THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------


Whoa, it's only 3 months but this show already felt a bit nostalgic. Glad to see it back and Tora's return is also quite pleasing. Seems like he remembers his past conversation with Mayuko too. Good start s far despite being somewhat of a slow pacing. It reflects back to the events and builds up for this season. Decent action as well, they sure aren't wasting time for getting straight into the fights :D

Can't wait to see what else this season has to offer.

OP


It's the same old Ushio to Tora again. Glad it's back though and I'm expecting this cour to be a lot better than the last 2 cours.

Nice first episode to the second season. They didn't screw around at all and got straight to the point. New OP and ED were nice as well.

The subs are out so I'm surprised only two people have commented on this so far.

They wasted no time getting right back into the action. Looks like Ushio and Tora are gonna have a lot on their hands since everyone except a few people lost their memories of them. Also a bit of ominous foreshadowing about the Beast Spear being shattered, and hopefully Mayuko won't have to actually sacrifice herself to create a new one.

Well, maybe some people alos lost interest after the second Ushio to Tora and dont give a crap about this one. Which would be a shame.
I still havent watched the first Ushio to Tora (the 90s one.........i should be ashamed of myself), but this season started nicely. It got straight to the point without a lot of crap and now the fight continues against Hakumen no Mono in the same quality as before.
Both, the OP and ED, were nice but for the OP i hoped for something as grand and badass like the first one, the guitar solo part at first seemed to go that route but the energy sadly wasnt there anymore. "Mazen na Kiken" stays the badass OP from UtT.

Whoa, can't forget that Hakumen no mono's eyes. That OP... lots of Tora revealed.
That's it, Ushio... Let it all out, even if you have to kiss Tora. LOL

It was a good start getting back into the story again, and looking forward to seeing how this will progress.

Ushio's VA changed right? But then the old one came right after Tora's entry!
Great episode, the story's getting serious but a little humor won't mind the course right?
The OP is lacking a punch, but will get used to!

Yeah it's back. So good to see.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

We're going straight to the final battle.
I think they will skip 1/3rd atleast of the manga in this adaptation.

That memory loss feels :'(

So they just shove Shinno and the western yokai back in just like that? What the hell?

You already cut them out. You don't really need to half-heartedly include them like this. Just make the eastern yokai do all their job instead should be enough.

They didn't waste anytime, and I'm pumped about this season.

No filler whatsoever. Right back into the action and story.

Damn son. This is what I'm talking about. Way to come back with a god damn BANG. I love that this episode hit the ground running and upped the ante significantly. Altering memories is a bitch move, Hakumen (but well done in this case).

And talk about Mayuko pulling a power move with her indirect Ushio confession to Asako. I need more.

How many chapters did they adapt this episode? I haven't read the manga, but it felt a bit rushed.

On a more positive note-- Ushio and Tora are back! Ready for another season of 90s shonen throwback :)

Happy with the return of the series. the new opening feels weird, but the ending is good.
I thought you were going to start with a chapter slice-of life and then start with action. But I still like this descision to start with the action that characterizes the series.

I'm kind of a sucker for shows that do the memory thing as cliche as they are. Its a cool dynamic when the characters once had allies that now have no reccolation of them whatsoever. I enjoyed this episode alot.

Problem I have with the episode is Asako's reactions through several times this episode.

When she asked "really" regarding if Ushio will like the embroidery.

Also, when Ushio wanted to walk her home she looked at him in a creepy fashion.

Also wtf was up with Asako and Ushio walking to her place? They were skipping, smiling and laughing in a weird fashion. Angry one moment then laughing it up like they are girlfriend and boyfriend.

The return of a great series! Singer of the new OP is the same of the previous episodes' OP! The scene of Ushio and Asako under the cherry blossoms was wonderful, pretty good start. Everyone forgot about Ushio! But I knew Tora didn't. His father and the monks became petrified, dafuq? Seems like everyone forgot about Tora too, Hakumen sent some Hiyo to eat the memories of them from everyone... Kirio is the new stepbrother of Mayuko, lol. Ushio finds out that Mayuko is a descendant of Mie Jing and so she was kidnapped by east and west Osas (with Asako) to forge a new Beast Spear! The animations were also pretty good, OSTs were fantastic. A great (re)start!

Probably because today is April Fools Day, and most of the anime that came out today were just pranks. If it wasn't for this site notifying me, I wouldn't have thought it was real enough to try.

When Asako asked Ushio who he was, I was waiting for Asako to say,"April Fools!"

Well anyways, a very good first episode. Everything was straight to the point. Also, the romance scene was pretty niceee.

This single episode covered 8 manga chapters. They need this pace to cover the whole final battle arc in this 13-episode final season.

Those screens are almost straight copy from manga. I would consider it as "fans service". But well, the manga author isn't really known for drawing people. He's better at drawing youkai and creepy things.

In manga, during that walk, there were a few more dialogues. They were chatting about their childhood memories, what happened in elementary schools, etc. That made the then memory loss even more sad. Anime skipped this.

Really liking the new OP.....Now I know that this season is going to be better than I thought

The moment that Ushio had with Asako in the first half was way too cute and now I honestly dont mind those two ending up together

But man the second half was really sad....I can't even imagine how it must feel to have everyone including the one you love forget and treat you like an outcast :(

That fight premonition has me worried but I feel like that happened because of this current event so hopefully the gang can fix this soon and lol at how they're JUST now realizing that Mayuko is a descendant descendant Jie Mei

Wow, they wasted no time into return to the action. I like the opening, but I liked the previous one more. The ending was fine.

Sucks the Hiyou made Ushio's loved ones and allies to forget him, but next chapter looks like we will see many action scenes, that's good.

Btw, that western youkai has the voice of Junichi Suwabe. That made the things much better.

Yep, straight to the point of no return. That OP sure is spoilerific.

I already figured they weren't gonna do it since it came before Tatatri Breaker, but they skipped The Western Bakemono War, and have just gone straight to the the West and East already being allies.

They also showed Resurrection of the Beast Horde in the OP, but I guess they'll have to tweak it a bit since it came before this in the manga. At least they're not leaving it out.

What's up with changing the order of the stories? I was all hyped up to see the Azafuse today, wtf.

Not only was this rushed af, I'm a lil upset they just totally cut all of Kirio's character development, especially after how many episodes he got last season. This season shoulda been 2 cour too. :/
I also feel sorry for anyone anime-only because the speed of this just made it come across as confusing, esp b/c all the skipped material made it seem like an episode had been missed out.

Man, this was the best way to start my weekend.

I mean Season 2 is going to be amazing, and just having finished the manga, if done right more tear's will be shed.
Also, I feel like that new OP spoils a bit much for my liking but that ED is pretty good.

At first I thought the VO changed but it's been sometime then he Jumped all over Tora and I knew this is going to be another great..no Amazing Season.

I could not miss that much the opportunity and watch this first episode of Ushio and Tora. As a start I find it very encouraging, but I have the feeling that the story will be treated equally seen in the first season. Needless to discuss this particular, I just hope that the animated adaptation does "regret" over the original story. Excellent designs, a little gnats acronyms, I preferred the previous ones.
