[[quoteright:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RIN-NE_246px_4664.jpeg]]

The latest manga from the legendary Creator/RumikoTakahashi, begun April 2009 in Shonen Sunday and licensed by Creator/VizMedia, who -- in a first for manga -- started releasing translated versions online at the same time that they came out in Japan. However, licensed online updates ended after the earthquake in Japan.

The star of '''''RIN-NE''''', known in Japan as '''''Kyoukai no Rinne''''' or "Rinne of the Boundary", is Sakura Mamiya, who has been [[ISeeDeadPeople able to see ghosts]] since an incident in her childhood. Now in HighSchool, she views them as more than a nuisance than anything. One day, Rinne Rokudo, a student who has been absent since the beginning of the year appears in class, strangely-dressed and visible only to Sakura -- yet after school, she [[CrashIntoHello finds him to be solid]], unlike any ghost she has seen.

----
!!''RIN-NE'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AbusiveParents: Rinne's father is a perfect example of financial abuse.
* AccidentalPervert: Twice in the same arc. [[spoiler:Chapter 100 continues an arc where Sakura has lost her ability to see ghosts, and just when a whole lot of them are after her for the A-1 Grand Prix. Tamako gives Rinne a gift of a doll that can take on the form of a given person, after achieving a strand of hair. The doll takes Sakura's form in order to redirect the ghosts to it, but Tsubasa thinks it's some kind of sex doll, and calls Rinne a pervert. Continuing from there, in chapter 101, Rinne, wearing his haori, slips into Sakura's room to check on her just as her mom is calling her for the bath. If the shinigami wasn't such a decent guy, he would've seen even more than he already had.]] This means that this is no longer the Rumiko Takahashi odd-one-out, in the respect that [[spoiler:we finally see some cleavage]]. Not counting the Nirvana House oneshot chapter.
* AmplifierArtifact: Jumonji's Power Stone, which changes color depending on how "pure" it is.
* ArtShift: Page 6 of chapter 27 features some (in-story) drawings made by members of the art club. These have a distinctly different drawing style from Takahashi's usual style.
* AttractiveBentGender: When [[WholesomeCrossdresser dressed up as]] a [[{{Meido}} French maid]], Rinne makes for an uncomfortably attractive "woman" (he [[TheStoic doesn't really have much of an opinion about it]]). Even the girls [[{{Squee}} squeal]] at how cute he looks, and he wins a "Mr. Lady" contest.
* BelligerentSexualTension:
** {{Averted}} so far, which is odd for a Takahashi series. Rinne is turning out to be a {{stoic}} with only mild jerkiness (very little of which is directed towards Sakura) and Sakura has yet to show the slightest [[{{Tsundere}} tsuntsun]]! In chapter 21, Rinne actually went speechless for a moment and inwardly admits that Sakura is cute! Later, Rinne is acting like a {{Kuudere}} (stoic and kuu- normally, but all deredere around Sakura), and Sakura is also a {{Kuudere}} for him, but her SelectiveObliviousness makes her InnocentlyInsensitive at times.
** Played straight in the story of the cursed sweet potatoes with Imoto as the Type B {{Tsundere}} and Tomoo Asatsuma as the JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* BerserkButton: Tamako's reaction to being called old is humorous for us, not so humorous for the person who called her it.
* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: Rinne requires people who wish their spiritual problems be solved must make a cash AND food donation at the school's utility shed. It gets turned on him in Chapter 9 when the client sticks him with some extra fees, under the threat of exposing his "scam". Of course, it turns out that Rinne has a reason to ask for such payments -- it's the only thing he has to live on, what with [[spoiler:his asshole father stealing every yen that Rinne gets and spending nothing on him]].
* BoyfriendBluff: In a rare reversal of roles, Tamako announces Rinne is already dating Sakura to stop Sabato's plan to force Rinne into an ArrangedMarriage. Sakura doesn't deny it at the moment because it will get Rinne out of the problem, but Rinne becomes disappointed when she denies it afterwards.
