#10939 Ever seen this?

I thought it'd be cool to see these one-minute lores used for other means of media, like anime. So I did this quick draft of Tenchi Muyo Lore in a minute.

Tenchi Muyo Lore- 1st and 2nd draft
*god like choir*IN THE BEGINNING…
There were three goddesses, or Choushin, named Tsunami, Washu and Tokimi. After they created the universe, the Choushin made a little wager to see who could make the most powerful human being. While Tokimi was lounging around her custom Super Mario Galaxy level hoping for someone to die in front of her so she could bring him to life, Washu sacrificed her immortal form and raised as a demi-god child to a group of mages before attending the Jurian galaxy academy and meeting a new friend named Akara Naja, who agreed to help her create an meta human child using Washu’s egg cells and a jelly-like creature known as the Masu. But Dr. Clay, a rival in the academy, tried to troll the in two and in the process Akara became Kagato, sealed Washu in crystal and released the child called Ryoko as a space pirate.
Meanwhile, Tsunami transformed into a giant tree to be worshipped by the Juraians. Knowing the tree had mystical powers, they began reproducing it and using its children tress as a power source for their ships. Fast forward a couple a thousand years, and we see an adult Yosho Masaki Jurai, who was engaged to her younger sister Ayeka, chasing Ryoko after she attacked the Juraian royal palace. Eventually both Yosh and Ryoko crash landed onto Earth. With Ryoko left unconscious and her power drained, Yosho figured the best thing to do is dump her in a cave hoping no-one will wake up.
That is until 700 years later when his only grandson, Tenchi Masaki enters the cave and wakes Ryoko up (so much for that). After Blowing up an entire school in hopes of killing him, Ryoko eventually develops a crush on our *cough* hero, but then Ayeka shows up finds out that Tenchi is Yoshso’s Grandson and develops a crush herself. The rest of the show pretty much has more girls falling in love with the guy.
Of course half of this lore is hard to find and understand because nobody bothers to translate the novels which answers the questions the show doesn’t bother to answer, but hey, it’s a harem show and everyone has a crush on Tenchi and that’s all that matters.
Have Fun!


Let me know what you think, if I need to add or subtract anything I left.

#10962 LOL Very well done, Greg! I can totally hear TotalBiscuit reading this! :cool:

In actuality, I find that whenever LORE does a video for a series/video game, summarizing something epic in such a short time span really is taking a jab at that particular series (at least it feels that way to me, I mean if you're a hardcore fan of whatever it is they're "LORE-ing" you're left with a feeling of "well...you just summarized years of my life in under two minutes! Thanks alot" lol) yet therein of course lies the humor, hopefully it's meant for people that have already seen/played 'x', not someone googling some show they heard about & wanting to try to devour the essence of the program without digesting or savoring it (food analogies...I must be hungry).

tl;dr: they're like 'super spoilers' if viewed by someone unfamiliar with the subject matter.

But just thinking it over more as I write, it's the viewer's choice to have something spoiled for them. I mean, one could find a simplified plot for anything online, minus the humor and wit of LORE.

FINAL VERDICT: If this were to be done, I think you hit the nail on the head Greg! :lol:

#11012 Not that you have to, but if you have a to-do list for Tenchi fandom, due to time table, may I suggest looking at this first?

#11048 I see the plans for ohayocon.
I'm wondering if anyone was eager to do the audio for this lore (just read through the script as fast as you can) they have my permission to do so. If not, I'm completely fine with that.

#11050 ^I'd do it! (if no one else wants to) sounds fun! :D

Though, idk it might sound 'cooler' with a British accent (going with the Total Biscuit vibe) ooh, maybe I'll try a British accent! jk...or am I?????

Do you want to be the one to actually do the video editing the, Greg? (it's your project, after all)

Also, silly question, but can (for lack of better word) a "lore" video done by others other than user 'LORE' ? Like, is that youtube kosher?

#11139 I can do the design and animation if that's what you're thinking.
I'd do the designs on pixlr, and find a free audio/video editing program to finalize it all in
