Nah... not related Cata... LoL

That is what should be done to those guys...
"It is said that only a fool learns from his own mistakes, a wise man from the mistakes of others."-"A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing."
I wonder which one is true!?

Considering the format of UY, I don't see a problem with the ending. Urusei Yatsura, both the manga and the anime, followed more of a "Gag of the week" format than modern anime does. With modern anime, you have storylines that span over several episodes, some over entire seasons, and everything fits together. UY is more like the old school cartoons where, as long as you're familiar with the characters, each story is generally self-contained, where you don't have to watch a whole bunch of episodes just to understand what's going on.

However, I voted "I could do better". After all, if I didn't think I could do better, why would I be working on a reimagining of the entire series?
Excuse me, have you seen my mind? I seem to have misplaced it...

I feel sad that I'm the only one so far who voted "Yes, (I liked the ending)" T_T

It's just... I just find it kinda ironic that on a site dedicated to Urusei Yatsura, a majority of people didn't seem to like the ending, lol.

At least no one picked flat out "no" although... "really disappointing" is kinda worse...

Speaking of your UY stories, Sidzero, how are they coming along?

I'm about halfway done writing the first chapter. After taking a little break from writing on it a while back, I actually picked up again last night and got quite a bit done. As long as video games, school, or the other 3 books I'm in various stages of writing don't distract my attention too much, I should have the first chapter done before long. Maybe in the next night or three, even.

Then it just becomes a question of whether or not to post it, or wait until I get the first story arc (which equates to chapters 1 and 3 of the manga, or both parts of episode 1 of the anime, and is going to be 5 or 6 chapters in UYRemix) finished before I post it.


Actually, by the looks of things, I'll have the rough draft of chapter 1 done within the next hour or three. I think I'll probably post this rough to get some early comments and criticisms, and then wait until I finish the first arc before I post the rest of it in a finished state.

I don't care if you consider as the "last episode" of UY "Boy Meets Girl" or "Forever my Darling": I DISAPPOINT BOTH THE FINALS !!!

That's why I begun to draw "A new beginning from the end".

I'm so mad, so crazy, so out of mind that one day I'll send it to "Shoen Sunday".

Who knows..... the men are great as their dreams !!

lol, cata!! Send your idea to Rumiko by mail and hope for the best. That¨s'a nice idea^^ Of course some easter eggs around would be welcome to, like some idiotic monk jokes from cherry etc.

Thank you ammo1991 but I'm afraid UY is (unfortunately) an ended chapter of Rumiko's life. It's sad how people throw brilliant stuff away. Also, of course Cherry's jokes, Sakura's inability to understand teens, Ryu's dream of wearing a dress, etc wouldn't be left out from "my" episode.

Episode 195 was not so bad,it had its enjoyable moments (the kiss between Lum and Ataru been the most memorable of those moments),but the problem was that,according to the manga,the producers used one of the early chapters for the material for this episode

Well,at least Movie 5 delivered the true ending to the saga

That's true, but the fact is, fans of the show who already read that chapter would have been caught completely off guard with that scene.

They would be watching the episode thinking "this is it? this is the last episode? what a rip off, this chapter wasn't so great, they could have used this chapter or that chapter" and then they eat their words with that one scene.

It's kinda like the SOS Brigade final episode (episode 13 if you count the first as episode 0). They dragged that thing on forever, it was so annoying. Yuki just sitting their reading a book... but the later ending scenes were decent enough to forgive that boring periods. That... or they tricked us, made us watch boring reading scenes to make the last scene look like a freaking masterpiece.

Aye,you are right,Neo,in the end that UY episode had more good things than flaws

It was good to see most of the UY characters by the end of episode 195 (we even got a cameo of Kyoko from Maison Ikkoku),a very nostalgic touch if we add that the producers used the first ending song for that scene

not bad  but it needed more emotion.
and i just realized they didn't take several manga chapters into anime, shame, i wish someday they animate them.
