So far, it seems like a pretty good story. I have learned more about youkai from this story than Inuyasha (much of the story is like a youkai encyclopedia). The characters are decent enough. Rikuo is actually one shounen star who actually knows how to use his power instead of going through the painfully long process of gaining strength as he goes along.

The only problem I have is that all of the youkai have called him "Rikuo" in his night form in front of Kana and long is it supposed to take for them to realize who he is?

I think this manga is an excellent mix of original and standard, generic shounen elements.

The first few chapters do suffer a bit from monster-of-the-week syndrome and the timeline is a little confusing as it jumps around a bit (and where does the original oneshot fit in, or is that not canon?). However it doesn't take long at all for this series to find its footing, and I was hooked after about 10 chapters. It also feels like there is real character development happening, as even with the relatively small number of chapters that are out now some of the characters have already started to grow and mature (And no, by 'grow and mature' I don't mean 'trained and gained new powers'. I mean actual character growth.).

The fight scenes have been cool but mercifully short (at least so looks like that might be changing, though). I do get annoyed by the tendency of shounen manga to drag out fights for chapter after chapter, but that hasn't been a problem with this manga (yet). There is also a potentially interesting romantic subplot developing, though it hasn't really been the focus thus far.

Anyway, to sum it up I think this series gets off to a bit of a confused start but quickly develops into something that has a lot of potential. There's action, comedy, romance, and enough original ideas to keep things interested. What more do you want?

this is a very interesting manga , although some might feel its a little bit generic shounen and some might feel the pace in the beginning being somewhat disconnected. but i say give this manga a chance , it does have the potential to be really good, at least i enjoyed it and feel its worth my time

I think that the story is so so, but the characters remind me of Inuyasha .I don't say you copy, so don't take it the wrong way.And the way the story builds is a little sleepy, when time comes , the main character becomes superman, why doesn't he fight when he is in normal form, like shin angyo onshi . ...blah blah blah........

i really like rikuos personality and his night form is really cool too.. and kanas really cute when she blushes... but the story is really good... i like how rikuos slowly becoming more accepting of his youkai self... id love to see what happens if everyone finds out about him. the art is really good too, very japanese-esque, and the eyes are beautiful.

I've enjoyed this series a lot so far, the main character is likable as well as the secondary characters. Hope its continued for a longer period and not ended abruptly like Double Arts.

Not bad.. I like the story plot. The whole, born into a "bad guy" family but really wants to be the "good guy". I didnt think it would be as good at first, but the recent few chapters were interesting.

The characters are mostly likeable. I like Nura alot especially in his youkai form. becos... *blushes* hahaha.

The drawing was not too bad. Its kinda messy at times. and some of those youkai is scary.....and gross. LOL

I cant wait to see how the manga will further develop.

I like it, it has a nice mix for everybody. I've never heard of youkai, or a 13 year old kid in manga that isn't 7 feet tall. So it passes originality. For art, it isn't the greatest, but everything is detailed and it's art style reminds me of Muhyo to Roji. The fights as well as the fighting styles are unique and entertaining. It keeps me reading. I agree that the beginning was kind of episodic like Reborn!, but then the gears started moving, and the plot went along the path it should. But at least it didn't take 60 chapters...[Took, what, maybe 5 or 6?] Nice series, I recommend to all.

i like this manga, semi original plot, interesting characters, nice romance subplot. but what really pisses me off is that two different groups are scantalating it, such a waste when so many good series are arent being translated, or have retardedly slow releases that one manga has two different groups working on it at break-neck speeds..... welll my 2 cents

I am changing my comment after the latest chapters.
This is getting sooo good... It wasn't bad at the begining... but lately it's just getting better and better... the story gets such depth... the characters too... And the art is just awesome.

Some of the latest events are just incredibly satisfying. I can't wait for the rest of the story ! Definitively my favorite manga right now.
