All 35 volumes of Shaman King will be made available on comiXology and Kindle beginning on October 6. They will be available for individual purchase, but also available on comiXology Unlimited, Kindle Unlimited, and Amazon Prime.

"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."
