Title: ataru!!
Post by: watashi on July 30, 2007, 03:38:56 AM
 _/-\o_ i admire him!! a LOT
he has always made me curious...
how can.... he be so... so.. weird!!

his akwardness is so interesting
lol and i like the way he escapes from lum
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Cosmic King on July 30, 2007, 05:13:06 AM
He is indeed the heart of the UY saga as well as lum,both  of them complete each other,in me opinion,they are the best anime couple
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: watashi on July 30, 2007, 07:24:26 AM
the best?? i cant say that... YET because i havent gone through most of the anime couples
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Cosmic King on July 30, 2007, 08:45:45 PM
Think on it,watashi,if ya were to notice some of the recent anime couples you will notice that sometimes they argue a lot and never solve their differences,in UY ataru and lum have a similar situation but one knows that there is a love link and a great spark on them,so realistic it seems as fiction,besides in all the rumiko takahashi animes and mangas,lum and ataru are the few that really have a good relation,think on it
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on July 31, 2007, 12:49:16 AM
All anime couples (most of them) are so similar to Lum and Ataru. In my opinion Lum and Ataru are the Best Anime Couple ever.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: watashi on July 31, 2007, 04:19:09 AM
well yeah thats true...

but there has been many more complicate situations than ataru and lum
and some couples didnt even have a chance to really love each other because they were seperated... [in one case seperated by death]
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on July 31, 2007, 04:29:52 AM
I don't like that kind of endings...
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: watashi on July 31, 2007, 04:31:55 AM
well actually in that anime it wasnt even part of the story that event had happened before

but you get to know about it because he talks about his past and so...
so so sad.. makes me cry!!
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on July 31, 2007, 04:35:07 AM
It's better for me to stay away from that kind of endings because when I saw someone cry (even if it is Anime) I cry, too.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: watashi on July 31, 2007, 04:37:43 AM
my friend cries everytime she reads this manga... even if she has read it 100 times already

they make those moments so sentimental...
it touches even the coldest hearts
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Cosmic King on July 31, 2007, 04:39:30 AM
That means they really know to appreciate anime,amigos

But lets return to ataru,a man that realy knows how emotions work  ;)

I can't feel anything, unless happyness or rage.

i found this poem about a cat the other day...
but it doesnt say who wrote it... but i like it

sweet-talk artist, malcontent,
quite little innocent,
Agile gymnast, silly clown,
with Cheshire grin or solemn frown,
busybody, stay at home,
fearless hunter free to roam,
alley fighter, diplomat...
so many faces has the cat
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Cosmic King on August 08, 2007, 09:41:17 PM
Kinda unusual but it is a well written poem
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: watashi on August 11, 2007, 04:58:10 AM
yeah i thought so too
but since its about a cat... i fell for it
if you really know cats
you know what poet was trying to get through
and since i love cats and i know almost
everything about them it really go to me

ok back to topic
is ataru afraid of anything??
because i remember ranma is afraid of cats..
does ataru even have a weak spot [besides lum..]

Definition of a cat - One heck of a fine animal often mistaken for a meatloaf. :D)

Has Ataru ever delivered a blistering insult to Lum, or is he incapable of insulting a woman in a severe way? I know he called her a "bitch" once. What an asswipe! >:(
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: janus on August 15, 2007, 01:27:15 AM
according to the subs, Ataru insults Lum that way, but, according on what the phrase he actually pronounced was "Lamu no ajo", which is also used more frequently by ten, for example he used this word to insult onsen mark when drunk, but it could apply in the same way with the word "baka".
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Cosmic King on August 15, 2007, 04:50:25 AM
Yeah,that is correct,janus,sometimes the subs r not 100 % faithful,maybe this isnt da case but inda UY manga version of Viz they translated Setsubun as if it were some kind of Alien Hallowen
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: dak on September 16, 2008, 04:26:44 PM
Lose Lum and always have her around are two things Ataru afraid of.
That someone's line but i don't remember whose ???
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on September 22, 2008, 10:48:08 PM
Ataru is afraid of electricity schocks and I'm not sure about what I'm going to say next because I don't know if it was a dream of mine or if I watched it in an episode/OVA/movie: Ataru is afraid of lightenings.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: veehive on September 23, 2008, 12:22:05 AM
In episode 3 of the TV series, Ataru counts off the things he's afraid of. According to the American-English subtitles, they are: Earthquakes, Lightning, Fires, (and) Girls. I can't pick-up spoken nihongo just yet or I'd be more sure of what he actually says ....

