About Urusei Yatsura:

Urusei Yatsura is a manga series written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi. It was serialized in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shōnen Sunday from September 1978 to February 1987. Its 366 individual chapters were published in 34 tankōbon volumes.

With 194 half-hour episodes, Kitty Films turned it into an anime television series that aired on Fuji TV affiliates from October 1981 to March 1986. Twelve OVAs and six theatrical films followed.

David Productions took the manga and animated it again with a new animation style. The new series is split over four parts, with the first two airing consecutively from October 2022 to March 2023, adapting certain all-star stories from the original manga. The third part, dubbed the “second season,” starts in January 2024.

Viz Media describes the overall plot of Urusei Yatsura as follows:

What would you do if a tiger skin bikini-clad alien followed you to school every day? Poor Ataru’s life has never returned to normal since volatile extraterrestrial princess Lum fell for him. Now an excruciatingly wealthy and genteel rival, Mendo, adds to Ataru’s torment. Not to mention an unending stream of extraordinary classroom visitors and educational materials including incompetent cherry blossom spirits, a legendary nightmare-eating tapir, and a fourth-dimensional camera that breaches alternate realities.
