Characters & Voice Actors List
Voice Actor: Yoko Hikasa
A young boy with the ability to see ghosts, who comes to Tokyo by himself in order to compete in the Shaman Fight. He’s a laid-back guy and with an “everything will work out” kind of mentality. He believes that anyone who can see ghosts cannot be a bad person and befriends his rivals. His guardian ghost is a 600-year-old samurai named Amidamaru.
Voice Actor: Katsuyuki Konishi
The spirit of a feared samurai once known as “The Fiend.” A master swordsman who created his own Amida-style swordsmanship, comprised of exceptionally powerful techniques. He’s stirred by Yoh’s warm and friendly character and decides to become his guardian ghost. He’s extremely loyal to Yoh and they share a strong bond. He wields a katana named Harusame, meaning “spring rain.”
Voice Actor: Megumi Hayashibara
Yoh’s fiancé and an itako, a traditional shaman, who is capable of summoning spirits freely. She has a cool and mysterious aura to her, but she’s actually so tough that no one wants to defy her. However, she also has a kind and sensitive side to her that she usually doesn’t show to others.
Voice Actor: Inuko Inuyama
A 7th grade boy who attends Shinra Private Academy. He becomes Yoh’s first human friend. After meeting Yoh, Manta becomes able to see ghosts but doesn’t develop any shaman abilities. Often getting dragged into trouble by Yoh and random ghosts, he has a tendency to make quips to whatever they say.
Voice Actor: Romi Paku
A son of the distinguished Tao family of shamans who have been active in the shadows of China’s history for 2,000 years. He is a highly skilled shaman and excellent fighter. He has a short temper and a strong sense of pride, but puts the work in to measure up to his high standards. He is easily identified by his spiked “tongari” hairstyle.
Voice Actor: Kousuke Takaguchi
Serving the Tao family since birth, he is a military commander who leads cavalry units into battle. He uses a kwan dao, a weapon resembling a halberd, and is skilled in close combat. At first glance, he is seemingly quiet and reserved, but he has intense human emotions and cares deeply for his master, Ren. He used to fight together with his beloved horse, Kokuto.
Voice Actor: Masahiko Tanaka
He always carries a wooden sword with him and rocks a very unflattering pompadour hairstyle. His street name is “Wooden Sword Ryu,” and he is a well-known gang leader. Together with his underlings, he is searching for his own “best place.” He has an unruly attitude but once he considers someone his friend, he is very kind and loyal.
Voice Actor: Wataru Takagi
A violent and cruel leader of a band of thieves who picked a fight with Amidamaru but was struck down. His desire to exact revenge on Amidamaru prevents him from passing on to the spirit realm, so he bides his time waiting for an opportunity to strike once again. He is rather skinny and his defining features are his green skin and long hair tied messily into a top-knot.
Voice Actor: Yuji Ueda
A shaman from Hokkaido who comes all the way to Tokyo to compete in the Shaman Fight. He’s a cheerful and fiery guy who always has a headband or towel wrapped around his forehead. He wants to become the next Shaman King to make a certain dream come true.
Voice Actor: Megumi Nakajima
A koropokkuru, an ice and earth spirit who is Horohoro’s partner. She is tiny in stature and has a butterbur leaf which she uses as an umbrella. She has the ability to freeze anything and uses her ice powers to fight. She is always with Horohoro and holds him near and dear.
Voice Actor: Michiko Neya
Ren’s older sister. She is a Daoshi who can reanimate corpses and control them to fight for her. From an early age, Jun has looked after Ren, acting as his teacher and trainer. She treats her guardian ghost as nothing more than a tool and uses her Jufu talisman to seal away the spirit’s consciousness, giving her complete control over him. She is very knowledgeable of the human body because of her ability to reanimate corpses.
Lee Pai Long
Voice Actor: Tooru Sakurai
Jun’s guardian ghost who is actually a reanimated corpse. When he was alive, he was a kung fu movie star skilled in the fighting style of Daodando, a combination of boxing, Muay Thai and karate.
