Nura: Rise Of The Yokai Clan Premieres On Animax Asia
Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan (ぬらりひょんの孫) is one anime that teaches us that there’s more to people than meets the eye.
Meet Nura Rikuo, a normal, everyday, junior high student. Underneath his ordinary, 12-year-old looks however rages Yokai (demon) blood. Rikou transforms into a powerful demon commander called Nurarihyon when night falls and returns to normal when the sun rises. Rikuo resides in a house full of demons who willingly throw themselves at his feet to serve their master, except for some who wish to take his place as the Young Head of their clan. Nurarihyon was known as the Lord of Pandemonium and was deeply feared by humans. However, it was not Rikuo’s intention to become one of them. Instead, Rikuo uses his power to help and save humans.
