The January 2019 issue of Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine Edge has announced that Shaman King The Super Star, Hiroyuki Takei’s new arc for his Shaman King manga, will go on hiatus in the February, March, and April 2019 issues so that Takei can recuperate. The manga will resume in the magazine’s May 2019 issue on April 17, 2019.
The manga launched on May 17, 2018, after publishing three prologue chapters.
Shaman King began in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1998. The series abruptly ended in 2004, although a reprinting of the manga revealed a “true ending” in 2009. Takei drew a series of short stories titled Shaman King 0 in Shueisha’s Jump X magazine starting in November 2011, and published a sequel series titled Shaman King Flowers in the same magazine from 2012 to 2014.
Japanese publisher Kodansha is now listed as the trademark owner for “Shaman King” in Japan, Europe, and the United States. VIZ Media no longer holds the license to the manga. Shueisha originally held the rights to the manga in Japan.
