I had no idea about that special even existed. Is it recent?
Edit: ok, it's the Jump anime tour special from 2010. It was included in the BD box of the first season.

Just one more seal left. That Hagoromo-Gitsune girl is smart & strong and knows what she want and how to get it.
Kubinashi sure knows how to get serious..
Rikuo & Zen ^^' & troubles in the sky.
Finding new friends among enemies, that's so Rikuo!

That Setsura cover saddens me. It screams "forever alone ;_;"

Let's hope Rikuo won't make the same mistake as his grandfather.

Rikuo marrying with a human girl would lead the Nura blood almost to its extintion. Worse than this, the child wouldn't have enough yokai blood.

based on what logic, exactly? apparently rhian led the clan to its ultimate height with half of what grandpa had. and rikuo got to where he is now with yet half of that ... obviously crossing youkai with human blood creates something with power of its own. so over-simplistic math might not quite grasp the powerlevels in this special case.

This is all product of Gitsune's curse, whose purpose is to lead the Nura blood to its absolute extintion.

-Nurarihyon married a human woman because that was his wish. Rhian was born, with half human blood and half yokai blood.

-Rhian married with his second wife because the curse made him impossible to have children with his first yokai wife.

-And for that reason Rikuo was born with only a 1/4 of yokai blood. If Rikuo were to marry a human girl, a child with a 1/8 of yokai blood would be born.

As Nayrael said, beating the curse would give Rikuo and the Nura clan a sense of victory.

Wait, how do we know about Rhian's first yokai wife and him not being able to have babies? When was this? I totally missed this...

If that is the case all the more reason to win out in this arc. If they can't beat that curse eventually the Nura bloodline will be lost. It can only dilute so much before they either won't have enough strength or be youkai enough to rule. Not that they should make choices purely based on that, but either the next generation or the one after will have to decide whether they want the youkai part of their bloodline to last or become so minimal it barely counts as existing.

I think we're very close to unintentionally leaking manga spoilers.

Anyway, no one's shipping Rikuo and Kitsune? She's "human" after all.

this should be more aesthetic more especially on fighting scenes. well the onmyouji had a very good role from the first series, she's just like the girl version of rockman X",

finally caught up. this is really the most glorious arc of the manga, and it's even better in the anime.

Next episode is 12.5... in other words, a recap.

The Nura clan finally landed in Kyoto. Slowly making way to Hagoromo Gitsune.
Onmyoji are in a serious pinch.. no match to the ayakashi, but Yura & the summoned guy could make a serious difference when they team up with Nura clan.

Does anyone know how many episodes are they going to release for the show? My usual sources are just showing 13 episodes so far (and Nayrael mentioned that the next one is a recap). It would really suck if the season ended on a recap.

As for episode 12, I feel that the music (or lack there of) is off this episode. I could not feel the same epicness of episodes past... well, at least until the end of the episode.

Spoiler for Episode 12:


Overall, it was another solid episode. Here is hoping that it will last a bit longer (ok, a lot longer).
