Rumiko Takahashi is one of the add Original Character Design
wealthiest women in Japan. The manga
she creates (and its anime adaptations) Kidou Shinsengumi Moeyo Ken
are very popular in the United States add Original Character Design
and Europe where they have been
released as both manga and anime in Kidou Shinsengumi Moeyo Ken TV
English translation. Her works are add Original Character Design
relatively famous worldwide, and many
of her series were some of the Kyoukai no Rinne
forerunners of early English language add Original Creator
manga to be released in the nineties.

Though she was said to occasionally Kyoukai no Rinne CM

add Original Creator
while attending Niigata Chuuou High
School, Takahashi's interest in manga Maison Ikkoku
did not come until later. During her
add Original Creator
college years, she enrolled in Gekiga
Sonjuku, a manga school founded by Maison Ikkoku: Bangai-hen - Ikkokujima Nanpa Shimatsuki
Kazuo Koike, mangaka of Crying add Original Creator
Freeman and Lone Wolf and Cub. Under
his guidance Rumiko Takahashi began Maison Ikkoku: Kanketsu-hen
to publish her first doujinshi creations in add Original Creator
1975, such as Bye-Bye Road and Star of
Futile Dust. Kozue Koike often urged his Maison Ikkoku: Prelude - Meguru Haru no Sakura no You ni...
students to create well-thought out, add Original Creator

influence would greatly impact Rumiko Maison Ikkoku: Shiki Utsuriyuku Kisetsu no Naka de

Career and major works: add Original Creator

Mermaid Forest OVA

Takahashi's professional career began in
add Original Creator
1978. Her first published story was
Those Selfish Aliens, a comedic science Mermaid's Scar
fiction story. During the same year, she
add Original Creator
published Time Warp Trouble, Shake
Your Buddha, and the Golden Gods of One Pound Gospel
Poverty in Shounen Sunday, which
add Original Creator
would remain the home to most of her
major works for the next twenty years. Ranma ½
Later that year, Rumiko attempted her add Original Creator
first full-length series, Urusei Yatsura.
Though it had a rocky start due to
publishing difficulties, Urusei Yatsura Ranma ½ OVA
would become one of the most beloved add Original Creator
anime and manga comedies in Japan.
Ranma ½ Special
In 1980, Rumiko Takahashi found her add Original Creator
niche and began to publish with
Ranma ½ Super
regularity. At this time she started her
second major series, Maison Ikkoku, in add Original Creator
Big Comic Spirits. Written for an older
Ranma ½: Chou Musabetsu Kessen! Ranma Team vs. Densetsu no Houou
audience, Maison Ikkoku is often
add Original Creator
considered to be one of the all-time
best romance manga. Takahashi
Ranma ½: Chuugoku Nekonron Daikessen! Okite Yaburi no Gekitou-hen!!
managed to work on Maison Ikkoku on
add Original Creator
and off simultaneously with Urusei
Yatsura. She concluded both series in Ranma ½: Kessen Tougenkyou! Hanayome wo Torimodose!
1987, with Urusei Yatsura ending at 34
add Original Creator
volumes, and Maison Ikkoku being 15.
Rumiko Takahashi Anthology
During the 1980s, Takahashi became a add Original Creator
prolific writer of short story manga,
which is surprising considering the Shounen Sunday CM Gekijou: InuYasha-hen
massive lengths of most of her works. add Original Creator
Her stories The Laughing Target, Maris
the Chojo, and Fire Tripper all were The Choujo
adapted into original video animations add Original Creator
(OVAs). In 1984, after the end of Urusei
Yatsura and Maison Ikkoku, Takahashi Urusei Yatsura
took a different approach to storytelling add Original Creator
and began the dark, macabre Mermaid
Urusei Yatsura Movie 1: Only You
Saga. This series of short segments was
published sporadically until 1994, with add Original Creator
the final story being Mermaid's Mask.
Urusei Yatsura Movie 2: Beautiful Dreamer
Many fans contend that this work
add Original Creator
remains unfinished by Takahashi, since
the final story does not end on a
Urusei Yatsura Movie 3: Remember My Love
conclusive note.
add Original Creator

Another short work left untouched is Urusei Yatsura Movie 4: Lum The Forever
One-Pound Gospel, which, like Mermaid
add Original Creator
Saga, was published erratically. The last
story to be drawn was published in Urusei Yatsura Movie 5: Kanketsu-hen
2001, however just recently she wrote add Original Creator
one final chapter concluding the series
Urusei Yatsura Movie 6: Itsudatte My Darling
Later in 1987, Takahashi began her add Original Creator
third major series, Ranma ½. Following
the late 80s and early 90s trend of Urusei Yatsura OVA
shounen martial arts manga, Ranma ½ add Original Creator
features a gender-bending twist. The
series continued for nearly a decade Urusei Yatsura: Haru da, Tobidase!
until 1996, when it ended at 38 add Original Creator
volumes. Ranma ½ is one of Rumiko
Urusei Yatsura: The Shougaibutsu Suieitaikai

the Western world. add Original Creator

she astounds me as how she can deliver big series after big series, always thought it took her more time between series, but
damn Urusei Yatsura and Maison were works in parallel and then Ranma, and after that Inuyasha...and after that Kyokai no Rinne,
daaamn she's a titan in the manga world, pretty much 40 years of success with different series


Zane_0 | Jan 27, 4:57 PM

damn she made inuyasha awesome

Her inability to write a truly likable female lead is quite astounding.
And yes I include Kyoko in that. [2]


Arimias | Nov 5, 2018 9:23 PM

Maison Ikkoku is spectacular and I love it. Truly one of a kind. Thanks so much for creating it.


Ming_HUANG | Oct 29, 2018 8:05 AM

a true classic and a representation of why 80s and 90s anime will be best anime, nothing beats this, ever. There's is so much
charm and pride in rumiko Takahashis work. Ps the music is absolutely amazing in a the anime as well

Rumiko Takahashi is a pioneer of real romance comedy anime, someone that understands how to make a laugh but also know how
to crack a tear and the feels, she deserves even more credit and recognition than she already does as she is an absolute legend.


Blue-Crescent | Oct 25, 2018 12:42 AM

As a grown up, for being someone one who has his fair shares of sadness and loneliness, I will forever be grateful to have found
your works, most especially InuYasha. With how in such a way, InuYasha has been my hero as a child and how he saved me from
so many things because watching the series became by portal of escape at a young age. Thank you, Rumiko Takahashi. You might
not be able to read this but may you still have more years to live. You are a true legend of your own ways. Thank you for giving
me my hero.
