Rumiko Takahashi, also known as the author of Inuyasha and MAO series, serialized the Urusei Yatsura manga in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine with a total of 34 volumes. The work inspired a TV anime adaptation from 1981 to 1986.
Viz Media licensed the manga for English releases and describes the plot of Volume 1 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!
