I didn't realize she was still writing these...

From Anime News Network:

"Celebrated artist Rumiko Takahashi (Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha) will publish the latest chapter in her annual Rumic Theater series in this year's fifth issue (on sale on February 20) of Shogakukan's Big Comic Original magazine. The announcement was made in the magazine's current fourth issue (released on February 5). The "Shiawase List" (Happiness List) short story will center on a housewife who catches a momentary glimpse of her tranquil neighborhood's true form. As usual for new Takahashi works, the one-shot manga will have a color opening page. Viz Media has published two volumes of the Rumic Theater (Takahashi Rumiko Gekij┼Ź) short stories in North America."
I can't believe I missed out on all of this Rumiko Takahashi awesomeness. Fire Tripper was the first anime I ever saw, so I've always had a soft spot for the Rumic World stories (even the crazy ones).

Note: I'm especially sorry I haven't had a chance to read "Shake Your Buddha", which Wikipedia informs me is about a debate between "the future Buddha and an idiot yam fanatic during a food shortage over whose methods can lead to Japan's survival".

Hey, who doesn't love an idiot yam fanatic?
