Spirit of Fire

Spirit Of Fire

The manga and anime series Shaman King features several characters created by Hiroyuki Takei. As a result of being focused on shamanism the series' cast is divided between humans and spirits, the latter not being able to go the afterlife due to their alliance with the former.

The series primarily focuses on a teenager named Yoh Asakura who reveals classmate Manta Oyamada that he is a shaman when fighting a group delinquents led by Ryu. Wishing to lead a peaceful life, Yoh has been training from an early age to become the titular "Shaman King" able to change the world's shape. In his training to become the Shaman King Manta meets several of Yoh's acquaintances, including his fiance Anna Kyoyama and his spirit partner, the samurai Amidamaru. Yoh also meets several shamans across a fighting competition to determine the Shaman King, some of them becoming his friends and enemies. The series' sequel, Shaman King Flowers, deals with Yoh's son, Hana Asakura, on his development as a shaman.

Famous quotes containing the words spirit of, fire and/or spirit:

    The Canadians of those days, at least, possessed a roving spirit of adventure which carried them further, in exposure to hardship and danger, than ever the New England colonist went, and led them, though not to clear and colonize the wilderness, yet to range over it as coureurs de bois, or runners of the woods, or, as Hontan prefers to call them, coureurs de risques, runners of risks; to say nothing of their enterprising priesthood.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Men, you are all marksmen—don’t one of you fire until you see the whites of their eyes.
    Israel Putnam (1718–1790)

    The free, independent spirit who commits himself to no dogma and will not decide in favor of any party has no homestead on earth.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)
