On Thursday, the official website for the Urusei Yatsura anime revealed the fifth PV for the show’s second half, which features the opening “Lock On feat. HashiMelo, Megurimeguru” by MAISONdes and the ending theme song “Raizakura feat. 9Lana, SAKURAmoti” by MAISONdes as well.
The second half of the anime will air for two consecutive cours from January 11.
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!
