Kurama’s life started in the human world as a son of a gentle woman. He became a good son and competely abandoned his demon past for her.

Yet his life made a turn back towards his past when his mother got sick and he needed to find a better way to cure her. Since then, he became part of a group of thieves who stole the three artifacts of the ReiKai. It is also when he first met ReiKai’s newest detective.

Since then, Kurama’s life had been spent juggling between school and battle together with the Urameshi Team.

Yet, Kurama’s past is truly nothing compared to the battles he’s done with his newfound friends. In his life as a fox demon, Kurama had a reputation as the demon no one would dare encounter. He had the cunning qualities of a fox and the venom of a poisonous plant.

But Kurama has changed since then. His encounter with the humans had created a calm and gentler side to him. At some point however, this gentleness had caused him more trouble than he could imagine.

Kurama is smart and analytical, qualities that makes him deadly in the ring but sometimes poses as his weakness for he must study the opponent first before making a move. In his arsenal of weapons are his rose whip, rose petals, carnivorous demon plants and seeds that could sprout at his command.

Who is Pepesan?

20 something year-old otaku from the Philippines. I love making up articles around the topic of anime and would love to be a part of a local anime magazine and so I put up this blogzine to try to hone any writing skill I have. Also, the Pinoy anime community is in much need of help right now and so this is but a small contribution from me. Thank you for the support so far!
