Synopsis

In the world of Shaman King, extraordinary individuals called shamans exist who can commune with gods, spirits and ghosts. Every 500 years shamans from all over the world compete against each other in a tournament known as the Shaman Fight, to be crowned the next Shaman King -- the ruler of all creation who has the power to reshape the world as they see fit.

One night Manta Oyamada meets a boy named Yoh Asakura at a cemetery. Yoh is a transfer student at Shinra Private Academy and a shaman. Through a fateful encounter with a 600-year-old samurai ghost named Amidamaru, Yoh’s potential to become the Shaman King is revealed. On his journey to become the Shaman King, he comes across Tao Ren and numerous other rivals.

Two giant comets streak through the night sky signaling the start of the Shaman Fight and the wheels of fate begin to turn. Will Yoh reign victorious and take the throne as the next Shaman King?
