From Viz:
Rikuo grew up in a house full of yokai, so he always thought they were cool. But the kids in his class talk about yokai like they're bad! When his grandfather announces Rikuo as his chosen heir to run the Nura clan, Rikuo is torn between his human nature and his duties as a yokai. The rest of the clan's not so crazy about a wimpy part-human as their ruler, particularly Gagoze, a high-ranking yokai who would rather eat a human than be ruled by one.

More Interesting Than Most Mainstream Shounen Manga

The art is really great, the characters are quite interesting and majority of them get a lot of panel time, the ending was not so bad either.

Overall I'd say it's a must read for underrated battle shounen

Great yokai manga

I love the atmosphere of this series. The protagonist has some rooms to improve, but he's accompanied by quite a lot of great supporting characters. The later part of the manga feels very rushed. It really need another 30+ chapters to really explore the last arc.

Reading nurarihyon until chapter 130 is actually a good experience, it's not a great, amazing shounen, but has a promise that keeps me interested. The problem here is after the Kyoto arc (and the end of it), the author had lose himself, the final is rushed, Abe no seimei don't is interesting (author fault, because the idea of him as a villain is great), and some powerups without explanation or sense. So, after finish nurarihyon, i had a feeling of disappointed, because was a "good" manga, and it's just a generic shounen after all

Honestly one of my favorite series. Interesting premise and abundance of lore. An interesting deviation on Abe no Seimei and the ninetails. The MC grows and learns to accept himself and then somehow needs to relearn this(the powercreep is real). After this, the series hits a head where it should have expanded into a new arc, possible the next to last but instead we get a rushed and botched up job including many random Deus ex machinas and power ups without and type of exposition. Whether this was done as an attempt to wrap up because there was fore knowledge of the series getting axed or he was just tired of the series, who knows.

It really is a great and fun series to read but do so at your own risk because you will be utterly disappointed at the ending.

One of the most overrated manga

It baffle me how this manga can be serialized this long and not get axed.

Let start with the character while it was diverse, but the personality was really bland and not unique or remotely interesting, that include all the character. Instead of focusing on the growth or building the personality, the author keep introducing side character that just end up suck. It makes this manga have so many half-assess character. To make thing worse the MC have so many drastic personality change, sometimes so weak sometimes act high and mighty, I'm talking about both human and ayakashi side. Also that hair it looks cool at the start but when it reach chap 80 or so it just look stupid and silly, wtf that hair.

The battle, its sooo boring, there's no clear strength you can't even predict anything sometimes the weak grow strength suddenly without any reason sometimes the strong one feel so weak. There's also sneak attack but that never work, whenever someone able to get behind the enemy they never be able to deliver blow or even a small cut, either they miss or got counter attacked seriously after a while I just know it wont work without turning the page. Of course I finally realize the author just can't draw any cool thing anymore so he just copy paste all old pose, which is why there's so many scene where someone suddenly appear behind, it looks cool at 1st repeat it many times without different outcome just make it silly.

The story, actually the story is quite good, too bad it doesn't have interesting character or battle to accompanied it making the story just barely feel okay.

It wasn't bad. Typical shounen from the start, not a bad build up with semi-interesting characters... And then something goes horribly, horribly wrong after chapter ~130. Plot goes bonkers, and there are so many things that are plain illogical considering the story is supposed to take place in "normal" world. Ending feels rushed as well.

It's a great read to Hagoromo(?) gitsine / Nue ark...
but, after it's ends and hundred tells clan starts...
and you starts to lack interest...
and after 150 it's feels not worth reading...
Though Rihan was a funny one... ^_~

Great Manga for the first 100chapters

The last 50 chapters is crap leading to an ending in what I'll call the katekyo hitman reborn syndrome. In which you were left wondering what was the point of all this. A lot of questions and plot devices are left unanswered and unsolved. Other symptoms of this syndrome include but are not limited to;
-Somehow making alliances with enemies that hate you with no apparent effort.
-People who should be dead coming back to life.
-Characters who lost power gaining it back through plot hacks
- Random power ups to beat an impossibly strong enemy through the power of friendship aka "friendship punch"
Enjoyable up to the end though

What yokai element

My friends keep bringing up the yokai element, but to me it's just monster of the week? It takes more than lip service and art style to incorporate a theme.

It's also funny how I like the female characters in Nurarihyon, but I don't like how it treats them, because Tsurara is serious badass but she's characterized by her crush on Nura, and the Hagoromo Gitsune is similarly devoted to her son?

Well beside that the story's got nothing interesting going on, like I guess some characters are interesting but their interactions are so utterly flat. I keep buying this manga because seriously look at the pretty. Like, I don't even read the word balloons anymore, I just give in the look at the pretty.

A memorable series despite its faults

I find it to be an enjoyable series with superb artwork. Each character has their own unique personality, and the sheer amount of yokai that you can learn about in this manga is amazing. They are portrayed in such a way that they are recognizible to those who are into mythology.
Overall: 9
Art: 10-Artwork is different from many of the other manga i've read. It's unique and yokai are recognizable due to their physical characterristics. Panels that include fighting sequences can be a bit messy, but otherwise, the artwork is amazing.
Characters: 7- Characters all have their own unique personalities. I found the character development lacking in quite a few places, but otherwise decent. One thing that I find annoying is the sheer amount of characters that appear/reappear in the series. Characters that disappear for a while are barely (if even) remembered later on down the storyline.
Plot: 7- Plot is quite repetitive. The plot is also a cliche shounen (Hero fights big bad guy--> Hero loses--> Hero has hissy fit next chapter--> Close friend/ whoever snaps Hero out of emo moment--> Hero somehow becomes unbelievibly stong in a short amount of time--> Hero goes back to defeat enemy--> Next enemy comes in), but despite it being cliche, it is also an excellent series that I will continue to read until the end.
