Shaman King is Rated Teen and has scenes of combat, ghosts, Anna roughly grabbing a Tanuki sack to force the truth out of him (for those that know tanukis you know what sack I am talking about which is cringe worthy), and at least one scene of Ren in the shower (though no frontal nudity) so use your best judgement on whether you want to read this book or give it to a younger reader.

Yoh had an idea at the end of the last volume of Shaman King and the fruits of his idea grow as Faust VIII continue

This volume has a few extra scenes compared to the anime episodes. For instance, I didn't know about Morty's family and their business or at least, I don't remember him having to fly to the US.

However, in this book Yoh loses his fight against Faust and his life is saved by Tao Ren, his next opponent. Yoh goes back to Izumo and trains in the cavern for 7 days. When he comes back, his mana is much stronger and he's now ready to fight Tao Ren - and he has to win!

I can't get rid of the thought that
Yoh continues to fight the disturbing Faust VIII and we even get a glimps into his past and find out who his ghost is- his dead wife. Her death launched him into necromancy and insanity. However, this is a fight that Yoh loses and causes a rift in our main characters. Here we also learn that Yoh's next opponent will be Tao Ren.

Manta ends up in the hospital to be sewn back together. His family doesn't approve of his choice of friends and decide to send him to America. He finds Yoh in the hospital

Ah friendship. What a great thing to have.

I always liked Yoh as a Shonen Jump protagonist. I found him the most humble, the most laid back and generally a guy I would have wanted to be friends with.

Looking forward to finishing this series.

Wow. Character development AND a new power up!

Volume 4 of Shaman King focuses on You's attempt at gaining strength in preparation for the next battle of the tournament: his rematch with Tao Ren.

Le bajo muchas estrellas a este volumen porque a pesar de ser sumamente interesante, odio demasiado a ese zorro y el tanuki me da mucho asco... Los detesto.
