The You Know You've Been Reading Too Much Rumiko Takahashi When List

This is the first and "official" You Know You've Been Reading Too much Rumiko Takahashi When list, made up and brainstormed by yours truely. I'm sure you've seen the Sailormoon and Ranma lists of the same genre. This basically follows the same general rules, but with a few exeptions.

It'll be from her manga work only, no anime references, since it's not canon. It's also has to be a basic generalization from all her work, but if I accept it, it _can_ be a reference to only two or three of her works (one only if it's a really good idea). I want it to be from any and ALL of her works, from Urusei Yatsura to the Mermaid Saga, from Masion Ikkoku to Inu-Yasha.

Please e-mail me any of your ideas, and I will gladly add them to the list if it fits ^_^. I want this list to grow and become of the longest lists on the web related to anime/manga stuff. So help, and contribute!

I would like to thank Shadow6865 for some of the contributions. If you have any, please e-mail me. I would love some Mermaid Saga, Rumik World, and One-Pound Gospel ones, since I don't really know anything about those. Thanks!
