It is said that the spirit who stood at the helm of the night parade of a hundred demons was the supreme commander of all monsters and lord of Pandemonium, Nurarihyon. Young Rikuo comes from the bloodline of Nurarihyon and is one-quarter demon. Though he has the ability to communicate with, and command youkai he has no intention of succeeding his grandfather as head of the Nura clan, instead choosing to live a normal human life. However, with his family and aides all waiting for him to fully accept the succession and his ‘Night Rikuo’ alter-ego determined to become the next leader, can the young schoolboy fight his fate as a Nura to lead the night parade?
