About Urusei Yatsura Manga Volume 1

Urusei Yatsura Manga Volume 1 features story and art by Rumiko Takahashi.

The hilarious manga classic featuring beautiful space alien princess Lum!

Beautiful space alien princess Lum invades Earth on her UFO, and unlucky Ataru Moroboshi’s world gets turned upside down! Will Lum become Earth’s electrifying new leader? Or will Ataru somehow miraculously save Earth from space alien onslaught?

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!

Comedy Gold!!!

by

After reading this classic comedy manga I still can't stop laughing! Vastly superior to most of the American cartoons these days!

Classic Comedy

by -

This classic is hilarity personified. In this edition you will get two of the original volumes so it's rather on the large side but the book itself is rather light.

However there is one small problem which has no bearing on the actual writing and all that. There are some instances where the translators didn't translate a bit of the Japanese. At least in the first edition. Some of the untranslated text doesn't seem to be too important but some like one of Cherry's prayers on page 176 might be.

Great Edition of a classic manga

by -

This version contains 2 volumes in one, and has nice detailed omakes about the world of Urusei Yatsura at the end of each part.

While the work isn't as refined as Rumiko Takahashi's later works (Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2, or Inuyasha), the comedy still holds up well, and is a great read for any fans of her works.

The volume itself is on the larger size, being 2-1, but it isn't heavy and certainly not too big. Just right if you're used to other western books.

If you have never read it before I highly recommend picking up a copy!

"Those Obnoxious Aliens" indeed

by -

If you get annoyed by the strangeness, then you are ok. If not, you are still ok.

This is a series that can be all over the place, like some chapters are out of place of the story. However keep in mind that..
1.) This is a series of comics. Comics didn't necessarily sell ongoing story lines. They sold comics.
2.) I imagine the Rumiko's later works, like Inuyasha, is much more stretched out and planned.
3.) See the title.

So far Lum reminds me of Shampoo from Ranma 1/2. But you are going to have verbally direct characters clash over more subtle ones - so I am ok with the similarities. Plus if it works once...

This omnibus (2 in 1) has great end of the volume notes and data slates for characters that is even more descriptive than Maison Ikkoku's.

I went expecting a lot from the series, got little disappointed, but then remembered the title and it won me back again.

The OG space princess waifu

by -

Rumiko Takahashi wrote this story almost 50 years ago and changed manga forever. She introduced so many readers to Lum. The main female character of Uruseu Yatsura, one of the innovative characters who helped shape the type of character we now classify as waifu. Lum and the story as a whole helped inspire and influence many later works/characters. This newly released edition is a wonderful purchase for anyone looking to read a classic manga that still holds up
