New anime for Shaman King

Hiroyuki Takei’s Shaman King manga will be getting a brand new anime adaptation. It will release in April 2021, the official website of the anime revealed. A new promotional video was released to commemorate the announcement.

The anime will adapt all 35 volumes of the manga’s new complete edition, the official website of Shaman King said. Kodansha will be publishing the print volumes from June 17, according to ANN.

The Shaman King manga was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump between 1998 and 2004. The individual chapters were collected and released in 32 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha. The manga is pretty popular in Japan with over 35 million volumes being sold. Takei also published a sequel series titled Shaman king Flowers in Shueisha’s Jump X magazine and a new arc for the Shaman King Manga titled Shaman King The Super Star in Shonen Magazine Edge.

An anime adaptation of the series aired from 2001 to 2002. This will be airing in Japan on Full Anime TV and Bon Bon TV services.

Shaman King’s plot follows he adventures of Yoh Asakura as he attempts to hone his shaman skills to become the Shaman King by winning the Shaman Fight, which is held once in every 500 years. Shamans are people who can interact with spirits and gods.

  • I don’t think, that it will be very good, when it really stays close to the Manga.

    In my eyes, shaman king gained a lot of it’s popularity, through the really good Anime. The Manga…with the start of the second Round of the turnier…it starts to go down, really fast.

    Espacially the end:
    – We get to know, that the whole competion for the Shaman king started…because the Patch were visited by Aliens. Really? Aliens?
    – At First Yo wants to become Shaman King, but then he says, Hao is better…maybe his reason for this descision was, that he learned that he will die and his body will be the medium for the great Spirit.
    – And…Hao becomes good…becuase the ghost of his Mother gives him a slap, that was overdue…come on.

    What i want to say is: The closer the manga drew to his end, the more the quality was going down.

    And then they made a Sequel. Called “Flowers” and the “Super Star”. For me: Flowers completely killed the Series with it second competition, which made the original turnier obsolete and is unlikable characters. And “Super Star” burried the series. No contination of FLowers and despite being made by the original creator, it feels like a diffrent mangaka made them.
