Due to the ongoing Tokyo Olympics, many channels and prime Japanese networks had to take a break from the streaming of regular shows. Shaman King Episode 18 was one such edition that is facing delay in the release. According to the set timings, the episode was supposed to release last Thursday. But Netflix is reconsidering the plan and changing the release schedule.
The plot of the anime is currently going through a hard twist. The last episode of Shaman King saw the death of Dracula. Much before fans could digest the fact that the makers just killed away from the character, the delay was announced. From the new release date to recap and a preview, we have it all for you. So, without any further ado, here is everything to know about Shaman King Episode 18.
Shaman King Episode 18: Plot Details & Preview
The title and preview of Shaman King Episode 18 were out much before the delay could be foreseen. The forthcoming episode is titled “Great Spirit and My Team.” As the name suggests, the episode might deal with the teamwork and playing spirit of the team members who are about to compete in the Shaman competitions. The last episode also ends on a cliffhanger as Yoh and Hao’s men are still in the midst of a fight. Ryu is the one who is shining the most in this scene. But the shock arrives in the form of Shaman Michael by the end of the fight.
To interrupt the fight, the Shaman arrives and kills off Dracula in a split second. This leaves the fight in a state of limbo. Shaman King Episode 18 is likely to look at the aftermath of the fight and, most of all, Dracula’s death. Let’s see what the episode holds in store for us!
Previous Episode Recap!
The last episode of Shaman King deals with a gruesome battle between two of the most anticipated rivals of the show. Though Hao himself is not in the scene, he did send his minions to deal with Yoh Asakura. The fight was decently building the rivalry until Dracula decided to kill one of the men. This triggers the other fighters, and they advise him not to take anyone’s life. But this decision does not pay off well by the end of the episode as Shaman Michael comes in with the police force to neutralize the fight. The episode ends with the death of Dracula without leaving any time for the audience to make peace with the fact!
Shaman King Episode 18: Release Date
Both the upcoming two episodes of the series are finding new release slates due to the Olympics. Shaman King Episodes 18 and 19 are currently running late with the pre-decided schedule. Thus, the latest episode will now come out on August 12, 2021. Moreover, the 19th edition will release on the week after this one.
