looovfe ranma 1/2 i got most of the music on my ipod except for the movies and it'll be nice if i had an Onna Ranma action figure :/. i love ranma 1/2 cause i loved the martial arts move and i like kung fu (but never get a chance to take a class or anything like that for it :/) i also like ranma 1/2 cause its really intresting how ranma gets splashed by cold water and turns into a girl and acts all tomboyish and mad while he's a girl its really cool ^_^
maison ikkoku - the hands-down best romance ever - the manga and anime are both exceptionally excellent - i've cried and laughed a million times experiencing takashi's masterwork... but i love everything she's ever done!!!
A tie between Maison Ikkoku and Urusei Yatsura. :)
UY is a long series like her others and yet I never really felt it was repetitive with all it's running gags unlike her other (yet awesome) series such as InuYasha and Ranma 1/2- even though, technically, it used them almost as much as the others. The fillers were entertaining and as for her standard "Takahashi" argumentive couple- Lum and Ataru are the cutest to watch because Ataru IMO is probably the cruelest out of all Takahashi-sensei's lead males, which makes his kind moments the most heartwarming <3
Maison Ikkoku is such a good story and a classic anime- plus, this was Takahashi-sensei's first "realistic" work for the most part and she could have flubbed it up but she didn't which makes the series so amazing!
InuYasha I give props to because it was her most action-packed, "mature" series that wasn't as dark as Mermaid Saga and not as crazy as UY or Ranma; and wasn't as lighthearted as Maison Ikkoku even if both had the most serious character development out of all her works.
Ranma 1/2 is probably my least favorite out of all of them- but don't get me wrong I love it to pieces but I guess it just didn't go as deep IMO as the other 3.
I haven't read One Pound Gospel or Mermaid Saga yet but I have heard so much about them and I hope they are just as good!
Ranma 1/2 is the only anime that I could watch over and over again and I also read the manga, but I also adore Inuyasha! Altough I don't think I'd have the patience to read the whole manga (I just read my fav. episodes form the anime)
and btw, something is missing: Kyoukai no RINNE, her latest work :)
Inuyasha is my top fav and Rinne follows. I fear Rinne won't end because of Rumiko's age... I mean hope she lives a lot more and finishes it but I'm worried. What do you think?
I hope in Sakura x Rinne end, it has to happen. Please!
