Select stories from Rumic Theater have been published in the west by Viz Media. However, Takahashi is better known world-wide for her more mainstream works, starting with her first major hit, Urusei Yatsura, first published in 1978. Her other mainstream hits include the seinen romantic comedy Maison Ikkoku, the gender-bending comedy Ranma 1/2, the action-adventure epic Inuyasha, and more recent hits such as Kyoukai no Rin-ne (which concluded in 2017) and MAO which is currently ongoing. Her lesser-known works include her Mermaid Saga horror anthology.

Most of Takahashi's works have been adapted into anime and live-action series in Japan, with many of them receiving an English-language adaptation in the west. Viz Media is currently reprinting Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, and Mermaid Saga, with her more recent series Kyoukai no Rin-ne and Mao receiving first prints. The Inuyasha manga is currently available for digital purchase with the anime series currently getting a Blu-Ray release to coincide with the current sequel series Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon.
