Shaman King Announces 20th Anniversary Celebration Plans

Hiroyuki Takei’s Shaman King was one of the common motion manga and collection again within the early 2000s, however it’ll in all probability all the time be remembered for its truncated and abrupt ending. Although the collection ultimately got here again and Takei revealed the “true” ending to the collection, it did not fairly match the affect of that preliminary launch. It’s been 20 years because the manga first was revealed in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump, and the collection might be celebrating this monumental anniversary in Japan with a particular museum exhibit. This exhibit might be transferring all through Japan from the tip of the 12 months to early 2020.

First opening on the Space 634 within the Tokyo Solamachi retail advanced in Oshiage, Tokyo on November 23rd to December 4th. From there the 20th Anniversary exhibit will open on the Abeno Harukas Kintetsu retailer contained in the Abeno Harukas skyscraper in Osaka someday in January subsequent 12 months, and can cap issues off with a exhibiting on the Tooku Nippo Shinmachi Building in Shinmachi, Aomori.

Shaman King was initially created by Hiroyuki Takei for Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in 1998, and has been collected into 32 volumes. The manga was licensed for an English language launch by Viz Media, and was tailored into an anime collection by Xebec. This is almost certainly the type of the collection that almost all followers will acknowledge because the English language broadcast of the anime grew to become one of many foremost pillars of 4Kids Entertainment.

Running for 64 episodes in whole, the story follows Yoh Asakura, a shaman who’s a medium between the worlds of the dwelling and the useless. He enters into the Shaman Fight, a event between shamans held each 500 years, with the intention to turn into to contact the Great Spirit and turn into the Shaman King, one who is ready to reshape the world in any manner they need.


The collection was lately revived with the particular manga launch, Shaman King The Super Star, however not a lot is thought concerning the new manga entry because it has but to formally launch outdoors of Japan. Takei had reportedly ended the manga’s authentic run on account of a mixture of fatigue and feeling like his story fell into shonen traps, however later launched a “Perfect Edition” for the story with an ending to the collection he initially envisioned. But the ending to the story almost certainly fell to the wayside for a lot of followers because it did not arrive till 5 years after the unique abrupt ending.
