After Ataru's mother, Moroboshi-san, recaps the first 21 episodes of Urusei Yatsura, Ataru and his class go on a field trip to visit historical places in Japan (Golden Temple and more). A kunoichi (female ninja) named Kaede accidentally loses a secret document and her master demands she find it. As it happens, Ataru discovers is, thus Kaede must pursue him in order to gain the scroll. Because she's so nice, she doesn't just take it from him. As such, Ataru assumes she has feelings for him. Unfortunately for him, Lum-chan has rented a school uniform and has been tagging along to make sure he doesn't stray. Will Kaede regain the scroll? Will Ataru kiss Kaede? Will anyone survive Lum-chan?

Part one of this TV special is nothing more than a recap of the first 21 episodes of Urusei Yatsura. Since I didn't find those episodes that interesting (save one or two), this was very boring to me.

Part 2 was an all-new story which is more of the same, but with a few minor differences. For starters, Lum loses the bikini pretty early on for a seifuku (school uniform) that matches the girls from Ataru's school. Kaede being a kunoichi who's really good yet really bad was kind of amusing. There was just something about a ninja who has the gift deciding to look for another line of work. Other than that, this was just another Atura-kun chases a girl episode while Lum-chan gets jealous.

Bottom line: UY fans will enjoy I'm sure, but once was more than enough for me.
