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.

17 of 17 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 7, 2006
Format: Paperback
The Ranma 1/2 series starts to wind down to the end in the thirty-fourth volume, as Ranma faces one of his most lethal opponents: his own adoring mother, who might just kill him if she learns of his "unmanly" curse. While the other stories in this volume are hilarious, it's the family tale that really shows Rumiko Takahashi at her best.

The Tendos and Saotomes have gone to the beach, where Akane is awarded a bathing suit that allows her to swim, and entered into as swimming contest. Except Ranma suspects that there is a terrible monster awaiting his fiancee. Later on, when Ukyo gets the flu, transvestite ninja Konatsu is determined to run the restaurant for her. Except he's not very good at it -- even with Ranma and Akane's help.

Ryoga's relationship woes continue when he turns up in the mountains, where Ranma and Akane's families are vacationing. He's supposed to meet his girlfriend Akari, but because of mixed-up maps and no sense of direction, he's having some trouble. It's up to Ranma to get his rival off to that date!

And finally, the story readers have been waiting for. Genma tries to take a "family treasure" from an ancestral Saotome grave, and is narrowly foiled by his wife's arrival. Even though he cannot reveal that he is not "Ranko," Ranma is determined to keep the treasure in Nodoka's hands. The problem is that Nodoka is starting to realize the truth about Ranma's double identity -- and may force her son to commit suicide.

To make matters worse, Nodoka also has a family heirloom -- a gold ring -- that she wants Ranma to give Akane. Problem is, Ranma and Akane are furious with each other. And since Ranma has moved out of the Tendo house, Akane starts to think that they no longer have much to do with each other.

One of the more fun volumes. This volume sets up the final arc of the story, back where all the trouble comes from.