* CallingYourAttacks:
** "Kasha Retsudan!" (burning wheel vehement separation)
** "Meido Shadan!" (underworld retreat interception)
** "Devil Cash Card Cutter!"
** "Stream of a Thousand Winds!"
** "[[ThrowTheBookAtThem Bible Corner Crush!]]"
* TheCameo:
** A boat in chapter 4 looks like Genma Saotome (from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'') in his panda form. Pandas that look like him have also showed up in chapters 24 and 84.
** One of the balloons Tsubasa carries in chapter 21 looks like Shippo's pink floating balloon form from ''Manga/InuYasha''.
** In the same chapter, one of the plushies Rinne wins looks like the panda drawing that escaped its frame Manga/{{Ranma|OneHalf}} had to date to get it to rest at a fair.
* TheCasanova: Sabato Rokudo. Though him being a money-grubbing jerk is kind of a turn-off to some people. Most certainly not the women he treats and spoils (using Rinne's money, no doubt), but to the outsiders looking in, he fits the negative tropes given to him very well.
* CharacterTitle
* CherryBlossomGirl: [[CaptainObvious Sakura]] Mamiya
* ChickMagnet:
** Sabato Rokudo
** To a lesser extent than his father, Rinne.
** Sakura has become a Dude Magnet, too.
* ChubbyChaser: The ghost in chapters 92 and 93 is like this.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Sort of implied when Tsubasa pulls out a Christian bible when fighting an evil spirit, who tells him he has "the wrong religion here" (though he had [[ThrowTheBookAtThem other uses]] for that bible in mind).
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Rinne is apparently a physically normal person, but becomes like a ghost when wearing a special cloak. However, if he turns it inside-out he can put it on a ghost and make them like a living person while they wear it.
* CombatPragmatist: After being informed by Masato that he can't hurt him with sacred ashes, Jumonji throws him ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny a trash can]]''. It works.
* ComicBookTime: It's spring. Now it's autumn. Now it's winter. Now it's summer again. The main characters are all still in tenth grade.
* ComedicSociopathy: Averted, these characters are much nicer than those you'll find in most Rumiko Takahashi harem romantic comedies.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Sabato. Without reading the series, you can't imagine how badly he [[AbusiveParents financially and emotionally abuses his son]]. He quite obviously ''doesn't'' care, seeing as how easily he is willing to bill Rinne for ''one million yen''. {{Jerkass}}.
* CrashIntoHello: Sakura's attempt to determine whether Rinne was a ghost or a living person resulted in this.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Rinne doesn't just have red hair, but red eyes as well.
* CustomUniform: Rinne wears his tracksuit from junior high instead of the school uniform, presumably because he cannot afford one, but likely more from the fact that he feels he should never spend any money on "luxuries" for himself (which is everything) due to his debt.
* {{Deconstruction}}: Some aspects of Creator/RumikoTakahashi's previous works get this treatment.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: Rokumon sometimes uses his kitten form to get people to give him food.
* {{Delinquents}}:
** Rinne ''appears'' to be one.
** Chapter 52 introduces a ghost who was evidently a ''sukeban'' during her lifetime.
* DistinguishingMark: "Hime's" petal-shaped birthmark, which somehow spans reincarnations.
* TheDitz: Kain's mom. Seriously.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything:
** The entrance to Hell looks like the entrance to a JR train station.
** The series as a whole: It stars a red-haired guy and a black-haired girl; one of them can see ghosts and the other is a {{Shinigami}}; the mortal then becomes involved in the world of Shinigami and helps the souls of the departed reach the afterlife before they become monsters... except the guy is the Shinigami, and the girl is the normal human. If this isn't apparent yet, one early translator put it as bluntly as possible:
--->''"This is Creator/RumikoTakahashi-style Anti-''Manga/{{Bleach}}''!"''
* DontTryThisAtHome: Rokumon and Tsubasa [[BreakingTheFourthWall break the fourth wall]] to tell you not to headbutt rocks.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: One of few Creator/RumikoTakahashi works to avert this.
* EquivalentExchange: One weapon turns things into their cash value. [[YouFailEconomicsForever No idea how that works]]. It then puts them in a safe; it's never been stated where the money comes from. (If it came from Rinne's account, Sabato wouldn't have coughed up blood when the guy was paid for the beef.)
