I will kick start the string of episode 6 reviews with Nurarihyon!
What a nice way to start a dreaded Monday as always.
This episode of NnM is what I would like to call the “Training Phase”, most typical Shounen plots go through this:
Main character is an underdog in some way shape or form >> proves to have some sort of strength >> meets a challenge which he can’t overcome >> “Training Phase” required in order to gain the strength to meet challenge >> etc.
What another exciting episode! This episode continues the Past Arc from last episode and the episode ends with the conflict and the Osaka situation being resolved.
(contains episode spoilers)
Nurarihyon goes to the Osaka Castle chasing after Princess Yo and Hagoromo Gitsune while Koremitsu goes back to the Keikain main house to report to his brother, Hidemoto.
Screencaptures to be added later today. Here they are =) (please note that the images contains episode spoilers, so ignore them if you don;t want to be spoiled.
What better way is there to kick start a week than with a good shounen anime series that is awesomely paced like Nurarihyon no Mago?
This season is definitely better than the last and the consistency in the quality of the episodes makes me crave more and more.
This episode is the flashback arc to what happened in Kyoto in the past and introduces us to the beginning of the meeting between the Keikain Clan, Nurarihyon, and Haguromo Gitsune. The whole episode is a buildup to the eventual meeting between these three main parties with the catalyst of it all being Princess Yo; a human with magical healing powers whom the Keikain Clan have been paid to protect. Nurarihyon had seek her out due to her renowned beauty and decided to court her while in Kyoto dealing with business related to Haguro Gitsune.
