Urusei Yatsura Season 2 first look is revealed!
Remakes are often an excellent way to bring back old classical series using modern technology that has remained popular over time. Watching your favorite anime with improved animation certainly hits the nostalgic notes.
While remakes do provide a trip back memory lane, it’s common consent within the fandom that they are poorly executed with not much regard to the original.
Wherever one might stand on the remake debate, 2023 is the year for many reboots, with series like Rurouni Kenshin, Tokyo Mew Mew New, Shaman King Season 2, and Trigun Stampede all on the menu.
The remakes mentioned above include the anime adaption of Rumiko Takahashi s’ rom-com sci-fi manga series, Urusei Yatsur.
The story follows a lecherous high schooler student, Ataru, who’s not only known for chasing after women but also has the worst luck imaginable.
Ataru also has a childhood friend named Shinobu Miyake, an old flame of his, and things seem to go pretty well for them despite Ataru s’ antics.
One day Aliens come to earth and select Ataru in a challenge wherein if he can grab the horns of his daughter, Lum, in a game of tag within ten days, then the invasion is called off, and earth can continue to live on peacefully.
Ataru obviously can’t help but accept the challenge of finding a woman in a tiger stripe bikini and boots attractive, and Shinobu rightfully calls him out on his lewdness.
Ataru may have the confidence, but it isn’t until he learns that Lum can fly is when he begins to doubt himself and that no matter what he makes, his efforts always result in failure.
Lum falls in love with Ataru and wants to live as well as marry him. But Ataru already has the prettiest girl, Miyake as his girlfriend.
On the night before the final day, Ataru and Shinobu make a promise that once he is able to grab Lum by her horns, they will get married and pursue a life of happiness with one another.
Ataru finally manages to beat Lum in this game and proclaims that he can finally get married.
However, Lum mistakenly thinks this proclamation is directed toward her, and she immediately falls in love with him. So now everyone, including her dad, thinks that Ataru and Lum are going to get married, leaving Shinobu upset at the whole thing.
Can Ataru shake off this misunderstanding, and will luck finally be on his side is the central plot of the show.
