One of the touchstones of Japanese animation in the 1980s, Urusei Yatsura is a special blend of domestic comedy, romance, science fiction, and cultural parody. When an ordinary, somewhat slow, and eternally amorous high school student named Ataru Moroboshi accidentally betrothes himself to the bikini-clad alien princess Lum, the lives of his friends and family are never to be the same, even as they continue to go to work and school. While Ataru is indifferent to Lum's affections, Lum jealously and steadfastly guards their relationship. Populated with a dynamic supporting cast that parodies the everyday citizens of Japan, this long-running comedy offers a fun, satirical look at modern living.
