Manga author Hiroyuki Takei took a hiatus from manga due to busy work
The October issue of Shonen Magazine Edge’s Kodansha magazine revealed on Friday that the Shaman King: The Super Star manga, will go on hiatus as Takei is currently busy with other work. The magazine will announce the manga’s resumption at a later date.
Takei launched the manga in Shonen Magazine Edge in May 2018, after publishing the opening three chapters. Kodansha published the manga’s fifth compiled book volume on February 17.
Viz Media previously published the original Shaman King manga in English, and Kodansha Comics later released the manga in October 2020 digitally. Kodansha Comics is also publishing Shaman King: The Super Star in digital English, and it describes the series:
Can’t have enough kindness of SHAMAN KING ? Then go with Alumi, Death Zero, and other beloved SHAMAN KING characters in this action-packed spin-off, SHAMAN KING: THE SUPER STAR!
Kodansha Comics released the fifth volume on July 6.
Shaman King debuted in Shueisha in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1998. The series ended abruptly in 2004, although a reprint of the manga revealed a “happy ending” in 2009. Takei drew attention. A series of short stories titled Shaman King 0 in Shueisha with Jump X began in November 2011, and announced a sequel series titled Shaman king Flowers in the same magazine from 2012 to 2014.

The anime will adapt all 35 volumes of the new complete edition of the manga, which Kodansha began publishing in print volumes in Japan in June 2020.
