Very few people know Nekurenbo in person but everyone knows the story of the legendary monk; his voyage to the most weird and wonderful lands, his meeting with the master of the monkeys who gave him a magic wand, his quest for the sacred knowledge of the dragons, how he conquered King Bakeneko who wanted to eat him to secure his immortality, and how he sealed the demon within him so as to teach him good manners. It was this last incident that made him enter the monastery of the Golden Mountain where he could learn to channel this negative energy with the help of a mask made from the wood of a mythical oak tree.

Meelosh's guide on how to write card reviews:

The most important rule is to write the most obvious things that you can think of. NEVER break this rule! Once you remember this, you can continue reading the guide. So this is how your review should look like...

Write card name and it's stats (pretend that nobody knows that already)

* You need to calculate max power a card can have, because a lot of players don't know how to do it. Then, if the result is higher than 8 you MUST tell us how that is good, and if it's lower you absolutely HAVE to tell us that it is average or even bad
(don't forget to include Ambre);
* Repeat the process also for damage (but with Timber instead of Ambre);
* Write number of stars (it's REALLY important for some reason to write this). If it's higher than 3 then write how it will take too much space in your deck, and if equal or lower, write how it will not;
* Write the card's rarity, because majority of players are colorblind smiley And when you establish that, tell us how that exact rarity will influence the card's price;
* Write something about artwork, because everybody needs to know what you think about it smiley
* Write how the card is weak against SoA and/or SoB

And for the grand finale, pull some final score out of your &%# and tell us if we should use the card in our deck or not smiley

Please rate GREEN so that everybody can learn how to write awesome card reviews smiley

Didn't like this card.

Yes he can create 11 gap with fury, but is that something special for a 5* card in Fang Pi Clang? All 7 damage cards can create 11 life gap in that clan. And if you really want to create life gap, yopu should get 3* Zhu Tang. He creates 8 life gap in normal and 12 life gap with fury. So why should I get a 5* Nekurenbo instead of him?

Fang Pi Clang clan doesn't use creating life gap, they tries to finish opponent as soon as possible(In 1 or 2 rounds). That's why, this card's ability is not suitable with his clan. I would prefer Yoshida, Kuei, or 4* Fei and Heitachi. I don't need to get life point if I choose Fang Pi Clang, i need more damage. This clan is not Jungo.

It would be a very nice card if his ability was +2 Damage(or better -2 Opp Lİfe min 0). But right now, it's not useful enough.

7/10 is my rating for him.

Nekurenbo Review

Power 8
Damage 5
Ability +2 Life
Bonus Damage +2

Great base power of 8
Base damage is only 5 for a 5 star which isn't very good but add his bonus and ability you get a 7 damage card with 9 point life gap with fury 9 damage with 11 life gap
Artwork for this card is good

Competition is steep for a 5 star in Fang Pi Clang you can go for the 1 Hit KO with Kinjo or Lost hog, you can go the 8 power way with Hattori Kuei and Yoshida is a great power manipulator, Or you can get Tsubame with her awesome ability

Review 8/10
He's a pretty good card with solid stats and a good ability for creating a gap between you and your opp but their are better options Hattori with the same stats and a good Dr if he goes first Kuei 1 life gap smaller plus SOB Yoshida 1 life gap smaller but can battle 9 power cards on even terms 1 Hit KO opportunities with Kinjo and Lost Hog and don't forget about Tsubame you have way too many good options for Nekurenbo to be a must have.

Oh, I misread King Bakeneko (Ghost Cat), as King Bakaneko (Stupid Cat). Haha, very funny.

Why use Nekurenbo over Zhu Tang? Easy.

- Against SoA or SoB he makes a 7 life gap as opposed to Zhu Tang who only makes 4 in both cases.
- Less susceptible to DR since his ability isn't attached to his damage. E.g Against Uranus he still creates a 4 life gap as opposed to Zhu Tang who creates 2.
- Doesn't need fury to get the most out of him. Nekurenbo without fury makes a gap of 9. Zhu Tang makes a gap of 8.

So yeah, the only thing that makes him worse than Zhu Tang is that he makes 1 point less of a life gap when using fury. Ok, so he's a 5-star. You'd probably use Zhu Tang over him in just to save stars but in T2 there is absolutely no reason to use Zhu Tang over Nekurenbo. And hell, Fang Pi Clang isn't much an ELO clan anyways.

Nekurenbo is a combination of a few different fantasy characters.
-"the legendary monk; his voyage to the most weird and wonderful lands"--Xuanzang from "Journey to the West".
-"the monkeys......a magic wand, his quest......of the dragons"--Sun Wukong from "Journey to the West". (Sun Wukong obtained his magical staff from the Dragon King of the Eastern Seas.
-"he conquered King Bakeneko......and how he sealed the demon within him"--Naruto. (Naruto has the Nine Tail Fox Beast sealed within him)
-"he could learn to channel this negative energy with the help of a mask"--Ichigo from "Bleach". (Ichigo has to learn how to control his inner Hollow which manifest as a Hollow mask)

The Fang Pi Clang has ancient animal spirits as weapons:
Bear for Zinfrid
Cobra for Kuei
Monkey for Nekurenbo
Swallow for Tsubame..
Talk about natural alliance..

his bio makes me think he is the combination of Sun Wukong and Xuanzang in Journey to the West

ok everyone says this is a bad card but look at it this way: 8 power 5 damage +2 =7 damage so he can do a 2 hit ko and he is 8 power and also he is cheap plus 2 life (ability is ok) smiley
