Takahashi Manga Movable Feast Day Seven Links

Good Morning, and welcome to our final day of links for the Rumiko Takahashi Manga Movable Feast. Today is dessert, if you will, collecting final thoughts and impressions that might have been all week in the making.

I'll be saying more later, but consider this my first place to say "Thank you!" to all who participated, both readers and writers. I had a blast, and I hope you did, too.

And now, with just a bit of sadness, I present the final links of the Feast:

General Posts

The gang at Manga Village use a slow manga week as a springboard for recommending Takahashi books to new readers. I can't fault any of their picks, though I'd go personally with Rumic World/Theater, despite it being out of print.

InuYasha

Kate Darcey, The Manga Critic, offers five reasons to read InuYasha, in case the idea of a 50 volume series is intimidating to you.

Maison Ikkoku

Michelle Smith of Soliloquy in Blue jumps in with a review of the last 6 volumes of Maison Ikkoku, 10 to 15. A nice closure piece of this popular series, which is appropriate since we're on the last day of the Feast.

Linda Loves Takahashi

Linda of Animemiz really did an awesome job of taking hold of this week of Takahashi and spending a lot of her time discussing various aspects of the Takahashi canon. Here are her final three articles:

Here's a profile of Fire Tripper, one of Takahashi's many short stories.

This is Linda's review of the Ranma 1/2 artbook, which is kinda funny to me because I think at some point this year I said something about how Takahashi might never earn an artbook but I love her little character expressions and poses. Shows you what I know!

Finally, a defense of Rin-Ne. It's funny, after I pointed out the so-so reception to Rin-Ne, I see some positive articles. You have to love the way there's so much room for everyone under the banner of Takahashi fandom!

Okay, that's it for the Feast! See you at the next host's table!
