These collections represent a treasure trove of 12 self-contained episodes which, originally printed separately, are long out of print.

can never get enough of Rumiko's one-shots, and this was just as good!

Especially Fire Tripper, which seems to use a similar tive-traveling idea she later returned to and used waaaay more full-blown in InuYasha
I believe Takahashi's best works is her lesser known, earlier works, as opposed to her famous, lenghty series. The Rumic World trilogy is an anthology of short humorous stories.
One of my all-time favorites. Takahashi's short manga are beautiful, thrilling and symbolic. If you can get a hold of it, do.
