35 years since this anime aired, and I don't think Cred Forums has ever really celebrated it. For those who haven't seen it, it was a hugely influential anime, and that influence is still being felt by the anime industry today.
Are there seriously people on Cred Forums who think Lum the Forever was just as good as Beautiful Dreamer?
>lol Fuck off.
>Who was the skeleton? The actual "princess" that Lum was playing in the movie they were recording in the beginning of the movie. She was dragged down and then seemingly died down there, like when the new city consciousness attempted to drag Lum and keep her there with it.
>Why did Lum stop being an alien? When the tree dies, the city was essentially being reborn. So, all the "alien" stuff disappeared, including the Yokai. Since Lum was an alien, she just lost her powers rather than vanishing like the Yokai.
Ran seemingly wasn't affected because (in the movie) she was pretty much already living as a normal earthling already, while Lum was still a "foreign particle". There's a scene early in the movie about how she used to be able to hear animals like Lum, but she can't anymore and such. Note that as soon as Ten appears and attempts to use his powers later in the movie, he falls unconscious.
>How was the problem resolved? People wishing for the old Tomobiki (by missing it, thus Mendo forcing a war and Ataru going back to running, like the first time he faced Lum) made the new city consciousness bring back the old city - with the Yokai and Lum, when it awakened fully.
Like mentioned above, there was supposed to be a scene in the script with Ataru and Mendo meeting Mendo's grandfather, but the director cut that scene since he dislike a big plot dump and preferred to focus on a "message".
Did you like Inaba the Dream Maker?
>Like mentioned above, there was supposed to be a scene in the script with Ataru and Mendo meeting Mendo's grandfather, but the director cut that scene since he dislike a big plot dump and preferred to focus on a "message". Even Oshii knew exposition was necessary at times, which is why he had it in Beautiful Dreamer.
Yamazaki is pretentious.
The manga had a better ending.
How did the anime version end?
please share subs for ovas and bluray movies
The art here looks more like Ranma
Pretty weird seeing such detailed nipples so arbitrarily.
Basically the same way, but removing the humor.
>its a trap episode
Well, that was a wild ride. Thx OP!
The Obstacle Course Swim Meet was shit
Would you become a Wolfman if you had the opportunity?
What's that fish in a space suit that appears so often?
Good version for the OVAs is out? Thanks for the heads up. Been postponing watching it since it was a huge video quality decline from tv batch.
It's a Dappya - there was a Rumiko one shot manga. Kattena Yatsura that was kind of a proto Urusei Yatsura. A newspaper boy somehow ends up stumbling on a government conspiracy, an alien invasion and invasion from an underwater race (the Dappya).
All three implant bombs in his body, but only realize it afterwards. If the bombs are detonated (which happens automatically if he dies), the whole universe would be destroyed. So, they make a peace treaty and decide to protect him for the rest of his life while they find a way to stop the bombs.
The Dappya appear constantly in the UY anime, and the mc himself appears in an early chapter of the manga, complete with the army escorting him to protect him. That scene is technically in the anime too, but I think the anime staff didn't realize the reference, since his design is pretty different, with much lighter hair, and they only show human tanks marching around him, removing the OVNI and Dappya soldiers.
His manga design is very similar to Ataru's but with a meeker face.
That's really weird, but kind of awesome
What's with these OVAs? They're extremely Rumiko Takahashi.
They're pretty much a selection of specific fan favorite chapters from after the manga had already finished. They don't even have much filler, which is why, for example, the four members of the Lum club barely appear - there's only one episode where they appear a lot and there they're mostly replacing Kosuke and Hokuto from the manga..
The ending made me cry.
Would you like a Sakura?
Something about not being able to say "I love you" but feeling like other people should know it when it's obvious. Ataru was always my favorite character, and this hit hard.
It was kind of frustrating to me coming from the tv finale where they freaking kissed.
Unfortunately, there is no consistency with the synchronization. Sometimes the subs appear to early, sometimes they're too late, sometimes they're just right but in the worst case (Inaba the Dream Maker, Date with a Spirit and Movie 5) they start out slightly out of sync, but as the OVA/Movie goes on, they gradually get more and more out of sync for some reason, and have to be readjusted constantly.
I'll probably upload a folder of all the sub files I've fixed but not everything will be perfect. You can certainly see how fucked up the subs are on movie 4 (which also had gradual desync problem, but I didn't notice) but I can only do my best with limited skill/knowledge. Hopefully a propper subber does the complete job one day.
As for 3, 4 and 5, you might not like this, but there's this channel on Youtube called TheGrandSpider. He uploaded great quality DVD rips of all 6 movies, complete with 4:3 ratios (aside from Beautiful Dreamer). I downloaded 3, 4 and 5 as AVIs using Clipconverter and hardcoded subs onto them. Are they matroska quality? Maybe not, but they get the job done for a stream. Also, call me when there's a torrent for all the movies in HD and 4:3 ratio.
I know that you should watch the first movie after 54 episode and then the second movie after 106, as Oshii quited afterwards. Dunno about the rest.
