The Beast Spear from Ushio and Tora is one fearsome weapon with one purpose, and one purpose alone, which is to slay youkai. That very spear was put on display last 25 September, near Shinjuku Station’s East Exit.
“Sealed” and suspended two meters up in the air, the 2 meter-long Beast Spear was put on display for 12 hours, from 9 am to 9 pm.
However, fans who missed this still get a chance to own their own replica Beast Spear as those who purchase the first volume Blu-ray and DVDs for Ushio and Tora will get a chance to win a 3/4 scale replica of the spear if they purchase it in certain stores such as Animate Akihabara, Gamers Akihabara, and others. These replica Beast Spears are the prizes for a lottery, and will also be on display in these selected stores, which will release Vol.1 of the anime on 30 September.
The full-size version of the spear, which was on display in Shinjuku, was also seen in a web video, which featured Ushio & Tora seiyuus, Tasuku Hatanaka (Ushio) and Kiyono Yasuno (Mayuko).
