Rikuo Nura appears to be an average middle school student. No one knows that he comes home every day to a house full of youkai, nor that he transforms into the all-powerful leader of these spirits at night. However, much to the disappointment of many, Rikuo is determined to live as normal a life as possible.

Ah...Nurarihyon no Mago. An interesting anime indeed.

Before I start reviewing, I have to admit, I'm a big sucker for Jun Fukuyama voicing characters with alter egos (e.g. Lelouch/Zero in Code Geass, Ryner/Ryner with Alpha Stigma activated in Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu and of course, Rikuo Day/Rikuo Night in Nurarihyon no Mago), so excuse me if I sound a bit biased here.

Now, on to the actual review:

Story (7/10): You have your classic reluctant hero, Nura Rikuo, heir to the Nura Clan. 3/4 human and 1/4 youkai, he lives a normal school life by day and controls an army of youkai by night. The story details read more

This is a pretty well established anime. A young kid who is half human,half demon takes control of the strongest demon clan(the clan he belongs to) and proves to be much more different than the previous rulers. Thanks to his human side. And so not to give anything away, the story develops from there and deals with the tasks of uniting humans and demons. The anime is well animated, has a easy simple plot to follow and entertaining as hell. Pretty good character development as well if you like that kind of stuff from your anime. It is well worth a watch and i recommend read more

If you like demon-powered characters this is an anime you would like to see.The main character is a boy named Nura Rykuo and is a heir of a very big clan of demons.Though he doesnt know his demon powers,later in the anime he embraces them for the sake of his loved ones and to save his clan from its enemies.

Though maybe for some anime fans the demon-powered animes arent their favorite,i would recommend it for its plot which will amaze you with its twist,plus the art which is surealistic and makes you wonder if those demons actually exist.It is an anime that will make you read more

Edited this review by the way :)
Grammar Nazis? GTFO lol. This review is not for you. Why not create your own then? :P

Glad that my friend let me watch this great stuff.
Okay now let’s start.
What will you do if you will become a powerful commander?

Story: 9/10
The story revolves around Nura Clan. A Clan of “youkai” that controls 10,000 demons. Amongst them is what they called “supreme commander” a very powerful “youkai”.
Now for the protagonist story so far. Nurarhiyon no Mago didn’t lack story backgrounds at all. They explained what happened in the past with the right execution. Except for the flashbacks that his read more

- Both heirs to their respective families, Nura Rikuo and Sawada Tsunayoshi are expected to take up the mantle as their next respective heads, and both are trying to evade their fate.
- Both have their respective cool transformations (Yoru Rikuo and HDWM Tsuna, respectively)
- Both have their own entourage (Nura Clan and Vongola Family)

- Tsuna's still denying it, while Rikuo accepted his role with a bang after the first few episodes
- Tsuna only found out about being boss at the first episode, while Rikuo lived with yokai all his life
- Tsuna seems detached from his HDWM, and isn't as cool when he's normal, while Rikuo tends to be badass even when not in Yoru Rikuo form
Both have protagonists whose appearance changes during fight scenes and both include demons (yokai) and exorcists.
There is more than one similarity within these two series. The biggest one is the life of the two main charachters. In the morning Yoshimori (Kekkaishi) and Rikuo (Nurarihyon no Mago) they going to school having a normal life with their friends, classic Slice of Life anime, but when the Sun goes down they both become a different persons they both chosen ones - so to say, and they are not sure at the beginning are they fit to inherit they grandfathers place! They both protect humans although Rikuo is 1/4 demon!
The fighting, comedy and tension is mutual in both anime's. So there is no mistake, you will definitely like both anime's if you like demons/spirits action!
Nurarihyon no Mago shares with D.N.Angel a crucial premise: your average teenager dealing with his first crush that can transform in a supernatural, fascinating and strong being. Reason and plot are different, but the feeling the shows both give are similiar.
A young boy must succeed his famous grandfather. Both also have supernatural and fantasy themes.

Both main characters are partly human and youkai and have long white hair in their youkai form. They both are strong and get along with humans.
