Kyoukai no Rinne

This has an old-timey feel to it, with a pair of deadpan protagonists. Nothing spectacular, but entertaining.

Well, it's Takahashi's most recent work, so I'll watch it for that alone.  Assuming it ever gets subbed by a reputable and legal source, of course.

Well Crunchy will be taking care of this one and thank goodness for that because the fansubs for this are nigh unreadable.

Holy cow.  It's so damned Takahashi.  If I had a single beef, it is that the cooperation between the two protagonists grows rather quickly.  I get that our heroine is not exactly new to "weird", but she sure takes a lot of shit in stride here.  Naturally, because this is Takahashi, she's also completely capable of handling the bizarre with her own no-nonsense fashions.

This is Takahashi getting back to the comedy, which is good.  Reminded me of the quick fire jokes of Maisson Ikkoku and Ranma 1/2.  I'm pleased.

Wonder how this'll hold up when it finally hits the shounen fight'n route as the OP suggests it will. Biggest issue this one has so far is that it hasn't done much to distinguish itself. Pretty much everything done here feels like it was handled with more pizzazz last year in Noragami.

I'm reminded of Gingitsune, what with the super laid back atmosphere. A character was about to die, and I was grinning like I was watching Scooby-Doo getting chased by the monster of the week. The protagonists really add to the effect by being utterly unflappable.

Holy crap but is Mamiya Sakura a trusting individual.  Don't get me wrong, cute fluffy mascot character looking bunnies don't normally set my alarm buttons off either (unless they're clowns... evil, evil clowns), but wandering around Dead Land with a giant rabbit and just going along with whatever he says is straight up ****ing stupid, yo.  I'm getting that she's not exactly dealing with a full deck here, and is sort of desensitized to weirdness, but God damn.

Also, somewhere in the Takahashi universe, Nabiki died and is really old and is now someone's grandmother.

Loved it.

2:

Not nearly as fun as the first episode but still enjoyable.

It may just be my cynical western ways, disregarding my innate fear of mascotesque figures, but when Usagi-san was usherering Mamiya Sakura away from the festival and into the woods...I was certain that I had stumbled into a hentai.

I am both saddened and glad that cute short haired girl was not indicative of bland harem series. Though who knows. Granny had it going on!

Also. Zakuro...idk why idk why I keep associating vaguely similar anime this season. This one being a particular stretch.

The progression of Rokudou and Sakura's relationship felt incredibaly natural. It was a pleasure to watch. Miroku's introducton on the other hand...with no explanation provided for his agressive methods and "all spirits are the enemy" perspective he comes off as extremly out of place. This is largely due to the portrayal of spirits in the show thus far. They have mainly been comedic. With many beimg just hapless schlubs pining for some girl. So whether,as an exorcist, hes been raised to beleive otherwise or some spirit turned monster ate his dog remains to be seen. Though a killed relative plotline would be equally out of place.

Then we have Rokoudou's financial situation. Although he was doing so reluctanly, Rokoudou was makiing it rain. So as humorous as it is to see him bitch and stress over money, such jokes will lose all value should this happen/continue to again.

About time this show got uproariously funny.  This was classic Takahashi schlock, but it still works and still makes me laugh.  Also, the animation budget got a bit of a pinch this time didn't it?  Some seriously off model moments here.

O.o a two-parter. That's a first.

I legitimately thought the demon kid was the exorcist kid in his "true form". Not sure if that says something about me or overly generic character designs. But, exorcist kid didn't make an appearance this episode so...maybe?

Rokudou sure was zealous in his younger morr wealthy days. Protecting the spirits of rabbits, goldfish, and even cicada. Also, rabbits, goldfish, and even cicada have spirits. The poor demon boy just wanted to do his homework. Why couldn't Rokudou-chan spare just the spirit of a single insect?

All in all show remains fun.

(The gag with the scythe was hilarious. Even if it was just a rehash of the bible in episode 5)

Did this series always look this bad? Resembled a crappy Flash job you'd see on Adult Swim in too many scenes.

Mamiya Sakura remains my favorite girl of the season.

Still no followup on that foreboding Roukudou look alike.

And please continue to forget about Holy Ash-kun. The show is better and more enjoyable without him.

"K-sempai, we love you"
"Sorry ladies, he is already dead."
"We don't care! We'll die too. Just as long as we can be with K-sempai!"
K-sempai: "ladies please. Im flattered. But you'll have to wait until your 40...I only go for...mature women"
"...**** this faggot. What a creep. We're glad he's dead."

At least the girls drew a line.

I want aware this was gonna run for 25 episodes. Guess that explains why they kinda forgot about the evil organization that wants Roukudou outta the way.

As with Ranma 1/2, most of the attempts of the villains to be villainous are so horrendously absurd that only a 4 year old would fall for any of their tricks.  Naturally, there will always be a character who WILL fall for everything.  EVERYTHING.

