The Shaman King reboot anime premiered in April 2021. Netflix began streaming the anime worldwide on Aug 9. The anime ended with 52 episodes.

The individual chapters were collected and released in 32 tankōbon volumes. As of March 2021, it had over 38 million copies in circulation.
In 2017, Kodansha acquired the rights to the series and re-launched it on 35 e-book volumes in 2018, also published in print since 2020.
An anime television series produced by NAS and Xebec aired 64 episodes on TV Tokyo from July 2001 to September 2002. A reboot anime television series adaptation, produced by Bridge, premiered on TV Tokyo and other channels in 2021. The manga has also been reprinted in a kanzenban edition, and has spawned various spin-offs and sequel manga, video games, a trading card game, and many types of Shaman King-related merchandise.
It follows the adventures of Yoh Asakura as he attempts to hone his shaman skills to become the Shaman King by winning the Shaman Fight. Takei chose shamanism as the main theme of the series because he wanted a topic that had never been attempted before in manga.
