It's Just Another Manga Monday: Rin-Ne by Rumiko Takahashi

The wacky hijinks continue in the newest installment of Rin-Ne by Rumiko Takahashi. In this volume, a student is cursed to fall asleep whenever studying for exams, the ghost of a little girl haunts an ice skating rink, Tsubasa Jumonji is being haunted by the spirit of a girl who wants to feel truly loved, Rin-Ne gets a call to exorcise a spirit at a local ramen shop, a wig is haunting the high school theatrical production, and Ageha's black cat by contract, Oboro, is trying to break the contract and spring himself free.

Rin-Ne has his hands full trying to assist all the spirits running rampant to pass on peacefully to the Wheel of Incarnation.

My favorite chapters were about the ramen shop. As it turns out, Rin-Ne's father is the owner of the ramen shop and he is being possessed. This particular possession actually has Rin-Ne's dad actually working for the first time in his afterlife. How will he get out of this one? And will Rin-Ne take pity on him and help out his father for the sake of the family relationship?

Volume 10 is due out November 13th
