The American streaming webite Hulu lists its premiere of the second season of the Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan (Nurarihyon no Mago) anime on July 3. According to the site, the first episode will be "available two hours after the Japanese" broadcast.
In the story, Rikuo Nura, a child 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 second season will be titled Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyō in Japan.
