The 2009 anime '''''Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari''''' ('''''Tenchi Muyo: War on Geminar''''' in the States) is a Canon {{spinoff}} of the ''TenchiMuyo'' {{OVA}} series that takes place 15 years after TenchiMuyoGXP. The main character, Kenshi, is Tenchi's half brother and depicts him being forcefully taken from his home and his family by unknown forces, and sent to a new alternate universe on a planet called Geminar. There are a few thinly veiled references and nods to the ''Tenchi Muyo'' series while Omake material released in Manga, Novel and Doujinshi formats expands the series and further fleshes out the overall story (something Masaki Kajishima has a reputation for).

At the beginning of the show, Kenshi has been told he needs to help with an assassination plot in return for going home. The target of assassination is the newly crowned queen of one of the lands in this world. When faced with killing a girl roughly the same age as him he can't do it. Eventually, he ends up being a servant of the queen while she is attending a super elite school for nobility and pilots for somewhat organic looking super robots. Being the little brother of the guy who pretty much made the HaremGenre what it is today, it doesn't take long before the good ole [[ChickMagnet Masaki charm]] goes to work and gets chased by almost every girl in the school.....literally.

The show was released in OVA format (one episode a month), but also aired on television through Japanese pay-per-view service. The first episode was later "enhanced" with extra scenes for the Blu-Ray release.

Now with a [[Characters/IsekaiNoSeikishiMonogatari character sheet]] that NeedsWikiMagicLove.

------

!!The show provides examples of the following tropes:

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] due to the fact that many world leaders' children go to this school. [[spoiler: One episode they elect Kenshi to the school government just so that everyone's attention will be on him and they can actually get work done.]]
* AccidentalPervert: Seems Kenshi's ''Massage Mode'' brings this up to some girls.
* AllAmazonsWantHercules: As the series progresses Kenshi's harem keeps getting bigger until [[spoiler: it pretty much includes everyone at the school. Keep in mind that the attendants at the school include the kids of all the top leaders of the world's governments.]]
* AlmightyJanitor: Before Kenshi reveals that he's a Seikishi, he manages to earn this kind of reputation as Lashara's servant.
* AMechByAnyOtherName: The Seikijin ("Holy Machine Men").
* [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Mother]]: Flora. '''BIG TIME'''.
* AmazonBrigade: Male Seikijin pilots are extremely rare, so most fighting is actually done by the far more numerous girls.
* AnimeHair: Present and accounted for.
* AnimalMotifs: Not a real animal, but the girls at the school frequently compare Kenshi to the native Koro, a [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter two-tailed white squirrel like creature]]. It's one of the reasons that so many of the girls develop a crush on him.
** Given that Kenshi acts like a male version of Ryo-Ohki much of the time.
* BackgroundMagicField: The "Draft of Ena", which supplies power to the Seikijin mecha and most of the {{Magitek}} in the series. It only extends to a certain height, so some areas, like the highlands, are off-limits without special equipment.
* {{Badass}}: [[OneManArmy Kenshi]], it runs in the family.
* BattleHarem: Most of Kenshi's harem are pilots.
* BerserkButton: Kenshi loves his crystals. Chiaia can make him do almost anything if she threatens his collection. [[spoiler:On the other hand, Kenshi only forms the Light Hawk Sword in the final battle when she promises to let him dig all he wants if he beats Gaia.]]
* BetaCouple: Ceres and his girlfriend Hazuki, once they join the crew of the ''Swan''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''DO NOT PISS OFF'' Kenshi.
** Also, the students at the Holy Academy spend so much time acting like... schoolgirls, it's easy to forget that, say, [[ShrinkingViolet Lapis]] is a fully-trained ActionGirl who knows how to use a HumongousMecha.
* BigBad: Babalun [[spoiler: who is being controlled by the core crystal of the Seikishin Gaia that was implanted in him at a young age. Gaia itself is TheManBehindTheMan scheming to revive itself.]]
* BiTheWay: Mexiah might be one if episode 8 has anything to say about it.
* {{BFS}}: Some of the Seikijin wield these. In episode 12 [[spoiler: Kenshi compresses a ''mountain'' to create a huge stone {{BFS}}. Which turns into an ''even bigger'' LaserSword in the final episode. Which then turns into a smaller but far more powerful ''Light Hawk Sword'']].
* BloodlessCarnage: You can rip a Sekishi in pieces, but you never see anything else really bleed.
* BodyguardCrush: Emera to Dagmyer.
* BookEnds: The OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness in the first and last scenes.
* BoisterousBruiser: Aura's father.
* CastAsAMask: Used as a RedHerring when Mexiah had the same voice actress as the mysterious masked woman Neizai who tended to show up when Mexiah disappeared. [[spoiler:Mexiah was actually the alter ego of Doll (different actress), and Neizai was actually Rea Second (different actress). The show actually throws a red herring in the WhamEpisode, when Ulyte talks to Neizai while the camera shows a closeup of Mexiah with MindControlEyes... with her mouth conveniently obscured.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: The first half of the series is devoted to this (and {{Fanservice}}). Initially Kenshi just wants to go home. While he never really loses that goal, he also grows closer to his fellow students at the academy including the members of his UnwantedHarem. All so that by the time the series gets back to the mecha action, Kenshi actually has a reason to fight other than "I want to go home".
* CharClone: Dagmyer. Masked blond, inspiring leader and idealist, ManipulativeBastard... he hits most of the criteria except that he uses a blue Seikishin. And that he's hopelessly outmatched by [[GodModeSue Kenshi.]]
** Ulyte also qualifies; [[HiddenAgendaVillain playing both sides against the middle for the sake of his own mysterious agenda]]. [[spoiler:And he/she even has the mask aspect covered as Neizai.]]
* ChasteHero: Kenshi shows some signs of it, but we can't blame him; he just wants to go home.
* ChekhovsGag: Wahanly creates a generator for the training PoweredArmor to use it to chase Kenshi down in the fifth episode. [[spoiler:The modified armor gets used for guerilla warfare in the last episode.]]
* ChickMagnet: Kenshi of course.
** Due to cooking skills, strength/speed, and all around niceness. The fact that male Seikijin pilots are already in high demand around here doesn't hurt, either.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Lashara when she actually sees affection that might get Kenshi from under her thumb (especially involving her [[TheRival Rival]]). Chiaia whenever Kenshi appears too happy. Both whenever there's something to blame or exploit.
* ColorCodedCharacters: The various Seikijin have colors and outward appearances dependent on who is piloting them.
* ConvenientlyUnverifiableCoverStory: Lashara and Chiaia decide to hide Kenshi's connection to the white Seikijin that attacked the ''Swan'' in the first episode by having him serve as one of Lashara's servants. Instead of revealing he's from another dimension (which would basically ruin the deception by itself), Kenshi hides his unfamiliarity with the customs of the world of Geminar by claiming to be from "Kouchi" -- the highlands (''Kouchi'' actualy means this) above the Draft of Ena which powers the Seikijin and the other {{Magitek}}, and whose residents are conveniently isolated socially as well as physically.
* CookingDuel: A literal example breaks out in the fifth episode when Maria tries to set a HoneyTrap for Kenshi; Aura suggests that everyone gathers ingredients in the forest and cook a pot-dish with them. The best dish wins ownership of Kenshi.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Kenshi and Flora.
* DarkActionGirl: Lan. (Doll seems to be one at first, but after the reveal in episode 8 [[spoiler:she's more of a BrainwashedAndCrazy FemmeFatale]].)
** FauxActionGirl as well, as she hardly ever fights, and in these cases is usually completely dominated not only by Kenshi or Neizai, but by Emera as well.
* DarwinistDesire: It is revealed that due to male Mecha Masters being so rare, they are made to marry female Mecha Masters to produce superior Mecha Masters. Kenchi even compares male Mecha Masters treatment as if they were breeding horses and the sperm of a male Mecha Master is very valuable. Women Mecha Masters on the other hand are free to marry whoever they want since there is so many of them.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Several members of his harem but in particular: Chiaia, whenever he appears happy, quota demands it, or just when she's bored or something good happens to him. Lashara and Mexiah whenever there's an opportunity to exploit him for their own gain or to make him unhappy, and Lithia who refuses to acknowledge him, and frequently puts him down (much like the others in this list).
* DubNameChange: In Funimation's subtitled streams, they changed "Seikishi (Holy Machine Wielders)" to "Sacred Mechamaster", "Seikijin (Holy Machine Men)" to "Sacred Mechanoid", "Seieishi (Holy Defenders)" to "Sacred Mechaguardian", "Seikishin (Holy Machine God)" to "Sacred Mechalord", and "Kikkoujin (Machine Workers)" to "Mechaworker".
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Mexiah is quite popular around the girls.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Ulyte seems a bit too ''friendly'' with Kenshi.
* EveryoneChasingYou: This keeps happening to Kenshi as he gets more popular and in more important positions. By the fifth episode, [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Four Girls]] organize the student body to do it more efficiently, using tactics, radios, and PoweredArmor.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Lashara, Maria, and Aura, the latter who also counts as a BadassPrincess.
* {{Expy}}: To keep it short, Kenshi is Tenchi's half-brother as such he has almost all the traits of his sibling in ''TenchiMuyo'', only in a different world.
* {{Fanservice}}: Of course.
* FauxActionGirl: As mentioned above, Lan comes across as a Faux DarkActionGirl. More generally, the trope gets ''inverted'' here: most Seikishi (pilots) are female, and the few male pilots are coddled, condescended to, given substandard training, and treated like "stud horses". Dagmyer's rebellion is partially a JackieRobinsonStory, trying to prove that male Seikishi can hold their own on the battlefield -- but after a promising start, they get shoved to the sidelines and outshone by the women on Babalun's side (Kenshi and Aura's father are full-fledged Action Guys, though).
* FetishFuelFuture: Some of the previous otherworlders brought to Geminar made their marks on the culture -- like the pillow fight in episode six. Kenshi's disturbed about how much of it he recognizes from his father's "[[PornStash library]]".
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Kenshi -- from our world, into Lashara's.
* {{Freakout}}: Several, one that comes to mind when the girls find out Kenshi's ''secret'' ingredient for flavor in his soup.
* [[FreeLoveFuture Free Love Alternate Dimension]]
* HappyEndingMassage: Turns out Kenshi's massages give the girls this feeling as an aftereffect.
* HimeCut: Maria
* HoneyTrap: Maria persuades Yukine into trying to set one for Kenshi, to both [[ShipperOnDeck help her bodyguard win Kenshi's heart]] and [[UnknownRival put one over on Lashara]].
* HotBlooded: King Shurifon, who's chewing the scenery in almost all his scenes. Quite an unusual behavior for an ''elf''.
* HotForStudent: Mexiah [[spoiler: and maybe "Ulyte"]] for Kenshi.
* HourOfPower: Pilots can only operate Seikijin for limited amounts of time.
* HumongousMecha: The Seikijin. Prominent in episode one, then all but ignored until episode 8.
* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: Kenshi is a rather bizarre case. In episode 3, Mexiah somehow brainwashes him to make him turn into a "berserker massage machine" at her command. Then she gets Wahan, Aura, Lithia, Yukine, and various other girls to help him practice without getting into the specifics. Afterwards, all of them are left in states of heightened arousal and sensitivity; in Yukine's case, ''just being lightly tapped on the back'' nearly triggered an orgasm.
** In episode 6, Lashara and Maria trigger his "massage machine" state again to get payback from Queen Flora for their earlier humiliations in that episode -- knowing only that Kenshi's massages leave girls "paralyzed", and not the nature of said "paralysis". This backfires on them; they are forced to stay up all night to make sure Flora didn't take things any further, [[spoiler: and from that moment on Flora has an [[{{Shotacon}} interest]] in poor Kenshi]].
* IfItsYouItsOkay: The girls like Kenshi so much they are willing to let him wash their backs, as in the hot springs bath.
* KarmicDeath: In episode 11, [[spoiler:Cliff kidnaps Ceres and Hazuki and [[IHaveYourWife uses Hazuki]] to force Ceres to become an ActionBomb in a bid to kill Kenshi]]. Needless to say, [[spoiler:Cliff meets his end less than halfway through the episode]]. Also a case of LaserGuidedKarma. [[spoiler:Dagmyer]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards who reluctantly approved of the plan in the first place]], [[spoiler:suffers a milder karmic punishment in the form of a FreakOut and VillainousBreakdown that he doesn't recover from until the end of the ''next'' episode]].
** This is a borderline example, since [[spoiler:Kenshi did throw Cliff off a cliff]]. However, since [[spoiler:it was Cliff's scheme that sent Kenshi into UnstoppableRage in the first place]] it still fits.
* KidHero: Kenshi is 15, but looks and acts young enough to qualify.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Cordyline in episode 10. Her daughter follows suit in the last episode by Emera.]]
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Dagmyer's cronies (well, except [[KarmicDeath Cliff]]) finally drop any pretense of loyalty to Babalun roughly at the ''start'' of the final episode, and only wait for the good moment to surrender, snarking all the time.
* LargeHam: [[BigBad Babalun]], though the [[OurElvesAreBetter king of Shurifon]] also breaks out ham and cheese quite regularly.
* LikesOlderWomen: [[spoiler: Dagmyer]] apparently, with Cordyline. [[spoiler:It didn't last long.]]
