    The Best manga series ever!!!!!!!!

    Shaman King is the story of a young kid who meets a shaman in a graveyard and ends up becoming friends with him. This book, number 1, isn't so good, but once you get to book 5-7 you begin loving it. It is full of twists and turns and betrayals and friendships. I love it!!!!!!!

    Alright, but just not for me

    When I first bought Shaman King, I was expecting to really get into it and like it a lot. This, however, didn¿t happen. I thought it was alright, but definitely not the best manga that I have ever read. For one thing, I thought that it was kind of hard to get into. The artwork though was great and I really liked that aspect of it but the story as a whole, not a lot. Don¿t get me wrong, I¿m not trying to say that it was a total waste of time or horrible or anything, it just wasn¿t for me.

    Grade A Manga

    It was perfect for the first volume, it shows how Yoh (the main character) got his bodyguard/ghost Amidamaru and shows you a Shaman Fight, Yoh and Amidamaru VS. Ren and Bason.

    Great Book-Must read

    I'll admit it now, I'm not a manga fan. But something about Shaman King catches me. Maybe the comical humor. Or just maybe its the high-paced action. Whatever it is, it's a great book! Must read!!!

    Shaman King Rocks

    This book was so cool but you got to watch the show on the foxbox. The book is so different from the show so that is why i gave it 4 stars.
