Other Characters

Welcome to your guide to understanding the various relationships in Urusei Yatsura. I have made four complex diagrams to illustrate how the different characters relate to one another. This concerns several aspects such as love, rivalry, friendship and family. These diagrams will help you make sense of it all, and perhaps reveal some ties you may not have been aware of.
