Urusei Yatsura (うる星やつら?) is a manga series by Rumiko Takahashi that was later adapted into an anime series. The series was adapted by Kitty Films into a 195 episode TV series that aired from October 14, 1981 to March 1986 on Fuji Television. With the exception of episodes 10 and 11, the first 21 episodes were composed of two stories. The series aired on October 14, 1981 with the two part episode "I'm Lum the Notorious!" / "It's Raining Oil All Over Town". The first 106 episodes were directed by Mamoru Oshii and the remainder by Kazuo Yamazaki. Urusei Yatsura concluded about five years later on March 19, 1986 with the 195th episode "All-Star Banquet! We Are Immortal!!". Episode 194 "Urusei Yatsura Pre-Departure Special! Shine!" is a repeat of episode 44 "After You've Gone" with a special introduction and best episode countdown before the episode.

On December 10, 1983, the first VHS release of the series was made available in Japan. The series was also released on fifty Laserdiscs. Another VHS release across fifty cassettes began on March 17, 1998 and concluded on April 19, 2000. Two DVD boxsets of the series were released between December 8, 2000 and March 9, 2001. These were followed by fifty individual volumes between August 24, 2001 and August 23, 2002.
During 1992, the series was licensed for a North American release by AnimEigo. Their VHS release began in October of the same year and was among the first anime titles to receive a subtitled North American release. However the release schedule was erratic. AnimEigo later released the series on DVD. The series was available in box set form as well as individual releases. A total of 10 boxsets and 50 individual DVDs were released between March 27, 2001 and June 20, 2006. Each DVD and VHS contained Liner notes explaining the cultural references and puns from the series. In February 2011 AnimEigo announced that it would not renew their license to the series and that their DVDs would fall out of print on September 30, 2011. A fan group known as "Lum's Stormtroopers" convinced the Californian public television station KTEH to broadcast subtitled episodes of the series in 1998.
