    Manta and Faust are going shopping. On their way back, they find a woman who collapses on the bench. Faust tends to her. Her family comes back, and thanks Faust for his efforts. It seems like they have a match tomorrow. Everyone goes and watches them. The mother and son give their furyoku to their father, who finished the competition off. Manta is quite perplexed about Faust's character, and is continually haunted by the incident in the first round with Faust. Unfortunately, it seems like Yoh's team has to battle them. Faust though, fights them alone. After defeating them, the mother and father persist, pushing the father to the limit to the point he breaks down. The parents wanted to become Shaman King in order to cure their son's incurable disease. Manta now understands Faust.



    I was really blown away by this episode. The atmosphere was sort of resemblance of Neon Genesis Evangelion, with some dragged out scenes in order to build up some tension, and the story behind the family's motive is just so fantastic and emotional. It's quality stays consistent throughout the entire viewing. Finding out the son had an incurable disease was a true shocker. Overall, excellent episode. Here's hoping that maybe, just maybe, the next couple episodes will be like this as well.moreless
