"We appreciate all the patience and support we've received from our fans while we worked to create the best possible manga experience for Shaman King," said Kodansha USA publishing president/CEO Alvin Lu. "This is the release Hiroyuki Takei's shonen manga classic deserves, and it will be accompanied by the whole compendium of its sequels and prequels. A lot here to thrill fans both new and old!"
Kodansha will also be rolling out four Shaman King spinoffs to English-language readers for the first time. Here's what's coming, and when:
- Shaman King Zero on October 13
- Shaman King: Flowers on October 20
- Shaman King: Red Crimson on October 27
- Shaman King: Super Star on December 8
Penguin Random House will be publishing print editions of these books beginning in February 2021.
"It's been over 10 years since I've completed Shaman King. But finally - at last - I can deliver the true ending to the story to the fans in America," says Shaman King creator Hiroyuki Takei. "It's a message from my heart, and I think it's a particularly important one in this day and age. I hope that it'll reach the hearts of many comrades."
