Sentai Filmworks Licenses Rumiko Takahashi's RIN-NE Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
North American anime publisher Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed the television anime of Rumiko Takahashi's Kyōkai no Rinne (RIN-NE of the Boundary or RIN-NE) manga. The company plans to release the series digitally and on home video.
Viz, the publisher of most of Takahashi's manga in North America, describes RIN-NE's story:
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!
Keytalk will perform the show's opening theme song "Ōkaranman," and the band Passepied will perform the ending theme song "Tokinowa."
The anime will run for 25 episodes. Seiki Sugawara (D-Fragments) is directing the anime at Brains Base (One Week Friends), and Michiko Yokote (Ranma ½, Shirobako) is in charge of the series scripts. Akimitsu Honma is composing the music, and NHK Enterprises, NHK, and Shogakukan Shueisha Production are producing.
