Yoh Asakura has spent years training for the Shaman Fight, a tournament that determines who will become the Shaman King and shape humanity’s future. Unfortunately for Yoh, every shaman in the world is vying for the same prize… R to L (Japanese Style). "Brother Knows Best" Gandala's Over Souls are wreaking havoc on Team Ren, and only Horohoro can save them! He hasn't a moment to lose because Lyserg, Tamao and Manta are about to be attacked, Hao is about to hatch his ultimate plan, and Yoh is about to learn that to grow stronger, he will need to make the ultimate sacrifice... 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…
