Quotes

Ataru's Father: Are you awake Ataru? It may surprise you, but listen to what I have to say. Your mother and i probably won't be alive when you hear this tape. We made every effort to find some way to awaken you and Lum from your mysterious sleep. But present day science, not just of Earth, but of Lum's planet as well couldn't revive the two of you. Forgive us. We've stacked our last hopes, and your fates, on the future. We thought that science a few centuries from now might have a chance of awakening you. ...

Classic Urusei Yatsura
19 November 1999 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Being from England this film was not easy to come by, but was well worth the wait. I own the DVD of this movie (Subtitled and Dubbed versions on the disc). Although I think the dubbed version really spoils the feel of the UY characters, (Mendou doesn't sound like the rich snob he is portrayed as in the Japanese version) it was still enjoyable.

As far as the narrative if the film goes, I think it is certainly the most atmospheric of the UY movies (closely followed by Movie #4) the scenes of Tomobiki from Mendou's harrier, and Lum washing a water melon just pitch miles above anything I have ever seen in Anime.

Well worth buying no matter where you live.
