Earlier today, Hiroyuki Takei took to Twitter to answer some more questions directed towards him. Previously he mentioned that he’s working on a continuation of the Shaman King Flowers manga series. In relation to a question about when will Shaman King continue he responded with (with English translation by Dit following):
“I can’t say when it will start again, but I’m getting things ready for the 20th anniversary! “
The Shaman King manga started in the Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on July 20th, 1998 in the 31st issue. This would put the 20th anniversary in 2018. Depending on how you read this, it’s clear that there will be more Shaman King by 2018, but it could mean there are multiple things! For example, the new Shaman King manga could be coming out in 2017, with something like a new anime series for 2018. Currently there is no new Shaman King releases officially announced in Japan.
Hiroyuki Takei also posted the following image and text (again with English translation following):
“Speaking of Flowers and such. I also made a stop in Misawa when returning home.”
This is a photograph from the Misawa Aviation & Science Museum located in Aomori, Japan. In the later chapters of the Shaman King Flowers manga, the story is features characters in the World War II timeframe, which the plane above was from. The Misawa Aviation & Science Museum has a small English website and a larger Japanese website.
Thanks Dit for the English translation!
