The official website for the fifth season of the Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Ohki (OVA) series recently revealed over the weekend some new stuff to look out for, particularly the staff, cast and a new key visual.
Here’s the complete list of cast members:
- Masami Kikuchi as Tenchi Masaki
- Ai Orikasa as Ryōko
- Haruhi Nanao as Aeka Masaki Jurai
- Chisa Yokoyama as Sasami Masaki Jurai
- Michie Tomizawa as Mihoshi Kuramitsui
- Yūko Kobayashi as Washū Hakubi
- Naomi Shindoh as Noike Kamiki Jurai
- Etsuko Kozakura as Ryo-Ohki
- Yukiko Morishita as Kenshi Masaki
- Katsuyuki Konishi as Nobuyuki Masaki
- Rio Natsuki as Reia Masaki
- Emi Shinohara as Tennyo Masaki
- Yumi Touma as Tokimi
- Kumi Sakuma as Kiriko Masaki
- Shiho Kawaragi as Karen
This time, Keitaro Motonaga will helm the project. While Masaki Kajishima is credited as the original creator, original character designer, as well as the chief director.
Its good to know that some of the original seiyuus are still around, most notably Tenchi Masaki. As happy as I am to know that the series is still going strong (it really tugs a nostalgic string from my childhood). Looking at the new art, this is definitely not the Tenchi Muyo that I remember. But still, I want to check this out and give it a shot.
No official release date yet as of this post.
