Shura country 2

Ashura's Castle in Shura Country

Shura Country is one of the many countries visited by the main characters of Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle. It is the past of Shara Country.


After the sky of Shara splits a beam of light stretches from each statue to the sky. Syaoran and Sakura see Mokona flying overhead. Mokona says there is no feather in this world (Shara), but there is one there. It transports Syaoran, Sakura, Fay, and Kurogane to Shura, Shara's past.

Syaoran and Sakura wake up to see Ashura on a horse, looming above them. They have landed in the middle of a battlefield, where Clan Ashura fights against Clan Yasha.

Fay and Kurogane fall in Clan Yasha's kingdom, the country of Yama, half a year before Sakura, Syaoran and Mokona. Since Mokona wasn't there, they couldn't understand each other. Because Kurogane's language is similar to the one spoken by the clan, he can speak to them while Fay pretends to be shy. They both end up in Clan Yasha's army, becoming their best generals when Syaoran arrives to the Castle of the Moon, when they are welcomed by the Clan Ashura.

It's said that anyone who conquers the Moon Castle will be granted the most profound wish. This is the reason why Ashura's and Yasha's clans have been fighting for such a long time each night until the moon reaches its zenith. Ashura's clan comes from Shura Country, while Yasha's Clan comes from another, unknown to Ashura's Clan. Sakura's feather seems to be in the Moon Castle, which is why Syaoran decides to go along with King Ashura to chase his wish. There he'll have to fight against Kurogane and Fye who don't seem to be the ones he knows.

Shura Moon Castle

At last, King Ashura defeats King Yasha, his mortal enemy as well as his loved one, who was actually already dead because of an illness. The one before Ashura was nothing else than his spirit, who thanks to Sakura's feather was still fighting. Once the Moon Castle is conquered, Ashura makes his wish: to resurrect Yasha, but this is an impossible wish for the castle. Thus, thanks to Syaoran and Sakura's words about Shara's deities, he makes a last wish to Yuko: to turn him and Yasha into gods for the generations to come, and thus being able to remember that there are unreachable things even for the gods. This wish will be paid when everyone go back to Shara with both kings' swords. Afterward, he dies in the Moon Castle and everyone goes back (Kurogane and Fye reveal that they decided to fight Syaoran as a part of their training) to what is actually Shura's future, Shara Country, even though some last words of Syaoran will mark a change in history, to bury both bodies of the dead kings together. The group parts to their next destination which is Piffle World.
