Hiroshi Kamiya, who voices Atari, issued a statement “I was happy to be a part of Urusei Yatsura, which I love! I’m grateful to everyone who was involved in the series! And Ataru, thank you so much! Ah! It was fun!” His co-star, Sumire Uesaka who voices Lum, also had a similar thing to say: “I am truly, truly happy to have been able to play Lum for four seasons! I’m so happy! I’m sad that it’s coming to an end, but I am once again honored to have had the opportunity to play my beloved Lum all the way through ‘Boy Meets Girl’.

Urusei Yatsura is based on a romantic comedy manga by Rumiko Takahashi, serialized from September 1978 until February 1987. The first anime adaptation had 195 episodes and aired from October 1981 to March 1986. It was animated by Studio DEEN and Pierrot.

Viz Media is publishing the Urusei Yatsura manga in English and describes the plot as:
In a high-stakes game of tag, Ataru must touch Lum’s horns in ten days—or aliens will take over the earth! The fact that Lum can fly doesn’t make Ataru’s job any easier. As it turns out, the game of tag is only the beginning of Ataru’s troubles, as he continues to attract strange encounters with otherworldly beings like beautiful snow spirit Oyuki and the sexy crow goblin Princess Kurama!
