|English Name:||Hana Asakura|
|First Appearance:||Funbari no Uta Chapter 1(Manga)|
|Meaning:||"The Darling Of Buddha"|
Asakura Hana (麻倉花, Asakura Hana) is the protagonist of Funbari no Uta, Hana's Epoch and Shaman King: Flowers. He is the son of Asakura Yoh and Asakura Anna, and is the main heir to the Asakura Family after his father.
Hana has mid-length dirty blond hair that is very similar to his father Yoh Asakura's hair style. The only difference is that Hana's hair is wavy like his Mother's. He has amber colored eyes and a light complexion.
When Hana Asakura was younger, he dressed in overalls with no under shirt. His hair was much longer, and more wild looking.
In the Shaman King Flowers One Shot Twisted World, Hana's hair was again long and wild-looking. now that he is older however, he dresses very similarly to his father's casual clothes. He wears a high-collared white shirt with rolled up sleeves, and jeans with rolled cuffs. The biggest difference is that he wears a black under-shirt whereas Asakura Yoh wore no under-shirt at all.He also does not wear his father's headphones (This changes later). He is seen carrying a black briefcase as well, which holds the Asakura family's secret treasure, the Futsunomi-Tama sword.
In Shaman King Flowers, his style changes only slightly. He wears the same clothes with only his father's headphones added. He does wear them differently, having the actual headphones rest right above his ears while the band runs at the top of his neck. At times he also wears his schools black jacket over his shirt as well. He also carrys the Futsunomi-Tama sword in his briefcase as in the one shot.
Later he is seen wearing a white t-shirt and black sweatpants. These appear to be his sleep clothes. While wearing them he keeps the Futsunomi-Tama sword tucked into the back of his pants in case he needs it.
Hana seems to have a very similar attitude to his mother Anna. He is quick to anger and overly violent at times. He also has a signature "welcome" kick with which he greets most people (this includes his father Yoh, horohoro, and even his uncle Hao). This is very reminiscent of his mother who would use her "famous left" to slap people who were irritating her. In contrast to his father, he doesn't show his spirits much respect, he is not as friendly to everyone the first time, and does not seem as kind.
However, Hana does seem to have a soft side. He attempts to get first aid for Asakura Yohane who he had just beaten in a fight and later he is seen watering his flowers.
Hana does seem to be very vain as well. He says that he would die of embarassment if he wore anything like Yohane's eyepatch. He accuses Yohane of having "Second Grade-itis" because of the way he talks and dresses. Later when he sees Asakura Luca for the first time, watching him through a window, he immediately believes her to be a secret admirer.
He also seems to have resentment for his father as he states The only one who will beat Asakura Yoh is me. This could also be taken to mean that he hopes that he will one day surpass his father, and that Yoh is Hana's greatest obstacle to overcome.
Abilities and PowersEdit
According to Amidamaru, Hana has more potential than his father as a Shaman, both physically and mentally. According to Ryu he has the same strength as his mother and he even has a phantom left kick. At the age of 7, he already had the ability to form an Over Soul.
- Futsu-no-Mitama no Tsurugi
The Futsu-no-Mitama no Tsurugi (Antiquity in the English Anime) is a red sword shaped rock that has been owned by the Asakura Family ever since the time of Asakura Hao. According to Hao it was once owned by a sword god and even though it's only made of rock, it is the perfect medium to create a sword oversoul. That sword which slumbers in a storage room of the Asakura Family, always creates a stir in the world when surfaced since it's a national treasure.

Hana has inherited his father's spirit ally, Amidamaru. Using the Futsu-no-Mitama no Tsurugi he is able to create a simple Over Soul with a a demonic head that acts as a flexible shield but he can also change it into an arm guard with a cleaver like blade.

Hana has demonstrated the skill to summon Onis like his mother, Anna. It was an ability given to him by his uncle, Asakura Hao, when he revived him as a baby, as a way of preventing him from ever dying again. Doing this also benefited Hao. With Hana having the ability to summon Onis, he would be even more powerful as the leader of Team Hao, in the Flower Of Maize  Initially he only summons small ones, but if they are defeated he begins to chant "Demons Out" while summoning large ones. Eventually he will begin to condense the summoned Onis into a Dark Oni.
When Ichihara Ryuji almost killed Hana by fracturing his skull he went into a trance and began summoning them at random. Alumi refers to this state as Setsubun Mode. When he was attacked by Ibuki Gakko he summoned several small ones at will and was even able to shape them into a battle armor around himself. He can also use furyoku nullification with the small onis.
The final and ultimate risk of using this power is revealed to Hana when he uses it to combat Tao Men and dies. According to Hao himself, this is a power given to Hana in order to protect him when his life is at risk, so using it intentionally is like putting his own life in danger and eventually it will kill him.
He is the six year old son of Asakura Yoh and Asakura Anna who is now traveling with Umemiya Ryunosuke, but is currently in the custody of Tamamura Tamao whom he believes is his real mother. It is also revealed that as a baby, he and his parents were killed in the Middle East before Anna forced Hao to revive them through blackmail. While doing so he implants Oni's into his nephew as a safeguard. Later on, as a child, he was present with Alumni Niumburch at the Patch Village amidsts it's destruction by a young Kamogawa Yosuke. Unfortunately, he lost a portion of his memories some time after these incidents.
