Happy Birthday Us!

Posted by on

What an exciting 2018 it was! The Super Star and Red Crimson! Wow and wow! Though 2019 starts off with a bit of a hiatus in Japan... that doesn't mean that the 2nd half of the year will be any slower! Trouble keeping track of the Japanese releases? Use this helpful guide!

So thanks to all of you who have been around since the begining of time now that we are 14 years old. Shoot, that's makes us older than when Yoh was at the start of the Shaman King series!

March 4th, is our declared birthdate, by the way. But don't buy us any presents! Spend that hard earned money by supporting the official releases! Buy some of those Japanese eBooks, or that new Hao figure coming out this month!

So more The Super Star and Red Crimson is on the way! The last couple weeks have been busy, and getting hit with sickness the last couple of days didn't help. But as you know we'll keep continuing on!

Shaman King: The Super Star - Chapter 6

Posted by on

Read and download Shaman King The Super Star Chapter 6 And we're back with the second part of the Death Zero arc! The chapter title is a bit tricky. Hiroyuki Takei loves to do his word play with the chapter titles and this one is no different. To help get that feeling across, it could be "Fight" or "Flight" in the title. And the other thing Takei loves? Cheesy dad jokes. Who needs the Shaman Fight or the Flower of Maize, we got the full Takei experience right here!

It's finally February... you know what that means? The brand new Yoh Asakura figure will be coming out! Be sure to show your support and purchase the figure! There are a ton of options online, so shop around for the best price and show your support!

And plus, you can always show your support of the series by purchasing the eBooks online from locations like Bookwalker!

Read and download Shaman King Red Crimson Chapter 4

Hello, everyone! Been about 10 years since I made a post, but this is a special occasion! Happy New Year, and more importantly,

HAPPY REN DAY !
 
That's right! Today, Jan 1, 2019 is our favorite gold-eyed, purple-haired, milk-obsessed, tiger plushie owning, haughty, badass of a Chinese stud, Tao Ren's 33rd birthday! And what better way to celebrate such a special day than to release a chapter of Red Crimson in which Ren himself appears?!
 
So feast your eyes on this specimen of perfection as he works hard to bring home the milk/bacon with the help of Men! Jeanne's even making cheesecake to celebrate! As a die hard Ren fan, I cried many tears while QCing this!
 
So from everyone here at Mankin-Trad, we wish you and yours the happiest and SAFEST of Ren Days! Keep your loved ones close this year!
 
And don't open doors to strangers!

Shaman King: The Super Star - Chapter 5

Posted by on

Read and download Shaman King The Super Star Chapter 5It's everyone's favorite arc! Time for more Death Zero! If you remember back how Flowers ended we got stuck in a Death Zero arc. Well now it's back! But maybe we won't stick around for too long this time!

Did you know that earlier this month a new character book for Shaman King was released!? It's got a ton of great character designs from the original Kang Zeng Bang volumes all combined into a single book. IN FULL COLOR! Plus you can buy it online in case importing it is a bit tricky (but highly recommended too!). The physical copy is in a nice large format too!

So if you haven't already, be sure to buy a digital copy of the character book! It's mostly pictures, so you can get some enjoyment out of it without knowing any Japanese! Here's the steps to buy the digital copy:

1. Create a free Bookwalker account in English

2. Go here at Bookwalker for the "Shaman King Character Book 原色魂図鑑"

3. Add to your shopping cart!

4. Click the checkout and swap back into English for the next steps!

5. Enjoy and show your support for the Shaman King series!

Read and download Shaman King The Super Star Chapter 4Did you know that Shaman King The Super Star is the true sequel to Shaman King Flowers!? I know Red Crimson is great and all, but we got to stay on track with the main story too. So let's continue on with that story before we enter the next story arc.

Of course I need to give a huge shoutout to our translator for this chapter mjolnir114 who previously helped out with our Yahabe release! Thank you!!
