Throughout the ages, mankind has been afraid of monsters — the man standing on top of the monsters and leading the Hyakki Yakou — and people called him, the commander of the monsters — the master of the monsters, as the slippery ghost… The boy who lives in Ukiyoe Street, Nuliang Lusheng seems to be just an ordinary middle school student, but the ancient Japanese-style home he lives in is usually taken care of by monsters. Or to put it this way, Lu Sheng is actually the grandson of the monster slippery ghost who is standing at the apex of the monster, and he is also the successor of the three-generation head of the Nuliang group of the monster family that is currently in a vacant state.
However, Lu Sheng was not interested in these. His persistent hope can live as a human being. Although Lu Sheng inherited the blood of the slick ghost, his mother and grandmother are both humans. Because there is only a quarter of the blood of the monsters, he can only exert the power of the monsters at night, and he will lose it when he recovers into a human. Memories when I became a monster.
Perseveringly believe that one day Lu Sheng will inherit the third generation of monsters and think that Lu Sheng is very useless. The monsters who are trying to change the Nuliang group standing at the top of the monsters involve all the people living in Ukiyo Street into this chaos. The story begins. . A monster that has been feared by humans since ancient times, can Lu Sheng overcome this fear and stand on top of the monster?
Rikuo Nura, a part-youkai and part-human boy, grew up as the young master of the Nura Clan. Comprising youkai of all shapes and sizes, Rikuo treated the clan like family, however, he learned that he was the only one among his classmates who saw them in this light. To most, they were terrifying creatures of folklore who ate children and relished in bloodshed. Taking this to heart, he swore to live his life as a normal human.
Normalcy, however, is hard to come by for young Rikuo. Complicating his goal are his youkai attendant, who under the name Tsurara Oikawa, goes to school alongside him; the young onmyouji Yura Keikain; and his close friend Kiyotsugu, who idolizes youkai and hopes to prove their existence. To make matters worse, rival youkai and other entities threaten to harm those Rikuo holds dear.
If he wants to protect what’s important to him, Rikuo must acknowledge his ancestry—that he is the grandson of the legendary Nurarihyon—and transform at night into a youkai, becoming worthy of being the next leader of the Nura Clan.
