Season 1 will be more comedy and less romance as it will feature Lum’s arrival on Earth and her encounter with Ataru. As we all know, Ataru didn’t like Lum initially, and their romance is more of an enemies-to-lovers.

Even though Lum is completely in love with Ataru, the latter doesn’t seem to like it very much. At the same time, Ataru does care about Lum a lot despite his lecherous and flirty personality.

Moreover, the anime’s staff has also revealed a new character, Ran, for the upcoming anime. Ran is another alien of an unknown race and Lum’s childhood friend and rival.

Kana Hanazawa will be playing Ran’s character in the anime. Hanazawa has previously voiced Kosaki Onodera from Nisekoi, Rika Orimoto in the recent Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, and Mitsuri Kanroji in Demon Slayer.

Although Ran and Lum are long-term rivals, they care for each other deeply. Despite all the trouble that Lum causes, Ran never abandons her friend and is always there for her.

Ran’s character will be a cherry on top because of her and Lum’s rivalry. Not to mention, Ran tries to poison Ataru on multiple occasions, which is just way too hilarious.

October seems so far away. I might just go and binge the original series to pass the time, and I suggest the same to you guys.
