They describe the anime
Rinne Rokudo, Rokumon, and Sakura Mamiya are back for more misadventures in a story that pairs school life with the afterlife.
Saving lost souls on the tightest budget known to man is only a day’s work for half-human, half-Shinigami kind-of-thing Rinne! Together with the almost too-collected Sakura and his black cat Rokumon, life continues as normal as Rinne helps guide the dead to their final rest. However, new transfers are never a good sign, and a popular fortune teller ends up at Rinne and Sakura’s school as their new teacher. Things get chaotic when a strange girl wielding a scythe makes an appearance, and Rinne realizes that he might discover a major piece surrounding the mystery of his past.
