Meet the Author

Unconventional author/artist Hiroyuki Takei began his career by winning the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize (named after the famous artist of the same name). After working as an assistant to famed artist Nobuhiro Watsuki, Takei debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997 with Butsu Zone, an action series based on Buddhist mythology. His multicultural adventure manga Shaman King, which debuted in 1998, became a hit and was adapted into an anime TV series. His new series Ultimo (Karakuri Dôji Ultimo) is currently being serialized in the U.S. in SHONEN JUMP. Takei lists Osamu Tezuka, American comics and robot anime among his many influences.

My son likes to read the Shaman King series, and always uses extra cash to purchase the next in the series. He watched the TV series, but enjoys the books because they are much more descriptive.

we start out seeing the outcome of horhoro and yoh's battle.We meet faust who is extremly scary.Yoh gets mad because something happened to manta.Basically it is very serious with a few funny parts.It was really awesome though.

Just like wat my headlines said, Shaman King 5 has the best cover of all the series of the manga.To make it better,it got funnier if you kept reading it. You should buy the book and series.
