Asakura Yoh- Bio, Wiki, Personality, Voice Actor, Power & Abilities

Asakura Yoh

Asakura Yoh is the main protagonist in the manga and anime series Shaman king. He is the Asakura Family’s main heir and the maternal twin brother of the series’ main antagonist, Asakura Hao. During the Shaman Fights in the year 2000, he joined and led Team “Funbari Onsen.” Yoh marries his longtime fiancée, Kyyama Anna, sometime after the tournament, and they have a son named Asakura Hana.

Asakura Yoh Voice Actor

 Yoh’s Japanese voice actress provided her voice for Asakura Yoh, while Sebastian Arcelus provided his voice for the English version of this character.

Asakura Yoh Personality

Yoh, naturally a slacker, maintains a carefree, laid-back attitude toward everything, including achieving his goal of becoming Shaman King. Because he was rejected by everyone outside of his family, he chose to bond with spirits instead, and he believes that anyone who can see spirits cannot be evil. As a way of seeing things, he has a signature catchphrase: “everything will work out” (, “nantoka naru”). He rarely has a bad relationship with anyone and always chooses to make friends with the people he meets. He cares deeply for his best friends and is willing to die for them or give up his dreams, as seen when Tao Ren was killed and would be resurrected by Iron Maiden Jeanne only if Yoh dropped out of the tournament. He has a kind and caring nature, but when he spoke with Asakura Hao inside the Great Spirit, he revealed that he disliked humans as well.

Yoh genuinely cares about Anna and has decided that when he becomes Shaman King, he will make her life easier. He blushed just by seeing her face for the first time. Anna asked him before he left for America for the Shaman Fight, “Tonight… may I sleep beside you?” and he said, “Yes.”

Asakura Yoh Appearance

At the start of the Shaman King series, Asakura Yoh is 13 years old and a typical adolescent. He has neck-length dark brown hair and is frequently seen with orange headphones behind or on his ears. He normally wears his school uniform with his shirt open, but when it gets cold, he will button up his shirt, put on a necktie, and put on the standard school uniform jacket.

He wore a black vest, trimmed shorts with an orange lining, and wrap-around sandals during combat. During the second round of the Shaman Fights, he is shown wearing a shirt with a Funbari Onsen advertisement on it, sweatpants with sandals, and long black pants with wrap-up sandals.

He wore a yukata, a blue robe tied together with an orange sash around the waist, where he keeps Amidamaru’s memory tablet, in between the battles of the Second Round of the Shaman Fights. Another advertisement for Funbari Onsen is sewn around the chest of his robes, and he wears a black cape over his shoulders.

He started wearing jeans pants, a short-sleeved white t-shirt, and a plaid printed scarf when he was 17 years old when Hana was still a baby. His hair was a little longer and hung down to his shoulders. Yoh’s hair is now waist-length and wavier at the age of 22. He no longer wears his orange-colored headphones and bears claw necklace, and he now wears a plain white t-shirt instead of an open shirt. One of Hao’s star earrings is attached to his orange pants, and he is now wearing brown leather sandals.

Asakura Yoh Power & Abilities

Yoh has been subjected to exhausting and painful training since Anna became his fiancée, which has resulted in him developing a tougher and stronger body. During the battle, he is extremely adaptable, intuitive, and completely relaxed, and calm. Because of his relaxed and calm demeanor, he learns to negate Furyoku attacks, a skill compared to a grass straw bending with the wind to avoid breaking. He later refines this skill into a technique that completely negates Furyoku, and he learns to channel it through his Over-Soul or use it directly by grabbing his opponent for more devastating effects.

Yoh becomes one of the Five Elemental Warriors and attunes his Furyoku to that of earth, as evidenced by his use of metal to survive Ren’s lightning attack. While fighting his way through the Plants, Kyyama Anna examined Yoh’s and the others’ Furyoku values. It is revealed there that his Furyoku is approximately 108,000.

Shamanic Rituals

Yoh has learned many techniques as a shaman, including those from his grandfather, Anna, the cat spirit Matamune, and the Gandhara teams.

Ko-Oni Strike

This is an example of the Asakura clan onmyôji magic. An onmyôji can use this magic to summon Shikigami (familiar spirits) from leaves or paper talismans to do their bidding. They are useful for everything from housework to assassinations. Yoh never truly mastered the technique, but he demonstrated the ability to use it when he was ten years old, under the tutelage of his grandfather, Asakura Yohmei. He could only summon three Shikigami from the leaves at most.


