The fifth volume of Shueisha's Jump Kai magazine announced on Thursday that Hiroyuki Takei will launch Shaman King Flowers, the sequel series to his Shaman King manga, in the same magazine next April. The main character of the new manga will be Hana Asakura, the son of the original manga's protagonist Yō Asakura. Hana demonstrates abilities exceeding even those of his father.
The magazine had indicated in volume 4 in September that there would be a "Big Project" next spring. Takei is already starting a series of short manga about previously untold "zero stories" about Yō and other characters in the current volume.
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. Osorezan Revoir is the title of the 19th compiled volume of the manga series and an arc of the story.
Viz Media publishes Takei's Shaman King and Ultimo manga in North America.
