Rikuo Nura appears to be an ordinary middle school student. Appearances, however, can be deceiving. In reality, the young boy has one-fourth of youkai blood and is the heir to a large clan of youkai led by his grandfather, Nurarihiyon. As a small child, he was told that youkai often perform evil deeds, leading to his reluctance to succeed the Nura Clan and doing whatever he could to avoid his destiny.

During the night, Rikuo undergoes a transformation into a fearsome youkai who resembles Nurarihiyon in his prime. Realizing that he can use his power to protect others, he accepts his inheritance, aiming to unite all the youkai factions across Japan and establish his own "Night Parade of a Hundred Demons."

I decided to write this review because all other people that wrote the reviews here haven't finished the manga....

So first I need to say that I watched both seasons of the anime, and after that I decided to read the manga (started on chapter 134 until 210 and then read the 5 omakes that come after)

I will be sincere, the story starts slow, but after a while it gets really good.
The second main arc (with Hagoromo Gitsune) is the best for me... after that the manga gets a little bit slow again, but then it get's better, SO DON'T GIVE UP

The manga got axed by read more

1-History:The story revolves around a character who seeks to become the leader of the "Nura clan", clan that covers 10,000 youkai, this character lives (at least at the beginning) in an impasse between living as a human or in his "ayakashi" way (he is 1/4 youkai), obviously I couldn’t focus on just that, the work itself is very vast and well built, the plot is well interwoven, requiring a certain intelligence to understand it as a whole (which I admire), in addition a person who started the work "of middle "(as many do) would have difficulty understanding what was going on, this work is a read more

It's quite a bit to unpack and all this 210 chapter series. Not really wanting to go an exposition, unless I really like the series I could go on for ages talking about the series. It's not that the series was bad or uninteresting it's just for some reason the last 10 chapters took me about 2 weeks to read, that's why it took me a month to read all this. Either I would fall asleep while reading the chapters or I would fall asleep with my phone in my hand right before I opened up the app to read. I would be at work read more

One of the better new ear shonen but its ending forces it to get knocked down a bit.

The main feature of this manga was its art, which was done beautifully. I like the character designs which felt with the main art style. It was gritty yet at times beautiful. The villains were bizarre but not over the top. Some of them had depth while others were a bit lacking especially the rat youkais.

I give the author props for not dragging the story on but I felt like the ending was gone too quickly which makes it feel empty. The ending is similar to read more
