In reply to the title of this thread rather than its intended purpose: My head would explode with joy!
Actually as we know Tenchi Universe did in fact continue after its run in the form of the two Tenchi Muyo in Love movies (just thought I'd clarify). This raises the issue of just what is left to do in that storyline. Personally I feel that the storyline/character developement reached its logical and fitting (and awesome!) conclusion. So in my mind any Universe "sequel" would have to take place between the end of the show and the beginning of TMiL2, preferably between the two films.
As for ideas for this new series, I would say that it should stay true to the format established by TU, in that the main story of the season wouldn't begin until perhaps a third of the way in. Since all of the characters have been thouroughly introduced and familiarized there would need to be a greater focus on their pasts. I for one would love to see Ryoko's space pirate past come back and play a big role. Also THERE MUST be more focus and info on Kiyone and Mihoshi's past! we have seen the Jurai side of this universe, so a deeper look at something like the GP or some other new galactic entity would be good. *Passes mic*
p.s. Just putting it out there before someone else does. I don't think TiT wasnt "halfhearted" like you say. As we've noted elsewhere here TiT was a different approach to Tenchi than previous efforts. They did'nt schluff off or anything, it was simply went for a more slapstick approach. Just sayin :)
