This classic sci-fi comedy series follows the exploits of Ataru, the most bumbling, lecherous fool ever to walk the halls of his high school. Ataru's family always seems too exhausted to deal with his antics, which may be why they allow Lum, the sweet but troublesome Oni who drops by their house to move in. Oni are creatures of Japanese mythology who have incredible powers and wear tiger skins. In Urusei Yatsura, however, we find our Oni is a beautiful girl who wears a tiger skin bikini. Lum falls in love with Ataru and becomes convinced that he will marry her. Hilarity ensues as Lum's powers always seem to infest the town with dinosaurs or envelope the family house in a mushroom cloud, but, somehow, things are always fine again by the next episode. Another point of note is Lum's enduring devotion to Ataru, despite his unfaithful nature. She may always forgive him, but the effects of her otherworldly powers always reap revenge on him anyway. ~ Cammila Albertson, All Movie Guide
