There is no "in-order" for the whole batch per se. There are several continuities that pretty much have nothing to do with each other other than using the same set of characters.
Tenchi Muyo Ryoohki OAV (eps 1-7) - released 1991-2
Tenchi Muyo Ryoohki OAV2 (eps 8-13.5) - 1993-4
Tenchi Muyo Ryoohki OAV3 (eps 14-20) - 2003-5ish
Tenchi Muyo Ryoohki GXP (26 ep TV series) - 2002 iirc
Iseki no Seikishi Monogatari aka Saint Knight's Tale (13 episode OAV) - 2009-10
Various Novels and doujins.
This is the original universe created by Masaki Kajishima (MK) and Hiroki Hayashi and continued by MK after OAV1. OAV1,2,3 follow the Masaki family. GXP is it's own show follow Seina Yamada and his group in the same universe (with some cameos from the main Tenchi cast). Iseki no Seikishi Monogatari is also MK's product, following Tenchi's little brother Kenshi around after he gets flung into another dimension.
Mihoshi Special (1 episode) - 1994
This product stands alone. After the sucessful OAV, it served as a trial run to gauge interest in both Tenchi Universe and Pretty Sammy spinoffs.
Tenchi Universe Continuity:
Tenchi Universe (26 ep TV show) - 1995
Tenchi Muyo in Love (1st Movie) - 1996
Tenchi Muyo in Love 2 : Tenchi Forever ("3rd" Movie) - 1997
Tenchi Muyo in Love 2 : Tenchi Forever - Eternal Memory (Manga accompanying 1st movie)
Tenchi Universe is a reboot, taking the OAV characters and pretty much replaying the situation with diluted characters for television. It followed by two movies by the same director (Hiroshi Negishi).
Tenchi In Tokyo Continuity:
Tenchi in Tokyo (26 ep TV Show) - 1997
Stands by itself.
Tenchi the Movie 2: Daughter of Darkness (Japanese Title:Manatsu no Eve)
Despite the purely western-attached title, it's not a sequel to the first movie but rather the film adaption of Hasegawa's 10th novel. She wrote 12 novels in all, based on the OAV1 universe but branching off from there, they were never translated or bought over here.
MAGICAL GIRL PRETTY SAMMY OAV[/SIZE] (3 episode OAV) - 1996
Stands by itself. This one is where Chihiro is Sasami's mother and Tenchi her brother.
Magical Project S (26 episode TV show) - 1997
Stands by itself. She has different parents than in the OAV (mother has pink hair) and Tenchi isn't her brother in this one.Sasami: Magical Girls Club
Sasami: Magical Girls Club - (26 episode TV show) - 2006
Yet another alternate universe. This was was supposed to have a second season of the same name but with "2" attached but I'm not sure it ever came out.
And there you have it. All the major, animated universes covered. I recommend the OAV myself, ignoring GXP. Saint Knight's Tale is a decent watch... but not necessary as it is it's own story pretty much.
Thanks for your help.
I got up to episode 13 and it was a good anime but i got bored with it and stoped but thanks for your help
No problem, which Tenchi were you watching btw?
