More About the Author

The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan's annual New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another--Maison Ikkoku ran from 1980 to 1987, Ranma 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and Inuyasha from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, and One-Pound Gospel.

In this manga of the series, it is evident how Godai is getting more assertive of himself. It's great to watch him 'grow up' in a sense. This series is great, especially for college students, for it envelops how many of us might feel at one time or another. This manga leaves you wanting for more at the end...I can't wait for the next one!

Format: Paperback
Rumiko has a unique way of making charcters have lives that just get more complicated everyday. If it is not one thing it is another. The story captured me from the minute I started to read it. Godia tries his hardest to be determined to pass a test. Life and everyone at Ikkoku are determined to get in his way. The coach has to face his fears of dogs in order to tell Asuna to take a hike. This entire series is a must for those interested in a wacky love comedy. The graphic novel after this one called Game Set Match is also a great one. Godia moves out for a while, the coach gets married, Kyoko gets jealous(what else is new), Kozue comes along and we see what happens when Kyoko quits as a manager.I can't wait until the next volume where this story comes to an end.(sigh)

Format: Paperback
THis volume of Maison Ikkoku is very very good. As we all know Godai is in love with his Apartment Manager, Kyoko Otanashi, except he's got people to deal with. There's Shun Mitaka, the Tennis Coach with the glinting teeth, with feelings for Kyoko, and the other tenants of Maison Ikkoku- Mrs. Ichinose (short loud, round, and a big gossip) Mr Yotsuya (demented pervert... probably watches Hentai...) and Akemi (Girl who doesn't dress decent). All these people dwindle with the budding love of Kyoko and Godai. So in this volume, Shun deals with his arranged marriage but can't quite stop it... yet. Godai, being the kind person we all love, takes care of 2 very cute kids while their mama is off chasing after someone, Shun tries to embrace Kyoko's heart, Godai get's ready for his teacher's licsense, and Shun and Asuna get very "close" Of course more happens but I won't spoil it for you.

Not only one of the best manga written, but a fabulous and unexpectedly subtle love comedy with memorable characters. Kyoko is one of the most intriguingly flawed heroines I've ever read, and yet you love her as much as Godai does.
Read it. And you'll re-read it many times.
