Today the animation studio AIC launched a teaser website for “Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari” (or Saint Knight Story in an Alternate World), which is a spin-off project from the highly successful Tenchi Muyo franchise. This spin-off has been conceptualised well over seven years ago, and back then the creator, Masaki Kajishima stated that the main chracter would be a half-brother of Tenchi Maskai. According to Masaki, this half brother character has existed since the original OAVs, but had to be put on hold owing to other commitments.

In 2001, Masaki described Seikishi as “a robot story set in an alternaitve universe, like The Vision of Escalfowne, but there aren’t many fighting scenes in my anime and I still want to highlight the aspects of life… In their world, a “magic power reactor” moves the roots and only humans with sepcial popers can operate them.”

Tenchi Muyo, Tenchi Muyo Ryooh-Ki and Tenchi Muyo GXP are all available for general purcahse in the United States, and the former two are available to purchase in the UK. GXP is no longer in print after the Tenchi Muyo publisher changed from MVM to Revalation Films.
