Urusei Yatsura – 165

うる星やつら episode 165 (TV anime)
Urusei Yatsura Ep. 165 review

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Urusei Yatsura - 165Ran is sick and running a fever but can’t help but recall previous times when she was sick and Lum came by to visit her, making things worse.  There was the time when Lum brought a flower over and a toy robot, where the robot and flower ended up doing major battle on Ran’s bed. Then there was another time when Lum had Oyuki come over to cool Ran’s fever, only to have Ran literally put in ice. Each time Ran thinks of Lum, Lum starts sneezing, causing Shuutaro to wonder if Lum has a cold. Ataru thinks this is impossible and that someone must be talking about Lum, which she can’t fathom. However, Ataru’s continued talk gets him punished. Meanwhile, Ran is feeling lonely and after failing to contact Benten and Oyuki, she calls Lum, only to get angry at Lum’s apparent lack of concern over Ran’s condition.

Urusei Yatsura - 165While running on the track, Ran sends a bunch of mini-Ran dolls, all repeating a message about Lum not needing to visit her. Lum sees the trick and escapes as the boys get caught in the explosion. Onsen-sensei gets caught in the next explosion when Lum sends more dolls. Lum pays Ran a visit but gets nailed with SAMs. However, Ran lets her in, but Lum messes up making food, causing Ran to make it. Lum tries to build a doctor robot, but it explodes. Lum tries to do Ran’s laundry but the washer explodes. Each incident makes Ran worse, causing her to collapse. Lum stays the night with Ran and in the morning, Ran feels better. Lum is making breakfast, but that explodes. Ran finds herself no longer angry, realizing that Lum never meant for these bad things to happen.


There’s some humor here with the very obvious “fail” jokes. I was surprised that Lum got hit with Ran’s missile barrage but the other items Lum touched exploding (including the Ran dolls) were not a surprise.

One of the two funniest things were Ataru annoying Lum (and getting punished).

And the toy robot losing a fight to a flower was pretty funny.

That was so absurd, it became funny.

Otherwise, not much to speak of here.

    This was something lots of us grew up watching or reading. I’m sad more people don’t remember it.

    Well, that’s because its old. ^_^; I wrote a piece on classic anime but I know that it mostly isn’t appealing to the modern (and younger) viewer.
