On October 13 in Japan, a new Urusei Yatsura anime will air for the first time. The announcement was accompanied by a brand-new key image showing the show's lead actors and supporting cast.
The manga Urusei Yatsura, written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi, was serialized in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday from 1978 to 1987. There will be four courses. The first season of the anime, which consists of the first two episodes, will air nonstop.
With Yuuko Kakihara (The Aquatope on White Sand) serving as the series composer and Naoyuki Asano (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) serving as the character designer, the animation is directed by Hideya Takahashi and Kimura Yasuhiro of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Golden Wind. The animation's production firm is called David Production.
Viz Media describes the manga as:
In a high-stakes game of tag, Ataru must touch Lum’s horns in ten days—or aliens will take over the earth! The fact that Lum can fly doesn’t make Ataru’s job any easier. As it turns out, the game of tag is only the beginning of Ataru’s troubles, as he continues to attract strange encounters with otherworldly beings like beautiful snow spirit Oyuki and the sexy crow goblin Princess Kurama!
In the 1980s, the Urusei Yatsura manga was converted into an anime series. It also served as the basis for numerous films and OVAs. Mamoru Oshii, who had not yet directed Ghost in the Shell, served as the series' principal director for the first 129 episodes during its run from 1981 to 1986. After that, Kazuo Yamazaki (Yume Tsukai) assumed the position. The majority of the films were released in the 1980s, however one was released in 1991. Although one was released in 2010, the OVAs were primarily released at that time.