The face matches the personality.  I said earlier that she's awfully casual about being taken to the world of the afterlife and hanging out with a guy who takes souls to the other side, not to mention blindly trusting a giant rabbit and following him to whatever doom.  She definitely has the Vulcan thing going on.

I honestly can't think of another character quite like her. I've seen countless Rei expys, stone-faced warriors, heartless villains, and the like, but for all of them, the expectation for that behavior is built into the character, and it features heavily in their development. At the very least, the mask eventually cracks.

I haven't seen all the episodes, but Mamiya has no trauma or serious unpleasantness in her life that would explain the poker face, and I don't remember seeing her really smile or be upset (can anyone clear this up?). To me, it looks like she wanders through each episode stoned out of her mind.

It might be a plot point later.  Remember she did visit the Rinne no Wa earlier in her life.  Maybe something happened that made her particularly logical and emotionless.  Either that, or because she's been able to see spirits since she was a child, all of this is really passe for her.  Kind of like viewing the end of the world, a car crash afterward seems kind of minor and pointless.

Oh ye Gods, the misunderstandings are in full swing, and everybody... EVERYBODY... has expert, uncanny timing.  They must read the script.

Anyway, this episode has the characters start to notice just how emotionless Mamiya Sakura is, even she herself doesn't understand a lot of what makes her go along with Rinne's stuff or why nothing that happens to her phases her.  So, I'm guessing this is an actual plot point that will show up later.

Also, this afterlife is weird as shit.  You'd think with all the damashigami running amok that the human race would have been doomed years ago.  Furthermore, apparently you can just suck anybody's soul out for economic gain.  This might be an even worse place to go when you die than Soul Society in Bleach.

I think the damashigami is an organization formed quite recently, but its just my guess. The damashigami send humans to be reincarnated anyway so I am very sure humans won't die out coz of them, unless no humans deserve to be reincarnated as humans again. I take what Kain did there as a a joke, but now that I think about it, there is definitely some shady goings on in the Rinne no Wa for him to be able to do that.

19: If RInne's dad can put a security lock on the hoop of justice, I am very sure he could have just taken it for himself even if he couldnt use it (he's a criminal so of course he cant use it). But he kept it inside the chest for some reason, and even reinstalled the seal and lock on it. He was probably able to read the text on the chest too. There is something about him more than meets the eye it seems.

Otherwise, this episode was more epic than funny, which I found new for this series.

That was absolutely delightful. In particular, the bit where Rinne starts skipping, but it's shown at first as only his head bobbing, was brilliant. He must really like this girl.

20: Or he likes the idea of getting treated to food at Mamiya Sakura's house. Seeing Ageha and Jumonji prove themselves very useless yet again is really fun for whatever reason.

The comedy is starting to hit its stride.  I'm so glad this is closer to Ranma than it is Inu Yasha.

Apparently Jumonji has been holding back all this time.  Makes you wonder why.  Maybe he doesn't have the power on his own to use some of these tools?  Maybe that's why he's at home while the parents are off doing the family business.

24: The QUALITY becomes part of the fun itself. You know, I just realized that Rinne and gang are beginning to treat Sabato and his secretary like a normal functioning person would to a bum of a friend: disdain with a mix of pity and compassion.

Dawwwww.

Which is pretty much how I think of the show as a whole. Nothing spectacular, just good old-fashioned romance, back from the days when girls were ladies, boys were gentlemen, and jack shit happened.

7/10.

25: Props to Kyokai no Rinne for having some of the most soothing soundtracks i've ever heard in my life!!

This episode made me realize that Sakura's non-reaction is a great part of what made Kyokai no Rinne so much fun, I guess she's too used to seeing spirits that she feels odd without it now.

Jumonji, Sabato, Ageha and Bijin (Beautiful) (Ageha's sister (I got spoiled by the manga a bit and yes, that is her name indeed)) are enough evidence to the contrary.

Already getting new characters.  Hopefully it will freshen up this dried out prune.  Don't get me wrong, I liked Rinne, but by the end the gags were getting a little old, and the lack of variety of antagonists and protagonists wasn't helping.  Rinne's dad is my least favorite character, and not because he's loathsome, but because he's just a twat.  He is the Happosai of this show.  Happosai is great in small doses, but make him the crux of a season and I just tune out.

Also, animation looks much crisper but that might just be first episode mirages.

Ranko's character design; Takahashi showing her age..

Also, they're really whoring that "imbue a an inanimate object with a soul" device.

And these one-offs are far sadder than the narrative suggests.

Oh, I don't care what you guys do.  There's no rule here about only promoting legit sources vs. potentially illegal or financially troublesome ones.  Shit, we all torrented once.  I just stick to legit sources now because I'm an unhip imbecile, if you believe /a/.

I was just wonder if they were going to get it since they have seasons 1 an 2, but since you're apparently on episode 2 of season 3, I am guessing we're not getting it on CR.
