Ai Tenchi Muyo! (愛・天地無用！) was created to commemorate the franchise's 20th anniversary, and to promote tourism for the city of Takahashi, Okayama.
The TV series began to air October 6th 2014, and consisted of 50 original five-minute episodes, as well as 10 recap episodes.
The series was directed by Tenchi Universe director Hiroshi Negishi, and the characters were designed by Suzuhito Yasuda.
In 2018, FUNimation licensed the series for English release. Similar to the Japanese release some of the original voice actors returned including Ryoko's original English voice actress from the Pioneer/Geneon releases Petrea Burchard. The exceptions are Jennifer Darling and K.T. Vogt who voiced Ayeka and Washu in most of the previous releases excluding Tenchi Muyo! GXP. They were replaced by Cherami Leigh (who previously voiced War on Geminar's Wahanly Shume) and Karen Strassman respectively. It is currently set for release on July 10, 2018.
