Coming to a Blu-ray release, ‘Urusei Yatsura Always My Darling’ the sixth and final film from the anime. Directed by Katsuhisa Yamada, the movie was first released to Japanese theaters in 1991 and would be made available to international audiences later. Now Discotek Media is releasing it on home video, featuring both the original Japanese cast and the English dubbed version.
The original teaser is available as a special feature.
You can watch the 10th-anniversary trailer below:
The movie was produced by Kitty Films and animated by Madhouse with Mitsuru Kotaki composing the music. It would be the last film in the original franchise until a 2012 OVA. It was distributed by Argo Project instead of Toho, which had released the previous entries.
Right Stuf Anime describes the synopsis as follows,
“You thought The Final Chapter was the last Urusei Yatsura movie? Nope, sorry! This time around there’s a girl named Lupica – there’s always a girl with an outlandish name in these movies – and she’s out to kidnap the most lecherous person in the universe! That’s Ataru Moroboshi, of course, and for some insanely contrived reasons he’s the only person alive who is able to snatch a mystical love potion. A love potion Lupica wants to win the heart of a mild-mannered intergalactic tofu deliveryman. She could just ask him out, but she’s too scared to, so instead decides brainwashing is the way to go. Things don’t go to plan, of course, and the love potion ends up being used on Ataru instead! He starts to go crazy and also bark like a dog for some reason, but that’s okay, because he was already a dog to begin with. Lum tries to save him despite this, the citizens of Tomobiki get really mad about the chaos, and it’s all a big mess, really.”
The set is available for pre-order on Right Stuf Anime.
