Tenchi Muyo! is a Japanese anime, light novel and manga series with a passionate fan base. I had the good fortune to voice the character of Ryoko in the English dub cast.
It was 1995 when we started dubbing Tenchi episodes into English. I loved my character. Who wouldn’t want to play a sexy space pirate? I got to run the gamut of emotions in every episode. I also got to walk through walls and fly.
I had no idea that nearly twenty years later I’d still be receiving regular fan mail and social media contact from Tenchi fans. Something about the show really got to people. I consider myself lucky to have been a part of it. Tenchi fans are the best!
