Nurarihyon no Mago

Rikuo Nura is 3 parts human and a quarter Demon who lives in a house of spirits with his grandfather, the current clan head of the Nura youkai. Rikuo is set to be the next clan leader, despite the fact he dislikes his demon side. He soon comes to terms with his demon blood and decides to take his position as young master of the Nura house. However there are those who will certainly not allow it to be easy.


Episode 1 aired subbed today, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. =] Its based on a manga, so any fans of its manga series should probably check it out.
Its a bit of a refreshing take on the common theme of demons, all the while utilising the traditional style and designs of what demons were first thought to appear as. I also think the character designs are just awesome! (With Yuki Onna's design being my favorite.)

Definitely sticking with this one.

I sort of liked this one. It has that 90's anime feel to it. Probably gonna follow it.

be ever-so-kind to Studio Deen; then bring-out your baseball bat with rusty nails and
be careful "not to miss" when you swing-it! AnimeJunkies have a Hate-Hate relationship
with those clowns :nono:

Episode 2 was well done, if a little bit slower than episode 1. I thought having a snake-demon type thing as a loyal follower would end up kind of fishy though. I mean really, its a snake. They practically represent evil. xD

And *shrugs* ending theme seems fine to me. xD

Woah, this is actually turning out to be pretty good. It's like watching a demon mafia reality tv show lol.
And I'm with you ZS, yuki-onna is hellacute.

.. no, we've been pre-occupied with another series.

It didn't take to long for interest to swing away from this series.
Its' now Episode 6 and we have discovered that HE is the Aire
to a family tradition. Those whome stand behind him -- live.

While the Art is quite good, its pace is just too slow to keep its audience.

I'm gonna follow this to the end. It's rare that i like both the intro and outro song for a series, so this one is special to me. I don't know why but somehow this series reminds me of inuyasha ....

@post-it: Unfortunately, that's true. =c (about the little popularity it has.)

I've been busy in general though, so I haven't been watching much anime. Definitely gonna beast through it and catch up in a day. :3

@Zephyr: Really? XD Like, the music that plays in the background in the show?!
