The plot of Ushio and Tora
The series takes its plot from a well-know Japanese story of a boy named Ushio and his friend, a demon named Tora. Sooner or later, it had to be made into an animated series. The story’s main idea is to show how a powerful demon has become both a friend and a servant of a mischievous child. The boy is not that a typical character too: unlike most protagonists who are misunderstood by their peers and look for friendship with other entities, Ushio is a determined and active schoolboy who is not afraid of neither peers nor monsters. He found his demon in the basement of a shrine which served as a residence for the boy and his father. The demon asked Ushio to set him free and offered his help when dealing with other monsters. The boy freed his new friend whom he named Tora, for the resemblance with a tiger. Since that day, Ushio and Tora were always inseparable, and the demon was always the boy’s aid when it came to fighting monsters, for instance. Tora has also given Ushio a magical spear for gaining control over monsters. It might be that this item played some role in restraining Tora when the demon though of eating the boy.
