09 February 2013
Oni, Lying by the River is the eleventh chapter of Shaman King: Flowers.
In the past, Anna coerced Hao Asakura into reviving Yoh Asakura, Anna, and Hana Asakura after they all died from the helicopter attack. As a condition for his resurrection, Hana had been given the Oni defense mechanism. With the Dark Oni defeated, Yohane Asakura and Alumi Niumbirch see nothing emerge from the core of Luka Asakura's Over Soul; Alumi reveals that their true enemy has likely erased their memories to cover up their actions. Meanwhile, Yosuke escapes with the petrified Amidamaru. As everyone recovers at the riverbank, it's revealed that the attack on the main Asakura family was Luka's plan to spare Yohane from their father's ambitions for the Flower of Maize. When Tamao Tamamura arrives to take them all back for a welcoming party, Alumi declines and heads home to see her hosts. As she affirms to her spirits that she will protect Hana, Alumi arrives at the florist shop owned by Redseb and Seyrarm.
