Digital Shaman King Manga Bundle – All 32 volumes for $111

Legally own digital copies of the ENTIRE original Shaman King manga series for $111.

Shaman King manga bundles

Volumes 1-15: $60 ($4 a volume) – Ends on May 10th

Volumes 16-32: $51 ($3 a volume)  – Ends on May 31st

If you already purchased the first bundle, now’s your chance to finish and get the second bundle! Volume 16 is where the edits get trimmed WAY back, since it stopped running in the monthly printed Shonen Jump. There is basically no new cuts made for these last 16 volumes.

This is the best way to show support for the Shaman King series. By purchasing these volumes you can show Viz that we want more Shaman King! Actions speak louder than words!

The More Yoh Know! – Update

Hello! Time for a quick update about The More Yoh Know!

I’ve posted up The More Yoh Know facts 12, 13, and 14 on the site. Last week I took a small “mid-season break.” I’ll also be changing the format very slightly. I’ll be doing 2 facts every Saturday on Patch-Cafe, instead of 1 on Tuesday and another on Saturday for the rest of the “season.” We’ll have a total of 30 facts for this first season.

So enjoy fact 15 & 16 being posted on Saturday here on Patch-Cafe!

Hiroyuki Takei to draw art for Kana Hanazawa’s “Blue Avenue” Concert Tour

As typical of Hiroyuki Takei while in-between large manga series, he often picks up smaller side-projects.  On July 12th, 2015 a new piece of color artwork will be featured in the brochure for Kana Hanazawa’s “Blue Avenue” Concert Tour. This brochure can only be purchased at the Sendai concert at that date and will cost ¥3,000. Each venue will feature a different artist. It’s not clear if this will be the cover art for the brochure, or if an insert inside.

Kana Hanazawa was not a voice actress for the Shaman King series, so this piece of artwork is most likely not-related to this in any way. Additionally, Kana Hanazawa works under contract for Aniplex and Sony Music Entertainment (Japan). All commercially-released music from Shaman King was released through King Records’ Starchild label.

You can read more about Kana Hanazawa on Wikipedia. Here concert tour page can be found here (in Japanese).

April Fools 2015: Shaman King on Blu-Ray with new episodes?

Probably should just file this under rumor for now… but…

IMG_1115There is so much goodness in this photo I can’t believe it!! Let’s go through the details…

  1. The original Shaman King TV anime series… being released on Blu-ray!
  2. It appears to be called “Shaman King Kang Zeng Bang”… not to be confused with the manga called the KZB? Ugh!
  3. Price is… 54,800yen!! That’s like $450USD!
  4. Release date… September 4th, 2015!
  5. All 64 episodes, and those 3 OVA episodes
  6. Yahabe OVA!
  7. Osorezan Revoir 3-part OVAs!!!?

Wait! Wait! New Shaman King anime episodes? Or are those the drama CDs? But those numbers don’t add up! Since there is only 2 CDs, and there are more “chapters” than just 3. It’s listed under the rest of things that are episodes.. so….

I just don’t know what to believe anymore!
