* This hiragana is a particle marker that is written ha(は) but pronounced “wa”
“Urusei Yatsura” is a manga/anime by Rumiko Takahashi (Inuyaha, Ranma1/2).The name is a play on words. The aliens on the show come from a planet called “uru” and “sei” is added to denote a heavenly body (mercury- sei )
Yatsura means “those People”
So the title can either mean “those annoying people” or “ those people from the planet uru”
Word games like this are fun and Rumiko Takahashi is a master of them. Most don’t translate to English.
This word is often pronounced "uruse" mostly by men, or tomboyish girls.
