Ushio & Tora DVD
About Ushio & Tora DVD
Ushio & Tora DVD contains episodes 1-39 of the anime directed by Satoshi Nishimura.
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!

Ratings & Reviews
Oh, wow. Were to even begin? I went into this expecting to find a Bleach/Naruto blend of shounen anime. Constant fighting and ridiculous shenanigans. Did it deliver that in spades? Beyond a shadow of a doubt.
It's what else it did that surprised me. It's been a while since a shounen surprised me. After the first few episodes (setting up the rules and roles within the universe) it grew into something more. I found myself near the point of tears, and then just moments later laughing.
Ushio and Tora are such a unique pairing within anime it helps them create a special place in shounen. I haven't found the same dynamic in any other anime I've ever seen... Along with them, Ushio and Tora also cultivate interesting friendships with a bevy of other characters that is not only heartfelt, but also a little tragic at points.
Over all, this is my unexpected great buy of the year.
