Yoh Asakura is a shaman - one of the gifted few who can speak to spirits. By channelling ghosts into his body, like the long-dead samurai Amidamaru, he can allow them to possess him and use their powers. But a modern-day shaman faces great responsibilities, because spirits, and the people who work with them, can be very dangerous indeed!

I really enjoyed reading this manga! I was a fan of the tv show when I was younger and if you like one piece you will like shaman king!

This manga series is funny I absolutely love it even though it's kind of an old manga/ anime series but I love the plot.May I suggest read what's it about so far in the summary section? Perhaps it will interest you.

This series is highly enjoyable, the plot is well written and you fall in with the characters right away! volume one is a great part to start, and if its not in the library system find it online or something. I high recommend this is a manga/anime nerd

It's about a kid who goes to middle school and is obsessed with ghost stories. Later on after school at night, he walks home through the cemetery where he meets a shaman named Yo along with his "ghost" friends, this is the point where it gets funny because as much as he loves reading ghost stories, he gets scared when he actually meets one(Wow) .The next day, he tells everyone in his class that he saw a "shaman" or in his case, a ghost, but nobody believes him. After he told his experience, Yo appears as a student in his class and more.
