At first this gets to a slow start you dont really know whats going on. Then at huge speed you get hit with the plot. There is tons of moments you want romance to occur, but its seems there are block head moments here. Its packed with funny moments and great story lines. It always leaves you with the feeling I CANT WAIT TILL THE NEXT ONE
Kyoukai no Rinne starts off rather slow but when you eventually get to the plot it gets much more fun and interesting. This is a series that so far I recommend sticking with. It is easy watching and rather light-hearted. Though admittedly it is nothing spectacular and it lacks punch per episode, it is not intended to pack a weekly punch in the way that a lot of the more popular anime this season do. Kyoukai no Rinne is gentle running and amusing and the action scenes are mostly comedic. As such the show grows on you as it progresses at it's own pace (after the intital slower introductory episodes). If it continues this way it will hold it's own this during it's run even if it fails to wow a majority. So far it is a nice reprieve from the high thrills anime so often seen high scoring lately. I for one look forward to it every week. (Currently 10 episodes in). Will update this review when the series completes or if my opinion changes before then.
<section class="userContent">Right, it's confession time for me. If you have been reading my reviews than you may have noticed that I tend to rip the anime a new one. There is a reason for this though and it has to do with the fact that I can't turn my brain off when watching anime. I can't ignore the stupid shown in the anime and this is a problem as most anime are very stupid indeed. In this case I'm not talking about a 90 pound girl catching a multi-ton cruise missile and throwing it back. Yes, it is stupid but it is a stupid that I'll allow. It's anime. Things like this are normal here and I'm pretty much fine with it. It annoys me to be sure but I will not rant about it. So, having explained this lets rip into this anime shall we? Just a heads up: There will most probably be spoilers. The more I hate an anime the more spoilers there will be. ART: Art is fine. I've said it before and I'll say it many more times: It is near impossible to screw this up these days. SOUND: Again no complaints from me. I can no longer remember any of the music used but this is how I prefer it. Voice acting were decent even if they get to do the same thing over and over. CHARACTERS: Main character is Sakura. As a child she found herself in the land of the dead and has been able to see them ever since. While she got used to it she isn't very happy with it. Rinne is part Shinigami and part human. He has a massive debt due to his father and works hard for the afterworld to clear it up. Rokumon is a cat spirit that works for Rinne. Tsubasa is an exorcist and the last of a long line. He is an old friend of Sakura and has a crush on her. STORY: As a young child, Sakura, was brought into the spirit world and she has been able to see spirits ever since. While in highschool she meets Rinne, a mysterious boy that is absent for most of the time. When he does show up she is surprised that she is the only one able to see him. Rinne is part shinigami and as such can move among the spirits as will. Unfortunately he is dirt poor and has to work extremely hard to repay the debts. Sakura starts to help him. RANT: What I got the most of this anime is boredom. Nothing of note happens and nobody seems to care either and when the main characters don't care, why should we? This is the main problem with the anime: nobody cares. All the elements are in place and then the tension gets broken with a joke and everyone goes along with it. Nothing of concequence happens either. Things just happens and aren't resolved, especially involving Rinne's father. He is probably the main bad guy but nothing happens with him. I'm aware that this is on purpose and for comedic effect but just suck everything out of the anime. It would have helped if the comedy was good but most jokes are weak and the good ones are repeated so often that even that becomes stale. Then there is the exposition, mostly done the narrator. Problem is that he repeats everything and I mean everthing. Rinne uses a scythe? The narrator explains the use of the scythe. Next episode or 5 minutes later the scythe gets used again? The nerrator explains again what the scythe is and how it is used. </section>
