The official website of the new television anime adaptation of Hiroyuki Takei's Shaman King manga revealed on Thursday supporting cast, a second key visual (pictured) and promotional video. The anime reboot is scheduled to premiere on April 1 at 5:55 p.m. on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, TV Aichi, TV Setouchi, TV Hokkaido, and TVQ Kyuushuu Broadcasting. Netflix will stream the anime worldwide in 2021.

Cast
Johann Faust VIII: Takehito Koyasu (Gintama)
Mosuke: Masakazu Morita (Kingdom)
Pirika Usui: Rina Hidaka (Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari)

Chocolove McDonell: Motoko Kumai (Hunter x Hunter (2011))
Iron Maiden Jeanne: Yui Horie (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!)
Marco Lasso: Yuuichi Nakamura (Jujutsu Kaisen)

Megumi Hayashibara, returning as Anna Kyouyama, is performing both the opening and ending theme "Soul salvation" and "#Boku no Yubisaki," respectively.

Takehito Koyasu, Youko Soumi, Motoko Kumai, and Yui Horie are reprising their role from Xebec's 64-episode television anime that aired between July 2001 and September 2002.

This is so HYPE! Honestly loving the new art style. Doll girl looks so cute too. And Jeanne just wow. Same voice actors, full manga adaptation. This remake could not look better at this early stage. At least in my opinion.

Well, hopefully this is good. Kinda sad that this was picked up by Netflix, but I'm sure that a fansub group will pick this up.

People all complain about Netflix like it doesn't help shows get more seasons and what not frustrate me. Netflix helps the show out in general than people complain when they were just going to watch it illegally anyway Netflix or not.

Damn it Netflix, I was actually interested in watching this one weekly, and I'm not going to sail the seven seas cause I always, always get pop ups and stuff

Also I have a lot of other shows scheduled for spring, so one less makes it easier, but it still annoys me since I was REALLY excited to watch this one

True, I doubt the Seven Deadly Sins or Beastars would've been guaranteed new seasons if it weren't for Netflix(I can't say that for sure since I don't currently have the numbers on me)

You could use a ad blocker to not get pop ups, uBlock Origin is really good, i also use AdGuard and Popup Blocker Ultimate just to be on the safe side.

I always wait and I know I'm not the only one. There's a thousand other good anime to watch in the meantime.