Okyo is a sutra that Anna taught him. It’s a Buddhist exorcism chant of the Sankiraimon or the Three Refuges, that will send any spirit with Buddhist knowledge who hears it to the afterlife. However, because the sutra is a written language medium, it primarily works on spirits who identify with the culture of eastern shamanism.

Cho Senji Ryakuketsu – Fumon Tonk

Yoh learned many spells from the contents of the Ch Senji Ryakketsu that Anna brought him from Master Yohmei. Using this spell allows you to read the flow of Furyoku and determine its direction. Most magical attacks can be rendered ineffective if used effectively.

Cho Senji Ryakuketsu – Mikazuki no Futsu

This was secret exorcist magic left to Yoh by Matamune to aid in the defeat of the Oni that Anna had created. This magic, however, depleted Matamune’s reserve Furyoku and sent him to the hereafter.


Harusame Harusame (Sword of Light in the English version) was Amidamaru’s personal sword when he was still alive. Yoh obtained it after defeating Tokageroh, who had stolen it from the museum in order to exact revenge on Amidamaru. Yoh later employs the Harusame as the primary conduit for his Over Souls.

Futunomitama no Turugi .The Futunomitama no Turugi is a red knife-shaped rock that has been in the possession of the Asakura Family since the time of Asakura Hao. It was once owned by a sword god, and despite being only made of rock, it is the ideal medium for creating a sword Over-Soul.


Yoh’s first guardian ghost is Amidamaru, a 600-year-old samurai. Amidamaru is a loyal and trustworthy character who can enter Yoh’s body via Hyi-Gattai and later the Over-Soul. Amidamaru is a powerful but quiet man who is devoted to Yoh and refers to him as “Y-Dono”

The Gandhara determined that Yoh was one of the Five Elemental Warriors during the second round of the Shaman Fights, and according to Pascal Avaf, Yoh was destined to use the Spirit of Earth because it has the ability to create metal. Yoh has only been seen using the Spirit of Earth to create gravity fields to shield himself and others from various attacks.

Asakura Yoh History


Yoh was born on May 12, 1985, in Izumo Shimane, Japan. [6] to Mikihisa Asakura, an ascetic monk, and Keiko Asakura, a Miko. He spent most of his childhood in Izumo with his mother, his father’s apprentice Tamao, and his grandfather, Yohmei, who raised him in the family’s shamanic ways. Yoh spent most of his childhood alone, having almost no friends outside of his family and the spirits due to his shamanic heritage. Yoh was frequently an outcast among normal people, alienated as a result of his abilities, so he spends most of his time listening to music by his favorite artist, SOUL BOB. He did, however, always wish for a better life for himself. This inspired him to become Shaman King. Yoh’s ambitions to become Shaman King began at the age of four, when his grandfather told him about the Great Spirit, and Yoh, being the slacker that he was, saw the possibility of an easy life and decided to become Shaman King from that day forward.

Yoh’s training progressed slowly, but at the age of ten, he was informed of his engagement to the young Itako, Kyyama Anna. Matamune of the Cats, a cat spirit who had served the Asakura house for over a thousand years, became his first Guardian Ghost at this time. Matamune returned from the underworld at the request of Yoh’s grandfather to accompany Yoh to Ozorenzan, where he was to meet Anna, who had just finished her Itako training with Yoh’s grandmother Asakura Kino. On his first day in Osorezan, Yoh meets a young girl who greets him coolly, leaving Yoh stunned. After that, he was attacked on the streets by an Oni, only to be saved by Matamune. Regardless, the two eventually arrived at Yoh’s grandmother’s house and were properly introduced to his fiancée, who turned out to be the girl from earlier, much to Yoh’s surprise. Though initially disturbed, Yoh gradually unravels the mystery surrounding Anna and her abilities as a Reishi. During a battle with an Oni, Yoh’s bravery coaxed emotion from Anna, whose negative emotions formed the Oni, and dissolved it, though it cost Matamune the last of the Reyoku and caused him to vanish.

Arriving In Tokyo

Yoh moved to Funbari Hills to participate in the Tokyo Shaman Fight and to find his own ghost. After enrolling at Funbari ga Oka, the same school as Manta, he met his first friend, Oyamada Manta, at the Funbari Hill cemetery. He fought Ryu, who had beaten Manta up, and with the help of Amidamaru, Yoh used Hyi-Gattai to merge with Amidamaru and defeat Ryu; it was at this point that Yoh chose Amidamaru as his partner. Amidamaru declines, much to Yoh’s disappointment.

Manta drags Yoh along and tells him that partnering up with Amidamaru was not a good idea, but Yoh sees no evil in him and tried to figure out why he declined. They both see the old and rusted Harusame sword when they arrive at the Funbari Local Museum, and later that night, they find Mosuke crying in which he crafted the sword. He begins by explaining the history of his promise and how they both waited 600 years. Yoh joins forces with Mosuke to create a new sword for Amidamaru in exchange for the promise and then shows him the newly crafted sword. Amidamaru then decides to team up with Yoh. Yoh eventually returned the Harusame to the museum.

They have many adventures together, such as freeing an angry earthbound spirit from a billboard, saving children from a fire, and preventing a bully from throwing away his life.

Shaman Fights In Tokyo

Silva, one of the Patch tribe’s ten Patch Officiants, encounters Yoh at Amidamaru’s gravesite and challenges him to a test to gain entry to the Shaman Fights. Yoh will only need to hit Silva once to obtain the Oracle Bell, which will serve as a permit. Yoh accepts, and the battle begins.

Yoh quickly incorporates Amidamaru into himself and goes in for the kill, but he is stopped by Silva’s O.S. Silver Shield and is puzzled as to what happened. Silva explains the Over-Soul concept before slamming Yoh to the ground with Silver Horn, Silver Tail, and Silver Rod. Yoh, on the other hand, learns how to use the Over-Soul and places Amidamaru inside the Harusame. It succeeds, resulting in an overflowing, uncontrollable version of his first Over-Soul. When Silva notices this, he switches the Silver Arms to his O.S. Totem Pole Cannon formation and fires a Furyoku blast. Yoh uses the Buddha-Strike and deflects Silva’s attack right back at him, thanks to the muscle memory gained from being fused with Amidamaru so many times. This act cuts a hole in Silva’s headband, causing him to be hit and earning him the Oracle Bell and the right to compete in the Shaman Fights.

When Yoh returns home, Anna chastises him for the Oracle Bell, mistaking it for a pager, and the hair on his head, mistaking him for another woman. Yoh decides to show her his Over Soul to prove her wrong, but he fails because he is out of Furyoku. Yoh is about to be defeated by Anna, but the Oracle Bell beeps, and Yoh is given his first match, which takes place in the middle of an open square, against someone named HoroHoro.

Yoh is given a battle costume by Anna before the fights begin, which he openly complains about until Anna says she spent all night personally sewing it. Suddenly, a voice above them calls out for Yoh, and Horohoro leaps sixty stories into the air and attacks Yoh in order to activate his Over-Soul. The fight begins with Horohoro, who initially dominates the match. Yoh eventually asks him what his dream is, to which Horohoro responds that it is to create a massive field of butterbur. Yoh cries for him and considers forfeiting until Anna brings him back to reality. The battle resumes, and Horohoro attacks directly, but Yoh is prepared. Yoh quickly counters everything Horohoro can throw at him, to the point where Yoh melts down all of Horohoro’s Musso Kurppe. Horohoro unleashes his most potent attack, a massive avalanche. It worked to a point, but Yoh broke through it and struck Horohoro, ending the match and giving Yoh his first victory.

In his second match of the Shaman Fight, Yoh is pitted against Johann Faust VIII. Yoh finds himself in Yokohama Cemetery for his next match, and Anna leaves with Silva to do something. Faust arrives and greets Yoh before going on to enthrall both Manta and Yoh with his history. He then extracts Eliza Faust’s skeletal remains while Manta flees. Manta, on the other hand, is easily captured and dismembered by Faust. The Bell beeps, signaling the start of the fight, as Yoh goes through the summoned skeletons to hit Faust and rescue Manta. Yoh is concerned about his friend, but all he can do is wrap a jacket around Manta’s wound. Yoh fights Faust’s undead skeletal soldiers, but he uses up the majority of his Furyoku. Silva finally appears but is unable to intervene due to the fight’s rules.

Faust directs his Furyoku at Eliza, breaking three ribs and puncturing Yoh’s left lung in the process. Yoh tries to use Faust’s strategy against him, but he is unable to withstand Faust’s full power. Faust finally charges Eliza with all of his Furyoku and charges straight at Yoh, who is able to cut down Eliza’s legs. Yoh, on the other hand, loses because he runs out of Furyoku and is unable to keep his Over-Soul. Faust, enraged by Yoh’s previous remark about Eliza, attacks again, this time with a twenty-two-ton giant skeleton. Ren then saves him and tells Yoh to train because they will fight again in three months.

Yoh is taken to the hospital after the fight to be treated for his injuries. Manta goes to his room, and Yoh tells him that he no longer wants to be Manta’s best friend, causing Manta to flee. Yoh tells Anna that he didn’t want to do it but had no choice because he didn’t want to endanger Manta.

Yoh returns to Izumo the next day for training. Yoh meets his grandfather at the family mansion and informs him of his responsibilities. Yohmei informs Yoh that he must die and leads him to the Yomi Cave. He’d be lost in the cave for seven days and nights, using none of his five senses. Seven days later, he reappears to see Anna, Tamao, Manta, Ryu, and Amidamaru. Yoh is his usual self after resurfacing, and Anna questions why he isn’t half dead, to which Yoh responds that it doesn’t matter. Yohmei gives Yoh one last test the next day in order to eliminate all of his Shikigami. Yoh accomplishes this in a single hit and gains a new Over-Soul. Yoh becomes alarmed when Amidamaru begins to speak out of nowhere. Yohmei explains that his Over-Soul is now on a higher plane than before, allowing Amidamaru to communicate in Over Soul form. As Yoh leaves Izumo the next day, he is certain that he will win.

Yoh prepares for his fight against Tao Ren and travels to the Mata Cemetery in West Tokyo. He waits with Manta until Ren arrives on a horse, then taunts Yoh. Ren dismounts his horse after Amidamaru and Bason attack each other. Ren attacks Yoh violently as the Oracle Bell rings, and the match begins. Ren is finally able to strike Yoh from a blind spot after a long series of furies and violent attacks, but Yoh easily blocks it, and a stunned Ren wonders how he was able to see that. Suddenly, Amidamaru opens his eyes and tells Ren that Yoh has his eyes as well. This opening allows Yoh to finally break Ren’s Over-Soul with a Buddha-strike.

Ren, instead of simply recreating his Over-Soul, powers it up and manifests Bason’s entire upper body, except for the arms, on his Guandao. Ren charged straight at Yoh, slamming his Over Soul down on him like a hammer and proceeded to throw him into the air after his second attack was blocked. Ren summons Bason’s arms and slams Yoh to the ground. Yoh loses his Over Soul but quickly recovers, and Ren continues his attacks on Yoh furiously.

Yoh and Ren are planning the Final Attack.

Yoh realizes Ren is using more Furyoku in his Over Soul than he is, and Amidamaru tells him he needs to power up, but Yoh says he will stay where he is and trust Amidamaru. Ren seizes the opportunity and strikes, but Yoh breaks through and destroys Ren’s large Over-Soul, causing him to lose a large amount of Furyoku in one shot. Ren is enraged by the loss and attacks again, unaware that his attacks are succeeding. Yoh loses four Over Souls but maintains his cool. Ren has had enough and charges in with his horse and Bason at full speed for the kill. Yoh responds with a powered-up Over Soul of his own, and they both crash. Ren’s and Yoh’s Over Souls are both destroyed at the same time, and the match is called a draw. Silva appears and informs them that they have both advanced to the next round. Yoh is overjoyed that he has passed and will not have to face Anna’s punishment. Yoh and Ren attend the opening ceremony, taking a well-deserved break from fighting.

Yoh, Horohoro, Ren, Anna, Tamao, Pirika, and all the spirits have gathered at Yoh’s to celebrate their entry into the shaman fight. They spend the majority of the night partying. Ren departs that night for China, and Yoh bids him farewell. Two Buddhist monks arrive at Izumo a few days later. Yoh and Tamao think they’re just ordinary monks looking for money until they send Ponchi and Conchi to heaven. Yoh inquires as to their identity, and they take Amidimaru’s Memorial tablet, explaining that they are the BoZ Brothers and that they want to be Shaman King. Yoh attacks them in an attempt to reclaim what they have stolen but is thwarted by the spirits of the brothers. Yoh smashes through the majority of them, but the BoZ continues to use more and more Over Souls to knock Yoh down. The BoZ move in for the kill, but Ryu appears and slaughters all of the Over Souls. Ryu reveals that he is now a fully trained shaman who has already won two matches. The BoZ interrupts and try to tell him their name, but they are cut down, and the car they are driving is now in two pieces, forcing them to run.

Bason bursts into the house and informs everyone that Ren has been imprisoned by his father. Bason explains some of what happened before disappearing and reappearing, looking as if he died again, but apologizing for getting carried away. Yoh rushes to China and heads straight to the Tao compound.

Tao Yan’s elite Jiang Shi greets Yoh, Ryu, Manta, Horohoro, and Bason as they enter the Tao compound. One of them cut Ryu’s hair in half, while the other attacked Yoh and his friends, but Horohoro moved them to a safe location. After Horohoro and Ryu each take down one, they tell Yoh to go find Ren while they take care of the rest.

Yoh finds Ren and Jun in the dungeon and frees both of them before defeating the Torture Brothers with Ren on their way back up. When they arrive at the entrance, they discover that both Horohoro and Ryu have been defeated by the remaining Jiang Shi, whom Manta identifies as Shamon, who also easily defeated Ren and Yoh. They are both saved by the arrival of Jun and Pyron, who defeated them both with a single blow.

As they make their way upstairs, they are met by the massive Yan, who appears out of nowhere. Despite their violent attacks, he continues to regenerate from the impossible wounds and easily beats them up. Ren can only see through the gigantic body when he regains his “path,” revealing it to be nothing more than an Over-Soul. Anna asks Yoh if she can sleep with him the night before he leaves, and Yoh agrees.

Journey Across America

Yoh travels to the military base to the next location. He encounters a slew of Shamans who have made it through the first round. Ren is also there, eating Takoyaki. Before the next test, the gang takes a break and comes across Hao. Hao warns them that they will be taking a plane ride. Hao hits Horohoro so quickly that the gang misses it. Ren Over Souls and tries to hit Hao but fails due to the Spirit of Fire. Hao allies appear and then vanish. The gang discusses what has just occurred and notices the Patch plane. Yoh is lost in his own thoughts, wondering why Hao resembles him. They all board a plane bound for America. Goldva announces that the Over-Soul plane will vanish soon, leaving the shamans to find their own way to the Patch Village.

The plane vanishes, and the gang is dropped on Route 66; they survive by using their Over Souls before hitting the ground and letting it take the damage. Amidamaru tries to find a town but can only find the road. Ryu employs Big Thumb Over Soul to capture Billy. Amidimaru admires the American West, and Yoh enjoys it, saying that it is good to go somewhere for a change and to have an adventure.

They travel to the next town and meet Lilirara, who tells them about Patch Hao’s past. They spend the night at her house, and she gives them a map of their next stop. The gang checks into a hotel and spends the night there. The following day, the gang meets Lyserg Diethel. Lyserg easily defeats Ren and Horohoro. When Lyserg attacks him, Yoh comes to his aid. Lyserg is not finished and continues to use the big ben wireframe. Yoh destroys it with the assistance of Amidimaru. Yoh agrees to let Lyserg join them later.

After a few days and adventures, they arrive at Patch Village. The gang comes across Hao’s followers just outside the village. The fans notice how much Asakura Yoh resembles Asakura Hao. Boris Tepes Dracula attacks, but Ryu defeats him. Yoh climbs to where Boris landed and is shocked by what follows. Boris was killed, and Bill was taken down by the X-Laws. Yoh stops the X-laws from killing him. Yoh accuses Marco Lasso of coming within a hair’s breadth of killing Bill, but Harsuame is broken in the process. Marco allows him to live because he is brave enough to fight him. The X-laws depart, leaving Lyserg pleased with what the X-laws accomplished. The gang transports Bill to Patch Village. The gang explores the underground for a while before realizing that the path they took was so full of twists and turned that they became disoriented. They realize they were led there instinctively. Bill awakens and informs the group that something bigger is on the way, which explains why the Patch threw so many curveballs at them. Bill then passes out again, and they arrive at patch village.

