To be honest there were serious discussions on an anime remake, but... since we couldn't use the voice actors and music from the original work, I declined. Still, it would be nice to have another chance.
The Shaman King anime adaptation aired for 64 episodes between 2001-2002. 4Kids Entertainment licensed the series in 2003 and released a localized version on television in the United States.The original manga began in 1998 and abruptly ended in Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2004, though a reprinting of the manga revealed a "true ending" in 2009. Takei drew a series of short stories titled Shaman King 0 in Shueisha's Jump X starting in November 2011, and published a sequel series titled Shaman King Flowers in the same magazine from 2012 to 2014.
Takei has also worked on the Ultimo and Jumbor manga, and is currently serializing Nekogahara.
