Hello darlings! We’re the #LumSquad, a podcast hosted by @LumRanmaYasha and @ProdTally devoted to the wonderful and wacky world of Rumiko Takahashi’s Urusei Yatsura!

    #LumSquad #03: "The Return of Lum Squad!"

    #LumSquad #03: "The Return of Lum Squad!"

    Hello, darlings! Welcome to the return of our Urusei Yatsura podcast, Lum Squad! Well, technically we already returned in last month’s episode, but there was actually a year-long break in between  recording that and this episode! Think of it as like how there was a break between Viz’s original publication of “Lum” that prompted their continuation being re-titled “The Return of Lum.” Except we’re not re-titling this podcast; it didn’t work in the 90’s and it ain’t happening now.

    Anyways, because it’d been so long since AC and I recorded the show, we decided to spend this episode going through all the UY volumes Viz has released in the past year and share our thoughts on them! We discuss our favorite chapters, characters, the translation, lettering, and pretty much everything! Oh, and you KNOW we ranted about the whole “Hot Springs Emblem” situation. I really hope Viz reconsiders that name…

    Afterward, we dive into the Urusei Yatsura fan community, exploring its history and current state now! Look forward to our next episode where we’ll dive into our experiences collecting Urusei Yatsura merch and memorabilia!

    Oh, and of course, if you haven’t heard the news that Discotek has relicensed the Urusei Yatsura movies and plans to release them on streaming and blu-ray later this year – yeah, that’s happening! We’re more than excited and looking forward to discussing the new and the films in future episodes!

    #LumSquad #02: "Lum: The Animated Series!"

    Hello, darlings! Welcome back to #LumSquad, a podcast hosted by @LumRanmaYasha and @ProdTally devoted to the wonderful and wacky world of Rumiko Takahashi’s Urusei Yatsura!

    Since we covered the manga on our first episode, for our second installment we’re diving deep into the anime! We explore the anime’s production history, how the show changes over its run, the incredible production staff and vocal talent on the show, and tons more! Plus, we rant about Mamoru Oshii’s influence and question common assertions made about the show’s quality, while sharing some thoughts on the show’s eclectic musical score. To top it off, we answer a ton of fan questions, and talk about our favorite episodes of the show! All in all, we spend two and a half hours discussing the anime, and we’ve barely even scratched the surface of stuff we plan to cover in future episodes!

    In our inaugural episode, we introduce ourselves, our history with the series, and our thoughts on the first volume of Viz Media’s new omnibus editions of the series! Plus, we analyze the complicated character of the lecherous simpleton Ataru Moroboshi, and answer a ton of Q&As, including what episodes we’d recommend to newcomers and how…”effable” is Mendou! Let’s put weird and weird together, because space is super weird, and we’re going to talk about it!
