Shaman King's Takei Starts New Manga, Ends Ultimo, Jumbor in 2015
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Hiroyuki Takei's manga essay on October 15 in the first issue of Shueisha's Corocoro Aniki revealed that his Ultimo and Jumbor manga series will end sometime in 2015. In addition, Takei will begin a new series in the magazine titled Dash! Yonkurō on March 15, 2015 (pictured below). The magazine hints that Takei will tell a "new legend" of Hajiime Tokuda's Dash! Yonkurō manga, and that it will be "completely new."
More information about the new series will be unveiled on the magazine's official Twitter account and website at a later time.
The magazine also confirms that Takei's Shaman King Zero series ended along with Shaman King Flowers in Shueisha's Jump X magazine earlier this month.
Takei began his Karakuridōji Ultimo manga in Jump Square in collaboration with Marvel Comics' Stan Lee in 2009. Shueisha shipped the tenth compiled volume in Japan last November, and Viz will ship the same volume in English on November 4.
Takei began Jumbor in the Ultra Jump magazine in 2010, and Shueisha shipped the eighth compiled volume in July.
Dash! Yonkurō is a sports manga by the late Hajime Tokuda. It was adapted into an 1989 television sports anime.
