Shaman King Vol. 1: A Shaman in Tokyo

Shaman King Volume 1

A Shaman in Tokyo
To most people, ghosts are the stuff of horror stories and nightmares. But to Yoh Asakura, a transfer student at Shinra Private Junior High, they're his friends! Yoh Asakura is a shaman--one of the gifted few who can speak to spirits. by channeling ghosts into his body--like the long-dead samurai Amidamaru--he can allow them to possess him and use their powers. But a modern-day shaman faces great responsibilities, because spirits--and the people who work with them--can be very dangerous indeed.

The gathering has begun--the gathering for the Shaman Fight in Tokyo, the match to determine the one shaman who can commune with the Great Spirit and become the Shaman King. Injured after his fight with rival shaman Ren, 13-year-old Yoh wakes up in a hospital bed to meet his FIANCE, Anna Kyôyama, whom his family paired him up with in an arranged marriage! Of course, Anna is a shaman too... and they'll need both their skills when Yoh is attacked by an undead Hong Kong film star, brought back to life as a kung-fu zombie to carry out the Ren family's revenge!

Are you trying to read this comic in the wrong direction?

...Gotcha! In keeping with the original Japanese format, manga are meant to be read from right to left, starting in the upper-right corner.

Unlike English, which is read from left to right, Japanese is read from right to left, meaning that action, sound effects, and word-balloon order are completely reversed... something which can make readers unfamiliar with Japanese feel pretty backwards themselves. For this reason, manga or Japanese comics published in the U.S. in English have sometimes been published "flopped" - that is, printed in exact reverse order, as though seen from the other side of a mirror.

By flopping pages, U.S. publishers can avoid confusing readers, but the compromise is not without its downside. For one thing, a character in a flopped manga series who once wore in the original Japanese version a T-shirt emblazoned with "MAY" (as in "the merry month of") now wears one which reads "YAM"! Additionally, many manga creators in Japan are themselves unhappy with this process, as some feel the mirror-imaging of their art skews their original intentions.

We are proud to bring you manga presented in the original unflopped format. For now, though, click to the left and let the adventure begin...!
