Urusei Yatsura 1: Onri Yu (1983) When everyone in town recieves invitations to Ataru's wedding, they are shocked to see that his alien sweetheart Lum is not the bride. Eventually they learn that when Ataru was playing games as a little boy, he stepped on a girl's shadow. Unbeknownst to him, the girl was from another planet where stepping on one's shadow is a form of marriage proposal, and now she and her family have come back to see that Ataru follows through on his promise. If he manages to get out of this without being killed by her folks, he'll still have to avoid being torn apart at the hands of Lum.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Sakura: The universe is truly vast. To think that someone could compete with Lum's bad taste in men.
  • Shinobu: MEN ARE SUCH WIMPS.
  • Rose: Now you know the might of the ultrasonic hammer.
  • [Rose, disguised as a *very* muscular Lum] Rose: This is the 36th one so far. Hmmm, I don't get it. How come they can see through my perfect disguise?
  • Elle: Love is a fragile thing. Love that is bright in the morning fades by the sunset. To keep love always fresh, and prevent spoilage, I developed this Refrigerator Of Love.
Movie Trivia:
  • While Lum is moping around town after the Elle ship leaves, she stops at restaurant called "Coffee Pierot". This is a reference to Studio Pierrot, the studio that animated the movie.
  • There is an abundance of references to roses in the film. In Japanese, the word for rose if "bara". The capital of Elle's planet is Baran. Elle's nanny is Babara, a play on the Japanese words "bara" and "baba" (old woman), and possibly the Western name "Barbera" as well. Elle's master-of-disguise is named Rose. During the flashback sequence, the young Elle can be seen wearing a nametag that reads: "Baragumi Eru" (Elle of the Rose Group). In Japan, kindergarten classes within the same school may have distinctive names, such as "sakuragumi" (cherry blossom class), or "momogumi" (peach class).
  • Lum throws a pun Ataru's way as they spend some time alone aboard her father's ship. She presents their "engeejiringu" (engagement rings) to him, and threatens to give him a "cho-denki rinchi" (super-electric lynching) if he ever tries to take his off.
  • The name of Elle's planet in Japanese is "Erusei". This is likely a pun on "urusei", part of the series title "Urusei Yatsura".
  • Rose stowed away in the space taxicab in what is known as a "tanuki statue". A takuni is a type of racoon-dog indigenous to Japan. Tanuki statues are found throughout Japan in front of restaurants and bars, though the one containing Rose came from Sakura's house. In Japanese folklore, a tanuki is often portrayed as a shapeshifter, appropriate for a master of disguise like Rose.
