The anime TV series that kept me into anime back in the early 1990’s is now finally making its way to Blu-ray box set form with Urusei Yatsura. Warner Bros. Japan has announced that the 218 episode series will come out in two box sets on December 20th, 2017 priced at 38,000 yen and 40,000 yen respectively. There’s not much in the way of details as to what it’ll be like but it’s coming from a new HD telecine work and with it being film stock originally it should look pretty clean and great. The first set has 117 episodes and the second set as 101 episodes.
Plot concept: What would you do if a tiger skin bikini-clad alien followed you to school every day? Poor Ataru’s life has never returned to normal since volatile extraterrestrial princess Lum fell for him. Now an excruciatingly wealthy and genteel rival, Mendo, adds to Ataru’s torment. Not to mention an unending stream of extraordinary classroom visitors and educational materials including incompetent cherry blossom spirits, a legendary nightmare-eating tapir, and a fourth-dimensional camera that breaches alternate realities.
