Three years after an accident that nearly left him for dead, Tomoharu Natsume is about to start his high school life. Though with a ghost named Misao following him around, Tomoharu is far from being an average teenager. One day a strange woman appears and gives him a trunk that contains a tremendous power. This power is known as an Asura Machina - a being that draws its strength from a human sacrifice - and the sacrifice within Tomoharu's Asura is none other than Misao. As the bearer of such a power, Tomoharu immediately becomes the target of various groups, including the Divine Guards, who want his power for their own. When Tomoharu befriends a demon called Kanade and she is captured by the Divine Guards, he joins the Dark Society in order to save her. Now, Tomoharu will have to fight alongside the Dark Society while he tries to find a way to save Misao and bring her back to life.

Story 6/10 Asura Cryin is exciting from the start. It doesn't take long for things to really pick up. Since there are only 13 episodes per season, that's a good thing. It pulled me in immediately and it kept me watching. As interested as it kept me and as exciting as it could be, it's certainly not the best anime I've ever seen. The characters aren't much different from the usual but they are fine. They lack... read more
