    Default The Island of Mu-- Theories and Revelations

    I actually posted this in another forum but never got replies >_<.

    Okay,

    I was discussing this for another one of my friends from IRC ^^, since we are writing a fanfiction bridge for the ending of the SK manga and the Funbari No Uta. (We both actually work quite closely with the manga so ya-- we researched this a lot)

    I was discussing with him about the Island of Mu and whether it was a possibility that it was the lost city of Atlantis, since it was obviously a big deal and under water. Instead, we found it was a real mythological island (more info can be found
    here) and then thought of a reason why Mu was important. All in All this our theory we came up with, and since my fanfiction is a bridge I was trying to connect the history of Mu to Hao's deeper desires of destroying the human race (of course I will probably go into more detail on it later) but this is basically what we thought up, and I thought I might share it with you all XD.

    The people of mu, were shamans using and protecting the Elemental Spirits, but they eventually overused the spirits, and caused the Ice Age (yes the first ice age of man-- you know how Takei likes to throw in weird theories, so I thought I might too XD) . Thus, to survive, they perserve and live in plants (this is WHY there are so many plants and of differen types etc and their technology is great.). to perserve life, but when Ice age is over, the Shaman King, with his Great Spirit banishes them into the deep for punishment (why the humans never got hold of that technology). I actually have a whole more lined about about that, but;

    related to Hao,, he knows a lot about the history of Shamans, and probably knew all this, and if not, has taken notice of the human race destroying everything (even Horo says this remember), after all he knew about Mu: and an additional reason he might want to make a new world etc. is sort of like not REVENGE, because Hao isn't that petty quite seriously, but also because the humans are exhausting the sources of the earth quite quickly, and he wants to kill them off and create a strong world of Shamans for this reason. The Nature theme is something I find interesting in SK, and I thought I might discuss it here XD but ya, that is my plan, but I thought I might throw it at you all. But ya, my random thoughts.

    Mu? Does it talk about this in Shaman King? Sorry, but you kind of confused me.

    Just adding some stuff for people who have no idea what Mu has to do with SK....

    I believe the island of Mu was first introduced in chap 259. It's land that is beneath the sea. One of the SK characters describe it as an underwater aquarium because it has an air dome sealed over it. But more importantly it's the sacred place where the first Shaman King arose. It's also tradition that a SK be determined there ( in other words, the last Shaman fight is held on Mu).

    A bit of a spoiler but....









    Later we see Hao and Yoh combining forces on the Island of Mu because the humans (led by Manta's dad) attempt to go there in search of the technology and wisdom that Mu contains.
    p.s. now i'm going to sleep.

    I CAN'T SLEEP!!!!!

    hmmm...good question Madi-chan...

    I've read about 4/5 of SK already (toggling between translated scripts and raw is not fun!) and all that info still boggles my mind. Gomen Shaza..I cannot add anything useful to your theory.

    Edit: @Shaza although I do understand what you mean about Hao not being so petty as he's only driven by revenge. Wanting to rid the world of people who pollute it makes sense to Hao so that's why he doesn't believe that he's doing anything bad. His many years of looking inside people's heart makes him think that he understands the true nature of humans...which is Humans=destruction. Poor Hao...he is a bit misguided, isn't he?

    That's why I refuse to do it and wait until someone puts them together for me. ^_^
