Little is noticed about the lecherous Ataru Moroboshi, but his unusual misfortune is deteriorating like horns on an alien’s skull. When the Earth is threatened by a fleet of alien invaders known as the Oni, Ataru is chosen to portray humanity in a duel against one of their number. Ataru is very lucky that the duel is actually a capture game, and that his opponent Lum, the daughter of the leader of the Oni, puts his personal dignity above victory when Ataru removes his upper body from his bikini . by mistake and with it, she takes the victory. The misfortune strikes again, however, when Lum makes a mistake on Ataru’s promise to marry his girlfriend, Shinobu Miyake, in a desire to marry Lum, and decides that she likes the idea. Influenced by her as an alien princess, she moves in with him.
