Ranma was very original and naturally funny

I'm happy to see such an honor go to such a deserving manga-ka as Takahashi Rumiko. I've been a big fan of her work since the late 80s when I became aware of it, through Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku and the Mermaid stories.

Even after all these years I still have full manga sets of UY, MI, Ranma and the Mermaid stories among my library of books. Eagerly awaiting what she comes up with next!

Congratulations! I personally am glad to see that the word "manga" itself is accepted in the English language. Manga are a totally different genre in comparison to comic books and the work that this creative woman has made is being rightfully recognized!
