When did Ryunosuke Akutagawa start writing haiku?

In November, he published his short story Rashomon in Teikoku Mongaku, a literary magazine. In early 1916, he published Hana ("The Nose"), which attracted a letter of praise from Soseki and secured Akutagawa his first taste of fame. It was also at this time that he started writing haiku under the haigo (or pen-name) Gaki. In April 1917, he published Kegon ("The Eye") as part for an amateur contest held by Asahi Shimbun, one of Japan's largest newspapers. This marked the beginning of his career as a professional writer.

Ryunosuke Akutagawa was born on January 4, 1892 in Tokyo. His father was a government employee who died when Ryunosuke was only six. After graduating from elementary school, he attended middle school before entering Takushoku University. However, he left school to work as an editor for a newspaper chain. In 1915, he became interested in Japanese literature after reading The Tale of Genji and decided to write stories himself. He submitted his first manuscript - a short novel called Rinchi - to a publishing house but it wasn't accepted. Two years later, he managed to get his second book, Hana, published. This success encouraged him to submit more manuscripts until finally he got a book titled Kegon published in April 1917. This made him realize how difficult it was to be a professional writer in 1920s Japan when many famous writers were struggling to make a living.

When did Akutagawa write Rashomon?

1915 The university's literary newspaper, Teikoku Bungaku (Imperial Literature), published "Rashomon" in 1915, when he was 23 years old. It was just the author's third attempt into the short story form. The piece was then published as the title tale of Akutagawa's debut collection two years later. It has been said that "Rashomon" is the perfect short story; it tells its audience exactly what they want to know about the events of the past while leaving everything else ambiguous.

It is a classic example of the mystery novel, featuring detectives searching for clues and informants who may have seen something but are not willing to talk due to the consequences. The protagonist, Okamoto Ronshu, is a lawyer who takes on cases where no one will help him. He decides to travel off by himself into the forest with only his servant as a guide, and during his search he comes across the scene of a crime: A murder has been committed and several important items are missing. With no one to turn to, Okamoto must find the truth by himself.

Akutagawa used this story as the basis for his first collection, which was published two years after writing it. In this book, titled Rashomon (Red Pine Tree), the main character is given the task of investigating a murder case in Kyoto. He travels there alone by horse and cart, and during his investigation, other cases come up that seem similar to the first one.

When did Kazuki Takahashi start his manga career?

Takahashi began his career as a manga artist as a youngster in 1982. Tokio no taka (Dou Hui Wang noYing, Fighting Hawk), his debut book, was released in 1990. Tennenshoku Danji Buray (Tian Ran Se Nan Er BURAY), one of his first works, was released in two volumes from 1991 to 1992. In the meantime, he also started working on Dramatic Tensei (Gekiga) series which was published between 1989 and 1995. These days, he is best known for his Gintama comic books and anime adaptation.

His early work focused on fighting games and drama but later on he moved onto comedy manga such as Gintama, which has become one of Japan's most popular comics.

When was the first Chibi Maruko chan story published?

The first story, titled "Chibi Maruko-chan," appeared in the August 1986 issue of the shojo manga magazine Ribon. Other semi-autobiographical stories by the author were published in Ribon and Ribon Original in 1984 and 1985, respectively, and were included in the first "Chibi Maruko-chan" tankobon in 1987. These later stories are set in different time periods from the original story and feature different characters.

The earliest evidence we have for Chibi Maruko-chan is from her debut year (1986) with two separate publications: one in shōjo manga and one in ribon. This indicates that Chibi Maruko-chan's popularity was already strong enough to support multiple editions. However, it is possible that other versions may have existed previously without any trace of them today.

After her debut, Chibi Maruko-chan continued to appear regularly in Ribon until its cancellation in 1990. The artist also contributed chapters to Ribon Original before it too ended its run in 1985.

So basically Chibi Maruko-chan debuted in 1986 and disappeared from publication in 1990. There was a short revival in 1991 with the release of the first Chibi Maruko-chan movie which served as a sequel/prequel to the original series.

Nowadays there are many variants of Chibi Maruko-chan available in various media including anime, manga, drama CDs, video games, plush dolls, etc.
