The first two parts of Shaman King on Netflix were a huge success. However, the tiring schedule of releasing episodes in batches annoyed fans waiting longer than the Japanese fans. After a long wait, Shaman King Part 3 is finally coming to Netflix! The rebooted series is adapted from Hiroyuki Takei’s original manga series. To know more about the third instalment, continue reading the article!
In contrast with the original anime series, the Netflix adaptation follows the manga closely. And in the upcoming third part, we’ll finally get to witness the events which Takei had envisioned. So, does that mean there won’t be Shaman King Part 4? Well, that’s a topic for another day. But hopefully, if ratings remain consistent, you can expect more content from the creators. We are considering that Takei agrees to continue with the story.
Shaman King is a story of a thirteen-year-old boy called Shaman and his partner, a samurai warrior spirit. They live an adventurous life, exploring the world and fighting evil entities. But they do all of this for a reason: to become the next great Shaman King. The original anime, which premiered a long time ago, did not follow the later parts of the manga series. This is because, at that time, Takei was still writing the manga. Hence the creators had to continue with the anime as per their terms.
But if you’re a fan of Shaman King and want to see the events written in the original manga series visually. Then you can stream the first two parts of it on Netflix! As the third part is coming out soon, your golden chance is to catch up on the missing content.
Shaman King Part 3 Release Date
Shaman King Part 3 will return to Netflix on 13th January 2021. The 3rd part will continue from the 26th episode and consist of 11 episodes in total. You won’t stream the third instalment on Crunchyroll or Funimation. To watch it, you’ll have to have a Netflix subscription.
It is believed that the entire franchise consists of 52 episodes. The third part will end its run with the 37th episode. So, yes, there is a possibility of Shaman King part 4. Hopefully, Netflix will let us know about its renewal status following the premiere of the third instalment. The show’s ratings on MyAnimeList have been phenomenal, which gives us hope for the bright future of the anime.
Moreover, if you expect all 13 episodes to drop on 13th January, you are wrong! Because most likely, Netflix will yet again adopt the weekly schedule for the new batch of episodes.
Shaman King Part 3 Cast
The third part will also feature similar characters. There might be a few more additions to the characters. But if you’ve read the manga, then they won’t come as a shock to you! The following characters (and their voice actors) are confirmed to return for Shaman King Part 3:
- Opacho (Hayashibara Megumi)
- Ching Tao (Shibata Hidekatsu)
- Amidamaru (Konishi Katsuyuki)
- Chrysler (Miki SchiniChiro)
- Asakura Hao (Takayama Minami)
- Asakura Youmie (Aono Takeshi)
Shaman King Part 3 Plot
The official synopsis of Shaman King provided by Netflix is:
“Shamans are extraordinary individuals with the ability to communicate with ghosts, spirits, and gods, which are invisible to ordinary people,” reads the official synopsis for the manga. “The Shaman Fight—a prestigious tournament pitting shamans from all over the world against each other—is held every five hundred years, where the winner is crowned Shaman King. This title allows the incumbent to call upon the Great Spirit and shape the world as they see fit.”
As the third part is the continuation of the previous 2 parts, you can expect a lot of action in it! In the second season, we saw Yoh and the company searching for Patch Tribe and Hao’s troublesome past. You had to keep up an intense fight in the second part. And we are sure that the situation won’t become any more accessible in the third part either. There will be more challenges for the characters in the upcoming instalment. This is all that we can say about the plot details so far. You’ll find out more about it on the 13th of January!
