According to some sources, there will be a new edition of the extremely popular and famous story entitled Shaman King. Ceertain as I am that you all know what I am talking about, let me note that シャーマンキング is a manga by Hiroyuki Takei and revolves around You Asakura and his road to becoming the ultimate Shaman. It was serialized by Weekly Shounen Jump (Shueisha) between 1998 and 2004 with a lot of following franchise including anime TV series, movies, trading card game and digital games as well. There was even a full reprint of the entire story entitled: Shaman King Kanzen-ban (the Perfect Edition).
The new manga will be a 44 paged story which will come out in Shueisha’s Jump X [Kai] magazine’s volume 4 on November 10, 2011. It will depict a ‘zero-story’, an untold by now part of the main character’s life. There will be several coloured opening pages and all will be bundled with a special poster. According to the announcements, this new short manga of Shaman King will be the beginning of something huge which will come out in the open next spring. Will there be a new Shaman King for all the grown-up children who loved to see the show in the past?
Also, the new date for the magazine’s publication is every 10th day of each month and not the 25th as it was until now.
