Yoh Asakura is a shaman—one of the gifted few who, thanks to training or natural talent, can channel spirits that most people can't even see. With the help of his fiancée, Anna, Yoh is in training for the ultimate shaman sports event: the "Shaman Fight in Tokyo," the once-every-500-years tournament to see who can shape humanity's future and become the Shaman King. But unfortunately for Yoh, every shaman in the world is competing for the same prize…

Yoh rushes to aid his friends in battle, but is too late to save one of his most gifted allies. Can Jeanne, the leader of the X-Laws, restore him with her healing abilities? She may be our heroes' only hope...but her price is Yoh's withdrawal from the Shaman Fight!
