In celebration of her 30th anniversary creating manga, Rumiko Takahashi is exhibiting a collection of her artwork. As of 2008, Takahashi has sold 170 million copies of her works, an achievement few other creators have managed. The exhibit itself will be held from July 30th through August 11th in the Ginza district of Tokyo on the eighth floor of the Matsuya building.

For those who do not know who Rumiko Takahashi is, Takahashi is the creator of such masterpieces such as Ranma ½ and Inuyasha.

In addition to the Kuroi Tetsusaiga special, there will also be a new Ranma ½ anime special entitled Okumu! Shunminkou, which is based on a story from Ranma ½ volume 34 by the same name.

Rumiko Takahashi herself, while working on a new manga feature for this Fall, has even come forward to console her fans with unrevealed secrets of the series. Want to know what would happen if Mousse got contact lenses? If Ranma had fallen half-in, half-out of a Jusenkyo pool? So do thousands of Japanese fans, whose letters to Takahashi have been answered in the Ranma Memorials. Reprinted here are some answers to those stay-awake-at-night questions.

Question: Before they came to the Tendo house, how did Ranma have any money to go to school? You never see Genma working. In the early days, when he went to school with Ryoga, he must have at least had money to buy bread…
