Eventually they learn that when Ataru was playing games as a little boy, he stepped on a girl's shadow. Unbeknownst to him, the girl was from extraterrestrial culture where stepping on one's shadow is a form of marriage proposal, and now she and her family have come back to see that Ataru keeps his promise.

When everyone in Tomobiki receives invitations for Ataru's wedding, and Lum's not the bride, it doesn't take much to get everyone into an uproar. Things don't get better when it turns out that Ataru's bride-to-be is another alien princess.

This is truly a fantastic movie. Fast-paced comedy, coupled with a romantic story and wacky characters make this movie into a must-see for any anime fan. But to get the most out of this movie, it surely helps to already be a fan of the series.
