Urusei Yatsura is an iconic romanctic-comedy manga series by Rumiko Takahashi, the manga artist who created Inuyasha and Ranma ½. Takahashi’s manga ran from 1978 to 1987 on Weekly Shōnen Sunday, and it received an anime series adaptation which aired from 1981 to 1986.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the story, Urusei Yatsura follows Ataru Moroboshi, a lecherous high school student, and Lum, a beautiful alien of the Oni race. Ataru is chosen to defend the earth from the Oni invasion in a game of tag with Lum. If he wins, the Earth is saved. While Ataru does manage to win, his celebration is misinterpreted by Lum as a marriage proposal.
