Crunchyroll to Stream Ushio & Tora Season 2 Anime

posted on by Karen Ressler
Anime premiered last July; 2nd season begins April 1

Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream the third cours (quarter of the year) or second season of the Ushio & Tora anime as it airs in Japan. The series will premiere on April 1 at 10:30 a.m.

The stream will be available in the same territories as the first season: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America, Scandinavia, Netherlands, Middle East, North Africa, and Europe (excluding France and French speaking and Italy and Italian speaking countries).

The anime premiered last July, but its 39-episode run will be split into two seasons, with the first season reaching the 26th episode last December. The anime's final episode will coincide with the manga's final battle.

Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for home video in North America.

Ushio & Tora is based on Kazuhiro Fujita's supernatural battle manga. ADV Films released the 1992 original video anime project, and it describes the story:

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?

Satoshi Nishimura (Trigun, Hajime no Ippo) is directing the anime at Mappa (Rage of Bahamut: Genesis) and a relatively new company, studio Voln. Toshiki Inoue (Chaos;HEAd, Death Note, Ranma ½) and Fujita himself are in charge of the series scripts, and Tomoko Mori (guest character designer on Garo: Honoo no Kokuin, Juden Chan) is designing the characters.
