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>

a very sweet movie
22 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

you know, i must admit, this line of anime is the craziest series i've seen next to ranma 1/2. its fun, funny, exciting, and hilarious (did i mention funny?) anyway, this plot is very interesting. ataru has one of the most bizarre pasts, even more bizarre than his lustful perversion. one things for sure, you'll have to see a few of the episodes to understand the humor and the characters. the only problem i found with this title was those obnoxious endings! when are lum and ataru gonna kiss?? lol. by the way, lum is one of the hottest anime babes in my opinion. overall, this is a definite one to see.
