The manga is about Rikuo Nura, a kid that is 3/4 human and 1/4 youkai. He lives in a house full of spirits alongside his grandfather who is the leader of the youkai. Rikuo is destined to take over his grandfather leadership but his human side has no interest. Rikuo is just a normal kid who has no interest to become the leader of youkai.

My Thought:

Nurarihyon no mago, is one of my favorite manga, I like it because a lot of adventures and mystery as well as little romance.

The story is about Rikuo the grandson of Yokai leader Nurarihyon, when Rikuo was a child he saw his father Rihyon get killed in front of his eyes but he didn’t remember it till later on. 

As a child Rikuo respected his grandfather a lot and he wanted to be like him, he always thought that being a Yokai is so cool … that until he start hearing that yokai are bad and they should stay away from them although people in this century can’t really see yokai … that way he decided to live his life as a human since his mother and grandmother are both human he is ¾ human and ¼ yokai … which he can only transfer to his yokai form at night … but his grandfather want him to be the third leader to his yokai clan.

Little by little Rikuo will start learn more and more about being a yokai and will have to prove himself to his clan member so they except him as their leader and then when he will find his father killer.

Overall, the story is so fun, I like it so much and can’t wait to put my hand on the next Vol. there are also anime for this manga … two series each have 25 episode on it … if you would like to watch :) 

Rating: 4.5/5
