Great OP, got me hooked when I wasn't expecting much while randomly watching this while eating. Surprised that the creator of Inuyasha was still around, the character designs definitely gave me feels.

Is the manga still ongoing?

Reminds me of Bleach and yu yu hakusho XD
Spirits, Shinigami and reincarnation ;)

Good episode XD the manaka's still got it :)
I want it to be a success, there needs to be more of these types of series.
People are too hung up on super amazing art style and edgy deep plot.

Yes, 23 volumes have been released in Japan and 18 volumes in America.

Great start, I forgot how much I like Sakura and Rokudo. I need to get caught up on the managa. Only bought the cfirst seven volumes, have to buy the next ten that are out.

They captured that kind of off feeling from the manga perfectly. And the comedy was right on point. Especially the narrator!

Rokudo's voice through me off at first, I always thought of it more like Ranma's, but was used to it and started to like it by the end of the episode. Sakura's voice is perfect.

Music was great as well.

All in all it seems like this will be a great adaptation and nod to Takahashi-sensei's great work.

I just hope it does well and breaks Brain Bases record of only doing one season of a show. I would love this to turn into a long running show and adapt the entire manga eventually.

I was looking forward to this anime the most this season since I read a good portion of the manga. But it seems to be fairly average... or perhaps maybe my expectations were just a bit too high.

Eh. Brain's Base is practically dead anyway.

This was very bland. And what's with the teacher's eyes? They're terrifying.

Cool! From the makers of InuYasha & Ranma 1/2.
Definitely a keeper.
Always funny when the narrator includes the price of the gadgets.
What the fuck is wrong with that sensei's eyes!

Good starting episode, pretty funny. I started the manga when it first came out in 2009 and have followed it sporadically. Hopefully more people will come to like the show/manga..

I know people have complained about it being episodic but personally I enjoy episodic shows. And it has a similar formula to Ranma 1/2, another Takahashi work.

Love Rumiko Takahashi, also glad to hear Inoue in a main role, her voice is music to my ears.

Loved this first episode. Gladly looking forward to the next 24 episodes of this series.

Looks so old school, it brings a refreshing feeling to itself. Kinda reminds me of inuyasha in this time of better quality anime.

Better start than Re-Kan for sure. Plus it's Rumiko sensei's work so it's bound to be really good!

InuYasha/Norgami just not as entertaining at least for now, 2 cour so gonna be a long ride might as well stick with it to see if it gets better.

But those teachers eyes?! so random just like a lot of stuff in this episode lol

True! I was looking through Crunchyroll and was glad to see they picked up the series. I love Rumiko Takahashi's stories and art. It's really awesome to see the retro anime style with such vivid colors and fluid animation. I hope we get enough story for this season but I'm just pleased to watch the action. :)

It's funny how they constantly make fun of Rinne who obviously doesn't have money xD
But overall it really is a decent anime at best because I don't see how the story will be unique or interesting.
I mean it is entertaining and I like these nostalgic vibes that I get from it but I don't believe that it will be memorable or something.

"Spirits? Make them rest in peace? Oh, no big issue, dude." What kind of reaction was that of those people? Like they're dealing with spirits all the time, they were so ready to believe all the supernatural situation. Kinda parody-ish, if not, it looked like they tried to buy some time for other actions by cutting short the "should-be-surprised" parts. Anyway. But I liked those purchasable items, and our poor Rinne-kun and his seiyuu of course :3 Does not look that promising, but not that bad either. I'll keep watching it, comedy is good :)

Good first episode, didn't expect to like it as much. The two main characters also seem cool.
Hope it keeps up the good work.

Great episode and good comedy, I was really surprised. Inoue Marina and Ishikawa Kaito were great choices of seiyuu pair.

Rumiko Takahashi work does it again, this series has this old-school feel yet it feels kinda fresh, I think I'm already liking it.

Hundred-times better than ghostly and horrible Re-Kan of this season.

But, the episode was really good. I liked it.

I really liked this first episode.
The animation, especially the color palette were really good, though the character design wasn't all that great. The fault lies with the creator of the manga, Rumiko Takahashi, her drawing skills aren't that impressive, her strong points are more in the comedy and likeability of the characters. all her characters have strong and fun personalities.
I liked both Rokudou and Sakura, I'm so glad Takashi didn't recycle the personalities of the main characters from her previous work, but rather the main characters from Rinne have their own unique personality. Rokudou doesn't fall into the "baka" main male character category that Ranma and Inuyasha fall, he is rather calculated and cool-headed, but has the determination of Takashi's previous main characters (especially Inuyasha). Sakura is a likeable female protagonist, she's not bland and uninteresting, she knows how to hold her own but at same time she wants to be helpful, without being a nuisance, there is a nice balance in her personality.
Also, the voice acting was top-notch, especially Rokudou's voice actor.Ishikawa Kaito he has a nice, sothing voice, that gives off a relaxed air about him, but at the same time shows the determination of the character.
The voice actors really bring the characters to life. The comedy was also good, though not amazing, it was fun enough, it had that unmistakable Takahashi vibe.
I enjoyed watching this first episode much more than reading the first chapter of the manga.

It's finally here! been waiting for this to get animated and with such a classic style too....Dang I feel a bit nostalgic and the first episode doesn't look too bad either. Loved the opening and ending too. My favourite part though was when the heroic music played, I was rolling XD

I like Rokudou more than I thought I would, he's kinda adorkable the way he's so serious and at the same time so desperate for money and clothes lol

Pretty average. Seems like its elements had already been done before, and it may have nothing new to offer... except for the gags? But those were not awfully funny either. Dropped.

It wasn't terrible, but I don't have much interest in it either. The chemistry between the two main characters was "okay" and that's all this anime has going for it.

As the first episode is not bad, but I expected a lot more; perhaps driven by the memory of Inuyasha. However this narration from light stroke and a little light-hearted, not bad. I look forward to further developments, but even if it is not done nothing sensational; follow this anime because in the end I like the style of Maestra Takahashi.

Hahaha I also thought of Re-Kan with that non-startling theme around ghosts.

But I think it's not boring, quite entertaning actually. :)

That was... weird; good, but weird. It felt like it was trying to do too many things at once. At different points in the episode, it felt like watching either Mushishi, Bleach, or a stereotypical slice-of-life school comedy.

I am not seeing the InuYasha comparison even slightly. I think people are only comparing the two shows because they have the same creator.

That was...interesting I guess. Pretty old school. Atsushi Abe and Ishikawa Kaito. Nice! Lots of Noragami vibes except it's way cheesier.

Also yeah, music is definitely the highlight.

The artwork literally made me squeal because it's so similar to InuYasha's artwork, which is my favorite anime and it's also by Rumiko Takahashi. <3

Rokudou has InuYasha's face. I think I might cry. T^T <3

The first episode was really funny.
Ghost guy: "It seems kind of lonely"
Rokudou: "There are girls there"
Ghost guy: "Really? BYE!"

I could only find this series on 3 sites and each one of them had horrible subs with misspelled words and bad grammar. And with some parts there were no subs at all so I had absolutely no idea what they were saying!! *sigh*

Also, Sakura's personality reminds me of the main character from Humanity Has Declined

Insanely great and highly entertaining first episode. My god, that was a treat to watch after fighting thru the 3-4 shit animes I watched before this.

I am really hoping this anime continues to be good in the episodes to come. Gonna marathon them all now. Heres to hoping :)
