The 2022 ‘Urusei Yatsura’ reboot anime made a splash following its debut on Fuji TV in Japan with the Tokyo-based David Production releasing the first season of twenty-three episodes. HiDive brought it over to the United States with their streaming service and now Sentai Filmworks has announced that they would continue to dub the series.
“Why hello fellow English dub connoisseurs! We’ve got great news to share. Although we already announced that the Urusei Yatsura English dub would continue uninterrupted starting in May, we didn’t tell you the exact date and time it would start (admittedly, one could deduce that since the keyword here was “uninterrupted,” but we digress). The wait is over because the dub continues on HIDIVE,” they said on their website.
Voice actress Jade Kelly (Call of the Night) has been tapped for the role of heroine Lum while Nathan Wilson (Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya) will voice protagonist Atar.

The anime is based on the 1978 manga by Rumiko Takahashi. It was serialized in the pages of the magazine Weekly Shōnen Sunday from Japanese publisher Shogakukan. Viz Media released it in the United States.
AniList describes the synopsis as follows,
“When an alien race known as the Oni invade 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 Lum, the Oni’s very pretty princess, and it’s only thanks to Ataru’s unscrupulous behavior that he’s able to scrape out a win in a treacherous game of tag against her. Ataru thinks he’s had his lucky break at last, but when Lum takes a shine to him off the battlefield, the conflict follows him home as Lum invades not only planet Earth but also the womanizing Ataru’s love life!”
The original ‘Urusei Yatsura’ anime ran from 1981 to 1986 and had several OVA spin-offs and feature film sequels.
