they said that even if I'm quite good, I'm too old to start a career, so I was resigned to quit it there...

I'm confused. What? I never knew there was an age limit for that. I always assumed it depended on your voice type or characters you were voicing.

But either way, don't give up!!! Go forward always.

It's UY Eve!

Tomorrow, October 13th, 2022, may be the luckiest day of the year for those of us charmed by Urusei Yatsura to see the return of our dearest Lum-chan!

What will tomorrow bring? Will we be thrilled? Will we be enchanted again? Will the new creators care and continue the sacred work of revealing our celestial visitor as delightful and endearing? If only tomorrow would bring such joy and happiness that Lumchan brings out in our hearts!

Now we can rejoin our friends in Tomobiki-cho in new adventures, new worlds. We can watch them as they develop, grow, and live.

I plead that tomorrow not be a pale reflection of the glorious past. Mimicking now familiar tales.  I hope these new creators' hearts are filled with that sense of wonder and appreciation of our Divine Visitor from Oni-boshi that give us episodes that boldly go further, farther and funnier than ever before. Let it be so!

Our hopes are answered!

Wow! Episode 1 of the new series is a must-see. Wonderful art, faithful storyline, and Lum is still so adorable (!!!)

I can't believe I could watch it the exact same day it premiered in Japan. AND, thanks to GoGoAnime, we have it already subtitled! (Oh, the days of VHS. So painful having to wait forever for new stuff and then try to figure out dialogue.)

It's a glorious day.

Well, there is no limit...if you already work as voice actor! But it seems it's a problem if you have not started yet...

Moroboshi-kun:  Thanks so much for the screen caps! They show what I like in the new series--keeping with the original storyline, but with a more refined look and fresh artwork. (Naturally, as the original was made for 12" TV screens vs. today's hi-def.) Tho I might quibble a tiny bit about changing her wonderful jade green hair color to this iridescent blue-green, it is still charming.

I'd love to have been a fly on the wall for that discussion. It must have been quite a debate. Not to lose us seasoned fans while evoking that same emotional delight in Lum that is essential for the new show's success.

Yes!! That's what I'm loving too in the new series. I love 80's animation but nowadays it's starting to look a bit weird especially on big screens. So to have an 80's anime remade with today's animation it just amazing.

Yeah the old color was great, but in the new series I'm loving the effect they added when she's discharging electricity  :mrgreen:

Totally. Imagine watching the crew agree on all that plus the seyuus working together (both the new ones and the old ones), etc. Must have been great!

BTW, speaking of old and new seyuus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOdwplKNdrw  :)

I don't know if it's recent but here's the original seiyūs giving their voice once again.

What's really interesting, I only checked the rest of the cast today, Toshio Furukawa and Fumi Hirano who voiced Ataru and Lum in the original series are now voicing Ataru's dad and Lum's mom respectively.

I think it's quite fitting xD

Thanks, Jataro! That's a great point--another fine example of the respect the current producers are displaying for the original. Bodes well for that new stories will also reflect the values and fun of the original.

A thing that I noticed but I didn't see anyone complain yet it's Lum's eye color, in the new series they are golden when in the original they are blue, quite the difference.

WOW! I congratulate you, Jataru! I totally missed that change. I guess I find her charming either way. (Otherwise I would definitely have noticed.)

Curiously enough, this isn't the first time Lum has had golden eyes. The full-size statue offered in January 2016 also has golden eyes:
