A Quick Recap!

The seventh episode of Urusei Yatsura was a typical beach episode where the main cast appeared as bystanders to someone’s else story. Even fans didn’t get a chance to see Ataru in the opening scene getting beat up by his rival, nor Lum used a single bolt of lightning. But the anime dropped a rare comedy scene that actually worked in this episode. Instead of Lum or Ataru, Urusei Yatsura Episode 7 focused on a little blue demon named Pochi who seemed to live underwater. Well, fans felt bad for him. But his behavior had to blame for this. He didn’t want anyone to stay with him as he was bad at socializing.

Although his nature differed from the original cast, this contrast appeared pleasant in the show when all the main characters decided to mend. The way the episode concluded was strangely satisfying. Seeing how a little boy let go of his pet was quite depressing. Speaking about its punchline, it felt so awkward in the first place, but the out-of-left-field twist somehow matched the show’s tone. Further, it was thrilling to see the bond this kid made with an actual animal before he ended up losing it.
