posted on by Karen Ressler
Character designer Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!!, Yozakura Quartet) will design the characters for the new Tenchi Muyo! series, Ai: Tenchi Muyo!. Hiroshi Negishi (Tenchi Universe, Saber Marionette J) is returning to the franchise to direct and Masaki Kajishima is credited as the original creator.
The characters include:
Tenchi Masaki, the school's new student teacher. He's genetically predisposed to getting into trouble.
Momo Kawanaga, the school's student council president. She is straight-forward and honest and has a strong sense of justice.
Kō Oninoshiro, the bodyguard of the school science club. She's taciturn, brave, and confident. She has superhuman strength like an ogre.
The city of Takahashi in Okayama Prefecture announced in May 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.
The anime studio AIC is producing the series. AIC previously 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.
