Storyline

When everyone in town receives invitations to Ataru's wedding, they are shocked to see that his sweetheart Lum is not the bride. Eventually they learn that when Ataru was playing games as a little boy, he stepped on a girl's shadow. Unbeknownst to him, the girl was from extraterrestrial culture where stepping on one's shadow is a form of marriage proposal, and now she and her family have come back to see that Ataru keeps his promise. If he manages to get out of this without being killed by her folks, he'll still have to avoid being torn apart by the hands of Lum. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The best of the UY movies
17 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

When everyone in Tomobiki receives invitations for Ataru's wedding, and Lum's not the bride, it doesn't take much to get everyone into an uproar. Things don't get better when it turns out that Ataru's bride-to-be is another alien princess.

This is truly a fantastic movie. Fast-paced comedy, coupled with a romantic story and wacky characters make this movie into a must-see for any anime fan. But to get the most out of this movie, it surely helps to already be a fan of the series.
