HNNNGH FINALLY A STAMP FOR UY :heart:

I really enjoy the charm and colorfulness of this series. Some of the most amusing characters to come out of Takahashi.

Hey, I'm trying to spread knowledge of the series as much as I can! As famous as it is in its native Japan (it was, afterall, what made Rumiko Takahashi a household name in Japan), it's relatively obscure here in America (though most of Takahashi's other series, especially Inu-Yasha, have become pretty well known over here).

So, I want as many people over here to know about it! It deserves more American fans. :)

I've told all my friends who like anime about it. :3

Yeah, it's amazing that it's so huge in Japan, but so obscure in America. It's really unfair.

I still have some hope that, given Inu-Yasha's popularity and the popularity of Ranma, they might eventually re-release this one. Maybe even do a new dub... the English dub, from what I've heard, isn't good.

UY never got a good break in terms of dubbing, but I can't say I blame the dubbers. In America, the UY anime is licensed to AnimEigo... and AnimEigo is a relatively small company. If anything, I respect AnimEigo for actually releasing the entire series on DVD, even if, with a few exceptions, it's all subtitled only.

Viz, of course, holds the license for the UY manga... and is doing nothing with it. They released the manga a long time ago, back when anime and manga weren't yet "hip"... but they only released a third of the series before canceling it. They've never gone back to rerelease it and it's one of the reasons I have disdain for Viz.

Well, that and this: [link]

Among various other little small things. But MOSTLY, I just really don't like the poor treatment that Viz gave Urusei Yatsura. If it weren't for that, I probably would overlook all of Viz's other shortcomings and not hate Viz. But you know me. UY is my favorite series, so the fact that Viz has treated it so badly really angers me. Nowadays, Viz doesn't even like mentioning the series. The ONLY time you'll ever see them mention it nowadays is very, VERY briefly in those short little biographies about Rumiko Takahashi. But that's only because you can't accurately tell the story of Takahashi's rise to fame without at least mentioning her first hit series.

I'd rather have subtitles than nothing. :3 And sometimes it's better, honestly.

Viz, once again, fails at life. They have their hands on SO much good anime and manga, but they always manage to do something really stupid.

That link makes me sad . . . ;_;

I can't blame you for hating Viz for what they've done with UY. They're sitting on what is one of the most epic series in all of anime and manga history; and they do nothing with it.

Honestly... I've seen them re-release Ranma since the take-off of Inu-Yasha; so why not re-release UY? As much money as they've made off Takahashi's works; how can they ignore Urusei Yatsura?

Well, can Viz's licensing rights expire? I know licensing rights DO expire, because that's why I keep missing Futurama every night. So, is it possible Viz could let the rights lapse and someone else could buy up UY? Or does Viz have a contract with Takahashi for all her works?

Viz doesn't have a contract with Takahashi's works, BUT... well, I'm not quite sure I completely understand it, but they have something where they essentially have the rights to anything published by Shogakukan (which includes everything that appears in Shonen Sunday Magazine). Since all of Takahashi's series ran in a Shogakukan publication, by default the American rights for those manga are given to Viz.

So, in short, the rights for the UY manga won't ever expire, as far as I know, since they're kind of in part of a package deal. It is, however, possible for Viz to sell the rights to someone else... but it's unlikely that they'd ever do that. It seems just as unlikely as them ever rereleasing the manga themselves (which I wish they would).

I'm just thankful they don't also hold the rights to the UY anime... otherwise, it might never had gone past a few VHS releases.
