Everyone keeps discussing the shitty new season anime ignoring the actual hit of the decade, an adaptation of manga by the richest japanese women, most famous mangaka after Toriyama, enigmatic goddess of japanese manga Rumiko Takahashi.
Kyoukai no Rinne is hitting the TV screens.
Historical moment people wait so long for is finally there.
The impressive thing is that she is STILL writing, despite officially becoming the richest woman (not just mangaka, just richest female person) in Japan while ago, was 6th richest person overall
Other mangaka can only dream of such success.
Proof that she likes her job since she's still doing it long after becoming successful enough to stop.
This. She already did a lot for the industry and deserves all the respect she can get.
Scored big time on manga and animation and merchandize rights with Lum, Ranma and Inu Yasha. This is what happens when Mangaka is not just editor`s slave but actually has a bussiness grip.
UY and Ranma made her all her dosh. Inuyasha was really just icing after the fact. Like >>123373898 said, what got her where she is is that she's not a business retard, but knows how to sell her work, knows how to negotiate the waters, has a crew of four or five assistants who are also not idiots, and she's never married and does whatever she wants to.
I haven't read a single page of the manga, because I heard it was getting animated, so I'm giving it a shot. If the anime's not terrible, I'll pick up the manga. I'm treating it like Ranma in reverse.
>watched inuyasha back in the day
>new anime comes out that finishes the story
>barely even remember that shit, not about to rewatch 100 episodes to get back into it
>still feel like I need to finish it
Is it even worth it at this point?
This isn't /v/ or /pol/, nobody gives a shit, look at all the Okada trash people like here, as well as stuff like Shirobako or Hidamari Sketch
You missed a really retarded thread. At first you think its an April Fools thread but autists will be autists. A couple retards only found out Shirobako and Hidamari are made by women and dropped it/removed from their backlogs. I love when people do this shit.
I am not sure how Rumiko being woman is relevant since she pretty much pioneered harem genre with rich (and daring counting Lum) fanservice. All her works are Shounen demographics (with few jousei horror).
Its like dropping Full metal Alchemist since its written by female.
Ranma 1/2 was never supposed to be appealing to the shounen demographic, it was targeted at teenage girls. That it turned into a shounen demographic-beloved series was an accident that Takahashi had admitted she can't even explain.
I really don't know how someone can nearly complete FMA and not know that Arakawa was female. Did they just not bother reading any biographical stuff even within the manga?
>richest japanese women
i thought that was sailor moon's mangaka, since sailor moon sells like pancakes overseas
and Togashi is getting away with his bullshit because Sailo's papa is ubber rich and can threaten Jump if they do something to his son-in-law.
