Oops, you just cut his head
Early NuraNoMago post! I’m actually sneaking right now, cuz my dad has been controlling the laptop like a dictator. All for my Rikuo <3
Anything for this hotness
Let’s wrap this quickly since I don’t know when my father’s going to be back. Hehe. Hagoromo-Gitsune has more screen time in episode eight. She’s steadily defeating the Keikain Onmyouji and releasing the seals made by….uh, the Thirteenth? Bleh, I forgot his name already. Oh right, Hidemoto. ANYWAY, one of the sealed youkai is a huge Halloween costume that’s over-obsessed with Hagoromo-Gitsune, and it seems that he knows Gitsune since 4000 years ago. Such a faithful guy.

Halloween costumes: the bigger the better
Since the scenes keep switching back and forth from Rikuo to Hagoromo-Gitsune and vice versa, I’ll just lump their parts together. While Yura’s busy practicing something “taboo,” not involving with sleeping with her brother (too bad), the Keikain oldies are busy discussing their not-so-great plan to defeat Hagoromo-Gitsune. Here we find out that the Keikain bloodline is cursed to have their male sons die young, which explains why one of the old doode is desperate to get some help from the other branches. Unfortunately, the cocky but strong youngsters refuse to stay behind and decides to go ahead and act on their not-so-great plan: attack Hagoromo-Gitsune instead of waiting. Funny how these less than 50 years old youngsters are trying to attack a moving old woman who has lived for 4000 years already. Since we’re getting the hints, the youngsters were unable to trap Hagoromo-Gitsune. Akifusa, the white hair Onmyouji takes out his ultimate shaft-er, sword that seems to give Akifusa a youkai power. He looks hella creepy, I tell you.
They’re walking into the light. THIS IS A SIGN
A shota, a white haired uke, and a megane. My perfect harem
A skeleton to decorate the gorgeous barrier. Hagoromo-Gitsune has no sense of fashion
A scythe, but at least it’s better than HAL’S NANOHA STAFF
Back to Rikuo; who’s in a dilemma. He knows Kyoto is bad news now, so he must go there ASAP and defeat Hagoromo-Gitsune. Realizing his weakness though, Rikuo refuses to go and asks Itaku to train him
not in a sexual way more and more in order to become stronger. Before the Akifusa scene thingy, Reira and Dohiko send their doggy spies to check out Kyoto. After Akifusa took out his sword, the scene changes to Rikuo still practicing with Itaku non-stop, with Itaku being interested with Rikuo’s fear and Rikuo slowly is improving at his fights. Reira and Dohiko come with more bad news about Kyoto though, and that’s how he makes up his mind about going to Kyoto.
“I swear, I’m not lying, Rikuo! NAMAGAHE WAS SNIFFING YOUR PANTS.”
Itaku can’t help but remember that youkai mafia #yaoi
Rikuo humbly thanks the Tono Village, while making the villagers mad at the same time, saying that they are just a bunch of wusses, who won’t get anything but the mountain if they don’t go out (and join him to Kyoto, that’s the whole point of his talk). After leaving the main hall awesomely, Rikuo was about to leave when the ghey masks give him back Nenekimaru, with his training friends appeared behind Namagahe (since Itaku is special, he attacked Rikuo before he admits that he’s going as his “trainer.” Tsundere Itaku is love). Yes, they’re going with him to Kyoto, although they don’t want to exchange sakazuki with Rikuo. He takes out the wood that he has been using for practice and slashes Tono Village’s Fear, marking his journey to Kyoto with his new
*gasp* “A-a young man is pouring me sake!” *rape mode on*
“Here we go, Kyoto brothels!”

Obligatory younger Nurarihyon hotness
It’s nice to see more Keikain people in the house, yo. Although none of them can beat Hidemoto the 13th’s awesomeness, the youngsters seem pretty powerful. Heck, they are powerful actually; powerful to the point of disrespecting Hidemoto the 13th’s power. See, this reflects the attitude every youngsters will go through: they think they’re better than the older ones. And here we see that this attitude will always get the youngsters into trouble. Megane’s golden barrier and Shota’s shikigami aren’t so powerful now. The only one we didn’t get to see is Akifusa’s scythe that’s “famous” for “surpassing” Hidemoto the 13th’s Nenekimaru. Yeah right, impossible impossible. Although we didn’t get to see the power of Akifusa’s scythe, it’s obvious that Hagoromo-Gitsune won’t be defeated by Akifusa. How can I know? It’s not 24 episodes yet. Or 12 episodes. The power of logic.
Keikain isn’t so hot anymore, but Rikuo’s just burning up now. Obviously from his training, he has improved himself already, mentally and physically. First, he’s polite now. POLITE, CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!? Second, he was able to sneak to Aka-gappa without Aka-gappa realizing it. And his adorable youkai face, NNNGGGGHHHH. Rikuo didn’t even act like a boss when Tono youngsters see him off, instead he’s like “Yes, I need your help! Come with me!” SO HUMBLE. He’s the head of the Nura Clan, yet he’s not even acting like one. Even Awashima got trolled with this attitude of his. Rikuo’s personality is definitely developing here. He’s slowly getting mature *sniff* I remember when he used to run naked in my backyard….He’s slowly growing up now. *blows nose*
ANYHOW, nothing much is happening with the story, except Rikuo realizing that the one who killed his father is Hagoromo-Gitsune, who is advancing herself in Kyoto, and Keikain is getting weaker. I believe Keikain’s only hope now is Yura, who’s doing the secret training. From Akifusa’s claim that nobody in the Kekain can master the Hagun, my guess is that Yura is trying to master Hagun. Maybe Yura will be the next most powerful Onmyouji in the Keikain, after Hidemoto the 13th? Whatever it is, she needs to master it ASAP before Hagoromo-Gitsune breaks all the seals. And Rikuo needs get his butt into Kyoto ASAP.
Preview: OK, Akifusa’s attacking Kana. Maybe it’s not Akifusa, remembering that there’s another youkai with long hair, but someone/a youkai is attacking Kana. I hope she dies. And Tsurara in Kyoto, teaming with Yura to attack the youkai that attacked Kana? Whatever Yura and Tsurara will do, is amazing how they’re actually teaming up. I guess when danger is lurking around, the impossible is possible.
