Synopsis

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.

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

If there's one word I could describe Nurarihyon no Mago, it would have to be BORING.

Having read the adaptation I really had high hopes for this series as the formula to which Mago is about, is seldom used in shonén anime and if done right, would have definitely been one of the better series for 2010.

...but like I said, BORING. Here's why:

Story - 8
Nurarihyon no Mago is a tale of the supernatural. It's a tale of demons and spirits and the co-existence between their kind and ours. It's also a tale of Rikuo Nura and how he takes over his grandfathers clan known as read more

"Yet,when dawn breaks,you will return to your human form.And then will you forget that you are an youkai? If the day does not recognize your youkai form.Are you one person by day and another by night?"
"From the moment I became aware of my blood,my wish has been the same."

Nurarihyon no Mago is a breath of fresh air in the supernatural genre.The most awaited anime of the summer 2010,or even of the whole year? Absolutely !When I first read the manga in Autumn 2009 I had the same feeling when I read Fairy Tail,Kaichou wa Maid-sama,Letter Bee etc.,no,they don't have much in common,but it read more

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

Anime: Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
Similarities:
- 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)

Differences
- 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  read more

Anime: Kekkaishi
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  read more

Anime: D.N.Angel
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.
