Status: Partially Found


Urusei Yatsura was a Japanese anime comedy that aired for 195 episodes between 1981 and 1986 in Japan. Three English dubs are known to be in existence, two of which were aborted very quickly. AnimEigo's dub of the series released on North American VHS only lasted two episodes due to being critically panned, while a later dub by the BBC dubbed only episodes 1 and 3 as part of a special "Japan Night" event on BBC Choice (now BBC Three) in 2000.

However, a full English dub of all 195 episodes is believed to have aired on Animax Asia under the title Alien Musibat. The exact dates that the dub was aired are unknown, and all that exists of it online comes from episode 27 and some clips of episode 33. (Episode 27 has been split into short clips by some YouTubers, while uploaded in full by another.) These clips/the full episode reveal that the character "Lum" was referred to as "Lamu" in the Animax dub.

Anime News Network claims to have a dub cast list for the Animax dub; however, their sources are questionable, as they seem to have come from the same user with descriptions such as "Recognized her voice", "watched anime", broken links, etc.
