    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!
