Trivia

There is a scene in which Sakura breaks the thong on one of her geta (wooden clogs). This act is considered unlucky in Japan. Her uncle Cherry then shows up and more unlucky events occur. A black cat darts out in front of them, and a hearse drives by. The Japanese also believe that if a hearse drives past them, and if they don't hide their thumbs, an early death will befall their parents. See more »

Goofs

During the closing credits, Kôichi Kitamura is listed as being the voice of Upa (Rupa's great-grandfather). This is incorrect, Upa's voice was in fact performed by Ken'ichi Ogata, who also provided the voice for Ataru's father. Kitamura's actual role was that of Lum's great-grandfather. See more »

Carla: How dare you interfere with my ship's path! Thanks to you, my ship is trashed!
Ataru: But that's no reason to kill someone before getting acquainted!
Carla: Stop talking nonsense and just sign this marriage license!

My favourite UY movie !!
20 December 1999 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is certainly my favourite Urusei Yatsura movie. Summarizing the last chapters of the comic it concludes the story of Lum's and Ataru's fight for love and each other more or less (or so I believe; I haven't actually read the comic that far). The story is complex (for UY), the jokes are witty (still no sign of meta-humour, though) and it's altogether more fast-paced and action packed than any preceeding UY-film. As usual this adaption of the comic series puts more emphasis on romance and relationship than the original, making the characters seem rather stern. Especially Ataru's behaviour has changed drastically for the... less weird. This was meant to be the last UY movie, but a sixth one was done as an anniversary-special or so. If you liked the first 4, you'll love this one. If you were dissappointed by said films, this one just might make it up to you.
