A long time flagship mangaka of Weekly Shonen Sunday, Rumiko Takahashi is one of the wealthiest women in Japan. The manga she creates (and its anime adaptations) are very popular in the United States and Europe where they have been released as both manga and anime in English translation. Her works are relatively famous worldwide, and many of her series were some of the forerunners of early English language manga to be released in the nineties. Takahashi is also the best selling female comics artist in history; well over 100 million copies of her various works have been sold.

She enrolled in KOIKE Kazuo’s Gekiga Sonjuku as one of inaugural students along with YAMAMOTO Atsuji, AKANE Koka, CARIBU Marley, SAKUMA Akira, KIKUCHI Hideyuki, KUDO Kazuya, KATAOKA Tetsuji, SHIKI Takashi, TANAKA Akio, SAOTOME Masayuki, MIYAOKA Hiroshi and TAKEDA Masatoshi.

KAMIJYO Akimine, SHIMIZU Aya, CHIBA Konami, FUJISAWA Moyashi and SAITO Kuniko were once her assistants.

Takahashi once had a meeting with Sakuma and TORIYAMA Akira about a collaboration work, but it seems it ended up with only Sakuma and Toriyama participating in the joint project.
