A short recap of the previous episode
In the previous episode, Lum brought Ataru to her home planet where he will compete in the Setsubun competition.
Ataru assumed the fight was combative. However, he soon learned that together with Lum’s men he only had to fill the basket with red balls faster than the opponent.
Ataru became distracted by Lum’s opponent, Benten, and began flirting with her. Benten took the opportunity to trick Lum into losing the game by flirting back with Ataru.
Shinobu, Shuutaro, Cherry, Kosuke, Chibi, and Satoshi later visited Ataru’s house to check on him when he became bedridden with a cold. Suddenly, Ataru’s room filled with snow coming through the portal that Lum had left open after going to Neptune. A girl dressed in white held Ataru in her arms and told him that she was lost.
Ataru and his friends helped her reach her home planet, where they met Lum, who introduced the girl as her childhood friend, Oyuki.
Before Tomobiki High School’s summer break, Ataru announced that he wished to retire, and all the characters of the Urusei Yatsura came into his class provided the protagonist’s position was vacant. However, Ataru cleared up the confusion by declaring that he would be stepping down from his position as student council president.
