This community welcomes the posting and discussion of all things related to Takahashi Rumiko, her manga, and the anime based on them- Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, Mermaid Saga, One Pound Gospel, Ranma 1/2, InuYasha, and any of her short stories.

About Takahashi Rumiko:
Known as the 'Princess of Manga,' Takahashi Rumiko, born in 1957 in Niigata, Japan, is the acclaimed creator and artist of Maison Ikkoku, InuYasha, Ranma 1/2, and Urusei Yatsura. She is the most successful female comic artist/writer of all time, and is a living legend in her field. She has won several prestigious awards and is, even now, the highest paid person in the anime/manga industry.

Rumiko is known for her strong female characters, her quirky sense of humor which shines through even in her more serious works, her charming but realistic interpersonal relationships, her versatility, and her boundless creativity.

Although she's been atop the manga world for almost thirty years, Takahashi shows no signs of slowing down. She has dedicated her life to manga, and has confessed that she hopes to write manga until the day she dies. And there's little doubt that will bring as much joy to her readers as it does to her.

A List of major titles:
*-Urusei Yatsura
*-Maison Ikkoku
*-Mermaid Saga
*-Ranma 1/2 (Nibun no Ichi)
*-One Pound Gospel
*-InuYasha- (Sengoku o Togi Zoushi)
*-Rumic Theater/Rumic World Short Stories

Welcomed topics include:

1. Discussion of any and all of Takahashi's works, no matter how popular or obscure. This includes the manga versions and their anime adaptations. Discussion of Takahashi herself is also fair game.

2. Posting and recommending of fanworks, your own or ones you've come across (as long as credit is given). Whether it's fanart, fanfiction, livejournal icons, or any other media relating to Rumiko and her works, you're encouraged to post it here. (Please use an LJ-cut if it is a larger image. If posting icons, please do not put more than three icons before the cut.)

3. This is a community for fans of all of Takahashi's works. We realize that that every member may not be a fan of every single work, but please respect that. Takahashi's work spans almost thirty years, so there may be fans of all shapes and sizes here. All of those fans are welcome here.

A Few Little Rules and Suggestions for Conduct Here:

1. No character bashing. If we see anything that we find degrading to a character in any way shape or form- the poster will be warned, and if not fixed, banned.

2. Spamming- If you have something to post, do not do it four different times.

3. On posting fanworks, please use following formatting:


Genres: (Fanfiction.net only allows you to choose two genres, but if you feel it fits appropriately in more, go ahead and list them as well.)

Pairings Represented: (Some people are very picky about their pairings, so I suggest you mention all pairings you have used and most of them that you plan to use. Even if it is a general fic without any strong romance, please list any pairings hinted at. The pairing rule does not just apply to romance fic. In the case of the unknown being absolutely needed for impact, please at least list "surprise pairing" or Name/??. This is a courtesy to the readers and is only polite. Those browsing fanfiction should be able to know beforehand exactly what they are getting into)

Rating: (G, PG, PG-13, R... If it's a higher rated fic you may want to say something like "R for violence." )

Summary: (An actual summary please. "I suck at summaries" isn't going to cut it.) Summaries must not be above PG rating, whether the fic is a higher rating or not.

And of course a LINK to the fic. If you want to list additional things such as 'word count,' that is of course, fine.

4. Always warn of mature content, whether on art or fic. Mature content must be lj-cut.

5. Major spoilers are to always be placed behind an LJ-cut!

6. In order to make this all user-friendly, please take the time to spell-check your entries, and don't make immature posts on issues that have already been brought up or are just "I LOVE THIS MANGA KTHNX BYE."

7. It should be common sense, but please be courteous and respectful to the other members.

8. Have fun and keep posting ^^