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Well, Tsubasa's not ''evil'', but no matter how much he hates Rinne and yearns for Sakura's affection, he'd never go so far as to make a DealWithTheDevil (literally, with Masato) and curse Rinne... Too bad circumstances keep leading him to keep doing so anyway, much to his horror.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: We're not thirty chapters in and Tsubasa already suspects Sakura of being in love with Rinne.
* EvilIsPetty: Masato's reasons for hating Rinne is this.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Rinne's grandmother.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: When a case is solved, the end of the chapter usually reveals that Rinne failed to make a profit.
* FullNameBasis: Rinne to ''everyone''.
* GhostLights: Common around the standard ghosts.
* GirlishPigtails: Sakura has two braided, low-tied pigtails.
* HairColors: Attention is drawn to Rinne's bright red hair.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Rinne is one-quarter shinigami and one-quarter human. The other half is unaccounted for. At some point, Kain does mention "Rinne Rokudo, who is only half shinigami". (Or something along those lines.) Kain could just be using that as a generalization, though.
* {{Henohenomoheji}}:
** The members of the school choir other than Misora Utagawa are depicted this way in a flashback in chapter 11.
** When Tsubasa volunteers to draw what appears to be a faceless ghost girl so he can get close to it, we see this is what he's really drawing.
* HeyThatsMyLine: Sakura says this to to Rinne in chapter 6 when Rinne asks why she's in the club building.
* HiddenDepths: Sakura sure was good with yoyos in fourth grade.
* HimeCut: Kaori Himekawa
* IdiotsCannotCatchColds: Rinne ''wishes'' he could pass his cold to Tsubasa. (Of course, there's also the problem of only spirit beings being able to contract it...)
* InvisibleToNormals: Most Shinigami, ghosts and spirtis, as well as Rinne with his haori on.
* IronButtmonkey: As of the latest chapters, Tsubasa indefinitely qualifies. Chapters 82 and 83 have introduced a ghost girl named Yayoi, who needs the feeling of being loved in order to pass on. However, Yayoi's true intentions are [[spoiler:to have Tsubasa join her in the afterlife so she can be loved. It doesn't help that Tsubasa looks like the boy she had a crush on]]. At the end of the arc, after having gone through the perils Yayoi put him through, he is admitted to the hospital; but only "''for a little while''". It was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] twice when both a student and the doctor say that an ordinary person would have ''died'' from what he went through.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Sakura, of course.
* {{Jerkass}}: Rinne's dad Sabato seems to have studied at the [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Genma Saotome Anything Goes]] School of Parenting, take the lessons UpToEleven, and then invented some more techniques of his own to enhance his massive jerkass status. Let's see... Daddy's been stealing Rinne's money for years, crushed his hope of seeing his mom as a young boy, forced him to take on his debts, and is trying to get him married to take over his failing company... probably to force even more debt on him while he gets to go off skipping. The only PetTheDog moment he had so far is when he object against Kain's hostility towards Rinne...for a problem he caused himself, and there may have been ulterior motives there too.
* KillerYoyo: A giant one with blades, in chapter 47.
* {{Kotatsu}}: Ageha is tricked into buying one thinking it has LovePotion-like effects and will help her get closer to Rinne, but ironically enough, despite it having no such ability, the kotatsu does help all the main characters bond with each other.
%%* LaserGuidedAmnesia
* LetsYouAndHimFight: On their first encounter, Ageha jumps to the conclusion that Rinne is the damashigami that gave out the cursed pencils.
* LimitedWardrobe: Rinne only ever wears the tracksuit from his middle school. If he were to buy a new one, he would [[PerpetualPoverty "plummet into hell."]]
* LoanShark: Toichi (see MeaningfulName below) loans power to ghosts, and when they can't pay it back, [[spoiler:they get assimilated into Toichi]].
* LoveChart: PlayedForLaughs and used to help the reader understand the ''very'' simple, would-be LoveTriangle involving the [[NotQuiteDead still-alive]] [[MonsterOfTheWeek ghost of the week]], his girlfriend, and his best friend in chapter 13, and again in chapter 16.
