Boy does time fly, we’re already up to the fifth chapter and so far this manga seems choc full of the same charm and gentle humor we’ve come to expect from a Rumiko Takahashi manga.
It didn’t take long to solve the mystery of why Sakura-chan can see ghosts and we get a sort of answer about the nature of Rinne-kun.
Turns out Sakura’s ability to see ghosts is thanks to Rinne’s aunt getting her candy on her first visit to the world and Rinne tells Sakura that he’s human… sort of.
Well I guess it wouldn’t do to give everything away all at once now would it? In any case this is shaping up to be something I know I’m going to follow regularly.
We don’t have many actual characters so far, but I’m already invested in the budding relationship between Rinne and Sakura, much as I got sucked into the relationship between InuYasha and Kagome.
I like Sakura, she seems pretty smart and strong willed and well Rinne is just so damned cute half the time, although he does have a little bit of that bluster that was so much a part of InuYasha’s character.
I eagerly await next week.
