Rin-Ne is based on Rumiko Takahashi’s manga of the same name. The series premiered on Japanese TV on April 4, 2015 and currently spans 25 episodes. Seiki Sugawara (D-Frag!) is directing the title at Brain’s Base, while Kazuhiko Tamura (Gunparade Orchestra) provides character designs.
Rin-Ne will return to Japanese TV on April 9, 2016 at 5:30PM local time. Episodes will air on NHK’s E-Tele network.
In North America, Sentai Filmworks currently holds the domestic rights to the show, while Viz maintains the manga license. Sentai describes Rin-Ne 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.
Crunchyroll streamed the show as it aired in Japan.
