The manga series appeared in Weekly Shonen Sunday, published by Shogakukan, from 1978 until 1987.

A portion of the series was previously published in English by Viz Media in the 1990s under the title The Return of Lum.

In spring 2019, Viz Media started publishing the manga in 2-in-1 omnibus editions along with new translations. Viz describes the series as:

Revisit the acclaimed romantic comedy about an unlucky human boy who meets a beautiful space alien princess in this large trim size edition with all-new translations and new cover designs.

In the series, Ataru Moroboshi’s supernatural encounters with the feminine kind all start when he’s chosen to play tag with an alien princess named Lum who invades the earth on her UFO.

Ataru has ten days to touch Lum’s horns or aliens will take over the earth!

As it turns out, the game of tag is only the beginning of Ataru’s troubles, as he continues to attract strange encounters with otherworldly beings like beautiful snow spirit Oyuki and the sexy crow goblin Princess Kurama!
