There's a fundamental problem here.You may be aware that scientists 
cannot account for something like 90% of the mass and energy the 
universe should have.

In Sailor Moon, the missing 90% of the universe is chaos, darkness, and 
hunger, and Earth is a delicious morsel.

In Urusei Yatsura, the missing 90% of the universe is punchlines that 
don't want to ruin the surprise, and Earth is a bucolic little island in 
the sea of stars where they still use dead lizards as fuel.

This is not to say that you can't mix the two.

Well, actually, it is.

But you could get rather close by constructing a shoujo space opera 
plotline out of papier-mache and bailing wire and then dropping the 
characters into the chaos of Tomobiki. If it works for Saotome Roman ( 
http://www.onemanga.com/Sket_Dance/7/06/ )  it can work in UY.
