All of the main voice cast are set to return
The official website for the upcoming fifth season of the Tenchi Muyo! Ryo Ohki OVA series has announced its main staff including director Keitaro Motonaga (Date A Live, Digimon Adventure tri.) and character designer/chief animation director Sayuri Sakimoto (Black Clover chief animation director).
This is the first time for Motonaga to work on the Tenchi anime franchise. He says, "When I was working on another title at AIC while ago, Tenchi was produced in the next room. I remember that I was looking sideways at it while thinking it looked so interesting. Well, I can't believe that I am serving as director! All the staff are doing their best to make the fifth season as good as all of the previous seasons. Please be excited about it."
元永慶太郎「嘗てAICで別作品の演出をしている時、横で制作されている作品が天地無用でした。横目で見ながら面白ろそうだなぁーと、思いつつ眺めていたのを思い出します。まさか、自分が監督する事になるとは！全期に負けない面白い天地無用を目指しスタッフ一同がんばります。ご期待下さい」#天地無用— 天地無用！魎皇鬼 五期（と四期）公式 (@tenchi4th) August 9, 2019
