Through its relatively new official Twitter account, the author Rumiko Takahashi (Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha) published an update responding to a new question from his followers. «[Updates at 7:00 pm every day] Rumiko Takahashi FAQ part 9 (repost) -" In your works, the relationship between the hero and heroin always adapts very well. Although they do not clearly say "I love you" each other, you can realize that they have feelings on each other. Do you have any advice on how to express this type of "link" between the hero and heroin, or is there something that is more important to you? "
Rumiko answered the question with an image text, which expressed the following: "My opinion is this. When the hero and heroine say "I love you" each other in a manga, I have the impression that the story ends there. That is why it is important not to go ahead of this fact. Then I think the two should go through many misunderstandings along the way, although they really want to the other, they must continue wondering: "Will he / she really love me / her in the same way that I love him?" In this situation, when something is happening and discover the answer, the feeling of satisfaction is indescribable. "I love you" is not any sentence. I want the reader to realize that they two really feel like that, but I have to make everyone but the hero and heroin realize. I am always thinking about ways to develop this type of narratives ».
Since its debut in 1978, Rumiko Takahashi has written and illustrated sleeves such as Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, Mermaid Saga, Takahashi Rumiko Gekijou, Ranma 1/2, Ichi Pound Non Fukuin and Inuyasha.
