Shaman King Episode 6 Spoilers

In episode 5, after what happened with Tokageroh, Ryu’s latent shaman powers awakens. Anna informs Ryu that she has fused his body with Mosuke’s spirit. As they return home together, Manta observes to Ryu that You probably uses stars to gain a message and special powers. At that moment, the shooting star Ragoh appears in the night sky. Ragoh and comet Keito travel around the Earth in opposite directions every 500 years, letting the shamans know that hours of the Shaman Fight are near.

Silva of the Patch Tribe comes to test You to see if he is a fitting candidate for the Shaman Fight. All You has to do is to land a hit on Silva. Initially, You and his guardian spirit are overwhelmed by Silva’s Silver Arms, which is a combination of five animal spirits. This leads You to learn how to manifest Oversoul, connecting his samurai guardian spirit Amidamaru to a Katana.

Silva shoots a concentrated blast of Furyoku at You from his O.S. Totem Pole Cannon. You manages to block it with his Oversoul and finally land a hit on Silva, earning a place in the Shaman Fight. Silva gives him his Oracle Bell, from which You will receive all his future instructions about the tournament. In episode 6, You might fight against Usui Horokeu of the Ainu Tribe. The fight will likely occur at the Sunshine 60 building in Ikebukuro.