* LuckyTranslation:
** When Tsubasa tries to refresh Sakura's memory of him, she calls him "Oreda-kun" in response to his "ore da." Fortunately, "Itsumi" ("It's me") works too, even though it's a ''girl's'' name.
** This may not be the case in other languages, however. The Indonesian translation gives his name as Akulo, from "Aku, lo" ("It's me")... which may make sense if he's some kind of corny EvilOverlord.
* MeaningfulName:
** "Rinne" (輪廻) means "transmigration of souls", and "rokudō" (六道) means "six paths", referring to the Buddhist six realms of existence (for the record, the term "rokudōrinne" is indeed uned for this concept).
** "Tamako" (魂子) means "soul child", an appropriate name for a shinigami.
** "Rokumon" (六文) means "six ''mon''s" (''mon'' being an obsolete currency unit), referring to the fare for crossing the ''Sanzu no kawa'' (a Japanese Buddhist equivalent of the River Styx).
** "Kaori Himekawa" is a reincarnated "Hime". [[spoiler:But not really. The name was probably meant to fool readers.]] Himekawa can mean "river princess". Given what she's actually reincarnated from, this name actually is both {{meaningful|Name}}]] and {{hilarious|InHindsight}}.
** "Misora Utagawa": this character's given name and surname both refer to her being a singer. "Misora" (spelled in hiragana, みそら) is part of the solfège for a major pentatonic scale: do, re, '''mi''', '''sol''' (or "so"), '''la''' (or "ra"). (Rinne mistakenly calls her "Doremi Utagawa" once.) It might also be a reference to singer Hibari Misora. The first character in "Utagawa" (歌河) means "song", and the second character means "river" (possibly referring to the way she died).
** "Tadano Tomoya" (只野トモヤ): "Tada no tomo ya" (ただの友や) means "I'm [[JustFriends just a friend]]."
** "Masato" (魔狭人): Masato himself states that his name is written to mean, "an evil, narrow-minded person" (VIZ translation). This translation is pretty accurate. "Ma" (魔) means "demon, evil spirit", "Sa" literally means "narrow, cramped", and "To" means "person".
** "Jumonji" (十文字): Means "cross", which fits in with Tsubasa Jumonji's exorcist "side-job". Tsubasa also means "wings".
** "Toichi" (トイチ): An abbreviation of "tooka de ichiwari", which means "10% interest every 10 days".
** "Imoto": This character is a member of the horticulture club, and "imo" (芋) is a suffix used in the words for several types of root vegetables. [[spoiler:The name is also plot-relevant -- see below]]. [[note]]Note that this name is entirely unrelated to the word "''[[JapaneseSiblingTerminology imouto]]''".[[/note]]
** "Asatsuma Tomō": This horticulture club member's name contains "satsuma", and "satsumaimo" (薩摩芋) means "sweet potato" (which is what the club is currently growing). [[spoiler:Also: "ASATSUMA TOMOO" → erase part of it → " SATSUMA I MO ". Might also qualify as {{edible theme naming}} along with "Imoto"]].
* MegaNeko: Rokumon, but only part of the time.
* {{Meido}}: Sakura and her female classmates wear maid uniforms during the SchoolFestival. Also, Rinne [[WholesomeCrossdresser wears one]] to fool a damashigami.
* MiserAdvisor:
** Rinne is sort of a subversion, being very conscious of his spending and trying to get whatever money he can, but he's never an outright jerk about it.
** His father Sabato plays it straight though, being so money-grubbing as to steal from his son's account, steal from his son's ''piggy bank'' (which had the money Rinne wanted to use to visit his mother), use a weapon that converts whatever it touches into cash, and ''[[BloodFromTheMouth vomit blood]]'' when he gets tricked into actually ''paying'' for something]].
* MissingMom: Rinne's mother has yet to be seen.
* MistakenForMurderer: Rokumon immediately assumes that Sakura, Jumonji and Ageha have killed Rinne after seeing his body on the ground. The true culprit is Kain.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: This is the basic structure so far, starting with the Kaori Himekawa arc. Most cases take two or three chapters to solve, suggesting that they'll come out to an episode each in the inevitable anime. Most of the exceptions so far have been character introduction arcs, like the Reiji Todoriki arc (Masato's debut). Rinne's father will be the main villain in two consecutive arcs. In Kain's arc, he's a minor villain. Sabato is the one behind everything, unsurprisingly.