Funbari no UtaEdit
Introduced as a 6 year old, he is under the guardianship of Tamao. In short, he works with Ryu to search for The Five Elemental Warriors. After meeting with four of the warriors and hearing them talk about the final encounter with Asakura Hao, his father and mother suddenly arrive, with his father saying that everything will work out in the end because that is what they promised him. Stuttering "Fa... Father" Hana suddenly attacks his father with a "Welcome Kick". After that, Tamao then scolds Hana for kicking his father in the gut, yet he refuses to apologize.
At age 13 Hana was called to the cemetery by Ichihara Ryuji and his gang who wished to beat him in order to be recognized as the strongest gang in West Tokyo. Hana, who does not understand their reasoning, nevertheless takes up their challenge and beat them by using Hyōi-Gattai with Amidamaru. When he returns home he is however scolded by Tamao for using spirits, and she bans him from using them.
When he returns to the cemetery the next day, he finds Amidamaru's grave stone had been sliced in two, and decides to find the person responsible. He is however interrupted by a boy from his school, asking for directions. After Hana insults him, the boy reveals that he can actually see Amidamaru and that he himself possesses the spirit of a swordsman. He challenges Hana who accepts it, as it would end his boredom.
After asking his name, the boy reveals himself to be Asakura Yohane, but Hana merely ignores and laughs at his addition of gloves and an eyepatch. Hana performs Hyōi Gattai with Amidamaru and attacks Yohane who defends the same way. After Yohane gains the upper hand against Hana and delivering a hard blow, he reveals his Over Soul and his reasons to kill the heir to the Asakura Family. But after Hana hears that he is aiming to kill his father as well, he uses his own Over Soul and defends against Yohane's attack. He then changes the shape of his Over Soul and strikes Yohane, defeating him and breaking his arm in the process.
Shocked by the result, Hana leaves to bring him first aid. He meets Tamao on his way who he lies to about the fight and later the Hana-Gumi Waitresses at the Inn who almost makes him forget about the first aid kit. He later returns with the kit to the cemetery only to find Yohane gone. The same night, he reveals the events of the fight to Ryu who in turn tells him that Tamao left to investigate the boy and his sister.
Later during the night, Hana sees a girl across the street, watching him from behind a street lamp and goes to see who she is, thinking that she is his first ""secret admirer". She, however, attacks him with two dog spirits and reveal herself to be Asakura Luca the older sister of Asakura Yohane. She forms her Over Soul and mocks Hana's furyoku, before attacking him. Hana however changes the shape of his Over Soul to better receive the attack and then changed his Over Soul to its offensive form. Luca also changed the shape of her Over Soul and while Hana is focused on it, he is attacked from behind by Yohane, who manages to pierce him through his stomach.
Hana is however still able to stand and, in panic, Luca not only dissolves his furyoku with her Over Soul, but also combines it with Yohane's to deliver a finishing blow. Hana is however saved by the sudden appearance of Alumi Niumbirch who easily defeats the siblings' Over Soul.
When Hana arrives in the hospital he is suddenly struck in the stomach by Alumi after calling her "flat-chested". After his recovery he goes to school only to find Yohane and Alumi transfered to his school.
Hana and Yohane later on ditch school to go to a new mall that opened up. Hana is attacked by Alumi when she finds them at the mall only to see Hana feeding Yohane. Hana is then attacked by Ichihara Ryuji and Luca. Hana is knocked out cold due to not having Amidamaru by his side because he was turned to stone and in the hands of Luca.
While knocked out, Hana remembers when he died during a time he was with his parrents as an infant. Hana is brought is brought back to life at the cost of being filled with onis. Hana wakes up and summons onis. The onis summoned by Hana start forming a oni called the "Dark Oni", and Luca is defeated by the oni. Yohane is suddenly grabbed by the oni but is saved when Alumi destroys it.
Hana feels miserable knowing about this. Hana goes to the cemetery, only to be attacked by Ibuki Gakko. Hana takes the form of an oni but is defeated by Ibuki Gakko. He gets back up only to be knocked down by Alumi. Alumi is angered due to Hana using the onis purposefully when he was only allowed to use the onis when his life was at stake.
Later on, Hana is attacked by Tao Men. Hana uses the "Dark Oni" but before he could attack the oni disappears, and Hana finds Hao next to a tree, along with some cats. Hana throws a punch at Hao but only to be grabbed. Hana then uses his left leg and kicks Hao in the face. Hao then explains that he can see him because he has died due to using the onis for something else other than using them when his life was in danger. Hana tells Hao to bring him back to life. Hao says he will if he can defeat Yoh when he was still at the age of 14.
Hana loses to his father and then finds himself on an island beside a broken airplane. A man pulls out a gun on Hana. Due to Hana thinking it was a joke, he is given a scar on his cheek by a bullet. Back where Men, Gakko, Yohane, and Alumi are, Alumi explains if he comes back he will be more mature.
- The name "Hana" means flower. Hana's name comes from the conjunction of the characters in Yoh (葉, also pronounced as Ha) and Anna's (ナ, pronounced as Na) names.
- According to Ryu, one can tell who his mother is from his kick.
