Synopsis

Natsume 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.

Alright...I'm writing this for a reason. To hope people will read this and so that they won't waste their time watching this anime like I did. I'm still watching it actually, and I do intend to finish it because I don't normally like dropping too many animes. Although if this series had anymore than 13 episodes, I might of had to reconsider.

Story 5/10: Well...what sort of story is it really? There's little to no plot at all. The only thing I can see going on is that everyone wants the Asura Crying. First they're fighting, and the next their figuring out who to fight next read more

Story 6:

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 read more

Someone has to say it.

If you watch anime because you want to secretly be the protagonist and have all these beautiful girls at school covet you, sleep in your bed, let you touch their tits, giggle when you lift their skirts and get all blushing and innocent even though you have the intentions of a registered sex offender... get a life. I'm sick of stumbling on a harem anime when I was hoping for something with substance.

Also, this anime managed to screw the cliche pooch harder than any in recent memory.

There's the everyguy, shy and reserved Tomo. He has a ghost girl, Misao, following him 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.

Story:
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, read more
