The Nura’s wives and the seasons they present.
Of course I can! :D
((I am so happy I was asked to draw something))
I wonder if I am the only one in the Nura Mago fandom who prefers Otome over Wakana. Don’t be mistaken, I like Wakana, it’s just that compare to her, I like Otome more. Because I got to see her inner character more thoroughly. Otome is one of the most selfless female character I have ever seen, knowing she would just be a burden, or so she thought, to her husband Rihan, she decided to leave on her own, even though they both loved each other dearly. Yet her soul could not rest in peace, she was being used, to kill her own husband, while ‘acting’ as their ‘non-existent daughter’, seeing her dearest died in front of her by her own hand, then lost her soul to the devil. I cry so much every time I read the part again. In the movie we also got to know how she died before that incident happened, yet another reason to be more heart-breaking.
The extra chapter really healed a huge part of my heart when I was reading the manga. I thought I would have had that ache in my heart forever every time I remembered Rihan and Otome if it hadn’t been for this extra. Finally they can be happy together, once again. I must say: Thank you Hiroshi-sensei. What you created is truly a masterpiece. ‘Nurarihyon a mago’, despite being a shounen manga, is one of the few manga which has the most beautiful love stories I have ever read. From the fateful love story between Nurarihyon and Youhime, to the sacrificing love of Rihan and Otome, and finally that loyal and protective love between Rikuo and Tsurara. I guess the love trait did pass down through the Nura generations after all, the men are all protective and hold the women as their dearest person in the world, and the Nura’s brides, even though not related by blood, they all share the same trait, loving their husbands dearly, and willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of their beloved. I truly love this manga from the bottom of my heart.
Nope, you are not alone in the fandom: I am pretty sure Otome is the more popular of the two wives.
All in all, a good explanation of why NuraMago OTP’s and such OTP’s ;)
