    Confused Questions & Answers Thread

    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
    thank you

    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.

    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.
    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.

    Re: Questions & Answers Thread

    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:TooryanseJinmen
    Form:HumanoidTortoise
    Weapon:ScissorArm
    Collection:Young female onlyMen women old young
    Method:Cut with scissorEat whole body
    Placement:Mant (inside)Carapace (outside)
    Usage:Power-upsShield
    Victim Condition:Dead but conscious, able to speakDead but conscious, able to speak
    Way to defeat:Slash with large oodachiPunch 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.

    There are many popular urban legends, many of them mentioned by the author himself. Check one of chapter discussion treads for more info.

    Quote Quote:

    These are basic summaries I think:

    1st novel:
    1. Nurarihyon and Yohime's wedding
    2. A story about Zen and another Yokai
    3. A story about some Yokai not from manga

    2nd novel:
    1. Nurarihyon and Yohime's family life
    2. Rikuo's days at Toono
    3. Don't remember...

    3rd Novel:
    1. Another Nurarihyon and Yohime's family life
    2. Some girl meets Schoolgirl Kitsune prior to Kyoto Arc
    3. A story of Kubinashi, loli Kejorou and her mother while they were humans

    A. Beside looking for the previous chapter, try google and wiki.

    Q. anyone know what the novel about?
    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.

    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.

    Re: Questions & Answers Thread

    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.