(researching this forced me to go back and watch that old episode ... thanks!  ;D)
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: FallinG_StaR on September 23, 2008, 01:11:50 AM
I think the one thing he most fears is... Marriage... or some kind of commitment...
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Kroptik on September 23, 2008, 01:15:01 AM
I think his biggest fear is admiting to himself that he loves Lum...
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: dak on September 23, 2008, 06:42:33 AM
It not his fear, i sure.

In an episode about fake date, a trap Megane had set for Ataru( don't remember what this episode's name, damn) he say that he love her.

I think he afraid of be tied up with a girl and live in a world without beautiful women.

Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: veehive on September 24, 2008, 02:19:51 AM
He must have been out of his mind then...?!?!?!

Well ... he was cowering under the desk in his bedroom while a lightning storm raged just outside (and Lum was perched on the sill of the open window next to the desk) when he said it ... so he may have been a little distracted. 
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on September 25, 2008, 10:27:55 PM
I think he said it without really thinking about what he was saying.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Kroptik on September 28, 2008, 01:01:13 PM
I don't think he's afraid of girls. Notice that when he says "girls" he completely forgets about the lightningstorm, so I think he includes girls in his fear list to give him back some courage.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on September 28, 2008, 10:27:27 PM
Nice thinking Kroptik. When I'm scared I try to think about anything else to calm myself down. So it could definetely Ataru's case.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: veehive on September 28, 2008, 11:43:34 PM
I disagree. I think it's a "Freudian Slip" for Ataru. I think he's afraid of Girls (at least at this point in the storyline) ...

Afraid of Girls ... or afraid of what Girls represent to him (whatever that might be).
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: dak on September 29, 2008, 08:32:29 AM
His fears? uhm, let's see:
(http://img03.picoodle.com/img/img03/3/9/29/dakd/f_UYS1E2Mailfm_0b2f71b.jpg) (http://www.picoodle.com/view.php?img=/3/9/29/dakd/f_UYS1E2Mailfm_0b2f71b.jpg&srv=img03)

I'm not sure about earthquake but i sure he no longer afraid of lightning, fire, and girls.

here is proof about lightning:

(http://img27.picoodle.com/img/img27/3/9/28/dakd/f_UYS2E9ABeaum_7554291.jpg) (http://www.picoodle.com/view.php?img=/3/9/28/dakd/f_UYS2E9ABeaum_7554291.jpg&srv=img27)

and these ones are about fire:

(http://img27.picoodle.com/img/img27/3/9/28/dakd/f_UYS5E11Enram_b34346a.jpg) (http://www.picoodle.com/view.php?img=/3/9/28/dakd/f_UYS5E11Enram_b34346a.jpg&srv=img27)

If he still afraid of fire, he is roasted walking corse now

And if he afraid of girls, }) }) }), no girls, no harem, and his dream hit the dead end.

Thank you detective Dak! I guess this case is closed. ^^
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: veehive on September 29, 2008, 10:50:43 PM
Amusing.  :)  However, I remain unconvinced.

Ataru is afraid of girls or whatever "girls" represent to him: success, failure, rejection, adulthood, responsibility .... His reaction to such things is Overcompensation (he leaps to his balcony railing and proclaims "I'm not afraid of anything!" at the top of his lungs).

I consider this to be key to understanding his personality.  ;D

No offense.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: dak on September 30, 2008, 10:17:21 AM
Thank you lady cata

But veehive, overcompensation, what does this word mean ???
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on September 30, 2008, 10:00:39 PM
Let's face it. He became stronger towards electricty and fire. There's no doubts about that. Everyone knows that his life changed completely on the day that he met Lum for the first time. Aliens, insane monks, demons, etc. Maybe he just panicked and flipped out and yelled everything that came to his mind when he was feeling trapped. Fire, electricity - fears. Girls - dreams. I have had a few experiences that I could have died then and the only thing that came to my mind was a person. In his case I don't think he was already in love with Lum so he was not in love so he just thought about every attractive young lady that came up to his mind at that time.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: veehive on October 01, 2008, 04:23:06 AM
Sorry for the delay -- you made me dig out my old Intoduction to Psychology textbook.  ;D

Overcompensation is "an attempt to overcome a real or imagined defect or unwanted trait ... by overly exaggerating its opposite".

