Series Description: 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. Having come from his home in rural Japan for advanced training, he finds Tokyo a metropolis full of ghosts: spirits with unfinished business, haunts, revenants, spectres that only he can see. With his skeptical friend Manta, and samurai ghost ally 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? When he takes a shortcut through a cemetery, Manta Oyamada meets a strange kid with headphones -- surrounded by ghosts! The "kid" is teenage shaman Yoh Asakura. Tapping the supernatural swordfighting powers of samurai ghost Admidamaru, Yoh fights Bokuto no Ryu, a sword-wielding gang member. But an even more dangerous opponent is stalking Yoh and Manta -- a Chinese shaman who wants to make Amidamaru his own!
