Anime Studio AIC Involved in New Tenchi Muyo! Series
posted on by Egan Loo
The anime studio AIC confirmed on Monday that it is working on Ai Tenchi Muyo!, the new Tenchi Muyo! anime series. The studio's website notes the animation production is moving forward, and that the official website will open this summer.
The city of Takahashi in Okayama Prefecture announced last month that it is sponsoring the new anime. The anime will be set in Takahashi, as the city hopes fans will come on a "pilgrimage" to see the setting of the anime, and plans to sell goods and host related events. The series is slated to run for 50 five-minute episodes on Tokyo MX starting in October.
AIC produced the first Tenchi Muyo! original video anime series and the projects that followed. The franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary with this new project.
