Ushio & Tora TV Plans Detailed

by AJ Adejare

Kazuhiro Fujita’s Ushio & Tora will come on July 3 as part of the Summer 2015 anime season.  Ushio & Tora adapts the manga of the same name that ran from 1990 to 1996 where a boy named Ushio Aotsuk frees Tora a tiger like monster, from the Beast Spear.  The two work together to combat the monsters and supernatural events that Ushio constantly encounters. The manga popular in its run in Weekly Shonen Jump (the same magazine for One Piece, Bleach, and Dragon Ball Z) printed over 30 million combined collection copies with two recent chapters published by Fujita to support the Tōhoku 2011 earthquake disaster victims.
