More on VIZ's Rinne Simul-Publishing

I can't wait!

So, tomorrow's my birthday (wtf? I'm old?), and you know what that means-- Rumiko Takahashi's new manga Rinne is going online! VIZ will be releasing the first chapter on the new TheRumicWorld.com site, and if I knew for sure it was going to go online right at midnight, I'd be staying up and waiting for it. That's just too cool.

We may not know that particular piece of information, but over at the Comics Reporter, David Welsh has some additional information. For example, those who didn't believe that it could be done for free are proven wrong:
“The chapters will be available for a limited time for free at TheRumicWorld.com. We're still working out the schedule details.”

Elizabeth Kawasaki, VIZ's Senior Editorial Director, also offers information on how the deal came into place, the quick turnaround that VIZ will have to perform to get the chapters up in a timely fashion, and plays coy on whether Takahashi's other works will be released in the VIZ Big format in the future.

The image, by the way, is from Sporadic Sequential, who also jokes that the characters bear a bit of similarity to the leads of Bleach.

So who's excited for this? Are you planning to read?

Well I haven't liked much of her work but I plan to check it out anyway. I'll probably read at least roughly a volume's worth of chapters before I continue or quit.

Happy early birthday! =)

Gah, finally figured out the kanji.  It's Kyoukai no Rinne.  

I is happy now.

Hm, I just read the first chapter of this and sad to say, I don't think I'll be continuing. I'm with RedRoses on this one, her work hasn't really appealed to me much.
