Hey all!

I just saw Uran's Quest for the first time. :wahah: Man, that was one of the cutest, funniest, and dramatic episodes I've seen. The colors are beautiful too, pure eye candy. I especially like the seen where Uran's in the library researching the world's religions and gets bored and starts to fall asleep, and then leaves the library yawning. :lol:

Warning: for those of you who've not seen this and don't want to know more, this is a spoiler.

OK. Uran now rejects all the human gods and starts to quest for a "Robot God". :lol: She then asks a mistic computer at an amuzement park "Who is the Robot God?." He then malfunctions and thinks he's God and tries to make Uran and Astro believe it. Both Astro and Uran fight him through various sections of the park, which seems like a spoof on Disneyland. Especially the Alice in Wonderland seen with the playing cards. When they finally defeat the computer and find out it malfunctioned because of a cochroach getting inside it, Astro says "There's a moral here somewhere, I just don't know what." :lol: Then finally at the end Uran finds out that since Dr. Elefun(Ochinomizu) created her, in a way he's her God. She immedeately rejects this. :wahah: :lol:

Man this is one episode I will watch over and over again. :lol:

This is one of my favourite episodes too, actually all eps with Uran featuring in are cute.
:lol:
Further 80's episodes with Uran as the main actress:
- Uran The Tomboy
- Uran's Twin
- Uran Falls In love

I hope Uran's dancing scene in 'Uran's Twin' will be included in the Madman DVD box.

Hi Louis'74 and Cybotron,

Thanks for the replies. My favorites are with Uran too. Thanks to Cybotron's video stream of Uran the Tomboy I bought it from the internet. I'm waiting on 3 more tapes and I'll have all the 80's eps. :) I can't wait to see Uran's Twin. To bad they cut the dance sceen on the dub version. :( I would have loved it. I saw a clip from Uran Falls in Love. It was funny how she cheered on both Astro and Zeus "Go Astro, Go Zeus". But my favorite line was in the 80's take on the run away train story, where she tells off Alvin "Your mean Alvin, and your fat and ugly too" :lol:

My favorite one with her in the current show is when she and Astro go back in time to the dinosaur era.

I love her as much as Astro. She's so cute and funny :lol:

In terms of Uran's cuteness I would like to recommend the episode 'The Large Venture Of Micro' from the new series. The storyline is almost similar to a movie called 'Fantastic Voyage', which has been made somewhere in the 1960's.

Also the 03' version of Uran's birth is very cute. Just take a look at her face as Astro stops her from hurting Dr. O'Shay's nose:

:wahah: Wow cute pics, thank you. Yes the Astro take on Fantastic Voyage is one of my favorites. It shows just how much Astro and Uran love each other, especially at the end when Uran gives Astro a big hug. :lol: Awww! And yes I love the birth of Uran two. I like watching that back to back with the micro ep.

I just ordered a bunch of 60's tapes from the Right Stuff. One has Astro Boy Goes to School. It has Uran as a main character, so I can see how cute she can be in the 60's version. :lol:
