Rumic Blog Crew
by Flying Mint Bunny (haro)

I'm here to pimp a blogcrew dedicated to claiming characters from all of Rumiko Takahashi's many works. A blogcrew is a 'crew' of fans made up of livejournal users. There's no actual involvement needed outside putting the code in your userinfo/somewhere else visible. It's a very small text only code. As such, it's pretty much just for fun.

1- You may claim two characters, but they can not be from the same series. For example, while you would be free to claim Kyoko from Maison Ikkoku and Miroku from InuYasha, you would not be able to claim Kyoko and Godai, both from Maison Ikkoku. If you don't know who you want as a second character, you're more than welcome to back at a later point and claim.

2- Any character is fine, no matter how major or minor. Only one person per character.

3- Anything written by Rumiko is fair game, no matter how well known or obscure. For freedom's sake, I'll also allow anything that she had heavy involvement in like Kidou Shinsengumi Moeyo Ken.

4- Rumic Theater/World refers to her short stories. If you're not sure where yours would go if you want someone from a short, that's fine. Just give us the name of the story/character and we'll make sure it's listed in the correct place.

Maison Ikkoku character

current song: Maison Ikkoku 1st op. theme

I LOVE Maison Ikkoku!! It's one of my old time fave series from being a kid in the 90s.

Anyway, short story: I can't make it this year to AX in Long Beach b/c of other engagements, but I'll be attending Anime L.A. in January, and I have never cosplayed as anyone BUT Rumiko Takahashi characters.

Having said that, I'll be Kyoko Otonashi at the next Con not only b/c she's cute and vintage, but easy and warm for the cold month.

I wanted to carry a plush Souichiro-san around...

Does anyone happen to know what breed of dog he is, if he is a specific breed? I thought he was a white shiba inu, but I could be wrong.

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.

If you are a Ranma fan and would like to be stamped as a character, please join in on the fun! I hope to see some new people there :D

watashi no survey (or saavee!!)
by Diko Linnai (balbabunny)
at June 7th, 2007 (11:12 am)

current location: HOME
current mood: awake
current song: Kokorobosoina

For the darndest reason, the lj cut tag would just not work on my comp!! weird...

1. How long have you been a fan of Rumiko's works?
About 14 years, although I've been watching anime classics like A-ko and gall force since the 80s.

2. How did you find out about her/what was the first Rumic work you ever read or saw?
I rented 'Ranma' and 'Urusei Yatsura' VHS titles in the early 90s from various video stores. I also kept up w/ Animerica's UY manga section that was featured in their mag in the early 90s. I liked it so much that when they stopped featuring UY I had to snag the manga from my students from while they were taking english tests. Many of them were UY fans.

3. Which of her series/stories are your favorites? Feel free to list more than one or even several and explain why if you wish.
Urusei Yatsura has always been my number one favorite. Lum is so sweet and polite and helpful to her friends, but is still firey with personality! Plus you can't get much cooler flying around in a bikini! My husband's fave is Ranma, he loves the idea of martial arts comedy.

4. Who are your favorite Rumic characters and/or pairings on the overall?
I really like Lum and Ataru's relationship because even though it's zany, Lum can actually realistically relate most young teen women in these days, when guys ignore their girlfriends for 'hotter chicks,' while she is doing and giving her all to Ataru, or a guy everyone thinks is a loser, which is also common. But Inaba and Shinobu are my favorite couple, because they are so deeply in love and in tune with each other after a short time, Inaba is one of the only gentlemen in RT's series (other than maybe Dr.Tofu).

5. Do you have any other favorite mangaka (manga artists)? Kosuke Fujishima has always had beautiful artwork and heartfelt stories (Aaa Megami Sama, You're under arrest). I also enjoy Kenichi Sonoda's manga that has more of an action, "24" feel to it. (Gunsmith Cats, Riding Bean, Bubblegum crisis).

6. What other anime/manga and/or non-anime/manga fandoms are you into?
Oh god there's too many to list, I have almost 20 years of my own fandom and I love them all. Me and my husband are currently watching Tsubasa Chronicle, it's SO MUCH easier for him to watch it in english instead of having to translate. I really like attending AX here in Socal.

I have cosplayed ONCE as Shampoo, pathetically. Dare to look at it here: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v365/Diko/FH0000061.jpg

7. Have you done any Rumic fanworks? (Fics, art, icons, etc.)
I used to have a site dedicated to Shinobu and Inaba, but I haven't had time to update it, and it's still unfinished. I also have a fanfic of them on fanfiction.net, read it if you want, but I am SO EMBARRASSED about it. I've had several people email me to conclude the story, but I haven't had time.

I've also made an "UNOFFICIAL" Lum Myspace profile!! http://www.myspace.com/lumtheinvader her #1 friend "MissDiko" is me!!

8. What do you hope to get out of this community?
I hope to meet other ppl that share their thoughts and opinions about their favorite Rumiko Takahashi series, and get some news on products and shows. ^_^

9. Lastly, now if you want you can tell us a little bit about yourself outside of your Rumic love.
I'm a newlywed and a long time anime and manga fan, I have two bunnies, and I just enjoy spending my nerdom/fandom days w/ my nerd hubby.

current song: Pajama ja ma da! (my ringtone)

Hello dat-cha!

I am new to this community, I actually have had my personal LJ for about 8 years now and got back into the habit of posting since now I'm a housewife. ^_^ I am a really big fan of urusei yatsura, I've been watching anime since the 80s, and through the years I've watched the anime and manga industry grow mainstream over the years, but Rumiko Takahashi's works have always been my fave.

I'm prolly older than most here, but I'm still is a hard core fan although I'm not as bubbly as I used to be as a kid in the 80s/90s, when the only place you could find RT's anime was at old asian video stores at the time.

Strangely, Inaba and Shinobu are my favorite pair, although we don't see him till toward the end of the series. He's just such a gentleman and she's...well...sweet when she's with him!
