If you are a Shaman King fan, you either start loving the occult or start watching the anime because of your love for the supernatural.
Now while we were all aware of the fact that Shaman King had spirits lurking around. However, there are certain Vampire Shamans too. Proud ones at that! The 16th episode talked about Ryu getting the spotlight.
The fight scenes, especially between Ryu and the Dracula, were impressive enough to entice us to watch the upcoming episodes.
Unfortunately, the 18th and 19th episodes of the anime Shaman King are getting delayed by two weeks due to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which are being held in Tokyo this year.
[#SHAMANKING Thank you for watching! ] Thank you to everyone who visited BS TV Tokyo! Television next time The 18th “Great Spirits and My Team” * Because of the special organization, the broadcast date and time will change.

The official website of Shaman King stated that the episodes, which were initially scheduled to be released on 29th July and 5th August respectively, will now be postponed to 12th and 19th August.
Back in 2004, the series ended abruptly without completing the plotline. The excellent thing here is that the suspension is unlike the last time because the production team has ensured us by revealing the postponed dates.
I am pretty sure that Shaman King fans such as yourself were highly disappointed because of the news.
But fret not, since we are not the only ones in the boat! Various anime series such as Love Live! Superstar!! are also being delayed and postponed due to the Olympic Games 2020.
Shaman King will have 52 episodes, and 35 volumes of the complete edition of the manga have been announced to be adapted into the anime.
I empathize with the difficulty of waiting for our favorite anime episodes to release. And if that wasn’t enough, we are further aggravated with it being delayed. But I’d suggest not to feel dejected because you can always watch the previous episodes again or re-read the manga!
