    The fifth promotional video for the second half of Urusei Yatsura confirms the second half will run for two cours with 23 episodes. The trailer also highlights the opening and ending theme songs. MAISONdes performs the opening theme song “Lock On feat. HashiMelo, Megurimeguru” and ending theme song “Raizakura feat. 9Lana, SAKURAmoti.” 

    Urusei Yatsura’s second half began on January 11, and HIDIVE streams new episodes on Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. PDT / 12:30 p.m. EDT. David Production (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) will continue to produce the series with directors Hideya Takahasi, Yasuhiro Kimura, and Takahiro Kamei. In English, Lum is voiced by Jade Kelly, and Ataru is voiced by Nathan Wilson. 

    Lastly, here’s an overview of the new anime series, via HIDIVE:

    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!
