Anime Description: Shaman King

Shamans are those with the ability to see the dead and utilize their powers. They use spirits such as Samurai and Chinese Warlords. In Shaman King, it is the end of the 20th century. Yoh Asakura is a Shaman. He is on a training course, hoping to strengthen his abilities. His ultimate goal: to participate in the Shaman King Tournament, an event which occurs once every 500 years. Shamans from all over the world compete in this massive tournament for one goal, to gain possession of the omnipotent spirit, The Great Spirit.

Together with his classmate and best friend Mortimer Oyamada, his samurai spirit Amidamaru, fiancee Anna Kyoyama, and various other friends/rivals such as Len Tao from China and Trey Racer from the North, they will work towards the ultimate goal of becoming the all-powerful Shaman King.

Since he was a young child, Yoh has wanted to become the legendary savior known as "The Shaman King". Yoh's partner ghost is Amidamaru, who in ancient Japanese legends was known as "The Fiend" for killing off 50 men in one violent attack. While others have come to Tokyo to accomplish the same objective as Yoh, Yoh must battle them off and save his friend to accomplish his ultimate goal.
