The streaming company released a new trailer for what it is calling “Season 1 Part 2” of the anime series, which will launch on December 9, 2021. It’s unknown exactly how many episodes will be in this new batch, but the first batch of episodes on the streaming platform had 13 episodes become available, and with the latest Blu-ray for the series released in November having episodes 14-26 on it, it’s likely that those same 13 episodes will become available to stream next week.

Shaman King began streaming earlier this year and has already aired 33 of its planned 52 episodes in Japan, with the 34th premiering today. The series began streaming on Netflix worldwide in August. This current anime series is the second incarnation of the manga, with the first series debuting in 2001, but being forced to deviate from the original source material as the manga was still being serialized at the time. The 2021 version of the anime will adapt the manga as a whole, making for a more definitive adaptation this time around.

“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 current incumbent to call upon the Great Spirit and shape the world as they see fit.”
