Rumiko Takahashi's Rinne to Run in Sync in U.S., Japan

posted on by Egan Loo
U.S.'s TheRumicWorld.com, Japan's Shonen Sunday to debut manga on April 22

The North American publisher Viz Media has launched a website, TheRumicWorld.com, where it will post the first chapter of Rumiko Takahashi's upcoming Kyōkai no Rinne manga on April 22 — the same day that the chapter is published in Japan. TheRumicWorld.com website and Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine will update with the same new chapter every week. The story will center on Sakura Mamiya, a girl who was able to see ghosts after a certain incident when she was young. One day, she gets a mysterious visitation.

The manga will be known as RIN-NE in English. Viz Media had announced that it will publish this manga in North America this year. The Shonen Sunday magazine had first revealed Takahashi's new series in February; she had ended her last work, Inuyasha, in the same magazine last June. Takahashi's earlier works include Urusei Yatsura, Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2, One-Pound Gospel, and Rumic Theater. Viz Media has been releasing most of Takahashi's manga in North America, and it has also released many of their anime adaptations.
