Oh man! I literally just finished reading the manga! It must be on of the most underrated, under-read (at east in the US) Shonen manga of all time. It is soooo good, and I'm so happy that it's being adapted (hopefully all of it) into a new anime to bring in new readers.

The whole manga is scanlated, and I fully recommend it to everyone. The start is a bit slow, but it gets better and better.

Please japanese studios, keep adapting older high quality manga, and no this newer cliche bull shit.

Did you even read that manga..

I have, and it was great. Much better than new series like Naruto.
Did you read it? Because I see no purpose in your question.

All of these had reasons for adaptations a.k.a guaranteed profit and promotion, unlike this one.


Ushio + Tora was extremely popular in its day, it just never got a TV anime for whatever reason.

im pretty hyped for this, but am i the only one worried about the amount of chapters that the manga has?

i mean i haven't read the manga, but it has 313 chapters to adapt. I'm really hoping the studio doesn't do anything stupid like try to rush the adaption or something like that.

MAPPA+promising staff,definitely will be watching this.
