The Shaman King reboot in 2021 was a shōnen anime that we didn’t know we needed. Its engrossing magical plot, and snappy visuals similar to Soul Eater’s animation, were the perfect dose of nostalgia for fans of classic 2000s anime. Nevertheless, the 52-episode-long first season proved to be rather short considering the story’s scope, as such, the fanbase is wondering what’s the scoop on Shaman King: Season 2.
Interestingly, there’s good news and bad news. The bad being there technically might not be a Shaman King: Season 2, and the good is that a sequel anime is already under development. Much about the sequel hasn’t been revealed, but here’s a look at everything we know about it so far.
When Is Shaman King: Season 2 Coming Out?
UPDATE MARCH 2023: It has been confirmed that the sequel will be called “Shaman King Flowers” and it’ll be released in January 2024.
Currently, it remains unclear whether the sequel anime in production will arrive under the title Shaman King: Season 2 or with a new tagline. Whatever may be the case, the release date for the show hasn’t been revealed so far, but 2024 is shaping up to be a promising window since Netflix’s 2023 line-up appears to be stacked.
The anime will reportedly adapt the sequel manga to the original Shaman King. The sequel manga “Shaman King: Flowers” isn’t as long as the original, so judging from the number of volumes, the new series should feature no more than 13 episodes unless the studio decides to go for something original.
What Is Shaman King: Season 2 About? (Spoiler Alert)
Shaman King: Season 2, or whatever the sequel’s called, will follow the magical misadventures of Hana Asakura, the son of Yoh and Anna. The story is set after a 16-year timeskip, so there will be plenty of familiar faces, although they’ll have grown up quite a bit.
Hana’s a rather rebellious kid who even puts Yoh’s childhood laziness and fights to shame. His life’s next to boring in his eyes but that soon changes when Yohane and Luca, two members of the Asakura Family, arrive and try to kill him and his father for personal gain. As these mysterious foes have now appeared, Hana learns about the secret war between rival Shaman Houses, and so begins his own tale of becoming a symbol of peace.
Which Studio Is Making Shaman King: Season 2?
Studio Bridge breathed life into the 2021 reboot we all love and adore today. You might’ve already heard about the studio through its more renowned projects such as Fairy Tail, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens, which makes sense bearing in mind how similar and fantastic the visuals of all of there series look.
As stated before, details about the sequel anime are scarce so we can’t ever be sure who’s making it until official news breaks, but considering history, Shaman King: Season 2 should be animated by Studio Bridge as well.
Where Will Shaman King: Season 2 Be Aired?
The anime series is exclusively licensed by Netflix worldwide. Even if there is no Shaman King: Season 2, you can expect to catch the sequel streaming on Netflix when it releases.
At the time of writing, the 2021 reboot is available neither on Crunchyroll nor Funimation, and there aren’t even any Blu-ray discs to speak of. By the looks of it, the sequel anime will likely follow the same pattern of a Netflix only release, but as the air schedule hasn’t been officially announced, hope remains.
