The content below is entirely editable.

The Shaman King Specials are omakes that begin before the first tournament event in Tokyo. Some of these omakes are based on holidays and are never dub.


The omakes are aired in Japan during  Jan 31, 2000 to Feb 12, 2004. The omakes has two publishers, Nippon Animation and Xebec. These specials relate to the Shaman King anime because episode 1 (Yumi no Katachi) probably takes place after episode 26 of Shaman King, and episode 2 (The Form That Friendship Takes Fight) revolves around numerous episodes that deal with key characters and their dreams and challenges of the anime.

These specials are not parallel with the manga because all of these specials revolve around the anime characters and storyline.
