Mangas

Since this story is a crossover based in mangas, it's important to point which are the main and from where I'm taking some darker concepts. As the doujinshi story goes I'll be adding more for explaining any mention (not sure yet if I'm going to upload cameos here). Some other explanations will be in the comments of every page that could need them.

Shaman King
Author: Hiroyuki Takei
Year: 1999

Shamans are people connected with the spirits and the other life.
Before meeting Yoh Asakura in a graveyard, Manta Oyamada would never believe the existence of spirits or ghosts. After becoming friends, Yoh confesses him that he has come from Izumo as a transfer student because a shaman gathering in Tokyo is near. It consists in a fight that takes place every five hundred years, where it will be decided who will be the next shaman king. And Yoh, as a shaman, wants to participate.

Relation with this comic: The doujinshi takes place three years after the end of the tournament, following the last chapters in Shaman King Kang Zen Bang. Manta Oyamada is owner of the company of electronics with the same family name. Miki Nueno (Mayuko Tsubaki) was a participant in the shaman fight.
