Hello Folks,

I like this Lum character but haven't seen any of the films
I have only budget for one DVD, so my simple question is: which is the best film?(simple to ask, difficult to answer probably)

Urusei Yatsura: Movie 1 - Only You
Urusei Yatsura: Movie 2 - Beautiful Dreamer
Urusei Yatsura: Movie 3 - Remember My Love
Urusei Yatsura: Movie 4 - Lum The Forever
Urusei Yatsura: Movie 5 - The Final Chapter

I've created a poll for you to have it a bit easier

The first and third are the best. The way Only You is drawn slightly annoying, especially the close-ups of some of the characters, but overall I think it's the best UY film. Remember My Love is the best drawn of all of them, and is almost as good as the first one. The last 3 minutes of the film is my all-time favourite moment in movie history.

For my part, I've never understood all the ravings about Beautiful Dreamer. It has few great scenes (especially the ending is great), but as a whole, it's not much of a movie. The basic concept of it has been done a million times since, in all kinds of movies, and much like the fourth movie, it gets too caught up in trying to tell a serious story and as a whole the movie just didn't do anything for me.

The Final Chapter is absolutely amazing, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen most of the series and isn't familiar with all the main characters.

I chosed Only You because the storie goes way before Ataru and Lum relation and like Sakura we found out that "...in all Universe there is someone whit the same bad taste for manhas Lum..." or something like that :P

I chose Beautiful Dreamer, because it contains humoristic elements (as first UY episodes) and introspective elements (as later UY eps).
And more, it's a great movie made by a great director.

I would start by watching the series but Beautiful Dreamer can caught anyone's attention.

I would raccomend Only You to someone new to UY. Movies 2, 3, 4 require a deeper knowledge of the series/characters to be fully appreciated, and movie 5 is the ending :&

Remember My Love (M3) is the most cosmetically appealing of them all. That's why it gets my vote =3

I really hated M5 because of how they drew the characters. It really spoiled an otherwise excellent film.

But seriously now, just get the manga off BoxTorrents. Then you don't need to worry about the plot of the movies, or long/expansive downloads.

If you aren't hooked on Lum after having seen M3, then what are you? O.o;;

I would have to recommend Only You

This movie provides the best example of Lum and Ataru's relationship, although i do believe that in the movie Rei should have been fighting Ataru every step of the way (just like in the series), this would have made it funnier and a better example of the life of UY
This is Jenga lol :)

I would have to agree that the best way is to start from the beginning. Its no fun to watch a movie and have no idea whats going on!
LONG LIVE LUM <3

Although Beautiful Dreamer is my favorite of the UY movies, I would recommend Only You to those who are new to UY because, like Forgotten said, it provides the best example of Lum and Ataru's relationship. The scene where Lum tries to save Ataru while piloting an unstable ship is so touching. :)

Movie 1 Only One is the best movie for those who doesn't have a good knowledge about the anime. I recommend the new fans to watch the episodes first, then the Ova's and finnaly the movies.