* LikeThatShowButWithMecha
* LonelyAtTheTop: In the end, it's implied [[spoiler: Dagmyer is pretty much alone except for his bodyguard.]]
* LostTechnology
* LoveMartyr: Emera. She gets more and more disgusted at the whole hoopla as the series progressed, but stays out of her love to Dagmyer.
* LuminescentBlush: Spinoff of Tenchi -- of course it has to have this.
* MadScientist: Wahanly, who is basically a more energetic version of Washu.
* {{Magitek}}: The Ahou-based technology used in most of the show.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler: The Seikishin Gaia.]]
* MentalFusion: [[spoiler: Doll's mind essentially merges with Mexiah's in the aftermath of episode 8. Neizai[=/=]Reia implies that this is what happened to her and Ulyte after his "death" in the final episode.]]
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Kenshi. In the first episode, he starts out serving the "Masked Knight" ([[FirstEpisodeSpoiler Dagmyer]]) while trying to assassinate Lashara, in the hopes of getting home. Dagmyer tries to force Kenshi to do the dirty work he failed at, insults him at every opportunity, tries to have him killed [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness when he outlived his usefulness]], and adds insult to injury by admitting that he'd never intended to help Kenshi return home in the first place. A few minutes later, Dagmyer's ''offended'' that Kenshi decided to betray his "benefactor" and fight his way out of danger.
* MookHorrorShow: Kenshi, both in and out of his Seikijin, is a fearsome opponent...and that's ''before'' you [[UnstoppableRage piss him off]].
* MsFanservice: Mexiah. ''By far.'' All the women in the cast have their moments, but Mexiah particularly enjoys driving Kenshi nuts.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Kenishi using his SuperStrength, speed, and {{Badass}}ness to do chores around the school. A ''lot'' faster than the staff can handle (ex. by the time it took a maid to finish half her room cleanings, he finished the same number and came to help her). And that mosaic on the arc. While the three artisans are discussing how to replicate the original mosaic on one tower, Kenshi was already done.
* MythologyGag: Kenshi's constant musings about his older sisters, who are obviously Tenchi's harem. None of them have shown up in the show yet, except for a silhouette of Washuu hypnotizing Kenshi. In addition, Kenshi behaves like Ryo-Ohki when upset, and has a shard of crystal from Ryo-Ohki in a necklace. Doll is very similar to D of ''Anime/ParallelTroubleAdventureDual'' both in terms of appearance (also shared with Neju of ''TenchiMuyoGXP'') and origins.
** [[spoiler: In the last episode, Kenshi transforms his Seikijin's BFS into a giant Light Hawk Sword and cuts through the "invincible" Gaia's Shield like a hot knife through butter.]]
** There are also multiple references to Kajishima's ''[[{{Photon}} Photon: The Idiot Adventures]]''. The Koros are more realistic versions of the animal mascot from ''Photon''; Lashara's name is a reference to both Photon Earth and Lashara Moon, Flora and Maria share the surname Nanadan with the villain Papacha, and Lithia shares the same last name as the Pochis. Also, Ahou magic was the {{MacGuffin}} of the ''Photon'' series.
* TheOjou: Aura, Lithia, and Morga.
* OldMaid: Mexiah can be considered part of this as at her age because she is still not married.
* OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The text conversations at the beginning of the first episode and the end of the finale.
** According to WordOfGod, they are two of the Goddesses from the OVA continuity (Tsunami, Washu, or Tokimi).
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Turns out Kenshi is one of the ''weakest'' members of his family, imagine the others then.
* OurElvesAreBetter: The Dark Elves of Shurifon such as Aura are physically superior to everyone on the planet -- at least until Kenshi appeared. They do possess an AchillesHeel [[spoiler: a period of time in the day when they are incredibly weak]], which according to a MrExposition scientist in episode 11 [[spoiler: may be because their bodies are still adjusting to life on a planet other than their homeworld]]. Despite the name, they're textbook ''Wood Elves'', living in harmony with the forest -- another thing Aura and Kenshi have in common.
* PunchClockVillain: Kenshi in the first episode. It doesn't last.
* PuppeteerParasite: [[spoiler: Gaia's core crystal became one of these for both Babalun and his father.]]
* RapeAsDrama: It's implied that the female Seikishi hunting Ceres at the start of episode 11 "had their way" with him beforehand. Everybody seems to get over it after his girlfriend is rescued, but this seems to be part of what drove Kenshi berserk.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler: Mexiah, aka Doll. Also, Wahanly's actual age is 97.]] Kenshi at one point wonders if Lashara belongs to this trope (she doesn't) because of her mature attitude and his experience with the person whose picture is currently on said trope's page.
** Really, though, it wouldn't be a ''TenchiMuyo'' series without this trope in play somehow. To make it clear, Kenshi is at least 18 years junor to his own brother (he's the Rhea and Nobuyuki's son, and they've married only by the end of the third OVA, when Tenchi already graduated), and ''82'' to his sister!
* RealMenWearPink: Kenshi can cook, clean and kick your ass 12 ways to Sunday.
* RedStringOfFate: Invoked in episode 4; Chiaia spends the episode trying to weave a (red) cord to replace the chain of Kenshi's pendant (which she broke while scolding him). She's embarrased and horrified when Lashara's OldRetainer tells everyone about this otherworld custom, and immediately tries to make Kenshi give the cord back. [[spoiler:A few episodes later (after she gives up on Dagmyer) when she sees the pendant again, she decides she doesn't mind anymore.]]
* RescueRomance: In a sense -- in episode 3 Kenshi gets Lapis her handkerchief back after it's thrown from a cliff. Without ropes. Using a vine to climb down.
* TheResenter: [[spoiler: Dagmyer]] becomes more fearful and resentful of Kenshi as time passes, [[VillainousBreakdown and it shows]].
* RieKugimiya: As Lan.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Lahara does acounting of her country's finances, and [[spoiler:later on Kenshi becomes king]].
* RunningGag: Relentless attempts of the older heroines (mainly Mexiah and Flora, but it's not only them) to ''[[BlackComedyRape have their way]]'' with Kenshi.
* SequelHook: Nothing else can be said about the ultra-ambiguous ending. The jewel's still glowing, ends with the antagonists, etc, etc.
* SharingABody: [[spoiler:After Neizai[=/=]Rea's core crystal was implanted in Ulyte, they ended up switching forms depending on whose will was stronger. Neizai eventually took full control of their body when Ulyte's strength gave out.]]
* {{Shotacon}}: Mexiah's [[spoiler: and Flora's]] interest in 15 year-old Kenshi is a little disturbing at times.
* ShoutOut: [[TheOjou Morga]]'s Seikijin in the last episode is an [[CaptainErsatz ersatz]] [[GetterRobo Getter-1]], complete with [[AnAxeToGrind double tomahawks]]. [[TheBerserker And she uses it in the appropriate manner, too]].
** another shout out is one too final fantasy 11, the uniforms the male students wear near the end are the same uniforms that summoners wear in final fantasy 11.
* ShutUpHannibal: Kenshi uses this on Babalun when he tries to [[spoiler: add MoreThanMindControl to his attempt to use the same brainwashing that he used on Mexiah[=/=]Doll.]]
* SlasherSmile: [[spoiler: Kenshi of all people]] sports one in episodes 11 and 13.
* SmugSnake: Lan
* SpiderTank: Wahan's Kikkoujin[=/=]Mechaworkers.
* StalkerWithATestTube: After Kenshi reveals that he's a Seikishi, he starts to run into this trope from the various nations of Geminar (mostly in the form of various factions of his LoveDodecahedron); Lashara's mostly happy at the chance to play middleman.
* SuperBreedingProgram: In order to ensure a strong future generation of future pilots, all of the Seikishi are effectively in one of these; they're required to have children with multiple designated partners before finally being allowed to marry. The male Seikishi have it worse, being treated like "stud horses" before ending up in {{Bureaucratically Arranged Marriage}}s.
* SupremeChef: Turns out the secret ingredient Kenshi needed to make his soup better was [[spoiler: adding dried and powdered bugs]].
* ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler: Cliff]] has a FreakOut when he sees that Kenshi escaped his "perfect" plan to kill him.
** [[spoiler: Babalun has a similar reaction in the final episode when Kenshi cleaves the "unbreakable" Gaia's Shield]].
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Four Girls]]: The four Holy Academy students with [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair multicolored hair]] who make several appearances through the series (and have crushes on Kenshi, naturally.)
** [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Those Four Girls]]: In episode 12, when Lan attacks Kenshi's group while they're creating the Tenchi-Ken; they arrive in the nick of time, giving Kenshi enough time to finish the sword and save the day.
** ColourfulThemeNaming: Those Four Girls have names loosely based on their hair colors -- Yeliss, Bwoole, Gryino, and Wreda.
*** Their ''Seikijin'' is even the same color as their hair color, taking this trope UpToEleven.
* ToxicPhlebotinum: A lesser variation -- most Ahou technology makes normal people ill without shielding. Seikishi (pilots) are people who can use the Seikijin mecha [[HourOfPower for a useful amount of time]] before becoming sick.
* {{Tsundere}}: Lashara (Type B), Chiaia and Lithia (Type A) all fit the bill to some degree.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Chiaia to Dagmyer; among other factors, the fact that he wasn't allowed to marry for love as a male Seikishi complicated their relationship. It comes to a head in episode 9 when [[spoiler: [[ManipulativeBastard Dagmyer tries to exploit her crush]] by asking her to kill Kenshi. In a ShoutOut to an incident in the original ''TenchiMuyo'' OVA, she nearly goes through with it but backs out at the last moment.]] Even after this she still tries to persuade Dagmyer to change his mind before it's too late. During a very tense situation she ultimately [[spoiler: chooses to go with Kenshi to save Lashara instead of staying with Dagmyer. This just causes Dagmyer to resent Kenshi even more.]]
* UnluckyEverydude: Kenshi ''appears'' to be this at first, what with the whole "launched into a strange world [[UnwantedHarem surrounded by crazy women]] thing...[[GodModeSue until he starts proving how]] ''[[GodModeSue vastly]]'' [[GodModeSue superior he is to almost everyone around him.]] The funny thing is that as he mentions himself, he isn't used to this, since [[OverShadowedByAwesome he was always weak compared to the outrageously powerful "sisters" he grew up with]]. However, put in a more "downscaled" environment, only Doll and the strongest dark elves even come close to his abilities.
* UnstoppableRage: Subverted. Kenshi's rage does give him the power to escape from a deadly trap on his own and grants his Seikijin increased strength, but it also [[HeroicRROD causes the mecha to reach its operational limits even faster]].
* UnwantedHarem: It ''is'' a ''Tenchi'' spinoff, after all.
* VillainDecay: If he didn't KickTheDog so many times, you'd almost feel sorry for [[spoiler: Dagmyer]].
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Dagmyer]] has one spanning most of the series due to growing fear and resentment of Kenshi. It culminates in a FreakOut and complete mental collapse in episode 11 [[spoiler: after Kenshi goes ''[[UnstoppableRage berserk]]'' in his Seikishi, brutally kills one of his comrades, and nearly does the same to Dagmyer, scaring him shitless]].
* VillainousValour: [[spoiler: Dagmyer's]] duel with Kenshi in the final episode is made of this trope. He's still hopelessly outmatched, but he faces his fears head-on and meets defeat with honor.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Lashara and Maria.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Mexiah/Doll. [[spoiler: And [[GenderBender Ulyte/Reia]].]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Dagmyer wants to change the status quo because he's sick of being treated like a stud horse. Too bad he's doing this by following Babalun's orders.
* WhamEpisode: Episode 8. [[spoiler:AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs, Dagmyer's plan is revealed, Doll makes her triumphant return, the audience gets their fill of HumongousMecha action... and [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass everyone finds out what Kenshi can really do]].]]
* WorldOfActionGirls: Geminar in a nutshell.

