At first glance, Nura Rikuo seems like nothing more than a normal middle-schooler. In actual fact, he is grandson of Nurarihyon, master of a youkai clan. Having only recently resolved the hostilities between the Nura Clan and the Shikoku Yokai, Rikuo finds no rest as an ancient enemy of the Nura Clan, Haguromo-Gitsune, resurfaces. After 400 years of inactivity, Haguromo-Gitsune suddenly sweeps through Kyoto with overwhelming power.

After finishing the first series of Nurarihyon no Mago, I was a bit reluctant to watch the second series "Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyou" because the first series seemed to lack a lot of intensity, creativity and overall story. From the beginning I had thought NnM had a lot of potential, but it really disappointed me in the end.

But even so, I decided to watch this new series, the sequel to the first show. And dear god it has surpassed the first series by a thousand miles! I couldn't be happier with it! This new show is definitely more exciting, productive and interesting than read more

Here you can see the true meaning of underrated anime.

Starting here, i need to say that first season wasn't really good. But differently from most people i've enjoyed it pretty much specially because of Rikuo's growth. When i watched it i could see a completely different person from the beggining, with more courage to fight and other things.

However in season 2 i felt like the season one was completely shit. Here you have more fights, more strong villains, more ACTION! If the first season could be boring sometimes for being "slow" the second one is completely different! Training, fights, Rikuo's father story, Nurarihyon story... This read more

"Can a girl enjoy a shounen-horror-demon-themed-anime?" I ask "Why not?"Sennen Makyou is the kind of second season that makes an anime outstanding. It drove away all the uneasy feelings the first season left, and strongly consolidated into one of my favorites. If I have to say more, I really want to read the manga after this.

//WARNING: This review will compare a lot first and second season of Nurarihyon. Lazy readers better go to conclusion. Sorry if I´m way too biased for the awesomeness of this anime//

I have to admit. Nurarihyon no Mago was pretty disappointing for me since it didn't feel interesting. Heck I dropped out of it a few time before I finally watched the whole thing. So when I saw Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyou, I wasn't too happy, but I noticed how the cover didn't have Rikou in his human form, only his youkai form along with his clan and some new characters and I gave it a try. Believe me, I have no regrets making that decision.

Story: This is definitely a lot better than the first season. We have more background information, there is a read more

Anime: InuYasha
Has lots of demons and fighting in it. There are little parts of comedy and romance. The main character is a demon like inuyasha but only 1/4 blood is demon 
reportRecommended by pinkangel9252
Anime: Ao no Exorcist
Both characters have something to do with demons and they both have powers sleeping inside them that they can use only when certain conditions are meet, in Ao no Exorcist Rin gets his powers when he draws his sword, in Nurarihyon, Rikuo can only transform at night

Anime: D.Gray-man
Both Anime has Demons and Exorcist of different type. Nurarihyon story is mostly located in Japan where are D.Gray-man story location is through out the world. The Antagonist on D.Gray-Man looks funny but suprisingly strong along with some of his followers. D.Gray-Man is definitely not to be missed.
