Summary of Urusei Yatsura
Little is noticed about the lustful Ataru Moroboshi, but his extraordinary misfortune stands as horns on an alien's skull. When a fleet of alien invaders called Oni is threatened by Earth, Ataru is chosen to represent mankind in a duel against one of them. Ataru is very lucky that the duel is indeed a game of capture, and that his opponent Lum, daughter of the leader of the Oni, puts his personal dignity above victory when Ataru mistakenly removes the top of his bikini and with it, she takes the victory. Luck comes again, however, when Lum forgets Ataru's promise to marry his girlfriend, Shinobu Miyake, as someone who wants to marry Lum, and decides that he likes the idea. Exercising her influence as an alien princess, she moves in with him.
