YMMV: Tenchi Muyo GXP
  • Better on DVD
  • Ear Worm: The opening song, in two languages.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Erma.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Seto.
  • Moe: Amane as a kid.
  • Nightmare Fuel ( Upon taking control of the mech in Episode 24, Seina uses the force of his will to slowly crush a ship into a small ball, complete with a shot of the horrified crew. It's a very strange scene for such a lighthearted show.) Somehow made worse by the fact that the usual Crowning Musicof Awesome starts playing as it happens. Picture "The Rising Spirit" playing while Gaara crushes people. It's that much of a disconnect.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap (Seiryo Tennan qualifies. In the Tenchi OVAs he's an unlikeable fop who shows up just long enough for Tenchi to win a duel with him by default thanks to Mihoshi's bad piloting. In this series he's a credible threat and a genuinely likeable character, even if he is still a Bad Ass Butt Monkey.)
  • The Scrappy: NB (and some other elements of Watanabe's humor) wore out their welcome with some of the audience. Officially? Well, in the crossover episode with the Tenchi Muyo! cast that Masaki Kajishima directed, NB literally spent the whole time in a doghouse.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Seina's total fear at the sight of Kirika covered in blood and her pain at his rejection. Gets dropped faster than you can blink.
  • Villain Decay: Tarant Shank.
