I’ve written most of what I wanted to say on my main anime/manga blog, but I did want to mention here that Seven Seas has licensed the three Shin Tenchi Muyo! novels and will be calling the novels the True Tenchi Muyo! series. I gotta tell ya, just knowing that I will actually own English copies of the novels is just so very exciting.
This has also given me an opportunity to be a part of the official adaptation of the novels, which is scary as all get out. But hopefully, the end product will be one fans love and that sales of the novels will be through the roof (which I’d hope for, even if I wasn’t attached to the project).
