Urusei Yatsura Fanfiction
« on: October 25, 2022, 07:11:04 AM »
Although Urusei Yatsura is a popular manga/anime series, has a low number of fanfiction works.

The fact of being an old series, by manga standards 44 years, by anime 41 years doesn't help it.

By numbers, this one's from FF.net, comparing to other notable works of Rumiko Takahashi, the numbers are:

1° Inuyasha - 121K Fanfics
2° Ranma 1/2 - 15.6K Fanfics
3° Urusei Yatsura - 145 Fanfics
4° RIN-NE - 113 Fanfics
5° Maison Ikkoku - 23 Fanfics

The discrepancy between 2nd and 3rd are abysmal, I'm a avid fanfiction reader so I like to read some fanfiction from my favorite series.

I like Inuyasha and Ranma but it's more like, I watched and liked it but I don't identified with it, with Urusei Yatsura I go back watching some favorite episodes over and over again.

I'm kinda surprised with Maison Ikkoku though, with having such a low number of stories.

With the new series I hope that the numbers increase for Urusei Yatsura.

If I were to attribute it to anything, that might be because FF.net was in its peak right as the Inuyasha anime got very popular in the West.
As for Ranma, a fanfiction community for it already existed on rec.arts.anime.creative in the 90's, giving it a headstart.
I also think character ships are a big fuel for fanfics; If UY and Maison had love triangles, Ranma's got a love decagon. (Inuyasha's also got plenty ships to spare)

That is strange though... Like you said, here's hoping UY All-Stars boosts the numbers a bit.
