Kodansha and comiXology originals announced this week that Hiroyuki Takei’s shonen manga Shaman Kings will arrive on the platform in its entirety on July 28.
“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,” said Shaman King creator Hiroyuki Takei in the press release. “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.”
The popular manga about a young shaman in training was published in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1998 to 2004, and was adapted into a 64-episode anime in 2001. VIZ Media oversaw the English-language debut of both the manga and anime in 2003. This will be the first time the final three volumes have been released in English.
Kodansha USA Publishing will host a Comic-Con@Home panel: Shaman King: Then, Now & Tomorrow tomorrow at 2 p.m. Pacific. Tune in to learn more.
