You’d be surprised at how manga works — while it may be new to a lot of U.S. readers, it’s actually old news to Japan, who see the original printings long before we do. (Kind of like astrology and stars, no?)
Well, Viz Media is making a quantum shift with Rin-Ne, the first manga to come out in the U.S. through www.TheRumicWorld.com, at the same time as Japan, through Weekly Shonen Sunday. The book is due out October 20th.
The book, by Rumiko Takahashi, follows student Sakura, who has long had the ability to see ghosts. Her sixth sense takes her on an adventure, however, when a long-absent classmate is much more than they seem.
