Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan

Light is radiant because there is darkness. And darkness is sublime because there is light. - Rikuo Nura

To be honest, I always love cartoon and I Love Anime. I've been watching this anime lately, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan and I fall in Love with this Anime. I think the hero is so cool and handsome. 

Rikuo Nura, The Hero of the story, is part human and a quarter yokai (demon). Because he is only a quarter yokai, Rikuo is able to turn into his yokai form only after sunset, when the moon is out; he turns back into his human self when the sun rises. He lives in a house full of spirits along with his yokai grandfather. Trying to escape his fate, he does good deeds in order to avoid becoming a yokai, despite his grandfather's wish that Rikuo succeed him as master of the Nura yokai clan. Rikuo is a different yokai because he helps humans. He eventually comes to terms with his demon blood and decides to take up the position of Young Head of the Nura house. Multiple factions aim to stop him or usurp his position, and he must gather friends and allies, a new Hyakki Yako under his banner of "Fear".

He is seemingly weak but very clever, easily manipulating one of the council members into isolating himself during a meeting and rationalizing against the dissolvement of the Gyuuki Group. Originally he couldn’t remember things he did as his “Night” form, but he later is able to see and communicate with him.
