To maintain the balance between life and death, a tournament is held every 500 years to determine the next King of the Shamans. For Yo Asakura, the point is clear: he will win this tournament with the help of his protective spirit Amidaru! But this is not so easy, because besides all the other strong shamans it is above all his twin brother Hao who puts stones in his way.
