Tenchi Muyo in Love is animated in the same way as the Tenchi Muyo on Earth T.V. series with the same characters and the same voice actors.

Tenchi is disappearing, literally, and the reason seems to be related to events in the past that surround his mother and father when they were in high school.

So, with the help of Washu, Tenchi and the girls go back to 1970 to make sure that things work out for Tenchi's Mom and Dad.

However, when they arrive it is discovered that an archevil dude named Kain, who hates the House of Jurai, had escaped from the Galaxy Police and has traveled back in time to do away with Achika, Tenchi's Mom. If this happens, Tenchi will never be born, and the present and future of the various girls will change.

Kain is way bad in all ways. 100 years ago, among other things, he destroyed 13 federated planets, and 275,000 spacecraft. This is what landed him in prison in the first place. Further, it was only with the combined effort of the Emperor Jurai and the Galaxy Police that Kain was ever caught.

In 1970, there is no one, not even Tenchi, who can wield enough Jurai energy. Things are not looking good for Tenchi and the girls.

The animation and music in Tenchi Muyo: The Movie is excellent and it has a decent story all the way around.
