Viz Media announced at its Comic-Con International: San Diego panel on Thursday that it has licensed Rumiko Takahashi's Urusei Yatsuramanga. Viz Media will begin releasing the manga in 2-in-1 omnibus editions in spring 2019. The books will have new translations. Viz describes the series: Revisit the acclaimed romantic comedy about an unlucky human boy who meets a beautiful space alien princess in this large trim size edition with all-new translations and new cover designs. In the series, Ataru Moroboshi's supernatural encounters with the feminine kind all start when he's chosen to play tag with an alien princess named Lum who invades the earth on her UFO. Ataru has ten days to touch Lum's horns or aliens will take over the earth! 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! This year marks the 40th anniversary of the series, which ran in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine from 1978 to 1987. Viz Media previously released part of the series in English under the titles Lum and The Return of Lum in the 1990s. The manga inspired a television anime series in 1981, various anime films, and an original video anime (OVA) series.
