This year's 50th issue of Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday magazine is reporting on Wednesday that Rumiko Takahashi's Kyōkai no Rinne (Rinne of the Boundary) supernatural comedy manga has a "super important announcement" planned for next week's issue. The text on the page reads, "Afterschool time is about to get a whole lot more fun!"
Viz describes the manga:
As a child Sakura Mamiya mysteriously disappeared in the woods behind her grandma's home. She returned whole and healthy, but since then she has had the power to see ghosts. Now a teenager, she just wishes the ghosts would leave her alone! At school, the desk next to Sakura's has been empty since the start of the school year. Then one day her always-absent classmate Rinne Rokudo shows up, and he's far more than what he seems!
Takahashi, also known for her Ranma 1/2 and Maison Ikkoku works, began serializing the manga in Shonen Sunday in 2009 after ending her long-running series Inuyasha in the same magazine. The manga has constantly ranked in on Japan's best-seller list.
An anime commercial starring Mariya Ise (Yes! Precure 5, Hatsukoi Limited) as Sakura Mamiya, Kouki Uchiyama (Soul Eater, Nisekoi) as Rinne Rokudo, and Rie Kugimiya (The [email protected], Gintama) as Rinne's assistant black cat, Rokumon, premiered in 2009:
Sakura: They say that if you put an offering in the instrument shelter box and make a wish, there's something out there that will solve your spiritual problems...
Rinne: Wait, you can see me?
Rokumon: Roar! This is bad! The boundary has been broken!
Rinne: Well, I guess it can't be helped, since it's them.
Sakura: They're just way too energetic.
Rokumon: Entertainment that breaks limits!
All: Shonen Sunday!
Shogakukan will publish the 23rd compiled volume in Japan on November 19, and Viz Media will ship the 16th compiled volume in North America on Tuesday. Viz Media releases the manga in North America under the title Rin-ne.
