What you do if you're blood related to a demon? - Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan

This is my current watched anime. Just aired in Animax last February and i became attach to this series. I think it quite interesting and can be an enjoyable anime. Then i also starting to read the manga cause like always the manga should be more interesting than the anime. This anime also called "Nurarihyon No Mago" or meaning Grandchild of Nurarihyon.

Oh! and the boy Rikuo Nurarihyon when at night he turn to demon he really look cool and gorgeous. Like he become a matured man than a junior high school boy in the daylight. i do enjoyed watched this series. For me this series is different than Bleach or Fairy tail, it's in his own league and can attract the viewer or reader to stick on it.

Let me share some of the preview about this series........

Rikuo Nura is part human and a quarter yōkai (demon). Rikuo is able to turn into his yokai form only after the sunsets when the moon is out, he turns back into his human self when the sun rises. This happens because he is only a quarter yokai. He lives in a house full of spirits along with his yōkai grandfather. Trying to escape his fate of acting like a yōkai, he does good deeds in order to avoid becoming one, despite his grandfather's wish to succeed him as master of the Nura yōkai clan. Rikuo is a different yokai because he helps humans. He eventually comes to terms with his demon blood and decides to take up the position of Young head of the Nura house. Multiple factions aim to stop him or overtake his position, and he must gather friends and allies, a new Hyakki Yakō under his banner of "Fear".

Main Character

Rikuo Nurarihyon
Rikuo is not an average 13-year old boy, his mother is Nura Wakana and he inherited 1/4 of his grandfather's youkai blood. In times of impending danger his youkai blood awakens and he switches into his night form to become the the Master of the Youkai(The master of all spirits). Destined to take over as The Third Master of Youkai from his grandfather. Rikuo once embraced the idea and played pranks on the other Youkai, but after realizing the evil nature of the youkai deeds he rejects the idea of becoming their master. He attempts to become more like a normal human by doing all sorts of good deeds, but he still appreciates his youkai underlings. After being tested by Gyuuki he decides to take the position of Young Head and saves both humans and Youkai.

He is seemingly weak but very clever, easily manipulating one of the council members into isolating himself during a meeting and rationalizing against the dissolvement of the Gyuuki Group. He can only transform at night or in darkness and reverts to normal in sunlight. Originally he couldn't remember things he did as his "Night" form, but he later is able to see and communicate with him. Together they plan to form a "Hyakki Yakō" of their own.

Rikuo's trusted attendant who follows him to school disguised as a normal school girl, known as Tsurara Oikawa. She is affectionate towards Rikuo, since she was angry when Genjourou was embracing Rikuo as she was assigned to be one of the extra escorts, and when she saw Kana together with Rikuo (the day after her birthday). She also admires Rikuo's youkai form, because she finds him very reliable and magnificent. She is overprotective of Rikuo when in his human form and expresses great concern for his well being, which is the reason why she is always around him at school. She also acts as a cook. While her food is delicious, most of the time it is chilled or cold. She is really an ice yokai.

Childhood friend and neighbor of Rikuo. She is hinted to have some affection for him, since she got jealous when she saw Yuki Onna/Tsurara alone together. Rikuo made a promise to help her if she is ever in need. In recent chapters, She has been putting together some of the weird traits and occurrences around Rikuo. She once again meet Rikou in his youkai form in the last chapter after she discovered his glasses on the ground. In the latest chapter, she is being kidnapped by a demon on her 13th birthday. And once again Kana was saved by Rikuo in his youkai form, after she was saved she was taken to a resteruant owned by youkai. In the next morning Kana asked Rikuo if he was friends with his youkai form and blushed when Rikuo asked why. Which implies that Kana has fallen for Rikou's youkai form.

A young Onmyouji who came to Ukiyoe Town seeking the Master of the Youkai (Rikuo). She enrolled in the same school as Rikuo, as a transfer student from Kyoto. She has incredible talent for an Onmyouji despite her young age, since she is able to summon multiple shikigami. She has met Rikuo's grandfather, but has not realized that he is the Nurarihyon. In chapter 54, Yura was training and her brother suddenly showed up. They felt that Rikuo is a youkai and told it to her. She was not convinced but her brothers attecked her too. Rikuo had no choice but to protect Yura and be a youkai. After that, she knew about his secret then she went to Kyoto because of summonings.

That all of the review. Now it's a showtime .....
