Description
Yoh Asakura is a shaman--one of the gifted few who, thanks to training or natural talent, can channel spirits that most people can't even see. With the help of his fiancée, Anna, Yoh is in training for the ultimate shaman sports event: the "Shaman Fight in Tokyo," the once-every-500-years tournament to see who can shape humanity's future and become the Shaman King. But unfortunately for Yoh, every shaman in the world is competing for the same prize…

Remember this. If you ever want a way to say "I'm done, forget my fans", put the main villain in a princess dress on the last page of a cliffhanger ending. They'll love it.

This Manga is one of my all time favorite because all the characters are really interesting. each one is unique and the story is good. What really hooks me in this Manga is the relationship of Yoh and Anna and the value it always instill throughout the whole series: TRUST. I'm just glad that after 10yrs of its serialization Hiroyuki Takei decided atlast to give it 's true ending which of course, us fans, have been waiting for this past years.

I'm definitely giving it a 10. ^_^v whatever the outcome of its ending is.

I thought this series was really well done and it was definitely one of the series that i enjoyed, but with the current ending my rating dropped down to 6.5 cause i hated it so much.

But now i have heard rumors (and some with citations) about there being at least one other volume to give it a "true" ending. When i heard that i bumped it up to 8, but the ending will have to meet up with my expectations in order to get its rating back up to my top 5.

Till then i patiently wait ^.^

First time preferred the anime ending over the manga, usually manga continue on and leave u with a well thought of ending, but shit wat were people thinking losing interest, if i was in japan at that time, would have started a Re start Riot, and kept emaling them..

I really liked much of the start of the series. It isn't the most original series ever, but the fights are interesting and there are some cool characters, I really liked Hao, Yoh and Anna, However, once it descended to the tournaments the series went downhill. Fast. Which is why it became so unpopular towards the end. A pity, cause this series could have easily been better than Naruto or One Piece.

The best

This manga was the BEST manga i have ever read (i read hundreds xD) in my point of view Yoh+Anna had the best personalities and the best eyes xD...
Some of the fight scenes were a bit long but the relationship between the characters and the story are great (all the characters)

Yes it isnt the most original, but the character's personalities and the way the author made the characters react to situations was pleasing
and the artwork towards the end is really nice.

Anna had the coolest personality ever
Yoh was just plain awesome (Hao waz too)
Together they are just amazing
They are opposites, but so alike

Note: Volumes 19+20 are nice for romance fans
the best romance ever created

I am a major shounen/romance/fantasy/adventure/action/supernatural fan but this series had it all

Spoiler (highlight to view)
the only reason it had a horrible ending cuz the popularity in shaman king had declined or sumthing (look it up on wikipedia)

"In November of 2004, Shaman King was canceled by Weekly Shonen Jump. Shaman King was let go due to declining popularity in Jump's fan polls (indicated by their willingness to release the final completed manga volume (Vol. 32) if there was a great enough fan response).[1] This cancellation was untimely given that the series was nearing its end.[2] Release of the final volume had been suspended indefinitely, but was released in spring of 2006.[3]

Volume 32 ends with Yoh going to sleep to prepare for the final battle with Hao; the final page is viewed as Manta's dream, which features Hao as a princess with Yoh and his friends on their way to rescue "her". The reason for that is because Anna was speaking to Manta as if Hao was the person in need of rescue. The page contains the words "Owari" ("The End") and next to that, in front of Horohoro's sword, is a mandarin orange, also called "mikan" which is the Japanese word for "incomplete"."
(from wikipedia)

so the author had to finish the whole series but it didnt turn out well

i wish the popularity hadnt dropped so the ending wouldve been better

other than the ending i luv the series
