Review: Shaman King, Vol. 5: The Abominable Dr. Faust (Shaman King #5)

User Review  - Tonya - Goodreads

Emotional stuff regarding Yoh's past. Manta aka Morty goes through some freaky shit, and Faust is one sick motherfucker. The show did not portray this volume to its full potential. But thinking it's a kids related audience, toning down goreish scenes was probably for the best. Read full review

Review: Shaman King, Vol. 19: Mt Osore Le Voile (Shaman King #19)

User Review  - Stephanie - Goodreads

It's nice to finally get some solid backstory on Yoh (and Anna); it really helps to know their past when understanding their motives for the present. Read full review
