The Shaman King manga may have ended its 32-volume run in 2004, but that doesn't mean it's all over for Hiroyuki Takei's shonen action series. According to an announcement in volume 4 of Shueisha's Jump X magazine, Manta and co. are making a comeback via a short manga story in the following volume.
The volume in question is slated for November 10 in Japan, and the story will run 44 pages. It depicts a previously untold "zero story" about protagonist Yoh Asakura. The cover will also sport Shaman King, and the magazine will include a large poster.
Perhaps even more exciting is Jump X saying that this short manga is setting the stage for a "Big Project" next spring. We'll have to wait and see just what that is, but go ahead and start pondering the possibilities in the meantime.
