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…

actually this is a good manga but like the post before me it's look the author don't care about detail of the story and the end even make it worse. i think 1 maybe too low but i can't give this manga a good rating either

Load of Bullcrap

One because this series rating is way too high.
I can't believe how this mangaka got away with not only a crappy, predictable, corny hogwash of a plot but also with that slap in the face to the many cultures and religions out there.
Most people that liked it don't mind it either because they're japanese, yankees or otaku idiots. Seriously, the sheer disrespect, ignorance and condescencing approach this mangaka took to people like Native Americans, Nordics et al. their customs, speech, etc is just appalling. No, this guy didn't do his homework. He just took a big dump. But, hey, nevermind, just remember, "Eres Correcto!". Freakin' dumbass.

Such an amazing story that it seems as if it should go on forever... cute cute shamans and powerful friendship between them all... it's very SWEET <3 not to mention the humor throughout the whole thing

yet the thing that really bugs me is the ending.. just... didn't seem like it ended...very indefinite..

This is really entertaining, and Anna and Yohs realation ship is just hilarious, in all its a good manga, not outstanding in any way, but still a good read.

It's a great manga, it evolves beautifully - the first volume and the last have a huge difference in drawing style. The folklore introduced is well worked on, as well as clearly well researched; there's stuff from all around the world, gods, myths, creatures from imagination, everything. It's the ultimate shaman story, with family issues, blood and guts, and humanity. Only thing missing would be a good end. Oh well. Can't have it all.

Spoilers ahead

I really liked this manga , and i think its definately better than the anime. Theres a few things that really bothered me though :

It was way too long. Not much happened in 1 book.

The story became really predictible at the middle. The same things just keep happening ( they live , they die , they live again , they die again.. , or how they always end up beeing friends with their enemies )

And then theres no real end. I guess you cant really blame the author for it , i remember reading a few years ago that they had a petition going if they even should release the last book or not , so Im guessing they made the author stop for whatever reason.

In the end theres that special chapter that shows yohs and annas kid a few years later wich leaves a lot of questions unanswered and doesnt really make sense with the rest of the story since that would mean that they actually had sex in book 9 even though theyre only 13 years old , and during all that time that the shaman fight lasted , anna never showed any signs of beeing pregnant. And then theres the question , why would they actually leave their kid with tamao. It left me unsatisfied ~~

[edit by mod: SPOILERS AHEAD!]

hi there.

i have to say, this is a fantastic manga, some of the best arts, history is superb and very well done like anyone other.
so why i give 0.

simply, the last 4 best and inevitable fights DO NOT EXISTE, the author simply don't made.

the final, is in a midle of the 4th final figth, i don't want to tell anything of the last chapter cause i dont want to tell how it ends, but at least you will cry, and will hate with all your be this author.

so if you want to se some of the best manga, read until the nunber 32, and imagine the last fights...(man imagine the figth yoh vs silver, the author simply dont made.)

But fails so hard and comes over as extremely arrogant. Granted, most shounen manga have that quality... But Shaman King doesnt have one likable character at all :\
At least, I didnt like em.
The artwork is also supposed to be stylish; but I'm not impressed with it. It's a pretty relaxed style, but together with the manga it all feels more slack-ish... Like the main character, he's so uncaring about everything that happens, that you dont even care about it yourself.
Myeh, its not horrible though. I can read it; but I'd rather not.
