More on Asura: “Asura is based on a banned manga from the early 1970’s which revolves around a child cannibal in famine-wracked feudal Japan whose taste for human flesh has turned him into a demon.”
At first I was a little off-put by the type of animation employed in the film but its quickly sucks you in. Asura looks good.
