  1. Rumiko Takahashi was born in Niigata, Japan She is not only one of the richest women in Japan but also one of the top paid manga artists She is also the most successful female comic artist in history She has been writing manga non stop for 31 years.Rumiko Takahashi is one of the wealthiest women in Japan The manga she creates and its anime adaptations are very popular in the United States and Europe where they have been released as both manga and anime in English translation Her works are relatively famous worldwide, and many of her series were some of the forerunners of early English language manga to be released in the nineties Takahashi is also the best selling female comics artist in history well over 100 million copies of her various works have been sold.Though she was said to occasionally doodle in the margins of her papers while attending Niigata Ch High School, Takahashi s interest in manga did not come until later During her college years, she enrolled in Gekiga Sonjuku, a manga school founded by Kazuo Koike, mangaka of Crying Freeman and Lone Wolf and Cub Under his guidance Rumiko Takahashi began to publish her first doujinshi creations in 1975, such as Bye Bye Road and Star of Futile Dust Kozue Koike often urged his students to create well thought out, interesting characters, and this influence would greatly impact Rumiko Takahashi s works throughout her career.Career and major works Takahashi s professional career began in 1978 Her first published story was Those Selfish Aliens, a comedic science fiction story During the same year, she published Time Warp Trouble, Shake Your Buddha, and the Golden Gods of Poverty in Sh nen Sunday, which would remain the home to most of her major works for the next twenty years Later that year, Rumiko attempted her first full length series, Urusei Yatsura Though it had a rocky start due to publishing difficulties, Urusei Yatsura would become one of the most beloved anime and manga comedies in Japan.In 1980, Rumiko Takahashi found her niche and began to publish with regularity At this time she started her second major series, Maison Ikkoku, in Big Comic Spirits Written for an older audience, Maison Ikkoku is often considered to be one of the all time best romance manga Takahashi managed to work on Maison Ikkoku on and off simultaneously with Urusei Yatsura She concluded both series in 1987, with Urusei Yatsura ending at 34 volumes, and Maison Ikkoku being 15.During the 1980s, Takahashi became a prolific writer of short story manga, which is surprising considering the massive lengths of most of her works Her stories The Laughing Target, Maris the Chojo, and Fire Tripper all were adapted into original video animations OVAs In 1984, after the end of Urusei Yatsura and Maison Ikkoku, Takahashi took a different approach to storytelling and began the dark, macabre Mermaid Saga This series of short segments was published sporadically until 1994, with the final story being Mermaid s Mask Many fans contend that this work remains unfinished by Takahashi, since the final story does not end on a conclusive note.Another short work left untouched is One Pound Gospel, which, like Mermaid Saga, was published erratically The last story to be drawn was published in 2001, however just recently she wrote one final chapter concluding the seriesLater in 1987, Takahashi began her third major series, Ranma Following the late 80s and early 90s trend of sh nen martial arts manga, Ranma features a gender bending twist The series continued for nearly a decade until 1996, when it ended at 38 volumes Ranma is one of Rumiko Takahashi s most popular series with the Western world.During the later half of the 1990s, Rumiko Takahashi continued with short stories and her installments of Mermaid Saga and One Pound Gospel until beginning her fourth major work, InuYasha While Ran

  2. Recently widowed, young Kyoko had now become the manager of a crumbling apartment to keep her mind off of her sorrows But will she be able cope when she has such a difficult group of tenents to deal with A lovely first volume, though the development of Godai and the lovely manger s relationship isn t handled as smoothly as it could be One moment Kyoko has no reason to care about him and suddenly she s worried about how he ll do in exams though this could just be part of her good nature it s a bi [...]

  3. Romantic manga that tells the story of a widowed woman who becomes the manager of an apartment block One of the tenants, a university student, is immediately attracted to her and the story is essentially a soap opera of the two of them eventually coming together Very sweet, if a little predictable It has author Takahashi s zany sense of humour that readers will recognize from Ranma 1 2 and Inu Yasha.

  4. Rumiko Takahashin hurmaava romanttinen saippuaooppera Maison Ikkoku Viz, 1994 oli toinen lukemani japanilainen sarjakuva, ja edelleen yksi parhaista kohdalle osuneista mangoista.

  5. I liked it I m just not wild about it, probably because I m a little manga ed out right now I hear that the second one is sweet we ll see.

  6. This was the first volume of manga I ever read I just reread it and still think it s one of the best comics of all time.

