After the demise of the demon king, the resulting power vacuum has broken the balance of the world. Eager to claim this power for themselves, self-proclaimed demon kings from various worlds assemble in the New Principality of Lithia to fight for it. Among them, master swordsman Soujirou Yagyuu seeks to take this coveted position for himself. Joined by Tooi Kagizume no Yuno, a young girl he saved from an army of golems that destroyed her city, Soujirou enters Lithia to battle his way to the title.

At the same time, the leaders of the Aureatia Kingdom seek to destabilize Lithia by launching bandits after the convoys of merchandise transiting through the principality. Enraged, Imashime of Taren, the founder of Lithia and defector from Aureatia, sends vicious thief Kasasagi no Dakai to investigate the origin of these attacks. With war on the brink of eruption, no one can predict what influence the contenders for the demon king's throne will have on the coming conflict.

Ishura is set in a world where the "True Demon King" was defeated. This common enemy united everyone for a common cause, but now that the Demon King is gone, nothing is keeping all the battle crazed-warriors and other dangerous creatures preoccupied. To maintain peace, Aureatia, the ...

Mixed Feelings
Ishura has this sprawling cast of characters, and is the rare example of a show that could have done with a little more exposition, to be honest. Despite dedicating a good half of the series just on establishing our characters, by the time the show was actually starting to move forwards in the back half of the season, I have to be honest I was pretty lost. They kept talking about some tournament or something, but in the end it ends up being more a political anime... I think? Just, keeping track of who was who, who was on whose side, what the motivations of ...

“Ishura” is what happens when surface level writing meets a pretty solid idea.

This show is the perfect example of 2 things:
1. False advertising
2. Having lots of plot and almost no story at all.

Let’s start with the first point.

The first episode in any show is one of, and according to some, the most important. It has a simple, yet important function: it must aim to capture the audience's attention, establish characters, locations, set the tone for the rest of the series and, if the show will have an overarching plot, present the main goal for the main character.
