These collections represent a treasure trove of 12 self-contained episodes which, originally printed separately, are long out of print. Vintage Takahashi, these stories are based on the humor inherent in everyday domestic situations -- but, true to form, her highly original wit means readers ...more

Colectânea de 5 contos de Takahashi onde facilmente se vê a origem de algumas das suas personagens mais famosas, especialmente as de "Lum, the Invader Girl" e "Ranma 1/2". Não são más histórias, mas ainda bem que não foi apresentado à autora por elas.

"Those Selfish Aliens". Tem momentos engraçados, um par de inside jokes contextualizadas na Guerra Fria e a obsessão de Kei tem a sua piada, porém, as personagens têm muito por onde ser trabalhadas. Ainda bem que forma recicladas para outros conteúd

I enjoyed the two time travel stories, and the horror story at the end,the most. The horror story surprised me because I thought it was going to be a rom-com in the vein of Ranma 1/2 and it turned out to be super creepy.

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

This book has a great range of the types of works that Rumiko Takahashi had done. You'll find stories like that of Urusei Yatsura, InuYasha, and Mermaid Forest. Fire tripper and The Laughing Target are fantastic, especially since the second one is a horror story.

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.
