Ushio and Tora Returns to Anime Network Online This Spring

HOUSTON, April 20, 2016 - A few months ago, the epic shounen anime Ushio & Tora left us at the edge of our seats, wondering what was going to happen to our two heroes. Anime Network Online (ANO) is proud to announce that Ushio Aotsuki and Nagotobi-maru, aka Tora, are back for cour 3!

Ushio had no idea how much his life would change on the day he freed Tora, the youkai in his family shrine's basement. Bound by fate and the pull of the legendary Beast Spear, the unlikely pair found themselves defeating enemy after enemy until they found themselves in the crosshairs of the most powerful being of all, the demonic youkai, Hakumen no Mono. In the final chapter of the season, Ushio & Tora join forces with priests, scientists, and youkai alike to take down Hakumen before it consumes the world.

Ushio & Tora resumes airing on May 2nd. ANO subscribers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Latin America, Scandinavia, Netherlands, Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey will be able to stream new episodes every Monday at 10:30 AM EDT.
