Shaman King (2021) returned this week, following a one-week hiatus. We're now only a few episodes short of the answer to the show's big question: Is Yoh Asakura going to become the next Shaman King?
If you're following the anime as it comes out, keep reading. Below you'll find all you need to know about Shaman King (2021) Episode 45, including its release date and time in Japan, as well as updates about the status of the series in the rest of the world.
Shaman King (2021) Overview and Episode 44 Highlights
Shaman King is based on a 1998-2004 shonen manga. As is the case with many popular works, the manga received an anime adaptation while still ongoing, meaning that the ending the creators intended for us never made it to our screens. Instead, the reboot is faithful to the manga.
Shaman King follows Yoh Asakura, who fights to become the best among shamans an all-powerful being with the ability to summon spirits and manipulate the world according to their will. To achieve his dream, Yoh must come victorious out of a competition that only takes place once every 500 years. At this point, we're well into the Shaman fight, and unless you've read the manga, it might be hard to predict the result!
Fans were a little disappointed by Episode 44, due to the perceived bad direction and poor pacing. As we move closer to the end, viewers would like the last few battles to be a bit more mind-blowing and less easy for the characters. Hopefully, the final episodes will be a worthwhile payoff.
