Revision as of 09:23, September 19, 2011

Shaman King (シャーマンキング Shāman Kingu) is a shonen manga created by Hiroyuki Takei which was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1998 to 2004, when it was abruptly cancelled. It has also been adapted into a 64 episode series produced by Xebec which ran on TV Tokyo from 2001-2002.

Overview

In the world of Shaman King, people with the ability to communicate and fight with spirits are collectively known as Shamans. The series is centered around Asakura Yoh, a laid-back, easygoing character who is heir to the powerful shamanic Asakura family, as he enters the Shaman Tournament, a semimillennial event that draws shamans from around the world to compete for the chance to become the Shaman King and the wielder of the omnipotent Great Spirit. In the process, Yoh befriends and makes rivals of other characters, and gradually learns of the true nature of the Shaman Tournament, and his connection to Asakura Hao, the favourite to win.

Anime Series

In 2001, Shaman King was made into an anime series by Xebec. In total, it ran for 64 episodes before ending, with 3 specials also produced. The anime series, while originally faithful to the manga, eventually deviated from the storyline as the manga was still being serialized. As a result, the later episodes are completely unrelated to the manga, with an separate and definite conclusion created for the series. The anime series has been translated into several languages including French, Deutsch, Polish, Danish, Dutch, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, Romanian, Cantonese, Greek, Czech, Hungarian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Latin. The Latin, Spanish, Greek, and Brazilian openings basically have the same intro as the Japanese one but their theme is different. The series has also been translated into Italian. The Italian and Romanian versions are very rare.
