We remind you that this new anime will debut in April 2021 and will adapt the manga in the full version of 35 volumes as it is currently being published by Kodansha starting last June 17 in Japan.

Here is the new trailer :

Shaman King was a real phenomenon in the early 2000s also thanks to the animated transposition that arrived on the Mediaset networks.

In addition to this first trailer, a new key visual has been released:

And the staff and the full cast:

Shaman King, the manga & anime

Shaman King is was written by Hiroyuki Takei and serialized in the weekly magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump published by Shūeisha from 30 June 1998 to 30 August 2004. Subsequently, the various chapters were collected in 32 tankōbon volumes published from 3 December 1998 to 5 January 2005. Subsequently the volumes they have been reprinted in kanzenban format for a total of 27 issues.

The manga has 289 chapters collected in 32 volumes and about 16 extra chapters, and at the end a short final story called Le Terme di Funbari.

In Italy the series was published by Edizioni Star Comics within the Dragon series from 3 June 2003 to 4 September 2006 in the original tankōbon format and later in the kanzenban format from 3 November 2010 to 2 January 2013 in a series called Shaman King Perfect Edition - with tables revised and corrected by the author, new format, color pages and revised and corrected dialogues - of which, however, many volumes are out of print.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Descendant of a very ancient family of shamans, although wanting a quiet life, Yoh Asakura will participate in the Shaman Fight, a tournament between shamans who it takes place every five hundred years for the purpose of electing the Shaman King, the one who will bring the world to regeneration. In this issue, while our protagonist is still recovering from the last battle, a shaman named Anna enters the scene, introducing herself as her girlfriend, declaring that from that moment she will take care of his training!

A curiosity about the anime: the opening and closing theme song was written and interpreted by the famous singer-songwriter Marco Masini; the Italian edition follows the US one with numerous sizes and readjustments compared to the original and the three television specials are still unpublished in Italy.

Finally, in April 2014 the official sequel to the manga entitled Shaman King Flowers began to be published , again by Hiroyuki Takei and always published in Italy by Edizioni Star Comics, in the monthly magazine Jump Kai, preceded by a series of self-contained chapters that tell unpublished stories about the protagonists of the manga.
