“SHAMAN KING” will be broadcast on TV Tokyo from April 2021. Inuyama Inuko plays the role of Manta Oyamada, the first human friend of the main character Yoh Asakura, who is played by Yoko Hikasa. In addition, the full list of cast is as follows:
Yo Asakura: (CV: Yoko Hikasa)

The 2021 remake of “SHAMAN KING” will be directed by Furuta Takeshi at studio Bridge. Interestingly, Anna’s voice actress Megumi Hayashibara will also perform both its opening and ending songs (she already sang 2 OP and 2 ED songs for the original).
The reboot will adapt all 35 volumes of the now completed manga. Its author and illustrator, Hiroyuki Takei, previously said there was already an offer for a remake back in 2017. However, it wasn’t possible to bring back the original voice actors and soundtrack, so he refused it and hoped another chance would come by in the future. It obviously did come by, and it will premiere in April 2021!
