    If I had one complaint, it would be that a lot of "Rin-ne" feels a little familiar. There are certainly aspects of Takahashi's earlier works here; the spirits evoke thoughts of "InuYasha," and Sakura and Rinne's love/hate relationship definitely brings "Ranma 1/2" to mind. Still, if you've never read a Takahashi comic before, this is a good introduction. (That said, if you like it? Make sure to check out her older series "Maison Ikkoku," which is the perfect romantic comedy but in comic book form.) And of course, with new chapters online for free, it's easy to catch up. Viz's online comic reader is the best I've seen a company roll out, so give it a try. Read Full Review
