What are you talking about? You explained, I discussed, you re-explained and I think that was the end of the conversation. There's no need to react to something just because it happened. We could and should react to something if it's somehow important or interesting enough to react to it.

I thought that was the point of a forum.

Spamming or discussion things that are worth to be discussing about? What the heck do you want me to say about your reaction? Oo

Honestly if someone is new to UY then they really should watch the series for a while before watching any of the movies.
But if you have to start with a movie then "Only You" is the one to watch.
Most UY movies are not much like the series at all. They try too hard to be serious and there isn't much that is serious about UY to begin with.
The Movies are great for fans of the series and even with that they can sometimes be difficult to understand.

IMO i wouldn't really rec any UY movie ,because one could enjoy a whole lot more if they watched(or read) the series 1st. But if i have to pick a movie i would go with the 6th one always my darling ,because its not really a major movie :X

ur right foxhead556 people should start with the movies first, becuz it just confusing, they will understan that ataru is getting married but they wont know why lum is trying to stop him from getting married to elle(i think that her name, havent watch it in a while).. to me they should start with the first episode becuz it tells them whats going on. it better and then they can watch the movie.8)

I have to agree with many of the others on here that I wouldn't show any UY movie to someone unfamiliar with the series.  I let the people I've introduced the series get thru the introduction of the main characters before I hit em with the movies.

Only You is still my all-time favorite animated film, with Remember My Love (#3) a close second.  I have some serious plans for Ruu's return to 1980's Tomobiki in my Final Urusei Yatsura Season scripts.  Of course when he does return, he's aged several years, and has already met someone who's replaced his earlier feelings for Lum.

The only movie I've watched is the trailer for Only You, and the first few minutes (in badly dubbed English), and I'm already scared to watch the movies now. Especially that part where Lum turns into the Savage She-Hulk!

if possible, watch Urusei Yatsura in Japanse dub with English subs. The experience will be so much better, imho.

The question is if it IS possible. I've tried finding Only You online somewhere in Japanese with English subtitles, but have had no luck so far. I have watched so many of the TV episodes in Japanese with English subtitles that I don't think I can stand to watch UY English-dubbed. Partly because of what little I've seen, they just seem like bad dubbing jobs to me, but probably mostly because now I can't imagine anyone else but Fumi Hirano voiceing the character of Lum. I love the sound of her voice!
