Ai Tenchi Muyo! is a short-form production, which originally aired during the Fall 2014 broadcast season. The 60-episode series was directed by Hiroshi Negishi (Tenchi Universe, K.O. Beast) at AIC PLUS+, with the team of Masami Inomata (Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar, Landreaall) and Suzuhito Yasuda (Gundam Build Fighters, Gundam Build Fighters Try) providing character designs. The team of Hiroshi Negishi and Junpei Yoshihara took charge of series composition.
Funimation describes the show as:
Thanks to Washu, the universe has been thrown into chaos and it’s up to Tenchi to clean up the mess. But to do so he’s going undercover as a teacher—at an all-girl’s school! What awaits him beyond the attention of cute girls at this not-so-ordinary school? And will he be able to balance timelines and trouble that come with this latest adventure?
