Shaman King Episode 5: Over Soul!!

Yoh, Anna, Ragoh's Star
Ragoh’s Star—the symbolic start of the Shaman Fight.

No, that is not a Kimi no Na wa reference, but things do get quite celestial in this week’s episode.

After a near-death bargain duel with Tokageroh the bandit spirit, Team Yoh looks to be in great spirits (pun intended) and more formidable now with the addition of Ryu. Yes, if you recall in last week’s episode, Yoh saved the gang leader’s soul from being in permanent possession. Interestingly, it seems to have awakened Ryu’s shaman power and the beginning of his shaman journey.

Speaking of beginnings, Ragoh’s Star makes its fated appearance to signal the start of the legendary Shaman Fight. In tow, Silva (voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa) of the Patch Tribe, who are in charge of overseeing the Shaman Fight and selecting its participants. He appears before Yoh to test whether he deserves a spot in the legendary fight. The rules? Yoh has to land a single blow on Silva to qualify. The catch? He has to somehow get through the officiator’s five spirits.
