Rumic Theater

Ok, so for the past year or so I've been working on getting Takahashi Rumiko's Rumic Theater short story series translated into English.

Some background:
This is a long running one-shot series (since 1987). A new chapter is released once in year in Big Comic Original, a monthly seinin manga magazine. The stories are usually slice of life, bittersweet kitchen sink dramas.

I've passed the halfway point, so I thought now would be a good time to collect all the chapters in one place. I'll add links for the missing chapters as I release them.
