How many of you here are fans of anime? I’m quite sure that a lot of you are. I have been talking a lot about anime and so you already know that I’m quite a huge fan of anime myself. In fact, I find it to be one of the best forms of entertainment out there. It’s just that good. The way it is adapted from manga also makes me appreciate it that much more. And today we are going to talk about another such anime, which is Shaman King.
If you’re fans of anime, I am sure that you must have heard this name before at least once. Shaman King is one of the most awaited animes out there. And the name itself is quite famous because of its origins. The anime is adapted from the manga of the same name, which is one of the most influential manga worldwide. It has an ardent following all around the world and fans just love it.
Given the following that the manga had, Netflix decided to adapt it into their own tv show as an anime. The new anime serves as a reboot of the 2001 anime adaptation of the manga, which received generally warm reception from both critics as well as viewers. So it was quite a nice opportunity for Netflix, and they took all the advantage that they could from it.
Shaman King is a shounen anime, which is quite a popular anime genre, and was released by Netflix this year, with 13 episodes to boot. And to be honest, 13 episodes is not a lot for an anime, and many of us can just plow through that much in two sittings. So a second season and a continuation of the anime is a question that every fan is asking. And I’m going to answer that today. So keep reading till the end of the article to know whether Shaman King will return for a second season.
Talking about upcoming animes, there is another huge Netflix anime that I am really excited for. Spriggan: Release Date, Plot, All You Need To Know is one that you need to keep an eye out for. It is a science fiction anime with thriller elements that you are going to just love. Spriggan is some time away right now, but it should be on your list of animes to watch, regardless of the release date.
Shaman King: About the Anime
Coming to Shaman King, it is an anime that is adapted from the manga of the same name. It is a direct adaptation with very few or minor changes.
The synopsis for the movie goes as, “Shaman King follows the adventures of a 13-year-old shaman and his teammate a samurai warrior spirit, who traverse the world fighting evil spirits and misguided shamans on their journey to be the next Shaman King.”
So Shaman King is one that is focused a lot on the supernatural aspect of things, and is also one that will have you on the edge of your seats as Shaman King must take part in the Shaman fight, which puts the best in the world against each other, in a battle of glory.

Shaman King: Will It Return For Season 2
Now this is the question that is on every fans’s mind right now. And I completely understand where it is coming from. The first season for the show was quite short and the story feels really incomplete. And I’m pleased to tell all the fans that Shaman King will definitely be returning for a season 2. In fact, not just season 2. Shaman King is going to be running for 3 more seasons, as already indicated by Netflix. Netflix has completely planned out the way they are going to run the show. And it is going to be four seasons long. And we already have the blu ray release date for all the four seasons. They are:
- Volume 1 comes out on August 25th, 2021 | Episodes 1-13
- Volume 2 comes out on November 24th, 2021 | Episodes 13-26
- Volume 3 comes out on February 23rd, 2022 | Episodes 27-39
- Volume 4 comes out on May 25th, 2022 | Episodes 40-52
Now given the release schedule for the second season, I can estimate that the second season is going to come out on Netflix sometime around early November. While the third season is going to be released in February 2022, and the fourth and final season should be out by May 2022. So that is not really that long of a wait. And something I am really happy about.
