Yeah, I know, I'm just speaking for me. Like I'm so shy that people sometimes don't notice I'm in a room.


Shy girls can sometimes appear to be unapproachable. They don't always look shy even if inside they are.
I'm shy around girls and really don't ask them out unless they show an interest first.
Of course now I'm married and they have to get my wife's permission before they ask.  ;)

Urusei Yatsura hasn't really changed my real life, but it has given me an open eye to another type of anime. And I love it.

I lived overseas for years and many girls there are very shy and they can appear unapproachable or angry.
If you want to fix that just smile nicely and even if you are shy, people will be able to figure it out a bit more
easily.

Yep, it's as simple as that. Kinda back to the main topic though, she's really changed my life by teaching me how to work on my character. I've tried thinking about if I'm in common with her, but not so much. And don't get me wrong. It's not that I wanna be her or anything, but I admire her xD

I think we all learn some things from Anime that improve our personality and/or way of seeing things. I became a lot more determined about playing football without caring about my gender (football is for boys!) after watching Ataru fighting desperately for his girl-hunt and sometimes to save Lum.

Then, I got even more determined and confident about chasing my dreams and making them come true after I saw One Piece's Luffy. He's not my favourite character and he's far from it but the way he always yells his lungs out "ORE WA KAIZOKU OU OTOKO DA!!!!!!!!!!!", makes me keep walking forward when things or people are pulling me back from Law school. =)

I got into Urusei Yatsura in the mid 90's. Back then in Australia, it was very hard to come by any manga or anime here, and when you did it was very expensive.  I first saw it in an issue of Animerica. I'm not sure how my friend came by it, but I love the story in that issue and decided to research it more. I happend to read one of the most popular issues of that manga I later found out, it was the one where Lum disappears and Ataru is heart broken when he thinks she actually left him for good this time (turns out she was renewing her passport).

I managed to collect a couple of videos and saw the movies, although it took a while to get my hands on them.  The original "Lum" series was actually bound, not stapled, and I manged to get a few of those, after that I started collecting the "Return of Lum" graphic novels.

It sparked my interest in other Takahashi series like Ranma, and eventually other anime. Then, after that, the wider Japanese culture.  After I graduated from University, I decided to go to Japan and joined the Nova program. Something I got sick of very quickly, ad soon became a English Elementary/Junior High Public School teacher. I meant the girl who would become my wife when she was a university student, and stayed there for 7 years in total, after that, we moved back to my home town of Canberra in Australia. I also ended up taking my wife's name of "Yoshimura" as well, as she is an only child.

So in a round about way, Lum had a huge effect of my life. I'm still very fond of it and will watch it every now and again and read the graphic novels.  I also have a quite a big (at least for an Australian) collection of Lum Chan related products.

I was also lucky enough to be over there when they held an exhibition in Ginza and saw some of the original drawing by Takahashi.

I also used one of the images as my wedding invitation :)

Wow. Just wow. THAT is the full-blown Fairy Tale come true! Good for you, tomorrowist, and thank you for sharing that with us.

Was the exhibition in Ginza in 2008?

Yep, that's the one! It was really interesting. I got the book with all the artwork too which is amazing.  It also has a timeline of all the Takahashi Rumiko stories too, she is one hard working lady!  One of the most interesting things was her drawing of Lum. She hadn't done drawn her in about 20 years, and looks a bit different when she atempted it again, still Takahashi's style though. I'll have to dig around and see if I can find it.

Yeah, it's a really good book! Excellent art work, and fun to flip through. These pics are from the from cover, the most recent drawing that Takahashi did of Lum. More reminiscent of Inu Yasha than her early work.

Yeah, same here.
Before UY, I've been watching more recent anime series. After UY, I've been watching more 80's and 90's animes and noticed alot of newer animes using borrowed plots and characters from older animes.
Its like the Honeymooners and the Flintstones relationship~
