SPOILER Summary/Synopsis

Lum rides the elephant with the boy.

After spending the night with the boy at his jungle cabin, the boy refuses to let her leave as he’s decided to make her his bride. Lum decides that he will stay in order to make Ataru jealous. The next day, Lum comes to the school and opens a portal to the boy’s jungle. Ataru and Shinobu are compelled to chase Lum and the boy.

I remember the story that was told in Urusei Yatsura 26When I watched OG anime episode 192. The original manga story was taken from chapters 301-302, 303-304. Story-wise, the stories that show how Ataru cares for Lum are always the best.

Jungle Life

Shingo in Urusei Yatsura 26This is a tribute Tarzan. It is a pretty bizarre story. It’s true that the entire series was bizarre, but it is hard to argue with the fact that a boy grew up alone in a man-made, electrified forest on the Mendou estate. I get it was some weirdo vegetable experiment. Why the animals?

I liked seeing Lum dressed for her date with Ataru, despite the stupidity. I didn’t mention it in my review of the OG anime adaptation, but I did always wonder why Ataru would ask Lum on a date. Much like the jungle setting and Shingo’s jungle life, the date felt contrived for the sake of the story. Ataru went out on a date and even managed to land a girl. Still, Lum did look cute.

The purpose of the episode, however, was to create a story in which Ataru would become jealous and fight for Lum. And to be honest, while the humor did nothing for me, I did appreciate Ataru’s brief honesty in how he views Lum. Lum appreciated that. Takahashi Sensei, for the sakes of gags and comedy, never allowed the characters ever to grow. Tomorrow, Ataru returns back to normal.

Final Thoughts

The end is near Urusei Yatsura 26Does a whacked, TarzanParody to show Ataru’s care for Lum. It wasn’t funny to me, but I did enjoy the episode all the same.
