Shaman King, Vol. 1: A Shaman in Tokyo Reviews

  • ♔ Dark Lordette Jennymort ♔

    I remember when I first read this in that huge

    massive sized book of many anime series that started back in March 2003 and ended in August 2007.

    Man I used to fight with my brother over these darn things. But now I just buy the actual books.

    I love sassy Yoh.

    With his new buddy Admidamaru.

    The cute midget Manta.

    Bad Ass Wanna-be Ryu.

    Begin the world of Shaman King! WOOOO!

    This was my favorite anime as a child. So I think it's more than appropriate to read it now that I've grown more comfortable with manga - reading in general.

    Well, I can say that manga aren't for everyone. You should like the way the story is presented to really enjoy this experience, but this one is a good place to start. It is not really particular regarding style or message, and is really funny.

    And about what happens... I'm sure you've read the synopsis. If you haven't I advice you to go and read that as I don't want to make this review a summary.

    We meet Yoh. He is a carefree guy. I don't like this type of guys in particular, but he is ok. Also, we meet Manta, Amidamaru and Ren. Almost half of the group is here - so let the party begin!

    It is a light-hearted ride, but not so light at the same time. It's funny and easy, and a great way to spend two hours of your day.

    Highly recommend!!!

    I used to be a huge fan of anime. But never of manga. Not until now.

    Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy anime but I am very very picky now.

    Manga was not my thing, not that I had tried reading one, to be honest...

    I thought that they were boring, for some stupid reason.

    Guess what... THEY ARE NOT!!! On the contrary, my first manga reading experience made me think that anime are boring! What the actual f...?!?!?!?!

    I read this one in a sitting! I devoured it!!!

    It was brilliant, very funny, full of action and the art was simple but meaningful and flawless!!!

    I was worried that I wouldn't get used to reading a manga (you read it backwards, from right to left, really...). It literally took me a couple of pages and then I just read the whole thing like a pro!

    This story is epic! It made me a fan of both manga and Shaman King!!!

    First, I started with anime, quite a long time ago. And ever since I started living in London, I promised myself that one day I would read manga. I must say, it was as good as I remember. The story is about the young shaman, named Yoh, who is coming to Tokyo to train himself to become more and more powerful. There he meets Manta, a small boy, who becomes his friend. From now on, they are having numerous adventures, finding out more about shamans and their role and abilities, and meeting new char

I enjoyed it a lot and I think it may be one of my favourite mangas ever. I like the style of Takei, which is quite dynamic and at times funny but never ridiculous. For fans of manga - a must read!

    This manga is “Shaman King”. I love this manga. The protagonist is Yo Asakura. He is a shaman. And he wanted to be a top of shaman - Shaman King

    He trains and fights against other shaman with the soul. The soul is Amidamaru. He was a samurai before he died. I like this character. He is so cool.

    This manga is one of the most favorite manga for me. So I hope that you will read this manga and love this manga.

    I've read the entire series but I'm too lazy to tag each one. I loved the storyline and the characters (Yoh, especially. Always have since I first saw the anime version. Always will!). The story had a heart; the artwork was nice. It's full of action with just enough dozes of comedy to break the monotony. I enjoyed it thoroughly and would have given it a 5-star rating if it weren't for the ending which was kind of meh. Shame really 'coz it was a fun and addictive read for my first ever shonen man

    Note: This isn't really a review. I just wanted to rant and rave. LOL.

    I still believe no one could understand my love for Shaman King or have I not found the right place to fangirl about it yet. This series is just as old as me, born in 1998! I have never tried to read the manga before, it is my first manga ever and I wasn't disappointed. I finished it so fast and I loved it. I could still feel the tension in Yoh vs. Ren's fight, even if I already watched the anime several times and knew what was going to happen. Yoh's victory over Ren's is the end of volume 1. Th

I have never tried to read the manga before, it is my first manga ever and I wasn't disappointed. I finished it so fast and I loved it. I could still feel the tension in Yoh vs. Ren's fight, even if I already watched the anime several times and knew what was going to happen. Yoh's victory over Ren's is the end of volume 1. There are a few differences from the anime and also, a few events happened differently.

    First of all, Morty's name is Manta which is still a bit odd. Then the story of Ryu's gang is a bit simplified I think. If I remember correctly, there were two fights between Yoh and Ren but in the manga they're synthesized as one. There is also another kind of story about the evil spirit that I supposed was at the old gym in the anime, the spirit that possessed Ryu but there is no other mention of Ryu in this book. There is also no mention of ghost friends of Yoh helping him in school in the anime. I also believe that Mosuke and Amidamaru met in the anime, but not in the manga. Another difference is Yoh rescuing the children from a burning building, which never appeared in the anime. And the last one, I guess, is the appearance of the boxer whose mentor died but Yoh brought him back to help the next gusshi. I enjoyed this book but it was so short and now I'm craving for more Shaman King action!

    is one of those rare instances where the show is better than the manga. I worshiped the anime as a ten-year-old; I couldn't get enough of it. When I read the manga a few years later, however, I wasn't as moved.

    is one of those rare instances where the show is better than the manga. I worshiped the anime as a ten-year-old; I couldn't get enough of it. When I read the manga a few years later, however, I wasn't as moved. Manta (Morty in the show, a name playing off the word "mortician") takes a shortcut through a cemetery at night and meets Yoh, a shaman. The two inexplicably become friends and Manta follows Yoh on his adventures to become the shaman king. Unfortunately, what detracts from the series is how annoying Manta is. Every panel showing him is chibi. He's always whining or complaining or yelling. He doesn't have an endearing side, and sometimes, I wondered why Yoh would put up with him. The plot is a little slow in this volume, but luckily, both Manta and the plot become more fully-formed and developed in later volumes. Yoh's laid back personality allows for moments of humor that break up the action and seriousness that often pervades the story.

    If you read the manga and don't love it, give the anime a shot - Morty (Manta) isn't nearly as annoying and that alone makes a huge difference in my reception of the series.

    65th book read in 2017.

    Number 626 out of 629 on my all time book list.

    By far the worst manga I have ever read.
