Youkai with multiple Fears
Nocturnal bird youkai
Abe no Seimei
Just another good looking guy/girl
Other (please specify)
So we have heard a lot about Gitsune's child and how close it is to being born. The questions that remain are: Will Rikou and company be able to fix the seals and get to Gitsune in time to stop her form giving birth to the child? If the child is born, what kinda of strength will it have? Will Rikou be able to combat it? Any other predictions you have?
how can gitsune have kids,were is the father wtf is this lol
Moved to the thread about Kitsune's child.
Also I wonder if the baby is the one from hundred years ago or a new one. I place my bet on the one from hundred years ago. So no father needed.
Yeah, I have never understood the birth pretty well. In the flash back chapter, Gitsune was in need of a certain type of women (she/they gave a name to it). What did she need from them? Why did she eat those organs? etc
could someone enlighten me
Eating liver give more power for youkai. So for pregnant Kitsune eating more will give the baby more power. And the liver of human with supernatural trait give more effect. That's my interpretation...
Spoiler for those who haven't read ch 99

In chapter 100 there's black cloud surrounding Nijou castle. So I guess the Nue follow the myth accordingly. Now I'll wait whether Nue will be able to create a lightningbolt or not.
Also, kimo in Japanese usually refers to liver, but it can also used for the heart. Seeing the shape of the organ Yodo-done ate, I think it's more likely that the kimo refers to heart, not liver.
so the chances of the baby being born are quite high imo. Things always get worse before they get better, and I expect Nue to become the main villain after Rikuo defeats Kitsune. They'll probably have a fight, and Rikuo will barely defeat her the second before she gives birth or something. Than surprise plot twist, Nue is still born, wtf pwns Rikuo and flies off into the distance. Anyway there was also some antichrist paralleling going on with that Priest guy worshiping Kitsune and what not
Antichrist? But isn't Shoukera saw Kitsune as Maria, so instead of antichrist shouldn't it be the other way around?
Right now possibilities of what Nue is that I can think of :
1. ChimeraNue is a chimera of monkey, raccoon, tiger and snake. Have lightning alignment2. Youkai with multiple fearsThe grudges concentrated on the pond make youkai with multiple fears3. Nocturnal bird youkaiThe word nue (鵺) is created from 夜 (night) and 鳥 (bird), following it literally will become a night bird youkai. Example of nocturnal bird youkai is Yosuzume4. Abe no SeimeiThe mentioning of Ashiya Douman, Abe no Seimei's rival make the possibility of him as Nue, not to mention Abe no Seimei is a fox youkai son5. Just another good looking guy/girl
Any other predictions of what Nue is?
I place my bet on Nue is Abe no Seimei, or the previous Nue is Abe no Seimei. The reason is as stated above. Abe no Seimei is Ashiya Douman's rival, and with the Keikain family as descendant of Ashiya Douman, there's the possibility of Abe no Seimei turn into antagonist in this manga. And the myth following Abe no Seimei of his mother, Kuzunoha, who described as a fox youkai make connection with Nue as Hagoromo Gitsune's child.

I'm gonna throw in with the "other" option for a few reasons. I think the Nue will be a good looking character when he's in his human form (yes, I think it might have a human form and a youkai form), but its youkai form being one of the other options mentioned (not sure which I prefer yet). And I think the idea of multiple fears is a very interesting idea. I could see it having the ability and becoming a sort of "final boss" for the series or this arc at least.
I don't know how he's going to look but I predict he will pull a DBZ by killing his mother.
Is there any mother-killing in DBZ? Maybe you mean HxH?
Kitsune already gave birth to a Nue 1000 years ago, and in Ibaraki-douji flashback, when Nue killed Shuten-douji, we can see Kitsune still alive. So why should the present Nue kill Kitsune this time?
Unless Shiibashi want to make a same scene as HxH, I don't think it will happen.
