I really like this manga because it brings back memories of watching shaman king and remember yoh's adventures. To those who watch and read Shaman King should read this as well :)

Story - 6 :
The protagonist is the son of Yoh and Anna, having issues to be the child of such figures ; he has turned to a lazy and brutal boy. With Amidamaru at his side, he soon meets several young shamans, some related to characters of Shaman King, with whom he's supposed to accomplish....something, but one issue is....the magazine in which it was published ended, forcing the manga to get an end (+ an extra volume released later on), ironically like Shaman King, it finishes in a rather brutal (sudden/out of nowhere, however word you want) manner. It is not a proper ending. It isn't even a proper story as barely anything is accomplished ; the first chapters seem to build up something related to him, the young shamans and Hao, but you shall never know what it was as the rushed last arc kicks everything to try giving an ending....and rather fails.
Art - 7 : As good as the one of Shaman King, not much to say about it. I play the card that if you are interested in Shaman King Flowers it is because you know the original manga.
Character - 6 :
The shortness of the story doesn't give you enough time or situations to feel linked to the new cast. However, they give the impression to be less interesting than their elders ; they are the descendants before being themselves. They are traits instead of being characters, that's what I remember above all ; maybe they were supposed to turn to viable personalities we shall never know. The irony wants the most interesting characters are the now older characters of the original manga. However, don't get it too wrong, one quality of this manga is that it doesn't fall too much in fanservices ; if it has its fair share it never goes overboard and tries to keep focused on the new cast.
Enjoyment - 6 :
I cannot exactly say I enjoyed it....but I wasn't bored. I admit it, it is curiosity that drove me instead of enjoyment. Once again, I think the most enjoyable parts are the fanservices ; the new story and cast lacking enough interest to be enjoyable.
Overall - 6 :
In the end the sequel fails at living up to its predecessor and is highly forgettable, luckily for itself, it isn't bad, bad mangas have the disadvantage to be remembered. Maybe if the magazine hadn't been cancelled, we would have had a decent story, maybe....but it isn't what we got, it is the only thing I can rate. read more
