Shaman King, whose manga was published by Viz Media in the past and anime by Konami’s anime division 4Licensing Corporation, then known as 4Kids, saw serialization in Shonen Jump from 1998 – 2004, with a final arc to resolve the ending of the series in 2009. Takei also created a short story series known as Shaman King: Zero, as well as a sequel series, Shaman King Flowers, in Jump X from 2011 to 2014.

The official description of Shaman King is as follows:

When he takes a shortcut through a cemetery, Manta Oyamada meets a strange kid with headphones — surrounded by ghosts. The kid is the teenage shaman Yoh Asakura. Tapping the supernatural swordfighting powers of samurai ghost Admidamaru, Yoh fights Bokuto no Ryu, a sword-wielding gang member. But an even more dangerous opponent is stalking Yoh and Manta — a Chinese shaman who wants to possess Amidamaru.

Kodansha now owns the publishing rights to Shaman King in Japan, the United States and Europe.
