One of my favorite anime shows!
3 April 2005 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I love anime.My favorite anime shows are Inuyasha,Rave Master and of course Shaman King.What I love about this anime is the storyline,the animation and the characters.

Storyline:Shaman King is about a 14-year-old shaman boy named Yoh who lives in a world where people and spirits can see and communicate with each other.He also makes friends with a boy named Morty who can see ghosts as well even if he's not a shaman.Yoh even finds a guardian ghost named Amidamaru,a great Japanease samurai who died at the age of 24.Being Yoh's new guardian ghost,Amidamaru travels with Yoh to fight other shamans and eventually,become the shaman king.Yoh even has help from his bossy,tough and rather terrifying fiancé and trainer,Ana who also happens to be a Spirit Medium who can summon and communicate with the dead with a necklace of beads no matter where in the world she is.As Yoh prepares for the shaman tournament (the biggest fight to determine the Shaman King),he makes some unexpected friends along the way and discovers the power he holds as a shaman.

Animation:The animation of this show is the best.The parts when the shamans use spirit unity or furioku are well sketched out which is why I love those parts.The expressions on the characters are priceless especially when the characters are depressed or angry and there's a shadow drawn over their eyes which viewers just can't help wondering about what will happen.The way the characters are drawn is also fantastic.Most of the wacky hair styles on the characters are good ways of remembering who's who because anyone who watches Shaman King could never forget such well drawn yet strange hair of each character.

Characters:Yoh just happens to be my favorite character on the show because of his easy-going,trusting and relaxed personality and how he can see the good in everyone even in most of his enemies.Ana's ways of torturing Yoh yet improving him are hilarious.It's really nice to see an anime girl with a whole lot of backbone and an appearance showing almost no fear.When she wasn't fighting with Yoh when he was up against a Dao-shi (someone who controls zombies with talisman),I was a bit disappointed in her but after she explained to Morty why she wasn't fighting was because she had faith in Yoh,it made me happy she was my favorite female on the show.Morty's interesting.I'd like to know and see more of his family but other than that,I like him because he's extremely loyal to his friends.Rio's awesome.At first,I thought he was going to be a freak but I saw he was funny and also helpful to Yoh.I also like how he defends Yoh's honor if someone insults Yoh.Len at first seemed like a psychopath who just wanted to destroy but after Yoh invited Len to his house,I saw Len was a decent character and liked how he became a friend of Yoh's.Trey's hilarious and I also like his dedication to nature.Lyserg at first was an okay character but after he joined the X-Laws (fighters for good but fight with no mercy)I hated him ever since and he left just because Yoh was defending someone who was evil from the X-Laws.The X-Laws are just annoying because they hide behind their fancy guns and whatnot and just blast people who they think are evil.All around,there really isn't a character I hate on this show.Altogether,I rate this show an 8/10.
