    It's really almost painful knowing how badly Ashura is eventually going to lose, when after all that setup of repeated failure, gruesome death, and tears of misery and anguish, I really, really want him/her/them to win. The poor guy/girl has been knocked down so many times and yet remains so persistent, you can't help but want him/her to win just this once.

    Ashura represents all of our futile struggles in our meaningless existences, slogging through monotony and humiliation for that one shot at ultimate glory/redemption/completion that we will never reach until death finally comes to claim us. Ashura IS the human condition; gender-confused, morally weak, desperate for some kind of answer as to why we have to put up with this shit. And without fail, he gets pantsed in high school by hair-brained doofus jocks like Kabuto Kouji and his big dumb robot. It's high time Ashura got him/herself some serious revenge-of-the-nerds action going with the aid of MECHANICAL BEAST BARON ASHURA.

    Go, Ashura! Wipe that stupid puckering yell off his ridiculously sideburned face!
