Something really bugs me about this anime. The main characters motivation just seems bad because while he has Lum and his childhood friend/girlfriend he still goes out of his way to flirt with other girls; meanwhile he could very easily just bang Lum or other girl. I don't get it.

Girls make him happy. He can't consummate his relationship with Lum.

Why settle for just one when you should strive for all the girls?

Are you a basement dweller? Are you out of touch with reality by any chance? Or lacking in a social life?

Committing to marriage can be a huge problem for some people, particularly people who are young.

I married young actually, met at 15, married at 21, now we're both 23.
>>
>>121972418
Even so, life does go out of its way to shit on Ataru. So something terrible probably would have happened anyway.

It's not like there aren't plenty of other people out for his blood.
>>
>>121972444
>met at 15, married at 21, now we're both 23.
I don't know I can't think in the idea of getting married so soon, I like to be single, to live alone and go to college. For me getting married was when you're getting to an age when you're getting kind of old and you already know who is gonna be the person you're going to spend the rest of your life. At least ataru in the OVA of Inaba doesn't get married until he is like 30 years olds.
Going back to your question, even when Ataru loves going out with women, he is not an asshole, he knows that if he bangs Lum he got to get married with her, or banging some other girl would be a horrible thing he could do to Lum. He is just a 17 years old teenager, and late 18 years old young adult, he still want to be single.
>>
>>121972967
years old*
>>
>>121972259
Getting too close to Lum means he can't get it with other women, so he's just making a sacrifice by pretending to be cold to Lum when he really loves her most of all.
>>
>>121972967
That being said though when I was 17 I was pretty obsessed with sex, and not so much kissing.
>>
>>121972326
Genes.
>>
>>121973098
Everybody is obsessed with sex, Ataru wasn't the exception, he wanted to bang Kurama and other girls, but later he doesn't do it for respect to Lum. He still goes in dates or kiss other girls tho.
>>
>>121972326
Because sticking to one woman for the rest of his life is unimaginable. Even if Lum and Shinobu are both hot.
>>
>>121972259
He loves Lum, but he also loves all the other girls.
He can't fuck Lum and keep chasing after other girls because that's going too far, and he's as good as dead if he does.
>>
>>121973251
When has Ataru ever kissed another girl?
>>
dumb slut
>>
>>121973331
Ran, (two times)Ryunnosuke, Sakura, Lum, Shinobu.
He is alpha as fuck.
>>
>>121973331
Kurama at least. I'm 100% he's kissed others, but it's been years since I watched.
Oh yeah, Ran as well.

Oyuki was about to have sex with him, and Benten was interested in him too. He actually wasn't that unlucky with girls before the series took that complete change in direction regarding his relationships and lecherousness.
>>
>>121973421
I don't remember him ever getting lucky with anyone other than Lum.

Do you remember which episodes?
>>
What part in the series would you guys consider the show getting good?
>>
>>121973736
After they drop the 2 stories per episode format, so around 22.

Alternatively ep 12 or whatever was the christmas episode.
>>
>>121973736
Around 20 episodes in, when the ED changes.
>>
I think that was 9 or 10, when he ends holding her hand. I'm re-watching the series, I'm on 15 currently
>>
>>121973802
Definitely after the Christmas episode for me. That was when Ataru made it clear he actually loved Lum. Before that he just seemed like an asshole.
>>
>>121974148
Well, Shinobu was his girlfriend before. But I think everyone just forgot that she was at some point.
>>
>>121976235
no. she was a tease playing hard to get, then agreed to be his wife in order to give him a reason to fight for earth. and finally turned into a raging bitch the moment lum look an interest in him. they weren't dating before lum showed up.
>>
>>121976540
They were dating. I think she had just broke up with Ataru. That's why Cherry thought Ataru was going to leap off a bridge.

Are you kidding me? His life is shit. Everyone shits on him ALL the time. Come to your senses please. This is an extremely brutal anime.

Takahashi didn't expect Lum to be so popular. When fanmail came asking for more Lum, since she liked Lum in the first place, she made her the main girl.

Early UY was clearly more of a weird sci-fi/harem/comedy thing instead until it became centered on a single girl.

May be blasphemy but OP and ED of the series is the final ones, maybe because I have fond memories of the last seasons late night when I lived in Japan.

Its a mixed bag, certain shitposting has been on the rise but I would say strictly on the subject of anime and manga tastes are becoming more patrician.

I have to admit that any UY or Lum threads before the last 6 months always pruned with hardly any replies.

Well yeah shes been in the industry for a billion years. I am surprised she had such a good run. I have a feeling Inuyasha would be better reviewed if it hadn't had a terrible fan-base and anime adaption.

He was pretty much me in high school, only better, Ataru was awesome for this, he was really normal, and even with all the shit that happen to him he was always happy, and ready to go for more adventures and troubles. He made two movies, went in a lot of dates with other girls, to the movie theater or circus, with his friends to all kind of places, to the beach with Lum in a double date with Mendou and Shinobu, he played a lot of sports. But he reminds me to how I was back then but only the negative side of his life, lazy ass, with parents that pretty much ignore you, the people I had for friends pretty much were the Lum Stormtroopers(especially Megane)

Ataru once had the opportunity to have an orgy harem in a dream, but chose to throw it away simply because Lum wasn't a part of it.

When the dream demon asked why he would give all this up for a girl he is always escaping from, he explained he runs away from her is because she electrocutes him every time he checks out another woman (a pretty good fucking reason), but he still loves her!

When the little girl at the end asked about it, he told her "I want to be free of a woman so I can keep loving her".

Ataru is the ultimate pervert. He wants it all when it comes to his lust and will stop at NOTHING to obtain it...but he also has heart. That's the joke.
