Shaman King Episode 5 Spoilers

In episode 4, Ryu and his gang search for the next “best place” after they are driven out from the last location by Tao Ren. One evening, Ryu spots Anna in the streets and is immediately enamored with her. When he asks her to be his “best place,” he gets rejected outright. He follows her and finds out about her connection with You.

Later, the vengeful spirit Tokageroh takes over Ryu’s body. Hundreds of years earlier, Amidamaru Killed him, and the latter has been seeking vengeance since. Tokageroh captures Manta before confronting You and Amidamaru. Things become complicated when You and Amidamaru realize that Tokageroh has the Harusame. Pragmatic as ever, Anna tells them they don’t have that many choices. They can either incapacitate Ryo’s body or abandon Manta or forget about the sword. They can’t achieve all of their objectives together.

Ultimately, You changes Tokageroh by trusting him and letting him possess his body. In episode 5, You might meet Silva, who will offer him a place in the Shaman Fight if he manages to strike him at least once in 10 minutes.