The 2009 anime '''''Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari''''' ('''''Tenchi Muyo: War on Geminar''''' in the States) is a Canon {{spinoff}} of the ''TenchiMuyo'' {{OVA}} series that takes place 15 years after TenchiMuyoGXP. The main character, Kenshi, is Tenchi's half brother and depicts him being forcefully taken from his home and his family by unknown forces, and sent to a new alternate universe on a planet called Geminar. There are a few thinly veiled references and nods to the ''Tenchi Muyo'' series while Omake material released in Manga, Novel and Doujinshi formats expands the series and further fleshes out the overall story (something Masaki Kajishima has a reputation for).

At the beginning of the show, Kenshi has been told he needs to help with an assassination plot in return for going home. The target of assassination is the newly crowned queen of one of the lands in this world. When faced with killing a girl roughly the same age as him he can't do it. Eventually, he ends up being a servant of the queen while she is attending a super elite school for nobility and pilots for somewhat organic looking super robots. Being the little brother of the guy who pretty much made the HaremGenre what it is today, it doesn't take long before the good ole [[ChickMagnet Masaki charm]] goes to work and gets chased by almost every girl in the school.....literally.

The show was released in OVA format (one episode a month), but also aired on television through Japanese pay-per-view service. The first episode was later "enhanced" with extra scenes for the Blu-Ray release.

Now with a [[Characters/IsekaiNoSeikishiMonogatari character sheet]] that NeedsWikiMagicLove.

------

!!The show provides examples of the following tropes:

* AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] due to the fact that many world leaders' children go to this school. [[spoiler: One episode they elect Kenshi to the school government just so that everyone's attention will be on him and they can actually get work done.]]
* AccidentalPervert: Seems Kenshi's ''Massage Mode'' brings this up to some girls.
* AllAmazonsWantHercules: As the series progresses Kenshi's harem keeps getting bigger until [[spoiler: it pretty much includes everyone at the school. Keep in mind that the attendants at the school include the kids of all the top leaders of the world's governments.]]
* AlmightyJanitor: Before Kenshi reveals that he's a Seikishi, he manages to earn this kind of reputation as Lashara's servant.
* AMechByAnyOtherName: The Seikijin ("Holy Machine Men").
* [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Mother]]: Flora. '''BIG TIME'''.
* AmazonBrigade: Male Seikijin pilots are extremely rare, so most fighting is actually done by the far more numerous girls.
* AnimeHair: Present and accounted for.
* AnimalMotifs: Not a real animal, but the girls at the school frequently compare Kenshi to the native Koro, a [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter two-tailed white squirrel like creature]]. It's one of the reasons that so many of the girls develop a crush on him.
** Given that Kenshi acts like a male version of Ryo-Ohki much of the time.
* BackgroundMagicField: The "Draft of Ena", which supplies power to the Seikijin mecha and most of the {{Magitek}} in the series. It only extends to a certain height, so some areas, like the highlands, are off-limits without special equipment.
* {{Badass}}: [[OneManArmy Kenshi]], it runs in the family.
* BattleHarem: Most of Kenshi's harem are pilots.
* BerserkButton: Kenshi loves his crystals. Chiaia can make him do almost anything if she threatens his collection. [[spoiler:On the other hand, Kenshi only forms the Light Hawk Sword in the final battle when she promises to let him dig all he wants if he beats Gaia.]]
* BetaCouple: Ceres and his girlfriend Hazuki, once they join the crew of the ''Swan''.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: ''DO NOT PISS OFF'' Kenshi.
** Also, the students at the Holy Academy spend so much time acting like... schoolgirls, it's easy to forget that, say, [[ShrinkingViolet Lapis]] is a fully-trained ActionGirl who knows how to use a HumongousMecha.
* BigBad: Babalun [[spoiler: who is being controlled by the core crystal of the Seikishin Gaia that was implanted in him at a young age. Gaia itself is TheManBehindTheMan scheming to revive itself.]]
* BiTheWay: Mexiah might be one if episode 8 has anything to say about it.
* {{BFS}}: Some of the Seikijin wield these. In episode 12 [[spoiler: Kenshi compresses a ''mountain'' to create a huge stone {{BFS}}. Which turns into an ''even bigger'' LaserSword in the final episode. Which then turns into a smaller but far more powerful ''Light Hawk Sword'']].
* BloodlessCarnage: You can rip a Sekishi in pieces, but you never see anything else really bleed.
* BodyguardCrush: Emera to Dagmyer.
* BookEnds: The OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness in the first and last scenes.
* BoisterousBruiser: Aura's father.
* CastAsAMask: Used as a RedHerring when Mexiah had the same voice actress as the mysterious masked woman Neizai who tended to show up when Mexiah disappeared. [[spoiler:Mexiah was actually the alter ego of Doll (different actress), and Neizai was actually Rea Second (different actress). The show actually throws a red herring in the WhamEpisode, when Ulyte talks to Neizai while the camera shows a closeup of Mexiah with MindControlEyes... with her mouth conveniently obscured.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: The first half of the series is devoted to this (and {{Fanservice}}). Initially Kenshi just wants to go home. While he never really loses that goal, he also grows closer to his fellow students at the academy including the members of his UnwantedHarem. All so that by the time the series gets back to the mecha action, Kenshi actually has a reason to fight other than "I want to go home".
* CharClone: Dagmyer. Masked blond, inspiring leader and idealist, ManipulativeBastard... he hits most of the criteria except that he uses a blue Seikishin. And that he's hopelessly outmatched by [[GodModeSue Kenshi.]]
** Ulyte also qualifies; [[HiddenAgendaVillain playing both sides against the middle for the sake of his own mysterious agenda]]. [[spoiler:And he/she even has the mask aspect covered as Neizai.]]
* ChasteHero: Kenshi shows some signs of it, but we can't blame him; he just wants to go home.
* ChekhovsGag: Wahanly creates a generator for the training PoweredArmor to use it to chase Kenshi down in the fifth episode. [[spoiler:The modified armor gets used for guerilla warfare in the last episode.]]
* ChickMagnet: Kenshi of course.
** Due to cooking skills, strength/speed, and all around niceness. The fact that male Seikijin pilots are already in high demand around here doesn't hurt, either.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Lashara when she actually sees affection that might get Kenshi from under her thumb (especially involving her [[TheRival Rival]]). Chiaia whenever Kenshi appears too happy. Both whenever there's something to blame or exploit.
* ColorCodedCharacters: The various Seikijin have colors and outward appearances dependent on who is piloting them.
* ConvenientlyUnverifiableCoverStory: Lashara and Chiaia decide to hide Kenshi's connection to the white Seikijin that attacked the ''Swan'' in the first episode by having him serve as one of Lashara's servants. Instead of revealing he's from another dimension (which would basically ruin the deception by itself), Kenshi hides his unfamiliarity with the customs of the world of Geminar by claiming to be from "Kouchi" -- the highlands (''Kouchi'' actualy means this) above the Draft of Ena which powers the Seikijin and the other {{Magitek}}, and whose residents are conveniently isolated socially as well as physically.
* CookingDuel: A literal example breaks out in the fifth episode when Maria tries to set a HoneyTrap for Kenshi; Aura suggests that everyone gathers ingredients in the forest and cook a pot-dish with them. The best dish wins ownership of Kenshi.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Kenshi and Flora.
* DarkActionGirl: Lan. (Doll seems to be one at first, but after the reveal in episode 8 [[spoiler:she's more of a BrainwashedAndCrazy FemmeFatale]].)
** FauxActionGirl as well, as she hardly ever fights, and in these cases is usually completely dominated not only by Kenshi or Neizai, but by Emera as well.
* DarwinistDesire: It is revealed that due to male Mecha Masters being so rare, they are made to marry female Mecha Masters to produce superior Mecha Masters. Kenchi even compares male Mecha Masters treatment as if they were breeding horses and the sperm of a male Mecha Master is very valuable. Women Mecha Masters on the other hand are free to marry whoever they want since there is so many of them.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Several members of his harem but in particular: Chiaia, whenever he appears happy, quota demands it, or just when she's bored or something good happens to him. Lashara and Mexiah whenever there's an opportunity to exploit him for their own gain or to make him unhappy, and Lithia who refuses to acknowledge him, and frequently puts him down (much like the others in this list).
* DubNameChange: In Funimation's subtitled streams, they changed "Seikishi (Holy Machine Wielders)" to "Sacred Mechamaster", "Seikijin (Holy Machine Men)" to "Sacred Mechanoid", "Seieishi (Holy Defenders)" to "Sacred Mechaguardian", "Seikishin (Holy Machine God)" to "Sacred Mechalord", and "Kikkoujin (Machine Workers)" to "Mechaworker".
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Mexiah is quite popular around the girls.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Ulyte seems a bit too ''friendly'' with Kenshi.
* EveryoneChasingYou: This keeps happening to Kenshi as he gets more popular and in more important positions. By the fifth episode, [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Four Girls]] organize the student body to do it more efficiently, using tactics, radios, and PoweredArmor.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Lashara, Maria, and Aura, the latter who also counts as a BadassPrincess.
* {{Expy}}: To keep it short, Kenshi is Tenchi's half-brother as such he has almost all the traits of his sibling in ''TenchiMuyo'', only in a different world.
