"It's been over 10 years since I've completed Shaman King. But finally –– at last –– I can deliver the true ending to the story to the fans in America," says Hiroyuki Takei. "It's a message from my heart, and I think it's a particularly important one in this day and age. I hope that it'll reach the hearts of many comrades."
"We appreciate all the patience and support we've received from our fans while we worked to create the best possible manga experience for Shaman King," said Kodansha USA Publishing President & CEO Alvin Lu. "This is the release Hiroyuki Takei's shonen manga classic deserves, and it will be accompanied by the whole compendium of its sequels and prequels. A lot here to thrill fans both new and old!"
The first spinoff, Shaman King Zero will be available October 1th, with Flowers available October 20th, Red Crimson, available October 27th, and Super Star available December 8th.
