Shaman King is an Japanese anime that was made by Xebec and was released on July 4, 2001 and it ended on September 25, 2002. When 4KIDS brought the rights to make a dub for the anime they decided to make changes in order to make it more family friendly and get a TV-Y7 FV rating. As a result violence was toned down and Christian elements were removed.
