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

Exceptional!! For the people who are reading this your probably sick of hearing this but i'll say it anyway. THE 1ST SEASON WAS A DISAPPOINTMENT, but to be expected! However it did serve its purpose... It introduced all the characters need to know and what the plot may include. However some people have expected something else, but I found it worth while to watch. The first season started slow that why people hate it.

However, if you are still deciding whether to go on and watch this season, I say go for it! You wont go wrong. The story has more depth, more violence, and read more

Nurarihyon no Mago ~Sennen Makyou~ is indeed the continuation-- the second season of Nurarihyon no Mago, but this season really differs in overall story and intensity. While you're just gonna stay relaxed and breathing normally watching the first, wait until you actually start watching the second!

The story itself is way better than the first. The first one always focuses on bunch of kids on their adventure on searching yokais, and that sucks. The battles themselves didn't have much of a meaning and many of them were just wall displays-- they ended so quickly without any tension. Everything just remained unclear there and leaves us into read more

After completing the whole season 1 and season 2, I have gotta say that the clear difference between season 1 and 2 , is that the 1st season has lots of comedy side however in season 2, the plot thickens and intensify which is actually good.

I will be giving this story 9/10 but the plot can still be further developed like why is the night so long? I am actually surprised that rikuo classmates are not going on a yokai journey since like they are so interested in them which always put themselves in danger. Not to mention, kana chan which is seemingly rikuo read more

Both Rin and Rikuo are part demon and have powers which they use to fight and protect their friends. But both of them are somewhat reluctant to use their powers at times.

Both animes are Shounen with lots of awesome action and fights!
youkai~~ Natsume is refreshing relaxing and this one is filled with combat but somehow i feel like they same
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

-Continuation of the first season
-Plot unfolds
-Bishounen characters( Yokais etc)
-There are oni, tengu, mountain god, and many other Japanese mythologies/folklore

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.
These two anime feature battles between different factions of demons with each character having their own special powers. The protagonist from each is (mostly) human, but is dragged into these conflicts through circumstance. Check out both of these for the Shounen action and the diverse cast of characters.