Shaman Fights in the Second Round

Yoh awakens in the Patch Restoration Chamber after having a dream. Yoh shakes his head to clear it and then searches for Silva. According to Silva, the dream was merely a vision of the great spirit. Yoh sees the great spirit for the first time and learns a great deal about the earth’s past, present, and future, and he realizes the great spirit is a shapeless mass of trillions of ghosts and spirits. Yoh nearly passes out again as a result of the Great Spirit’s power. Silva apprehends him and offers him soup to calm his nerves and help him recover. Yoh is led outside, where he sees Ryu and Horohoro. Ren is standing outside, staring directly into the Great Spirit. Yoh and his companions roam the Patch Village in search of food and to watch the competition.

Yoh and company are walking past a gift shop when they overhear Anna complaining about a keychain. Yoh is alarmed by this and instructs Anna to pay the full amount. Anna chastises him for his attire and informs him that Manta and Tamao are inside the village. Chocolove appears and announces that the next phase of the fight will be a three-on-three team battle. Chocolove also explains the three forces at work in this battle: Hao’s teams, the X-Laws, and the Buddhist Monk Faction of Gandhara. Anna realizes that this fight will be more difficult than they anticipated. Ren assembles his team on the spot and heads off to register. Ryu wants Lyserg to be the final member of their team, but neither he nor anyone else has seen or found him.

Anna suggests that Faust knows what he is capable of in battle. They go looking for a team member but instead find Faust with Manta on his lap. Faust asks if he can join them, but Ryu refuses, insisting that Lyserg be their final member. Faust departs, Manta still on his lap.

The next three months were uneventful, though they did manage to recruit Faust and master Hao’s book. The team is known as Team “Funabari Onsen” when it enters the fight. Team “Iceman” is pitted against the Team. Yoh uses his power to demonstrate the “Spirit of Sword” before the fight even begins. Pino of the Iceman is contemplating the fight, but it begins. The Iceman begins fighting and aims for Faust, but is defeated by Faust’s new massive Over Soul O.S. Mephisto E. The Iceman then goes after Ryu but is defeated by the massive Over Soul O.S. Yamato no Orochi Go. Pino is terrified and retreats, and he decides to attack Yoh. Yoh is hit by a frozen shockwave. The attack has no effect, and Yoh is unharmed thanks to the techniques he learns from Hao’s book. Yoh orders the Icemen to return at full strength.

The Iceman responds with their most potent move. Yoh defeats the Iceman with his sword spirit. The gang rejoices with the Icemen and takes a break before fighting again.

With a single slice of his Over-Soul, Yoh appears out of nowhere to save Team Ren from one of Hao’s teams. Following Yoh’s orders, Manta summons the Iron Maiden to resurrect Ren. Horohoro leaves in rage after hearing Yoh’s deal with the X-laws, threatening to kill Yoh if Ren is still alive. Jeanne informs Yoh that he will be withdrawing from the competition in exchange for Ren’s resurrection. Yoh, to Marco’s surprise, agrees to these terms. Team Funbari Hot Springs abandons the X-laws to complete their side.

When Hao learns of Yoh’s withdrawal, he dispatches Opacho on her first errand to ensure that Yoh remains in the Shaman Fight, or else he will destroy the Golem and the children. Yoh is persuaded to follow his heart by Anna and Amidamaru. As a result, he is forced to confront the X-laws. Yoh obliterates the angels and comes dangerously close to attacking the shamans themselves, using an Over Soul of himself with Mikihisa’s spirits as a decoy. However, Lyserg and Marco intervene. Only to be aided by Luchist and his angel, Lucifer, who quickly turns the tides. Yoh reveals that Marco’s “masterpiece” is actually Jeanne and that Luchist intends to completely destroy the X-laws.

He instructs Lyserg to use Mikihisa’s spirits and Jeanne to create an Over Soul of himself. While using Zeruel to rescue Jeanne from her underwater captivity. Yoh diverts Luchist’s attention away from Marco, only to be at his mercy. Shamash saves Yoh, who is relieved that he will not be executed. They kill Lucifer, causing Luchist to faint.

Yoh immediately departs with Faust and Ryu for some serious training after witnessing the new Over Souls from Team “The Ren.” Following the training, Ryu remarks on how awesome Yoh’s new Over-Soul is. Sati appears beside them and informs them that Yoh will be one of the five warriors. She challenges Yoh to a fight, but as time runs out, she uses a mantra to send Yoh to Hell.

