Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, Eps 1-13

Watched this on Netlix and if I’d known it wasn’t complete, I wouldn’t have started it. Need to remember to look stuff up first.

Fairly enjoyable little romp about Yokai/half Yokai/quarter Yokai, but pretty standard antagonists. They come around every few 100 years and try to take over. Can only be killed in a certain manner.

Still, I liked what I saw.

(Can’t believe I sat through that recap Episode 13, what a waste of time.)

@Slowhand
This series is on Hulu and it looks like it has all the episodes you could ever want. Sub and dub is offered. I have this one on my watch list, so it’s nice to get an opinion!

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, Eps 14-26

Finally finished this up.

Really good plot twists and battle scenes. Emotions every which way.

Was disappointed in the end that the main antagonist wasn’t dispatched. The last episode left everything wide open.

Unfortunately, there isn’t another season… sigh, Guess I’ll need to read the manga to find out what happens.

And, another recap episode at the end - 23 minutes of time wasted.
