What's /a/'s opinion on Shaman King?
Watched it long time ago (never read the manga) and I loved it, except for it's shit ending.
manga is better
and it's ending is also better but also shit
It pisses me off that Hao isn't ranked at the top of the power level chart. I mean at the end he becomes GOD.
There were multiple god spirits in SK. More like he becomes the god of gods.
That ending destroyed any love I had for the series.
Once characters, firstly Ren, began getting revived the series went to shit.
And that is why he should be the top of the Power Level chart and not some stupid robot from an eroge.
Great. Lame ending though
Liked it as a teen though the ending ending blew ass. Reread it years later and I can't stand any of the characters, there are zero stakes in any of the fights, Hao is the least sympathetic villain I've ever encountered and the author's crush on Anna and the way he lets it warp plot and characters in her favor is fucking pathetic.
>some stupid robot from an eroge
Demonbane is more overpowered than Hao. If being a god waqs enough to put you on the top of powerlevel charts then the top would be crammed with shitty characters.
>buying the shaman king card set
god I was retarded
When it aired on tv I hated it, mostly for the art. I still do.
Poland had the best fucking OP hands down.
I have a book thing where you stick stickers of each character, which you found in this packet of junk food.
I'm afraid of re-reading. I remember watching it on 4kids and liking it because I was new to anime. And I read the manga when it came out in Shonen Jump. If I revisit I think I'll hate it, so I'll just keep it a positive memory.
Superior opening coming through
Shitty parents general.
A shitty and weak god.
IF YOUR SPIRIT IS STROOOOOOOONG~~
i liked it, probably my favorite shounen battle anime. Won't read shaman king flowers, though, i feel like the time's passed and gone for me to read that
Manga was great.
Anime sounds like shit though.
Also Flowers is pretty shit so far.
>feel like the time's passed and gone for me to read that
I think that's the reason it died and became monthly or something.
I never liked Anna. She may have loved Yoh and all, but I don't like bitch characters that much. And she was a huge bitch.
i remember watching it a long time ago...now that i think about it it shamans remind me a bit of stand users...
Jesus christ, sounds like a bunch of castrated queers.
>mfw name changes
The shaman tournament was kind of stupid, I always thought the series could have used a more serious plot.
>not liking best girl
That ain't Jun
Standard shonenshit. The only above-average quality is the international/multicultural scope of the story.
Ending is shit, obviously, but that goes without saying.
inb4 they added all those other chapters or whatever I never got around to reading them
My childhood anime. Its fucking nostalgic
Do you mean the meaningless ending of just them staying at Selim's house on their way to Hao or whatever?
I read it late, but apparently it just ended abruptly in the middle of getting to Hao, right?
same, it was the first anime I properly got into, I think
It ended with Hao's mom slapping the shit out of him.
You then have to include all the gods from Feng Shen Ji
it ended with a fight between yoh and hao, after some freaky shit about eating each other
Part 4 was better
I WISH Yoh had come to the conclusion that he could probably reabsorb Hao.
I bet you like KLK too
I actually finished this recently after years of leaving it alone (owning all the volumes definitely helps) and it's definitely one of my favourites now.
I didn't even hate the original ending all that much.
I was thinking of watching it but didn't know if I should watch sub or english dub
Osorezan Revoir will never be animated ;_;
Anime was shit.
Manga was fucking amazing.
Don't punish yourself. It never got a full Funi dub so everything else is 4kids.
but is there even a english sub batch for shaman king.
Try nyaa. I'm sure it's there.
stardust crusaders rip off
Yeah, Soldats subbed it.
