Produced by MAPPA and based off Kazuhiro Fujita’s manga running in Shounen Sunday from 1990-1996. Crunchyroll describes the series as:

Long ago, a ferocious monster terrorized the land, until a samurai, wielding the legendary “Beast Spear”, sealed him away. 500 years later, a middle school student named Ushio Aotsuki accidentally uncovers the monster in a hidden cellar under his family’s temple. The unsealed monster and the spear attract many other supernatural creatures to the temple and Ushio is forced to release the monster in order to defeat them. Ushio names the monster “Tora” and they unwillingly work together to battle other spirits and demons.

We’ll make sure to bring you more updates on Spring simulcasts as they come.
