    Default If oversouls can't cast shadows... [plot hole?]

    As I rest on my bed one night and picked up one of my brought Sk volumes, I re-read when Ren went against his father. Wow a thought just passed my mind.

    Now onto the topic, oversouls don't / can't cast shadows right? Ren's father shouldn't have a huge shadow. This means that everyone should have noticed that Ren's father's enormous body is just an oversoul.

    Here's one pic. There may be more, Im just a bit lazy right now.

    Whatcha think?


    Yes im bored.

    Just for all of you to know, I don't care much for this plot hole, just wanted to keep the Shaman king forum a lil bit more alive. (hopefully it worked..)

    Well.. This is a big mistake for the mangaka(dont remember he's name =S)..

    Edit: I havent said it makes the manga worser, have I? No... Actually i dont care about mistakes like that...

    His oversoul is wearing clothes maybe? Plotholes happen, accept them. They don't make a manga worse.

    I'll use this MSN conversation as my view:

    [20:24] andysislands: I got a SK question for you....
    [20:24] ミカエル - Mik: Oki
    [20:24] andysislands: and it's not translations!
    [20:25] ミカエル - Mik: ohh :P go ahead
    [20:25] andysislands: Why do Oversouls cast shadows?
    [20:26] ミカエル - Mik: Well probably because it's real. Something that can be seen, hit
    [20:26] ミカエル - Mik: Like a ghost can walk into a wall, but an Over Soul can't
    [20:27] andysislands: But ghosts don't cast shadows.
    [20:27] ミカエル - Mik: Yeah right
    [20:27] andysislands: and Oversoul is the reformation of ghosts.
    [20:27] ミカエル - Mik: With the furyoku of the shaman also
    [20:28] andysislands: so it's the furyoku that casts the shadow.
    [20:29] ミカエル - Mik: Hum.. you can't really see "furyoku" so what you can see it's a mix of furyoku+ghost
    [20:29] ミカエル - Mik: So Mikihisa's ghost are still in ghost when they switch form..at least to make my theory right.

    Why do these oversouls not have shadows, Im pretty sure they have quite a lot of furyoku in them to cast somewhat a shadow?
    does this mean that the below pics are just because the manga-ka was a bit lazy?


    Yoh's Oversoul has no shadow below it..

    That football guy made quite a lotta copies of himself, no shadow either.

    More coming soon?

    I guess over souls dont cast shadows in general, but Ren's dad's over soul form wore a giant set of real clothes. So that could be an explanation. Btw andysislands, dont oversouls 'not' cast shadows?

    well, maybe, Ren's dad clothes is a trick to produce shadow. Oversoul can't produse a shadow but it can touch a real thing likes clothes.oversoul doesn't produce a shadow, the clothes does.So, they can't recognize the fact that the truly of big giant body was an oversoul.
