Season 2 of the new Urusei Yatsura anime will start airing in 2024. The announcement tweet featured Lum winking at the viewer while she’s wearing a school uniform. There are sakura blossoms floating around her as well. It is unclear if this is just an innocuous key visual or if this is meant to be a hint that viewers can expect to see Urusei Yatsura season 2 in Spring 2024. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]
Urusei Yatsura was originally a manga series by Rumiko Takahashi (the creator of works such as Ranma ½ and Inuyasha). It ran from 1978 to 1987. The original anime series for it stated in 1981 and the reboot for it debuted in 2022. In it, Ataru is a human and Lum is part of an alien race of Oni. In order to protect Earth from the Oni’s invasion, Ataru must touch Lum’s horns before the week is up, which he succeeds at. However, due to some misunderstandings, Lum believes that Ataru proposed to her at the end of the competition and moved into his house.
Like some of Takahashi’s other works, Urusei Yatsura is a romantic comedy with slapstick elements. The 2022 remake of the anime keeps her signature art style but with more modern colors and shading. Though some of the original actors are still in the industry, the new show has more or less replaced the entire cast as well.
Urusei Yatsura season 2 will start airing some time in 2024.
