New heroine appear later
Other (state a name and why)
Youhime (Human) X Supreme Commander Nurarihyon (Youkai)
Yamabuki Otome (Youkai) X "Second" Commander Nura Rihan (1/2 Youkai) X Nura Wakana (Human)
??? X Nura Rikuo (1/4 Youkai)
This chart shows the Nura family tree that we know of currently. It also shows why Rikuo is only a 1/4 youkai. The tree goes back 400 years when the S.C. Nuraihyon was introduced to Youhime who had the power to heal and was the original owner of Kyouka Suigetsu. The "Second" commander makes a brief appearance in chapter 87, him and Rikuo mother remains a mystery. Then all the way to the present where we have Rikuo. A 13 year old struggling between judgments between his human and youkai form. He has to marry someday so that's why there's a ???.
Come her to discuss all about the Nura family and predict what has happened in the past and future. ^_^

Rikuo's mother's name is Nura Wakana. It's in chapter 21

Also, Wakana is 30 years old. Seeing Wakana have Rikuo around 17-18, will Rikuo follow his father's footstep and marry Tsurara and/or Yura when the girls still young?
If it depend on Rikou's youkai blood, then definitely. xD
We now know his father's name is Nura Rihan. I hope Shibashii will give us a flashback on how He and Wakana met
Well, maybe a little change: the grandson found his possible candidate to be his wife long before his father and grandfather, the question is which of all of them
The story still has a long way ahead (I want to believe) so it remains to be seen if any other woman is might to appear in his life
And my question is ...what was Rihan saw in Wakana for finally he married after being single for years and years (I sound like YukiOnna about what was so good about Youhime xD)
Pd. Kana's still in the game -_-
You're right, that won't do. Nurarihyon was a few hundreds years old when he marry Youhime who still in her teens, and Rihan is about 300 years old when he marry 16 years old Wakana, so I guess I have to take back my word for Rikuo following their footsteps...
Tsurara, Yura and Kana is the 3 heroines of the manga... So they're the candidates with highest possibility to hook up with Rikuo. Well, there's still the possibility that he won't be paired up with anyone even when the manga ended or a new heroine appear later in the story.
About Rihan and Wakana, hope there will be a back-story, when they met or how Rihan ended up with her. Because without it, there's a negative prejudice against Rihan. Did Rihan knew about the curse? Did he choose Wakana because she's human, so he'll be able to continue his family line? Was there another love interest? If it's not in the main story, I hope it will be in the extra, like Nurarihyon story in Next.

I don't get thisQuote:
What curse? Is that I'm missing or overlooked something?
Kitsune's curse so Nurarihyon and his descendants won't be able to conceive children with another youkai and only able to have offspring by crossbreed with human, that in turn make the youkai blood thinner.
Well, there's another possibility that Rihan didn't know about the curse and thought he can't have children, but then actually have Rikuo with Wakana. Or he never have any love interest before, and he married Wakana without knowing that he can't have children if he married a youkai instead.
I made a poll about who you think Rikuo will end up with.
I choose Tsurara, because she's cute and her circling eyes are charming. Her kimono looks is also a plus, because I don't like character that shows too much skin. And I love the interaction between her and Rikuo.
And I think it's only Rikuo who'll be able to make her happy.
She's so cute. And I think Rikuo/Tsurara is best couple!
I prefer Tsurara then Yura. Rikuo ending up with Yura would produce epic lulz in the story, but I think Rikuo x Tsurara would make the best couple. There's also a good chance that Rikuo will wait a while before settling down. His grandfather was at least 100 years old when he married Youhime, and his father was almost 400 years old when he married Wakano. Tsurara will still be alive by then. Then again, she could end up just like her grandmother's situation where a girl out of nowhere steals Rikuo's heart.
