posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Following the Precure, Gundam, and Macross mega-polls, broadcaster NHK is turning to prolific manga creator Rumiko Takahashi to see which of her series is the fan-favorite.
The polling site opened on September 17 and voters can cast their picks until November 4. The choice will be tough; there are 52 anime, about 1100 characters, about 700 TV episodes, and about 160 songs to choose from. The poll results will be broadcast on November 16.
NHK BS Premium will air a program on the 38-year history of Rumiko Takahashi anime series on October 17 with preliminary voting results.
In her career of over three decades, Takahashi has created manga such as Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, Ranma 1/2, One Pound Gospel, and Inuyasha. Many of her works have become internationally popular and inspired anime and live-action adaptations. As of March 2017, her works have a combined 200 million copies in print. The first volume of her MAO manga will go on sale in Japan on September 18.
