From October 17, 1984
Opening Theme: Chance on Love
Ending Theme: Open Invitation

Season overview:
This season continues the quality animation and storytelling of the previous season.
Yamazaki's UY continues to get better and better. Strangely there still are a few episodes with old-looking 1982 animation style, but for the most part this is the best Urusei Yatsura has looked. Comparing these episodes made near at the end of 1984 with the TV show a couple of years earlier, you'd think there was 6 year difference between the two. The fact that UY upgraded its look so drastically over such a short period still amazes me.

The 3rd movie Remember My Love also started going into production later on in this season, but didn't debut until well into the next season.
