I'm now watching it in Chinese They tend to be more reliable even though they're lower in quality.

Nice that Rikuo finally learned the technique. So that's what that massive tattoo on grandpa's back is. Nice how they rolled through 3 seals before getting to Tsuchi-Gumo. The astonishment on Jozu's face was great. Like how the Tono showed up to show support for Rikuo. Hopefully they can take him down now. Tsurara's reaction was priceless.

Nope, Nurarihyon's tattoo is of different kind: it is a yakuza tattoo (for starters, he can't even use Matoi due to being a full Youkai while the technique requires you to have both human and youkai blood)

Is there a reason to require human blood? Or is it just a thing?

In short, Matoi makes up for lack of Fear that part-youkai have by letting the Youkai possess (like a demon) your human side and thus add his Fear to yours (I doubt Youkai can be possessed). This also has a nice consequence of having two kinds of Fear now thus he gains new abilities in Matoi form, depending on the Youkai with whom he is "fused".

Doesn't the technique allow Rikuo to "fuse" with multiple yokai at once? It looks like he has two different types of tatoo's on his back, or is it only the wing part?

Tattoo doesn't appear only during the Matoi but is always there and is updated whenever he does a Matoi with a new Youkai as a symbol of their trust and connection.

Another question crossed my mind.

Does the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons only consist of maximum 100 demons, or can he have a thousand followers and still call it that?

Rikuo finally returned from training.
Tsurara sure got herself in a serious mess.
Rikuo vs Tsuchi-Gumo was pretty interesting.

Yes, that was quite a fight. Now, it looks like the final battle.

Rikuo's Night Parade of a Hundred Demons looks like it has over 10,000 followers in that anime scene of the street.

I know that it was mention that when Rikuo equips the fear of someone, they both gain in power. However, right now, I am only seeing Rikuo using his powers. Will we also see the others who should be getting a power-up?

I know this is a shounen Anime, but did they really have to pull out all the tropes and make it even more obvious than before ? Team Rikou was really taking their merry time to decide how to fight Tsuchigumo- Half the fight was about that while the other half is the strong bromance between Rikou and Itaku, lets just say they were emitting something else other than Fear

The real surprise though was old man Nurarihyon showing up in the middle of the enemy's base and for the first time since the flashback arc that fox lost her cool

Damnit this is exciting stuff! A climax that feels like a climax!

Poor Tsurara - Rikuo's Fear is bi-curious.

Gotta love Tsuchi-G - just blow the bloody snot out of your nose, sew the head back together and take a nap before the main event. He's one of the best things about this season.

Made me lawl After watching 3-4 episodes, I reached the same conclusion, Tsuchigumo is definitely the highlight of the kyoto youkai...But grandpa isn't doing bad either, stepping right in to kill the boss like that :O Also seems like the plot thickens, smells like a conspiracy is at hand. Looking forward to next week~

ah but Amezou and Awashima were keeping Tsuchigumo's attention diverted - can't really call it busy when he's got so many arms.

I randomly watched episodes 19-20 and thought this series is absolutely amazing (the music in particular). I only read the first 20 or so chapters so I kinda have an idea how everything works, and quick trip to wiki helps me not get lost just following the series from here.

Question being is it worth going back to season 1 and watch that? Also Yuki-Onna <3. Though I think the Grandpa is still sexier than Rikuo ... the outcry for him to stay in his younger form from the comments during the episode was hilarious.

It depends on how much you like the series itself. Season 1 is no where as good as this in terms of direction, animation and writing. In fact, they tried to make the more medicore part of the manga more interesting but ended up doing the reverse. I'd say if you're not interested in finding out the difference between the two seasons then just read the manga up till where season 1 ends and pick up the anime from there.
