Lum, Ataru, and friends return for another wild adventure in the town of Tomobiki, and this time… they’re making a movie! However, strange things are afoot when the Mendou family’s ancient cherry tree, Tarouzakura, seemingly comes alive and starts talking to other trees.

English Dub Issues Make This a 3 1/2 Star Release

by -

My Discotek “Urusei Yatsura” Blu-ray reviews are repetitious in terms of visuals. “Lum the Forever” is a clear leap ahead of the AnimEigo DVD. Some may criticize the lack of open-matte presentation, but I prefer the theatrical widescreen.

Audio is Linear PCM format. Japanese dialogue is presented in both 2.0 Stereo and dual mono.

The English dub is where this release loses points. It's listed as dual mono, but that's only partly true. The AnimEigo DVD track was stereo, but that DVD release suffered distortions in music and sound effects near the end of the film. They remain “baked-in”.

Those issues were heavier in one channel, so it seems DiscoTek chose to convert the last 15+ minutes to mono using the less-affected channel. So, this Blu-ray track begins in stereo, but becomes mono. I would have preferred having the entire track in mono.

I gave it 4 stars, but this should be 3 1/2 stars. The issues with the English dub could have been handled better.
