Vol. 6 Highlights
This volume introduces Ryoko, the sadistic sister of Shutaro Mendo.
After a long hiatus away from the series, Tengu princess Kurama returns, hoping to get it on with Mendo.
It’s been a while, but Oyuki and Benten also return to Urusei Yatsura. From here on in, they become much more prominent characters.
As a change of pace, UY briefly becomes a 16th century period comedy. The cast innacurately reinacts the life story of legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi.
Lum’s father gets kicked out of the house, and invades Ataru’s home and school life
