Ushio and Tora

Jan 4, 2010

Ah....Ushio and Tora....brings back memories......ok enough....I feel like an old man. Ushio and Tora is a very good anime...though corny and sometimes childish this series is very humorous. Ushio and Tora fits all of the stereotypes of bad shonen anime: ugly character designs, lots of fighting, and a "save the female love interest" plot line. However, get past all of that and you have a genuinely funny ova series. If you get sick of shows like inuyasha that stretch on forever but somehow miraculously get nowhere...I highly recomend Ushio and tora. It is only 10 episodes long and its truely a great series. The plot goes something like this...

Ushio thinks his father's tale of an ancient ancestor impaling a demon on a temple altar stone with the legendary Beast Spear is nuts, but when he finds the monster in his own basement, Ushio has to take another look at the family legend!

 Fortunately, Ushio knows it's best to let sleeping dogs lie and leave captured demons where they are. Unfortunately, the release of the monster's evil energies begins to beckon other demons to Ushio's hometown! To save his friends and family from the invading spirits, Ushio is forced to release Tora from his captivity.

But will the cure prove to be worse than the curse? Will Ushio end his life a Tora-snack? Or will the Beast Spear keep Tora in line long enough to save the city? Ushio thinks his father's tale of an ancient ancestor impaling a demon on a temple altar stone with the legendary Beast Spear is nuts, but when he finds the monster in his own basement, Ushio has to take another look at the family legend!
