** In the manga, Asura is a pyrokinetic. In all the OVA series, despite being threatened and captured more or less continually, she uses her powers exactly once (not counting one in which she simply uses her spiritual energy to heal Kujaku). It makes the viewer wonder why does she go with the main chraracters everywhere if she can't fight her way out of a paper bag.
