The Shaman King 2021 reboot anime has taken over not only fans of the supernatural genre but also everyone else. It brings us so much more than just typical occult-related stuff that it becomes overwhelming but in a good way.
You might wonder what’s so special about this reboot, as remakes of iconic anime always seem to disappoint. Well, for starters, the animation is far better than what we had in 2001, and the story doesn’t deviate from the manga.
Mangaka Hiroyuki Takei even referred to the 2021 version as the ‘perfect edition’ of his manga that will conclude with the proper ending. We’re finally getting the animated version of the story’s true finale, and the excitement is sky-high.
To tease us more, the Shaman King anime has unveiled a new key visual featuring the Asakura twins indicating a fierce clash between the two.

The visual reveals Yoh and Hao’s new Over Souls that look super cool and intimidating. While Hao is undoubtedly the most potent shaman out there, we still shouldn’t underestimate his equally talented brother, Yoh.
Episode 32 gave us some development in Yoh and Anna’s budding relationship, but the moment was ruined by yet another oni, summoned due to Anna’s powers. While we all know that Yoh will save the day eventually, we still can’t help but worry.
The upcoming episodes might give us a fierce reunion between the twin brothers that leads to even more epic fight sequences. Or, we might get something completely unexpected and mind-blowing. After all, it’s the Shaman King, and ANYTHING can happen in this universe.
As we get closer to this anticipated confrontation, I am honestly getting goosebumps while even thinking about it.
Yoh might not be that powerful yet, but Anna’s harsh training gotta have some effect on the young shaman. Even though Hao ends up winning the tournament, we can still be hopeful because the ending will be different this time.
