I knew I'd be disappointed by the Shaman King finale, but not this disappointed. Nothing is resolved, not a single loose thread left makes any sense, and the Princess Hao concept is just plain confusing. What's going on? Takei promises to come back and finish the cancelled series, but I don't know if he can save it. Maybe it he remade the last two volumes, the series could be saved, but right now it stands as a testament of an excellent entertaining shounen series gone sour. ( )

Title: A Song Someday
Series: Shaman King #32
Author: Hiroyuki Takei
Rating: 1.5 of 5 Stars
Genre: Manga
Pages: 224
Format: Digital Copy

Synopsis:


All the various groups are on the beach and Anna projects the mana numbers for everyone. The Gang is fighting the next Patch Officiant and Hao is at the last plant, preparing for the sleep that will put the Great Spirit within his grasp.

The Patch Officiant Number 3 kills Faust to prove how serious he is. He warns everyone to just give up, as they'll run out of mana before even reaching Hao. Faust resurrects himself. And is promptly killed AGAIN by the Patch. Yoh then defeats the Patch through the Power of Love and Faust is a now a ghost.

The two kids who use the golem disappear from Mikihasa's supervision. They want to attack Hao directly on Mu. They die in breaching the mana walls surrounding Mu but the golem is revealed to be powered by the soul of their mother and so they all keep on trying to kill Hao. Goldva, the Patch Chief, destroys them with the oversoul of the First Patch but the golem regenerates.

The next officiant takes down Horohoro but Yoh integrates with the ghost of Faust and fixes him up.

Team Gandala has gained 3 of the 5 ElementalSpirits and the Gandala leader is about to fight the King of Hell for the 4th.

One of the golem children, now a ghost, delivers the Spirit of Fire to Yoh, as Hao doesn't need it anymore.

Yoh realizes, or reveals, or whatever, that the only true way to defeat Hao is to let him have what he wants and realize how empty that desire is.

The storyline ends with Anna and Manta saying they're going to wrap up loose ends while Yoh and the Gang deal with Hao.

The manga-ka then includes an afterwords apologizing for ending things how he did.

We then jump about 10 or 15 years into the future and follow the son of Yoh and Anna. Anna sends Hana (the son, a 6 year old) to an American Prison with Ryu to find Jocono, now known as the Legendary Warrior. Ryu tries to break him out and ends up in jail himself. Hana then attacks some tourists thinking they're trying to mug him. He ends up with Ryu in jail. Once released they make their way to a mountain seeking an old hermit. We then see the woman Hana knows as his mom, only she reveals herself to be Tamao, not Anna. She reveals that she's been taking care of Hana and will tell him the truth on his birthday.

The book ends with 5 mysterious characters making their way towards Funbari Hot Springs and 2 of them appear to be Anna and Yoh.

My Thoughts:

So the series got cancelled and that is why the manga-ka wrapped things up, or didn't. The fight scenes I didn't care about at all and I gave the rating I felt it and the “ending” deserved. It sucked. The power-up'ing trope was out of control and I was bored. This had become like every other fighting shonen manga I'd ever read or watched and the multiplicity of groups just diluted any connection I had from the beginning.

The ending with Hana and Ryu and the revelations about Tamao was fantastic. It captured the spirit of what Shaman King started out with. The 5 Mysterious Strangers was an awesome thing. That part I gave 4 stars to but it just wasn't enough to overcome the boring slugfest that came before.

Series Thoughts:

Shaman King started out fantastic. The friendships and interactions between Yoh, Manta and Ryu and Yoh and Ryu's ghost allies worked really well. Ren was a good frenemy and could have carried the villain/anti-hero part for the series.

Things started to go downhill when “Avengers, Assemble!” began happening. While characters like Horohoro and Jocono were ok in and of themselves, including them began to dilute what Yoh had with both Manta and Ryu. Both of those characters ended up being sidelined and not taking much part of the story later on. The main characters became those who had power instead of those who were just friends with Yoh.

When Hao was introduced as the Ultimate Bad Guy and he just kept getting bigger and bigger, that is when I felt this series slid off the rails. Instead of telling an intriguing story, like had been going on, the manga-ka devolved to Power Up and Escalation. It was boring and cliched in the bad way. I'm not surprised the manga was cancelled due to lack of interest by this point.

The Epilogue with the son and everything was a complete return to form and if the manga-ka had managed something like this sooner I suspect the series might have lasted longer. Having said that, I looked up on Wikipedia and the sequel to Shaman King, following Hana, only lasted a couple of books then fizzled out. I'm guessing the manga-ka is great with initial ideas and creating fun characters but then runs out of how to keep them going. Maybe if he'd stuck with writing shorter series he'd have done better.

Overall, considering how this ended I'm pretty disappointed in it. The humor was what drew me in initially and that just slowly drained out as characters kept getting more and more powerful.

If this was just another book in the series instead of the FINAL book in the series, I would have rated it much higher, but this is a pitiful ending to a rather entertaining series and I'm sincerely disappointed. ( )

So I decided to just do a review for the whole series. And I decided to do it for the last volume. This series was a wonderful read all the to the last chapter when it became a very bad ending. Truthfully the artwork and storyline was interesting. I finished 20 of the volumes in one day because I just had to know what happened next. The character's were funny and there was at least one person that showed up I think that we could all relate to or like. But the thing that killed the series for me was the ending. I read the something like a afterword from the author and I am terribly sorry for what he went through. I just wish instead of the way he ended it that he just put it on hold and possibly slowly worked on it. I mean this was my favorite and will always be one of my favorites. But I still decided to rank it high, since I thought it would unjust for me to rate the whole series on one chapter or one ending I disliked. ( )