* {{Fanservice}}: Of course.
* FauxActionGirl: As mentioned above, Lan comes across as a Faux DarkActionGirl. More generally, the trope gets ''inverted'' here: most Seikishi (pilots) are female, and the few male pilots are coddled, condescended to, given substandard training, and treated like "stud horses". Dagmyer's rebellion is partially a JackieRobinsonStory, trying to prove that male Seikishi can hold their own on the battlefield -- but after a promising start, they get shoved to the sidelines and outshone by the women on Babalun's side (Kenshi and Aura's father are full-fledged Action Guys, though).
* FetishFuelFuture: Some of the previous otherworlders brought to Geminar made their marks on the culture -- like the pillow fight in episode six. Kenshi's disturbed about how much of it he recognizes from his father's "[[PornStash library]]".
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Kenshi -- from our world, into Lashara's.
* {{Freakout}}: Several, one that comes to mind when the girls find out Kenshi's ''secret'' ingredient for flavor in his soup.
* [[FreeLoveFuture Free Love Alternate Dimension]]
* HappyEndingMassage: Turns out Kenshi's massages give the girls this feeling as an aftereffect.
* HimeCut: Maria
* HoneyTrap: Maria persuades Yukine into trying to set one for Kenshi, to both [[ShipperOnDeck help her bodyguard win Kenshi's heart]] and [[UnknownRival put one over on Lashara]].
* HotBlooded: King Shurifon, who's chewing the scenery in almost all his scenes. Quite an unusual behavior for an ''elf''.
* HotForStudent: Mexiah [[spoiler: and maybe "Ulyte"]] for Kenshi.
* HourOfPower: Pilots can only operate Seikijin for limited amounts of time.
* HumongousMecha: The Seikijin. Prominent in episode one, then all but ignored until episode 8.
* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: Kenshi is a rather bizarre case. In episode 3, Mexiah somehow brainwashes him to make him turn into a "berserker massage machine" at her command. Then she gets Wahan, Aura, Lithia, Yukine, and various other girls to help him practice without getting into the specifics. Afterwards, all of them are left in states of heightened arousal and sensitivity; in Yukine's case, ''just being lightly tapped on the back'' nearly triggered an orgasm.
** In episode 6, Lashara and Maria trigger his "massage machine" state again to get payback from Queen Flora for their earlier humiliations in that episode -- knowing only that Kenshi's massages leave girls "paralyzed", and not the nature of said "paralysis". This backfires on them; they are forced to stay up all night to make sure Flora didn't take things any further, [[spoiler: and from that moment on Flora has an [[{{Shotacon}} interest]] in poor Kenshi]].
* IfItsYouItsOkay: The girls like Kenshi so much they are willing to let him wash their backs, as in the hot springs bath.
* KarmicDeath: In episode 11, [[spoiler:Cliff kidnaps Ceres and Hazuki and [[IHaveYourWife uses Hazuki]] to force Ceres to become an ActionBomb in a bid to kill Kenshi]]. Needless to say, [[spoiler:Cliff meets his end less than halfway through the episode]]. Also a case of LaserGuidedKarma. [[spoiler:Dagmyer]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards who reluctantly approved of the plan in the first place]], [[spoiler:suffers a milder karmic punishment in the form of a FreakOut and VillainousBreakdown that he doesn't recover from until the end of the ''next'' episode]].
** This is a borderline example, since [[spoiler:Kenshi did throw Cliff off a cliff]]. However, since [[spoiler:it was Cliff's scheme that sent Kenshi into UnstoppableRage in the first place]] it still fits.
* KidHero: Kenshi is 15, but looks and acts young enough to qualify.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Cordyline in episode 10. Her daughter follows suit in the last episode by Emera.]]
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Dagmyer's cronies (well, except [[KarmicDeath Cliff]]) finally drop any pretense of loyalty to Babalun roughly at the ''start'' of the final episode, and only wait for the good moment to surrender, snarking all the time.
* LargeHam: [[BigBad Babalun]], though the [[OurElvesAreBetter king of Shurifon]] also breaks out ham and cheese quite regularly.
* LikesOlderWomen: [[spoiler: Dagmyer]] apparently, with Cordyline. [[spoiler:It didn't last long.]]
* LikeThatShowButWithMecha
* LonelyAtTheTop: In the end, it's implied [[spoiler: Dagmyer is pretty much alone except for his bodyguard.]]
* LostTechnology
* LoveMartyr: Emera. She gets more and more disgusted at the whole hoopla as the series progressed, but stays out of her love to Dagmyer.
* LuminescentBlush: Spinoff of Tenchi -- of course it has to have this.
* MadScientist: Wahanly, who is basically a more energetic version of Washu.
* {{Magitek}}: The Ahou-based technology used in most of the show.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler: The Seikishin Gaia.]]
* MentalFusion: [[spoiler: Doll's mind essentially merges with Mexiah's in the aftermath of episode 8. Neizai[=/=]Reia implies that this is what happened to her and Ulyte after his "death" in the final episode.]]
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Kenshi. In the first episode, he starts out serving the "Masked Knight" ([[FirstEpisodeSpoiler Dagmyer]]) while trying to assassinate Lashara, in the hopes of getting home. Dagmyer tries to force Kenshi to do the dirty work he failed at, insults him at every opportunity, tries to have him killed [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness when he outlived his usefulness]], and adds insult to injury by admitting that he'd never intended to help Kenshi return home in the first place. A few minutes later, Dagmyer's ''offended'' that Kenshi decided to betray his "benefactor" and fight his way out of danger.
* MookHorrorShow: Kenshi, both in and out of his Seikijin, is a fearsome opponent...and that's ''before'' you [[UnstoppableRage piss him off]].
* MsFanservice: Mexiah. ''By far.'' All the women in the cast have their moments, but Mexiah particularly enjoys driving Kenshi nuts.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Kenishi using his SuperStrength, speed, and {{Badass}}ness to do chores around the school. A ''lot'' faster than the staff can handle (ex. by the time it took a maid to finish half her room cleanings, he finished the same number and came to help her). And that mosaic on the arc. While the three artisans are discussing how to replicate the original mosaic on one tower, Kenshi was already done.
* MythologyGag: Kenshi's constant musings about his older sisters, who are obviously Tenchi's harem. None of them have shown up in the show yet, except for a silhouette of Washuu hypnotizing Kenshi. In addition, Kenshi behaves like Ryo-Ohki when upset, and has a shard of crystal from Ryo-Ohki in a necklace. Doll is very similar to D of ''Anime/ParallelTroubleAdventureDual'' both in terms of appearance (also shared with Neju of ''TenchiMuyoGXP'') and origins.
** [[spoiler: In the last episode, Kenshi transforms his Seikijin's BFS into a giant Light Hawk Sword and cuts through the "invincible" Gaia's Shield like a hot knife through butter.]]
** There are also multiple references to Kajishima's ''[[{{Photon}} Photon: The Idiot Adventures]]''. The Koros are more realistic versions of the animal mascot from ''Photon''; Lashara's name is a reference to both Photon Earth and Lashara Moon, Flora and Maria share the surname Nanadan with the villain Papacha, and Lithia shares the same last name as the Pochis. Also, Ahou magic was the {{MacGuffin}} of the ''Photon'' series.
* TheOjou: Aura, Lithia, and Morga.
* OldMaid: Mexiah can be considered part of this as at her age because she is still not married.
* OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: The text conversations at the beginning of the first episode and the end of the finale.
** According to WordOfGod, they are two of the Goddesses from the OVA continuity (Tsunami, Washu, or Tokimi).
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Turns out Kenshi is one of the ''weakest'' members of his family, imagine the others then.
* OurElvesAreBetter: The Dark Elves of Shurifon such as Aura are physically superior to everyone on the planet -- at least until Kenshi appeared. They do possess an AchillesHeel [[spoiler: a period of time in the day when they are incredibly weak]], which according to a MrExposition scientist in episode 11 [[spoiler: may be because their bodies are still adjusting to life on a planet other than their homeworld]]. Despite the name, they're textbook ''Wood Elves'', living in harmony with the forest -- another thing Aura and Kenshi have in common.
