Tenchi Muyo! will always hold a special place in my heart because it was the very first anime I really got into, my first semester of college back in 2000. Before I even had a clue what was going on, I was head over heels for Ryoko, with her smart mouth and devil may care attitude. Tenchi/Ryoko quickly became my very first anime OTP, and the series itself is still one of my absolute favorite (Tenchi Universe for the ultimate win XD).

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this soundtrack, whether you're a fan of Tenchi/Ryoko or not. Their relationship to me is just so amazing to me, and this soundtrack has a lot of awesome songs on it because of it. It's always struck me how someone as selfish as Ryoko can be so willing to sacrifice herself for Tenchi, because she really does love him that much. ;-;

My favorite episode from the series is definitely the third Time & Space Adventures, with Ryoko's alternate universe. A lot of these songs tie into that episode, especially with her wanting so much for it to be real, and yet finally letting go of it. Anyway. ^^;;


01. MxPx - Chick Magnet
If you've seen the show, this song needs no explanation. XD Tenchi's theme.

Well he's a chick magnet if ya know what I mean
The way the girls just go to him, well ya shoulda seen

02. Seatbelts - Cosmic Dare (Pretty With A Pistol)
Yes, this is from Cowboy Bebop. Totally Ryoko's theme. XD

Can you believe me?
Still sitting pretty with a pistol in hand
Living to love you will you be my man?
If I beg, if I plead, would you please please please satisfy me?

03. Relient K - Mood Rings
I LOVE THIS SONG lolicopter XD Take it for the girls' theme or just Ryoko~

If it's drama you want, then look no further
They're like The Real World meets Boy Meets World meets Days of Our Lives
And it just kills me how they get away with murder
They'll anger you then bat their eyes
Those pretty eyes that watch you sympathize

04. the pillows - Carnival
This is a really great love song, and it just happens to tie into Ryoko's analogy from Tenchi Universe. REALLY WELL. ♥~ Pardon my lack of finding the FLCL OST3 liner notes, you'll have to settle for the obligatory translations link to pirouzu.net.

Matteta n da kimi to deau hi wo
Kashikomatta hizashi ni kogenagara
Boku dake no mado wo hiraite
Matteta n da koko de kou naru hi wo

05. The Veronicas - 4ever
"What are you doing?!" "Trying to seduce Tenchi."

I've seen it all I got nothing to prove
C'mon baby just make your move
Follow me let's leave it all behind tonight, like we just dont care

Let me take you on the ride of your life
That's what I said alright
They can say what they want to say cuz tonight I just dont even care

06. Akira Yamaoka - You're Not Here
SH/DDR love. No need for Ryoko~

You gladly gave me everything you had and more, you craved my happiness
When you make me feel joy it made you smile, but now I feel your stress
Love was never meant to be such a crazy affair, no, and who has time for tears
Never thought I'd sit around and cry for your love, till now

07. No Doubt - Don't Speak
Ever see Tenchi Forever?

You and me, we used to be together
Everyday together, always
I really feel that I'm losing my best friend
I cant believe this could be the end
It's looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real well I dont want to know

08. Beck - Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime
This one's from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Lots of one-sided Ryoko angst, what.

Change your heart
Look around you
Change your heart
It will astound you

I need your lovin' like the sunshine

09. Polaris - Everywhere
Originally a... Spike/Julia song? Who cares. Tenchi~ I dont know what this song is about. The carnival comes and goes~?

You left your glasses behind
Somebody said you were doing fine
I play a game that you're not there
But it's no good because you're everywhere

10. Evan & Jaron - Crazy For This Girl
^_^ ♥~ First heard this in a Tenchi/Ryoko video set mostly to Time & Space Adventures. It's forever my Tenchi/Ryoko song ♥ ^_^

She was the one to hold me the night the sky fell down
And what was I thinking when the world didnt end
Why didnt I know what I know now

Would you look at her? She looks at me
She's got me thinking about her constantly
But she dont know how I feel
And when she carries on without a doubt
I wonder if she'll figure out
I'm crazy for this girl

11. Train - Drops of Jupiter
This song will always have ties to Faye Valentine for me, but it really fits the T&SA... How Ryoko goes off alone one last time to say goodbye to the dream world, and finally comes back, ready to go, reaching for Tenchi's hand... ;-; Heh.

Well tell me
Did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the milky way to see the lights all faded
and that heaven is overrated?
Tell me
Did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar
and did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there?

12. Avril Lavigne - Fall to Pieces
...Ryoko with Tenchi. 'Nuff said. She loves him, what.

If I had my way, I'd never get over you
Today's the day I prayed that we'd make it through
Make it through the fall, make it through it all

And I dont want to fall to pieces, I just want to sit and stare at you
I dont wanna talk about it
And I dont want a conversation, I just want to cry in front of you
I dont wanna talk about it
Cuz I'm in love with you

13. Mike Doughty - I Hear the Bells
This song... I guess it makes me think of Christmas in Tenchi-land~ More of a mood than anything.

I hear the bells down in the canyons
It's snow in New York, some blue December
I'm gone to the moon about you going
I'm calling to you throughout the world and well
I can hear the bells are ringing joyful and triumphant and

14. Foo Fighters - Everlong
Because this is like the best love song ever. Okay, maybe not ever, but what.

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever be this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

It's 100000 times better than the real video, too. YURI IS *NOT* A CHICK MAGNET.

It makes me sad that the Tenchi fandom has all but died. But it's nice to know there are still some of us who remember it.

Anyway, great song choices here. Of course anything with Ryoko and/or Everlong is an automatic win. I downloaded this a few months back, and felt bad for not doing my civic duty as a Tenchi/Ryoko fan and showering you with appreciation. So um... *showers you with appreciation* There. ^^;

It is! It may seem to take the backburner to newer shows that come along, but Tenchi Muyo will always be my first love ♥~

A few years too late to comment, but this is a great soundtrack. :D Another song that I think fits these two really well is "My Beloved Monster" (Here are the lyrics http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/shrek/mybelovedmonster.htm ) just because Ryoko is always called a monster, and the second verse sounds a LOT like her behavior.
