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.

Preliminary (3/23 eps)
First of all, I'm writing this review based on having seen 3 episodes of the original series and the exact same amount for the 2022 reboot. I'm definitely not qualified to write a review when it comes to a more comparative one or otherwise on this particular series. Which is exactly why I'm writing this.

A problem with this series is that it's unneeded. The original, from what I've seen, was fine. What's the point in remaking a series, only to do so little new with it? They both begin in similar fashion, but quickly diverge into different episodic content. It's not a 1:1 remake, ...

Preliminary (4/23 eps)
Since this will be my first time writing a preliminary review, it will be quite brief and will make changes once completed.

I watched episode 1 out of whim and gave me massive Doraemon vibes (though it's vastly different from that), so I kept on watching it and so far, it's pretty good.

The charm is in how stupid it is. This is about a lot of idiots and hilarious concepts mixed together, and I think it works just great. I don't really expect or even hope for this to be anything more than what it sets out to be, so if the story ever gets better, ...

Preliminary (5/23 eps)
This show is just fun its not very deep or plot driven from what I've seen so far its more just comedic situations with the cast. It doesn't have some overarching plot or goal but more of a continuation of the MCs life after each comedic situation. It reminds me a lot of American cartoons where you have a given amount of characters and you put them into different situations each ep. I do not think this show is for everybody some people might find the show quite dated in its comedy or the characters can be seen as extremely cliché. However to me the ...
