Based on the manga of the same name, the series follows Ataru Moroboshi who was chosen to play a game of tag with an alien princess named Lum who invades the Earth on her UFO. Ataru has ten days to touch Lum's horns or aliens will take over the Earth! As it turns out, this game is just the beginning of his troubles as he continues to attract strange encounters with otherworldly beings!
The anime will adapt select stories from the 34-volume manga series and will have full year run, but not consecutively. The show's "first season" is set to premiere this October.
