Shonen Jump manga from Hiroshi Shiibashi about 1/4-demon boy

A poster has revealed that a television anime adaptation of Hiroshi Shiibashi's Nurarihyon no Mago manga has been green-lit. In the story, Rikuo Nura, a kid who is part human and a quarter yōkai (demon), lives in a house full of spirits along with his grandfather. Trying to escape his fate of acting like a demon, he does good deeds in order to avoid becoming one — despite his grandfather's wish to succeed him as master of the Nurari yōkai clan. 

The manga has been running in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since 2008, and the eighth compiled book volume will ship in Japan next month.
