The 35th edition of Hiroyuki Takei’s supernatural adventure “The Shaman King” was first published in the late 1990s, captivating viewers with epic tales of shamans, spirits, or how they all exist within a legendary world of fantasy.
The show inspired a series of anime of the same name, which debuted on Cartoon Network and Fox Kids in 2001 and was later adapted for an American audience. More than 60 episodes of the series have solidified the viewers’ mental source. However, the creator, Seiji Mizushima, later revealed that the last half was ordered by the original manga publisher rather than his creative vision.
There was a rebooted series in 2021 that offered an entirely new perspective on a fantastic familiar story, allowing audiences to enjoy a brand new take on the “Shaman King.” While it has only been broadcast in Japan up to this point, US viewers will be able to watch it when Netflix launches in August. Everything you need to know about this show is right here.
According to What’s On Netflix, the first season of Shaman King will be available on Netflix on Monday, August 9th. The anime series premiered in April 2021 and will conclude later this year on the Japanese television network TV Tokyo. The first 11-episode season will be released in the United States in August, with subsequent seasons following later in the year.
The total number of episodes in the series will now be 52, divided into four parts. The series is set to begin.
This series, which aired 64 episodes from 2001 to late 2002, was slightly shorter than the original anime adaptation by “Shaman King.” The reboot is expected to be completed later this year in Japan.

Expected Plot of ‘Shaman King’
Yoh Asakura, the twin brother of a reincarnated old shaman, wins an intense tournament and becomes the next Shaman King — a title given to those who are incredibly strong and skilled with earth spirits.
On the way, he meets Manta Oyamada, an apparently ordinary middle school student who discovers that one day he can see spirits while fleeing assailants. Manta, also known as Amidamarau, is an old samurai warrior.
