Yoh Asakura is a junior-high shaman: one of the gifted few who can speak to ghosts, talk to the spirits of nature, and contact the other world. Compared to home in rural Japan for advanced training, Tokyo is a metropolis full of ghosts: spirits with unfinished business, haunts, revenants, specters - all whom only he can see.
Together with friends Manta and Amidamaru, he faces challenges both real and ghostly... but who or what is the "Shaman King," and what shamans and spirits await him in the wide world outside Japan?
Story and art by Hiroyuki Takei.
