Yoh Asakura is a shaman - one of the gifted few who, thanks to training or natural talent, can channel spirits that most people can't even see. With the help of his fiancee, Anna, Yoh is in training for the ultimate shaman sports event: the "Shaman Fight in Tokyo," the once-every-500-years tournament to see who can shape humanity's future and become the Shaman King. But unfortunately for Yoh, every shaman in the world is competing for the same prize… The X-Laws are determined to lure Yoh to their camp, and Hao has his sights set squarely on Ren! In the midst of all this, Lyserg discovers that the X-Laws may not be the steadfast allies he took them for. And Yoh finally reveals a terrible secret from his past...and Hao's.
