Nurarihyon no Mago Sennen Makyou episode 07

Woohoo, man I love this anime. The characters are really good, but best of all.. This story that never seems to get boring, there’s always something new that makes you want to keep watching.

So Rikuo has finally started his training, training that will further develop his Youkai powers and help him defeat his enemies. This all just confirmed my earlier speculation. Rikuo was, atleast in the first season, this powerful Youkai with no equal. But now he’s one of the weaker Youkai on the training grounds.

Needless to say that Rikuo really needs to get stronger. Right now he’s discovering and training his fear, an ability that all Youkai have, unique for each individual Youkai.

At first Rikuo used his Meikyō Shisui. It’s Rikuo’s hatsu technique. It makes the enemy unaware of his presence, even if they were looking straight at him; this allows him shift himself towards the enemy’s blind spot. If Rikuo’s fear is cut, the technique is dissipated.

But that didn’t help him much, his enemy, who knew and hates Rikuo’s grandfather, easily cut through his fear. It’s was a life or death situation, forcing Rikou to look deep inside of himself, making him remember all the things his grandfather once said to him.

Rikuo remembered. He remembered his grandfather’s secret move, the Kyōka Suigetsu (which loosely translated means: Mirror Flower, Water Moon). It’s Rikuo’s hyoui technique. It distorts an enemy’s perception of him by creating an illusion akin to an afterimage. Those under the influence of the technique can be easily outmaneuvered by the one using it.

His enemies, after using this technique, got intimidated and instantly realized that Rikuo is quickly becoming a serious threat. They wanted to dispose of him right away before it was too late, but Rikuo’s allies came to his aid right on time. The enemies left after realizing that they were seriously outnumbered.

This was a serious wake up call for Rikuo,  making it clear to him that he needs to get his act together and start training even harder. Will Rikuo be strong enough? Will he be on time to save his friends? Only time will tell at this point.
