It’s cute that they let Yoh and the rest in on the Mountain Training sausagefest from the manga. Regardless of the circumstances in the manga, I thought it was interesting and a little sad that Yoh didn’t spend crazy amounts of time with his dad, since they both seem to have a mutual love/trust/respect for one another.
Also, this is it for the Funbari Spirits story translations I’ll be done. It doesn’t mean I won’t take the time to translate the Battle Mode endings here and there, but for now, I’m satisfied with the little break this gave me, and I hope it entertained you SK fans as well!
Mikihisa: You can do it if you try, can’t you? I think you get the hang of how to use your mana. What you learn here will be useful to you in future fights. You might not notice it just yet, but your mana has undoubtedly increased. But even still, Hao is incredibly tough!
Horohoro: Hao? Heh, yeah. Guess we’ve got no choice but to do it, huh?
Ryu: I wonder if I could even win against Hao…
Mikihisa: Hehehe… Well, I’m sure you’re all worn out for the day. So why not have a grand ol’ barbeque to top everything off?
(Scene change to the creek.)
Mikihisa: Well, what do you think of my Mickey Deluxe Mountain Training BBQ?
Manta: It’s delicious!
Chocolove: You go, Mikihisa!
Ryu: It’s the best!
Horohoro: This is the bomb!
Amidamaru: Oh, how I wish I could try a few bites.
Yoh: Over here, Amidamaru! Let me make you up an offering!
Amidamaru: I AM FOREVER IN YOUR DEBT!
Ren: We’ll have to head out soon.
Horohoro: What’re you talking about, Ren? Can’t we hang out just a little longer?
Ren: Even if lollygagging all day sounds fun, unlike you, I actually have things to do.
Horohoro: What the hell’d you say to me?
Ryu: Oh great, they’re getting started again.
Manta: But people say quarreling is good for relationships!
Anna’s Narration: Yoh and his friends enjoyed their barbeque. However, only one of them would be able to become Shaman King. In due time, Yoh and his friends would all have to fight one another. But even then, their friendship was something that could never be broken, because facing one another, heart-to-heart, is what the Shaman Fight is all about. That’s why it’s good for them to take things slowly like this for now, because the real battle begins here.
