How many soul enthusiasts do we have in the house? Feel free to discuss all things SK here!

Taking a page out of my friend @KiriNigiri’s book here and kicking off the conversation with some favorites:
Character - Hao is obviously the MVP in several ways, but Anna has to be one of the most badass female characters in any shonen
Villain - Tao Ren takes it for me, he was so relentless in his pursuit of Yoh early on that I really thought he’d be the big baddie at the end of the whole thing
Arc - weird as it sounds, I really enjoyed Tokagero’s introduction not only for him as a character, but how he and Ryu ended up bonding (and awakening the latter’s latent powers), watching them for the rest of the series always brought an extra layer of levity that the subject material sometimes demanded
Fight - Yoh and Ren’s rematch :cr7:

Sorry if I can't contribute too much. I've only ever seen some 4kids episodes of the series here and there. However, I do associate it a lot with when I first discovered One Piece. Both from the 4kids dubs as well as Shonen Jump Advertisments I saw which featured Luffy and Yoh.

4Kids fucked up even worse with SK than they did OP; totally ruined the dub by removing entire characters/plot lines, made the soundtrack as cheesy and childish as possible, and aired episodes so inconsistently that it’d be months before you saw a new one. The manga is stellar, can’t recommend that highly enough, but the anime was unassailably awful.
