Funimation describes the story:
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? Join the harem and the fun in this series of shorts!
In addition to its new cast of characters, Ai Tenchi Muyo also featured returning characters such as Ryoko and Ayeka.
The original anime series premiered in October 2014 and ran for 60 five-minute episodes. Character designer Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!!, Yozakura Quartet) designed the characters for the anime, and Hiroshi Negishi (Tenchi Universe, Saber Marionette J) returned to the franchise to direct at AIC.
