    -A review on the shaman- Introduction arc (1).

    Hey! I know NBers don't read SK, but I'm doing this anyway.
    What's this? Basically I'm re-reading the manga, so I'll put my fav moments of each arc, as well as some comments and some analysis...if there's something to analyze.
    So..I'll start with two first chapters. As a matter of fact, Intro arc goes till chap 5 in my opinion, but since these first chaps are a bit long, I divided it in two secs. This is the first one.
    Chapter 1-The boy who dances with ghosts
    -Summary:In few words, the main characters (Manta and Yoh) are introduced. Also they explain what a shaman is, as well its abilities (well, part of them).
    -Comment: This one was the most lol chapter in the entire SK :lmao: I enjoyed re-reading it. I couldn't stop laughing.
    Favorite moments:


    Yoh's proper introduction. He looked kinda like a serious and bad boy (lolololol ). Also Manta's face... his mouth is basically a "O" :lmao:



    Another funny moment. Yoh is standing, staring at the river three hours lololol And Manta loses his patience and gets >>busted<<...


    He! Amidamaru looks like beast! *Epic*

    Extra >.<

    Ryu looked quite grotesque...didn't he?

    Chapter 2-The waiting samurai
    -Summary: Well, basically Yoh reveals the purpose of his trip to Tokyo (well, part of it), and tries to befriend Amidamaru, so they both can fight together.
    -Comment: It was somehow interesting, because of the way Takei-san portrayed the Japan of 600 years ago. It had kinda the atmosphere of Rashōmon. And also, it was very funny!
    Favorite moments



    Just like Manta said: He looked kind of cool...till he asked Amidamaru in a very carefree way


    I loved the panel where Yon ask Mosuke "Is that all?"...lololololol


    Mosuke's face

    Well, share your fav moments with me, and also your comments and memories

    Kang Zeng Bang's extra material
    Well, Kang Zeng Bang means Complete edition. The reason of its existence is that SK was cancelled around 2004 I think, nonetheless fans demanded to the Jump a proper ending for the series (fans know), so finally they released vol 32 in 2005, which came with the entire re-print of the series (Takei-san re-drew everything it seems...but I can't find the re-drawn ed ..I need () to buy Kang Zeng Bang...Also they are these new awesome covers...).
    So basically I bring ya the "new" cover for vol. 1 as well the extra material:
    Cover

    Colored material


    I really love the color Takei and co. used!

    Re: -A review on the shaman- Introduction arc (1).

    Hoo~
    Remember reading it a while back, I even have the part of the series in a magazine, the Swedish version of shonen jump~
    I enjoyed the series very much, good story and very funny moments at parts.
    I really liked the tournament, where they were made to fight one another.
    Yoh is the absolutely most chill character in manga/anime history, he must be!

    A funny moment for me would be when Anna smacked you around and made him go through absurd training programes(especially the electric chair)!

    Nice review~ I hope more get to read the series!

    Hahaha! loved that one!
    Though he had understandable reasons though, seeing how hard he worked.
    Also love how easy it is for his sister to ask something of him, he'll do whatever she asks of him!

    I absolutely loved those pages as well That was still when the manga was more light hearted than serious and it was hilarious to see Yoh acting so calmly towards everything Well until Ana came LOL
