An earlier TV anime adaptation was released in 2001, prior to the 2021 anime series. The latter is currently streaming on Netflix and recently concluded with a total of 52 episodes. 

Kodansha USA releases the Shaman King: Flowers manga in English and describes the synopsis as: 

Hana Asakura finds that being the son of Yoh & Anna Asakura isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and his boredom has him itching for any kind of excitement. But when a fight comes straight to his doorstep, it’s from a place he least expects—his own family? The battle for Asakura supremacy begins!
