[At Megane's Nazi-themed "Third Reich Decadent Cafe"]
But do you really think anyone'll come to a place that looks like this, Megane?
Maybe we should have gone with the 'Hot Babes Coffee Shop' like Ataru suggested. Lum gave it her OK too, after all.
I won't have Lum acting like a bimbo. Besides, do you know how hard it was to collect money from everyone in class to open this place? I'll be damned if I'll let it be operated according to Ataru's weird tastes.
'Weird tastes' he says...

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.