* MrExposition: Rokumon when he explains the purpose of various devices used by shinigami.
* {{Narrator}}: In the form of speech bubbles that are not connected to any of the characters, and have a different border style and font.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Misora Utagawa does this in chapter 12, including the hand gesture. [[spoiler:Which hides the space where she's missing a front tooth.]]
* NonHumanSidekick: Rokumon, to Rinne. In fact, it seems that every shinigami has a Black Cat by Contract.
* NotSoStoic: Rinne appears cool and unfazed by anything supernatural... though the emptiness of his wallet never fails to bring him to absolute despair.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Every time that Rinne gets in a compromising position with a girl (most often Ageha, although it also happened once with a one-shot character), he'll be quick to distance himself and inform Sakura that it's not what she thinks.
* ObaSan: It's a RunningGag for Tamako (Rinne's grandmother) to punish people for calling her "Oba-chan" / "Oba-san". She's also happy when Sakura comments on how young she looks. Which leads her to her CrowningMomentOfAwesome when she takes out a dozen damashigami girls with a single punch for calling her old.
-->'''Tamako:''' Call me '''ONEE-SAN'''!!!
* OlderThanTheyLook: Sabato looks more like Rinne's older brother than like his father.
* OnlySixFaces: Sakura and Rinne look suspiciously similar to some of Takahashi's earlier characters.
* PaperFanOfDoom: Tamako, in chapter 31.
* ParentalAbandonment: Rinne has lived with his grandfather his whole life. His dad, at least, is alive... and an asshole. His mother was claimed by his father to be dead, but that may or may not have been a lie. With Sabato, you never know.
* PerpetualPoverty: Rinne is living in an abandoned club building so he doesn't have to pay rent, can't afford to feed a black cat spirit, makes artificial flowers for money, and asks for food offerings and cash at the weather hutch. This is partially because as a part-human, he needs to pay for the tools to use abilities a full-blooded Shinigami naturally possesses. Said poverty is not the result of his grandmother's debt, but his ''father's''.
* PointyEars: Masato
* {{Pun}}:
** The ''ateji'' in chapter 5. The same pun shows up [[http://blog.shonensunday.com/sunday/2010/06/yoroshiku.html in chapter 52]].
** Chapter 8 [[http://www.therumicworld.com/blog.php?id=21 features]] a bottled drink called "MEGA サメ・ル". This is pronounced the same as "目が覚める" ("me ga sameru"), which [[http://japanese.about.com/blpod060100.htm means]] "wake up" (literally, "eyes awaken"), but the "目が" ("me ga") part is written as the English word "mega".
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Tamako, being a shinigami, looks like she's in her 20s despite being Rinne's grandmother and may well have lived for much longer before she got married.
%%* {{Reincarnation}}
* ReincarnationRomance: A ghost of a soldier tries to go after a girl he assumes is the reincarnation of a woman he loved. [[spoiler:Subverted when it turns out that the woman [[{{Gonk}} looks nothing like]] Himekawa, as he just built up his image of her until he just decided she must be his princess's reincarnation simply because she's beautiful. As it turns out, though, the person who really is the princess's reincarnation doesn't closely resemble the princess either; it's Suzuki, the (male) PE teacher.]]
* TheRival:
** In love as well as in business; Tsubasa Jumonji is a Van Helsing-style exorcist with a highly obvious crush on Sakura.
** Also, Ageha is a romantic rival of Sakura... Well, ''Ageha'' thinks of them as rivals (even going so far as to [[spoiler:compare chest sizes]], in chapter 61). Sakura doesn't seem to notice.
** Ageha and Renge both consider each other this, if for different reasons.
* SchoolFestival: In chapter 25 and 26.
* SexySecretary: Sabato's secretary is actually introduced as "mysterious hot secretary".
* ShapeShifter: Rokumon has three different forms: tiny kitten with green eyes, anthropomorphic cat, and giant bakeneko.
