* BrokenBase: Fan reaction towards this series is mixed.

to:

* BrokenBase: Fan reaction towards this series is mixed. On paper, it seemed like something that fans would want, especially since Tenchi has always been seen as a SatelliteCharacter for the girls and people wanted to see him go on his own adventures and do his own thing without always being defined by his UnwantedHarem. In practice, the show proved to be one of the most divisive Tenchi series out there due to the art style, the humor, the new love interest in Sakuya, and just about anything you can imagine.

* RecycledScript: The way the script ends, it could be called "An extended version of the Tsunami/Sasami" episode in the original series [[spoiler: With Yugi instead of Sasami one day becoming a romantic rival as well]]

to:

* LesYay: Between Masayo and Ayeka in "Tokyo or Bust". Sasami lampshades this.

* DieForOurShip: Poor Sakuya.

* DieForOurShip: Poor Sakuya. If there's any one thing Ryoko and Ayeka fans can agree on, it's that they don't want Tenchi ending up with her.

** Also, the fact that this series is yet *another* AU storyline, rather than being a direct sequel to the previous Tenchi Universe series. It failed to capitalize on the previous TV series' blatant sequel hook ending, and the whole idea of the show (Tenchi deciding to move away from his crazy harem and go to school in the city; introducing a Muggle love interest outside of the Masaki harem...) feels like a sequel and deliberately plays off of the audiences' assumed familiarity with the characters and their relationships. Even the show itself seems to want to confuse the issue, what with its In Media Res opening episode, and not getting to the characters' origin stories until episode 7.

Also not helping matters is one episode having Noboyuki mention Achika and an image of her younger self from the first Tenchi movie appearing.

* RelationshipSue: Subverted with Sakuya. [[spoiler:She's the shadow of the BigBad, and is just there to try to trap Tenchi. This means, she's a RelationshipSue and has to stay that way so the story works.]]
** [[spoiler: Sakuya's almost as vicious a [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstruction]] as [[KingdomHearts Xion]]. First, since every aspect of her personality tailor-made ''in-universe'' [[SatelliteCharacter to Tenchi's preferences]], she has some pretty glaring holes in her FakeMemories (and personal life, if her [[WhiteVoidRoom mostly-empty apartment]] is any indication). Second, despite being sentient, she ''doesn't exist'' and [[TomatoInTheMirror figures this out]] [[BreakTheCutie towards the end]], even becoming an UnPerson before [[KillTheCutie re-absorption]]. Her speech during her own heroic sacrifice can be summarized as "I enjoyed being your personal MarySue, but now [[DareToBeBadass you've got to leave me and save your other friends]] because they're real and I'm not."]]
*** For some, that [[spoiler:perfect and complete selfless attitude that seems to be bait to garner sympathy for the character]] makes her a [[PuritySue whole 'nother Sue]].
** QuirkyMinibossSquad member Hotsuma, who seduces Ryoko back to her life as a SpacePirate and away from her TrueCompanions, was frequently paired with her for "real" in {{fanfic}}.

** [[spoiler: AlasPoorScrappy]]: For some. Whether you liked her or not, it can't be disagreed that [[spoiler: having Yugi give her a BreakThemByTalking right before re-absorbing her by force (and when the poor kid is crying and begging Tenchi to help her!)]] was ''really'' cruel.

** Alternatively, it could've shown how Tenchi would been as a normal student instead of an insanely powerful hero.
