Tenchi Ban 13.08 Afterward by Kajishima-sensei

Thanks to the gang at Useless Tenchi, we have a snapshot of the afterward written by Kajishima-sensei in Tenchi Ban 13.08.  Without further ado, here goes.

Until now, there hasn’t been a full explanation about Kenshi’s time on earth, why Kenshi’s mother Rea came to Earth, or why Neizai bears a grudge against Rea. The latter half of this will come in the winter, but I’m hoping it will at least get to when Kenshi meets Lashara.

Now then, as for my main work, I’m currently doing checks on Paradise War Vol. 2 and doing work on Tenchi Muyo GXP Vol. 10. Paradise War Vol. 2 will probably come out sometime this year, while Tenchi is scheduled for the start of next year, as per usual. I definitely don’t want to run into any weird trouble this time around…… I can’t do that anymore. Never again…… As for the anime, as is typical for an original series, getting it greenlighted is proving tough. So, unfortunately, there’s nothing really to say about it for now. I guess all we can do is hope that the sales of Paradise will increase a little more…..


Interesting. That backstory is just what I want to know when it comes to War on Geminar.

Nice to see GXP novels still on schedule and the 2nd Paradise War novel hitting the shelves before year’s end.

Adaptations of novels/manga are usually what get made into anime titles, mainly because they are less risky. One can gauge the popularity of an anime adaptation based on how popular the light novel or manga was. So although Kajishima-sensei wanted to continue to do original anime titles, this time, he’s going to have to go for the adaptation route, assuming it gets adapted at all. The fact that he got permission to do a second novel is a good sign that the novels aren’t doing badly, but as he points out, more sales will make the job of getting an anime easier.

Thanks to Clyde “Tomato” Mandelin for graciously translating this text.

    Thanks a lot for the info. I would like to hear that backstory about Rea. Glad to hear GXP 10 and Paradise War Vol.2 are still on track for release.

    Thank you Astronerdboy for what you said at Useless Tenchi, that Kaji is better off without too much contact with crazy fans. What some people were saying there really made me angry! They’re unhappy that Kaji doesn’t make himself available and then they want to spy cam him at the one place he does? Hi Mr. Kajishima, let me give you a lecture on how to get on Twitter and Facebook, how to write your stories, what to produce next and how to raise funds, meanwhile I’ll secretly take pictures of you against your wishes and Comiket policy. Man, what the heck! I’m sure he’s dying to take advice from people who can’t even respect his privacy. We better hope he doesn’t catch wind of these kinds of plans or he might stop doing Comiket at all. I’ll never be able to understand why some people are into hounding their favorite authors this way! I don’t think Kaji is an idiot so I wouldn’t presume to advise him on how to do the job he’s been successful at for more than 20 years, and spy cam stalking him is way out of line. I think we should just enjoy the world of Tenchi and Geminar and leave the author alone! Sorry about the rant but I feel strongly about this and I had to let it out somewhere.
