Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar is simple average, based on the general perspective. Though it has several decent entertainment, it fails to fully grasp the potential of its characters or concept through the equivalent of 26 normal-length episodes, so whether it would be worth your time or not, it can be tricky to say. After using many new ideas along with characters introduced in the first episode the series stagnates for an longer period of time, remaining in the same setting and repeating a similar gags again and again.
Apart from on his first mission, Kenshi never fails at anything ever and while that does provide some jokes as each new character is dumbfounded by his skills, it also means that every battle in which he’s involved comes with its outcome predetermined and that gets slightly boring over time.

Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar Anime
Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar, or also known as Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari in Japan is the Japanese action, mecha, and harem OVA anime series produced by AIC Spirits and BeSTACK studio and directed by Masaki Kajishima and Koji Yoshikawa. The anime acts as spin-off of the Tenchi Muyo series and was aired on Animax starting from March 20, 2009 to March 19, 2010.
Fujimi Shobo published the light novel adaptation written by Atsushi Wada and illustrated Katsumi Enami under their Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint on August 20, 2009. A manga adaptation illustrated by Bau was serialized in Comic Rex and published by Ichijinsha into two volumes on June 9, 2010.
Masaki Kenshi is a 15-year-old young man that has unwillingly traveled from his home on earth to the alternate world called Geminar. On that new world, the countries wage wars using Sacred Mechanoids, humanoid exoskeletal weapons that were formerly discovered within ancient ruins and developed over decades. After being fooled by a mysterious organization into participating in an attempt to assassinate Lashara Earth XXVIII, the young ruler of the Shtrayu Empire, he ends up captured after he makes a decision not to kill her. Deducing enough about Kenshi to interest her and since his skills make him an enormously valuable asset, Lashara choose to take Kenshi under her protection.
Disguised as her attendant, Kenshi travels with her and her bodyguard Chiaia Flann to the Holy Land, a virtually impregnable fortress that serves as a academy to teach Sacred Mechanoid pilots, most of the whom are female. Along with his kindness, tenacity, and abilities that differ from carpentry and cooking to advanced survival skills, Kenshi ultimately becomes a celebrity in the academy, becoming the object of affection of numerous female students and making some of the male students jealous. However, a similar organization who fooled Kenshi is secretly working inside and against academy, and a worldwide conflict is about to begin.
The story itself is really simple and is about a boy who is summoned to an alternate world and try to find his way back home to Japan. Even though there’s an underlining plot of conspiracy and betrayal within this series, don’t be surprised if the imbalance throws you off from an episodes tense with action and drama to than aimlessly switch to fan-service, the focus is seriously set on its harem genre and all part of the laughs.
I feel that the art style is very well done and truly brought out the attractive facets of nature and the wild. Although no some sort of Miyazaki or Shinkai movies artwork, Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar is pretty much animated for its time.
Being of the harem genre, the female characters are really diverse in terms of personality, trait and looks. Kenshi is also one other reason why I enjoyed this series, I love to seeing Kenshi’s confident and bright character.
The opening and ending theme for this series isn’t anything too special or wonderful, both pieces of music meet the series and is pleasant to listen to. However they aren’t something people would go crazy about. While the seiyuu for this series is well done. All the seiyuu bring their characters to life and carried the characters’ feeling across to the audiences.
Just like I mentioned above, Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar is really entertaining for me to watch and I never seemed like skipping ahead in any of the episodes. It is a good series for me and I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to watch this anime.
