Shaman King Episode 18 was all set to hit our screens this week, but a certain important event has caused the delay in the screening. This important event is nothing but the ongoing Tokyo Olympics. Many show makers are trying to ease the viewers with a light schedule by delaying shows. The same is the case with the next two episodes of the Shaman King anime. Besides, Netflix has changed the release slate for good.
For now, the fans of the anime are still recovering from the shock that was caused by the death of Dracula. Now that a new Shaman warrior is in the frame, a new fight is a call for the new episode. So, when is Shaman King Episode 18 coming out? From plot details to recap to solid release dates, we got you covered. So, without any further ado, here is all that you need to know about the new episodes.
Shaman King Episode 18: Plot Details & Preview
The title of Shaman King Episode 18 is “Great Spirit and My Team.” There are no specific hints in the title through which we can draw the plot of the upcoming episode. Nonetheless, there is more than enough foreshadowing in the previous episode through which we can judge the conclusion of the fight between Yoh’s teammates and Hao’s men. In the 17th episode, almost all of Hao’s minions were defeated by Ryu and his companions.
However, by its end, Shaman Michael arrives to eliminate Dracula for the murder of Hao’s man. This comes as a big shock to Ryu and the viewers alike. Shaman King Episode 18 is likely to move forward with the story of the Shaman Fight that is about to begin soon enough. The episode will also focus on the aftermath of the fight and the death of Dracula.
Previous Episode Recap!
In the last episode of Shaman King, we saw a gruesome battle between Yoh Asakura and Hao’s men. But the episode soon turned into a pool of bloodshed when Dracula killed one of the men to death. This brought guilt to Ryu’s heart, and he condemns the act immediately. The episode then transitioned to the past events of Ryu’s life when he trained with Asakura and his family. The episode also explored the relationship between Ryu and Spirit Ghost Tokageroh.
Cut to the present fight, Yoh’s team beats down Hao’s men easily. But by the end of the episode, we saw something implacably shocking. Shaman Michael arrived at the scene and murdered Dracula in cold blood. At this point, the episode ended with silence for the fans to digest the fact. Now, it will be interesting to see what the upcoming episode will have to present after this heart-rending goodbye.
