Rinne's up....


A rather up and down episode...LOL...

Some neat trivia lifted from the Shonen Sunday blog:

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that his name, Rokumon (六文), has associations with the afterlife. In Japanese, rokumonsen (六文銭) are the six coins that the deceased must pay to cross the Sanzu River on their way to the afterlife, similar to what happens at the river Styx in Greek mythology. At Japanese funerals, the deceased used to have six coins placed in a bag with them, but these days the coins have been replaced by pieces of paper with coins printed on them. As for the coins themselves, they’re round and have a square cut out in the middle.

Those must be the imported Chinese coins we were talking about last week!

This episode was personal to Sakura. The spirit had an attachment to her yoyo which he had taken. It was funny that RT made fun of her own drawing of the evil spirit. It was after all just a doodle.The cat was amusing. I am sure he is so named because he seems to be in charge of Rinne's finances for better or worse.
