SummaryEditAfter the battle with Hagoromo Gitsune and the rebirth of Abe no Seimei. Rikuo found out the truth about the death of his father and the mysterious female child that stabbed him (who was revealed to be Yamabuki Otome reborned.) Rikuo, enraged and determined, decided to take the position of the third immediately to defeat Seimei.
The chapter starts with Rikuo going to the meeting to declare his seat as the 3rd leader of the Nura clan. Before he enters, he looked back on what happened that day. Gramps asked him is he's sure about it, he responded by saying yes because after all Hagoromo Gitsune is the leader of Kyōto Yokai. For betraying the beliefs of the Kyōto Yokai, claiming the title of the leader of the Hyakki Yakou, and for killing Rihan, his father and the ayakashi he loves, he shall never ever forgve Seimei. He then proceeded, asking Yura for a request.
The Nura clan went to the Keikan main house. Hidemoto the 13th and Nurarihyon talked and reminisced about old times and also came to the conclusion that Seimei will probably come back from hell a year after.
Rikuo's RequestEditYura and Rikuo went to Akifusa Keikain, Rikuo introduced himself, gave him what's left of the Nenekirimaru and asked him to build a blade that surpasses the strength of the Nenekirimaru in order to defeat Seimei. Hidemoto suddenly appears and says that he will also help Akifusa and teach him what he knows. Akifusa, touched and teary-eyed, asked if Rikuo will be fine if it's him with current his level of power in which Rikuo happily responded and thanked him.
Back at the Nura House, present time, Gramps declared that it is time for the Nura clan to commence an all-out resistance against the Nue. Rikuo will be the one who will take the lead and that is the decision the upper echelons of the Nura clan, present that day.
Rikuo, in his yokai form, declared as he succeed the position of the third, that he will not forgive anyone who bears enmity against humans. He will also not forgive anyone who does not follow the moral code of conduct that they must be a yokai who shall never lose fear even in the face of defeat against other yokai. He shall turn the Nura clan into a gathering of yokai who shall take the way things roll in his Hyakki Yakou.
The chapter marks the end of the Kyōto Arc.
