Now , you might have heard that this movie is very surreal ; in that , you'd be right . Some people also list this as being the worst UY movie .. definetly NOT right !! I loved every moment of it , but beleive me , you have to keep track of what's going on .. or you could just sit back and think "ahh well , I'll enjoy it anyway" .. both are fun :) ... it's fun to come up with theories of what exactly it's about , but even without seeing the bigger picture , it is a very , VERY good movie . The animation is vurrah vurrah good (Mendou-sama looked especially cute in it :) , the music is as spiffy as ever (everyone must listen to Melancholy no Kiseki , the ED !!) , and the story was very interesting , even if it didn't capture the same fun charm as , say , UY movie 1 did .. that's the one thing . Though the movie is fun , it's not fun in a way that'll have you rolling on the ground crying with laughter .. it's fun to see our favorite Urusei Yatsura characters doing something remotly serious for once , it's fun to see Mendou at his empire-commanding greatest (and a chance to see the Mizunokouji characters , seeing as Animego are being SLOW at releasing the TV series , and heck knows if they're even being released here) , it's fun to see the cast trying to make their movie for the school project ... but there's nothing really "HA HA HA HA HAAAAH !! OH I'M GONNA GET A STITCH !!" in here ... but that's not a bad thing !! Sometimes , serious is good , y'know ?? I think that Shinobou put it best after having her freaky dream in Mendou's car : " Ohhh , I just don't know what's going on anymore !! "
Oh yes , I loved this movie .. and so will most other UY fans .. but if you've never seen UY before , you're going to be very .. VERY .. confused .. :)
