Several years after its incomplete ending, a flier distributed at Jump Festa 2008 announced a Kanzenban reprint of the entire series. This came due to the slew of fans wanting a true ending to the series. The Japanese publisher Shueisha then officially announced that Shaman King would return in March 2008 as Shaman King Kanzenban, or Perfect Edition. This release reprints the entire series in 27 volumes complete with new clear image overlays on the covers, remastered art, and new chapters providing a conclusion to the series. Two volumes of the manga are being released each month with the final volume expected to be released in April 2009. It is unknown whether the official US editions of the manga will get the extra content.
