    Default The Anime or the Manga?

    Has anyone else watched the anime version of shaman king. I've read the manga and found that its still an on going project even though it's already lisenced to Viz. Although I've also watched the anime I felt kinda dissappointed about it... Some of the anime episode contains scenes that are not even on any page of the manga I've read... In one episode I've watched where in Yoh meets Horo Horo for the first time... they set it at a time before the shaman fight even started but in the manga Yoh meets Horo Horo during the shaman fight ang got to be friends with him... Another episode I watched was when Yoh was getting out of the Yomi cave wherein the Lily 5 attacked and tried to close the cave so that Yoh couldn't get out (has anyone read that part on the manga)... Although the anime itself is still good I wish they could just stick to the manga and rather making up some parts for the scenes they could just create like a filler story so as to be near the manga version

    Yea, they added useless characters inside the anime and totally screwed up the sequence. Yoh's group was supposed to battle the Ice Gods DURING the main event, not before.

    For me, it alternates. I found the manga to be better at first, but then around the time they started trying to find Patch Village, it became inferior. The anime's elaborations/filler were actually helpful to the series. The manga has started to get good again, around the time that Hao fought X-III, so yeah.

    shaman king anime isn't that bad. its just the ending that ruined it, the ending was total bs. thats y i like the manga much better. hopefully it will have a better ending than the manga (this is what happens when they make bad guys too strong ex. bleach/naruto)

    I'll never understand why everyone thinks the anime is bad. I like it better than the manga. I think they improved a lot of things (note: I DO love the manga though!)

    Also, it can be kinda fun for some things to be different b/t the manga and the anime. It would be boring if it were completely the same.

    As for added characters, you got me. I don't know why they did it, but I'm glad they did because the Lily 5 are funny.

    its kind of obvious lol, the anime ending made the show pointless basically. yoh got everyone's fukryoku added together in the world or something and defeated hao in 1 slash.. dont u see somethign wrong with that? lol it means that the show has been pointless, if u can do that then do it in the beginning and end it with episode 2, not in the end.. when everythign fails they try the easiest way.. thats why i like the manga better

    Well, I don't think it made the anime pointless, but yeah, the anime ending was a HUGE cop-out.

    Though I don't particularly care for the anime anymore, I did like how the anime handled that vampire (?) shaman and how the anime made Ryo more badass alot earlier than the manga. But besides that, I prefer the manga.
    Forever searching...
