SynopsisNatsume Tomoharu is a normal high-school student in every way with one exception: he's being followed by the ghost of his best friend, Misao.
After moving into his brother's old house, Tomoharu expects to continue living his normal life but is one day left with a mysterious and locked briefcase without any instruction. At first he plans to leave it in storage; however, his house is soon invaded by multiple groups of people after the briefcase. Although still not knowing the purpose of the briefcase, Tomoharu and Misao attempt to escape with it.
From there on, Tomoharu tries to learn the secrets behind the briefcase, the connections between it and Misao, and why it has the power to change the world.

Characters & Voice Actors
The storyline of "Asura Cryin' " happens to be one that has a lot of detail and a lot of planning to it. However, it is one of those storylines that as good as it might be, was definatly not executed to the best ability. On top of this, there are a few things that one should know before they watch the anime.
One of the things that is problematic is that the storyling does not flow well, there are constant flashbacks, and important details that help the anime to run are revealed at intervals that are not always the best time for them to come into play.
Another thing is some of the humor that is crammed into the storyline. While some of the humor is actually funny, some of it is not that funny, or it happens to be put in at the wrong time, or the humor is not needed for the story to run along. Some of the humor is sex related.
Another thing is, "Asura Cryin' " is not really about the occult, and not really about the church. It is really a fantasy version of the two, where magic, demons, and mechas exist. Yes, I said mecha... technollogy actually plays a big role in this, which was not something I was expecting. But the way they work together is a nice asspect, however, not exactly executed to the best ability.
I may be the only one, but I was in a way disturbed that two of the male characters had a bang of hair that was longer then the rest of their hair, like double the length, if not more. The art work, which is beuatiful, had been given a down trodding by such things as this that just don't seem in place, or they have a wierd effect.
The sound on this is supreme. The opening and ending is beuatifully done, not to mention that the voice actors are fairly good. The sound effects also work into it well.
Another strong point in "Asura Cryin' " is the numbers of different characters that are within the work, and the depth that has gone into them. Problem is, we only get a glimpse of them overall.
I had to say I enjoyied the anime for it's relativly neat ideas and concepts here, though I was disapointed by the way the storyline was executed, it seemed sporadic and disconjealed.
This Anime is definatly not going to be for everyone. As stated above, it will have it's problems. But if one overlooks, or is even forewarned about the storylines... ddity... they might be able to get through it. read more
Ok, getting straight into it:
I always watch something to the end no matter what although i'm seriously reconsidering that ultimatum after this.
Half the time you don't have a flippin' clue as to whats actually going on- no, more than half the time. Every episode, It'll change scene or introduce new unexplained characters who instantly merge themselves into the story with all the sensitivity of a blunt axe swinging down onto a solid block of steel. I suppose if you were to watch it again and again, you may just glimpse the actual plot that does its best to stay away from its rightful position. therefore, 2. 1 is reserved for no-plot anime.
Its not great but its not bad either. There are some bits where I would question whether the artist was feeling alright because the proportions are a little off. Its colourful, which boosts its rating and there's some effort done on the 'robot' things. The artwork is pretty much 'Meh' and gets a middle mark.
Sound is good. Sound showcases the seiyuu's talent and rather nice BGM. There's a BOOM when an explosion occurs, a brrrooOOMM when a motorbike moves and even some hydrauliky sounds when the robots move. Its good. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing that makes it exceptional.
Dear Lord, please throttle them now. It gets as high as 3 because there are some ok characters in it. And by ok, I mean slightly amusing. But the rest, like the idiot main character and everyone that calls him by his full name more than once, are abysmal. Their personalities are messed up, they have such bad decision making and negotiating skills like: "be our POW or die from the 50 bagillion guns pointed at you by year older high school students" The main then replies "That's soo unfair! you're mean! *pouts*" Horrific.
Well aside from EVERYTHING else, the fight scenes are alright and the poor usage of comedy makes me feel so sympathetic that I give them the undeserving score of 4. I think i've laughed once during my time watching it, I could be mistaken; Its so hard to remember between the frowns and disgust that surface every few minutes. I would not watch this ever again and may delete it from my library. The second series will be ignored and I will watch Kobato by CLAMP instead.
Crap. Pigs spew. Grandma Dorris's hairy arse.
If you want to waste 260 hours of your 700,000+/- hour lifespan, then by all means, watch Asura Cryin'. Thank you for your time XD

Both Series has a Strange Girl that Control's the Robot while Asura Cryin has a Ghost Girl and Demon Bane has a Magic Girl which transform into a Book.
They Quite really Similar, A Girl which is the Core of the Robot while the Main Guy give's the Command.
Both main gets these OP machines and need to save the world from destruction. Both have a female where she needs to be present to operate the machine. Both contain romance, action and darker theme to the story/environment. They do both circle around "time"-manipulation also. So these two are very similar to each other.
