When aliens known as the Oni threaten to invade the Earth, they promise to leave under one condition—a randomly-chosen human must win a one-on-one game of tag against Lum, the beautiful daughter of the Oni leader. The "lucky" person selected happens to be the lustful and unlucky high schooler Ataru Moroboshi. Given 10 days to attempt to grab Lum's horns, Ataru realizes how impossible the challenge is as he is faced with Lum's extraterrestrial powers.

Motivated by a promise of marriage from his childhood friend Shinobu Miyake, Ataru manages to catch Lum off guard. He mistakenly grabs hold of her bikini top first, but he eventually achieves his true goal. Although the game is over, Lum misunderstands that she is the one whom Ataru wants to marry, and she decides to move in with him. The poor student constantly tries to shake off the clingy Lum while doing his best to reconcile with his desired fiancée. After Ataru's heroic feat results in such a disastrous outcome, it is questionable whether luck will ever be on his side.

If there is one name that's to be revered in the AniManga industry, it would be Rumiko Takahashi. The famed female mangaka that has brought us classics like Maison Ikkoku, Ranma ½ and Inuyasha to name a few, because they all got their anime adaptations to add to their name. But there is one series that stands above all: the very first work that would help elevate Takahashi to her "Hall of Fame" status that we know of today, and that is Urusei Yatsura.

A little story about this incredibly well-known series: In 1977, Rumiko Takahashi created the short story "Those Selfish Aliens", that would serve ...

Mixed Feelings
‟One day, 40 years ago, Rumiko Takashi made a manga, waifu was born and the rest is history”

Urusei Yatsura is a classic, a reference and a pioneer in the romcom genre, having this historic piece of japanese animation being remade in the beautiful craftsmanship of today's visuals, seiyuu and musics is a great honour for this anime, the idea of remaking a classic but way nicer is a nice way to make the new generation of anime fan enjoy grandpa anime peak, but does Urusei Yatsura (2022) fulfil this task and makes it an enjoyable watch ? Maybe, it's pretty complicated. It's sad to say, ...

Preliminary (3/23 eps)
When this anime started appearing I started to like it and I think this will be a good anime especially since it has quite a promising score, new characters that look cute and spoil the eye makes me sure this is going to be a good anime.

But alas it was just a figment of imagination, when I watched the first episode there's an invasion I thought it was an Alien but it wasn't from a Devil, Is it a Devil? That's what I thought, it turns out that girl is a descendant of a demon, why? I don't look at it like a demon descendant ...
