Animenewsnetwork - Want to raise the stakes of any situation? Set it on a plane! In this episode of Ushio & Tora, the pair fly the unfriendly skies to battle one nasty, airborne yokai. The episode is entertaining as usual, with the pair's goofy hijinks giving way to badass teamwork when it counts, but this routine still feels like a step back. Now that the episodic storyline of Ushio & Tora is giving way to a deeper, more interesting serialized epic, it's hard to imagine viewers will continue to be satisfied with weekly monsters and only minor developments to the plot.
