Ushio and Tora is the classic ‘90s manga written and illustrated by Kazuhiro Fujita which follows the adventures of Ushio Aotsuki who finds himself constantly followed around by a large tiger-like supernatural monster known as Tora . This happened because Ushio, whose family look after a 500-year-old temple, accidentally released Tora’s spirit which had been walled up inside a cave after one of Ushio’s ancestors used the famed Beast Spear to defeat him.

Ushio didn’t really want to free Tora, especially as the first thing Tora said he wanted to do was to eat him, but his presence kept bringing all sorts of other monsters to the temple. Tora decides not to eat Ushio because he keeps the spear near by, but as the pair battle a few other monsters together, Ushio starts to notice Tora isn’t as evil as he first claimed to be.

Ushio is staying at the Kamaitachis' house when he sees Asako calling out Mayuko with a face full of fright. After asking a mirror elder, he comes to know that a mirror demon has kidnapped Mayuko inside the mirror.

After parting with the Kamaitachi siblings, Tora and Ushio head to their next destination Touno. On the way however they are attacked and separated by youkai who wish to kill Ushio. A conversation with a friendly kappa youkai reveals that the true reason is his mother and tells a story of Hakumen no Mono, a ruthless human and demon-killing youkai from China that retreated from a war with both factions long ago. Before he can finish with the truth about his mother, Ushio must flee from the attacking youkai once more. Elsewhere, Tora struggles to understand why he's changed so much when challenged by a fellow youkai past, Hitotsuki, one who is part of the group hunting Ushio.

As the Hiyō possess a bus in which Ushio is traveling to kill him, along with the rest of the passengers, Ushio must rely on the help of Akiba Nagare and Tora to stop them.

Another of the successors, Satoru Moritsuna, attacks Ushio, even as he is accompanied by Jun Moritsuna, Akiba Nagare and others. After determining that Satoru Moritsuna's head is possessed by the Hiyō, Ushio has to decide whether to enter Moritsuna's body to defeat the Hiyō, and risk himself turning into a monster, or not.

As Ushio turns into a monster, all the people he has met and saved gather to save him. Jie Mei gathers the five girls Ushio has strong bonds with - Asako, Mayuko, Reiko, Saya and Yū to save Ushio. They are to comb Ushio's hair using the comb that his mother gave him, to return Ushio back to his human self.

Once inside the cave, Ushio and Tora are carried over to the past by a time manipulating yōkai. There, they bear witness to how Hakumen no Mono first attacked the king and people of China, destroying the city and killing the parents of Jie Mei and Giryō.
