Voice actress and singer Megumi Hayashibara confirmed on Tuesday that she sang Shaman King's "Osorezan Revoir" song for the video of the same name that was posted on Nico Nico Douga on October 21. The video features an illustration by Shaman King creator Hiroyuki Takei while Hayashibara's recording of the song as the character Anna Kyouyama provides the audio. Osorezan Revoir is the title of the 19th compiled volume of the manga series and an arc of the story.
The video received about 700,000 views within ten days of its posting. Fans questioned whether the art was actually Takei's and whether Hayashibara was really singing the song. Shueisha's official Jump X [Kai] magazine website also posted the video and confirmed it was created in collaboration with Takei and Hayashibara.
The "Osorezan Revoir" video was created to celebrate the revival of the Shaman King manga with a new 44-page story in Jump X [Kai]'s fifth volume on November 10. The manga short will depict a previously untold "zero story" about the main character Yō Asakura. According to the magazine, the manga short will be the first part in a series of short manga stories and lead up to a "Big Project" next spring.
