2 In Japanese learning journey (:

Shaman King Reboot 2021

Now that’s something I’m looking forward to in 2021!!

Was scrolling Facebook mindlessly this morning and saw this video shared by a friend and I’m like OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.

Shaman King was THE anime for me back in high school days and Anna was just girl-crush material. I also remembered how I would discuss the plot of Shaman King and Inuyasha with my good friend (crush HAHA) back then – over many many SMSes and MSN chat. (自曝年龄) Fond memories. I even bought the VCDs and still have them somewhere in the house.

Definitely excited for the remake. Honestly, over the years I don’t really remember the plot in detail, but Ryu 木刀の 竜’s search for his “Best Place” really speaks to me and after all these years, I still remember the scene at the bowling alley. /ahhh memories.


Now it’s time to replay the OST. It was, for a period, the most played songs on my playlist. Just listened to it and omg I can actually understand the lyrics now! My high-school self won’t have imagined that one day I would be able to understand Japanese. ♡

    I’m also terribly excited for this! SK’s opening song is what made me want to learn Japanese and the anime is what initially got me into anime/manga/Japanese culture back in 2006. I met some of my best online friends through discussions about it and I totally agree about Anna being such a girl-crush! I truly hope they stay faithful to the manga and give it the remake it deserves <3
