Rumiko Takahashi, the original creator of the "Urusei Yatsura" manga, was reportedly displeased with this film, as it superseded the original ending for the manga (made into the movie Urusei Yatsura 5: Final), and was made with very little input from her. See more »
This film does not continue or conclude part no. 5. It doesn't even fit into the sixth place continuity-speaking. Don't get irritated, just cram it into that space between 4 and 5, not that it's really that important. The film is funny, as UY-films go and less serious and more silly than the fifth film, but no match to it (maybe a little better than parts 3 and 4). The animation is okay, the music is okay, what more is there to say ? Don't expect a grand finale a la Last Chapter.
