Urusei Yatsura
characters An alien race known as the Oni
Oni
arrive on Earth
Earth
to invade the planet. Instead of taking over the planet by force, the Oni
Oni
give humans a chance to fight for the rights to the planet by taking part in a competition. The competition is a variant of the game of tag (literally "the game of the Oni" in Japanese), in which the human player must touch the horns on the head of the Oni
Oni
player within one week. The computer-selected human player is Ataru Moroboshi, a lecherous, unlucky and stupid high school student from the Japanese city of Tomobiki, and the Oni
Oni
player is Princess Lum, daughter of the leader of the Invasion force. Despite his initial reluctance to take part in the competition, Ataru becomes interested in the game when he meets Lum. When the competition begins, Lum surprises everyone by flying away and Ataru finds himself unable to catch her. Before the last day of the competition, Ataru's girlfriend Shinobu Miyake encourages Ataru by pledging to marry him if he wins. On the final day of the competition, Ataru wins the game by stealing Lum's bikini top, which prevents her from protecting her horns in favor of protecting her modesty. In celebrating his victory, Ataru expresses his joy at being able to get married; however, Lum misinterprets this as a proposal from Ataru and accepts on live television. Despite the misunderstanding, Lum falls in love with Ataru and moves into his house. Despite Ataru's lack of interest in Lum and attempts to rekindle his relationship with Shinobu, Lum frequently interferes and Shinobu loses interest in Ataru. Still, Ataru's flirtatious nature persists despite Lum's attention. Lum attempts to stop him from flirting, which results in Ataru receiving powerful electric shock attacks from Lum as punishment. Two characteristics of Ataru are particularly strong: his pervertedness and his bad luck that draws to him all weirdos of the planet, the spirit world and even galaxy. Later Lum begins attending the same school as Ataru despite his objections. Lum develops a fan base of admirers among the boys of the school, including Shutaro Mendou, the rich and handsome heir to a large corporation that all the girls from Tomobiki have a crush on. Despite their romantic interest, none of Lum's admirers will risk upsetting Lum by trying to force her and Ataru apart, although this doesn't stop them from trying to get Ataru punished due to his bad behavior, and interfering every time they get close to him. Production[edit] In 1977, Rumiko Takahashi created the short story Those Selfish Aliens that was nominated for Shogakukan's Best New Comic Artist award. This would serve as the basis for creating Urusei Yatsura
Urusei Yatsura
which was first published a year later when Takahashi was 21 years old. The series was her first major work, having previously only published short stories and is a combination of romantic comedy, science fiction, suburban life, and Japanese folktales.[1][2] The title of the series roughly translates to "Those Obnoxious Aliens". The title is written using specific kanji instead of hiragana to create a Japanese pun.[3] The series first appeared in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday
Weekly Shonen Sunday
in September 1978.[4] At the start of the series it was only scheduled to run for 5 chapters. Ataru was the central character and each chapter would feature a different strange character. The character of Lum was only going to appear for the first chapter and was not in the second chapter, however Takahashi decided to re-include her in the third chapter.[5] The series was not an instant success and chapters were initially published sporadically. Between May and September 1978 she simultaneously worked on a series called Dust Spot, however the increasing popularity of Urusei Yatsura
Urusei Yatsura
caused her to focus on Urusei and the series became a regular serialization from the middle of 1979.[4] Takahashi said that she had been dreaming about the overall universe of Urusei Yatsura
Urusei Yatsura
since she was very young. She said that the series "really includes everything I ever wanted to do. I love science fiction because sci-fi has tremendous flexibility. I adopted the science fiction-style for the series because then I could write any way I wanted to".[1] She wanted the reader to be completely surprised by the next panel and used slapstick comedy to create a reaction in the reader.[4] When Takahashi ran out of ideas she would create new characters.[6] Takahashi shared a small 150 square feet apartment with her assistants, and slept in a closet due to a lack of space. While writing Urusei Yatsura
Urusei Yatsura
she also began work on Maison Ikkoku
Maison Ikkoku
and used this experience as well as her university experience as the basis for the setting of that series.[4] Character names often carry extra meanings used to describe a characters personality or other traits. For example, the name Ataru Moroboshi refers to being hit by a star, a reference to the aliens and other people who gather around him. The name Shinobu suggests a patient character, however this in contrast to the character's actual personality.[3] In a similar way, the setting for the series is "Tomobiki", which means "friend taking". Tomobiki is also the name of a superstitious day in the old Japanese calendar system considered to have "no winners or losers" and occurred on every sixth day. Funerals rarely took place on this day as it was believed more deaths would soon follow.[3][7][8] Lum was named after Agnes Lum, a bikini model during the 1970s.[9][10] Lum's use of the English word "Darling" in reference to Ataru was to emphasize her status as a foreigner, as well as a play on the name Darrin, the husband figure from Bewitched.[11] In 1994, Takahashi stated that she will not produce any more content for the series.[12] The characters of Megane, Perm, Kakugari and Chibi are recurring characters throughout the anime adaptation, however in the manga they are nameless fans of Lum who are never seen after Mendou is introduced.[13] In contrast the character Kosuke Shirai plays a large role in the manga, but does not appear in the anime series. His role is often performed by Perm.[14] The second half of the anime is closer to the manga than the first half.[13] Media[edit] Manga[edit] Main article: List of Urusei Yatsura

