The new Shaman King anime will be releasing later this year, and is surely one of 2021’s most anticipated anime. And now, Netflix has released a brand new PV for the anime. It features new footage, as well as confirms that Netflix will release the anime worldwide in 2021.
In Japan, it will be premiering on April 1, 2021. Much of the cast from the original anime will be returning, though there will be some new voices. This of course include Youko Hikasa, who will be voicing Yoh Asakura. Katsuyuki Konishi will be reprising his role as Amidamaru, while Megumi Hayashibara is also returning as Anna Kouyama. Inuko Inuyama will also come back as Manta Oyamada, alongside Romi Park as Tao Ren.
Joji Furuta will be directing the remake, with Bridge animating it. Pokemon’s Shoji Yonemura is writing the script, while Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun’s Satohiko Sano is designing the characters. As previously announced, this new anime will be a complete adaptation of the manga. This means that it will adapt all 35 volumes of the manga’s new complete edition.
The manga first made its debut in 1998 inside the pages of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine. It abruptly ended in 2004 before getting a “True Ending” in 2009. It would then get short story manga chapters, as well as a sequel series, Chaman King Flowers, which ran from 2012-2014. Of course, it also received a popular TV anime adaptation which ran from 2001-2002.
