Episodes 182-195 (TV End) + Movie 4 (Lum the Forever) today.
35 years since this anime aired, and I don't think /a/ has ever really celebrated it. For those who haven't seen it, it was a hugely influential anime, and that influence is still being felt by the anime industry today.

I make no profit, nor gain any benefits from doing this; my sole motivation is to celebrate this classic anime.
I mean, the movie was coming out around the series ending. It's basically saying that things end and you shouldn't be afraid of change.
It's stupid how they cut the exposition scene with Mendo's grandfather, but outside of that I like the movie. It's really nice to see a movie that mostly uses the series cast and still manages to stand out, without wasting time giving focus to pointless movie-only characters.
If you just want fanwank, nobody said anything about Lum being randomly selected. They don't talk like she has a permanent role in the Oni military or duties as their tag champion she's neglecting, either, she was there because she wanted to be.
Why is the second movie so expensive? Even the VHS tape is like $15.
Why would they be? So I guess that's the best release then? I wonder how it compares to the laserdisc (as if anyone here owns a laserdisc of beautiful dreamer)
I miss U.S. manga corps.
I don't suppose they have access to the original 32mm reels?
People forget Beautiful Dreamer was originally HD in the cinema, complete with a 16:9 aspect ratio, but cropped for TV release. It's just that the lazy distributors last year couldn't be bothered making a proper remaster, so they cropped the DVD.
Yeah, but it was fair game back then. Everyone had a TV like pic related so it would've been letterboxed.
So what the fuck was with Lum the Forever?
Started off decently enough. Like Beautiful Dreamer, had a lot of weird and surreal scenes and raised a lot of questions to intrigue the audience.
Then the second half happened and it shat the bed. So much inane shit was happening for no real reason, tone was all over the place and hardly any of the questions raised at the start were answered properly. Just a mess of a movie.
They cut the scene where Ataru and Mendo meet Mendo's grandfather and there was supposed to be tons of exposition about the original legend and how it might relate to what was happening there.
It's pretty noticeable since there's a sudden cut when they go to meet him and afterwards Ataru and Mendou seemingly know what's going on but the viewer never gets a direct explanation about it.
AFAIK, Beautiful Dreamer (and Only You) were in 4:3 because they used the same cels they had for the TV series.
One of my favorite episodes was the Miss Tomobiki elections one. It was insane.
What I don't get is why were the Sakura supporter groups labeled as "pedophiles".
Was it because Ryuunosuke was getting all the attention from the freshman girls and they wanted to impose a mature sexy figure instead?
I want to watch Urusei Yatsura anime but it has lot of filler.
What are the episodes of filler?
What is the order?

But I recommend you to watch all of them, since this is a episodic show.
