Then - Saturday morning, edited to heck, US theme song.

Now - Streaming uncensored, both languages the click of a button.

A lot changes in 15 years, huh?

wasn't that long ago i rewatched the 4kids dub of the original shaman king anime and compared to other hackjob dubs they had done around the same time

Shaman King was nowhere near as bad

regardless the new shaman king anime has had not so favorable feedback from fans

mostly due to how rushed and lackluster it feels(this has 52 episodes as opposed to the 64 episodes the original had)

it jumps from scene to scene so rapidly it'll make your head spin

so i wouldn't use it as the best example....this is a low budget production
