As previously reported, Sumire Uesaka (Nagatoro in DON’T TOY WITH ME, MISS NAGATORO) will be voicing Lum, and Hiroshi Kamiya (Levi in Attack on Titan) will be voicing Ataru.

The new Urusei Yatsura anime is being directed by Hideya Takahashi (Keijo!!!!!!!!) and Yasuhiro Kimura (2.43: Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team), with Yuko Kakihara (The aquatope on white sand) on series composition and Naoyuki Asano (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!) on character designs at david production (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure).

The Urusei Yatsura manga ran from 1978 to 1987, and was adapted into a 195-episode TV anime that aired in Japan from 1981 to 1986. Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii helmed the first 106 episodes of the anime and the first two of six films that were produced. The series also had 12 OVAs released after the end of the TV anime.

VIZ Media publishes the manga in English and describes it:

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!