Ataru tries to overcome his shyness by coming on (too strong) to girls. Which sort-of works but becomes an unwanted behavior in itself (if you ask Lum .... or any other girls in Tomobiki-cho).

Master and warlord ain't the same thing. :P
Two people can be both.

Anyway, let's keep it ontopic, because I have a new question:
If Ataru saw Lum the way she is in my pic, how do you think he would react? :P
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: oni on October 06, 2008, 09:27:00 PM
a)  Look  away  and  tell  her  to  put  her  top  on  wille  blushing.
b)  Act  on  his  natural  istings.
c)  Run  tuerce  the  firts  pretty  girl  he  sees.
d)  He  would  innore  the  fact  she  is  topless  because  he  have  seen  it  before.

Ataru would react differently if they were alone or not. If they were alone Ataru wouldn't resist to her body. If they weren't alone, Ataru would hide her breasts from people.

I'll go with a) Look  away  and  tell  her  to  put  her  top  on  wille  blushing. but screaming at her at same time... XD

Act on his natural instincts is technically the right answer. Cuz his natural instincts imply what he would naturally do in that situation.

ie if the answer was a) then his natural instincts would be the same outcome as a)

Natural instincts... if its a man natural instinct... it wont be the same as a) ... ;D
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: UruseiNeo on October 07, 2008, 12:58:58 AM
No I mean his natural instincts in reply to topless Lum would be "Look  away  and  tell  her  to  put  her  top  on  wille  blushing."

On a side note, I wanna point out that Ataru has never blushed, I don't think
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: dak on October 07, 2008, 04:11:34 AM
i chose a)
and refresh your memory,UruseiNeo, he blushed once before
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: UruseiNeo on October 07, 2008, 04:53:35 AM
when? I forget... He doesn't blush often, I know that.

Wasn't it when her Daddy came to stay with her at the Moroboshi house?

Ataru doesn't blush?!?!?!?! Are you blind?!?! Of course he does. But he only blushes when he's alone with Lum thinking about their relationship and stuff.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: Kroptik on October 08, 2008, 02:25:44 AM
Yeah, I'd go with a) too... xD

I'd probably do the same too. :S
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: UruseiNeo on October 08, 2008, 03:12:55 AM
I think when I said Ataru doesn't blush, I was thinking about scenes like hmm... involving Lum naked or about to be naked or...

there was one scene where he was gonna take a bath and he had previously asked Lum if she could scrub his back or something (PAUSE, this was to tick off Megane during that movie episode... the one Megane was in charge of).

Now, I don't think he blushed but he DEFINITELY freaked out when Lum said she thought they were gonna take the bath together XD

Anyways, as far as the (so far only) example of Ataru blushing; that involved a situation that was a step further than nudity.

Well... I guess Ataru instead of blushing... just screams and starts yelling... to hide his embarrassment... but does occasionally blush... I now I have seen it I just don't remember... And I'm sure I'm not going to watch the complete series to find it out...

How About A Chibi Ataru?
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on December 06, 2008, 11:58:17 AM
We've seen so many and most people find Ataru ugly but they can't find a Chibi Ataru not cute.
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: dak on December 08, 2008, 02:34:49 AM

btw who said Ataru is ugly?
Title: Re: ataru!!
Post by: cata on December 09, 2008, 10:26:42 PM
UY characters. xD

Mendo = handsome
Ataru = ugly

This is how things "work" in UY

It depends what he means by chibi... Chibi Ataru we see in the anime series... or Chibi Ataru... Super deformed style... In English-speaking anime fandom (otaku), the term chibi has mostly been conflated with the term super deformed.

Ex: (http://theshenanigans.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/chibi_overdose.jpg)

Chibi Characters Or Super Deformed... or SD

I guess both of Chibi "Atarus" look cute, whether you're refering to deformed characters or Ataru as a kid.

Ataru has wonderful recovering power and un-death body.

But even though he had un-dead body, but he still feels painful of being zapped. Because his un-dead body, he must suffer unlimited zapping with high voltage by Lum day by day until his natural death.

Wouldn't he be immune to pain if he really had an undead body?

I know that Ataru may look like a zombie but I don't think he is truly undead

He is just a man that is quite hard to kill
