Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon

Manga creator Rumiko Takahashi opened up a Twitter account the other day with the help of her editorial staff, letting fans ask the legendary creator of Ranma ½Urusei Yatsura, and Inuyasha, whatever they like. The first question that the manga creator answer was what her usual schedule looked like, and it’s as busy as you could imagine for a creator as popular as Takahashi.

During production time,

In the morning – Pencil in 7 to 8 character sheets

12 PM – Lunch and Housework

4 PM – Reading and Housework

7 PM – Dinner and Housework

9 PM – Drawing

The next day

9 AM – Finish drawing, go to bed

12 PM – Lunch and Housework

4 PM – Drawing

7 PM – Break and Dinner

8 PM – Resume Drawing

The next day

9 AM – Finish work

While the question asked for a daily schedule, it seems like Takahashi runs on a sort of three-day schedule during production time, where the 63-year-old only sleeps for a few hours on the second day and drawing all night long! Hopefully, on her off days, Takahashi is able to rest and sleep! 

The latest anime based on work from Rumiko TakahashiYashahime: Princess Half-Demon, is scheduled to start its second season in Fall 2021, with the first season streaming on Crunchyroll.
