Influential to anime as whole? Yes, but particularly to Tenchi? No
For a long time (pretty much since I brought it up here, lol) the Iczer series has had a close tie to Tenchi, particularly through Iczer 3
(released over here as Iczer Reborn). Not only because of the GLARINGLY obvious influence that Iczer-3 had on Ryoko's character and design, but the fact that both Hiroki Hayashi and Masaki Kajishima worked on Iczer-3
This is one of the earliest "Ryoko" Sketches from the 10th anniversary Tenchi set
And here's Iczer and Iczer 3
It basically looks like Kajishima took Iczer 1, put Iczer 3's hair on her and then drew it into a semi-original style, I mean look at this cover of Animenominous, it's not that far removed from Ryoko, it's not hard to imagine someone close to production in Japan could spin it easily
When we were young, we lived in the limelight.
Whenever I looked over, my buddies were next to me.
Our world was feverish, red hot.
Far, far away, back in the era of dreams,
we once burned brightly as the sun.
