Urusei Yatsura goes out of print in September

Pop Culture News News Anime News

Anyone who has watched an anime before may have noticed that most of these anime feature either an alien girl showing up out of the blue and liking the main character (To-Love-Ru) or a girl who will stay by their side regardless of what they do that makes them angry (Inukami). These character types may seem original at first, but for the most part they draw upon the classic anime Urusei Yatsura which began and ended back in the 1980s.

Lum is perhaps one of the most iconic figures in anime and one of the most recognizable creations of Mamoru Oshii. Considering the fact that the anime has been out for twenty years, American anime publisher AnimEigo has had the license to bring all of the DVDs over for US residents to enjoy. Unfortunately on September 30th of this year they will let their license expire and no longer sell any copies of Urusei Yatsura. Meaning if you want to buy your share of Urusei Yatsura, then your time is running out. Personally however I have a feeling that some other company will pick up the license eventually for the iconic series.

    they should have alos noticed that the majority of these girls appear to be sexually active 13 year olds! They love their kinky school girls in Japan etc.

    I hope that another company does pick up the license to distribute Urusei Yatsura. I did not find out about this hilarious TV series until earlier this year and became an instant fan. Unfortunately, the DVDs started selling out before I could complete my collection.
