i want to ask some questions and i think it does not need specific thread for each one of them so i make a q&a thread
ok my questions are
i read in another site that toryanse is a rip-off from a character in devilman, jimen. how similar are they?
toryanse at least have exist from more than 15 years ago, why rihan let him roam free inside nura turf?
there is 100 sanmoto, is his hyakki yako consist of he and him only? is yosusume also a part of sanmoto?
is there anything stating if yosususume a spy send by sanmoto to shikoku or she was shikoku from the start and betray shikoku in the end?
i will appreciate if anyone answer my questions
Probably didn't notice him. As far as I understood, Toryanse was only attacking those who found themselves in wrong place in exactly wrong time.Originally Posted by Red Hannya
Seeing as a Clan does not need to have 100 members (Nura Clan has 10 000 members), I don't think every member is a Sanmoto.Originally Posted by Red Hannya
Yosuzume seems to be a subordinate as she called a part of Sanmoto "Sanmoto Gorouzaemon-sama", something I don't think she would say if she was one of Sanmoto's as well.
Unknown. Personally, I think she is a traitor rather then a spy.Originally Posted by Red Hannya
Q. i read in another site that toryanse is a rip-off from a character in devilman, jimen. how similar are they?
A. The similarity is they're collecting face. Although, I think it's easier to find their differences rather than similarities.
Name: Tooryanse Jinmen Form: Humanoid Tortoise Weapon: Scissor Arm Collection: Young female only Men women old young Method: Cut with scissor Eat whole body Placement: Mant (inside) Carapace (outside) Usage: Power-ups Shield Victim Condition: Dead but conscious, able to speak Dead but conscious, able to speak Way to defeat: Slash with large oodachi Punch through the face
It will be different story if the face is belong to Rikuo's acquintance, i.e. Kana, and to defeat him Rikuo has to punch through Kana's face to rip the enemy apart. So you can't say that Toryanse is a ripoff of Jinmen.
Q. toryanse at least have exist from more than 15 years ago, why rihan let him roam free inside nura turf?
A. To even meet Tooryanse there are requirements, like twilight time zone, hear the toryanse song (has to be children to hear/age limitation), and go into the shadow inside the shrine. So even if Rihan hear about the problem, he won't be able to meet Toryanse. And probably the leader before Shou'ei (Hihi) didn't really take it as problem.
Q. there is 100 sanmoto, is his hyakki yako consist of he and him only? is yosusume also a part of sanmoto?
A. There are the urban legend youkai members too, so I don't think so. Can't say anything about Yosuzume.
Q. is there anything stating if yosususume a spy send by sanmoto to shikoku or she was shikoku from the start and betray shikoku in the end?
A. Actually in the databook, she's a transfer student. So she's not originally part of Shikoku youkai. Also, the cloth around her face have fox-letter writings. No Shikoku youkai can read it, so no one know her real origin. There's still nothing about what's written there. I thought it has connection with Kitsune, but nothing mentioned about it at all in Kyoto arc.
thank you for the answers
toryanse thing make me think rihan quickly move when kubinaashi run amock and killing yokai but he is doing nothing when the victim human so i suspect that rihan more into yokai side

A. I never read the novel, but there's a brief summary from a blog of Nurarihyon no Mago fan who has read the novel. It's kinda similar to what Nayrael already posted but a little more detailed. I'll post it if you interested.
Please do ^_^Quote:
Are the light novels a worthy purchase?
If you're a rabid fan and able to read Japanese, it may worth it. Never heard of a novelized version get translated.
I haven't bought it yet, though.
I dont read japanese but I will in the future. But I would buy it if it had some decent colour pages and illustrations in it. So do the novels have many colour pages in them? Also does anyone know where to find the Nurarihyon no mago compilation book for sale?
For the color pages, I think it's 3 pages for each novel, and about 2-3 illust for each chapter.Quote:
