Shaman King, plot and meanings

Shaman King is a controversial and very complicated manga to adapt into anime. Actually the story has a fairly simple startcould be defined as almost banal: a group of characters is formed in which there are rivals who become friends, a great villain to face and a tournament to climb. The narrative is almost childish, especially since the characters are all kids, but little by little it manages to drag the viewer into a much deeper story than it seems on the surface. In Shaman King fights are just a way like any other to stage clashes of ideals, cults, beliefs and cultures. What really matters in Shaman King are the feelings of the characters and the messages they convey, which are also of some depth. It is a very particular story, where the protagonist is almost the means that moves the other characters rather than the one who creates the story himself.
