The official website of the new television anime adaptation of Hiroyuki Takei's Shaman King manga revealed additional cast on Wednesday. It is scheduled to premiere in April 2021 on TV Tokyo.

Horokeu Usui: Yuuji Ueda (Kill la Kill)
Kororo: Megumi Nakajima (Honzuki no Gekokujou: Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan wo Erandeiraremasen)
Jun Tao: Michiko Neya (Koukyoushihen Eureka Seven)
Lee Pyron: Tooru Sakurai (Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu)
Tamao Tamamura: Nana Mizuki (Senki Zesshou Symphogear)
Ponchi: Takumu Miyazono (Haikyuu!!: To the Top 2nd Season)
Konchi: Noriaki Kanze (Pokemon (2019))

Yuuji Ueda, Michiko Neya, and Nana Mizuka are reprising their roles from Xebec's 64-episode television anime that aired from July 2001 to September 2002.

The lead cast and staff were announced in September, and additional cast and staff were revealed in December. Much of the main cast are also returning from the original anime series.

The new series is being directed by Jouji Furuta (Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu, Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold) at Bridge, with series composition by Shouji Yonemura (Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu, Death Note script). Toshihiko Sano (Mairimashita! Iruma-kun) is designing the characters.

They should update Yoh's face to look more goofy

Now he does not look like the guy we all fell in love with

Don't change to change. Only change stuff when it's bad and when you think that you can make it better

^ I think Yoh's new face design looks perfectly fine
no need to look goofy, he's the type of character who is more relaxed, laid back, so his new design shows that perfectly

Glad that they brought Mizuki Nana back to voice Tamao. I'm sure her scenes are gonna be super adorable now. Don't have any opinion on the rest.

Oh and the new character designs look perfectly fine including what we've seen in the trailer. I'm actually fairly optimistic for once.

I was glad to see Nakajima doing some VA work again but turns out it's pretty much a non role. Wasn't that creature just making some noises?
