In commemoration of publisher Shogakukan’s 100th Anniversary, Rumiko Takashi‘s comedic manga Urusei Yatsura is slated for a brand new anime debut this year since its first adaptation directed by Ghost in the Shell‘s director Mamoru Oshii in the 1980s.

Urusei Yatsura follows the story of the alien Princess Lum and human Ataru Moroboshi after Lum misinterprets Ataru’s proposal meant for his girlfriend, Shinobu Miyake. Along with the teased visuals of the main characters, their voice casts have been revealed to be Sumire Uesaka, who voiced Nagatoro in DON’T TOY WITH ME, MISS NAGATORO, and Hiroshi Kamiya, who voiced Levi in Attack on Titan.

Produced by David Production with notable works such as Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure and Fire Force, the new series is directed by Hideya Takahashi and Yasuhiro Kimura, who previously worked on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. Joining the jam-packed production team are The Aquatope on White Sand‘s screenwriter Yuko Kakihara and Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!‘s character designer Naoyuki Asano.

Stay tuned for more on the premiere of the new anime adaptation of Urusei Yatsura.
