It wasn’t just famous mangakas paying tribute to Kazuhiro Fujita’s legendary manga series. Several fans, including doujinshi illustrators, have also joined in with their own interpretative art pieces in commemoration.

Kazuhiro Fujita created manga Ushio to Tora in 1990 and the series ran till 1996. It received a 10-episode OVA released between 1992 and 1993, however, despite its huge popularity, no TV anime adaptation was ever made until now.
