Description: The past two movies were
just warmups. This time, Ataru finds himself...
It seems that when Lum was born, a postal screwup
resulted in a witchy friend of the family not getting an
invitation to the celebration. The witch put a curse on
Lum-- that she would never be happy with her True Love.
In the present, a new Amusement Park has been built
in Tomobiki, and opening day finds the whole gang
sampling its pleasures. At a magic show, however, Ataru
gets turned into a large pink hippo-potamus-- FOR REAL!
When Lum attempts to track down the magician that
transformed her Darling, things start to get very weird,

Episodes reviewed: Movie,
|| Urusei Yatsura 3: Remember My Love is
well-executed, high-quality, comedy fantasy adventure, with
very good music, highly recommended. It is my personal
favorite of the Urusei Yatsura movies.
This film has all the slapstick comedy and all the stock
characters one expects from an Urusei Yatsura movie. It
also has much the same dreamlike quality of the second and
fourth movies, but it is better plotted and more
comprehensible than either one.
It is the story of a terrible curse, of a scheme of love
and revenge spanning centuries of time and light-years of
space. This scheme produces a fantastic, otherworldly,
sinister carnival, where Ataru and his friends find themselves
confronting their inner desires and fears. The scheme
culminates with the transformation of Ataru (into a pink
hippopotamus) and the disappearance of Lum. The rest of the
movie deals with the unexpected effects of Lum's absence, and
the quest to get her back.
