The Netflix Anime Twitter account announced that the fourth batch of Shaman King episodes will begin streaming on May 26. A trailer has been released.

The anime ended its Japanese TV broadcast run in late April, after premiering in April 2021. A sequel has already been announced.

The show is the second anime adaptation of Hiroyuki Takei‘s manga, following an earlier adaptation from 2001. Netflix describes the show as:

Medium Yoh Asakura enters a battle tournament held every 500 years, competing with other shamans in a bid to become the all-powerful Shaman King.

The staff of Shaman King includes Jouji Furuta (The Seven Deadly SinsRevival of The CommandmentsUta no Prince-sama: Maji Love Kingdom) as director, Jouji Yonemura (Wave, Listen to Me!) as series composer, Sano Satohiko (Talentless Nana) as character designer, Masaaki Kawaguchi (Talentless Nana) as art director, Natsuko Ootsuka (In/Spectre) as color designer, Teruyuki Kawase (Talentless Nana) as photography director, and Yuuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia series) as music composer. Studio Bridge is in charge of the animation production. 

Meanwhile, the cast includes Youko Hikasa as Yoh Asakura, Katsuyuki Konishi as Amidamaru, Megumi Hayashibara as Anna Kyoyama, Romi Park as Tao Ren, Yoko Soumi as Lyserg, Motoko Kumai as Chocolove, Yuuji Ueda as Horohoro, Yui Horie as Jeanne, and Minami Takayama as Hao.

The Shaman King manga ran from 1998 to 2004 with 32 tankoubon volumes. The manga was originally published by Shueisha before being republished by Kodansha in 2018. It later inspired the 2011 Shaman King: Zero manga and the 2012 to 2014 sequel Shaman King: Flowers, which starred Hana. Various Shaman King video games have been released as well.

The Kodansha-published era saw the release of various light novel and manga spin-offs, as well as a new sequel titled Shaman King: The Super Star.
