About

The Urusei Yatsura Intro Animation Meme is a series of animation memes that recreate the intro theme of the 1980s anime series Urusei Yatsura with different characters. The trend was popularized on TikTok in mid-June 2024 and gained viral spread to YouTube.

Origin

The theme song for the 1980s anime series Urusei Yatsura is "Lum no Love Song" by Yuko Matsutani (shown below).



On January 26th, 2024, TIkToker[1] @discoanimedisco posted the theme song along with its accompanying animation, garnering over 1.5 million views in six months. That June, TikTokers began to use the original sound to post recreated versions of the opening theme, replacing the characters. Although unconfirmed to be the first, the earliest known example was posted by TikToker[2] @zombozled on June 15th, 2024, replacing the characters with ones from Dungeon Meshi, garnering over a million views in a month (shown below).