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend:
** Narrowly dodged. Rinne and Sakura are regularly mistaken for a couple, but they don't bother to correct anyone. Sakura mostly just shrugs it off. (In Tsubasa's case, Rinne seems to know that he wouldn't ''believe'' it anyway.)
** Rinne keeps insisting to Sakura that he isn't even friends with Ageha... ''yet''. At this point in the story, Rinne only likes her enough to put up with her. Takahashi has even stated, ''in-chapter'', that to the people who can see her, she's "terribly annoying".
* {{Shinigami}}:
** Rinne's grandmother. He also refers to himself as such, "sort of", because he's part human.
** There are also "damashigami"; shinigami that went rogue and decided to fill their quota's by kidnapping still living people.
* ShipperOnDeck:
** Rokumon is apparently a fan of Rinne×Sakura, as he shouts at Rinne when Sakura is alone with another guy.
** Add Tamako to the list.
** In a more malicious way, Sabato as well.
* ShoutOut:
** To ''Manga/SazaeSan'', in chapter 7 and to the love triangle in ''Manga/InuYasha'' in chapter 8, when a ReincarnationRomance with a ghost is introduced. ("These relationships are the worst kind!")
** Also in chapter 27, when given a look inside the anime club's room, there is a poster that features a LawyerFriendlyCameo of Franchise/SailorMoon and Luna. Also, one of the figurines looks like Shampoo, and another like [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku]].
** This one might or might not be meant as a reference: In chapter 51, when Tsubasa summons the spirits of the power stone, he says "[[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Light, come forth!]]"
* SmashingWatermelons: Done by ghosts in chapter 61.
* SmokeOut: Masato does this to escape a beating from Rinne.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It's "Rin-ne" in the English version so we have a chance of pronouncing it correctly. Keep in mind, though, that "''RIN-NE''" is the series! When referring to the character in the actual translation, it's still written "Rinne".
%%* SpiritWorld
* StringyHairedGhostGirl: The evil spirit that attacks Shōma with a knife seems to be one of these.
* StrongFamilyResemblance:
** The StudentCouncilPresident apparently looks ''exactly'' like her mother (and thus her mother's twin sister) did when she was her age.
** Except for Sabato having a longer nose, he and Rinne are pretty much mirror images of each other, height notwithstanding.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Rinne and Sakura.
* TearsOfBlood: [[RunningGag Whenever Rinne has to spend a lot of money and fall even further into debt, he cries Tears of Blood]].
* ThemeTwinNaming: Ranko & Rinko.
* ThoseTwoGirls: Sakura's friends Miho and Rika.
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: "Bible Corner Crush!" -- for [[RuleOfFunny some reason]] he claims he can only do this once a week.
* TinCanYouHearMeNow: And it's coin-operated. Well, how ''else'' would you talk to a ghost haunting a cell phone?
* TroubledButCute: Rinne is constantly in debt, his father is impossibly greedy, any profits he makes are immediately taken, and he is now dealing with new emotions he didn't know he had. His dad alone is enough to give him trouble; he's basically the cause of everything else mentioned above.
* TwiceShy: The two presidents of the art club.
* UnfazedEveryman: Sakura is exceedingly nonchalant about everything, even the paranormal weirdness that goes about in the series.
* UnfinishedBusiness: And if they don't come to terms with their regrets, they can become evil spirits. It's not all bad, though; Sakura's saves her life.
* UpperClassTwit:
** Kain's mom, again;
** Ageha
* WeaksauceWeakness: Rinne + [[spoiler:Moving vehicles]] = TERRIBLE idea.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: Averted in the case of Tsubasa Jumonji; his response to anything supernatural is almost always to throw sacred ashes, and it's seldom effective.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Rinne in chapter 26.
* WingdingEyes: Suzuki has star-eyes.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Ageha
* ZigzagPaperTassel:
** An exorcist in chapter 12 has an ''ōnusa''.
** The Tosa dog in chapter 43 wears a ''shimenawa''.
** In chapter 86, a ''shimenawa'' is used to tie shut the theater doors during the rehearsal.
