Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan Set 1 (DVD)

Rikuo Nura is an average middle school student by day and yokai by night. He's not just any yokai-he is the grandson of Nurarihyon, the Supreme Commander of the Nura Clan! Rikuo wants to live a normal life. However, his grandfather wants him to succeed as the rightful heir. When an inter-clan conflict threatens the stability within their organization, Rikuo must decide whether he will live his life as a human or accept his yokai heritage.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
In 2008, mangaka Hiroshi Shiibashi created "Nurarihyon no Mago", first published in Shueisha in 2007 and then received a serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2008. With a total of 25 tankobon volumes as of December 2012, the popular manga series would receive a 26-episode TV adaptation back in 2010 courtesy of Studio DEEN.

The series is directed by Junju Nishimura ("Kyo kara Maoh!", "Dog Days", "Ranma 1/2″, "True Tears"), series composition by Natsuko Takahashi ("Bleach", "Brothers Conflict", "ATASHIn'CHI", "Gankutuou: The Count of Monte Cristo"), music by Kouhei Tanaka ("Dirty Pair", "Ah! My Goddess", Jojo's Bizarre Adventure", "Gad Guard", "One Piece") and character design by Mariko Oka ("Hell Girl", "Hetalia the Beautiful World", "Tactics").

VIDEO:

"Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Set 1″ is presented in 1080i High Definition. The animation is vibrant, well-detailed and the art backgrounds are painted with great detail and for the most part, this is a very colorful anime series which I didn't detect any banding issues, nor did I see any artifacts or softness. Colors are sharp, black levels are nice and deep, line detail is very good and the series looks fantastic on Blu-ray!

AUDIO:

The lossless soundtrack for "Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Set 1″ is in Japanese and English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. As one can expect from a front channel driven soundtrack, dialogue is crystal clear but I wished the soundtrack was given the 5.1 treatment because it's an action-driven series with many characters. But that's how TV series are in Japan and the overall soundtrack provides clarity and good dynamic range. As for the acting, acting on both soundtracks are magnificent.
