What, the early parts of his story aren't a part of his story? Just because you write them off because they don't fit with what you want them to be doesn't mean they don't count.

If you dislike his early story so much, why don't you rewrite the whole series then, huh?
Excuse me, have you seen my mind? I seem to have misplaced it...

At what point did I say "the first few episodes suck a**" huh?

seriously, wtf? All I meant was during the first chapters, Rumiko Takahashi probably didn't have a full development of his character planned. That being said, there's no way to be sure what kind of character he was at that time.

Try thinking realistically instead of misrepresenting my words.

LoL... Here we go again... ;D

I wonder which one is true!?

I'm not even going to bother. It's not even worth arguing with this kid anymore.  }:|

XD c'mon, seriously though. My point is that Rumiko could have had a different vision in mind for Ataru.

Need I remind everyone that Lum was a character that wasn't originally intended to stay in the series? (surprising as it may be) I believe she was kept by popular demand. If Rumiko changed that aspect, imagine what she may have changed with Ataru?

Ever since I read that Lum wasn't meant to stay for too long that I've been wondering what her original idea was. I wish I could ask Rumiko. :P
Signatured postponed until I cba to make a new one. x.x

I think her original idea was to just tell the story of the unluckiest boy in the world. At least that's the impression I get from the first few chapters of the manga. I think her originally intended cast of characters was Ataru, Shinobu and Cherry. I don't think she expected it to be as popular as it did, when I compare it to some of her other works of the time. I also think that the only reason it became so popular was because of Lum.

But yeah, those are just my impressions.

If that is true, then it would be logical that no indications (or at least no great amounts) of pervertedness existed at the beginning, which is what I was trying to say before.

There isn't, if you discount the behaviour of any typical horny teenage boy.
