May we never get too old for Shounen Anime.

Rikuo Nura seems like an normal middle school student. After school, he hangs out with his friends in their special club - a club dedicated to finding Yokai, Japanese Demons. Unknown to them, Rikuo is destined to be the head of the Nura Clan, and lead the night parade of a thousand demons. Though he vehemently denies his demon blood at first, pressure from his clans enemies push Rikuo to make a decision.

It's hard to judge a Shounen Anime, because the earliest installments don't usually reflect the series's full potential. These early episodes have simple plots - somehow Rikuo's friends are being threatened by demons, and he miraculously transforms into his night form to save them right in the nick of time. None of his enemies try attacking at dawn after he's revered back to his human form. A cynical viewer might find it boring, but fans of the less flashy shounen series might appreciate the slow start. Almost reminds me of Rurouni Kenshin, where the bumbling wanderer Himura would "transform" into a skilled swordsman to save everyone at the end of each episode.

What's refreshing is Rikuo's character, he's a nice, ordinary boy (if you don't count the demon blood). He doesn't have a Punk attitude like Yusuke (Yu Yu Hakusho) or Ichigo (Bleach), and he's not dumb as a box of rocks like Goku (Dragonball) or Luffy (One Piece). His problem is somewhat relateable, "Are you willing to shoulder a lifelong responsibility? Because the alternative is watching the system fall apart without you?" And he behaves in a believable way.

What doesn't help are most of his friends from school: the two boys and two girls who add almost nothing every episode, except to need rescuing.

Before I begin this review I want to say that it is for the Blu-ray set only, and not the DVD release. Not that it makes much a difference, except for the quality... it will also be a review of the product and dub voice actors/features too. Not a review of the actual series for the most part.

When this series first released in Japan in the summer of 2010 I knew I wanted to try it out, but decided ahead of time that I'd rather see it dubbed. So finally, 3 years later, it is released here in the U.S. dubbed! It was well worth the wait for me.

What you get with this box set is not much to say the least. As far as extras go all you receive is the creditless opening and ending themes, color production art and a trailer for Viz Media's Neon Alley service (still more extras than InuYasha The Final Act got though). The case is the usual Blu-ray disc casing with the cheap recyclable packaging. The only insert that it came with was an advertisement for Neon Alley (all Viz releases contain this now.) - As far as the cover art goes I'm personally not a fan of it. I wanted something with more action and characters on it, but it'll do until the series /hopefully/ gets a full set release, if it does that is. The disc art looks amazing though. It's so simple, but the illustrations of night Rikuo and Tsurara look great with the pink and blue colors behind them. For the quality of the Blu-ray release it is in the regular 1080i quality and looks fantastic. The colors look vibrant and very high quality on my flatscreen.

The dub voice actors and voice actresses all fit pretty well I think. I specifically feel that Rikuo (night & human) got a perfect voice actor for him.

I got this anime a little bit ago thinking I would try watching something new, I was not disappointed. This anime is great, a little slow because there aren't many fighting scenes in it, but it is definitely entertaining. I will definitely be getting the rest of the series to see what happens next. I went from watching Fairytale and Inuyasha to this (I like the slower paced animes with hardly any fighting too). I would recommend this to anyone that likes animes like fruits baskets or my bride is a mermaid.

The series give a nice mix of Kekkaishi and Inu Yasha with a entertaining emphasis on the lore of Yokai and the tradition in Japan society. The series shows us a clan of yokai who have recently been introduced to their new clan leader a mix of yokai/human heritage but with hidden power that rivals any other clan leader and also with his upcoming positions has him set to become leader of all yokai. Of course there are some yokai who refuse this and start their own hidden agenda of rebellion and pretty much you have the intro to the series. The characters are both unique and endearing with their own quirky personalities and habits and of course the young lord who has to juggle both his yokai clan responsibilities along with his human social life.

The animation is good and the soundtrack fits the series nicely with a good tempo for the action/drama scenes. For the animation I say it's pretty similar to the mentioned series Kekkaishi to a point and kudos to the voice cast both the Japanese subbed and English dub for doing a terrific job with their character roles. So for fans of the mentioned Kekkaishi or Inu Yasha series or just anime fans looking for an entertaining series in general here's one to definitely look at.
