Yes. And it's not even close. She's one of the most prolific people in the industry.

Kubo won against Takei too?

Kinda surprising to see how highly ot thinks of him when he's often cited as the quintessential example of a bad mangaka by most

it's not that Kubo is a good writer, rather Takei's writing quality has become a bigger and bigger pile of s*** as the years have went on

this is a guy who in his shaman king sequel started up an arc that barely linked up with anything else about random mook army ghosts fighting other mook army, got canned because of it, then switched to a different publisher to do a new sequel and almost immediately went back to the same s*** arc again except with even less connection to the actual story

the guy just does not have any good ideas left

When people say that OT is tsundere for Kubo they aren't joking around. Even then he really isn't anywhere near as bad as people like to portray him, he just makes for a good punching bag.

I thought the sequel initially got canned because the magazine it was in went under

Fake news

While there are plenty of stupid complaints against him like not treating black people with enough RESPEK there are just as many valid complaints

Compare that to TakeI who's got a clean slate besides flowers or Shima who's only hated for accidentally f***ing a 16 year old even though it has nothing to do with his works

whenever a magazine ends, anything they think is worth continuing gets shifted to other magazines or the publisher's online or app service

Ranma 1/2 was pretty fun. What the hell happened with Inuyasha?
But know this, I wrap my rascal TWO times, cause I like it to be joyless and without sensation... as a way of punishing supermodels.

I've always heard Inuyasha quoted as an example of stretching things out for a million years and Rin-ne was pretty boring but then again I didn't watch much (and this is on mangaka not anime) so I guess I can't really vote fairly
