An anime miniseries
about the misadventure
s of Ushio Aoski, your typical Japanese high school student
. Well, he would be typical
, if it weren't for a few things...
- He has a cat-like demon named Tora living with him, who often tries to eat Ushio with no success.
- Tora's demonic essence draws other, more malignant monsters to the area.
- Ushio must use the mystical Beast Spear that he carries around with him (he found Tora pinned to a rock in a cave under his home with the Spear at the beginning of the series) to fight off these monsters.
The show is, for the most part, a blend of action
(one could call it a dramedy
). It features lots of fight scenes
, and several comedic attempts on the part of Tora to adjust
to modern living.
