Shaman King is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hiroyuki Takei. The story is centered around Yoh Asakura who is a shaman. Shamans are people with the ability to communicate with ghosts, spirits, and gods, which are invisible to ordinary people. The series shows Yoh trying to sharpen his shaman skills to become the Shaman King by winning the Shaman Fight. The writer chose shamanism as the main topic of the series because he wanted to explore a topic that had never been tackled in manga before.
