Shortly after announcing their addition of Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan to the Shonen Jump imprint, Viz has already readied the simulcast of the fresh series, with the first episode popping up on their Viz Anime site today.
Directed by Junji Nishimura (Kyo kara Maoh!, Ranma ½) and based on Hiroshi Shiibashi’s Nurarihyon no Mago manga, Nura follows Rikuo Nura, a young man caught between the human and yokai worlds. Grandson of the supreme commander of the Nura clan, a powerful yokai consortium, Rikuo becomes something quite out of the ordinary when the night awakens the yokai blood within.
From today, episodes of Nura can be viewed at VIZAnime.com.
