Editorial Reviews Review

Rumiko Takahashi continues the saga of Godai, Kyoko, and the hijinks that keep them from getting together. The events surrounding the two broken legs from Maison Ikkoku: Bedside Manners escalate with the arrival of a new roommate. When the casts come off, the residents of Maison Ikkoku take a surprise resort holiday to a hot springs. Wouldn't you know it: bathing suits are optional. --Jim Pascoe

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.

Have you ever read one of those books that just makes you hug yourself and chirp with glee? Well, this is one of them! For those of you who have been going through the series, I can tell you that this book has one of the most wonderful moments thus far. It makes you smile and say to no one in particular "Yeah. Its all going to be all right now. I know it."

Every time I read any of the Maison Ikkoku books I feel better. It's funny, but I just can't help it. When I've lost my faith in men, I turn to this volume. When I'm sad, or I'm angry, or I feel like I need a laugh, it almost seems like the whole gang from Maison Ikkoku is there, trying to cheer me up. Try this series; you might like it!

Format: Paperback
Things get even more complex in the seventh "Maison Ikkoku" volume, where Yusaku Godai finds himself dealing with new problems -- especially with his platonic girlfriend, his rival, and the woman he not-so-secretly yearns for. Here the hapless college student both encounters new obstacles... and finds that he is starting to warm Kyoko's heart.

Yusaku's inability to break up with platonic girlfriend Kozue starts a horrible fight between himself and Kyoko. But when Kyoko almost falls from a rooftop, Yusaku rescues he -- and he's the one who falls off instead, breaking his leg. When Yusaku is in the hospital, Kyoko is wracked with guilt, and decides that she is going to repress her jealousy ("withdraw from the race"), because they aren't even a couple.

But Kyoko is having a tough time keeping her promise, especially when Yusaku's cute -- and very cuddle-prone -- cousin arrives. Fortunately, the cousin is engaged to another guy, and needs the help of the Maison Ikkoku gang to elope -- except the elopement injures Yusaku further. He and Kyoko start to grow closer and closer... until hunky rival Mitaka also breaks his leg, and ends up in the hospital bed next to Yusaku's.

Romancing an older woman would be tough enough for a struggling college student. But what about an older woman who is still in love with her late husband? As daunting as that is, Yusaku makes some serious progress with Kyoko in this volume, except for the constant interruptions from their respective rivals.

The first few stories in this collection are relatively lightweight, focusing on a three-legged race and getting rid of Grandma Godai. But then the heavier relationship stuff starts.

Yusaku is still laid up in the hospital recovering from a leg injury he incurred saving Kyoko from falling off the Ikkoku roof. He's finally getting rid of his cousin, who has been nursing him all this time and is now getting his real wish because Kyoko will be taking care of him. But you didn't think that his rival, Mitaka, was going to stand still for this, and let Godai and Kyoko have all that alone time together, did you? Mitaka actually goes and intentionally hurts himself and requests treatment at the same hospital where Yusaku is, and is placed in the bed next to him! Even if Yusaku finds a way to get closer to Kyoko, she still continues to think about her dead husband, especially on this, the 4th anniversary since his death.

I love this series. Rumiko Takahashi to me is the greatest living manga creator and Masion Ikkoku illustrates why. First of all, the characters are fun, real, and simply designed. The panels flow and never jump and are never confusing. Takahashi's storytelling abilities are second to none, even in a slice-of-life manga like this. Inventiveness is what I like about her the most. Even though its been a long time coming, it seems as though the relationship between Yusaku and Kyoko is definitely turning a corner in this seventh volume. There's just a sense of joy and wisdom that pervades anything this lady creates. Classic.
