UPDATE

Thank you to everyone for participating! I hope you all have enjoyed writing the haikus as much as I had reading them all. (I was really excited to see some non-English ones too! Shout out to CR Portuguese staffer Stipervetz for helping to translate!)

And, without further ado, the winners!

KusuoSaiki
Homem e besta
Lutam lado a lado
Assim o mal cai

English translation:

Man and beast
Fight side by side
Destroying evil


Teddywolf
Tora, you monster
Modern humans aren't good eats
Here, have a burger



mitamaking
I once had a head
Then a bunch of demons came
Now I am headless


Congratulations everyone, and thanks to everyone that submitted their poems as well! I will be PMing the winners, so please keep an eye out on your inboxes, and keep watching Ushio and Tora!


Hello everyone and I hope you all have been enjoying the summer season so far! For those of you looking for a good old-fashioned demon butt-kicking series, look no further than Ushio and Tora!


Long ago, a ferocious monster terrorized the land, until a samurai, wielding the legendary “Beast Spear”, sealed him away. 500 years later, a middle school student named Ushio Aotsuki accidently uncovers the monster in a hidden cellar under his family’s temple. The unsealed monster and the spear attract many other supernatural creatures to the temple and Ushio is forced to release the monster in order to defeat them. Ushio names the monster “Tora” and unwillingly work together to battle other spirits and demons.

To keep with the spirit of the demons Ushio and Tora have to face, we're having a haiku contest where three winners can have the chance to win the Japanese single of the ending theme, HERO, by Sonar Pocket!


There's such a wide variety of characters in the show, from the fierce-yet-goofy Tora to the hot-headed Asako, that we want to read your guys' haikus on the characters from Ushio and Tora!

Excited yet? Well don't forget to read the rules!

RULES

-open to all users worldwide

-haiku must be your own original work; no stealing from others!

-must be themed on one of the characters from Ushio and Tora

-needs to follow haiku writing conventions: 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line, and 5 syllables in the last line

-entries must be posted in this thread to be judged

-submissions will be accepted until August 17, midnight Pacific Time

-only one submission per user will be considered for judging



Here's my example to get you guys started:

Tora he is big
wants to eat lots of humans
also real fluffy


(obviously poetry is not my strong suit, but you get the idea)

Lightning enshrouds all near by

Instead of humans
Tora begins to enjoy
Juicy hamburgers

I may be weaker
But with Tora at my side
I will always, rise.

Sealed away for years
An old spear was lodged within
And a grudge kept still

Her father shouts every night

Freed from the Beast Spear,
The demon has one desire:
TO EAT USHIO!

Hot-headed indeed.
But when Ushio is near,
Asako's smirk glows

I don't have a haiku, I just came to see if anyone made a "It's Snowing on Mt. Fuji" reference.

Huntin' down demons
You might call me "exorcist"
But that's too noble
