Tenchi in Tokyo cels were some of the first cels we ever bought. Both I and my daughter watched all the Tenchi series on TV together so Tenchi was the most accessible starting point for our collecting. It's still a sentimental favorite. This series came out in 1997 and the character designer,Masaki Kajishima, has designed the characters for most of the Tenchi and related series. He was also responsible for character design on other AIC series, including Photon, the Idiot Adventures.
