actually yeah that'd be phenomonial. Maybe give it the FMABrotherhood treatment and rush the start but give a lot of love to the tournament arc, that'd be great.

what? phenomenal or perhaps pheromonal?

>>136013945
I haven't gotten to Flowers but I heard it was canceled
>>136013813
I thought the only thing he didn't like was the published ending they made him do because of something wrong with his original run
>>136013651
i'd love to see it incorporate the heavier themes of the latter volumes

also, did ultimo ever end up getting finished scans or even digital rips of the volumes? i want to finish reading that

It's alright. It still manages to keep it's SK formula while everyone is grown up. Also MC is nothing like his dad so you either love him or you hate him.

>I haven't gotten to Flowers but I heard it was canceled
The magazine it was in went out of business. Author just has bad luck with magaznines. It'll come back eventually.

Oversouls were pretty cool. They were like more visually flexible Stands.

It's friendship train ending even makes since when you think about it. Hao wanted eternal peace and in order to do that he needed to end all human life. Yoh gave Hao love(his monther) which is sort of like saying you can't have peace without love. Love & Peace.

Maybe. But also, everyone constantly dying and coming back to life over and over really cheapened the concept of death in this series. It's arguably worse than Dragonball.

He doesn't hate Shaman King
But it was as he put it "a half hearted work"

Remember he had Butsu Zone canceled pretty early on and he always wanted to tell that story but he had to settle for something different
>>
>>136015507
Brave Heart. Once you heard the opening bars, it was like "Oh yeah, power of friendship time." Also, Taoren recovering to save Lyserg. Ahogerection is best erection.
>>
>>136017281
>everyone constantly dying and coming back to life over and over really cheapened the concept of death in this series
No nigga
That's an actual belief in Shamanism(when you die you get stronger)
And all the souls went to the Great Spirit anyways

Also why does everyone forget that when they headed into the Patch Dungeon and they kept reviving eventually Jeanne ran out of Furyoku pretty fast...so it's not like that shit didn't have any drawbacks and the whole concept was only used in the last 40 chapters or so...so not too bad

Asakura Yoh means marijuana leaf, if I remember correctly.
>>
>>136019118
Yoh means "Leaf"
Not sure what Asakura means...according to Google Translate translating the Kanji for Asakura "麻倉"(and you have to divide them to get a result otherwise it just translates it as "Asakura") it translates it to "Hemp Warehouse"...weird
>>
>>136013651
>rush the start
No,fuck that
Give it the treatment it deserves

I hated a lot of the things they changed in the beginning of the old anime
Like how Anna and Ryu met for example...that was terrible in the Anime

Maybe they could add some things though
Maybe they could extend Anna's fight with Hao(which was mostly off-screen) and show us Lady Sati battle with Enma Daioh at least(which was again completely off-screened)
>>
>>136019275
Yeah, I just went to Wikipedia to check it again. I remember the whole hemp leaf thing being a big deal when the show was still new.

Morphine and Eliza(have mercy, Dr Faust!) still make my heart doki^2. Hororo's ice Koropokkuru was pretty cool in her final form too.

Actually, all the giant oversouls were nice in their own way. I swear, one day someone's gonna post a "favorite mecha anime" thread and I'll probably reply Shaman King.

I would settle for Flowers restored or rebooted. I mean the past Shaman Kings objecting to Hao's genocide was cool as a tournament premise but we never got to know what the fuck was the Flower de Maize
>>
>>136019635
It is just a dub over the original opening by the way, and I don't know if the lyrics match.
But when I was younger I always thought it was the shit.

When I was younger, Shaman Kong was one of the first shueisha manga to be localized.
It was done by a French company and then translated to Dutch by one dude.
It was pretty awesome, because the company made exact copies of the original tankobon version. Same size pages, no translation of the sfx, AND A MOTHERFUCKING DUST COVER

And then they noticed nobody except for me read SK, and so they cancelled the series at nr 28, just before the series was completed.
Then years later I had to import the american version with
>Incorrect size because muh Murcin hamhands
> translation of sfx which throws off the original drawings
> fucking censors because MUH RACISM NIG NOGS
>changed the design of the cover of the original, I fucking hated this with all American mangas
>noooooo dust cover

Still irks me to this day. Fuck this world. Fuck America.

Of course, just make sure the Hao thing never happened and I'm sold. The very moment he appeared was the moment Shaman King went to utter shit. And holy shit the children thing felt like pure and unadulterated fanfiction bullshit.
>>
I would love a new Shaman King anime. I think the original was alright but if I remember it changed some things and had weird fillers. Cut all the extra shit out and having a decent studio properly adapt it would be amazing. I wouldn't even mind Princess Hao ending. In fact I would prefer it.

Maybe even do a remix/cover of the original OP song for the new one. If only...
>>
>>136019859
>Plus capitalism as the root of all evil is fucking awesome
That was a load of bullshit


He should have just made Yahabe into it's own series and not fuck with SK
>>
>>136019858
And to add even more pain to injury
They changed a lot of names and then suddenly changed them into the original names in the last 2 volumes or so for god knows what reason

And also the original version doesn't have the real ending either that's the Kanzenban version which still hasn't been released on the US and probably never will because Manga Publishing in the US is a joke

I heard the extra chapters got released in some other countries(like in Mexico and Brazil) as volume 33 but that's about it...not sure about other countries...though I suspect France did the same

That was the only decent part of Flowers you goddamn pleb
At least Sakurai/Death Zero seemed interesting for an oversoul choice

The bad parts were
>The shitty New Asakura Branch and their shitty kids
>Alumni...WORST ANNA EVER
>Ren's son
>Hana...omfg he was a bitch(he got a bit more bearable later but still)
>Tamao...shitty Anna clone is shitty

And the worst goddamn part of the manga was when that piece of shit generic edgy bitch revealed to have killed Jeanne
Fuck that shit...that is unacceptable I refuse to believe Jeanne went down to that bitch

The story was shit to fucking begin with

And the pacing was absolute dogshit throughout the whole manga
It was a monthly manga but Takei was still writing it like it was weekly and it was moving at fucking Snail's Pace the whole time
>>
Man all I wanted was to see adult Jean and an explanation how the hell she and Ren got together.
>>
All I wanted from Flowers, was just to see, the fucking, FIGHTER PILOT OVERSOUL. they teased and hinted at it and we never got to it.
>>
>>136022973
She kissed him that time she revived him...that's the best I could come up with

As for her seeing her as an adult...she gets killed off-screen in Flowers by some dumb bitch which pissed me off
Flowers was gay I refuse to accept it as canon
