Every great duo is built upon a foundation of friendship, loyalty, camaraderie... and antagonism. The back-and-forth you get from a bickering pair only strengthens their bond as your two heroes put aside their differences and unite into a stronger whole. Ushio and Tora, based on Kazuhiro Fujita's classic 33-volume manga, blasts into the spotlight with ferocious demon-fighting action and the forging of a truly unlikely friendship.
Ushio Aotsuki is the son of a priest, and descended from a great hero who sealed away a fearsome demon with the equally fearsome Beast Spear. Wanting to know more about the legends, Ushio stumbles across the demon, living in the basement of their storage shed with the spear still buried in him! The demon--Tora--wants freedom, but his motives are less than pure:
The last thing Ushio wants is for Tora to go on a rampage, but as demons begin to swarm on Ushio's hometown, he'll need all the powers of the Beast Spear as well as Tora's knowledge and experience fighting demons to drive back the tide. All the while, these two want nothing more than to kill each other, but as they continue to fight back-to-back, we see that it's not their strength, but trust, respect, and eventually friendship that will crush the forces of darkness.
Intense action, creeping horror, and classic shonen gutsiness are all on display in Ushio and Tora, streaming every Friday at 7:30am PDT, only on Crunchyroll!
