- Shaman King
Shaman King is about a boy with a shaman power, Yoh
Asakura, who wanted to become a king of shaman.
Yoh Asakura might look like a layback Junior High School kid. However, he is a
shaman with a special ability to communicate with all the souls and spirits
and possess them into his body! Yoh came to Funbari, Tokyo to make friends
with all of the powerful ghosts and to become the best Shaman ever.
Asakura Yoh is a shaman, a person who communicates with ghosts. He enters
the Shaman Fight, for whoever wins the tournament gets to commune with the
Great Spirit, God . . . that and his fiance Anna wants to be the wife of the
Shaman King. Helping him are his friends Manta, Horo Horo, Ryu, and his
samurai ghost partner, Amidamaru.
Once every 500 years, there's an event called the Shaman
Fight, and whoever wins becomes the Shaman King and can use the most powerful
spirits ever. Asakura Yoh comes to Tokyo to train and become the Shaman King.
Accompanied by many friends, he defeats many enemies along and the way, and
gets more friends.
Yoh is a young shaman, one who can see and communicate with
spirits. Shaman's also have another power, the ability to unify with spirits
and use the spirit's fighting skills. Yoh is training to become the Shaman
King, strongest among all Shamans, a title won by winning the Grand Tournament
that takes place every 500 years. Helping him are his best friend Morty, a
short kid who can also see ghosts, Amidamaru, an old samurai and his spirit
partner, and his fiancÚ Ana, a spirit medium and his trainer. However,
another Shaman family is trying to keep Yoh out of the tournament. Along the
way he meets a bunch of other misfit ghosts and wannabe Shamans.
