Rumiko Takahashi Draws New Rumic Theater 1-Shot Manga

Manga follows 2 men, 1 woman

Manga creator Rumiko Takahashi debuted a new one-shot manga titled "Futari no Ie" (Two People's House) in Shogakukan's Big Comic Original magazine on Thursday as part of her Rumic Theater (Takahashi Rumiko Gekijō) series. The manga follows two men who live together harmoniously until a beautiful woman appears at their house.

In her career of over three decades, Takahashi created such manga series as Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, Ranma 1/2, One-Pound Gospel, and Inuyasha. Many of her works became internationally popular and inspired anime and live-action adaptations. Most recently, Takahashi ended her RIN-NE manga in December. The 40th and final compiled volume shipped in Japan in January.

Takahashi Rumiko Gekijō is an irregular series of shorts that runs in Big Comic Original and has inspired an anthology television anime and a live-action television series. Viz Media has published some of the shorts in North America in the 1990s under the title Rumic Theater. Takahashi debuted a short titled "Futeikei Family" for the series last April.

Takahashi drew a one-shot titled "Nanimonai Heya" in Big Comic in February, but it was not part of Rumic Theater series.
