My Sketches - Coming Soon
Basic Info on Urusei Yatsura
The basic plotline is pretty simple: Girl falls in love with boy. Boy falls in love with every girl he sees. Girl is forced to keep him in check. The actual storyline, however, is much more detailed.
An alien race, called the Oni, have decided to invade earth. To give earth a chance, they choose a champion to play a game of tag (the Oni national sport) to determine the fate of earth, where the defender would have to catch the alien and touch the pair of tiny horns on its head. The (un?) lucky champion is Ataru Moroboshi, a lecherous teenager who flirts with every girl he sees. At first, Ataru refuses, until he sees his challenger - the beautiful Lum, the daughter of one of the invading aliens, who goes around most of the time in a tiger-skin bikini. Ataru immediately falls head-over-heels in love with her and desperately tries to win, but has little luck after discovering she can fly. As the deadline to catch Lum counts down, Ataru's semi-girlfriend Shinobu promises to marry him if he wins. Ataru then becomes serious, and manages to touch Lum's horns after stealing her bikini top. However, after he wins he starts boasting about getting married, and Lum thinks that he is proposing to her and accepts. From then on, the series develops as Ataru keeps trying to flirt with every girl he sees, and Lum being forced to electrically deter him as she plans their marriage.
