In the world of Shaman King, shamans possess mysterious powers that allow them to commune with gods, spirits, and even the dead…and Manta Oyamada's about to learn all about them, because his class just welcomed a new transfer student: Yoh Asakura, a boy from way off in Izumo…and a shaman in training!



It’s been over 10 years since I’ve completed Shaman King. But finally at last I can deliver the true ending to the story to the fans in America. It’s a message from my heart, and I think it’s a particularly important one in this day and age. I hope that it’ll reach the hearts of many comrades.” - Shaman King creator Hiroyuki Takei.



Shaman King was first published in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1998 to 2004, and was adapted into a 64-episode anime in 2001. VIZ Media oversaw the English-language debut of both the manga and anime in 2003. Shaman King also spawned a number sequels and spin-offs, currently only available in Japanese including: Shaman King Zero, Shaman King: Flowers, Shaman King: Super Star and Shaman King: Red Crimson.

In an effort to give Shaman King the production quality it deserves and its fans the best manga experience, Kodansha USA Publishing announced a delay in the digital release date.

“We sincerely apologize for this last-minute hold-up, as we are well aware how excited fans are for this release, but we also know fans will appreciate the final results.”


New release dates for the main series and spinoffs have been announced for December 2020. And they want fans to know that these delays will not affect the release of the Shaman King print editions scheduled for 2021 and 2022.
