ok, i have something to say. what Rumiko is strong at if NOTHING else is makeing an intresting setting.
and if my memory is correct she has fallen face first in every attempt at makeing a long term manga, with 1 exceprion. anything under 10 volumes however is a prety decent read.
and am i the ONLY person who sees that this is being set up for a long term manga? i will give it to her though, the first 100-200 chapters are going to be great. but when she pulls out the o its going to end, SUDDEN PLOT EXTENDING DEVELOPEMENT card, than you will see what im talking about. and here let me guess it. he suddonly fills the quota, but they forgot intrest.
now let me get onto another point, emperor26 mentioned the artstyle. look back to Ranma, or even Urusei Yatsura and tell me you dont notice it. for there time they were well drawn in comparason with other manga of the time. but this, just look at it. look at the characters, than look at the backround, and tell me you dont see it. she makes the character look passable, not to good, but detailed wnough that later you dont wonder who people are because there are so many who look alike. but backrounds are cookiecutter and blank sace a few that give an illution as to being well drawn. shie is a compleat minimalist and that style is whowing its age. character desighn aside just look at the backround. isnt she one of the wealthiest women in japan? and she made the wealth off manga? you think they could throw some assistance who are good at backround art her way.
sorry i got off on a tangent there. but to sum it all up, this will be an intresting read, which will fall on its face. it has bad art, but its passable, and i have NO hope for the future of this manga given the mangakas track record with ending them.
as of now (chapter 8) i give it a 9, and i will uptate that every so offen as i read more and more.
So far I find the story interesting (or at least it has potential), but the main girl is seriously lacking depth. Actually, the whole story is too. Kagome and Inuyasha from Inuyasha were very well thought out and "deep" characters. Sakura and Rinne from this story however lack that certain something that was so appealing about Inuyasha. Sakura is a particularly bland character, who shows little to no emotion and hardly provides any comedy to the series (one of Kagomes strong points). Rinne is the same way, but not as bad. With two boring characters as a couple (or future couple, whatever) it's going to be a very slow read. I'm hoping that once the main story is through being introduced, that Takahashi will delve deeper into her characters (and the story) and create something that readers can connect with.
I see a lot of potential in this series, and I hope it comes through. Afterall, Inuyasha is one of my personal favorites, and i hope to see Rinne turn into one as well.
I find both main characters lacking if compared to Ranma and Inuyasha. They do not have strong personalities and especially the girl feels dull , boring and plain. The main guy is not that bad but seems to be rather shallow as well...
This series is ok, but doesn't have the strength that Ranma or Inuyahsa had, maybe because the leads are very unimpressive so far.
I think it will remain being a mediocre manga,nothing bad but nothing really good about it either.
Will She Fail... NEVER!
One thing that I admire about Rumiko Takahashi, is that I've read one chapter, and I already see it's potential, as of now, it can be a mixture between the Ranma 1/2, which is set in fairly modern times, and Inuyasha, which has the Ghost/Demons premise, all in all I can say i'm not hating it, obviously it's RT delivering another great adventure, as this is the first one that she's put out while i'm conscious of it, i'm glad... nothing less or more than 10. One would say, it can get allot better.
Update: I feel I have been on another Rumiko Romp. By that i mean, i feel as if i'm reading one of her works, and by THAT i mean i'm really enjoying it. As of Chapter 42, It's doing exactly what It set out to do, It's establishing it's calm, peaceful and supernatural atmosphere. I also appreciate the fact that Rumiko didn't bring back her classic archetype characters. Where they are always fighting and never really being true to their feelings. Because in Rinne, the characters... Kinda like each other. It's really passive, which i love... I'm tired of stories where girls' hearts are fluttering from their first meeting, and a guy who seriously wants to impress or go out with her. It's calm, I love Sakura the most, because she is SO calm with just about everything, In all reactions, be it a potential love interest, or being dragged to a the Damashigami world of hell. Rinne is a great funny character, more mature than Inuyasha, and less indecisive.
For all who think that you may be prejudice to think that just because it's Rumiko, it has to be based on THAT fact that we like it, is just plain ludicrous. We all have Bias and Prejudice notions in EVERYTHING we do, So sure i'm prejudice, but I'm also prejudice to people that kill people, because of the fact that they KILLED people! Anyway, you looking for an Epic adventure like Inuyasha, Then you should read it just to gauge your taste. But if you like anything else, regardless of Genre, then you will definitely enjoy this Romp as i say. It's still a 10 for me! Have a nice day!

Another Great Hit!
After 13 years, Rumiko Takahashi has found a great hit once again with Kyoukai no Rinne, her first manga since Inuyasha.
Her art style is a great improvement in comparison to her previous work, but its the pace of the story that kept me reading the moment it came out. The cast are well thought out and honestly, quite different to begin with. The one thing I hope won't happen is if this manga goes for another 12 long years.
Other than that, I'm looking forward to more chapters from this series.
