Ever since a strange encounter when she was a child, Sakura Mamiya has had the power to see ghosts. Now in high school, she just wishes the ghosts would leave her alone! When her mysterious classmate Rinne Rokudo shows up, Sakura finds herself following him into the amazing world between life and death!
Rinne finds himself acting as a mentor for the shinigami Shoma, an elementary school student from the afterlife. Although Shoma is supposed to be learning how to help spirits pass on, he only wants to go after the biggest evil spirits he can find—despite the fact that he’s never done it before! The devil Masato offers Shoma an easy road to success, but can Rinne show the young shinigami the right path?

Rin-ne stands out from Takahashi's other manga for many reasons. Firstly, the art work is more detailed and beautiful. Also, the main characters, Rinne and Sakura, are very different to the ones we are used to. After years of loud mouthed, violent male characters (Inuyasha, Ranma etc) it's refreshing to watch Rin-ne, a mainly calm character, who only resorts to slapstick violent and his biggest concern is poverty. He also openly shows his feeling for the main female character, Sakura, something very unusual in a Takahashi manga- volume 8 is a perfect example, where we see Rinne blush on numerous occasions because of Sakura.
The main female character is also very different from Lum, Akane and Kagome. We're used to energetic and highly emotional female characters, and Sakura is not one of them. Many fans fault her for this, but I think it's great to see Takashi present someone very different- there's only so many times the same personality can be used, after all. Sakura is very calm, but it this lack of hysteria and emotion that makes the situations around her funnier- almost like Sesshomaru. It's also unusual to have to guess the main female character's feelings. Usually the guy keeps us guessing, but from start we could tell Rinne liked Sakura- however, her feelings are harder to deciper!
The volume also marks the start of new material for those of you who were following Shounen Sundays weekly releases.
I love this manga and can't wait for the next volume!
Sakura felt like a side character in this volume and the romance between her and Rin-ne was a nebulous tease, but their characters drew the stories along. It was a good read.
I feel like by volume eleven that we should have hit SOME sort of climax, but it's just story after story.
However, I still readily await the next volume...
