The series currently streams in the United States on HIDIVE, who describe the story of Urusei Yatsura as follows:
When an alien race known as the Oni invades Earth, the chronically unlucky and unapologetically lecherous Ataru Moroboshi is selected as humanity’s representative in a duel for the fate of the planet! His opponent is Princess Lum, and it’s only thanks to Ataru’s dodgy behavior that he’s able to win a treacherous game of tag against her. Ataru thinks he’s had his lucky break at last, but the conflict follows him home as Lum invades both planet Earth AND the womanizing Ataru’s love life!
Keijo!!!!!!!! director Hideya Takahashi is helming the series as director alongside Yasuhiro Kimura (2.43: Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team) with character designs by Naoyuki Asano (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) and series compositions written by Yuko Kakihara (The aquatope on white sand). The animation is being produced at david production.
The four parts of Urusei Yatsura, which adapts some all-star stories from the original manga, are showing on Fuji TV's Noitamina block in sequential order for the first two parts. In English-speaking nations, the series will be streamed on HiDIVE.
