Last month, the Netflix Geeked Week event was the talk of the town. With several announcements, the streamer has made it clear that they are going to have a busy schedule. One such striking announcement was the Shaman King reboot project. The reboot of the 2001 anime is currently up and running in Japan. Hiroyuki Takei is the original author of the manga. With more than fifteen episodes already out, it’s time for global viewers to enjoy the show.
The 2021 reboot by Bridge Studio has seen massive success in the Eastern territories. While Japan is running a few weeks ahead of us, binge-watchers will not be far behind. Netflix has come out with a trailer and a solid release date for the upcoming show. So, here is everything that you must know!
Shaman King Anime: Plot & Trailer
Both the premise and the trailer were revealed in the Netflix Geeked Week event last month. The official synopsis suggests that the new version of Shaman King will follow Asakura Yoh, who is persevering to hold the titular position. Much like every classic period drama, this one also projects a beautiful story of bravery and courage. Asakura’s struggles to beat his obstacles and challenge the hardships make up the plot of the show.
Moreover, the Shaman Tournament is the crux of the reboot. We can expect the arrival of some new characters aside from the originals. The latest trailer of the anime sets up the world that we are about to enter. With Asakura’s voiceover, fans get to know the real challenge in the first season. Here is the video:
What More To Expect?
The online release of Shaman King is almost confirmed. However, the producing companies are also set to release hard copy Blu-ray of the reboot soon enough. With a total of 52 episodes on the palette, Bridge Studios plan to sell the discs in four cours with 13 episodes each. Whereas, this will also be the order of upcoming seasons. This means that fans can expect at least four seasons out of Netflix.
The first two seasons will be available for sale on August 25, November 24, 2021. On the other hand, Seasons 3 and 4 will be available on February 23 and May 25, 2022. So, be sure to mark the calendar if you want the perks of extra-credit scenes.
