Overall it was a decent and funny first episode.

Average as a comedy. There are better comedies this season, based on premiere episodes.

And the style feels outdated.

But I can't say it was unenjoyable, had its moments.

I heard the OP and I was sold. My soul is too cheap. Damn you, Brains Base, I love you guys' anime too much.

The heroine reminds me of Kawai Ritsu.

Thank God the male protagonist is interesting. Same goes for heroine. I am getting some severe Noragami deja vu right now.

This has some story-telling problems, the author probably couldn't decide whether to make it a realistic fantasy, or a comedic fantasy. It has potential cuz it has a certain irresistable charm which makes me want to keep watching it. The manga has low rating tho (In 7.3s) so I am hesitating, sort of.

Nice ED song. 7/10 for this episode, I sure hope it turns out good.

I'm so excited to see this! I have a soft spot for these types of animes because of InuYasha c;

Promising, but imo not perfect. Some things were really weird. Like he was no at all surprised that she can see him. Like zero reaction. And then he says she shouldn't get involved, next thing he grabs her and takes her along. Again no explanation or something. It felt like I missed something...?


Plus that teachers eyes are really, really creepy.

Just as boring as the manga was. *sigh* Was hoping that they'd have done a little more with it once it got animated, but nope.

I loved the opening and I don't mind the art.

I hate the subs though. They were pretty bad lol.

This was HILARIOUS xDDDDD This is like Noragami and Inuyasha molded into one and I loved it

Our two main characters are very likable and the male MC is SO FREAKING FUNNY LOL. Him being a shining ami is pretty cool and I'm looking forward to seeing more of him doing his job as well as some world building

Can't wait to see the next episodes :) The OP and ED were nice too and the art/animation isn't half bad at all

I laughed way too much during this episode lol, literally every comedic moment in this series had me dying, especially everything that the MC did and said xD

I'm gonna watch this again once CR brings out their subs for this because the subs that see currently available are pretty bad and we missed out on some of the info for the item expkabationsn

I don't really know what I just watched, but the humor was pretty great.

I don't know, the interaction between Sakura and Rinne was a bit weird for a first encounter, but that may just be her personality.

I always like the concept of poor gods/shinigami, like Yato from Noragami. There is something really funny behind the fact that these powerful creature not being able to profit form wealth. And that must suck to always pay to use powers x)
I hope he have a Visa...

It's ridiculous how easily recognizable some art styles are. Before the opening started I was like "This kinda feels like a mix between Ranma 1/2 and Inu Yasha". Just had to look up if the mangaka was inspired by those(considering how much time lies between those) or if it was just coincidence and then it hit me like a truck when I looked up the mangaka.

Makes me want to watch this even more :) It's just too bad that for some reason the subs from streams suck really bad(maybe it's different for torrents). The grammar was wrong considerably often, typos every where and some parts were not even subbed >.< Hope this changes for the next episode. Otherwise I might have to wait until it is over and some good subs are made if a good group finds the time for it.

Pretty tepid stuff. All it did was make me wish the Noragami sequel was here already. Characters feel a lot more inexpressive then what we got from it's pre-cursor Inu Yasha and are thus rather boring.

Eh, it's okay. It reminds me of InuYasha, which I did like when I first started anime but now I've grown a distaste for it. It seems unique enough on it's own though, hopefully it doesn't suck like InuYasha's anime did, I really want to check out the manga sometime.

*sigh* how nostalgic, can't stop reminding me of InuYasha. I'm really glad Rokudo has a different personality tho, he's such a cutie. Sakura's personality is refreshing too!

Wow, that was crammed... I like the humor, had a small laughing fit when the chihuahua ate Rokudo.
I love the OST in the beginning, that was beautiful. The OP is really nice as well.

But I really hope the rest of the episodes aren't as simplistic and rushed as this one was. It's a decent concept, but the light-hearted way it's treated really undermines it.

Makes me appreciate Inuyasha more though. The designs really could be more modern-looking. It's out of place with the animation. And the pacing is really atrocious: there was no breathing room at all in the sequence of events.

I thoroughly enjoyed this first episode. Rokudou is so poor, that it's just pure comedy gold. I think 25 episodes is quite fair, but if every episode is going to be this funny, then I want them to take the Inuyasha route and animate everything; rivaling long-running shows like Bleach.

this was totally not what i expected with this series, kind of expected a normal supernatural series and wound up with a really solid comedy. Pleasant surprise

Having no expectations, this was definitely surprisingly enjoyable! The sequence of events did seem rushed as Mirorin pointed out, I mean we got two (three really) cases solved all within the second half of the episode, and already so many gadget stuffs. I still had a lot of fun with it though, and I especially like Sakura's chill personality. Rinne too, both of them are pretty cool MCs.

This was really fun. The cast is lovable and the comedy is done at the right parts.

Rinne and Sakura are quite lovable duo and reminds you Kagome-Inuyasha duo but thank god Rinne is not much of an idiot here.

Loved it how they shell out those objects one after another to exorcise spirits, just like your classic supernatural series.

Rinne's bad luck with money is so funny and the way he asks for coins makes me laugh. Of course, not to forget the scene where he could not let go of the track suit.

Both the MCs are so good, so I'm looking forward to more of this. I want more of this now.

A series written by Rumiko Takahashi.

It was a good start. Sakura need to spend money on the spiritual equipments for Rinne, so Rinne can help.

This episode was very good. I dind't expect Rumiko Takashi to make good stories anymore. I am glad that I was wrong and I am also glad that Rinne is not voiced by Yamaguchi Kappei.

Oh god, I didn't realize how much I needed another Rumiko Takahashi animated feature in my life until seeing this. That opening alone brings back so many memories. I'm loving how they're sticking to the original style too.

I'll be looking forward to this one.

Nice episode. Although a bit rushed, this series is really simple so far (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). The characters are really interesting, I like Sakura's bluntness. Great choice for the VA cast!
I have a feeling this series might be the dark horse of this season :D

Eh, it was ok. The shit tier subs didn't help things but the show was just plain dumb regardless. It seemed like it'd be something that'd be the funniest shit ever if you were between 8 and 12 and saw it dubbed on Cartoon Network, but so do all the rest of this mangaka's shows.

This one reminds me Noragami. Rokudou is poor as Yato, he accepts request for money and the second character is a girl too. But I think this anime can't be better than Noragami.
Anyway, it seems an interesting show and I love the opening (^v^).

This is how I felt too. ALL respect for Rumiko Takahashi and I loved Ranma dearly when I first watched it. Rinne feels very nostalgic, like it's Ranma for the new younger generation and not really for me.

One of the most boring 1st eps i've ever watched, dull interaction and boring story. Guess i'll give this anime another chance before dropping.

Kinda cute and somewhat entertaining but nothing really special.

I was amused by the VA of narrator. I think he was the same guy in Sabagebu iirc.

I'll give this show a few more episodes
