[wpspoiler name=”シャーマンキングFLOWERS Chapter 8 spoilers” ]
Luka arrives at her new school, and of course is in the same class as Ryuji. Ryuji has taken a bit of a liking to Luka, but we move away from their story as soon as he confronts her.
So back to Hana and Yohane after school at Amidamaru’s grave. Both of them have a quick chat, but are Amidamaru and Daikyoh are still fighting.
Meanwhile… still spying on them from the tower… the mysterious figure returns. This figure is now shown to be the same guy who was in the Yahabe manga series! He discusses the Flower of Maize with the Pyramid guy. Yeah… Yahabe is now canon in Shaman King Flowers… Also, Maize is basically the same thing as corn. He also shows off his YVS card… so.. he’s still got some special powers.
Jumping back to Hana and Yohane… they go to the local mall. Yohane is impressed with how large it is. Takei drops in a TON of cameo movie posters. Going from Right to Left….

Anyways, Hana and Yohane talke some more then get some food. Yohane is taking a long time to eat, so Hana shoves some food into his mouth. Of course Alumi walks in at that exact time! She uses her spirits to beak up Hana, and then walk away, Then Hana and Yohane have some further discussion about the last Shaman Fight.
As they discuss, they are confronted against Luka and Ryuji working together! Hana tries to attack Ryuji… but Amidamaru is frozeninto stone! Now Ryuji continues with his attack!
Just to let you all know. Next month, Shaman King Flowers will have at least 3 color pages. Since Chapter 9 will be the first chapter of volume 3. This has been happening for the last… 2 years at least… so it’s basically not a rumor at this point.
Anyways…. here’s the first image of what’s to come in SKF8! Make your own interpretation of this…
Ready for this month’s chapter? Fanservice, fanservice everywhere!
[wpspoiler name=”Chapter 8 spoilers” ]
First of all we see Banshou, a third-rate school where most of Funbari’s thugs are (was that Ryu’s high school too?) When Ryuji sees Luka he falls in love at first sight, since he thinks Luka’s a lonely otaku that enjoys talking like her manga heroes. Then we learn something about Ryuji’s past: he was bullied at school for being short and ugly, so after growing up he decided to protect and help those suffering the same thing. Then, when he introduces himself to Luka and offers her his help she asks him to help her get rid of Hana.
Scene changes to Yohane and Hana skipping class, upset with Alumi because of what she had said in front of everyone. A new mall has opened in Funbari, so Hana suggests going to take a look, since neither Yohane nor the samurai spirits seem to know what a mall is.
Scene changes again to the mysterious guy and his pyramid spirit. Yup, he’s now confirmed to be Yahabe’s main character (was that oneshot supposed to be this new guy’s zero chapter?) His name’s Yosuke I need to check the reading used in the oneshot… kanjis suck, I’m sorry lol. Anyway, they want to kill any possible shaman rival/enemy in Japan before the Flower of Maize starts (yup, that’s the official spelling)
So, back to the mall!! Tons of shops, restaurants, a cinema… They split in groups, the spirits go for a walk and the boys go to buy some food. Yohane doesn’t even know what takoyakis are, so Hana buys a pack of 6 for them to share. Andy already explained what happens now, so let’s skip that part. Alumi explains that since they’re shamans they need to behave differently in front of humans (so she’s only violent when she’s with other shamans haha) She says she’s trained with Anna II as well, and Yohane reminds us of all the amazing stuff she did during the SF. It seems that she’s the Asakura member Yohane’s family’s most scared of haha.
When Alumi leaves, Hana confesses that he doesn’t want to marry someone he doesn’t know, and neither does he want to live together with her and end up like his father (being trained to death by an itako). Hana, depressed, doesn’t want to go back to the inn… so Yohane invites him over! But we don’t get to hear Hana’s answer, since Luka, Ryuji and a lot of thugs surround him all of a sudden. Luka told Ryuji that Hana had bullied her, so he decides to avenge her by killing the boy. Yohane yells at her to stop, but Luka doesn’t listen to him.
I think this has been my favorite chapter so far!!
