The staff from the Shaman King reboot anime is returning, with studio Bridge animating the sequel under the direction of Joji Furuta. Shoji Yonemura is in charge of the series composition, while Mayuko Yamamoto is doing character designs. Yuki Hayashi is composing the music.
The Shaman King anime is based on Hiroyuki Takei’s manga of the same name, which ran from 1998 to 2004. The first anime adaptation of the work was by studio XEBEC. It aired from 2001 to 2002 and had 64 episodes, but since it ended before the manga it never fully adapted the story. A reboot by studio Bridge started airing in the spring of 2021 in Japan: Netflix licensed it but without a simulcast.
Shaman King Flowers anime will adapt the manga written and illustrated by Hiroyuki Takei. The manga, a sequel to Shaman King, was serialized in Shueisha’s Jump X from April 2012 to October 2014. Kodansha USA licensed the manga in English, describing the plot as as:
The action returns in this brand-new sequel to SHAMAN KING! Hana Asakura finds that being the son of Yoh & Anna Asakura isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and his boredom has him itching for any kind of excitement. But when a fight comes straight to his doorstep, it’s from a place he least expects—his own family? The battle for Asakura supremacy begins!
