Get ready for another season of monotone heroines and quirky romantic misunderstandings!
Earlier today, NHK’s Anime World Blog revealed that Rin-Ne will receive a second season. The title will kick off in 2016, with a planned 25 episodes.
The show’s staff released a new key visual, which includes several new characters, to promote the season:
NHK describes the new season as follows (translation courtesy of Anime News Network):
The shinigami (god of death) Rinne Rokudō, and Sakura Mamiya, the girl who can see ghosts, attend the same school. The two spend their days solving the worries of spirits. Rinne is so poor that he is forced to borrow money from Sakura to buy shinigami tools to solve their cases. Rinne and Sakura care for each other, but their relationship is not progressing. However, with the appearance of a new contracted black cat, a beautiful damashigami (cheating god), and a person with whom Rinne shares a special circumstance, the situation becomes even more chaotic! Rinne and Sakura’s after-school time wrapped up in the world of spirits continues!
Rin-Ne is based on Rumiko Takahashi’s manga of the same name. The series premiered on Japanese TV on April 4, and currently spans 25 episodes. Seiki Sugawara is directing the title at Brain’s Base, while Kazuhiko Tamura provides character designs.
In North America, Sentai Filmworks currently holds the domestic rights to the Rin-Ne anime series, while Viz maintains the manga license.
Sentai describes the title as follows:
Kyokai no Rinne is a genre bending supernatural comedy depicting the story of Sakura Mamiya, who is suddenly able to see ghosts after a mysterious disappearance into the woods in her childhood. One day, the normally empty desk next to her at school is filled by a new classmate named Rinne Rokudo, changing her life forever.
