Ushio and Tora the best tag team

Background Information

Ushio and Tora is a completed shonen manga series with 33 volumes created by Kazuhiro Fujita.

Ushio's family maintains a temple in Japan, where 500 years ago, his samurai ancestor battled that same monster to a standstill and eventually trapped him against a rock using a cursed spear called the "Beast Spear", which grants strength, speed, and endurance to the wielder in exchange for his soul. Ushio accidentally unsealed the cave Tora was trapped in.

Initially, Ushio refuses to remove the spear pinning Tora down, but Tora's unsealed presence attracts various monsters to the temple. Ushio is forced to free Tora, who would like to eat Ushio, but dares not since Ushio keeps the spear close by.

The series focuses on their relationship, interspersed with battles against mythological foes, and with Tora's attempts to grapple with modern life, most of the manga is a series of fights with different Youkai or other creatures from Japanese legend.
It also has a very good anime adaptation with 2 seasons. (which covers the events of the manga)

Standing in the Battledome

Ushio and Tora is a fairly strong manga verse.
The meat of the verse, Ushio, Tora, and Hakumen no Mono are island level+ and hypersonic+ with some decent hax.
The rest of the verse range from building level to town level+. 
Due to their small number of top tiers and mediocre levels of speed, they tend to suffer compared to other verses.
They're still above the likes of ClaymoreHunter x Hunter, and Soul Eater.
