I'm watching this after reading it, and really enjoying it! Lum is cute, it's pretty funny, it's a good time, overall. But I just can't seem to be able to create a successful thread about it.What are your thoughts on it? On the author's other works? On other older anime and manga?
I don't know. I haven't seen it.
>>2I'd recommend it. If you're into that sort of anime.
It was okay, but her later stuff was better
>>4UY is her best work.
Not every girl from an anime gets a life sized statue!
>>6I wonder how many hobos have dry humped that thing
>>7Why? What are you trying to say...
>>6It's a cute statue!>>7Probably none. Besides I think these statues were put up only in the last handful of years.
It's been over a year since I watched UY. What a feeling. I love this slow website.
It's been five years since I finished Urusei Yatsura now. It's a series I hold dear to my heart even now. Something about it is just so nostalgic.
>>10I will watch it to... some day. And then I'll be back to look at this post in the future and think of the better times.
Have you read Teenages From Outer Space? It's a tabletop RPG released in the 80s inspired by Urusei Yatsura, among others.
>>13That, BESM and Mekton Zeta are games I've wanted to try. Unsurprisingly it's very difficult to find people who want to play old anime-inspired TRPGs.
>>14Supposedly all of the western mech boardgames and war games are inspired by anime, but I find that claim dubious.Polite sage for me being offtopic.
>>15It's not entirely dubious in the sense that several designs are lifted straight from them, especially in the case of Battletech. I hate those games though. Their only good designs are stolen and their originals are crap.
>>16Come on, who can't love the Catapult and Mad Cat?
>>17They're just cockpits with limbs. Nothing cool about it.
Started watching it a month ago. It's a fun show.Mendou best boy and Ryuunosuke best girl (after Lum).
I'm almost done watching it, only few episodes left, i think its great, but i liked Maison Ikkoku better.
>>20I couldn't really get into Maison Ikkoku.
Anyway I love Urusei Yatsura and it's the greatest long-running comedy anime of all time.
Oh shit I just realized that I made the OP post like three years ago. How the time fucking flies.
I know it was a popular manga in the 80s, and its a popular anime with the hipsters of today, but I dont like it. I'd rather read or watch anime adaptations of some of the dirtier manga from the 70s, back when american standards didn't ruin foreign entertainment
>back when american standards didn't ruin foreign entertainmentWut?
>>24You won't watch stuff from the 80s?
