Steal Darling! The Copy Operation!! (ダーリンを奪え!コピー作戦!!, Dārin wo Ubae! Kopī Sakusen!!) is the 38th episode of Urusei Yatsura.


Things go wrong when Lum tries to protect Ataru from Ran's vengeance by making a duplicate of himself with a special gun.

Plot Overview



  • Ataru invites Shinobu to see Star Wars Part 3, which actually comes out a year after this episode's first airing.
    • The actual title for the film is Return of the Jedi, and it would later get a reference in Episode 89, which aired the year the film came out.

Differences from the Manga

The story is mostly the same in both versions, just padded out a bit in the anime to fill the required time.
