How’s it going? It certainly is a good time to be a Shaman King fan! Kodansha Comics USA hit a bit of a snag getting the those out, but we are looking forward to seeing those soon! No new release date has been set yet. You know we’ll keep you in the loop once they are out for you to purchase. Plus the print editions of the original manga start early next year!
With both Shaman King The Super Star and Shaman King Red Crimson coming out soon in English though, we will not be releasing any more of those chapters so you can continue to support the upcoming digital volume releases. That means our release schedule has opened up a bit, so let’s fill it in with some more new and returning projects!
Shaman King Marcos
Continuing after the events of Shaman King Red Crimson, the story shifts to X-Laws and their mission to locate Marco who has gone missing since the events at the end of the original manga series.
This is a current on-going series in Shonen Magazine Edge that is currently running Shaman King The Super Star manga. It currently functions mostly as a standalone story, with some small spoilers about the ending of Red Crimson in the beginning. The first volume of the manga will go on sale in Japan in Digital and Print editions on August 17th, and will be featured on the cover of Shonen Magazine Edge the same day.
We pick back off with the cliffhanger, Rod Boring has released the Barubuster the ultimate tool to take down the Jumbor 11-D, Baru Crow!
We have previously released the first 13 chapters of the series and we will continue releasing additional chapters of this ground-breaking series! We had previously released the original series, Jyuki Ningen Jumbor, but this series is the true reboot, and will continue the story much further than the original weekly run. Currently the series status is unknown in Japan, if it’s cancelled or just on a very long hiatus. But we have a bunch more to dig into this series, and we already have some chapters for you to get caught up!
Hyper Dash! Yonkuro
As a sequel to Zaurus Tokuda’s original manga Dash! Yonkuro by Hiroyuki Takei! The Dash Warriors, lead by Yonkuro Hinomaru, take to the streets to fight against the terrorist group “Dark Dominion” using their Mini 4WD!
This is an on-going series by Hiroyuki Takei since 2015, with new chapters releasing seasonally in the Shogakukan kids magazine Corocoro Aniki. The 3rd volume of this series just released earlier today in Japan in both print and digital formats.
For all of these series, we don’t have release dates yet, but we wanted to give you a heads up on what we are working on! And hope to have some of these out, in our trademark “soon!” We also have some other things we are working on as well, so some more surprises are on the way than just these. The downloads feature will also be making it’s return to the website very shortly. Thank you to all of our translators and staff that have helped with these projects along the way. And thank you, the readers, for your support over the years, and please continue that support by purchasing the upcoming Shaman King volume releases from Kodansha Comics USA!
