Kyokai no RINNE: It’s All InuYasha’s Fault

You know, I wasn’t going to read this. Ever. If I ever was going to read this, it wouldn’t be until it was close to finishing, and considering that Rumiko Takahashi’s manga usually run pretty long, I wasn’t expecting to start this for another, oh say, 50 years. However, with the recent great news that InuYasha will be coming back for a concluding season (which I hope will be 3 years in length), I just had to get me some Rumiko. I figured:

Maybe I’ll check out her new work.

I did, and unfortunately, I will be following this pretty closely, and will not be able to wait years for it to finish.

Kyokai no RINNE

I like this shit.

This is doing to me the same thing that InuYasha did. It’s being awesome. I love the two main characters, and the whole Shinigami thing. I mean, it’s kind of similar to Bleach, and by “kinda” I of course mean, “exactly” (so far anyway).

Basically it’s about a girl who can see ghosts (Sakura), and who one day sees a kid who happens to be a shinigami. Hmmmm. Almost the exact same thing as the beginning of Bleach, except in Bleach, Ichigo (Equivelent of Sakura) becomes a substitute shinigami, while in Kyokai no RINNE, Sakura just helps Rinne (equilvelent of Rukia) with his job but does’t become anything official.

So yea, I love it after one chapter, a chapter, I might add, which was nice and long. I hope that they’re all a good 40 pages in length. This seems to be a great manga. Of course, I will also say that I thought the same things about Urusei Yatsura, and Ranma 1/2 (okay I never actually read the manga, but I thought this about the anime), and it turns out that I got really bored of the repetition after a while. Hopefully Kyokai no RINNE won’t be too repetitive, and will have a continuous plot like InuYasha, which was easily Rumiko’s best work.

Now, I will end with a picture of those who have scantilated said manga. Arigato amigos (that’s right, I’m TRI-LINGUAL MUTHA FUCKAS!).

  1. @ Dave Baranyi: I’m not scaning or translating anything, someone else did that.

    @ Seinime: I thought the same thing.

    By the way, sometime soon (possibly in this post), someone will be posting my 1000th comment. OoooooOo!

  2. I hate you – now I’m reading this, which means I’ve made a ten thousand year commitment to it which will inevitably end in frustration.

  3. I loved this . . . but got bored around the 8th chapter . . . I want an interesting arc and new characters, like with ranma 1/2 and inuyasha . . . why this ones let me down ;_; first few chapters had been so good!

  5. Personally, I enjoy Rinne !! It may not be Takahashi’s very best, but I love the characters and idea behind the story. I am so sad to hear that not only A- you never fnished the Ranma 1/2 series but also B- that you never read the manga !! In closing I just wanna say that InuYasha is the greatest series ever and Rumiko is my hero 🙂

    • I liked Rinne too I gotta pick it back up…… I’m a big fan of Takahashi. And I think I actually did end up reading Ranma 1/2 (at least the ending of it). Good ending. I WILL someday finish Ranma 1/2, then retire from anime altogether. The problem is I keep running into episode that feature Happosai, who just fucks up any goodness the show has. Without Happosai, this anime/manga would be one of the best!
