About Urusei Yatsura Beautiful Dreamer Blu-ray

In Urusei Yatsura: Beautiful Dreamer, Tomobiki High is in a frenzy to get ready for the school festival. Props need to be made, costumes designed, and maybe somewhere sleep to be had! Ataru, Lum, Shutaro, Shinobu, and the rest of Class 2-4 are determined to not be outdone this year, and they're rushing to make the final preparations for tomorrow's grand opening.

Once they wake up the next morning, they continue their mad rush to get ready for tomorrow's grand opening. And then the next day... hey, isn't something strange going on? Silence lingers over the city, the buildings filled with nothing but dust and mold. Is this a dream? Or have the kids (and a few related adults) of Class 2-4 finally woken up? If they can spend each day having fun with each other, does it matter? From the director of Ghost in the Shell!

One of the best UY feature films


This is one of the better films that Mamorou Oshii (GiTS) directed and one of the better sections of UY in general. In spite of being based on Eastern mythology that is utterly foreign to most people born in the West, it makes more sense than either of the GiTS features this same director produced! Lum is as cute as ever and the characters are all (loveable?) idiots. Think Ranma 1/2 minus the martial arts and you'll have an idea of what to expect behavior-wise!
There's no doubt the new DVD release will be much better than the two previous DVD editions BUT if you have the sense to do so get the Blu ray edition. The film has had a digital restoration and being based on a 35mm theatrical print should look spectacular on Blu ray.

A disappointment

by -

I picked up Urusei Yatsura 2: Beautiful Dreamer after hearing glowing reviews for years. While the animation was beautiful, the story was slow, plodding, and had a hard time establishing the plot. For a series that is known as a comedy, this film was the exact opposite.

a Beautiful Film but not a Comedy

by -

While the Urusei Yatsura series is generally known for being an incredibly long romantic comedy this film instead focuses on director Mamoru Oshii's favorite topics: philosophy and surrealism. While this makes the film somewhat detached from the rest of the series it manages to mostly work as a standalone film. If you are interested in any of Oshii's other works (Ghost in the Shell Movies, Patlabor Movies 1 & 2, Angel's Egg, Sky Crawlers) than this will be right up your alley.

As for the release itself the audio and visuals are crisp and the liner notes are comprehensive enough that they can fill in first timers who haven't watched the TV show and also show some of the more subtle details within the film. The inclusion of an interview with Oshii, even if it was included on previous releases, is greatly appreciated.

Great Film

by -

I really enjoy this movie! Although there are a lot of references to Japanese myth and folklore, it is still an enjoyable movie that is funny and even heartfelt. Also the animation is absolutely gorgeous, but that is kind of expected as the director of this film also made Ghost In The Shell. I would recommend this film for a more anime knowledgeable person rather than a newbie.

A misunderstood work of art.


An underrated gem from the brilliant mind if Mamoru Oshii. Though confusing to many who watch it for the first time, if one is familiar with Japanese mythology, and considers the nature of the soul and earthly desires, then it starts to become more enjoyable. Other than that, the animation and soundtrack are amazing and it really expands on the universe of Urusei Yatsura.
