The Boy Who Dances With Ghosts (幽霊と踊る少年 Yūrei to Odoru Otoko) is the 1st episode of the 2021 reboot series of Shaman King.


When a woman gives birth to twins, one of them reveals to be the reincarnation of the shaman Asakura Hao, who attacks his family and escapes with a spirit. Thirteen years later, Oyamada Manta meets the shaman Asakura Yoh while walking across the graveyard. When wanting to expose his secret, Manta is instead beaten up by the delinquent Ryu who breaks the grave of the late samurai Amidamaru. Using the soul of Amidamaru to possess him, Yoh avenges Manta by defeating Ryu. In the aftermath, Yoh befriends Manta and requests Amidamaru to become his partner. Although Amidamaru is initially reluctant, he changes his mind when Yoh reveals he managed to repair his sword, Harusame, thanks to the spirit of his friend Mosuke. Meanwhile, another shaman is looking over Yoh and Amidamaru.