Amidamaru and even Harusame appear alongside Yoh in Hell. Yoh believes the Matamune is present when they are greeted by the Oh-Oni from the past, but he is not. Oh-Oni leads Yoh to the first level of Hell, where he is left to fight his next opponent. He meets a man who resembles his father at the top of the stairs. Yoh rips off his mask and accuses him of being an imposter. The stranger responds that he is not an imposter, but the genuine Asakura Yohken. The very same person who defeated Hao 500 years ago.

Yohken yells to Matamune, who uses Ogre Slayer to rip through Yoh’s arms. Yoh realizes it was through willpower and thought that Yohken was able to summon the Ogre Slayer. He can heal his arms and summon the Futunomitama no Turugi by using it himself. He compares it to an Over Soul and attacks Yohken with his new Over-Soul: Spirit of the Sword: White Swan. Yohken realizes the power of such a combination and is pleased to finally face a worthy opponent with Harusame in his right hand as a sword and Futsu-no-Mitama in his left hand as a shield.

Yohken responds by employing his most potent technique, the Dai Tengu. Yoh, on the other hand, counters the maneuver with his new technique: Amida-style: Na-Avidya. Yoh uses it to purify the Tengu and win the battle. Only then does he request to speak with Yohken, and Yohken eventually realizes his arrogance has blinded him to his situation. Yohken’s spirit is crushed by a Cho-Oni, and Yoh loses it. He crushes all of the Onis except one, who is awestruck by Yoh’s spirit and tells him to go to Enma Daioh.

Faust eventually resurrects Yoh just as Ryu begins attacking Hao’s men. Yoh defeats them with relative ease, despite their immense strength from the Star Festival. Following that, Yoh locates Anna in the forest, where she is being attacked by Hao. Yoh persuades Hao to stop, and the two share a cup of coffee.

Before Team “Funbari Onsen” takes on Team “The Ren,” Ren declares that Yoh is a fool and that Hao will not accept mercy from him. During the game, Yoh expresses his belief that Hao has no friends and is promptly attacked by Horohoro. Ryu intercepts him, but his ice attack causes him to lose his arms. Faust tries to heal Ryu, but Ren strikes him with a lightning bolt. With only Yoh remaining, he reveals his Over Soul and counters with Na-Avidya. Ren and Horohoro join forces to defeat Yoh. Yoh, on the other hand, keeps reappearing because Ren does not have the heart to kill him.

The fight is eventually cut short when Lyserg and the rest of Team “X-I” return. Sati also appears and announces that Team “Kabbalahers” and her own Team will forfeit, and knowing that Team “Hana-Gumi” will do the same against Team “Hoshi-Gumi,” both Team “Funbari Onsen” and Team “The Ren” will advance to the finals, effectively ending the fight.

Invading Plants

Yoh, Ren, Horohoro, Ryu, Lyserg, Faust, Opacho, Chocolove, and Jeanne arrived at the Patch Plants in the hopes of preventing Hao from becoming Shaman King. Yoh and his colleagues entered the plants and ran into Silva. Yoh battled Silva with his second Over Soul and nearly won, but Silva used the Patch song to boost his power and ignore wounds. He had to use his newly acquired armor Over Soul to knock Silva out. Silva awoke, perplexed as to why he wasn’t dead.

He was able to convey his desire not to kill unless absolutely necessary, and Silva let them go into the plants. Yoh does not play a significant role in the plants until the lake plant when he takes Faust’s place after Faust is defeated by the Patch Official Radim, and then the grassland plant, when he heals Horohoro of his injuries by encasing the spirit of Faust in his body.

When the group finally arrives at the tenth and final “Plant of the Universe,” they discover that there is no oxygen and no gravity, and they begin to wonder how they will fight in there. Lyserg initially suggests that they all protect themselves with their own personal O.S., but Ryu abruptly interrupts and suggests that they all use the heads of his O.S. Yamato No Orochi so that the rest of the party can fight at full strength. Ren expresses concern about the sudden burden of responsibility but adds that he wants to be useful as well, as the seven is currently his best position.

When Hao finally wakes up, he sends a message to the Oracle Bells that says, “‘so small.”

