Ross founded the UK Anime Network back in 1995, and following Andy Hanley's retirement has returned to the post of Editor-in-Chief in 2017. What an old man!


Seven Seas have announced that Masaki Kajishima and Yousuke Kuroda's True Tenchi Muyo series of Light Novels have been translated and will be released on June 19th, 2018.

Seven Seas offers the following synopsis for their upcoming release:

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 the first novel, delve deep into the backstory of Emperor Azusa (Ayeka and Sasami's father) while learning what happened immediately following the conclusion of the second OVA series. In the second novel, witness the mysterious past of Tenchi's grandfather Yosho, and how he came to find himself on Earth in the aftermath of Ryoko's attack on Jurai. And in the third and final novel, learn the origin of the super genius Washu and the previously untold life she led as a goddess over 20,000 years before the events of the Tenchi Muyo!: Ryo-Ohki series!

With the OVA returning with a fourth run Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Ohki Dai-yon-ki last year, the release of the light novels is a timely entry to expand on the franchise history and core characters.
