#29769 Really?
Well I guess that's because I have never seen OVA 3. Of course we are pretty much getting into
metaphysical area here with such questions. I think it's the Tenchi equivalent of the whole
Free Will vs. Predestination debate.

umm, yeah just don't if you want to keep happy memories of Tenchi alive. OVA 3 did not have Buchard as Ryoko, and it has holes in the story that are not explained unless you read the doujins. So as curious as you might be, and loyal as a fan, don't watch if you still want to be a fan. Trying not to be bad, but OVA 3 is where people lost faith in Tenchi.

#29797 Technically it might be GXP where they lost faith. OVA 3 just drove the nail straight through the skull.

Yeah, but OVA 3 was suppose to be the continuation of the awesome series from OVA 1&2. Then we saw it, and got a lot things we didn't like (hint: Noike) and it is considered canon to the story. That's GXP, however we anticipated OVA 3 for a long time, and then we get a multiverse and goddess plot device that doesn't get explained well. Which is now what we are discussing to make it make sense.

The problem with OVA 3 was Kajishima wanted to move on and so he did a shabby job of it in order to satisfy everyone as quickly as he could.

No he was just being difficult and himself, though this discussion should be moved to the OVA3/GXP thread, I think.
