Comment from Takashi Shiina:
“I’m Takashi Shiina, who asked to do a comicalization after learning it was a project about Inuyasha. Thank you very much. You don’t have to remember my name, so please just buy the manga assuming that Takahashi-sensei herself drew it!”
Comment from Rumiko Takahashi:
“I thought it was a joke, but you’re really going to draw it for me, aren’t you? Thank you, Shiina-sensei. What a gorgeous comicalization! I’m really looking forward to seeing Shiina-sensei’s beautiful drawing of Sesshomaru. And I’m waiting for your new work!”
