Lost in Translation
This year's fifth issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Original magazine is announcing on Monday that the latest installment of the Rumic Theater (Takahashi Rumiko Gekijō) manga will run in the next issue on March 5. Popular creator Rumiko Takahashi (Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha, RIN-NE) is drawing "Yamashii Dekigoto" (Shameful Incident) as part of her annual short story series.
The story centers around a man and "a secret he kept from his wife. What was between him and a girlfriend is a faint memory … or should be … but now it has dealt his family a direct blow!?"
The previous Rumic Theater stories have been compiled into four book volumes, and Viz published some of them in North America. They also inspired the 2003 Rumiko Takahashi Anthology television anime series that Geneon released in North America.
