    Ushio To Tora Looks Promising
    From the first episode without seeing the 90's version I thought it was good because it has MAPPA behind it, responsible for Garo,Rage, Punchline and Terror in Resonance. The art style seems fresh in my opinion and there seemed to be quite a lot of hype behind this series. It might be airing here a bit late but the first episode was released earlier today. Check it out if you are into this kind of ...

    First Impressions: Old School Cool
    *Disclaimer* Not a full review, but my impressions after viewing episode one.

    Based on a series from the early 90s, Ushio and Tora looks to be your standard supernatural buddy cop action comedy with a twist. Alright, maybe that's not entirely standard. Here's the high speed synopsis: Ushio, an athletic high school boy who lives in a shrine, discovers a demon trapped the basement. The monster is ...

    Naruto Meets Inuyasha
    TL;DR WATCH IT YOU WONT REGRET IT! Unless you dont like action shounens like Naruto or Bleach or Fairy Tale or Inuyasha, then you might just want to skip out on it.

    My Reasoning
    I know its a weird comparison but bear with me, a kid makes a pact with a monster to hunt demons with him using a spear that turns his soul also into a monster by drawing from his aura.(Nine Tails Demon) ...

    SOLD! If the the anime is close to the first episode, we have a winner on out hands.
    This was a great surprise. Everything I needed to know about the plot, was explained in the first episode. I am tired of watching first episodes, and then still wondering what the ******** the amine is about. I liked everything about it, with the exception of the music. I would describe the music as a retro 70"s techno J-POP. It was an effect that I disliked. I understand why it was done, ...

    Finally, the real story is told.
    This is a fantastic retelling of an even more amazing manga. It's intense, funny, heart-warming, interesting and insane. Watch it if you like awesome things. If this quality stays consistent and they stick to canon material, this should be a really fun anime.

  • I actually thoroughly enjoyed this
    Bringing back the old school vibe, I can see myself really getting into this anime. My first impression is very positive just from one episode. Let's start off by saying that the characters are great, and I can see myself having a good time getting into their crazy antics and humor. Animation is very fluid, and it has this presence that really suits the style of the anime, not to go to far, almost ...

    Quick youtube review of the first ep.
    I made a youtube video reviewing the first ep, This is basically what I said in it.

    Based on the Manga with the same name from the early 90’s this anime is about a teenaged boy named Ushio who through a bit of an accident breaks the seal on an ancient demon and is forced to team up with it to save his friends. Him and the demon hate each other and basically plan to turn on each other the ...

  • Really awesome actually.
    This is my impression after two episodes.

    So the animation is a bit...."rough" compared to some of the more polished popular anime's out there, but that honestly seems to fit the setting of this anime rather well.

    I was surprised how much I've enjoyed the first two episodes. The main character is tough, brave, and not a wimp, which is one of my favorite attributes of this anime so far. I'm ...

    Demon Slayer and Demon
    So this is a story about a somewhat average kid stumbling on an ancient Demon and Weapon and using them to fight an incoming hord of demons. Truthfully not the most original idea in an anime but still its a proven format and it was interesting. I grade shows like a teacher it stays at 100% until it does something wrong then I start subtracting points. So I'm not saying this is the best anime by ...

  • Finally something fresh
    "Fresh? Its ancient!" It's old but compared to the current bore show of what we've had for the past few years, and it's an awesome thing to see. One reviewer said the art style is dated, but putting a date on a constantly evolving art form is a bit weird. Looks great & different from the current generation of anime, story is classic shonen. Animation is fantastic. Will continue the review once ...
