Shamans are extraordinary individuals with the ability to communicate with ghosts, spirits, and gods, which are invisible to ordinary people. The Shaman Fight—a prestigious tournament pitting shamans from all over the world against each other—is held every five hundred years, where the winner is crowned Shaman King. This title allows the current incumbent to call upon the Great Spirit and shape the world as they see fit.

Finding himself late for class one night, Manta Oyamada, an ordinary middle school student, decides to take a shortcut through the local cemetery. Noticing him, a lone boy sitting on a gravestone invites Manta to stargaze with "them." Realizing that "them" refers to the boy and his ghostly friends, Manta flees in terror. Later, the boy introduces himself as You Asakura, a Shaman-in-training, and demonstrates his powers by teaming up with the ghost of six-hundred-year-old samurai Amidamaru to save Manta from a group of thugs. You befriends Manta due to his ability to see spirits, and with the help of Amidamaru, they set out to accomplish You's goal of becoming the next Shaman King.

!! This review contains out of context spoilers. !!

I remember the first time when the reboot was announced: I was so excited to start it, and because I rarely get hyped over new anime, it is pretty clear that I had some high enough expectations at that time. It may or it may not be clear by now, but I grew up watching the old adaptation, and I will try to not bring it up that much in this review.

I became more and more disappointed the more episodes I've consumed. The first episode made me meh enough, there was no wow factor to get me ...

I really loved this adaptation! I had a blast watching it every week and was always excited for each new episode. Of course, it's not perfect, it does have some flaws which, depending on your preferences, may affect your opinion really negatively, but I personally had an overwhelmingly positive experience!

I loved the story, though that's kind of a given, since I'm a fan of the manga in the first place. Nevertheless, it's worth mentioning that this anime does a great job adapting the whole story of the manga and very faithfully at that. There are very few things that have been changed or cut, but ...

The story starts meh, becomes kinda interesting and then gets worse and worse, thats both due to messy pacing and the core of story itself being bad.

The story its simple enough and moves fast, which is even more amazing on how it got this bad, it cannot even keep its tone consistent, DEM and lack of any consequences as well.

The characters themselves are not that interesting either, a lot of them are annoying as well and there is a lot of them, pointless additions overall but on the bright side the villain is fleshed out well, if not for the tone thing i mentioned which ...
