Product Description

About the Author

The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi's career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan's annual New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, Urusei Yatsura, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another--Maison Ikkoku ran from 1980 to 1987, Ranma 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and Inuyasha from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include Mermaid Saga, Rumic Theater, and One-Pound Gospel. Takahashi won the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award twice in her career, once for Urusei Yatsura in 1981 and the second time for Inuyasha in 2002. A majority of the Takahashi canon has been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film. Takahashi's manga, as well as the other formats her work has been adapted into, have continued to delight generations of fans around the world. Distinguished by her wonderfully endearing characters, Takahashi's work adeptly incorporates a wide variety of elements such as comedy, romance, fantasy, and martial arts. While her series are difficult to pin down into one simple genre, the signature style she has created has come to be known as the Rumic World. Rumiko Takahashi is an artist who truly represents the very best from the world of manga.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 25 2011
Format: Paperback
We already know that Rin-Ne lived with his loving grandparents until just recently... but where the heck are his parents?

Well, we get some answers in "Rin-Ne Volume 4," which is mostly taken up by the revelation of who Rin-Ne's father is, and just what a devious pain-in-the-derriere he is. Rumiko Takahashi packs in plenty of hilarious comedy, money gags and a few new characters who seem to be making trouble for Rin-Ne.

When he goes to the bank, Rokuman makes a horrifying discovery: Rinne is not only broke but overdrawn! And the culprit turns out to be his father, the president of the Damashigami Company, who wants Rinne to take over from him even as he sucks away every yen his son has earned. And when he steals Rinne's tatami mats, the enraged shinigami follows him into the afterlife to get them back.

Unfortunately, the entire scenario is a massive trap to drag Rinne into the Company... and marry him to one of his dad's damashigami girls! Even worse, Sakura has been dragged into the middle of it.

Then a bunch of cursed test pens cause Rinne to encounter another shinigami, a young girl named Ageha who has a passionate hatred for damashigami. She's looking for her sister, who went off to attack the damashigami... and Rinne finds out that his dad is involved yet again!

This entire manga volume revolves around the introduction of Rinne's father Sabato -- and since fathers in Rumiko Takashi works are idiots, slimy deadbeats or dead, you can bet that he's a piece of work, since we see flashbacks to him robbing his little son's piggybank. Think Genma Saotome from Ranma 1/2, but a lot hotter and with a full head of hair.

And another Takahashi staple is added to the stew: more romantic rivals and misunderstandings!

Lovin' every new volume Dec 29 2010
By Animaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What can I say, I loved the InuYasha series, and Rin-Ne is no different. Rumiko Takahashi is a genius when it comes to her stories and artwork, especially adding depth and humor to all her characters. Rinne is the sweetest guy I've ever seen and the relationship building between him and Sakura just makes you wanna squeal. It isn't as fast paced as InuYasha, but then again it's a fun change to see a lighter side of Rumiko's work. This volume is probably one of my favorites so far. Check it out!

Think Genma Saotome from Ranma 1/2, but a lot hotter and with a full head of hair.

And another Takahashi staple is added to the stew: more romantic rivals and misunderstandings! While Tsubasa has added a little awkwardness to the story, it doesn't take long for Sakura to misunderstand Rinne's alliance with Ageha. Pair that with Tsubasa's love charm, and you have plenty of romantic problems in store.

Along the way, Takahashi packs in plenty of hilarious running gags -- shinigami money attacks, expensive beef, a contagious kitty cold and a mysterious seal that keeps helping Sakura. Despite the high stakes, she keeps the tone light and humorous, and adds in some fun twists and gags to the idea of the afterlife.

"Rinne Volume 4" is all about a devastatingly dreadful dad, and some revelations about Rinne's increasingly troubled family. And we haven't even found out about his MOM yet.
