About Ushio & Tora Blu-Ray
Ushio & Tora contains episodes 1-39.
Ushio always ignored his father's crazy tales about the temple where they live. All that talk of restless souls and vicious monsters are nothing more than stories, right? However, Ushio quickly rethinks his position when he discovers a locked basement with an actual demon pinned to the wall by a spear! The tiger-striped demon threatens to eat Ushio if he doesn't free him, so Ushio naturally chooses to ignore him. However, when the demon's presence starts to attract others, Ushio is forced to remove the spear to save himself. To make a bad situation even worse, freeing the demon, Tora, also bonds Ushio to the cursed Beast Spear, sending him on a journey where unspeakable dangers await. The battle is only beginning for these unlikely partners!

Good old-fashioned fun. Tora in particular is hysterical, especially the episodes where he's with Mayuko instead of Ushio. The story mixes adventure, humor, fantasy, and a touch of romance. The epic scope takes a while to become apparent, but I like how even minor characters tend to show up again later on, tying everything together.
The dub actors are good, but the translation they're working with feels a bit stiff in places, so I tend to prefer the sub. (Ushio calling someone "bro" never felt right, since he doesn't talk like that normally.)
Overall this is something that quickly became a favorite.