He enters the final plant and kills everyone with a single glance, with the exception of Rutherfor, Opacho, and Yoh. Opacho mentioned that the Hao she knew wasn’t here any longer, and Yoh deduced that Hao was controlling his body despite the fact that his spirit had already moved on as the Shaman King. Yoh then decapitates Hao, claiming that he is nothing more than a walking dead corpse. Hao, on the other hand, does not die, most likely due to his omnipotence after merging with the Great Spirit.

Yoh’s soul and Amidamaru are seen being absorbed by Hao after he grins. When Yoh awakens, he realizes he must be inside the Great Spirit, and Hao appears, revealing that he is indeed inside him and in the highest society of the Great Spirit, the society of the Shaman King, into which only those Hao wishes to enter are permitted. The two begin talking, and Yoh reveals that he, too, dislikes humans because they are destroying the Earth. However, he admits that he would never go so far as to kill them, so Hao orders him to leave. Yoh is not exiled, and Tao Ren, Lyserg Diethel, Chocolove McDonell, and Usui Horokeu also appear. The 5 Elemental Warriors and the Shaman King engage in a fierce battle, but they are evenly matched by the Great Spirit’s Over-Soul. Before Hao can use a black hole to destroy the Elemental Warriors, the Soul Train appears to anchor the five. Yoh is able to calm Hao down by telling him that his late mother was always with him in spirit form. After Hao reconciles with his mother, he allows everyone to return to Earth but informs Yoh that he still despises humanity and will wait for them to solve their problems before passing judgment, and to stop being so impolite.

Uta no Funbari

During the time gap between the main series and Funbari no Uta, Anna marries Yoh and has a son named Asakura Hana. She and Yoh start traveling the world with their infant son, but they are killed and end up in Hao’s realm in the Great Spirit. Anna blackmails him into resurrecting all three of them. Hao does so while implanting Oni’s into Hana as a fail-safe to keep him alive. After this, Hana is given to Tamao to be raised by her, and after Anna and Yoh have been gone for a long time, Hana comes to believe Tamao is his true mother. Anna was briefly seen in the Funbari, no Uta walking from the Funbari Hill station back to the Inn with an adult Asakura Yoh. [9] Formalized paraphrase

When Yoh and Anna arrive in Funbari, they get lost in the airport, which irritates Ren and prompts him to call Ryu to pick them up. Yoh and Anna finally arrive as Chocolove, Ren, and Horohoro discuss their last encounter with Hao, and Yoh says his catchphrase, “everything will work out in the end,” and says that it will because that is what they promised him. [10] Formalized paraphrase Yoh has grown very tall, and his hair has grown extremely long. He then awkwardly tries to justify his and Anna’s absence by claiming that they had things to do all over the world and couldn’t return sooner. Hana appears to be in tears at first and even stutters the word “daddy,” but then attacks Yoh with a Welcome Home Kick to the gut.

The Series’ Concluding Scene

Yoh and Anna make their way back to the Funbari Inn, stopping at the shrines of their deceased friends and family to pray. Toward the end, Ryu prepares a feast, and they are all seen having a party together, including Manta, much to the delight of everyone except Ren, who was attacking Horohoro.

Later that night, a parcel arrives from the Patch Village, and Anna enters to reveal that it is a book about the Shaman Fights that occurred in Tokyo. She tells them that their fight isn’t over yet and that the next Shaman Fights are only half a millennium away. When Yoh, who is lying in front of her, says that it was so far ahead in time that even the Oh-Oni would laugh at her, she stomps on him and calls him naive. While the rest of the group is debating who wrote it, Yoh gets up and asks Anna directly while tending to his sore cheek. She says that while the next fight may be five centuries away, she still wants one of the Asakura descendants to take the Shaman King throne, and she orders Yoh to begin reading it. Yoh receives a death glare from her and declares that he must not forget the promise he made to her.

He is only mentioned by name and appears in a flashback, in which a 13-year-old version of himself is summoned by his brother, Hao, to test his son of the same age.


  • In Japanese, the kanji for Yoh’s name “means “leaf.”
  • His orange-colored headphones were “stolen,” or at the very least, taken without his father’s permission, Asakura Mikihisa.
  • Furthermore, the Soul Bob records were originally Mikihisa’s, and Yoh took them with the headphones.
