The Aotsuki family has maintained a Buddhist temple for five hundred years, and middle-schooler Aotsuki Ushio’s stern father Shigure is the current priest. One day while cleaning his family’s storeroom, Ushio unwittingly discovers a long-hidden secret: the stories his father told him about a demon imprisoned by a magic spear were real! Having no choice but to remove the spear trapping the youkai named Tora, Ushio gets a new partner, whether he wants one or not.
Ushio to Tora is the story of a boy, his youkai sidekick, and an artifact of dark magic called the Beast Spear. But Tora’s not the only youkai up and about: a powerful older youkai, Hakumen no Mono, is awakening as well－and in order to avoid disaster, unlikely alliances will need to be formed.
