Lum doesn't need much assistance going ballistic when everyone in Tomobiki gets an invitation to Ataru's wedding -- and she's not listed as the bride! It seems that some 11 years ago, Ataru played "Shadow Tag" with a young girl named Elle and won. Unfortunately, Elle was yet another Alien Princess; and on her planet, if a boy steps on a girl's shadow, they have to marry.
When Elle's emissary comes to make arrangements, Lum redefines the term "the atmosphere was electric," but to no avail: a force-field now protects Ataru from her high voltage love-zaps. Lum's friend Benten suggests a pre-emptive wedding, and they proceed to abduct Ataru and all of the wedding guests, and the stage is set for the shotgun wedding of all time!

During the first half of the nineteen eighties, Urusei Yatsura was the most popular anime series in Japan. The story of a beautiful alien who falls in love with a womanising teenager, it's credited with bringing the Otaku culture out from basements of Japan and into the public consciousness. Spawning a long-running TV series that ran between 1981 and 1986, as well as a series of films, the series remains popular in Japan to this very day.

Several years afterward, the series found a new audience when it was brought over to the United States during the nineties. Despite retaining its popularity in Japan, in read more

Out of 100 Nobles watching…
72 were impressed!
18 Want generally more out of the story
10 got bored of slow reused animations

Here I am reviewing the first Urusei Yatsura film in my chronological watching quest of this entire franchise. I will say outright that overall I was impressed with what was shown here given how I feel about the show in general.

I mean no disrespect to Urusei Yatsura as it is an absolute powerhouse in iconic Japanese culture. The early years of the show are from a VERY dated time however and with that and the show being a regular episodic broadcast there are certain quirks read more

Quick take: “Only You,” is one of the most important turning points in Lum and Ataru’s relationship. The story is very well written and is worth a watch. I do suggest you watch this as part of the series, not as a stand alone as it expects you to have a working knowledge of the characters and premise. If you’ve been waiting for some Lum and Ataru romance, you’ll find a bit of it here. Rewatch value: extremely high.

Score relative to the series.
My Original series score: 10

“Only You,” is a fun story that is key in the relationship between Ataru and Lum. It was well read more

NOTE: I have yet to watch Urusei Yatsura itself as series, so that may be why I feel the way I do.

I watched this a few years ago and I loved it, but upon looking back it wasn't as great as it first seemed to me personally.

The story is a solid setup and I have a soft spot for the anime art style of the 80s, as well as the music in the movie. However, I thought the characters were only really okay, but some were better than others, i.e. I really like Lum, but I dislike Ataru.

Again, I first watched the movie with zero read more
