True,tecasian prince,but in Kuribayashi-sensei case he has a Lolita Syndrome as he likes a girl many years younger than him

It could hav been good 2 still hav seen Kuribayashi even when Onsen appeared

All I was thinking was "WTF is wrong with this episode?". Until I saw the ending that is (at first I thought Kuribayashi was dreaming or something...).

As Cosmic King wrote: "Indeed Kuribayashi-sensei liked Lum"

And in this episode, it's clear the writers and artists also wanted to show this relationship with some sympathy. It would have been way too easy to show him as an oaf and a buffoon, and have Lum make fun of him. But in the end, she still seems eager to give Sensei what he wants or asks for (hence ending up on the moon).

I still love this episode because:

1. Sensei is the only one to take Lum on a date--alone--and where she seems to actually be enjoying herself. Oh, if only I could do the same!
2. Lum writes a love note/invite to Sensei. (How I would treasure something she wrote, especially to me!)
3. Lum seems actually willing to have someone (other than Ataru) kiss her. (Oh, if only!!)
4. The artists really go all out portraying the romance of Lum.

For example, look at this shot:



This is only a single frame or two--but isn't she gorgeous??

or here:



or even better, here:



This, in the same season they are portraying her like this:



No question--they really put their hearts into Lum in this episode.

To continue, my fellow brothers-in-Lum, notice how sympathetic we see Sensei portrayed here:



I mean, look how incredibly beautiful Lum is. Sensei is shown doing exactly what I would do--sit stunned! (Doesn't she just melt your heart??)

The writers and artists could have made him a drolling idiot, as they have some of Lum's Guards at times. But no.

Instead, just as the thought of being with Lum fills me with such joy, such a thrill just to be alive, we see Sensei feel this exact same emotions:



This isn't just some overaged perv hitting on a young girl, not in my book, not at all. This is the thrill that it is knowing Lum, and the wonderful blossoming of happiness that comes just watching her. (The scene here of her bouncing on the fence is so sweet, so endearing, she seems so genuinely happy!)

Later, when Lum asks if he doesn't want to kiss her good night, he cries:



Again, it's a sensitive and sympathetic portrait--I'd be bawling my eyes out too if she asked me that, as I fell to my knees in gratitude and to honor her.

Here, Lum seems to be having a grand time on the date:



so even if she's doing this to please Ataru, she's having fun. (I so much want her to have fun!)

Look at her here:



look at that smile! She's  having a great time--and it isn't Ataru who's making her happy. This just gives me hope that I could too!

So I like to end this episode with this frame (rather than with the wall opening):



because this would be the ultimate moment, Lum, dearest, sweetest Lumu-sama, leaning over for a kiss from you. Oh, the heart melts! She is so beautiful, so divine, so tender and innocent!

Oh, to be there in Sensei's place--even with the humiliation--that will never take away those hours of joy together with her! Nor that fantastic moment to kiss her!

As always, she is my goddess, my queen, my love--Lum.