* PunchClockVillain: Kenshi in the first episode. It doesn't last.
* PuppeteerParasite: [[spoiler: Gaia's core crystal became one of these for both Babalun and his father.]]
* RapeAsDrama: It's implied that the female Seikishi hunting Ceres at the start of episode 11 "had their way" with him beforehand. Everybody seems to get over it after his girlfriend is rescued, but this seems to be part of what drove Kenshi berserk.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler: Mexiah, aka Doll. Also, Wahanly's actual age is 97.]] Kenshi at one point wonders if Lashara belongs to this trope (she doesn't) because of her mature attitude and his experience with the person whose picture is currently on said trope's page.
** Really, though, it wouldn't be a ''TenchiMuyo'' series without this trope in play somehow. To make it clear, Kenshi is at least 18 years junor to his own brother (he's the Rhea and Nobuyuki's son, and they've married only by the end of the third OVA, when Tenchi already graduated), and ''82'' to his sister!
* RealMenWearPink: Kenshi can cook, clean and kick your ass 12 ways to Sunday.
* RedStringOfFate: Invoked in episode 4; Chiaia spends the episode trying to weave a (red) cord to replace the chain of Kenshi's pendant (which she broke while scolding him). She's embarrased and horrified when Lashara's OldRetainer tells everyone about this otherworld custom, and immediately tries to make Kenshi give the cord back. [[spoiler:A few episodes later (after she gives up on Dagmyer) when she sees the pendant again, she decides she doesn't mind anymore.]]
* RescueRomance: In a sense -- in episode 3 Kenshi gets Lapis her handkerchief back after it's thrown from a cliff. Without ropes. Using a vine to climb down.
* TheResenter: [[spoiler: Dagmyer]] becomes more fearful and resentful of Kenshi as time passes, [[VillainousBreakdown and it shows]].
* RieKugimiya: As Lan.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Lahara does acounting of her country's finances, and [[spoiler:later on Kenshi becomes king]].
* RunningGag: Relentless attempts of the older heroines (mainly Mexiah and Flora, but it's not only them) to ''[[BlackComedyRape have their way]]'' with Kenshi.
* SequelHook: Nothing else can be said about the ultra-ambiguous ending. The jewel's still glowing, ends with the antagonists, etc, etc.
* SharingABody: [[spoiler:After Neizai[=/=]Rea's core crystal was implanted in Ulyte, they ended up switching forms depending on whose will was stronger. Neizai eventually took full control of their body when Ulyte's strength gave out.]]
* {{Shotacon}}: Mexiah's [[spoiler: and Flora's]] interest in 15 year-old Kenshi is a little disturbing at times.
* ShoutOut: [[TheOjou Morga]]'s Seikijin in the last episode is an [[CaptainErsatz ersatz]] [[GetterRobo Getter-1]], complete with [[AnAxeToGrind double tomahawks]]. [[TheBerserker And she uses it in the appropriate manner, too]].
** another shout out is one too final fantasy 11, the uniforms the male students wear near the end are the same uniforms that summoners wear in final fantasy 11.
* ShutUpHannibal: Kenshi uses this on Babalun when he tries to [[spoiler: add MoreThanMindControl to his attempt to use the same brainwashing that he used on Mexiah[=/=]Doll.]]
* SlasherSmile: [[spoiler: Kenshi of all people]] sports one in episodes 11 and 13.
* SmugSnake: Lan
* SpiderTank: Wahan's Kikkoujin[=/=]Mechaworkers.
* StalkerWithATestTube: After Kenshi reveals that he's a Seikishi, he starts to run into this trope from the various nations of Geminar (mostly in the form of various factions of his LoveDodecahedron); Lashara's mostly happy at the chance to play middleman.
* SuperBreedingProgram: In order to ensure a strong future generation of future pilots, all of the Seikishi are effectively in one of these; they're required to have children with multiple designated partners before finally being allowed to marry. The male Seikishi have it worse, being treated like "stud horses" before ending up in {{Bureaucratically Arranged Marriage}}s.
* SupremeChef: Turns out the secret ingredient Kenshi needed to make his soup better was [[spoiler: adding dried and powdered bugs]].
* ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler: Cliff]] has a FreakOut when he sees that Kenshi escaped his "perfect" plan to kill him.
** [[spoiler: Babalun has a similar reaction in the final episode when Kenshi cleaves the "unbreakable" Gaia's Shield]].
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Those Four Girls]]: The four Holy Academy students with [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair multicolored hair]] who make several appearances through the series (and have crushes on Kenshi, naturally.)
** [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Those Four Girls]]: In episode 12, when Lan attacks Kenshi's group while they're creating the Tenchi-Ken; they arrive in the nick of time, giving Kenshi enough time to finish the sword and save the day.
** ColourfulThemeNaming: Those Four Girls have names loosely based on their hair colors -- Yeliss, Bwoole, Gryino, and Wreda.
*** Their ''Seikijin'' is even the same color as their hair color, taking this trope UpToEleven.
* ToxicPhlebotinum: A lesser variation -- most Ahou technology makes normal people ill without shielding. Seikishi (pilots) are people who can use the Seikijin mecha [[HourOfPower for a useful amount of time]] before becoming sick.
* {{Tsundere}}: Lashara (Type B), Chiaia and Lithia (Type A) all fit the bill to some degree.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Chiaia to Dagmyer; among other factors, the fact that he wasn't allowed to marry for love as a male Seikishi complicated their relationship. It comes to a head in episode 9 when [[spoiler: [[ManipulativeBastard Dagmyer tries to exploit her crush]] by asking her to kill Kenshi. In a ShoutOut to an incident in the original ''TenchiMuyo'' OVA, she nearly goes through with it but backs out at the last moment.]] Even after this she still tries to persuade Dagmyer to change his mind before it's too late. During a very tense situation she ultimately [[spoiler: chooses to go with Kenshi to save Lashara instead of staying with Dagmyer. This just causes Dagmyer to resent Kenshi even more.]]
* UnluckyEverydude: Kenshi ''appears'' to be this at first, what with the whole "launched into a strange world [[UnwantedHarem surrounded by crazy women]] thing...[[GodModeSue until he starts proving how]] ''[[GodModeSue vastly]]'' [[GodModeSue superior he is to almost everyone around him.]] The funny thing is that as he mentions himself, he isn't used to this, since [[OverShadowedByAwesome he was always weak compared to the outrageously powerful "sisters" he grew up with]]. However, put in a more "downscaled" environment, only Doll and the strongest dark elves even come close to his abilities.
* UnstoppableRage: Subverted. Kenshi's rage does give him the power to escape from a deadly trap on his own and grants his Seikijin increased strength, but it also [[HeroicRROD causes the mecha to reach its operational limits even faster]].
* UnwantedHarem: It ''is'' a ''Tenchi'' spinoff, after all.
* VillainDecay: If he didn't KickTheDog so many times, you'd almost feel sorry for [[spoiler: Dagmyer]].
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Dagmyer]] has one spanning most of the series due to growing fear and resentment of Kenshi. It culminates in a FreakOut and complete mental collapse in episode 11 [[spoiler: after Kenshi goes ''[[UnstoppableRage berserk]]'' in his Seikishi, brutally kills one of his comrades, and nearly does the same to Dagmyer, scaring him shitless]].
* VillainousValour: [[spoiler: Dagmyer's]] duel with Kenshi in the final episode is made of this trope. He's still hopelessly outmatched, but he faces his fears head-on and meets defeat with honor.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Lashara and Maria.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Mexiah/Doll. [[spoiler: And [[GenderBender Ulyte/Reia]].]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Dagmyer wants to change the status quo because he's sick of being treated like a stud horse. Too bad he's doing this by following Babalun's orders.
* WhamEpisode: Episode 8. [[spoiler:AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs, Dagmyer's plan is revealed, Doll makes her triumphant return, the audience gets their fill of HumongousMecha action... and [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass everyone finds out what Kenshi can really do]].]]
* WorldOfActionGirls: Geminar in a nutshell.

''Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari'' is a Canon {{spinoff}} of the ''TenchiMuyo'' {{OVA}} series, and takes place 15 years after TenchiMuyoGXP. The main character, Kenshi, is Tenchi's half brother and depicts him being forcefully taken from his home and his family by unknown forces, and sent to a new alternate universe on a planet called Geminar. There are a few thinly veiled references and nods to the ''Tenchi Muyo'' series while Omake material released in Manga, Novel and Doujinshi formats expands the series and further fleshes out the overall story (Something Masaki Kajishima is well known for).

At the beginning of the show Kenshi has been told he needs to help with an assassination plot in return for going home. The target of assassination is the newly crowned queen of one of the lands in this world. When faced with killing a girl roughly the same age as him he can't do it. Eventually, he ends up being a servant of the queen while she is attending a super elite school for nobility and pilots for somewhat organic looking super robots. Being the little brother of the guy who pretty much made the HaremGenre what it is today, it doesn't take long before the good ole [[ChickMagnet Masaki charm]] goes to work and gets chased by almost every girl in the school.....literally.

First started airing in 2009 and was released in OVA format releasing one episode a month. Was also aired on television through Japanese pay-per-view service, although the first episode was later "enhanced" with extra scenes for the Blu Ray release. It has been licenced by FUNimation, under the title ''Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar''.
