Oh, nice - a one shot! Hopefully we can get it here in the US too...

There's been about 4 collected volumes of her oneshots, which were collected in Rumic Theatre in the US. These are mostly OOP, though I imagine VIZ will reissue them at some point ala One Pound Gospel and Mermaid Theatre's reissues. Some were published in MangaVizion, VIZ's first english manga anthology- I have a great Rugby manga she did in one of those. I also read a library copy of another with a hilarious story about a teenager in a rock band who is haunted by his Takarazuka-obsessed grandmother.

They've been adapted in the Rumic Theatre TV series, as well as the Rumic World OVA's, both of which have been released domestically.

There's also a number of untranslated oneshots which have yet to be collected in Japan [I'm assuming they're waiting to have enough to compile into a few new collections]. Rumiko's scary productive.

It sounds a bit more girl oriented. Or maybe not but I'm curious either way.

My tongue-in-cheek comment apparently went right over your head.

Same here. I usually have liked her series but personally thought they would've been much better if delivered with a shorter vol. count, so I think a one-shot would be a very intriguing piece to read from her. Also, the premise sounds interesting enough to perhaps pull in some some new fans.

I have enjoyed most of Rumiko Takahashi's work. I really enjoyed Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha and this one shot looks well thought out.

I really hope this isn't too girly though, based off the image though. Hope this is able to be licensed in North America though. We need more intelligent manga in the US. Moe can only go so far.

Seeing as it is going to run in Big Comics Original, I don't think it's girl oriented.

She's still the queen of manga to me and I look forward to most anything she does.

Hmm. A one-shot.

To scanlate, or not to scanlate... That is the question.

Same here. Even though there aren't that many people who know about Ranma 1/2 or even watch that series, I still enjoy watching the series over and over again. In fact, Inuyasha was the first anime I watched. If this one shot is ever released into the US, I am going to check this series out.
