Synopsis

Not all is normal in Tomobiki, even by its standards. The students have been preparing feverishly for the first day of the student fair, which is scheduled to go on the next day. However, problems arise when some begin to notice that the next day simply will not come. As the students begin to try to find the reason for the problem, their beliefs about reality and the world of dreams are challenged.

Urusei Yatsura is one of my favorite anime series for many reasons, and one of those reasons is the wacky brand of comedy that comes with it. That said, Beautiful Dreamer is completely different from any other work related to this series. The comedy is still there, but it's greatly toned down and replaced with more of a serious story as the cast of characters find bizarre things happening to the world around them.

"Things are a mess for Yusojusunku, time and space are objective things. Fact is, time is simply a creation of your human consciousness.

Mixed Feelings
This is one of Mamoru Oshii's earliest directed movies, and like many things he's touched it has a cult following that simply goes nuts for it. What makes Urusei Yatsura Movie 2: Beautiful Dreamer an outlier, however, is that it's created using a previously existing setting and cast of characters that weren't originally created by Oshii. The legendary Rumiko Takahashi takes credit for the original concept here, about a high school boy who accidentally convinces an alien girl named Lum that they're now married. Thus, hijinks ensue. The original series has had an incredible impact on Japanese culture, but is relatively esoteric for a Takahashi ...