  7. Rumiko Takahashi is a master of capturing human nuances and then creating hilarious caricatures out of them I use the word caricature positively because the two dimentionality of her characters is intentional and it works very well with this particular flavor of comedy Add that to Takahashi s unique art style some would call it outdated, I prefer vintage and the fact that I absolutely LOVE a good comedy I should have liked this story But I didn t Reason being It is ridiculously chauvinistic.Yes, [...]

  8. I ve known about Maison Ikkoku for years, I just never got around to reading it Not sure why that is, seeing as I love Rumiko Takahashi So it s not surprising that I find myself attached to yet another of her series Even though this can be considered one of her earlier works, it s still so solid No matter what she sits down to create, the world and its characters turn out so well Not to mention her unique drawing style just pulls it all together.You know shenanigans are in the picture whenever t [...]

  9. On a manga kick It only takes me like an hour to read these, so they re perfect for when I m baking Excited to finish this series.

  10. Initially I started looking into Takahashi s manga due to the Inuyasha anime series on Adult Swim based on the Inuyasha manga It had started out nicely, but the DVD s were pricy and hard to find at the time.I came across this, and liking the first volume, ended up buying the set, one at a time, as an escape from my usual reading habits.I m really unsure what on earth was going on with the volume description above.A failing college student lives in a boarding house with a typical sitcom style cas [...]

  11. I ve read Maison Ikkoku several times I m not the biggest fan of Takahashi s other works Ranma, Inuyasha but this one will always remain one of my best loved manga Right, so, this series is a story about a group of people living in an apartment building together The main characters are a struggling student and a young, widowed landlord, but the supporting cast of characters is incredibly intertwined with these two The characterization is spot on I could actually believe these are real people alt [...]

  12. I used to love Inuyasha when I was younger and when I was browsing my local library for something to read and saw Maison Ikkoku, I decided, Hey why not and grabbed it.I m not sure why, but I don t get along well with 90 s manga Maybe it s the style although the girls are really, really, really pretty but it doesn t sit well with me However, I was able to tolerate it in this manga.But the hilarious antics didn t sway me at all Although this can maybe fall under the slice of life category, I can t [...]

  13. This manga is not for the impatient seriously, the romance takes a good 6 years of the characters lives to get on its feet For all that, it s a cute story The humanity of the characters is both maddening and endearing And while the plotline is meandering and episodic, it has enough direction to be enjoyable I must admit, it s also a pleasant change to read a manga featuring utterly normal, working class adults No magic, no aliens, no kids with superpowers, just the everyday joys and struggles of [...]

  14. I read the whole series, but I m just gonna put a review on the first one.I think the three words that sum up the series are awkward, unsure and cute.I first picked up a few books volume 8 11 in a book sale when I was nine, for 1.50 a volume In the last five years, I ve managed to scout down the whole series They were my first manga books and they re currently some of the only ones I ll buy to hold rather than read online.The series holds pride of place in my little black heart really I read and [...]

  15. This is one of the first titles that really sucked me into comics I collected every issue for the first 7 of the 15 series, now I m rereading them from the beginning every bit as good as I remember.

  16. I m indulging in a leisurely re read of this Rumiko Takahashi series because I own it Situational comedy Slice of life Hints of gag The cast is memorable because they re so quirky, and the story s pacing is episodic and slooow Pleasantly nostalgic I do like it.

  17. Probably the best Manga I have read so far.The writing was well done for a translation,found it hilarious throughout the story.Also what kept me interested was its peek into japanese culture,,,which I love.

  18. As a huge fan of InuYasha and Rumiko Takahashi, I had high expectations Apparently my expectations were a little too high Maybe the anime is better Maybe I just have to read another volume Not that I really want to after reading that first one

  19. This is an awesome manga written by a great author like Rumiko Takahashi With a simple plot, the reader finds herself himself involved in the story, feeling all the ups and downs Yusaku is passing through as if you were him it s fantastic, I read it in the blink of an eye I highly recommend it

  20. I love Rumiko s art, but I ve not a huge fan of the humor of this manga There s a lot of pervert jokes and I don t really find it funny.

  21. I laughed top to bottom and wept at the end This was one of my favorite love stories even though it tortured me for fourteen volumes.

  22. knockabout funny, also smart and so very, very grownup i like Takahashi as much as the next girl but if i d realised maison ikkoku was this good, i dve dived in long ago.

  23. This is just the first volume and I am not rating the whole series here I thought it was alright and endearing at times but nothing extraordinary so far.
