It not his fear, i sure.

In an episode about fake date, a trap Megane had set for Ataru( don't remember what this episode's name, damn) he say that he love her.

I think he afraid of be tied up with a girl and live in a world without beautiful women.
The only person Lum love is Ataru.
Only thing i can do is watch over her from darkness.

In episode 3 of the TV series, Ataru counts off the things he's afraid of. According to the American-English subtitles, they are: Earthquakes, Lightning, Fires, (and) Girls. I can't pick-up spoken nihongo just yet or I'd be more sure of what he actually says ....

(researching this forced me to go back and watch that old episode ... thanks!  ;D)

Sorry but what do you mean with Ataru being afraid of girls? =S

That's something Ataru said himself in episode 2 or 3

Well ... he was cowering under the desk in his bedroom while a lightning storm raged just outside (and Lum was perched on the sill of the open window next to the desk) when he said it ... so he may have been a little distracted.

I think he said it without really thinking about what he was saying.

I don't think he's afraid of girls. Notice that when he says "girls" he completely forgets about the lightningstorm, so I think he includes girls in his fear list to give him back some courage.
Signatured postponed until I cba to make a new one. x.x

Nice thinking Kroptik. When I'm scared I try to think about anything else to calm myself down. So it could definetely Ataru's case.

I disagree. I think it's a "Freudian Slip" for Ataru. I think he's afraid of Girls (at least at this point in the storyline) ...

Afraid of Girls ... or afraid of what Girls represent to him (whatever that might be).

His fears? uhm, let's see:


I'm not sure about earthquake but i sure he no longer afraid of lightning, fire, and girls.

here is proof about lightning:





and these ones are about fire:





If he still afraid of fire, he is roasted walking corse now

And if he afraid of girls, }) }) }), no girls, no harem, and his dream hit the dead end.
The only person Lum love is Ataru.

Amusing.  :)  However, I remain unconvinced.

Ataru is afraid of girls or whatever "girls" represent to him: success, failure, rejection, adulthood, responsibility .... His reaction to such things is Overcompensation (he leaps to his balcony railing and proclaims "I'm not afraid of anything!" at the top of his lungs).

I consider this to be key to understanding his personality.  ;D

No offense.

Let's face it. He became stronger towards electricty and fire. There's no doubts about that. Everyone knows that his life changed completely on the day that he met Lum for the first time. Aliens, insane monks, demons, etc. Maybe he just panicked and flipped out and yelled everything that came to his mind when he was feeling trapped. Fire, electricity - fears. Girls - dreams. I have had a few experiences that I could have died then and the only thing that came to my mind was a person. In his case I don't think he was already in love with Lum so he was not in love so he just thought about every attractive young lady that came up to his mind at that time.
