The final battle will mark the end of the second anime adaptation of Shaman King and ended a full manga adaptation for the first time. The original anime premiered in 2001 and was produced by Xebec, the animation studio behind Love Hina and To Love Ru. Although the series is credited with introducing a lot of fans to the series, it has been criticized for being too different from the manga, to the point that the second half of the anime ignores the entire plot and mainly based entirely on a completely different original. The second anime series premiered in 2021 and was produced with the goal of creating a more faithful adaptation of Hiroyuki Takei’s original manga. The anime reboot is produced by studio Bridge, which previously created the anime adaptation of Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail, and has been generally well received by fans of the series.
Takei’s original manga series premiered in 1998 and sold 32 volumes until 2004. The series was a huge success, achieving a circulation of over 38 million copies. Takei continues the manga with a sequel, Shaman King Flowers, in 2021. The five-volume set tells the story of Yoh and Anna’s son, Hana Asakura. Thuong has continued to this day with the Shaman King: The Super Star spinoff series, which began serialization in 2018 and is also being written and drawn by Takei.
