Inuyasha, Ranma ½ Creator Rumiko Takahashi Inducted into Eisner Hall of Fame

Fourth time is the charm for the legendary manga creator

 

Mangaka Rumiko Takahashi has a storied career in the industry, from classics like Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, and Ranma ½ to more modern hits like Inuyasha and RIN-NE. The 2018 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards went down at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 this weekend, and the festivities included Takahashi being formally inducted into the Hall of Fame. 

 

Fourth time was definitely the charm for Takahashi, who was nominated this year as well as 2014, 2016, and 2017. Creative professionals throughout the publishing, editing, retail, and other related comics industries came together to vote online for Hall of Fame induction.
