See my post on Ushio and Tora – I just don’t have time to do a full post on Kyoukai no Rinne this week, alas. And that’s a real shame because it’s great to have this series back – it’s a good season for comedy, but there’s no other anime comedy out there that quite shares Rinne’s sensibility.
The series gets off to a rollicking start and things haven’t changed a whole lot. Ageha is still a world-class idiot and Mamiya Sakura keeps walking in on she and Rinne in compromising positions, Rinne is still broke and the humor is determinedly offbeat. We do meet a new character – Oboro (Matsuoka Yoshitsugu), Ageha’s bratty black cat contractor with whom she perpetually feuds. Oboro fits right in with the rest of these oddballs, and the episode is comfortably familiar for fans of the first season. It won’t get much attention, but it’s still great to have Rinne back.
