Shaman King celebrates 20th anniversary with new manga

Kodansha brought in the new year by announcing that the Shaman King manga will get a whole new lease of life for its 20th anniversary. First published in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1998 to 2004, a new arc will begin in Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine Edge from this springtime.

Shaman King 20th Anniversary key

More details will soon be arriving on the official anniversary website, but for now at least that something to get us fans through the winter blues. We have fond memories of the anime released overseas by 4Kids, that nostalgic kingpin of our cartoon-viewing childhoods. For us, and we’re sure you agree, its quiet reign was far too short, so we’ll be glad to see it back again very soon.

The manga’s author Hiroyuki Takei had a few words the mark the occasion, saying “I will keep doing my best to make this work reach the readers of the next generation, so I look forward to your continued support”. Takei also mentioned “various projects” still to be revealed, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled, and you updated with any further news.

  1. Hopefully it will mean that there will be an anime adaptation of it at some point. I remember watching the dub from my childhood and that opening song was too addicting. I essentially had a karaoke moment with some staff at a place I worked at as we played this song. Would be nice to see a bit of its magic nowadays.

    Wow! I remembered this anime when I’m still in elementary days. Cool!
