SHAMAN KINGby Hiroyuki Takei



Title Information

Have you ever heard of shamans?! They are individuals who are said to possess this mysterious ability to communicate with gods, spirits, and the dead by connecting this world and the other side…! It turns out that the transfer student who came to my class, Yoh Asakura, is actually one of those people!!

Boasting 41 million copies sold, Shaman King is a Japanese manga/anime series loved by all generations, including parents and their children who love reading the manga as well as watching the anime together. There are a large number of fans in their 20s to 40s that have been supporting Shaman King since its serialization started, and its fanbase is continuing to grow. The charming characters, including Yoh Asakura, fight alongside partners of their choosing―spirits wielding the characters' weapons. This makes a very dynamic scene on the screen, meshing well with themes such as RPGs, fantasy worlds, card games, survival games, etc. In 2020, Shaman King became number one in the world on Twitter. It continues to attract worldwide attention.
