What Is Shaman King About?
Shaman King revolves around Yoh Asakura, a shaman who exists at the bridge between the living and the dead. Yoh wants to become the Shaman King and attain the ability to communicate with the Great spirit and take it upon himself to reshape the world using the wish of the Great Spirit. But to do so, Yoh must participate in the Shaman fight and compete with other Shamans for the title of the king of them all, the one who will emerge victoriously and be called the King.
Hao Asakura takes on the battle with Yoh and defeats him. His dream of a world for Shamans only comes true as Hao becomes the Shaman King but as fate has it, the journey of Yoh and his companions is far from over. The journey takes Yoh and his companions on a long wound trip to defeat Hao and reclaim the title that was lost to him.
What is the story of Shaman King Flowers: The Sequel?
The Shaman King has a number of spin-offs, prequels and sequel releases. Shaman King Sequel: Flowers is considered the sequel to the original 32 volume Shaman King Manga series. The teaser trailer for Shaman King Sequel: Flowers reveals that Hana Asakura will be the centre of this story. As Yoh and Anna’s son, there are a lot of expectations that come, including an interesting life.
Hana seems to be a rather bored person itching to find something exciting. The trailer shows him being attacked by a number of people, which he happily accepts as a challenge and takes them on. The situation is a bit more strange than it appears as this battle turns out to be the beginning of determining the best Asakura there is.
After the ending of the main Shaman King reboot anime, two teasers were released, which showed Hana and other new characters seven years apart. Shaman King Sequel: Flowers is expected to focus entirely on Hana along with his new team.
The key visuals and music are yet to be revealed in detail along with the cast and staff for the upcoming anime adaptation of the Flowers manga series.
When Will Shaman King Flowers Release?
Shaman King Sequel: Flowers has only announced its ongoing production status along with a preview trailer that stars Hana Asakura. The most likely opportunity for the release of this anime is the 2023 anime calendar, which could be as early as Winter 2023. A Winter to Spring 2023 release window would be ideal for the return of the series.
The manga for Shaman King Sequel: Flowers spans only 6 volumes which means that it could be adapted into a single or split cour series. Ideally, 6 volumes could easily be covered with a split cour release if the anime adaptation stays true to the manga.
Where Can I Watch Shaman King Flowers English Dub?
Netflix streamed the new Shaman King Reboot series in 2021 along with other platforms like Bilibili.

The TV networks for Japanese broadcast will be announced shortly before release.

“Shamans possess mysterious powers that allow them to commune with gods, spirits, and even the dead. High schooler Manta Oyamada doesn’t know much about them, but that changes fast when his class welcomes a new transfer student from remote Izumo: Yoh Asakura, a shaman in training! Although he may just be starting out, Yoh’s dream is a big one: to become the Shaman King, the one and only shaman who may commune with the Great Spirit and help remake the world for the better. But the road to this pinnacle of spiritual power runs through the Shaman Fight: a gauntlet of battles with rival mediums who call forth dizzying powers from the world of the dead in their own bids for the crown. It’d be nice if Yoh had a little more time to train and mature…but the Shaman Fight is only held once every 500 years, so he’s going to have to grow up fast!”
