Tenchi Muyo! Mihoshi Special
Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 04/08/2003

Mihsoshi recounts one of her greatest detective cases in space, casting the Tenchi Muyo gang into her story. The notorious space pirate Ryoko has been intercepting shipments of the Ultra Energy Matter, abducting Galaxy Police Investigator Tenchi in the process! Aeka, Tenchi's self-declared and bereaved fianceé, goes to Galaxy Police detectives Mihoshi and Kiyone for help... and all hell breaks loose when Mihoshi, Kiyone, Aeka, and Sasami go off to rescue Tenchi!

If you've watched any of the Tenchi series, you'll find that Tenchi Muyo: Mihoshi Special is basically just more of the same thing. Mihoshi bungling an assignment, Kiyone getting pissed off at Mihoshi, Ryoko and Aeka fighting over Tenchi, etc. What probably distinguishes this from other Tenchi episodes is the introduction of Sasami's magical girl alter-ego, Pretty Sammy.

I can't really describe the Mihoshi Special any more without giving everything away. Since Mihoshi narrates the whole scenario on her own terms, you can actually watch this without any Tenchi background and fully understand what's going on. It's short, straightforward, and actually entertaining enough... albeit nothing really special. In fact, I feel so lukewarm about it that writing this review feels like I'm wringing my brain for something to say when there isn't any.

The art and animation are excellent, and are actually at par with the original OAV series. As usual, the English dubbing is okay -- with the exception of Ryoko's mannish portrayal and Aeka's raspy-old-hag voice. If you generally enjoy the Tenchi characters' antics, then you'll probably enjoy the Mihoshi Special. But if you're looking for something different, this isn't going to cut it. As for me, the main reason I got it is because I already have all the Tenchi OAVs and I really wanted to complete my OAV collection. Of course, this is not to say that the Mihoshi Special is bad. Like I said, it's entertaining enough... just nothing special.

The Mihoshi Special is just one episode. Pretty Sammy is actually more enjoyable than this.
