Ushio to Tora
Airing Date: Jul 4, 2015
Producers: Sentai Filmworks, MAPPA, Studio VOLN
Genres: Comedy, Demons, Shounen, Supernatural
Ushio thinks that his father's talk of an ancient ancestor impaling a demon on a temple altar stone with the legendary Beast Spear is nuts, but when he finds the monster in his own basement, Ushio has to take another look at the family legend! To save his friends and family from the invading spirits, Ushio is forced to release Tora from his captivity. But will the creature prove to be worse than the curse?
Good production values, as expected of MAPPA. Old school style for an old manga, and the duo is entertaining, pretty good first episode.
I'd heard of this one and honestly I'm quite ashamed of not reading the manga, which has quite the story.
The interactions between Ushio and Tora were hilarious and I do hope that we will see more of them in the future. LOL
Definitely a "must watch" for me!
Looking forward to the next episode!
I was expecting a second episode like that, they cooperated to kill a monster and their interactions are fun.
Nice comedy too.
Another funny episode and Tora is as hilarious as ever with the fact that he can't openkly go against Ushio. XD
The fight was good, especially because the two of them started cooperating against that Stone Eater.
Now I kinda want to see what will happen next.
No more random monsters it seems, the story is getting more serious, Hyou VS Tora was pretty good, I am pretty sure Tora knows about his double that Hyou is hunting. At least it's confirmed that both are from China.
This is the best anime of the season by far. The retro art style does justice to this series.
I really hope that it becomes a hit so that they do more retro-style animations in the future.
For people that had read the manga:

Is it me or Tora is looking more and more like a Tsundere? LOL
Anyway, it was a fantastic episode and I really felt sorry for Hyou...
Still, I'm happy that the misunderstanding was cleared, even though I do wonder who killed Hyou's family...
This one was the best so far in my opinion.
Tora finally stoped thinking about eating humans a showed some good deed (even though he acted all tsundere about it...)
The fighting scene was pretty cool, especially the part where
Also, watch the episode until the very end. After the credits there's some very important info about the plot.
So Ushio's mother is still alive, since it's an old manga it would not be odd if they reveal that he is an hybrid, though I with such a father... The story with Tatsuya was kinda weak IMO.
With each episode it becomes better.
The "monster of the week" formula was finally abandoned and the plot progressed a lot.
We knew a lot about Ushio's father and a bit about what is coming.
They are moving to Asahikawa to know more about his mother.
Also, Tora showed that he's way more strong and unique than it seems.
The fight was cool and Ushio's father know some moves... XD

RIP Juurou .
For the first time Ushio failed to save someone. Considering Ushio's invitation, there is a chance for his siblings to become his companions.
Great anime. After watching anime i started reading manga.
