Every man should be like Nurarihyon
Howdy guys! I’m not writing a lot in Meta these days, and it’s because I resigned my position to be the writer of R-15. In fact, that piece of shit has been scrapped off from our summer anime list. Thank god for that. So I’ll be more focused on Nurarihyon No Mago now! IMO hot nurarihyon youkai > ero writer. I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me if you saw episode 5 already. DEM ABS.
Boys with swords are so sexy
…*cough* Digressing, I know. Anyhow, like a groom that’s late for his own wedding, Nurarihyon starts episode 6 by rushing to the Osaka Castle by himself in order to rescue Youhime. Like how every dumped uke faithful minion should be, Gyuki stops Nurarihyon so that Nurarihyon won’t go to Youhime and tells his sexy boss to cool himself down. Obviously Nurarihyon isn’t listening because he’s a Youhime stalker, and every stalker needs to be near the object he stalks. Thus he rushes off again to Osaka Castle. Poor Gyuki and his lonely gluteus maximus.
In Osaka Castle, Kitsune has already started her SM lesbian orgy. She has been buying princesses who have extraordinary abilities in order to eat their livers. And how does she do that? WHILE KISSING THE PRINCESS, SUCK THE LIVER OUT, which means, the princess has to go through the pain of feeling her own liver sliding up through her own throat.
And now it is Youhime’s turn to feel her own liver stuck in her throat. Fortunately, our sexy hero Nurarihyon comes in and crashes the party. What’s better, it seems like his minions followed him too! Awww such loyalty I need minions like them. However, Nurarihyon is losing though because he got no them fabulous tails Kitsune has. Nah, Kitsune’s actually kind of strong, that’s why.
Back to the Keikain household, the bald onmyouji reports the condition to his boss, which happens to be his little brother Hidemoto. As they ride the fiery horse carriage to the direction of the Osaka Castle, Hidemoto explains the existence of Kitsune (gosh I keep forgetting her first name). Kitsune is the type of youkai that possesses the human host and lets the host grow until they become adults. After which Kitsune takes over the body and starts absorbing malice in order to gain power. Although Kitsune only has a human’s life span (the host’s), this makes it very hard to kill Kitsune since its true body is hidden in the host. And since Nurarihyon’s level isn’t that powerful, it’ll be very hard to kill Kitsune since she reincarnated several times already, thus making her a strong youkai. But of course, there’s always a solution to every problem. And Hidemoto knows the solution.
Hottest ride of the season. Pun intended.
The solution is the youkai blade, Nenekimaru. If Nurarihyon can slice her with it, Kitsune can be defeated. And like every stalker who owns something of the object he stalks, Nurarihyon happens to carry Youhime’s Nenekimaru. After confessing his love for Youhime (while he’s hurt?), suddenly Nurarihyon powers up (like in a game) and slices Kitsune’s face with Nenekimaru. Her face splits open, and the youkai power escapes through that crack on her face.
Obsessed over her youkai power, Kitsune breaks the roof and comes out from the room, trying to get it back vainly. Nurarihyon follows her, only to get attacked by Kitsune’s tail and to get his own liver taken by her (whut). Kitsune’s angry, so Nurarihyon is basically screwed right now. Fortunately Hidemoto comes in and captures Kitsune by his super onmyouji powuh. While Kitsune is being tied by Hidemoto through his power, Nurarihyon, like the main character, cuts Kitsune again, now deeper than before. As the main body is escaping from the host (Why isn’t Nurarihyon attacking it!?), Kitsune puts a curse on Nurarihyon’s bloodline. Uh oh.
With the main boss defeated, Youhime suddenly appears out of nowhere and accepts Nurarihyon’s proposal with the cheesiest line saying that she wants to heal him now and forever. As the Nura Clan is having a Party Like a Rockstar at Hidemoto’s house, Nurarihyon is having a drink with Hidemoto, discussing about himself and the youkai world. Listening to Nurarihyon, Hidemoto thinks that co-existence between human and youkai can be achieved by him. After he’s done drinking, Nurarihyon goes back to his Nura Clan, telling them that they’re going back to Edo because after all, he will be a Lord of the Night Pandemonium. What an ambition.
Priceless. And One-Eye has a loli now
Extra Nurarihyon greatness:
Sorry to ask you this Nurarihyon, but is that Buddha statue necessary in your tattoo?
This is where plastic surgery comes in
Well damn, that must’ve hurt
Eyes that can rape omnomnom
I have to admit that loli is pretty adorable
I actually enjoyed episode five. The fighting is pretty good, they’re actually fighting, unlike what they did in season one. There are lots and lots and lots of blood too, woohoo! More blood is always better. The animation of this episode is well done, so I have nothing to complain about it. Better than season one obviously. The contrast for the battle is too dark for the night time though, I think they should make it a little bit lighter. My screencaps are all black here =( Except the contrast, everything is all good. I have a problem though with this episode. The characters talk too much, sometimes in-between their fights. No, they don’t talk while they’re fighting. They stop, talk, THEN start fighting. I find that to be utterly illogical and ridiculous. Like I said before, the battle is well done, but still… Stop talking between your fights! I’m making a pretty big deal of this because the battle is basically the whole point of this episode. Unfortunately, since the anime follows the manga, obviously the whole stop-fighting-then-start-talking thingy also happens in the manga. I never like it every time that happens (which is, like, most of the time D=)
And gosh, Nurarihyon is just ridiculously adorable. I mean, the dude’s all beaten up by Kitsune, and then he confesses his love to Youhime? Whut? And why did he recover in a snap? Is his confession some kind of ritual where he can level up by confessing? That is just plain stupid and weird. But I guess Nurarihyon is excused, since he’s hot as hell in this episode. Those abs are just sexy, and his hair just makes him sexier. I like how he’s really devoted to Youhime too. We need more men that are willing to sacrifice their lives for their women. Just give me a man that has Nurarihyon’s attitude, I am more than ready to date him. I like Hidemoto too. As a new character, he’s actually pretty impressive. Even Nurarihyon doesn’t have the whole 12 gods greatness. It seems that Hidemoto is pretty childish though, judging from the amount of children toys we can see in his room. Or maybe he plays with his shikigami, that’s why the toys are there. If that’s the reason (which I think it is), then it’s so sad that he has no friends to play with D’=. I guess that’s why he’s so interested in Nurarihyon when he ate in his house (an onmyouji’s house, so silly but awesome of Nurarihyon xD). Anyhow, Hidemoto has an impressive introduction, and I like him.
After thinking about it, I actually like this episode. I didn’t like it at first, but maybe it’s because I watched it at 5 AM. After re-watching it again, I just realized that the battle is actually good. Not as great as the manga, but there are definitely improvements from the first season. I like the main characters more and more too, both old and new. They’re just so great in this episode. Oh well, this episode marks the end of the Osaka Arc, and I guess we won’t be seeing Nurarihyon’s great Nura Clan then. Instead, we’re stuck with Rikuo’s amateur group (compared with his grandfather’s group, Rikuo’s group is nothing) and the not-so-awesome awesomeness of Rikuo. Also, we won’t be seeing Hidemoto again then, since the arc already ended D’=. Anaaga is sad, and she’ll be missing Hidemoto, younger Nurarihyon’s awesomeness, and the awesomeness of Nurarihyon’s group.
Preview: It seems that we’ll get a new character next week (his voice sounds so sexy omnomnom). And why is Nurarihyon unsheathing his sword? Was Rikuo being a bad boy? Does Rikuo needs to be spanked?