chapters The series began sporadic serialization in September 1978 in that year’s 39th issue of the manga anthology Weekly Shōnen Sunday
Weekly Shōnen Sunday
until the middle of 1979 when it became a regular serialisation.[4][15] It ended in 1987's eighth issue after publishing 374 chapters and almost 6000 pages.[13][16][17] A total of 34 individual volumes with 11 chapters each were released in tankōbon format between 1980 and March 1987.[17][18][19] After the tenth anniversary of start of the series, it was printed in 15 "wideban" editions between July 1989 and August 1990.[20][21] Each volume contained around 25 chapters, and were printed on higher quality paper, with new inserts.[17] A bunkoban edition of the series was released over 17 volumes between August 1998 and December 1999. Each volume contains forewords by other manga creators discussing the influence the series had on them.[17][22][23] A "My First Big" edition was printed between July 2000 and September 2004. This edition was similar to the tankōbon but used low quality paper and were sold at a low price.[17][24][25] A shinsoban edition over 34 volumes was released between November 17, 2006 and March 18, 2008. This edition was also similar to the tankōbon but used new cover artwork and included a section that displayed artwork from current manga artists.[17][26][27] The manga has sold over 26 million copies in Japan.[28] After requests from fans, Viz Media

licensed the series for release in English across North America
North America
under the title of Lum * Urusei Yatsura.[29] Despite a strong start, the series was dropped after 8 issues. The series was then reintroduced in the monthly Viz publication Animerica

and because of the long gap the series was retitled The Return of Lum.[17] To start chapters were published monthly in Animerica, however due to reader feedback and an increased popularity of the series it was decided to release it as an individual monthly publication.[30] The English release finished in 1998 and is now out of print. The first 11 volumes of the Japanese release were covered, but several chapters were excluded and a total 9 English volumes of the series were released.[13][17] Anime[edit] Main article: List of Urusei Yatsura

