. The pacing is absolutely terrible - the first three episodes take place over two days, whereas the last episode spans years. Final Verdict: Fans of Tenchi Muyo! GXP or War on Geminar may get a kick out of seeing familiar faces, but for everyone else this is a disappointingly bland way to link the various off-shoots of the Tenchi Muyo! universe. It strips away the gaudy comedy and (much of the) fanservice the franchise is known for and replaces it with talking heads and abysmal pacing.
