Storyline

Mendou invites Ataru & Co. to his estate for a viewing of a large, aging cherry tree named "Tarozakura", which is to be featured in an independent film which happens to be financed by Mendou, directed by Megane, and starring Lum. During filming, Ataru cuts down Tarozakura as called for in the script, but the downed tree starts foaming and disintegrates. Afterwards, bizarre incidents occur all over Tomobiki, a mountain emerges out of the ground, spring gives way to winter, Sakura's ghostly friends disappear, Lum begins losing her powers, and Lum's friends begin acting as though she doesn't exist.

Quotes

[the frozen dreams collapse, Lum returns, and Ataru approaches her]
Shinobu: And from now on, the days repeat on and on as usual, right?
Sakura: No, not necessarily.
Shinobu: Huh?
Sakura: Even if the days go around, in a path of endlessly nearly concentric circles, as a whole, they should ultimately lead us to a new place.
Mendou: That means...
Sakura: Uh-huh, no one knows what lies ahead of us.
Megane: How naive of me to approve of you and Lum, even for a moment. "Mistakes must be corrected at once." DIE ATARU!

Labyrinthine Disaster
7 September 2018 | by jkamlibanoirakSee all my reviews

The Forever is a really unique movie in its style When this movie is over, in the end you're left with the face of WTF!, What the Hell I Saw?, There are moments where you feel you found the thread, that you start to understand it, but something even more bizarre and confusing happens, and it made you everything to lose The Forever is a very confusing, bizarre and labyrinthine movie It really shows that the new Beautiful Dreamer tried to do it, but it did not come close, and it became a mystery movie, that if it were not for the mystery, it would be Urusei Yatsura's worst movie, even worse than Always My Darling I must say that the soundtrack is beautiful, especially Melancholy No Kiseki, The Best Ending I've Ever Listened
