Hi folks!

Still digging through my comics collection, and ran across Manga Vizion #1.

Rumiko Takahashi is best known in the U.S. for her long-running series like Ranma 1/2 and Inu-Yasha, but she has written many short manga stories as well. These have been collected in "Rumic World" volumes. The short stories have some humor in them, but tend to be rather melancholy.

If you're not familiar with Inuyasha, it's a manga about a high school girl named Kagome, who falls down a well in a family shrine and comes out in Sengoku Era Japan. There she meets the half-demon Inuyasha, has adventures, and sometimes goes back and forth between time periods (usually to take her exams).

I gave him some curry. I guess I shouldn't have. )

Yeah, I know that she has her faults, but when Rumiko Takahashi is on top of her game, she can put out some lovely art and extremely funny stories. And since it's come up during my cleaning efforts, let's look at her introduction of Nodoka Saotome.

This is from the Viz edition; back in 1992 they still printed manga in floppies, and flipped so they read left to right. (Though they'd eased up a bit on "no Japanese words we can possibly avoid.") "Ranma 1/2" Volume Ten, #7, 10 pages of 31.
