Ashura

Based on George Akiyama's "infamous" manga
The anime film Asura is created by Toei Animation, based on a classic manga by George Akiyama titled Ashura. The unrelentingly dark drama follows the struggles of a child during a famine in medieval Japan. His mother was so impoverished and starved, that she tried to eat Ashura at the beginning of the story. The movie premieres in Japan on September 29, 2012.
