The Next Tenchi Title IS — Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari

AIC has launched the official site for Seikishi, now with the full name Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. So, that makes the launch of “Saint Knight Tale in an Alternate World” official, which Kajishima-sensei had stated earlier in the year in the doujinshi Kajishima Onsen 8.08. ANN has some more details for those interested.

For me, I’m like a lot of other hardcore Tenchi fans who’ve enjoyed Kajishima-sensei’s works, flaws and all — we’ve waited a LONG time to see this latest canon Tenchi spinoff series come to pass. Granted it will be set in an alternate universe (with Tenchi’s half-brother Kenji starring) and granted, it has always sounded like another version of Dual! in many regards. That aside, I think this could be a lot of fun. I expect harem, mecha, harem, adventure, harem, and maybe even a bit more about the Choushin (there’s some speculation that Tokimi-sama may be a part of this one at some level but that’s just fan speculation at this point).

No word on an official release date and we’ll see if this new anime gets an unoffical translation.

    I hope that this latest Kajishima anime gets fansubbed. Do you think FUNimation will license it?

    I’m not too optimistic about this. I thought the Tenchi OAV3 was a pretty retarded way to end the series that had such awesome potential and I hated that moron Seina in Tenchi Lite aka GXP. Then again, I liked Dual and I’ve heard this is supposed to be similar to Dual in some ways, so I’ll give it a few episodes to woo me. I hope the main character won’t be yet another Tenchi clone. It’d be nice if we got quality fansubs for this, unlike the way it was with GXP.

    FUNimation is certainly keen on Tenchi titles and if I had to guess, I’d say that chances are good that FUNimation would try to go for it.

    I’m not too optimistic about this.

    I can understand your apprehension. Hopefully, it will be good though. ^_^
