This Special has all the characters from Urusei Yatsura back together again for a "school is an obstacle course" episode.
The jokes rely on two things:
1. putting twists on typical high school sports
2. each character's bit
The story-boarding is dynamic, animation is good and generally fluid which lends to the comedy.
It's mildly interesting to see Urusei Yatsura animated with in a modern digital style but all it really is, is a nod to the fans of the original series.
Nothing special beyond that.

Actually it might be worth seeing the opening minute for the Ranma, Inuyasha and Urusei Yatsura crossover if that is your type of thing.

Don't say you love anime if you don't love this OVA, looks alone, it's a 10, comedy, 10, nostalgia value, 10, it's better than most things you've seen for the past 10 years I bet you that, the art style, the quirks Oh boy the 7.15 score it currently has is a disgrace to this show, it is simply a 10


Omg this show needs a remaster or a reboot, it's so good, the animation, the expressions, and the humour are amazing.

None of that modern weird moe shit that's all too common in anime nowadays .

This is one of the best animes ever read more
