Shaman King Episode 3 Spoilers
In episode 2, a new shaman appears and introduces himself as Ren Tao. He sends a warning to You through Manta that he will take Amidamaru. Initially, You is not worried because he doesn’t believe anyone who can control a spirit can be inherently evil. However, during their fight, You quickly learns that Ren’s view on spirits is extremely archaic. Ren treats the spirits as tools to complete his objectives, while You views Amidamaru and others as his friends. Ren inadvertently teaches You how to access all of Amidamaru’s powers without dominating him with his mind.
You ultimately wins the battle but loses consciousness in the process. He dreams of his grandfather telling him about the King of Spirits. The episode ends as Anna arrives. In episode 3, a duel between Anna and Ren might take place. You might continue to train with Anna’s help and might also simultaneously maintain his school life.