Urusei Yatsura
fans were high school and university students. The series' peak readership figures were with 15-year-olds, but the distribution of readers was skewed towards older males. She said that this was "very easy" for her since the ages of the readers were similar to her own age; Takahashi expressed happiness that people from her generation enjoy the series. Takahashi added that she felt disappointment that Urusei Yatsura
Urusei Yatsura
did not gain much interest from children, believing that the series may have been too difficult for children. She believed that "manga belongs fundamentally to children, and maybe Urusei Yatsura
Urusei Yatsura
just didn't have what it took to entertain them".[1] The manga received the Shogakukan
Shogakukan
Manga
Manga
Award in 1980.[82] In Manga: The Complete Guide, Jason Thompson referred to the original manga as "A slapstick combination of sci-fi, fairy-tale and ghost-story elements with plenty of cute girls". He also notes that Lum is "the original otaku dream girl". He awarded the series four stars out of four.[83] Christina Carpenter of THEM Anime
Anime
praises the characters and humor and notes the influence the series had on other series over the years. Carpenter summarises the series as "Original and unapologetically Japanese classic that earns every star we can give" and awarded the series five stars out of five.[84] In an interview with Ex.org, Fred Schodt expressed a surprise at the popularity of the English release of the manga as he believed the cultural differences would be a problem.[85] In 1982, the anime series is ranked sixth in Animage's the "Anime Grand Prix".[86] The following year, the show climbed to fourth place.[87] In 1984, the OVA Urusei Yatsura: Only You took fifth and the anime took sixth.[88] While the series did not appear in 1985, the movie Beautiful Dreamer did. In 1986, the show reappeared in sixth place and third OVA took third place.[89] In 1987, the series went down to eighth place.[90] The series received two awards from the magazine Animage
Animage
as part of their reader-voted Anime
Anime
Grand Prix. In 1982, the theme song "Lum no Love Song" was voted best anime song. In 1983, the sixty-seventh episode was voted best episode.[91][92] In The Anime
Anime
Encyclopedia: A Guide to Japanese Animation Since 1917, Jonathan Clements
Jonathan Clements
and Helen McCarthy viewed the series as "a Japanese Simpsons for its usage of domestic humor and make note of AnimEigo's attention to providing notes for those unfamiliar with Japanese culture. They summarise the series as "a delight from beginning to end" and that the series "absolutely deserves its fan favorite status".[2] In reviewing AnimEigo
AnimEigo
home video releases, Peter Nichols of The New York Times
The New York Times
thought that the series was "relatively restrained" compared to AnimEigo's other releases.[93] In a feature of the series in Anime
Anime
Invasion McCarthy recommends the series as being "the first, the freshest and the funniest" of Takahashi's works and also for the large cast, stories and as a cultural and historical resource.[94] Writing in Anime
Anime
from Akira to Princess Mononoke: Experiencing Contemporary Japanese Animation, Susan J. Napier dedicates several pages to discussion of the series, regarding it as "a pioneering work in the magical girlfriend genre". Napier contrasts the series to Western shows such as Bewitched
Bewitched
and I Dream of Jeannie, highlighting their harmonious resolution to the chaos in comparison to Urusei Yatsura's "out of control" ending to each episode. Napier later compares the series to other magical girlfriend series such as Ah! My Goddess and Video Girl Ai.[95] Fred Patten
Fred Patten
writing in Watching Anime, Reading Manga: 25 Years of Essays and Reviews credits the series with being the first program to inspire translations from fans.[96] Patten later credits the series for introducing the phenomenon of using anime to advertise pop songs, claiming it was a deliberate decision by Kitty Films.[97] Writing further about the series for website Cartoon Research, Patten notes that the series was aimed at adults who could buy their own merchandise, as opposed to being subsidized by toy sales like many other shows at the time.[32] Like Napier, Patten compares the series to Bewitched, but also to Sabrina the Teenage Witch.[98][99] Influence and legacy[edit] The series has been credited by Jonathan Clements

Urusei Yatsura
and Tomobiki can be seen on a graphical display.[103][104] Use of Japanese culture[edit] The series is considered an excellent source for references to Japanese culture and mythology.[105] The series makes heavy use of Japanese literature, folklore, history and pop culture. Examples of literature and folklore include The Tale of Genji
The Tale of Genji
and Urashima Tarō.[106] Many of the characters in the series are derived from mythological creatures. In some cases the creatures themselves appeared, and in other cases a character was designed to incorporate the characteristics of a mythological creature.[107] Stories and situations made use of these mythological elements to create jokes and draw comparisons with the original mythology. For example, the Oni choose tag to decide their contest with Earth
Earth
because the Japanese word for Tag, Onigokko, means "game of the Oni". When Ataru grabs Lum's horns during their contest and she misunderstands his statement that he can get married, it is a reference to the myth that grabbing the horns of an Oni
Oni
will make your dream come true.[3] See also[edit]
