We’ve been going strong with the light novel club for much of 2018 (six novels completed!), so I was going to have us take a break over the holidays, but then I saw that volume two of the True Tenchi Muyo! light novels just came out, and I couldn’t help myself! I’ll be doing a little discussion on my own and post December 28th. I hope that you’ll get involved, so expect a more question-heavy and less thought-heavy post. And if you haven’t read our discussion on volume one, that can be primer as you prep for volume two, entitled, “Yosho.”
Here’s a summary of our next selection from Amazon:
Based on the hit Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki OVA series, this trilogy of canonical light novels explores the lore that shapes the past, present, and future of the sprawling Tenchi Muyo universe. In this second novel, we delve deep into the mysterious past of Tenchi’s grandfather Yosho, discovering why he left his home planet of Jurai and how he came to find himself on Earth.
Tenchi Muyo! was my”first” favorite anime series, and I’ve been enjoying a revisit of this classic. I hope you’ll come join me and read along!
