Asura / アシュラ
Abandoned as an infant, Asura is forced to learn the means of surviving in the wild. In time, he learns to kill humans as well. Asura's lost soul is saved by a young girl, Wakasa. Through love, she tames Asura's beastly heart and teaches him the lessons of humanity.
Nevertheless, as Asura attempts to assimilate himself into village life, the poverty-stricken villagers are unwilling to accept the strange outsider and retaliate. Though he was taught kindness, love and empathy, it is jealousy and prejudice that drives him and Wakasa. A controversial masterpiece from the 1970s, Asura has been adapted into this hybrid animation feature film.
