PostSubject: Shaman King (anime cartoon serial)   Fri Jun 29, 2007 11:06 am


Both an anime series and a manga series by Hiroyuki Takei.

The manga has ended in Japan with 32 volumes in total.

The anime concluded its run with a total of 64 episodes and 3 specials. The Shaman King series started in Shueisha's Shonen Jump in Japan, eventually leading to the creation of an anime series, which was directed by Seiji Mizushima, co-produced by TV Tokyo, Nihon Ad Systems and Xebec and aired on TV Tokyo. This is a Shōnen anime. In North America, the manga is currently being printed in Viz Media's Shonen Jump.


The manga starts with Manta Oyamada (known s Mortimer "Morty"), a studious Japanese middle-school student, attempting a shortcut to get home after a late night of cram school. The shortcut comes in the form of a cemetery. It is here that Manta meets another boy named Yoh Asakura (who happens to be a shaman), but is frightened to discover that Yoh is surrounded by ghosts (it is at this moment that Manta learns that he can see ghosts). Ultimately, Yoh and Manta become best friends, and, over the next few months, Manta learns about the life of a shaman.

Yoh soon encounters Tao Ren, with whom he battles. Anna Kyoyama, Yoh's fiancée, soon enters the picture and prescribes a brutal training regimen, in order to prepare Yoh for the upcoming Shaman Tournament. The tournament is held once every 500 years and is a battle between competing shaman to choose a winner, who will be known as the Shaman King. This winner will gain the ability to reshape the world as he or she chooses, to make his or her dream come true. Thus begins the plot that will lead Yoh on a journey that will lead him to many friends and adventures.

Through a series of events and also through participation in the Shaman Tournament, Yoh meets and befriends numerous characters and changes their lives through friendship and authentic concern, which seems to be a pervasive theme throughout the series.






Evil character:
Hao/Zeke Asakura

He's actually not simply Yoh's twin; he was born 1000 years ago and back then he was already a mighty shaman and able to control the five elements (Fire, Water, Metal, Earth, Wood). With his powers he wanted to help people, but they in return feared him and called him a monster. That made Hao hate them and when he heard about the shaman fight he took part with the plan to rid the planet earth of all human beings, who were - in his eyes - nothing but parasites.

Obviously he didn't succeed thanks to the Asakura family who killed him when learning of his plans. But this wasn't the end of Hao who managed to be reborn after death with all his powers. This happened 500 years later but this time he was born as a member of the Patsheen, still holding onto his plan of winning the shaman fight which is why he stole the Spirit of Fire from the Patsheen. Again it was a member of the Asakura family who stopped him by klling him once more.

Another 500 years later Hao was finally reborn as Yoh's twin brother and of course the Asakuras attempted to kill him right away but the Spirit of Fire took him away. Even in this life it's still his goal to become Shaman King to fullfill his old goals, but on contrary to his dark ambitions he seems relaxed and almost friendly most of the time. He looks exactly like Yoh except for his longer hair. - Jeazard

I will have to look this one up...have yet to see it. The only anime I watch every week is Naruto.
I used to watch Full Metal Alchemist, InuYasha, Trinity Blood, and was a huge fan of the Dragonball series (including Z and GT)...and various other shows.

Yes, that is Trinity Blood...I really liked that show.
Enjoyed InuYasha but hate that they never ended the series and just left it hanging. At least with Full Metal Alchemist...they made a movie that ended the series. I also watched Samurai Champloo for a while. And was a fan of the Tenchi Muyo series..though haven't seen one of those in a long while.
