i watched Shaman King in three languages, Turkish first, English then Japanese. Finally sealed it with the manga. It wasn't my first anime ever but it was the first anime that while watching I was aware it was an anime. I was a child then.

Children can and do appreciate good anime though. For this review I'll consider the Japanese version.

The lowest score, 8, has to go to art. As a grown-up I've seen top notch quality and you do not expect SK to demonstrate excellence in terms of art. People, spirits, places and backgrounds are moderately well designed. There are a lot of moments with read more

For me, Shaman King is one of the best animes I've watched in a long time. The fact that every single character has its very own unique personality adds a nice feeling to the overall show. Another thing I really enjoyed in Shaman King was that there isn't always one character who dominates the battles, but all of the characters you meet in the show have their own abilities, which make them important for every single battle. Besides from battles there are also lots of funny moments. I literally had to laugh all the time throughout the whole show, because Shaman King manages the transition read more

Recommendations

Both have merged souls into weapons and such.
I wouldn't call it the same storyline but there are some parallels.
#1 tournament that decides who becomes "king"
#2 superpowers
#3 strong feel for justice and friendship
#4 powers are lent (Ueki: from their god candidate; shaman: from their ghost)
#5 A girl that decided to become the main guy's "manager"

The rest is completely different though, characters aren't really similar.

Opening Theme

#01: "Over soul" by Megumi Hayashibara (eps 1-34)
#02 "Northern Lights" by Megumi Hayashibara (eps 35-64)

Ending Theme

#01 "Trust you" by Megumi Hayashibara (eps 1-34)
#02 "Omokage" by Megumi Hayashibara (eps 35-63)
#03: "Tamashii Kasanete" by Yuuko Satou (ep 64)
