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, spirit and/or fire:
“Art, it seems to me, should simplify. That, indeed, is very nearly the whole of the higher artistic process; finding what conventions of form and what detail one can do without and yet preserve the spirit of the wholeso that all that one has suppressed and cut away is there to the readers consciousness as much as if it were in type on the page.”
—Willa Cather (18731947)
“Facts as facts do not always create a spirit of reality, because reality is a spirit.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
“Do they know theyre old,
These two who are my father and my mother
Whose fire from which I came, has now grown cold?”
—Elizabeth Jennings (b. 1926)
