Created by the mind of the Japanese screenwriter Rumiko Takahashi, Urusei Yatsura (original title "Urusei Yatsura") makes its first appearance in 1978 on the pages of the Japanese comics weeklyShonen Sunday. The success of Urusei Yatsura came about three years after its publication, so it was decided to turn this manga character into a cartoon of 216 episodes. The success of Urusei Yatsura it is mainly due to the characterization of the character, to the funny, bizarre and spicy stories, which manage to fully exploit all the potential of the fascinating green-haired alien. In fact, Lam is a beautiful extraterrestrial girl, fabulous long water-green hair, big eyes of the same color and a breathtaking physique, highlighted by a yellow striped bikini. It is characterized by two small horns that allow it to fly and launch strong electric discharges.

The story of Lum begins when the alien people of the planet Uru, decide to conquer the earth, therefore with their spaceship, stationed in orbit around the earth. In order to avoid unnecessary innocent victims, the commander of the spaceship Uru, Lum's father, gives a chance to the earthlings, establishing a competition between the two champions of their respective planets. Urusei YatsuraFor the planet Uru is chosen Urusei Yatsura, while for the planet earth an electronic supercomputer chooses Ataru Moroboshi, a guy who is definitely a champion ... but of bad luck and cowardice. If in this race Ataru Moroboshi, will be able to touch within 10 days the horns of Lam , the earth will be saved. Ataru is known by all the students of Tomobiki as a lazy and listless boy who, instead of studying, wastes time after girls. When the choice falls on him he trembles with fear, at the thought of having to face an alien, but when the fascinating Urusei Yatsura, he almost faints with happiness from that sweet vision. Urusei YatsuraAtaru Moroboshi he thinks that touching Lum's horns will be child's play, but he hasn't come to terms with the extraordinary abilities of the girl who is able to fly and give violent electric shocks. Meanwhile, the days pass without the boy being able to come close to Urusei Yatsura, the earth therefore seems doomed. Ataru is sad and feels the weight of all humanity on his shoulders, the only one who comforts him is his classmate Shinobu, who to encourage him promises him that if he wins the challenge she will marry him. At those words Ataru finds grit, ideas and invents a stratagem to capture Urusei Yatsura. Just the last day available, thanks to a powerful suction cup gun of his invention, Ataru, rip off Lum's bra, who in an attempt to take back the garment, is grabbed by the horns by the boy who, saving the earth from the invasion, shouts: <I won. I can finally get married!> Ataru was obviously referring to Shinobu, but Lum believes Ataru intends to marry her. Despite the defeat Lum is happy and hugs Ataru, filling him with kisses and swearing him eternal fidelity, while Shinobu, who witnesses the scene, indignant and furious, turns his back on the boy, giving him the "hard-earned Dongiovanni". Urusei YatsuraFrom here on will begin the adventures and misadventures of Lum, who will try in every way to seduce Ataru to convince him of the seriousness of his marriage intentions. In fact, on planet Uri, marriage is a very serious matter, therefore Urusei Yatsura he will fight with all his strength to keep his beloved next to him "darling" Ataru Moroboshi. In order to achieve its purpose, Urusei Yatsura he persecutes Ataru, going to live in his house and even following him inside the high school, which will cause several of his schoolmates to lose their heads. Ataru however, continues to chase his ex-girlfriend,Urusei Yatsura Shinobu who tired of the constant presence of Urusei Yatsura, falls in love with one of his classmates, the handsome and very rich Shoutaro Mendo, who is in turn in love with Urusei Yatsura. Among the many very nice characters that appear in the cartoon of Urusei Yatsura we remember Sakurambo, a Buddhist monk friend of Ataru who foretells disastrous events and who, together with his beautiful niece Sakura, fights supernatural beings. A nice constant presence is also Jariten, the cousin of Lam who flutters here and there and is always ready to defend Lum in case of danger, spitting fire like a dragon.
