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.
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.
Learn to life, m80
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.
>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.
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.
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.
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.
Are you kidding me? In the first 5 episodes, you've got this character get shit on by EVERYONE, his fucking mother go "I should never have had him", him get electrocuted by Lum even though she knows what that does to him, you've got every earthling get treated like dirt shit and you are just saying "his motivation seems off"?
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.
>/a/ finally gets their shit together and watches UY
>/a/ recognizes Lum as god-tier
Am I dreaming?
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.
>/a/ has been trending upward since 2013
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.
(i don't remember the number)with ran was the first time she show up and when she pretended to be sick, with ryuunosuke in a competition of football and an alternative universe where Ataru lost against lum, Sakura was in a dream world the both were sharing(not the second movie), with Shinobu, I can't remember, but it happen.
Since when did Urusei Yatsura's popularity spike? Did something happen?
Who else finds Sakura's deep, husky voice incredibly
>the clothes of Ataru here and in the opening of Rock the planet are reference to David from 2001 space odyssey
>no otakus would self-insert into Ataru.
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)
The endings of this show were god tier.
koi no Mobius was my favorite
>guy can have all the hot tits, ass, and pussy he wants
>avoids it and spends most of his time looking for other hot tits, ass, and pussy
I always loved how Lum held a grudge against Shinobu simply because she was a rival, even when she was uninterested in Ataru. Nowadays it would be considered a petty character flaw rather than a realistic personality.
There is a guy editing LRE's subs to fit Kagura's BD Rip. He has finished Box 1 and 2 and has just resumed work on 3.
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.
thank god for dta and autism
