Shaman King tv Review

Every 500 years Shamans across the world prepare to fight in the Shaman Tournament. Shamans are people who not only can see ghosts, but can merge with them and fight to become the "Shaman King".

One such Shaman, a boy called Yoh, channels his ghost Amidamaru and enters the tournament. Along the way he meets new friends, enemies, and discovers something about his family he did not know.

Will Yoh channel the King of Spirits and become the Shaman King, or will the evil Hao rule the world?

Story & Characters

Story: The anime "shaman king" is the story of the trials of a young man named "yoh" who wishes to be the "shaman king" (an all powerful king) so that he can live life without worries. The Story starts out when a kid named manta is walking home and sees yoh in a graveyard relaxing with some spirits. waitaminute. spirits? In terror, he runs home and tries to figure out what he has seen. The next day in class, he tries to make his explains to his friends what has happened, but they think that he is just making up a ghost story. As he sits down for the starting of class, the instructor introduces a new student --- Yoh. This is a really good anime. if you have the time, make sure to get a hold of it, the humor, suspense, and mystery will grab hold of you and keep you waiting for more.....so if you do get a hold of this anime, make sure you have the ENTIRE series before you start, lol. (64 eps) .

Rating: 8


Art: The art in this anime was very well done. There weren't any items/characters that you didn't have an idea who or what it was. The characters were original, and smooth looking, with a good deal of time spent of accurately representing facial expressions, locations, and the like .

Rating: 9


Sound: to tell ya the truth, I don’t really remember much of the music, except for the occasional “pump-the-audience-up� song near the end of the series when a lot of action was going on. I really thought that song was cool, but If I can’t remember anything else, there either wasn’t anything else, or it didn’t merit mentioning .

Rating: 7


Overall, the presentation of “Shaman King� was a very good one. It caught my eye, (1 point) it kept my attention (2 points) and it even made me want to make a wall of it (100000000000000 points) So if you are looking for a good anime to keep your attention, and something, to just watch In the meantime while waiting for manga from Naruto or something, check this series out, it’ll definitely take some time to finish it (around 25-30 hours of anime for the whole season) and on top of that, it is enjoyable. GO GET IT NOW! .

Final Verdict

8.33 (good)

    One thing is definitely missing in the show: battle details.

    In duels, each warrior acts to draw out their most powerful moves and clash. Without much further details, the winner is declared and you are left with questions to why he is the winner (other than the fact that the author wanted him to win).

    Yes, this is an English forum, because most people probably can't understand Japanese. You probably shouldn't link such a bit picture here, it takes up more than half a page >_< oh bandwidth~

    Anyway, I thought Shaman King was quite a good anime, but what's with the ending? >_< I thought there'd be more seasons coming or something, but I haven't heard anything about it.......they can't just leave it like that~!
    I like your review though~ keep up the good work! ^^

    i love shaman king, it's my favorite anime, i know that there are more interesting animes and with better stories, but this have nice characters, nice story (at least it talks about something differentes, and the shaman theme it's really interesting), and it has a very nice manga.

    How the story evolves, also, is great

    And of course, in this appears my fav character HoroX2 XD

  17. Hotaru89 Mar 04, 2006
